Nominated For The Liebster Award!

It was just a typical Monday (which means it sucked) yesterday when I checked my Twitter account. Low and behold I received a message from Erin who is the awesome blogger of Unbound Roots. She nominated me for the Liebster Award and I am over the moon! Please go check out her blog! Thank you Erin for the nomination!

As part of the nomination you must answer her questions and that I will do! Enjoy!

What inspired you to start blogging? I needed an outlet. I was diagnosed with atypical ductal hyperplasia and couldn’t take antidepressants. Rather than jumping off a bridge, I decided to write like no ones watching. It’s the most cathartic thing on Earth for me.

If you could give a new blogger one tip, what would it be? Don’t give up! Be in it to win it. If you have only 4 readers for the first 4 months, keep going! You gotta love this and be willing to work at it. If your heart isn’t in it, it comes out in your writing.

When is your favorite time to write and why? When I am alone and it’s quiet. It’s not out of the question that I find myself writing on the toilet. That is the only place my children are least likely to barge in on me yet it has happened before. I’m currently sitting next to my 8-year-old while he shows me Hot Wheels on E-bay, every 30 seconds.

Do you have any other hobbies besides writing? I used to; I use to sew like a mo-fo. Why I quit is beyond me. Honestly, I really don’t have any other hobbies than blogging.

What is your favorite book of all time? 50 Shades of Grey. Go ahead, judge me. I’ve read all 3, 3 times. Actually I’ve listened to each of them 3 times, but that counts right? I once wrote E.L. James about listening to her books and she wrote me back!

Would you rather go dancing in the cities, take a hike, or read a book at home? Dancing in the city if all the stars are aligned. Meaning, I am staying in the city so there isn’t a commute home, I’ve had enough sleep, the music isn’t too loud so I can hear my friends talk and I’m not hungry. God I sound old. Perhaps I should rethink this and go with the book???

Where would you go on your ultimate dream vacation? This is going to sound lame but probably a 2 week European cruise. My cabin would have to be in one of those rooms where it’s 2 floors and basically like an apartment. If you told me a 2 week European cruise in a tiny little cabin with no window or deck, I would lose it.

If you could pick a color to represent your blog, what color would it be and why? Pink! I’m completely and utterly 100% a pink girl. I once told my husband I would want to have more sex if our bedroom was pink. Guess what color my bedroom is? Pink.

What is your favorite food? Wine. I kid….I kid. My favorite food, now that a Japanese restaurant has closed is filet mignon. For extra credit, filet mignon from Ruth Chris steakhouse. OMG, I can taste it in my mouth now. My steak has to be mooing though. To order it cooked more than medium rare is a travesty.

Which post has been your most popular post since you started blogging (feel free to leave the link)? Surprisingly, it was me whining about blogging. Or at least going through all the things you have to do to get your blog out there in front of people. My second one? It was ridiculous and called  WTF*** is this? Thinx!

The rule states you can nominate 5-10 Bloggers. Here are my nominees in no particular order as I think the world of all of them! Please go and read their amazing blogs!

  1. Awwww. Thanks for the nomination!! I typically don’t do awards anymore, but I might have to accept just to answer your questions! Might be a while though; the next couple of weeks are pretty busy for me. 🙂

  2. You are just the best! I knew I would love reading your answers. LOL! See?!? You do deserve the award. I love that you love the 50 Shades of Gray series (no judgement here from someone else who enjoyed them). 🙂 And, I love that you painted your bedroom pink. Again, LOL! Last, I think our sons would get along swimmingly. You have no idea how many times I’ve looked at Hot Wheel and Matchbox cars on ebay with my son (who also happens to be 8). Thanks so much for participating. 🙂 I’m going over to check out the links you shared. Have a wonderful day!

    1. You are so sweet and I think you are right! Aren’t sons wonderful? I whine about them but love them so much. Again, thank you sooo much for the nomination! It really made my week!

  3. Erin nominated me too! Great company, eh? 😉 I am only judging you slightly for the 50 Shades of Grey, because I did read them, too, and enjoyed them. However, you would never want to have steak with my husband, who eats it basically charred. Also, I thought your porn star name was your first pet and the street you grew up on? Either way, my first name is Precious, and I mean, does it get better? (Yes, if yours is 54 followed by Cox– that’s amazing!)

    1. Congrats on the nomination! You deserve it! I was told it was your first pet and your moms maiden name but Lord knows you can use the address. Mine would be boring though: 54 Jefferson.

  4. Apparently, you’re supposed to purchase 50 Shades of Grey…
    Sitting in Barnes and Noble and blaming the hot cocoa for your panting gets you escorted out.

    Anyways, I’m horrible at these things, but I’ll do my damn best work with this little tidbit….

  5. Congrats Angela, a well deserved award alright. I love your answers…Great blogging tips, I remember looking at Hot Wheels sites with my son too (who is now 16!) and maybe I should paint my bedroom pink too…lol… 😉
