Liebster Award Winner!!!

Aw shucks!  I was chosen for the Liebster Award from Liz at Just Dip It in Chocolate!  Thank you so much.  I am giving you my biggest smile and dainty little curtsy while wearing my evening gown.  I thank each and every one of you for stopping by my blog and giving my encouragement!  

What is the Liebster Award you ask?  It's given by bloggers to fellow bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers.  The rules are simple and fun. 

1) Each blogger should answer the questions the tagger has set for you.  
2) Choose 11 new bloggers to pass the award on to and link them in your post.
3) Create 11 new questions for the chosen bloggers.
4) Go back to their page and tell them about the award.
5) Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.
6) No Tag Backs!!!

My questions from Liz:

I love the feedback after sharing a post!
2) What is your all time favorite movie?
I'm almost embarrassed to say this, but Grease
3) Are you a coffee or tea person?
This is tough.  I drink coffee every morning, but I really love a good glass of tea!
4) Looking back, which was the best year of your life so far?
How do you choose this without offending anyone?  The year I married my husband, 1989.  And, 2000 was an awesome year for our family!
5) Beach house or mountain cabin?
Today I choose beach house, because it's snowing and I'm a bit sick of it!
6) Have you ever visited another country other than the one you live in?  Which one did you love the most?
I have traveled outside the US and I loved Switzerland.
7) Do you know when to stop talking when you argue or do you go on and on like the Energizer Bunny?
I normally just keep going, but would really love the off switch some days.
8) Favorite music era and genre?
I love 80s music, all of it except the heavy metal stuff.
9) If you had to pick a super power what would it be?
Teleportation.  So I could pop in on anyone, anywhere!
10) When was the last time you ate fast food?  What was it?
What's your idea of fast food?  I don't eat it at all, but I guess in January we had McDonald's for a hangover, just hashbrowns for me.
11) First or last person to get a joke?
Depends on the joke and if I'm paying attention, but I always get it before Chip!
