Liebster Award

What is the Liebster Award?

“Liebster” is a German word meaning beloved or dearest.  In the blogging world, the Liebster Award is online recognition given by bloggers to other new bloggers for enjoying or valuing their work. It is meant to highlight and credit favorite new up and coming blogs within our writing community.



The rules of this award:

  1. Acknowledge the blog who nominated you and display the award.
  2. Answer the 11 questions the blogger gives you.
  3. Give 11 random facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate 11 blogs (tough call, yikes!)
  5. Notify those blogs of the nomination.
  6. Give them 11 questions to answer.

Nel’s Questions:  

  1. If you could have one date with any celebrity, who would it be and why?  If I had been asked this question 12 years ago I would have named soooooo many male celebrities then come to the realization of GIRL YOU HAVE FLIPPED YOUR MIND – CRAZZEEEEE!! They don’t have time for you! But now that I’m more mature (didn’t really want to say older) and happily married and I were going on a fun hang out, no pressure date – I would love to hang out with Sandra Bullock.  I’ve always loved her and think she would be a lot of fun.  If these two persons were still alive I would love, love, love to hang out with them – wouldn’t even have to go anywhere – Prince and Ray Charles.  I love these two men for their incredible talents and what their music has done for me in my life.
  2. King’s Landing or King Arthur’s Court? King Arthur’s Court
  3. Which is cooler: dinosaurs or dragons? (that’s a trick question just sayin’) Definitely dragons
  4. Have you ever seen a double rainbow? Yes, more than once.
  5. Would you choose to fly like a bird and roam the sky or swim like a whale and roam the deep sea? Fly like a bird – Fly like an Eagle to the sea, fly like an eagle let my spirit carry me, I want to fly like an eagle til I’m free…..
  6. What’s your favorite Disney movie and why? I have to soooooo many but Dumbo is my favorite.  I fell in love with the song Baby of Mine and couldn’t wait to sing it my baby.  
  7. If you had the means to invent something, what would it be? I know I have an answer for this but darn it- that aha moment is just not happening!
  8. Why did you choose WordPress as your blogging platform instead of say Blogger or Wix? WordPress was the first name I saw when googled how to start a blog.
  9. What’s the one thing that makes you smile every single day? With the sake of sounding so girlish and love sick corny – but being completely honest  – my husband, Robin. 
  10. If you could live in a book world, which one would it be and why? Oh my,  I enjoy different book genres and am not sure if I can pick just one book.
  11. Do you like pina coladas? (I may or may not be humming in my head) I do like pina coladas, my first alcoholic beverage. 

Robin’s 11 random facts:

  1. My favorite car, since about the age of 6 (no lie), is a jag.
  2. I played the clarinet in middle/high school and later joined the color guard in the HS marching band.
  3. I attended 8 different elementary schools and 3 different high schools. I learned very young in life and real quick how to outwit, outsmart, fight off  all types of disasters, be outgoing, outspoken and make friends.  I learned how to survive….
  4. Before my father passed asway,  I was a preacher’s kid (PK)-that may explain a lot!
  5. I love to drive fast cars
  6. I so want to go to England, Switzerland, Ireland and Italy
  7. You think I would be fluent in Spanish (after 12 years of marriage to a Hispanic) but, for the life of me can not learn Spanish!
  8. I tried learning Italian – let’s just say that didn’t go as planned
  9. I hate exercising.  Therefore, I will never be a size 0 (unless I take other drastic measures-oh well that won’t be a problem I LOVE FOOD)
  10. I love gardening but can not stand putting my bare hands in the dirt. Dirt under my fingernails is torture for me!
  11. I wanted to join the army – be on the front line – but could not because of my knees (I now proudly display four hideous scars hiding four screws located above/under my knee caps).

Robin’s Questions: 

  1.  What is your favorite movie?
  2.  Where was your last, best vacation?
  3.  Who is your favorite author and why?
  4.  What is your most prized possession?
  5. Pets – Cat or Dog?
  6.  What is the most delicious food you have ever eaten?
  7.  What is your favorite quote and by whom?
  8. If you could go back in time and tell yourself something when you were at school, what would it be?
  9. What is number 1 on  your bucket list?
  10. What is your favorite topic to write/blog about?
  11. If you were granted three wishes would would they be?


I’m still trying to get started in the blogging world and don’t have many to choose from so for now, I will pick one nomination.

Have a great day!

  1. HAHAHAHAH I LOVE your answers! And I’m married too but I’d drop my husband in 5 seconds for a night with Idris Elba. He knows it too! I also try to learn Spanish and just can’t! I get bored. Also, I hate exercise and LOVE FOOD too!! I’m like a size 2 but I don’t eat like one and if I didn’t have some crazy genetic pool, things would probably be different. #9 is not corny at all. Its beautiful! <3<3 Thank you for answering my questions! I have to nominate you for everything. Your answers are gold!
