Liebster Award again :)

Super excited for my number 2 Liebster Award, from Leia! She's got a adventure-filled blog and is another lady traveler, currently in Tennessee. I love reading her travel, food, and life adventures on her blog Latitude Adjustment

So this award is given to new and upcoming bloggers who want to build their audience and exposure, which is just what I'm working on these days! If you want to see Part 1, it's right here.

11 Random Facts:
1. I love world music - from African drum beats to Irish tin pipe and Andean flutes! 
2. I was in Central America 2 times, both in Costa Rica. Love that place!
3. One day I'd love to have a large garden and teach about herbal remedies.
4. Dr. Seuss(Theodore Gissel) was a genius! One favorite of mine is The Lorax.
5. I haven't shampoo'ed my hair in over a month {read about that here}
6. I feel lucky that my husband is my encyclopedia on all wonderful films :) (ok maybe not all)
7. Currently loving: almond extract and chia seeds (not together...but I should try that too!)
8. I could really go for some deep bass dub step these days. Oh, South America, can you provide this?
9. I can't wait to bring my husband to the US for his first time!
10. I'm reading a historical novel called Pope Joan. It's about a woman in the priesthood who pushed the social norms back in the day. It's really good.
11. I like insects. 

11 Questions Given:
1. What do you do to make yourself feel better after going through a hard/tough/sad situation? Make sure I've had a good cry to get it out. Remember than things are always changing is a reassuring thought. And going out in nature or being with girlfriends helps too. 

2. What are three songs you absolutely love & would listen to over & over again? 
     Enya, just so relaxing :)
     Ootischenia - The Be Good Tanyas
     The Trapeze Swinger - Iron & Wine

3. What is your idea of THEE ultimate vacation?
 That would be a day filled with nature adventure, finding a little quirky local place, and eating some delicious food. Somewhere tropical :)

4. If money & jobs weren't a factor, what's one place in the world would you live?

Maybe in a jungle of Thailand - I'm dying to explore Asia! 

5. If you had to watch one television show for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I haven't watched many shows since Boy Meets World and Sister Sister days (oh, classic 90s shows!). Actually I hardly ever watch TV. But...a friend did recently introduce me to How I Met Your Mother and I'm guiltily loving it.

6. What is something you can do really well?

I'm told I'm really good at listening. 

7. Where in the world would you NOT want to live? Why?
I don't think I'd like to live in a very isolated place for too long. Hick towns that consistent of gas stations and WalMart. To me it's important to have the aspect of community and be close to natural beauty. Plus, WalMart is just awful and I would be horrified to have to only shop there!

8. What is a craft/hobby/interest you wish you were good at?

I like this question...I'd love to learn to be skilled at card and paper making :)  

9. If you could have dinner with any 4 people, living or dead, who would they be?

I'd love to meet some of the classics: Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Ella Fitzgerald...and Savion Glover, tap idol!

10. What is the best food you have ever tasted?

Holy moly. There's such dee-licious food out there. I love love love the taste of sweet coconut curry. Pretty hard to beat.

11. What do you do with “me” time?

I love "me" time! It's when I will watch said TV show (my husband teases me about it), read, work on a project, or blast some music. 

My Questions for Others:
1. What's your middle name?
2. What's the newest blog you are excited to read?
3. What's your favorite dessert?
4. What was your best costume (Halloween or otherwise) EVER?
5. If you could speak another language what do it be? Why?
6. Your dream vacation:
7. Share one aspirations you want to complete in your life.
8. Where are you most content?
9. What song makes you really happy?
10. What song is playing now or the last song you listened to?
11. Where do you prefer: city, country, mountains, or beach? Why?

  1. I'm the same way about small towns. I'm living in one now (well, small for my standards), and while it IS a good experience and I'm glad to know what small-town life is like, it has only re-confirmed my status as a "big city girl." :-)

    AND, you are so sweet to nominate me! Sorry I didn't respond sooner, I'm a bit behind in my blog reading, and just now saw this! We're headed out of town tomorrow AM for a long weekend, but I will post with answers to your questions as soon as we get back! So excited! :-)
