Liebster Award

Liebster Award – Thank you Lizzie Lau from Boogers are Yucky for nominating me!

Lizzie at Boogers Are Yucky (Really, can you think of a more truthful title???) nominated me for a Liebster Award.   The Liebster Award is an accolade passed around by bloggers with fewer than 500 followers.  It’s a way to give bloggers an exposure boost, and a little love. Liebster is a German term of endearment that translates as that means sweetheart, beloved, or darling. I was honored to be chosen by Lizzie and am delighted at the opportunity to pass it on.

11 Things About Me

  1. I was born in NYC, but am definitely a country girl – country music, country fairs, & country fresh air!
  2. After my husband left, I took my 4 boys tent camping while 8 months pregnant – a tornado touched down less than a mile from our campground. It definitely gave us something else to talk about! 😉
  3. I’ve since taken my boys camping up and down the coast and out to the Creation Museum in Kentucky where we survived more intense storms. We LOVED the Creation Museum!
  4. I travel the country camping but am afraid to order a pizza – It doesn’t make sense to me either! 🙂
  5. One of my best friends caused lasting scars when she told me the reason my hair was curly was because my mother didn’t cut the crust off my bread like hers did! 😉
  6. Hoping God won’t notice and I’ll eventually wake up with straight hair, I eat my pizza, crust first.
  7. It just occurred to me that the curly hair thing and the pizza crust first thing may explain #4.
  8. I play many sports, but was once asked if I had a motor disability while aerobic dancing. That day, I bought a step and have never done aerobic dancing in public again.
  9. When I couldn’t find a “real job,” I started my own business and have helped 100’s of kids get into their top colleges including Harvard, Cornell, William & Mary, and Notre Dame among others.
  10. Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber would be close to my ideal ticket in 2106
  11. I spend some time with the Lord every day, either reading the Bible or praying the Rosary. This is how I survive.
