Read all about it



Twice now, that is twice I have been nominated for an award in two months, granted it’s not the Nobel Peace Prize, it’s not the Academy Awards- but it’s damn close in this Blogger world.

Okay, it’s not really close, but in my mind it’s like winning FREE ice cream for life, and that my friends is like a dream come true.

ice-creamI would pick the Mint with the Chocolate chips, which one would you pick?

If your not interested in hearing tiny little details about me that you may already know, or really don’t care to know- you have my permission to close your browser now.

WAIT, I was just kidding- don’t leave me!




The rules are as follows:

  • Thank the person who nominated you, and tag him or her in your post.
  • Thank you Lulu!
  • Answer the 11 questions asked of you.
  • Nominate 5-11 other bloggers (ideally with 1000 or fewer followers), and inform them of their nominations.
  • Create 11 new questions for your nominees to answer.

Here are the 11 questions I have been asked to answer


-What is your favorite season 

            Easily Fall, the crisp temperature’s , my favorite sweatshirt and boots, the best sleeping and walking  weather ever and getting ready to hibernate for the winter.    All my favorite things.



If you won the lottery and never needed to work again, what would you do with your time? Would you still want to work even if you didn’t have to?

I would travel to a few spots I really want to go, but then I would buy my dream house  and spend my time decorating it, landscaping, gardening.

Pretty sure it would look something like this



What is your favorite way to pass time or relax on a Saturday afternoon?

I can’t remember the last time I relaxed on a Saturday afternoon, but when I do, I will read, watch a good movie, cook, take a walk, clean.  I love to be in my house, it is seriously my favorite place to be.



Do you have any pets? What kind?

No, No pets.  Can I just leave it at that?  No, no because that would not be me.  I am a neat freak, I LOVE to clean, it is my therapy- honestly if I have a particularly bad day I can work it out in my head by doing laundry or organizing a closet.   Pets are dirty, they leave hair and dirt and dander and slobber EVERYWHERE, I can’t deal…I just can’t.



Where is your ideal weekend getaway?

I live in Wisconsin, well on the border of MN and WI, they are both beautiful states but if I could go anywhere for the weekend I would pick the North Shore in Minnesota, Two harbors or farther north.   It is one of the most beautiful places to be in my mind and holds thousands of some of my most amazing memories.


Are you more of a city person, country person, or somewhere in between?

Country, I spent summers growing up in Iowa,and my school years in Minnesota , I feel more comfortable in the country by far than in the city.



Do you have a favorite television show? What is it?

Don’t laugh, but right now it is Married at first sight.  I love this show, I think people could learn a lot about relationships from this show- I know I have!



What was your favorite subject when you were in school?

It always makes me laugh when people ask that question, because if I were to answer honestly I would say ” I didn’t have one”.  I spent more time in detention or the smoking lounge than actually sitting in a class room. BUT…  If I had to pick one I would say Creative writing. If you want to know more, you can read all about my High school years here.

Everything you need to know about me can be summed up in my High School transcripts



E-reader or old-fashioned book?

Old Fashioned book, something about having it held in my hand, the feel of the paper, putting a book mark between the pages, having it sit on your bedside table, sharing it with people when your done reading it.   No comparison for me.



Have you ever taken a road trip? Where did you go? What was it like?

Yes, and I love them.  However, I have not taken any long ones, I have gone to Iowa, The north shore, Canada , Wisconsin, Illinois.   My favorite road trip was the first solo trip I took to Iowa to visit my Dad’s grave site a couple years after he died and while I was in the middle of a divorce from my second husband..  That was the most healing trip I have ever been on.

What is one piece of advice or wisdom that you hope your future self never forgets?

I know it feels like you will never get over it, but I promise you will get over it and it will teach you things you will use for the rest of your life.  You will never be the same, but that my dear is the point.



I must now nominate  5 , make that six bloggers for the same award- I won’t nominate the same one’s I did last time, because I believe in spreading the love around, not literally, but in blogging fashion.

I actually made it my mission in the last 24 hours to find six new Blogs to follow, and I am intrigued by all of them, hope you will take some time to check them out.
