Liebster is a german word, it means sweetheart, darling, beloved. Awwww… And I must be beloved, because I just got this award again. The Insomniac’s Dream nominated me for the Liebster. Have you visited her blog? She is REAL. She is a writer who also happens to blog. Her writing is so amazing that you can picture yourself in whatever she is describing! Please visit her blog when you get the chance.
What is the Liebster Award? Here are the Rules!:
This award is given to new or up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. The award is then passed along to other bloggers in the same category to help spread the word and support one another. I actually have way more than 200 followers, but that’s ok! This is my 4th time receiving this award.
1. Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, then create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to.
3. Choose 11 new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link them in your post.
4. Go back to their page and tell them about the award.
5. No tag backs.
Here’s my problem with these rules-I really don’t know anyone who has less than 200 followers that I haven’t already awarded this to. I tagged all of the ones I follow in my last award acceptance post, which was quite recently. I haven’t really started following any new blogs since then. I don’t want to seem ungrateful-so I’ll do the part that I can!
11 Random Facts
The first time I received the Liebster Award, I thought it said Lobster. Appropriate to fact #3.
I found out I have had a WordPress account for three years. I did not know this.
I am from Maine but live in Iowa.
I started this blog as an anonymous person, now I really don’t care who knows it’s me.
I starting reading Heinlein in 5th grade.
My son was almost named Jareth, yes from Labrynth. I got cold feet at the last minute because I didn’t want people to call him Jerry.
I did not know my daughter’s name until my husband told me what is was (he said it was his turn to choose the name).

I have never actually been to band camp.
I saw Star Trek: Insurrection on opening night. The other people in the theater included the Iowa State University Marching Band, we know this because they yelled it when they walked in. I was also one of the only females in the theater.
11 Questions for Me
1. Are you a cat or a dog person?
Meow. Cat! My dog is sweet, but I will always be a cat person.
2. What is your drink of choice?
Non alcoholic-Diet Sunkist Lemonade and Coca-cola. Alcoholic-Sutter Home White Zinfandel or if I’m feeling really rich, Relax Riesling!
3. What is your favorite Holiday?
Halloween. It’s so much fun to dress up. I admit it’s not as fun now that I’m an adult married to a Halloween hater. At least I can live vicariously through my children.

Dirt ass poor. I have been married for thirteen years but I am still a romantic at heart.

Hmmmmm… this is a toughie. I would say chewing my lip?

My weekend glass of wine.

A writer who blogs. My story is yet to be written, though.
