I was surprised to log into WordPress and see that Krissy of Moving Mommy had nominated me for a Liebster Award! How exciting! I did some research into the origins of the award and found that over the years there have been many different variations of the recognition but basically it is meant to bring traffic to new, up and coming blogs. How fantastic! As a new blogger, I can use all the help I can get. I tweaked this a little from the way I received it but the premise is the same…I will give you 5 facts about me, I will answer 5 questions posed by previous nominees and then I will pass the honor onto 5 other bloggers with under 200 followers. I normally don’t do ‘chain letter’ type things but I truly believe in the power of networking in the blogosphere. Yes, I just used the word blogosphere. So, here we go!
5 facts about me:
1. My husband and I hitchhiked through 10 states in the summer of 2011.
2. My family eats a mostly Paleo, gluten free diet.
3. My husband and I eloped and got married in Las Vegas.
4. I am an advocate of natural childbirth and I would like to become a midwife.
5. We went to Costa Rica on our honeymoon.
Q: What musical artist are you listening to these days?
I’ve been listening to M83’s album “Saturdays=Youth” over and over again because my 5 week old son loves it and it puts him right to sleep.
Q: What do you say when your (or someone else’s) kid asks you why the sky is blue?
Because that’s the way we perceive it.
Q: If money were no object, where would you travel on your next vacation?
Australia. My husband lived there for a year as a child and I hope we are able to take our children there someday.
Q: What was your very first job?
Ha! I was a child actor in a live show in Branson, MO when I was ten years old. If you aren’t familiar with Branson then that probably won’t make any sense to you. If you are familiar with Branson then I’m sorry.
Q: At what age is your earliest memory?
When I was two years old, I developed ulcers in all the soft tissue of my digestive system. I was in the hospital for a week on a morphine drip. I remember bits and pieces of it like the ride to the hospital and being given a Sesame Street circus train toy.
And now for my nominees! I hope you will take a moment to give these blogs a look and show them some recognition for their hard work.
1. Ms. Adventures in Mommyhood
2. The Pampered Pink Box
3. Parent Trapped
4. Barefoot and Loving It
5. Ledoux Sands
Thanks again to Moving Mommy for nominating me. I hope you enjoyed learning a little more about me and I look forward to learning more about the ladies I chose.
