Liebster Award

So we have been nominated for a Liebster Award 
by six of our fellow bloggers!!!
A big thanks to Janet Planet Nails and Polish Insomnia
I had heard of the Liebster award before this a several of the blogs that I follow have been awarded it. 
In fact I saw this on Erica's Nails And More's 
page several days ago. 
Now at the time I had really no idea what it was,
 so I did a goggle search on it at that time.

So I would like to tell you a little about the Liebster Award
'Liebster' is a German word that means favorite 
or preferred above others.
This award can only be given to a blogger by another blogger.
This award helps us to get to know something about the blogger.
It's for bloggers who have less than 200 followers.

Let's start with the rules:
1. Post eleven facts about yourself. 
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you and create eleven questions for people you have nominated. 
3. Choose eleven people to give this award to (with fewer than 200 followers) and link them to your post. 
4. Go to their page and tell them. 
5. Remember, no tagbacks! 

So let's start with those fun facts about me.

Here are the questions from Tricksie Talon from The Talon Trap

  1. Coke or Pepsi? (Or water?)
Of the three water.... But really it Would be Dr. Pepper. Even as I write this I am wearing my Dr. Pepper t-shirt.

Piers Anthony's On a Pale Horse. It showed me a really cool perspective on different religions.

  4. What do you love about writing your blog?
Honestly, it gives me a place to put my obsession that keeps it out of the way of my family and friends that are not polish inclined (*gasp* There are people out there like that. What is wrong with them.)

  5. Is there a place you must visit someday? Where?
No not really, but my husband wants to go to the Czech Republic, Ireland and Scotland. Me with my fear of planes and massive motion sickness will go along with him, because I love him and it will make him happy.

  6. What is your favorite thing to have for dinner?
Mashed potatoes.

To absorb other powers by being near them, that way I could have them all.... I want to be like Peter Petrelli, we have been watching Heroes on Netflix.

  8. What is your favorite scent and why? Is it evocative of a time and place?
Vanilla oil from The Soap Opera. Reminds me of my mother and food. LOL

  9. What is a pet peeve of yours?
Seat belts that are twisted. Can't stand it, even if I am not wearing that seat belt I will fix it. I can't stand not wearing on in the car, but until it is fixed I can't wear it.

 10. Who is your favorite cartoon character?
Do I have to pick one? Dr. Seuss anything. But of what he does it would have to be the Grinch and the Lorax.

 11. Do you love or hate dark chocolate? (I find it's rarely a medium response!)
Well honestly, it hates me. It gives me a headache and a tummy ache.
