Liebster Blog Award #3!

 As I briefly researched this award, I found out its very similar to a chain letter. There are a couple of reasons why I think it's better though. Reason One: This is an excellent tool to meet other bloggers. I prefer this method over the "If You Really Knew Me" posts circulating the blog world. Reason Two: bloggers nominate each other because they want to get to know each other. To me it's akin to a compliment from one blogger to the other.   
 Without further discussion, here's my post about me, (which sounds weird to me.)

The Liebster Blog Award is given to bloggers by bloggers. It is a way to acknowledge each other and say “you’re doing a great job”. It is for blogs with 200 or less followers, so it’s also a great way to spread the word about smaller blogs and get them more readers and followers!
When you receive the award, you post 11 random facts about yourself and answer 11 questions from the person(s) who nominated you. You pass the Award onto 11 other blogs (make sure you tell them you nominated them!) and ask them 11 questions. You’re not allowed to nominate the blog(s) who nominated you!
1: I love travel and have been to many foriegn countries.
2: I love purses, wallets, shoes, mugs, luggage, backpacks and may have a problem.
3: I am very snap happy with my canon elph.
4: I love animals but kitties are my favorite.
5: Purple is my favorite color but I love all colors.
6: I have a mini cooper that I share with hubby but we need a truck.
7: I'm in a band called The Copa Reefer Band and I play piano.
8: I love karoake but no friends will join me.
9: I can go shopping for hours, spend no money, and touch everything in the store. Drives hubby nuts.
10: I want to live in Key West or one of the other Keys.
11: Hubby and I have been married for 13 years and known each other for 14 years. (It was a short dating period.)

  1. Where do find your inspiration? Mostly outdoors.
  2. If you could recreate any memory what would it be? Cruising the Greek islands in a yacht.
  3. Do you have any animals? What are their names? I have two Bengal cats named Chomps and Kirby.
  4. Who is your favorite designer? I don't think Target counts so I'll say J. Crew and Banana Republic. Those are designers, right?
  5. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?  Why? Key West because island living is good for me and hubby.
  6. What do you do to cheer yourself up? Drink: beer or wine, or tea. Watch tv. Crochet. Go outside for a walk. Go shopping. 
  7. If you could change one event you've experienced what would it be?  Why? I would have moved to Oklahoma City two years prior. Hubby went to school here and I lived alone in Colorado for two miserable years. That was dumb considering we ended up moving here.
  8. Why do you like blogging? This is my therapy, my journal, my opportunity to learn and grow, and someday write a book.
  9. What is the happiest memory you have? Memories get fuzzy for me. I'll say our recent vacation to St. Lucia was my happiest. We enjoyed the pool together for the first time and that was awesome for me.
  10. What's your favorite hobby? Reading, biking, writing, photo taking, crocheting, playing piano, how can I pick one?
  11. What is your dream job? An analyst that creates reports and gives presentations. I love public speaking.
1: Why do you like blogging?
2: Where is your dream vacation?
3: Do you have any pets? What are their names?
4: What is your guilty pleasure?
5: Do you choose to pick up the remote or pick up a book first?
6: What is your favorite holiday?
7: Do you like Starbucks? What do you get there?
8: Do you prefer purses over shoes or vice versa or equal?
9: Are a cook or a baker?
10: What is your go-to accessory?
11: Do you prefer country living or the city?
