Well, GeezLoueeze.

What a nice surprise!  I've been Liebstered! 

"Liebster" is a German word meaning dear, sweet, kind, nice, good, beloved, lovely, kindly, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.  (Who?  Where?  What?  Me?)
The Liebster is awarded to spotlight up and coming bloggers who currently have less than 200 followers.  I think that less than 200 is a nice number - there is still a slim possibility that I could invite you all over and cram you into my small house and give you all a cup of tea.  And make you help me with chores.  Kidding.  One of those sweet followers has put me up for this wonderful award - Broken Farm Road!
Of course, this award comes with its "do-not-celebrate-until-you've":
1.  Thanked the awarder (Ms. BrokenFarmRoad) - Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the nice things you said.  Same back atcha, except for the farming alone thing, but, then, it's nicer to have a partner in all this nonsense, isn't it?
2.  Revealed my top five picks of bloggers to be Liebsterized:

     * Apple Pie Gal.  How could I NOT Liebsterize her?  She is the epitome of Liebsterism.  I want her at my side if the going gets rough, I tell you.  And not JUST because of her pink rifle.
     * Nancy at Babbelot.  She has the most positive attitude I have ever come across - I read her blog for the lift it brings.
     * Chicken Mama - her life leaves me breathless!  And she is the bee's knees.  And, well, heck, we ALL love Chicken Mama.
     * Erin at garden now - think later - and her life leaves me beyond breathless!  I am always all fired up to get things in order and get things done after I've read her posts.  Even her "nuthing much going on" posts (hahahaha).
     * Larkspur Funny Farm - She shares the joys and sorrows of running a fiber flock farm in such an honest and yet humorous way, that I find myself feeling that I'm right there.  And that fiber!
3.  Copied and pasted the award on my blog (see top right corner, pleeze)
4.  Had faith that my followers will spread the love to other bloggers - not only do I have faith in my followers - they are waaaay ahead of me in that sense and most others!
5.  And most of all, have fun!  And that I do, 99.9% of the time.  The most fun I have is following y'all's blogs!


  1. Congratulations! What a great idea for an award. Great choices to pass it on to.

  2. Dagnabit! I would have picked YOU! You deserve this my dear and you are sweet to think of me. I got this earlier this week and haven't done it yet-my Dad's Vietnam thing and all. So I promise when I can I will pass it along! That's ok cuz I will still share the "why" I would have picked you in the intro. So you'll get outed again :o)

  3. Leigh - It's hard to limit my favs to five. The one thing I do like about these awards (other than receiving one!) is that it leads you to all kinds of great blogs.

    APG - Dagnabit! Beat ya! Will you be blogging about your dad's event? And everything else? We hope...

  4. Well, thank you, thank you! I'm glad someone's listening out there LOL! It's always hard for me to pick other bloggers since everyone I choose to read is awesome!

  5. I LOVE your blog. And I know you're busy - but we miss you...xoxoxo
