Fe was SO kind to nominate me for the Liebster Blog Award!!
I’m totally taking it to be a blogging happiness type thing!
Seriously, the idea behind it is awesome.
So thanks again Fe!!
(and you’re totally in my blogroll now!)
Let’s dive into this, shall we?
First, the rules:
1. Post eleven facts about yourself.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you and create
eleven questions for people you’ve nominated.
3.Choose eleven people (with fewer than 200 followers)
to give this award to and link them in your post.
(I cheated here and just did 5… I cite the pirate code!)
4. Go to their page and tell them.
5. Remember, no tag backs.
11 Facts about me
one// I am totally and completely in love with my husband. And I really do mean that. I cannot imagine my life without him!!
two// I was in rabbit club for 4-H as a kid.
three// I have NEVER been able to touch my toes. At least not that I can remember!
four// I was mistaken as Zach Hanson in middle school. Not as fun as that sounds.
five// I go into convulses when I hear anything by def leppard thanks to an ex who was obsessed with them.
six// Even after nearly four years of being married, I STILL have a problem with recipes and not making too much for JP and I.
seven// My first pet was a hamster named Nelly when I was four. There were two more hamsters named “Nelly” after her. Ask my mom, it was a complicated mess 😉

nine// My goal one day is to live mostly-off, if not off the grid.
ten// My favorite smells are clean wet dirt, forests after a rain, mountain air, roses, and JP’s cologne 😉
eleven// I’m tone-deaf. I took music appreciation in college to “expand my horizons”… yeah, I barely squeaked by with a “C” since I couldn’t tell if something was major or minor or sharp or flat by ear for the life of me!
one// What is your dream car?
a 1950’s Thunderbird convertible with the removable hard top.
candy apply red and chrome please!
two// What is the fastest you have driven a car?
lame as it sounds, my Jetta, but since it’s a German car that
counts for something, right?

yes, I LOVE birds of prey and would love to work with them someday.
four// What is your Favorite Book?
Oh hard one! I’d probably have to go with the Complete Works of Shakespeare.

I like folk because in so many ways it just speaks to the soul.

Shatner hands down. Then Lyle Lovett and Tom Waits.
If you’re including dead guys, Gregory Peck!
seven// Who is your hero?
eight// What has been your greatest struggle?
lately it’s been getting over losing our last pregnancy.
finally (mostly) past the depression stage, though there are rough days.
nine// How did you decide to begin blogging?
I fell into it in high school, then have been going at it off and
on for YEARS. It was another way for me to journal,
though in a much more public way. I started
It’s a Geek Life after JP and I got married
because I missed blogging, and as a way for our families
to keep up with our adventures.

GREEN! and earthy tones or black.
