The Liebster Award

The wonderful Amanda at Come Along Pond! gave me this award. I like it because the name is German. Okay, and it's just nice to get awards and answer/ask questions.

The Liebster Award is given to up-and-coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. Liebster is German for "sweetest," "kindest," "nicest," "dearest," "beloved," "valued," "endearing," and "welcoming." Aww.

1. List 11 things about yourself.
2. Answer the questions that the nominator has posed for you.
3. Nominate 11 up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.
4. Create 11 questions to ask the nominees.
5. Go to the page of each nominee and tell her about her award.

11 things about me:

1. Sometimes I like to cook...but I have to be in the mood for it. I prefer baking, regardless.
2. I'm a huge extrovert, but many assume I'm introverted since I'm quiet (at first).
3. Green is my favorite color.
4. The easiest thing in the world is getting me to laugh. (And I will love you for it.)
5. I still love stuffed animals. In fact, I asked for one for Christmas, and was thrilled (still am!) when I got him. His name is Sir Edward Bear. I didn't feel like being original.
6. To do lists make me extremely productive.
7. I write (varying amounts) every day.
8. Hugs are the best thing ever.
9. Usually, I really, really dislike phone calls. I very much prefer face-to-face, texts, emails, and chats. Still, answering the phone is one of my favorite parts of my office job. Who knew?
10. My inbox always reads "0 New". I open (or delete, if it's spam) every new email to keep it this way.
11. My closet doesn't have a door. I prefer it this forces me to keep it clean.

11 questions I was asked:

1. If you could date a historical figure, who would it be? I have no idea. I know that's a cop out answer...but I honestly don't know. Probably all the good guys are taken, and I wouldn't want to mess that up. Haha!
2. In the winter, do you prefer making snow angels or building a snowman? Why? Building a snowman, because snow angels require getting your whole back snowy...and I don't like being wet.
3. What is your favorite kind of candy? Chocolate! More specifically, milk chocolate truffles. So good.
4. Which Saint/Title or apparition of the Blessed Mother is a source of inspiration for you? Not being Catholic, I'm afraid I don't have an answer for this.
5. What do you do to cope with sadness? If it's deep sadness, I sit quietly and think or pray, then do things to take my mind off it. If it's a lesser sadness, I'll probably go to my room and cry.
6. What kind of toppings do you like on your tacos? Cheese and lettuce... I'm boring when it comes to Mexican food, since I don't like tomatoes or anything spicy.
7. In another life, would you rather be an impala or an iguana? Being an iguana would be so cool!
8. Do shopping sprees help you relieve stress or are you an anti-shopper? ...Neither? I like shopping with friends, but not in general, and I rarely buy anything. I just like the time with friends, and am not picky about the activity. But I wouldn't say I'm anti-shopping.
9. What does your dream home look like? It's my home/store...the main floor has the bookstore and coffee shop, complete with at least one fireplace, several comfy chairs, and some cute seating areas. It'll be a place writers and readers can come to be comfortable and inspired--whether they buy books or coffee or not. The basement will be a place to hang out...and have the laundry, heater, &c. just because that's necessary. Finally, the upstairs will have my room/office (hopefully including a balcony...I rather love balconies) and at least two other rooms for my friends to stay in!
10. What is your favorite mystery of the Rosary? Again, not Catholic...
11. Do you think you will actually do all these questions? I answered the ones I could!

5. Share your passions.
6. Do you wear any special jewelry?
7. Which relatives are you closest to?
