Liebster Award

RealLifeAfter40!!  (and the crowd goes wild)

Oh……..gawd!! How freakin’ crazy is this!!  Never been nominated for anything, especially for writing!  I am truly grateful, thank you for nominating me for this distinguished award, I am truly honored.

3. List eleven facts about yourself.
4. Answer the questions the award-giver asked you and make 11 more for your nominees.
5. List your nominees.


Hmmm, RUI from Oz:

1.   I’m a shoe whore. Literally, buy several pairs at one time.
2. I own all the Sex in the City episodes and movies, watch them over and over. I’m the Carrie Bradshaw of Texas.
3. I have a 4 bedroom house, but spend all my time in my 18′ x 16′ bedroom.
4. I’ve been a fitness instructor for 10 years.
5. I’ve self-published 2 books and workin’ on about 20 more!
6. I love Tequila but it puts me to sleep (no, not passed out! yawning, can’t hold my head up sleepy), so I drink Raspberry Rum instead.
7. I converted one bedroom in my house to my closet. It’s lined with hanging clothes and shoes! (can you say Carrie Bradshaw!! Sorry I loved the series, my BBE’s and I are just like them)
8. I refer to my best girlfriends as the BBE’s ~ Best Bitches Ever
9. My first love is poetry (odd, I know, right)
10. I could eat chips and salsa everyday. Morning, noon and night.
11. I’m a beach gypsy and will live at the beach one day.


11 distinguished questions ask me:

  1. If you could make one piece of clothing illegal, what would it be?  A thong swimsuit; confidence is one thing, stoopid is another!
  2. If you could travel anywhere, for free, where would you go? And why?  Beach hop through the Caribbean.   Any beach is my happy place.
  3. If the bank made a mistake, and put sixty thousand dollars in your account, what would you do?   Seriously??  I’d go beach hopping!! lol
  4. What are your thoughts on legalizing marijuana?  I’m a virgin.  I ride the fence on that one, I know cancer patients that partake on it and it helps them cope.
  5. What is your favorite childhood memory?  So strange, I’m writing a post about this!  One memory is catching butterflies with my Granpdaddy’s minnow net.
  6. What did you want to be when you grew up, and what do you do instead?  A commercial artist.  I became a mother and end up in healthcare and now I’m unemployed. Ha!
  7. What happened on the best workday you’ve ever had?   Is there a best workday??  Been so long I can’t remember – lol
  8. What was your favorite thing that your mother used to cook for you?   Oven tacos
  9. Do you believe in soul mates or love at first sight?    Yes, I do!  I also believe that your soul can be ripped to shreds and it changes you forever.
  10. If you could go back in time, and change one thing, what would it be? (I borrowed this from questions because I love it)    I’d reincarnate myself into J.K. Rowlings – LOL!!  (I can’t answer this question seriously)
  11. Are you married? And if so, describe your proposal.   Nope


And mine nominees for Liebster Award are:

Now it’s your turn to answer distinguished questions:

1. Do you speak more than on language? (swearing doesn’t count)
2. If you could live any where in the world where would it be?
3. What was the name of the first movie you saw in a theater?
4. Favorite band in high school?

    I added you to my WordPress Blog Roll, but for some reason my blogger blog rolls are not playing nice. 😦 I’ll add you to them when I figure out what the heck is wrong. P.S. I have a “community”-type blog where you are welcome to guest post to if you feel so inclined. Just let me know and I’ll send you an invite.

    Sorry for being so long-winded. (long-keyboarded?)

    I am very much a rookie at blogging. I will attempt to do the tasks set out. However, I don’t really follow a lot of other blogs. I do read yours when I get some time. Thank you for including me!
