Liebster Blog Award


Today I received the Liebster Blog award from Café Vita. This award is given to new bloggers. Liebster is German for dearest, loveliest or favorite. To pass it along I have found other up and coming bloggers to share the award with. 


There are some rules to accepting this award:
1. Each awarded blogger will post 11 random facts about themselves
2. 11 questions provided by the sender have to be answered
3. 11 new bloggers have to be chosen to which the award will be passed on. Go to their pages, tell them about the award and pass on the link to your post! So it is kind of a blogger chain mail. This is a nice way to help promote new blogs and to get to know the owners.

So here it goes: 11 random facts about me:
1. I am ordained
2. I once held the record for the most pushups in my Army Reserves Unit
3. I don’t like raw tomatoes 
4. I once wanted to be a doctor when I grew up
5. I am a control freak
6. I have 2 busy boys
7. I have never been to Hawaii – but plan to in 2013 or 2014!
8. I often bite more than I can chew
9. I don’t enjoy crafts
10. I crave melted nacho cheese 
11. I love hard rock music!

So now is the time to pass this award along!
I looked through Facebook and Pinterest pages that I am associated with and identified a few blogs I would love to help promote for their fabulous, creative, or yummy work.  Here they are:
1. When Angels Cook - http://whenangelscook.com/

  1. Congratulations on your Liebster. I love learning about bloggers. Now I know that we both love hard rock, are control freaks and have 2 busy boys. And you know when I bite off more than I can chew? When I try a craft project, LOL!
