Liebster Award!

Oh my gosh, you guys, I was nominated for the Liebster Award twice within minutes of each other!  It means so much to be acknowledged, especially as a new blog trying to figure out if I am talking to myself or making connections with my readers, whose stories I have LOVED getting to know!

The first was by Darta, knowin in the blogging world as The Butterfly Girl.  She has such a neat and artistic blog giving us a glimpse into the world of behind the scenes movie making.  Each blog is interesting and gives a unique perspective on the movies I just saunter into the theater to watch – So.Much.Work goes into these films, and I’m thankful she lets us learn from her experiences.

The Liebster Award is an award given to bloggers by bloggers with aim to discover and spot new bloggers.

The Rules are pretty simple:

1 → Acknowledge the blog who nominated you;

2 → Answer the 11 questions that your nominator has asked you;

3 → Nominate 11 other bloggers (with followers under 200);

4 → Ask them 11 questions;

5 → Let them know that you have nominated them;

The Butterfly Girl asks:

1. What movie title would describe your blog the most and why?

The Never Ending Story, if by words only, because I always find excitement in life – a trip to the grocery store can inspire a craft which can inspire a fail which can inspire a good laugh.  It just never ends.

And it inspires run on sentences, lots and lots of run on sentences.

2. Would you rather travel to the past or the future?

The past.  Imagine if you could sit in on the writing of the Declaration of Independence, knowing how important that would be to millions of people for centuries to come!  Or go back to certain fails I’d like to redo – things said poorly, actions done hastily or without heart, classes I breezed through instead of taking seriously…  Yeah, the past it is.

But maybe the future, so I could figure out what NOT to do before I do it?  That would be the smart thing to do.

3. What skill would you like to master?

Cooking.  I’m awful at it.  Everything I cook ends up haggard or burnt and then I don’t even want to try anymore.  But if I could master it, and make some dinners that everyone loved instead of picked at, that would be awesome.

4. If you would have a chance to spend 5 hours tomorrow with ANYONE in the world (alive) who would it be and what would you be doing in these 5 hours? 

I’d love to be on set of “The Office” American version and watch these scenes come together – comical genius.  Michael Scott, Dwight, Jan and Jim.  Ahh, my heart.

5. What is your dream job?

Grant Coordinator for a needed program in my community, preferably one that pays a ton of course, but one that really meets the needs of the community and has a positive impact.
6. What is your favourite quote?


7. What was your last travel destination? describe it in a few words.

Wisconsin Dells Mt.Olympus Water Park can be best described as many acres of water filled delight – slides, waves, pools, food and fun.

8. In 5 bullet points bullet your day.

*Reluctantly crawls out of bed

*Prepares kids for school

*Gets self to work

*Picks kids up from school after work

*Dine and study til the stars shine

9. 3 best things you did / that happened to you in 2017… go!

I started grad school, I watched three long time relationships finally turn into engagements, and celebrating my Dad’s one year cancer free anniversary!

10. Any social media?

Nope.  Pretty old school.

11. Name 3 things that are in your “2018 Bucket list”! 

Expand on my current career as I’m LOVING it, get the family to travel out of state, and be successful in school.

      1. I tuned into tv one day and Brian Baumgartner (Kevin’s character) was being interviewed, and he made some sort of comment to the effect of, he wished he hadn’t used that voice in The Office audition because now everyone thinks that is what he’s like in real life. I had to laugh out loud, because I couldn’t believe that “Kevin” could speak normally during the interview – I guess he was right! lol

  1. Thank you so much! Lovely answers, and I wish you the best in Grad school, sounds like that is a big challenge on top of everything else you have going on. Get it girl!

    1. School is very time consuming, but I am loving it! It’s a lot easier when it’s something I’m just naturally passionate about. If I had to write 20+ pages regularly on something that bored me, it would be excruciating, but I actually end up needing to shorten the assignments – there’s just so much to learn and share with the world!
