Bloggy Award

Recently, Sherry over at The Sweet Life of the Reeses nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award.  It is an award given to "up-and-coming bloggers" and is based off of the German word, Liebster, meaning dearest.  Thanks, Sherry!


Here's how it works:

I'll answer the questions that Sherry asked, and then I'll ask 5 different questions to the 5 bloggers I nominate (I'm changing the "rules" from 11 to 5!).  If you see your blog listed, write a post on your own blog answering the questions I asked, then it's your turn to nominate and pose questions to 5 (or, 11) different bloggers.  Make sense? It's a fun, easy way to spread some bloggy love!

My answers to Sherry's questions:

1.  If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? Europe.  Hands down.  And Hawaii.  And NYC with my hubby.  And...

2.  Who is your best friend in the world and how did you meet him/her? A sister is a girl's best friend from birth, but my best girlfriend is Brandi.  We met our freshman year of college, which means we're going on 12 years of friendship!

3.  Did you have a childhood hero, and if so, who was it?
My parents - they still are.

4.  What is your favorite beverage (alcoholic or not)?
Non-alcoholic: coffee.  Alcoholic: Amaretto Sour, with extra cherries!

5.  If you could have a vacation home in a destination of your choice, where would it be?
As long as a body of water is within walking distance, I'd be happy.

6.  What is your dream job?
I'm doing it.  Staying home with Ethan is the best job I never thought I wanted.  Someday I'd like to be able to get back into volunteering with the Special Olympics.

7.  What is your greatest goal in life?
Hello, deepness.  My ultimate goal is to get to Heaven.  I'd like to hear "well done, my good and faithful servant" when I get there.  I have a lot of work to do.

8.  What is your idea of the perfect date?
Actually, because we just planned it for our anniversary, I'll tell you ... A swanky hotel room overlooking one of the greatest rivers in N.C. (in my humble opinion), dinner and fresh-brewed beer, a sunset stroll on the riverwalk, sleeping in, and lounging by the pool.  Maybe one day...

9.  If you could buy anything (just one thing though), what would it be?
A Honda Odyssey. I'm not even joking.

10.  Would you rather be able to sing or dance if you could only do one really well?
Dance.  Who marries someone known as "The Dancing Machine" and can't dance?!

11.  What color do you wear to make yourself feel better?
Black.

My nominations (giving some love to my in real life blogging buddies):

1.  Heather @ The Balsley Bunch
2.  Shannon @ Carolina Carters
3.  Alinna @ what we're made of
4.  Rebecca @ Of Law School and Lullabies
5.  Jenn @ re{de}fining

And my questions for you:

1.  What is one trait that you'd most like to pass on to your children?
2.  What types of flowers were in your bridal bouquet?
3.  Tell us about one of your favorite childhood memories.
4.  Which household chore do you like the most?
5.  What is the most played song in your iTunes library?

Have fun!

Great answers, Joye! I know you'll get that romantic perfect date very soon. Hopefully, you guys can re-book it once little man is feeling better! I love Wilmington! Oh and I think I need to connect to your friend Rebecca from the looks of her blog title...sounds like we might have something in common! ;-)

You made me laugh out loud with the Honda Odyssey. Seriously! Ha! What's wrong with the...what is it you call the car? :) For the record, there's nothing at all wrong with the Odyssey, it just really made me laugh!

Thanks for the award! I guess that means I better actually start blogging again, huh?
