Serious Sunday: Liebster #4 & 5

As I briefly researched this major 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.
I would like to send a big shout out to Erin at Read Eat Create and Chrissy at Prayers and Pearls for nominating me! Thank you both so very much!
1) I can only drink coffee if chocolate is involved.
2) I had lost 20 pounds but recently (and slowly) 10 pounds crept back on me.
3) I love the color purple and all other colors but purple is the best.
4) I love the ocean and miss it like crazy.
5) I don't like sand in between my toes or walking on hot sand burning my poor feet up.
6) I will not wear flip flops at the airport because I don't want my bare feet touching the nasty floor.
7) I am from Oregon originally but am slowly moving accross the United States until I hit Key West.
8) I would be ok with living over seas for a few years.
9) I love animals but cats are easier to care for, especially when I go on trips.
10) I love to go shopping and love to touch most everything in the store.
11) I love free, even if I don't need it or want it but I do want it when its free. Perhaps this is a problem?
1) If you could eat dinner with one person, dead or alive, who would it be? Jimmy Buffet
2) What’s the most interesting thing on your bucket list? I plan on seeing every country in the Carribbean and I bet its going to take a long time.
3) The mountains or the beach? BEACH!
4) What would your last meal be? Death by chocolate.
5) What’s your favorite TV show? Biggest Loser, my real favorite was Extreme Makeover Home Edition but stupid ABC had to cancel that show. (Not wise ABC)
6) What did you want to be when you were little? A DJ at a radio station, which doesn't really exist any more. Now they're all talk show hosts and nobody spins records or cd's. The computer plays everything.
7) What’s your ideal outfit? Anything cozy, soft and warm.
8) What do you do when you are mad? Stew until I explode, which is never pretty.
9) What’s your favorite board on Pinterest? I go back and forth between food and diy.
10) How long have you been blogging? The short answer is since August was when I got serious but I really started the blog in 2009 for therapy purposes. At the time, my husband had to go to grad school out of state and I was going crazy missing him.
11) Did you have a kaboodle when you were little? I don't think I did. I had many many purses. Then I gave them all away and got a new collection started.
Prayers and Pearls

2. What is your favorite Christmas song? Silver Bells
3.  If you could tell your younger self something, what would it be? Try to relax. That's never easy for a first born to do. Always striving for perfection but trying is good.

5. Boots or flats? Flats, heals are difficult for me.
6. Do you already have some New Years Resolutions for 2013? I gave up on that many years ago.

  1. I love reading about me posts, shows how much we bloggers actually have in common.
    I share a lot of the things on your list. No sand between my toes, I avoid bare foot contact on airport or any other floor that's not my home & Mochas are my favorite coffee. I just started following your blog!
