Liebster Blog Award!!

I met Jess, over at Our Homestead For Him,
and she has nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award!!
Thank you so much, Jess!!
I was so thrilled to get this bit of encouragement;
then wondered....WHAT is the Liebster Blog Award?
Where had I been?! I had never heard of this!!
So, I headed over to Jess's blog to see what this was all about!!

What is the Liebster Blog award?

The Liebster Blog Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have not yet hit the 200 followers mark. The award is presented by a fellow blogger as a sort of pat on the back "you've got a great thing started" type of award. 
"Liebster" is German for "favorite." This makes this a favorite blog award." 
This sure looks like this will be a fun way of getting 
to know my bloggie-friends!!

The Rules

1. List 11 facts about yourself.
2.  Answer the 11 questions given to you.
3. Create 11 new questions for the bloggers you nominate for the award.
4. Choose 11 bloggers with 200 or less followers to nominate.
5. Go to each blogger's page and let them know about the award.
6. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.

  5. Hi Judith! I'm a new follower from the Monday Meet Up hop!

    You have really lived in a lot of places, haven't you? I went to HK while I was living in Singapore. What I wouldn't give to have the opportunity to live overseas again!!

    Leaving the house with two different shoes on? Sounds like something I would do...assuming I hadn't already left without ANY shoes on. :o)

    1. Welcome Sarah...I hope you come back often :-)

      I've only lived in three countries and four states...and moved only about 20 times (that I can remember)!!

      My life has calmed down quite a bit since I wore two different shoes (how embarrassing is that?!) Those were the days that I had 5 little ones to dress and put shoes on and two slightly older ones who were supposed to be helping, lol ;-)

  6. I am so honored to be on your list of best friends! I feel the same ties of friendship to you, and I enjoyed reading more about you.

    1. And Nita, I am so honored to be your friend. You have been such a blessing!!

  7. I don't know if I could get my bum up over my head anymore, but I'm tempted to try! LOL Maybe I ought to wait till Mike gets home in case I need an ambulance or a forklift!

  8. Thank you so much for the nomination! It's wonderful to get encouragement from a blogger I very much enjoy reading. Thanks for writing and for sharing this blessing with me :)

  9. Oh my! Thank you for my award Judith :D
