Heather 101 & Liebster Blog Award

Thank you to Sarah over at Nurse Loves Farmer for nominating me for the Liebster Blog award! As I try to grow my blog and number of readers, this is a nice little pat on the back, so Thanks Sarah! If you haven’t checked out her blog, you really should. She has the cutest little boy and a baby on the way! I have never met Sarah but she seems like she is so sweet and nice! I’m jealous of her farm life as well!

For those of you who don’t know,  the Liebster Award is given to bloggers, by bloggers. It is a way to acknowledge each other and say, “You are doing a great job.” It is for blogs with 200 or less followers, so it is also a great way to spread the word about smaller blogs and get them more readers and followers!

When you receive the award you post eleven random facts about yourself, and answer eleven questions from the person who nominated you. So here are my eleven random facts:


  • I’m pretty much addicted to my iPhone. I don’t know what to do with myself if I forget it at home.
  • I’m the shortest in my family at 5’8″
  • I really hope to make it to BlogHer’13! I want to meet all my bloggy friends and make them friends in real life!
  • I’m a designer, yet I’m not artistic at all. I can barely draw a stick figure!
  • I live with a mini zoo… 3 cats and a dog!
  • I played softball for 11 years, field hockey for 4 and sailing for 1 during elementary, middle and high school.
  • I moved away from the beautiful cape cod seaside to a land locked city in texas… most people don’t understand why I would every do that!
  • I went to college close to the border of Canada, where it was -40 degrees in the winter!
  • I graduated college in 3 1/2 years rather than 4 and miss it.
  • I got pregnant within 3 weeks of deciding to try to have a baby.
  • I’m cheap! I’m always looking for a good deal.
  • My parents tricked me into thinking that sheep had 2 different length legs (because of hills) when we went to England during middle school. EH HEM! What parents do that?!

Then the person who nominates you, gives you 10 questions to answer. Here is what Sarah asked me:

  1. What is your favorite season and why?
    I love Winter because I am always wishing for SNOW!
  2. What is your dream vacation?
    There are lots of places I really want to visit including Italy, Paris and Australia but right now my dream would be to go through the Greek Isles!
  3. If you could do over something in your life, would you and what is it?
    There are little things I would change but I wouldn’t want to outcome to be any different so I better not change anything!
  4. Describe your dream home.
    I love my home now, but my dream home would have a wrap around porch on the front with a big yard. Lots of trees and beautiful gardens. Inside the house would all be professionally decorated, bright and fresh with lots of extra space for the whole family to live. 
  5. What are your favorite iPhone app(s)?
    I have too many iPhone apps. For Lennox – Our favorites are Disney Junior, Good Night with Star, Cute Cards and Zoo Train. For me, I love my instagram, Tiles, Cuptakes, Cuptakes Frames, Pop Booth, Facebook, Pinterest.. I guess most of the norms!
  6. Are you going to have anymore little ones?
    We honestly are unsure at this point. Right now we aren’t ready for another and I can’t imagine taking care of a newborn, taking care of Lennox and working full-time! I think we will think more serious about this as Lennox gets to the age where she is going to public school. 
  7. What is your biggest pet peeve?
    Procrastination… I do it myself too, but it just drives me nutty!
  8. What is one thing on your bucket list?
    Go to Venice. My grandfather always said it was the best place in the world to go — so I have to go!
  9. You have one day all to yourself. No obligations, no kids, no husband, nothing. What do you do?
    I don’t even know! I think I would sleep in, go shopping, go to the spa, do NO cleaning, NO work, NO diapers, NO bills!
  10. Do you enter blog giveaways? Have you ever won anything?
    I do enter blog giveaways and I have won a few, mostly gift certificates to Etsy stores or websites! I have won a few that I never received too…that’s always a bummer 🙁 I would like to have more on my blog for everyone else to enter too! 

When you get this award, you then pass the award on to other blogs and give them 10 questions to answer!

The blogs I love and nominate are:

And I ask you these questions:

  1. Why did you start blogging?
  2. What did you want to be when you were a kid?
  3. What do you think your kid(s) will be when they grow up {if you have a kid!}
  4. Are you planning on going to BlogHer? Have you gone before? What is your goal for going?
  5. What is your favorite TV show?
  6. What is one food you could never live without?
  7. Are you named after anyone?
  8. If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be?
  9. What is the best vacation you ever took?
  10. What is one thing you would love to do with your blog?

So that’s how it works. If you don’t want to join in.. no worries! no pressure! Just have fun with it. If you do want to participate, then get to it and answer some questions, random facts and nominate! 🙂
