Liebster Award

Last week, I was nominated for a Liebster Award. Thank you, Lana who blogs at Two Teens and Their Mama for this nomination. I am grateful. After checking out Lana’s blog for the details and doing a little research, it appears that this award is given to new bloggers who have less than 500 or 200 followers {I read both numbers}. I also read that the word liebster is German in origin and has several definitions such as dearest, sweetest, beloved as well as LOVELY. Oh, that made me smile! Evidently, there are several sets of rules, but the one I was nominated with are the as follows:

  • Make a post about the award, thanking the blogger that nominated you. {check- again Thank you, Lana}
  • State 11 interesting facts about yourself
  • Answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger that nominated you
  • Nominate 11 new bloggers with 500 or 200 or less followers
  • Write 11 new questions for your nominees

Interesting facts about me – all 11 of them:

  • I was born in Iowa but have lived most of my life in Texas.
  • Winnebago motor homes were built {and still are} in my home town.
  • My entire family was featured in an issue of McCall’s magazine to promote Winnebago {I was seven at the time}.
  • I’m actually older than my husband and we will celebrate our 20th anniversary in October.
  • I snorkeled once even though I am somewhat terrified of being in the water when I can’t touch the bottom.
  • I have been to Romania on mission trips five different times.
  • I enjoy push-ups and pull-ups and lifting weights.
