Heidi and Kara nomiated me for the Leibster award! Thanks girls!

What is a Liebster Award? Well, the word liebster is German literally meaning dearest or favorite. The award recognizes new and upcoming bloggers with less than 200 followers who deserve some kind of recognition and support for their contribution.

The rules...
1) Each person must list 11 things about themselves.
2) Answer the 11 questions that the tagger has set for you PLUS you MUSTcreate 11 questions of your own for the 11 people you will nominate with this award.
3) Choose up to 11 bloggers linking them to your post.
4) Go to their page and inform them of the nomination.
5) Absolutely NO tag backs.
6) Remember to ONLY tag bloggers with less than 200 followers

Okay, 11 things.
1. I am listening to a musical at the moment - The Scarlet Pimperel
2. I love cheese crackers
3. I have two pet mice
4. I should finish the crayon art that is lying in the storage room
5. I went to the grocery store
6. I like bright colors
7. I am getting tired of talking about myself
8. I am kind of tired right now
9. I am typing
10. I didn't realise it was so hard to say 11 things
11. I'm done now

Now, answering Kara's 11 questions...
1. Paris, or England :)
2. A printer
3. Almost a year ago
4. Grass and trees
5. Ooh, that's hard. Although I love all your blogs, I would probably have to say Talia at Girlz of God.
6. Probably going on the "Two-week trip" when I was 5 (I think) and calling myself "Miss Coody". My parents were the students and I was the teacher...
7. Do I have to say? :) Okay, how 'bout when I made a joke at a wedding only meant for two people to hear...then everyone heard it and laughed! That was very awkward!
8. FaceBook. I don't have a Pinterest account, so I can't really compare, though.
9. The Bible:)
10. I got to meet Anthony Horowitz, an author, while I was in the hospital, and the prime minister of England several years ago, as part of Dreams Come True's 20th anniversary!!! :) That was so neat!
11. No.

Now, 11 questions from Heidi...(well, the answers to the said questions)

2. Yes, Lordwilling
3. Lived in? Two.
4. Homeschool my whole life so far:)
5. Almost a year.
6. Josh Groban and musicals
7. Paris
8. Yes I am! :) Praise the Lord!
9. That's hard... Either The Chronicles of Narnia, Horatio Hornblower, Les Miserables or something I forgot all about... (I have a lot of fave movies)
10. See number 7 of pervious list :D
11. Does England count?

Oh I forgot to ask for 11 questions!
1. Why did you start blogging?
2. Do you like head phones or ear buds better?
3. Do you play an instrument?
4. Are you learning a foreign language?
5. Do you enjoy math?
6. Do you like singing?
7. What are you looking at right now?
8. Do you drink out of a cup, the faucet, a disposable water bottle, an aluminum water bottle, a plastic water bottle, or something else (if so, what?)?
9. Do you keep a journal?
10. Would you wear purple glasses?
11. Would you make a paper mache hot air balloon?

That was fun. :D

Thanks girls! :)

Okay, nominating people...
1. Slipping Through My Fingers
5. Anyone who wants to do it :) I think a bunch of people have already been nominated for this one, so that's why I'm stopping. Doing all these awards at once is confusing, I can't keep track of who's won what! :) Maybe organization isn't such a great idea...just kidding :)

Then Kara awarded me again! Thanks dear!

"Here is what the sunshine award means, "bloggers who positively and creatively
inspire others in the blogosphere." Of course all awards have rules for awarding people. Rules below. (Please read with care if you have been awarded)"

First, the nominee must
thank the blogger that nominated her and link back to
her blog. Next she must nominate ten bloggers for the
award, and let them know. Then, she must answer a
list of ten questions and post to her blog. Finally, the
Sunshine Award button must be posted on the blog

Okay, ten questions...I guess I have to make them up.

1. What number comes after 1? 2
2. What number comes after 35? 36
3. Why do you keep talking about numbers when you don't like math? Yo no se
4. Why did you just speak Spanish? I don't know
4. What does "Yo no se" mean? I don't know.
5. Why did you write "4" twice? It was an accident.
6. Why don't you know what "Yo no se" means? I don't know.
7. Then what does it mean? I don't know.
8. Are you confused? No.
9. Why not? I don't know.
10. Why don't you know? I don't know.

All I can say is, that's what happens when I have a conversation with myself. :)

I'd like to nominate...

For the Sunshine Award...
1. *Writings of a Passionate Girl*
2. Being a God Girl
3. Encouragement For Everyday Struggles

Anyway, I put all these awards in one post. I'm not trying to show off or anything, I'm just trying to be efficient... :p Thanks to everyone who awarded me!



  1. P.S. What are your 11 questions? :)

    1. Oooh good point! I better go put those on! haha

  2. Thanks for awarding me Kara!! You are so sweet!!

  3. daww!!!!! thanks! i'll post them in a bit!

  4. Hey Kara!
    Was reading this post (you have a very nice blog by the way:)), and wondered if I could also do the sunshine award, since you only nominated 3 people instead of 10?


Comments make my day! :) Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I often reply, so please check back!
