Leibster Award

I was nomintated for a "Liebster Award." This is for blogs with 200 or fewer followers.

Thank you Cheri from Idle Chatter for the nomination! I am glad you see something on my blog that you like.

This award has a "get-acquainted" aspect and a "pay it forward" aspect.

It all seems to based on elevens. Why elevens? I don't know, but it's great for me, because I can nominate all the other women in my comment circle. They all have great blogs, and I wouldn't want to have to choose.

So first the rules. Nothing works without rules. There are only six, not eleven, but who wants too many, anyway?

{1} Each blogger should answer the questions the tagger has set for you.
{2} Choose 11 new bloggers to pass the award on to and link them in your post.
{3} Create 11 new questions for the chosen bloggers.
{4} Tell them about the award.
{5} Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.
{6} No tag-backs!!

Now the questions Cheri asked. with my answers:
  1. Do you like amusement park rides? Yes I do! Roller coasters, especially.
  2. What’s your pet peeve? Telemarketers who hang up on you when you ask to be taken off the calling list.
  3. If there was a movie about your life, who would you want to play you? I really don't know. Suggestions, anyone?
  4. Last movie you saw at the theater? Oz the Great and Powerful
  5. Morning person or night owl? Absolutely a night owl
  6. What song makes you cry?  None, I think.
  7. Realist or dreamer?  Sort of both.
  8. Believe in love at first sight?  Yes.
  9. Do you play the lottery?  No.
  10. Beach or mountains?  Beach.
  11. If you could have one super power, what would it be? Super speed, so I can get more done.

Dana, Soul Fit Women
Lynn, Lynn Spiro and Company
