The Liebster Award

I was given this lovely award by my Mom, at Homeschooling with Joy. 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."  Thanks Mom!

Here are the "rules" for The Liebster Award: 
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.

So here are the 11 things about me:
  1. I'm an introvert, which doesn't mean I'm shy or I hate people.  I love being with people and being social, but I can only handle it in smaller doses, and I draw my energy from being alone rather than being always surrounded by people.  
  2. If a person/place/thing is something everyone else absolutely loves to death and oh my gosh it's the greatest thing since canned corn, I tend to dislike it or not even bother just because.  Hence the reason I've never read G.K. Chesterton (know lots of people who rave over him), I'm not a big David Tennent fan (because he's everyone else's favorite Doctor) and you'll never see Downton Abbey on my list of favorite TV shows (because it's the darling of the rest of the world). I'm contrary with a lot of things like that ;)  Not all, but a lot.
  3. I recently decided I like pickles and guacamole.  But not together.
  4. I have a wild side.  I've thought about getting my ears double pierced.  
  5. I am also a sarcastic person....
  6. Going off of #2, I have already decided that beer is going to be my favorite beverage after I turn 21 just because I've had several people tell me that they could never see me liking beer.  So there.
  7. My dream job is working in a library or a bookstore.
  8. One of my biggest pet peeves is people who gloat when they win.  I could care less if I lose the game, but if you beat me and you have a smug attitude about it... don't expect me to be anything close to a gracious loser.
  9. When you first meet me, I'm a very quiet person and prefer to listen to what you or everyone else has to say.  After a time though (few weeks to a month or two) I will open up and start talking a lot more.
  10. Personally, I think we should elect a nun for Pope.

       Joking! Joking!  Totally joking! Keep your mitres on, the last thing I want is a nun as Pope.

Now for the 11 questions that I was asked.

1.  What prayer do you find comfort in?  The Memorare
2.  What is your guardian angels name? Matthew, I like to call him Matt, but I think he prefers Matthew.
3.  Beef or chicken? Beef.
4.  What is your favorite eye color and why? Brown... because blue eyes are in every song and story and TOTALLY overrated (just like blonde hair...), also my Knight's eyes are brown.
5.  Describe your dream vacation.  Some place quiet, in the mountains with extensive forests and a small river and maybe a few little waterfalls.
6.  Would you rather live someplace rural or urban and why?  Rural... I like having space, the scenery.  Urban seems so close and clustered and loud.
7.  Which season is your favorite?  Fall.  Spring is a close second, but in Fall the weather tends to be a steadier mild, and not so much cold and warm and cold and hot and cold like Spring can be.
8.  What is the farthest place you have traveled to?  Treasure Island, Florida
9.  Would you rather work for someone else or be self-employed?  I would much rather work for someone else
10. David Tennat or Matt Smith?  Matt Smith
11. What do you like to do on a Sunday?  Go to Mass, come home and just be at home with no one else around and nothing that I have to do.

And 11 people to tag... Well, I don't really follow that many blogs, but here are a few!

And anyone else who is reading this who hasn't been given this award already!

11 questions for the next round of people

1.  If you could date a historical figure, who would it be?
2.  In the winter, do you prefer making snow angels or building a snowman? Why?
3.  What is your favorite kind of candy?
4.  Which Saint/Title or apparition of the Blessed Mother is a source of inspiration for you?
5.  What do you do to cope with sadness?
6.  What kind of toppings do you like on your tacos?
7.  In another life, would you rather be an impala or an iguana?
8. Do shopping sprees help you relieve stress or are you an anti-shopper?
9.  What does your dream home look like?
10. What is your favorite mystery of the Rosary?
11.  Do you think you will actually do all these questions?

Have fun!
