Liebster Award

Pam at The Patriotic Pam nominated me for the Liebster Award! As a new blogger, I am super excited to share more about myself and my blog! Thank you Pam for the opprotunity!

The Liebster Award is given by bloggers to bloggers who have less than 200 followers (hey that's me!) I chose some blogs that caught my eye but didn't necassarily carry the same theme. 

1. Each blogger should answer the questions the tagger has set for you. 
2. Choose eleven new bloggers to pass the award on to and link them in your post.
3. Create eleven new questions for the chosen bloggers.
4. Go back to their page and tell them about the award.
5. Each blogger should post eleven random facts about themselves.
6. No Tag Backs!!!

The Bloggers I Am Nominating Are:

Questions Pam made for me:
{1}  What made you start blogging? I wanted somewhere to write down moments of my life like an electronic public diary 

{2}  Who do you admire most? My mom. She held the family together by the skin of her teeth and put up with my shit growing up!

{3}  Favorite vacation? Any trip back home to California!

{4}  Your most admirable trait? I am always smiling :)

{5} Sweats or Dresses? Summer dresses winter sweats!

{6} Dogs or Cats? Depends on the animal. If its got a great personality we'll get along, but if it pees in my house, theres the door! 

{7}  What is your favorite thing to do with friends? Anything that involves being together!

{8}  Grilling or Crockpot-ing? Grilling when my husband does it. He gets really creative and his food turns out amazing!

{9}  Tell us your favorite Sports team? Sports... whats that? :)

{10}  How many states have you lived in? 3: California (ages born to 19) Colorado (ages 19 to 22) and New Mexico (haven't had another birthday yet)

{11}  Since these are all military spouses, favorite thing you LOVE about being a milspouse? I would say unity. All I need to know if you're a military spouse and I already feel a connection with you.
