Liebster Award

Thank you to It's Me Ethan for nominating Crazy Cakes and Eskimo Kisses for a Liebster Award -- to recognize, promote and welcome relatively new bloggers into the blogging community.

As part of the rules, I have to answer the following 11 questions about myself.  Hold on; it's gonna be a bumpy ride.

1- Tell me a joke which always makes you smile!
Anything followed by "that's what she said."
2- Why are you blogging?
I started blogging to help myself accept the frightening medical issues my youngest child was facing at the time.  Eventually, I transitioned into writing about my experiences as a mom and as a mom of a child with special needs.
3-Coke or Pepsi?
I pick sparkling water.  Can I do that? Or is this one of those "these-are-the-only-two-drinks-left-on-the-face-of-the-earth-so-you-must-pick-or-perish" questions?  If it's the latter, I will drink whatever.  I just want to live.
4-Nastiest / nicest comment ever left on one of your blogs?
Probably something sweet my mom wrote.  She tries to keep it hush-hush on my blog that she is my mom. Wait...I just realized that may be a bad thing.  I don't think my mom wants the blogging world to know she is my mom.  What?!  #herloss
5- Dog or cat– there’s no both !
Dog. Cats creep me out. I once had a cat who would put her nose up to my face at night. My mom said it was to make sure I was still breathing.  Seriously?! What was the cat's plan if I wasn't breathing? Kitty CPR? I'll pass.
6- Is blogging the same as being a writer?
Sure. You put your words, heart, soul, thoughts, ideals, wins, losses, and pain out there for everyone to read. But you don't get paid, and usually get death threats or date requests in the Yahoo comments section. On second thought, it is probably nothing like being a writer.
7- Name your childhood music crush!
8- Have you ever been on TV, if so, what for?

Blush. Twist my arm.  Force it out of me. Okay, okay, okay...I was in a commercial for Ben Franklin's -- shopping for Vera Bradley purses.  And, once I was on the news.  They showed me walking out of the school building with a colleague after we all found out we were losing our jobs.  Nothing quite like having your phone flood with 472892475 text messages all saying: "Hey! So cool to see you on the news. Sorry about your job."
9- What could you not live without? (Leave the hubby/wife/ gf etc & kids out of it!)

I could not live without reality TV and ice cream.
10- If they were to make a movie of your life – what would it be called?

"If You Give a Girl a Credit Card"
11- Are you delighted I nominated you?!

Yes! Totally! For sure!  Someone else nominate me for something: Best Neighbor Award, Stellar Educator, Queen. Yep, let's go with Queen.
