Liebster Award


  Kerry Steel of Design du Monde awarded me and 4 other fabulous bloggers the Liebster award.
The best part of receiving this award is finding new (to me) blogs and "meeting" other really nice folks.
The rules are as follows:
1. Post 11 facts about yourself.
2. Answer the 11 questions your nominator asks and then create 11 questions for the bloggers you nominate.
3. Choose 11 people with under 200 followers to nominate and link to them.
(I didn't do 11 but you can find my nominees below - please check them out)
4. Go to their pages and let them know. (no tag backs)

11  Things about me
1.  I have been married to the same man for almost 48 years.
2.  We met on a blind date in New Orleans and were married six months later.  Who said there isn't such a thing as love at first sight?
3.  We have two grown children and seven grandchildren, none of whom live close by unfortunately.
4.  After working for more than 35 years at two different positions (with some overlap) I retired in June 2011.
5.  I'm living my dream!
6.  I love doing Wordrobe Planning and Image presentations.
7.  Have just become a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant after using the wonderful products for many years and seeing great results.
8.  My goal is help women learn how to enhance the natural beauty with which they have blessed.
9.  I am a follower of Jesus Christ.
10.  I believe the scripture:  "Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you."
11.  Politically, I am a conservative and believe this is the most crucial presidential election our country may have ever faced.

  Kelly's questions for me
1. What is your favorite place to have visited?

2. What is your favorite food?
Oh my, this is a toughy!  Food is not that important to me, but I guess to play fair and be honest, I would have to say CHOCOLATE!  I do enjoy most anything chocolate with nuts.

3. What one expensive item for your home have you been saving for or recently splurged on?
Five years ago, hubby and I downsized and now live in a lovely Garden Home in a fairly new Gated Community.  Therefore, at this point in our retirement years, we no longer have expensive items on our "Gotta Have" list.  I did however, invest in new bedroom furniture when we moved which included a beautiful secretary for my living room.

4. What bad habit, that others have, really annoys you.
Okay ladies, I hope this doesn't offend any of you, but the thing that most drives me up the wall is a woman who talks with a high-pitched, squeaky voice.  Just can't handle that.

5. What celebrity do you most resemble?
I have been told that I resemble Sarah Palin to some degree.  Probably because of the glasses more than anything else.

6. Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Louisiana.  Was born in north Louisiana but spent most of my growing up years in the south central part of the state.  Acadiana!

7. What is your favorite kids movie?
I haven't seen one in so long I don't even remember.  I watched most of the Disney movies with grandchildren, and have some old Shirley Temple movies, but can't really say I have a favorite.

8. Do you prefer online shopping or real stores?
Can I just say, "I'm not a shopper?"  When I need something, I go a real store because I am difficult to fit, but shopping is just not my favorite thing to do.  Yes, I am Woman!

9. What and where is your favorite restaurant?
Goodness, all these "favorite" questions.  In Shreveport, LA:  For good down home cooking I like Strawn's;  Seafood - Shane's; Italian - Macaroni Grill; Lunch with lady friends - Fairfield Market, Cush's, Windrush; Mexican - Superior Grill; Steak - The Cub

10. If you could live anywhere else, where?
The side of a mountain in Colorado.  Since that is not an option, I'm perfectly content right here.

11. Cake or pie?
German Chocolate Cake hands down!
Blogs I am nominating!
OK so there aren't 11, but these are my favorite blogs within the criteria.  Look them up, I think you'll enjoy meeting each of these fine ladies and bloggers.
