The Liebster Award Wednesday. (Okay that isn't a day)

I am super honored  that Kirsten from Kirsten Loves Lyla nominated me for a Liebster.  I have always said that I blog for me but part of blogging for yourself is making connections with others out there in blogland.   After Goggling Liebster Award I discovered that this is sort of a getting to know you award where you answer 11 questions and then nominate other small, start up, up and coming  promising bloggers with mad skills to spred the love and introduce yourself to new blog friends.  

So here the official Liebster Rules:

1. Thank and link back to the person who nominates you.
2. Answer the questions given by the person who nominates you.
3. Nominate 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers.
4. Create 11 new questions for the nominees to answer.
5. Let the nominees know they’ve been nominated!

Kirsten had some great questions and here they are with my answers:

  1. You only get to eat one food for the rest of your life. What is it?  Chicken!  I love Chicken. Baked chicken, roasted chicken, grilled chicken, fried chicken, chicken salad, chicken fingers.  I know, I know, I am having a Forest Gump moment here with chicken. 
  2. What is your focus goal for your blog this year? Quality content so I can hopefully touch lives. 
  3. What is one thing you love about yourself?  My hair.  I know it is totally superficial but I really love being a ginger.   
  4. Your proudest moment?  I completed a half marathon in 2010 for Team in Training to raise money for Cancer Research specifically for Leukemia and Lymphoma.   My father passed away at 27 from Lymphoma.  I am not a runner and when you train you have to do it in all kinds of weather.  I remember running in a cold rain and telling myself "It's for daddy".   I knew when I crossed that finish line 13.5 miles later, I can do anything if I really want to and nobody can stop me!
  5. Favorite movie?  Field of Dreams.  I love baseball and I lost my dad when I was 5 so I can completely relate to feeling like there are unfinished things to say or do with your dad.  I think I cried the first time I saw that movie.  
  6. What are two things you hope to improve about your blog?  I would like to be able to write more blogs on craft projects and DIY and I would like to use my blog to promote causes that are important.  
  7. What is the one thing you hate the most?  Green peppers.  I can't stand the green ones, only the green ones.  
  8. What is your dream vacation?  It is a tie between Cooperstown, New York to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame and Wyoming, where my husband is from, so he can show me where he grew up. 
  9. What is one thing you can’t live without?  Coffee
  10. Where do you like to go with your friends?  Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, concerts, and a Chuy's which is a Tex-Mex place with the best margaritas outside of Ft Worth and Austin. 
  11. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?  I would love to have a lake house with my husband and a little B&B where I make gourmet grilled cheese and he makes home made salsa and smoked meats.  
Alright, here is the fun part!  I get to nominate 11 people for Liebsters of their own and ask them questions.  
I tried to find bloggers who had under 200 followers but some of you I just couldn't tell so I apologize to any of you if you have a ton of followers that I couldn't see!  I went by Bloglovin and counts on your site if I could find them.   I enjoy your blog either way! :)
