I was so excited to see that Fae of Fae’s Twist and Tango nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award! It’s such a great feeling to know that my blog is being read and appreciated. Thank you, thank you. I figured I might as well pass on that good feeling by nominating 11 bloggers of my own choosing, as well as answering the 11 questions given to me by Fae.
My Answers to the 11 Questions:
1. What inspires you? As far as my blog goes…family, friends, other bloggers, random recipes I see on magazine covers in the grocery store line. Not necessarily in that order.
2. What is your favorite dessert? Boy, that’s a tough one….but quite possibly Andes Mint ice cream cake. Yes, a pre-packaged sin for a baking blogger!
3. What is your favorite comedy? The Office!
4. When you were a child, what did you want to be when your grew up? Ironically enough, I’ve wanted to be a baker since I was about 5.
5. Why did you start a blog? I wanted to create a place to play around with writing, develop a voice, and keep track of all the recipes I try.
6. What is your favorite part of blogging? I love the feeling of accomplishment I get every time I publish another post, and the knowledge that I’m creating something totally unique.
7. What would be the name of your ‘reality show’ to describe your life? Honestly…no idea.
8. If you were to give a speech on any topic, what would it be? Probably something environmental…
9. If you changed your name, what would you change it to? I wouldn’t change my name!
10. What is your dream career? Something in the field of writing …or maybe a child psychologist.
11. If money was no object, where would you live and why? I’d have two houses! One in the northwest, on the Pacific Ocean, and the other near my hometown in Colorado.
