List #16a - Liebster Award (or if you don't know what that is, like I didn't, 11 questions to get to know a blogger)


 I'm blogging more, and I'm reading more blogs.  I stumbled upon Sarah's blog post about the Liebster award.  As she states, "(t)he Liebster award is passed around from blog to blog who have less than 200 followers!"  I'll answer eleven questions that Sarah has asked, then I will nominate eleven (why 11? I don't know) other blogs with around or just less than 200 followers on Facebook and/or Bloglovin'. (Yes, I stole more of Sarah's explanation...I'm new at this and not sure what I'm doing)  From Sarah: "The nominees will then have the opportunity to answer my questions and continue the nominations! It's a great way to get to know one another in the blogging community and for readers to get to know more about the person they follow!"

1. What is your favorite memory from 2014?  
 I get married in 2014, not too many days from now, so I'll go ahead and predict that will be a great day.

 2. What is the best meal you've ever had? 
In 2013, I surprised my mom by coming home to Texas (with the help of family).  We gathered aunts, uncle, cousins, and more to surprise her at Chuy's, a favorite Tex-Mex restaurant.  I had chips & creamy jalapeƱo dip, Texas martinis, and more yummy goodness surrounded by family that love me.

3. If you could travel anywhere for one day, where would it be?
 Does this include time travel?  Because I'd totally go visit my younger self for a day and have a long conversation.

4. What is your favorite color?  
Hot Pink

5. What is one item on your Christmas wish list?
Shoes.  Black flats.  Boring.  I know, but I need a new pair.
6. What was your favorite childhood TV show?
 Welcome Back Kotter - loved those Sweathogs!

7. Would you rather be hot or cold? Why?
 Hot.  I like the feeling of warmth and sweating over freezing and shivering.

8. Backstreet Boys or N'Sync?

9. Do you wear socks to bed?

10. How often do you blog throughout the week?
I've been blogging more; I used to be so infrequent; now two or three times a week

11. What is your favorite movie?
Tough to pick just one, but I'll say Love Actually.

My questions:
1. What is your favorite holiday?
2. If you could spend a week by yourself (no travel companion, just you) anywhere in the world, where would it be?
3. You can only have one of the following totally materialistic items; which one would it be?  The house of your dreams, the car of your dreams, the wardrobe of your dreams?
4. Do you blog most often during the day or at night?
5. Coffee or Tea?
6. You are forced to give up two of the following; which do you keep?  Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram?
7. Bath or Shower?
8. What's your favorite (something visual that involves admiring other people's talents) concert, or musical, or play, or painting?
9. Cats or Dogs?
10.  You kill an hour in front of your television.  You watch reality tv, a drama, a documentary, a comedy?
11. Do you dance, sing, or play a musical instrument?

Now, I'm supposed to nominate eleven bloggers with approximately 200 followers (or less) on facebook and/or bloglovin' to participate and answer my questions above.  I'm just starting to actively follow blogs, so this may be tough.  I'm not sure how I'm even supposed to go about tagging them.  I'll figure it out.  I nominate:

Daisy at
Kristen at
