It's a major award! It's a Liebster Award!

I can't believe it!  'What the heck's a bonbon?' was nominated for a Liebster Award by Jillian at I am a Homemaker!  I feel the need to give a speech:

I would like to thank Jillian and the Academy of other small bloggers out there.  I'd also like to thank my family who put up with so much... waiting for me to take pictures of their food before they are allowed to eat it...giving me "just one more minute" to "finish something up" on a regular basis...being the guinea pigs for just about everything my brain comes up with.  It's such an honor to be nominated...

What the heck's a Liebster Award, you ask?  Well, it's a cool award given out from writers of small blogs to writers of other small blogs as a way to say "Hey! You're alright!" and "I dig what you're doing!"  It's a great tool for finding fresh new reading material for you, too.

I was asked a bunch of questions when I received this major frah-gee-lay award. Here are my answers:

1. Why did you start blogging?

I forgot how much I loved to write until I started reading other blogs.  So I thought, hey!  I can do that too!  And I did.

2. Are you a Mac or PC person?

PC.  Although I do have an iPhone and can not for the life of me understand how to navigate a Droid.

3. What time do you go to bed at night?

10:00.  But I have been known to fall asleep on the couch much earlier. #partyanimal

4. If there was one major renovation you could make to your home for free, what would it be?

I would finish our basement.  Or put in a pool.  Or a basketball court.  Or...

5. Fruit Loops or Lucky Charms?

I am going to have to go with neither and give big props to Fruity Pebbles.

6.What is your favorite TV show?

Right now it's Walking Dead.  In the past it's been the X Files, Six Feet Under, and My So-Called Life to name a few.

7. Disney World, love it or leave it?

I loved it when I was there, but was able to leave it just fine.

8. What is your favorite flower?

Lily of the Valley

9. Give us the link to the post you feel best represents you and the purpose of your blog.


10. If you were a candy, which one would you be?

You know those weird wafer-like flying saucers that have strange sprinkles inside when you bite into them?  That's me.  Because they are weird.  And I am weird.

11. What is your favorite thing about blogging?

I love being able to write and make people chuckle every once in a while.
