I'd Like to Thank the Acadamy

My dear Stephanie - at Thirsty Soul, has nominated me for a Liebster Award.  I was pretty excited...until I found out there was no cash prize!


Aah, I was excited just the same!  I like these fun little award thingies.  I like how you get to know bloggers better and you discover new bloggers too! This one is pretty simple and fun so I'm going to fashion my posts the same as Stephanie did, by breaking it into two posts.

Here are the rules:

First up - 11 random facts about me!  Hmm...well just over a year ago I posted 29 little known things about myself...so now I have to think of 11 different ones.....hmm...okay, here goes:
1. Have I mentioned how much I like coffee?  I could drink it all day long - except I get the shakes and my head goes a bit wonky....I try to stop after two...or three. lol!!  But I really like it - the smell, the taste, the pretty mugs I drink it out of.  I take mine with just milk or cream.  No sugar, I'm sweet enough! ;)
2.  After ten months of living in the country - it is all I could have hoped for...and more!  But one thing I've noticed...it's really dark out here at night....really dark!
3.  I miss spending time doing my art but have greatly enjoyed getting into photography!  I never really thought I'd like it (photography) but I guess I don't mind it... ;) lol!
4. I'm just a tad sarcastic!
5. I am more of a geek then I let on...or at least I think I don't let on too much! ;)  I love the computer and all things techy...I just don't understand a lot of it! haha! 
6.  Though we have left the size of our family up to God, both my husband and I have always dreamed of having three kids - we feel extremely blessed! ♥
7.  I always wanted to be an illustrator - even went to college for one year to pursue that.  I always got hung up on the fact that "I couldn't write".  So I have been waiting for a writer so I could illustrate their words.  This blog has given me confidence and oodles of practice...maybe my 'writer' has arrived?
8. I greatly enjoy spending time with my husband, and thankfully, he with me!  It's great - but can also be problematic - we tend to not get much done because we sit and talk the time away.  Neither of us is very disciplined!  We both pray and dream of him being able to work from home...we just have no idea how! 
9. I have no problem busying myself - the problem lays in putting aside what I want to do for doing what needs to be done...like folding laundry!  I have a lot of hobbies and greatly enjoying spending my time on anything creative!  Okay...not anything...I don't knit or crochet, and really have no desire to do either at this point in time.  Learning to play the banjo would be pretty cool....just not sure I want to put the time in to practice! :/
10.  I love to listen to music...LOUD!
11.  When it comes to home décor, I'm all over the place!  I guess I have a 'style'- but at any moment I could change everything.  I honestly would!! (if money was no issue! ;) lol!)  I love antiques, French country, clean lines, subtle colours, coziness, bold fabrics, organic forms, dramatic colours, floral, just the right amount of clutter, Mod, rustic, organized, elegant, formal, causal......and on and on.  I have the worst time picking and sticking with a style....but I do think deep down, that "charming country" is my feel good place - we just need to open and B&B so I can indulge all those other styles!
Okay, well I'll leave you all with this for the weekend.  I'll be back on Monday...(or maybe Sunday night...we'll see) to answer the 11 questions that Stephanie gave me and to list my nominations - though I know there won't be eleven - but I'll have a few.
Have a blessed and joyous weekend!!
 Read part two here.


  1. What fun! I'm still working on my stuff for the award from Steph...I haven't taken time to write out 11 random facts but almost have my 11 answers completed. It would be nice if it included a money prize, wouldn't it?

    1. Come on Kendra...I'm still waiting for your post....and yes - money would sure sweeten the deal! ;) lol!!

  2. Fun. I turned my award down :( I didn't really feel up to it. Your floors look beautiful (previous blog). I can't wait to see them. Have a great weekend!

    1. Shucks! I would have like to read your responses - but I understand! :)

  3. Yes, sorry about the whole no cash prize thing ;)

    Love all your pretty coffee mugs...can't wait to see that book you write and illustrate someday! ...I understand what you mean about just talking with hubby and then not getting much done! Love how you described all your decorating styles. It IS hard to just pick one, isn't it? Looking forward to your questions - thanks for participating!

    1. This was a lot of fun Steph - thanks for nominating me. I`ll forgive you on the whole no cash prize - but only if we go for coffee one day soon! ;) :D

  4. Fun award. You are beautiful. :)

  5. You know... this is really scary.

    You and I are so much alike. Why I didn't catch this before - but did you say B&B? me too..


    I really hope we get to meet one day.


Leave me a comment! I love hearing from you! ♥
