The Liebster Award!

I have been nominated for The Liebster Award, not just once but twice in the same week.  YEAH!  The Leibster award is given to new and up-and-coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers who deserve some recognition and support to keep on blogging. The award is passed on to other bloggers that fit the criteria to help spread the word.

As a nominee I have to nominate another 11 bloggers, Post 11 random facts about myself, Answer 11 questions for the awarding blogger and ask 11 questions to the 11 bloggers I nominated. That’s it, sounds hard but it’ll be really fun!
So here are the lovely ladies that nominated my blog for this award:  First up is Megan over at Busy, Young, Single Mom Sanity. Go on over and check out Megan’s blog. She is an adorable young mom of 2 adorably cute little ones.  Second up is Amy over at The Stitchin Mommy.  She is the stitchin’ Queen who makes all sorts of adorable little creations.   I am incorporating the questions from both of my nominators to keep it easier on myself. 
 Here are my questions from Busy, Young, Single Mom Sanity
1} If you had the chance to go back in time, where and when would you go?
I would go back to my Senior year in High School.  This was a critical year for making such BIG life decisions.  I would have chosen to go to college for 4 years instead of only doing 2.  I would have taken a little more time to soul search and figure what career decision to make.  Instead, I had NO idea what to do with my life and I chose to do 2 years in a general business.  Looking back now, my talents were in the arts or interior design field. 
2} If you were granted three wishes, what would they be?
Wish #1- For ALL four of my boys to grow up to be happy, successful young gentlemen. 
Wish #2 – For me and Mr. DD to be healthy and happy for at least another 40 years so we can celebrate 50 years together.
Wish #3 – For my parents and my mother-in-law to age gracefully and to live out the rest of their lives healthy and disease free.
3} Your best recipe post?
4} Your best DIY post?
Decorating Glass Blocks
5} Let’s spice up Liebster questions! Draw a puppy blindfolded, take a picture and post it as the answer.
This was actually better than I thought it would be.  It was fun to do.  Tip:  I used my left finger as a guide on the page to mark where I left off.
6} The most inspiring person in your life and why?
My Husband – Mr. DD.  He believes in himself and he believes in me.  He continually encourages me when I can’t.  He always has a positive outlook and encourages me to do the same.  He makes me laugh and teaches me to not be so serious and laugh at myself.  Even when I am mad at him he makes me smile. 
7} Your being shipped to an island and can only bring one item(not person) for survival, what would it be?
A leatherman tool, which is a multi purpose tool.
8} Your most popular blog post?
9} You can only eat one kind of sandwich for the rest of your life, what kind?
Egg – it can be fried, scrambled, egg salad and many more combinations. 
10} Favorite restaurant, why?
Applebees – It is not because of the food.  I met Mr. DD online and our first face to face meeting was for lunch at Applebees on December 27, 2000.  Mr. DD proposed to me on December 27, 2002 at lunch at the same Applebees we meet at.  We have gone to Applebees every year on December 27 th since our very first meeting. 
11} The blog you read the most? Outside of your own of course.
The Space Between
This was a really tough one to answer, because I read so many good blogs and I have more than one favorite.  I have to say I read almost every post that Karah posts.  Some other blogs, I may skim quickly through the post and not read it.  I could list a bunch, but will stick to the one.

Slice of peanut butter toast
