Liebster Award - I was nominated!!!

Thursday, March 7, 2013

Hello everyone! I am pleased to announce that I was nominated for the Liebster Award! I was nominated by fellow Marine wife Kym at Red, White & Marine Wife. Thanks so much Kym!!! Whenever I find a blog of another military spouse it makes me SO happy :)
A Liebster is an award for up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.
Bloggers nominate other bloggers! Talk about support!
Liebster, in German means various wonderful things, including: sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

Here you can read more about the Liebster award...This is the most specific/thorough description I can find of it! It is basically just an "award" bloggers give other bloggers..Really more of a recognition that makes you feel loved by the blogging community :)
The rules for the award are as follows:
~Answer the 11 questions asked
~Leave a link back to the blogger that nominated you
~Choose 11 bloggers {more or less} with less than 200 followers to nominate, and let them know they've been picked
~Write 11 new questions for them to answer
Now you can tell I am very excited about this, and feel so lucky to be "surrounded" by a wonderful blogging community.
Here are my questions from Kym and my answers:
1. How long have you been blogging?
I started blogging in June of 2012.. Not even a year ago!
2. If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
Hands down, it would be Texas. I'd be happy with anywhere in Texas. {This is obviously our home, if you haven't noticed, and we would give anything to be back, buy land, build a house, and grow roots. We cannot wait for that day!}
3. What's your favorite summertime activity?
I absolutely love to just relax at the beach in the summer. So beach-going would be my favorite. With a glass of raspberry lemonade and my favorite book by my side. Anything outdoors that involves sunshine and the ocean is fine by me :) {Which is perfect because we live in SoCal now!!}
4. What is your dream job?
My dream is to teach elementary or middle school at a DoDEA school {Department of Defense Education Activity} This is a pretty big thing, though, for you have to have x number of years of experience, have a state certification and preferably to have passed the PRAXIS exam, and, well, it's really competitive. It's really hard to get in to DoDEA. This is the best of the best --- and they teach the children of today's military. {Being born into and married into the military this is kind of a no-brainer for me!} All of their schools are on the east coast or overseas though, so that is something to consider...{Maybe if I get a position one day at one of their Europe school locations, we can start traveling and moving for my job. What a change of pace! A girl can dream..}
5. What is your favorite season?
I live for the sweet summertime!
6. What is your biggest pet peeve?
I just don't appreciate swearing/obscene language. It's completely unnecessary and I cringe every time I hear it. There is never a reason, never!
7. What is your favorite movie?
The Princess Bride, hands down.
8. How did you and your significant other meet?
We met at Daisy Duke's, a bar/club at Northgate in College Station, TX. {A strand of bars/clubs/resturaunts across the street from Texas A&M..Where we went to school}. He picked me out of the crowd, but his buddy actually danced with me first, so he danced with my friend instead. Later that night he found me again and we danced until the club closed at 2am! The rest, is history!
9. Who do prefer to spend time with, family or friends?
10. What is your favorite weekend activity?
I love to sleep in on the weekends with my husband. Lazy, I know!
11. If you could have one wish, what would it be?
I would wish to recieve a grant for the summer so I'll be able to take a jampacked-full summer of 18 hours throughout 2- 8wk terms. That is the only way I will be able to graduate May 2014..But I guess it's okay if I graduate that December or in 2015... I just want to be done and get my big girl teaching position already!! {Otherwise I can only take one, maybe two classes this summer and will have to graduate later than I wanted..} Fun wish, right?!
After some thought I have decided to only nominate other military spouses!
I have recently found most of these and am looking forward to getting to know some of these ladies better through the blogosphere.

My questions for my nominees are:
1. Why/when did you start blogging?
