The Liebster Award

Woohooo!  I got nominated for the Liebster Award from Chris at Wisdom, Courage, Power !  
I feel so warm & fuzzy inside!


Here’s how it works-the rules:
a) Each blogger posts 11 random facts about themselves.
b) Answer the questions the tagger has set for you
c) Choose 11 new bloggers to pass the award to/nominate.  From what I found, it's geared toward blogs with 200 followers or less. I didn't actually check {shrugs}
d) Come up with 11 new questions to ask your nominees
e) Go to their page and tell them about the award.
f) No tag backs!

I think I pretty much have the random facts covered in the "123 things" tab above!

Chris asks these questions......

1.  What are you passionate about?  I guess I'm passionate about my family.  I want what's best for them & to protect them & all of us to be happy and healthy. 

2.  What motivates you to get things done?  Hmm.  When it comes to domestic dullness, it's knowing that someone is coming over.  At work, I make myself deadlines.  Since I had no intention of going into work today (thanks, Nemo!), I made sure my in-box was empty, even if it just meant filing in the desk drawer.  And my to-file basket got emptied yesterday.  In regards to weight loss, it's the thought of feeling better & maybe even being willing to get in front of the camera for a change! 

3. What stops you from achieving your goals?  My own laziness

4.  Batman or Superman (Human physical and mental greatness or Alien god-like powers)?  
Batman.  I have a family history of Batmans (Batmen?) in my family.   I have a picture of my Dad & nephew wearing Batman shirts & scarily-enough, matching underwear.  My nephew is now 25 and still wears Batman stuff. 

5.  Do you have pets?  We have a Beagle & 2 cats.  Jack, Chester & Maddie.  They are all rescues and all totally spoiled.  Jack, we got as a puppy from a friend's neighbor whose Great Dane used him as a chew toy.  Both Chester (who is purring on my lap right now) and Maddie chose us from the Humane Society.  And we have 4 Gouramis (kissing fish) and 2 plecos (algae eaters) but they're not very exciting. 

this is his "I'm waiting for you to say a word I know" face.

6.  If you could travel anywhere for relaxation or excitement where and what would it be?  I'm pretty happy going anywhere new to me. I love to sight-see and look at old buildings & cemeteries and all sorts of stuff.  

7.  What is your favourite movie and why?  (LOL, my spell-check doesn't like the extra "U") probably Top Gun.  I think it played a subliminal part in my decision to join the Navy after high school.  I wanted to get away from where I grew up.  So I did!  Too bad I only live about 12 miles away now.

8.  Would you use a time machine to alter your past? Knowing that any changes made could completely change your life/knowledge/personality now?  No.  As much as I wish I'd stayed in the Navy sometimes, I know that my life would be very different if I had.  I know I'd never have met Randy and if I hadn't gotten out when I did, I would have been stationed on a ship and would have had to leave Angel with my parents and miss her toddler / little girl years.  So I'm happy where I am. 

9.  What’s your all time favourite band?  without a doubt, Def Leppard - I've been a fan since high school / late 80s.  I was so excited to go see them in concert last summer!

10.What makes a good friend?  Someone who you can talk to and have fun with and who knows (and keeps) all your secrets.   And if you're really get to marry your best friend!

11.  Why do you blog?  I actually have 3 blogs.  This one is geared toward keeping myself accountable to my weight loss / health / fitness journey.  This divided off of my original blog, which is just all randomness.  And the third is all about my Halloween display.   I figure it's a good way to talk about what interests me without my family having to hear my stories and thoughts over & over. And it's also a journal and planner of sorts. 

Alrighty - here are my victims, I mean, the lovely ladies who I'm passing this on to!
