Dorothy Sue and Millie B's too - The Liebster Award

Oh, this is an exciting day for me, indeed....
A lot like the day I received my first comment on my blog and realized that other people actually READ this thing!
I have been nominated by
for the Liebster Award!

A (very public) side note to Cathy: 
Your kind words about missing my posts when I hurt my back made me feel so good!!!  Really, sometimes we don't know just how much we can touch someone with our words...
Thank you Cathy!
Now...back to the Liebster Award!
What is it, you ask? 
Well, here's what I know about it...
It is an "internet" award that bloggers give to other
up & coming bloggers with less than 200 followers 
- similar to a chain letter -
that enables even more bloggers & readers to get to
know the "awarded" blogger better... 
Confused yet?  
Well here are the unofficial-official rules:
To accept the Liebster Award:
1.  You must link back to the person who nominated you.  Done.
 2.  Answer 11 random questions about yourself from the nominee.
....and the answers are: 
1. What do you consider to be one of your greatest accomplishments?
My 4 greatest accomplishments ( I can't choose just one!) are named Katie, Bri, Alex and Joey.  They are the greatest gifts I have ever received,  the blessings that I cherish daily and the inspiration to do all that I do.
2. What is your favorite blog post you've written?
I've only been blogging since May, so I would have to say that so far, I'm loving them all!  But I'm pretty proud of this one in particular because it's the first time that I really "heard" my voice come across in a post.
3. Why do you blog?
So that I can share AWESOMENESS with the world, of course!  Why does anyone blog?  Just kidding (well....sort of...) I blog because I want to share creativity with and inspire others!
4. What is your favorite guilty pleasure?
Reality TV - love it. 
5. What inspires you most?
Not what....but Who... God is my biggest inspiration.
6. What is something you've never done but, would like to try?
I think...(and I stress THINK)... that someday I may like to skydive. 
7. What is one thing not many people know about you?
I'm afraid of the dark....and now the cat's out of the bag! 
Other than that, I'm really an open book.
8. What is your favorite childhood memory?
Spending time during the summer with my Grandma Millie and Pop-pops Jack, in New Jersey and spending time with my Grandma Dorothy and Grandpa whenever I could.   
9. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
I don't think I'd like to live anywhere other than where I am...
the Pacific Northwest. 
10. If money were no object and you could do anything you like, what would that be?
I would love to Blog full time and not have to work outside the home so I could always be around for my kids. 
11. What is your favorite leisure activity?
Crafting, painting, creating and junkin'!
Okay, done!
3.  You must choose and notify 11 blogs of their nomination. 
4.  You must come up with 11 random questions for them.
Here are your questions, new nominees...
   What do you constantly think about that makes you happy?
   If you could retire tomorrow, what would you do?
  What famous person do people tell you that you most   resemble  and why?
  What type of music do you listen to? (Genre, artists, songs?)
  What do you do if you can’t sleep at night?
  Are you a creature of habit? Explain
 Where is the best place you've ever been to?
 What's inspiring you most these days?
 What cheers you up?
 If your life was a movie, what would it be called?
Why do you blog?
 And, done....
So.... I am now the proud owner of the Liebster Award....

In all seriousness.... thank you to those that do read my blog!
