What is a Liebster Award, you ask?
11. When I was five or six and people used to ask me where I got all my freckles, my answer back was always, “The sun kissed me!” (my husband might not even know that one)
If I were an instrument what would I be?A banjo. Because it has roots in hillbillyishness (that’s a word, right?) and it’s kind of awkward and doesn’t fit in many places, but likes to have a good time.
Coke or PepsiCoke. Unless we’re talking Cherry, then I go with Cherry Pepsi. I did the Pepsi Challenge at the Taste of Chicago a few years back and I chose Coke. I always thought I preferred Coke, but the taste test confirmed it.
What was the last song you listened to.
Night Fever by The Bee Gees. During the song, I was thinking how I wish I could have been quick and witty enough to Facebook something like, “I’ve been Jive Talkin’ about Robin Gibb all day in his honor”, on the day he died. It’s probably a good thing I missed my opportunity because it’s only witty in my own head and I’m sure some of my “friends” would have defriended me over it.
What purpose does blogging fulfill for you?Well for the first five years it fulfilled our desire to share about our adoptions with our family and friends. It was a way to update everyone at once and was great to share our experiences in almost real time. The past few months my blog has been more about practicing writing and sharing it with others in hopes that they get some kind of entertainment out it.
What did you want to be when you were 5? 10? 15? Now?Age 5 – Peter Pan. He could fly, he could fly, he could flyyyyyyy.Age 10 – A dentist. I have no idea why. Maybe because my uncle was one and I always thought it was cool to have my uncle as our dentist.Age 15 – I may have still been working the dentist thing. I remember filling out one of those career path questionnaires and purposely answering all the questions to lean toward my future as a dentist.Age Now – A mom and a writer. I’m doing both…most days.
What is your favorite snack food?Chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie. I have one almost every day.
What is one tradition you had when you were growing up that you’d like to continue with your family?We always visited extended family on major holidays and I still like to do that, whether locally with my sister, or out of state with other relatives.
If you were a pirate looking for buried treasure what would that treasure be?Honestly, I’d probably be too cynical on the whole thing and think there was no treasure, so I wouldn’t bother. I’d be one of the pirates who don’t do anything.
What is your favorite quote and why?Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you. (Hebrews 13:5)
When is your favorite time of day?My morning quiet time, of course…when I get it. If I don’t, then right before I go to sleep when I’m laying in bed reading a book.
Do you prefer to use Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Instagram?
Facebook is #1 for me for socializing. Pinterest is awesome for bookmarking and finding new recipes. Twitter is on my blogging bucket list. Instagram…that has something to do with photos, right? I’m not very good with the camera, so that one’s not really for me.
