Liebster Awards From Amanda & Ericka

Wednesday, March 6, 2013

I was nominated for a Liebster Award from both Amanda at Things to Hold and Stir and Ericka at This Crazy Thing Called Life. I'm going to consolidate these two because I only have a short lunch break to get some writing in.  Thank you ladies for the nomination!

  1. What is your most irrational fear? My teeth falling out.  I have nightmares about this ALL the time!
  2. Red, White or Champagne? Firstly, best question ever, secondly red but white comes in a close second.
  3. What is your most recent cringe-worth moment? Ugh, work related screw up. Luckily I fixed it with only minimal damage.
  4. All expenses paid, where are you taking your next trip?  ANYWHERE warm. 
  5. How did you spend New Years Eve this year e.g. was it an accurate reflection of 2013 so far? I was sick on New Years and spent it on a friend's couch.  I'm not sick anymore but I haven't done much beyond sitting on couches so still pretty accurate.
  6. Do you prefer e-readers or actual books? I still love my books but I will admit that since I got a nook I haven't read a real book.
  7. Last concert you saw or wish you saw? Florence and the Machine at Phoenix Park!
  8. Who is your fashion icon and why? What is fashion?
  9. Do you blog as a job, hobby, latter hoping for former? Hobby.  I'd love to writing for a living but I don't think this blog would be the way!
  10. What is your dream job? Traveling & writing & eating
  11. Do you have any pets? My wonderful Mac
  12. What is your go-to outfit or accessory? See question 8.
  13. Who is your favorite band/musician? This changes too often for me to put it down in writing.  I can safely say that classic rock will always be my go-to favorite genre. 
  14. What is your favorite place to go on vacation? The beach!  
  15. What is your favorite movie? Shawshank Redemption 
  16. If you could go on a $1000 shopping spree, where would you go and what would you buy? I really need a new wardrobe but can I just give the money to someone else and have them shop for me?
  17. Do you have any weird or hidden talents? I mimic sounds really well.  This generally just annoys people so I guess I also have the ability to annoy people without talking.
  18. What is your signature dish/meal that you cook? I make a mean omelet. 
  19. What was your favorite subject in school? History!! 


  1. Congratulations on the award!
    I always dream of my teeth falling out too! It is horrible!

  2. I also have nightmares where my teeth fall out! It feels so real that when I wake up I have to run my tongue over my teeth to make sure they're still there.

  3. Love this post. The awards are always a nice way to get to know the little things about you :)
    The beach is my absolute favorite place to go on vacation, too! Love the beaches around the East Coast, up north of Salem ;)
    And I totally agree with you on the fashion thing...I've never been a big fan of shopping - of course I like nice clothes but I'm not the one that always has the newest trend. I want somebody to shop for me, too, that's a fantastic idea!
