Liebster Award

Judy, from My Grateful Heart nominated me for the Liebster Award. 
Thank you, Judy! It's an honor!

The Liebster Award isn’t really an award as much as it a meme,but it’s also a great way to find new blogs and make new friends! So I’m honored that Judy nominated me and I’m happy to participate. Thank you again, Judy

Here are the rules that I found:

Official Rules:

If you have been nominated for The Liebster Award AND IF YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT, write a blog post about the Liebster award in which you:

1. thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.

2. display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)

3. answer 11 questions about yourself, which will be provided to you by the person who nominated you.

4. provide 11 random facts about yourself.

5. nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 1000 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!)

6. Create a new list of questions for the blogger to answer.

7. List these rules in your post (I have the no right click script on my blog, so if you choose to accept, email me & I'll email you the rules.) Once you have written and published it, you then have to:

8. Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it!)

  1. Hi Pam! I was making the blog rounds (with a distraction here and there) and was just getting ready to come visit you when you tagged me. I loved reading your random facts and the answers to the questions. I LOVE spicy foods, so I'll eat some for you :D I hope you have a very blessed weekend my friend. Big hugs!

  2. Hi Pam! I loved your meme answers! The 70's is also my favorite decade. I guess it's my coming of age decade - things seemed so much more innocent then & simple. The advice your parents gave you, is the advice I got too. Parents are wise! I could also watch 'You've Got Mail' everyday. I love that movie! So glad that you finally discovered coffee. As you know, I'm a coffee fanatic. :) I love candles you & I have a lot in common! This was a fun 'getting to know you' meme. I really enjoyed it. Have a great weekend Pam. Hugs!

  3. Hi Pam, I also nominated Annie. So you just discovered coffee? I like it with the many cool creamers out there like Mexican chocolate and Almond Joy. Have a great weekend. Hugs

  4. I enjoyed reading your answers. I was also nominated but if I do it, I have no idea who I would nominate 'cause everyone I know is already nominated!! Maybe I'll just do it in an abbreviated sense. I sing along with music in the car too. People observing me might think I'm a bit peculiar. Have a great day.

  5. Hi Pam! I'm soooo glad that Judy nominated you! I've enjoyed learning a lot of new things about you! I didn't know that about you and candles! The next time I make candles, I will make you some and send them to you. :) Do you have an particular scent that you enjoy the most? Hope you're healing well, my friend! Have a blessed Saturday! Hugs

  6. Oh Kim, you are so sweet! I love the "homey" scents, like vanilla, gingerbread, cinnamon, etc. I also love the autumn scents. :) That is so cool you make candles!!

    1. I don't make them as often as I like but I will break out the supplies and make some for you! I'll let you know when I get them made! :)

  7. I will join in this week Pam. Kim nominated me as well so I will incorporate the two into one post.
