Time to accept awards I’ve been nominated for. It’s like the Golden Globe awards but more exciting! I have 2 to accept so I might do this in parts
First up is the Liebster Blog Award
A while ago – November 27 2012 – I was nominated for the Liebster Blog Award by Valerie over at alantamotherofthree. Thank you! I appreciate it very much even though I’m accepting it 2 months later (you can blame my memory and laziness)
This award is an award for bloggers by bloggers. It’s a way of acknowledging each other and is for blogs with 200 or less followers (I have a lot less than 200)
When you receive the award, you post 11 random facts about yourself and answer 11 questions from the person who nominated you. You pass the award onto 11 other blogs, tell them you nominated them, and ask them 11 questions. You are not allowed to nominate the blog who nominated you

Questions and answers:
Q. Would you rather live where they have mild winters and very hot summers, or have freezing winters and mild summers?
A. It depends. If by hot we’re talking humidity, than freezing winters and mild summers. If we’re just talking straight up heat, than mild winters and very hot summers. I don’t mind heat but I can’t stand humidity
Q. If you had to choose a different decade to live in for one month from 1900-1990, which would you choose? Why?
A. I have a couple. I would say 1969 so I could buy a Pontiac GTO Judge, or 1980 so I can buy Apple stock. I’d probably go for 1980
Q. Do you have children? How many?
A. None that I’m aware of
Q. Where you live are there more cars than bikes? Do you own a bike?
A. Motorcycles or bicycles? Either way, cars outnumber them. I have 2 mountain bikes and had a motorcycle
Q. What is one thing you are really proud of that you’ve learned how to do as an adult? (Mine is juggling!!)
A. Mmmm…manage my finances and having patience (for some things)? I say both because they both came in handy. I can’t juggle
Q. What is your favorite fiction book?
A. Read a lot of good books, but I’d say The Kite Runner is my favourite
Q. If you found $1000 cash on a ride at an amusement park, what would you do?
A. Return it to its rightful owner. Ya right! I’d make like a thief and run. Chances of finding the owner are slim and the person at the “lost and found” would probably steal it. Unless I saw whose pocket it fell out of..then I’d probably return it
Q. What is your favorite kind of music to listen to?
A. I listen to pretty much anything, except country music. Dance/Euro is probably my favourite
Q. What do you think is the best way to spend a Saturday night?
A. Depends how I feel. Maybe stay at home or go out dinner and movie. I’m done with the club scene
Q. Would you rather spend a week in the mountains or on a beach? Why?
A. Mountains for sure! Beach you basically just lay there doing nothing. Mountains are majestic , beautiful and I find them relaxing
Q. Do you do Pinterest? Want to share your link?
A. Nope. To tell you the truth, I never really heard of it before. I have Facebook and hardly use it. I’m anti-social
