Liebster Award...

Yesterday, sweet  Natalie G. gave me a Liebster Award.  From what I gather, it is just a fun way to recognize other small bloggers and learn a bit more about each other.   Fun, huh!

So here is how it works:

1.  Thank the person who nominated you and link your post to their blog.
2.  List 11 facts about yourself then answer the 11 questions given to you.
3.  Create 11 more questions for your 9 nominees, all of whom have 200 or less followers.
4.  Comment on their blogs to inform them of their Liebster Award nomination.

11 things about myself that you might not know...

1.  My children are basically the same distance apart as my brother, sister and I are - 16 months, and 14 months.
2.  My sister is part of Father Barron's Catholicism Project, working for Word on Fire!
3.  I cannot stand the feel of chalk.
4.  I worked in the White House.
5.  If I could choose a talent I didn't have, it would be to sing.  AND, I wish I wouldn't have given up on the piano or Spanish.
6.  Nothing beats a homemade tortilla.
7.  I've been told I should make a career of voice overs for cartoons.
8.  A fleece and my Ugg slippers are part of my everyday at-home attire (even on some summer days).
9.  Easter season is my favorite time in the Church.
10. I would love to have more than four kids.
11. Home is my favorite place on earth.

11 questions given to me

1.  Who is your favorite saint?  Ahh, I'm just now delving more into the lives of the saints.  My confirmation saint is St. Clare.  I love the little way of St. Therese, and Teresa of Avila is a new favorite.  Can't pick just one.
2.  What time, if any, do you have to stop consuming caffeine?  I stopped drinking it when my littlest was nursing, but I love my daily decaf with loads of Creme Brulee creamer!  Oops, I think I missed the point on this one.  Mid-afternoon if I want to sleep!
3.  How often do you change your sheets?  Not as often as I should!  Maybe once a month...yikes!
4.  Show me a picture of your favorite mug.  This mug has changed my life.  Okay, maybe not, but I LOVE it!  I ordered a pair for my husband and me from a fabulous breakfast joint in Denver called Snooze.  Go there.  Order one.  You won't regret it!  Eat there, too, if you're in the area - best breakfast place ever!

5.   How do you like your eggs?  Scrambled
6.  If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?  Rome.  I have never been.
7.  Do you use pens or pencils?  Pens
8.  With five words or less, why do you love the Catholic Church?  His Real Presence
9.  Do you prefer shorts or pants to bed?  Depends on the season, but I love pants!
10.  What three websites are your biggest time wasters?  Gmail.  Blogger. Facebook.
11.  What is your favorite beverage?  I'm a water girl, but I'm loving my daily decaf right now.  And, a Sonic diet vanilla coke is hard to beat.  Can you tell I'm a decision maker?!? ;)
