Many thanks to Shammee for nominating me! Check out her blog at http://iiteeeestudents.wordpress.com/
The rules to accept the Liebster Award are as follows:
Thank the person who nominated you, answer the 11 questions they have asked you, nominate 11 other people and ask them 11 original questions of your own. According to the guidelines, the Liebster award should be sent to bloggers with less than 200 followers, and I finally figured out how to find that information so I am feeling pretty invincible right now!
Here are my answers to Shammee’s questions:
1> What is your favorite thing to do? Spending time just being me, doing my own thing whatever that might be at the moment. Time by myself is a rare gift!
2> What is your most memorable moment ? Wow, I did not realize I had so many…but, if I had to pick one in order to answer this question I would have to say my first genuine date after being married for too long!
3> What’s the story of your First Crush? It was 8th grade. I was 12. He was 13. I loved his pretty black hair. Then one day, I was standing in line after recess admiring his obvious cuteness when he sneezed. His face contorted in such a way that I forgot all about his pretty black hair. Totally ruined it for me!
4> When were you really scared to death ? Wow, not sure you really want to know the answer to this one, but it was when my so-called husband followed me into my closet, grabbed me by my neck, dropped me to the floor, and released my neck for a moment just to get a better grip. That would have to be my answer, sorry.
5> What is the most silly thing you have tried? Hmm… to fix someone else!
6> Which is your favorite destination? My hometown, New Orleans!
7> Do you believe in supernatural beings (If Yes than WHy?) Absolutely. I believe because I was driven home by one. Bet you didn’t expect that answer. I wrote about it in a post called Angel Eyes.
8> Who is your role model & why ? Honestly? Jesus…can’t think of anyone else I should look up to.
9> Do you believe in destiny ? In part, yes I do. I guess I believe in a mixture of destiny and responsiblity. I don’t believe destiny is something that just happens. I think we create it with our choices and it is what it is because of that.
10> What is your biggest strength & weakness ? I feel too hard. That has definitely been my biggest strength as well as biggest weakness.
11> Which is your favorite quote ? When someone shows you who they are for the first time, believe them. – Maya Angelou. Wish I heard that years ago. 🙂
