I've Been Given a Liebster Award!

Thank you so much to my friend Linda Atwell over at http://outoneear.com (another one of my favourite blogs) for giving me a Liebster Award! I'm honoured, Linda.

It's my understanding that "liebster" is German for "favourite". The Liebster Award is awarded by bloggers to other up-and-coming bloggers whose blogs have less than 200 followers.

The official rules for the Liebster Awards are as follows:

  1. You must thank the person who gave you this award

  2. You must display the Liebster heart on your blog

  3. You should nominate 3 to 5 up-and-coming blogs with less than 200 subscribers

  4. Each person must post 11 random things about themselves

  5. Answer the questions given to you by the blogger who nominated you

  6. Create 11 questions for those you nominate to answer

  7. Notify your nominees and provide a link back to your post.

  8. You’re not supposed to do “ping-backs”

So...here we go.

Here are 11 random things that you might not know about me:

  1. I was 12.5 lbs when I was born (biggest baby ever to be born in my hospital at the time, although I'm not sure I still hold that record)

  2. I've seen "Star Wars" so many times that I could probably recite it if I had to

  3. I read very, very quickly

  4. Jon Stewart is my celebrity crush

  5. Processed cheese slices make me ill

  6. I've been to the Arctic Circle

  7. I can fall asleep just about anywhere

  8. I don't own a cell phone

  9. I hate, hate, hate doing dishes.

  10. I used to be able to walk around on the tips of my toes without the special ballet shoes (not for many years, though)

  11. I've seen every episode of "Seinfeld"

Here are Linda's 11 questions for me:

  1. What is your favorite travel destination and why? Ecuador. I didn't think I was going to like it all when we visited my sister and her husband there, but it's such a beautiful country...I'd go back in a heartbeat.

  2. Do you own any pets? If so, what kinds? I own 2 cats - Faira is eleven years old, and Mindee is 6 years old.

  3. Rain, sunshine, snow, or cloudy? Sunshine, definitely...although there's something nice about snow right at Christmas (if only it would go away right after!)

  4. The mountains or the beach? If I couldn't be in a place where there's fairly easy access to both (like the West Coast), I'd choose the beach.

  5. How do you motivate yourself to exercise? I keep telling myself that it will help keep my weight down...lol.

  6. Did you make a New Year’s resolution? Share if you like. I don't make resolutions, but I do think about directions in which I'd like to go for the year. I'm trying to focus on improving my health this year.

  7. Who is your bestest (yes, bestest is a word in my world) Valentine? My niece.

  8. What was your favorite all-time Valentine gift? Roses and a homemade dinner.

  9. How far in advance do you plan a vacation? Two or three months

  10. What is your dream car? Don't really have one...but I did get to drive a BMW once, and it was pretty nice.

  11. If you could move to any other city in the world, where would it be? It's a toss-up between London and New York. I love them both.

My questions for the bloggers that I chose:
