Liebster Award


So earlier today I was notified that Adrienne from see Adrienne run nominated me for the Liebster Award!  Basically it’s an online award given by bloggers to bloggers who are up and coming.  Its a way to discover new blogs and give the bloggers with a smaller following some recognition!


Here are the guidelines and rules as were posted on Adrienne’s blog:


The Liebster Award Rules

1.) You must link back to the person who nominated you
2.) You must answer the 10 Liebster questions given to you by the nominee before you.
3.) You must pick 10 bloggers to be nominated for the award (with a small following)
4.) You must create 10 questions for your nominees
5.) You must go to their blogs and notify the nominees

So here are the questions that Adrienne came up with for the bloggers that she nominated to answer:

1.) Where are you from, and what is your favorite party about your city?

I am from a small city called Oswego, NY.  It is located about 40 miles to the north of Syracuse, NY.  My favorite part about Oswego is that it sits right on Lake Ontario and while it can be cold and super snowy during the winter, it is very beautiful and enjoyable once the weather warms up!

2.) Do you have any pets, and if so what kind and names?

I have two pets (three if you count a goldfish).  My two pug dogs named Duke and Daisey and the fish is named Debbie who was given that name by my then two year old daughter.

3.) If you had just won the lottery what would be the first thing you would purchase?

Hmm.  This is a hard one for me.  I have always said if I won the lottery that I wouldn’t spend any of it right away.  Although I do love fitness equipment, I’m not really that materialistic.  If I had to choose I guess it would be a really awesome treadmill with any feature you can imagine.  Or a lake house in the Adirondacks, haha. OK, I guess I would buy a few things 🙂

4.) What is your favorite season, and why?

My favorite season is Fall.  Not only do I love apple picking, pumpkin carving, and Fall temperatures but I LOVE FOOTBALL and Fall time means Sunday Football!!!

5.) What is your hidden talent?

I don’t consider myself a talented person in general but I can crochet.  Is that a talent? Haha.

6.) Who is your biggest celebrity crush?

I am not the kind of girl to crush on male celebrities but if I had to choose I think Adam Levine is super hot and I just might be in love with Benjamin Mckenzie! 🙂

7.) What is your favorite movie of all time?

My favorite movie of all time is probably the Bone Collector or Fallen.  I’ve always wanted to be an FBI agent and those dark and twisted story lines are my jam!

8.) If you could have one superpower what would it be and why?

If I could have one superpower it would probably be the ability to teleport.  I think it would be just awesome to be able to be wherever you wanted to be in the blink of an eye.

9.) Why did you start your blog?

In all honesty, I started my blog because I was going absolutely insane sitting in the house by myself in the middle of winter with two very needy children.  I have a passion for health and fitness and I had no one to share it with.  I thought a blog would be the perfect platform to share recipes and such even if no one read it! I’m still not sure how much of a successful blogger I will ever be but a lot of doors that have opened for me since starting the blog less than two months ago and I have connected with a lot of awesome people because of it too!

10.) To date, link you favorite blog post you have written

Hmm, this is a hard one because most of my posts have been recipes.  I think the first post that I wrote explaining why I started blogging would have to be my favorite because it was me just being real and open.  I wrote it more like a journal entry than a blog post because I didn’t have any idea what I was doing.  I still don’t, but I am learning 🙂 Here is the link.
