Liebster Blog Award

Kiri over at My Lovely Life gave me the liebster blog award. I have never done one of these before and I am not very computer savy, I know pretty funny since I'm a blogger or at least I play one on TV! :) Anyway this is how it works.
1. You must link back to the person who gave the award to you (as a small thanks :).
2. Post eleven things about yourself (the version I was given says this, I know some of the other versions don't. It's fun, play along!).
3. Answer the questions the person giving you the award has set for you.
4. Create 11 questions for the people to answer that you have given the award to.
5. Choose people to give the award to and link them in your post.
6. Go to their blog and tell them.
7. You can't give the award back to the blogger who gave it to you

11 random things about me...

1. I am absolutely terrified to put my feet in water that I can't see the bottom of. I'm the cool one at the beach with water shoes. :)
2. My husband was my first and only boyfriend and I'm so glad that's how it worked out!
3. I used to love running, I ran track 7th grade through college. I would love to be able to run a 5k again some day.
4. I'm the baby in my family, I have four older brothers that were all teenagers when I was born.
5. My parents are in their mid 70's and they still work 6 days a weeks running their next to new business.
6. I love preppy clothing, khakis, argyle, button downs..........but my hubby has absolutely no interest in clothes unless they are carhartt.
7. My hubby and I spend a week camping in the Adirondacks together every August. This will be our fourth year and we can't wait! :)
8. I am a pretty avid gardener, but I knew absolutely nothing about it when we bought our house 5 years ago. 
9. I was saved when I was 5 years old. I attended Christian school kindergarten through college and I'm very thankful for all the sacrifices my parents made for me to have that education.
10. We have a sweet little doggie named Ella. She is a Pomeranian/Shih Tzu mix and she is our baby right now! :)
11. I am also an aunt, I have 3 nephews. Morgan is 16 (still can't believe that one because I was 16 when he was born), Nicky is 12 (He has his own lawn mowing business already) :) and Colin is 10 and is the star of his pop warner football team, he's also extremely fast so I'm hoping he will run track like me when he's older! :) 
Kiri's questions...
1. What is your favorite feature on yourself?
I would have to say my eyes, people always comment on how they are big like a little child's eyes.

I always thought I would want to live in Australia, but now that I'm older I really just love where I live now.

When people in the grocery store use their cart as a weapon and push you out of the way! Seriously its one of my biggest ones!

  1. So happy to see that you did this! I so agree about wanting to have your house done! I don't think that ever happens least for us, once we get something done we find 15 other things to start on! lol

  2. Hi Susan! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment over on my blog! Isn't it funny the way "blogland" causes all sorts of connections? I was so excited when Kiri gave me the award- sometimes you wonder if anybody is out there ready any of it! :) I enjoyed that this little award made me think and put some real honest stuff out there & I love that it helps everyone get to know each other a little bit better!
