Liebster Award!

I interrupt my regularly scheduled Thrifting Thursday post to share what I woke to yesterday morning.  

I was nominated for a "LIEBSTER AWARD" by the lovely and talented 
blog it was so very kind of her to nominate me for a this. Thank you so much for the honor!

Apparently this type of award helps bring awareness to blogs with less than 3,000 followers through a chain-mail-like-Q&A-blog-hop-style scenario. 

So here are the get to know me questions that Hope asked:
1. What is your nickname?  That's a tough one. Way back in high school I was called 'Tush' [pronounced with the short u sound~ short for my maiden name Tusher
There was a popular ZZ Top song around that time too called "Tush" >]
Since then, Tam or Mom are then most common things....

2. What's the most important thing for you to accomplish everyday before you go to bed?
 Hmmm not really any one specific thing, but I ALWAYS load the coffee pot before I hit the hay. 

3. What are you most looking forward to this Spring? At this point...just for spring to actually arrive! Mother Nature has been a tease this year.

4. Who/what motivates you to get out of bed every morning? Motivates is a pretty strong word...My 2 boxer dogs, they need to go out and once that happens it's all she wrote.... 

5. What are five of your favorite movies? 

A. When Harry met Sally
B. Gone with the Wind
C. The Wizard of OZ
D. Sense and Sensibility
E. Pride and Prejudice

6. When you get a chance, what's your favorite way to relax?  In a lounge chair, on a warm Gulf of Mexico beach, with an icy cold beer in my hand.   

7. Where is your favorite place to eat out? Ruth's Chris Steakhouse = yum-ola

8. What's the first album you remember owning?  Love Gun by KISS  {OMG}

9. What inspires you? Spiritually, the lives of the saints. Artistically, nature and colors.  In my daily life, my husband and my children.

10. What book is closest to you at this very moment? - The Official Scrabble Players Dictionary, I'm an online Scrabble, Lexulous, Words with Friends junkie....

11. Do you collect anything? What?  Besides being a craft supply hoarder???  Yes, several things:  Nativity sets, cobalt glass, and a fridge magnet from every place we vacation, live or visit.

THERE YOU HAVE IT~ More than you probably wanted to know ~ haha!

Now on to the rest of this little pay it forward exercise:

Here are the rules for the bloggers I'm tagging:

  • Nominate 5 blogs to receive the award who have less than 3,000 followers. Create a new list of 11 questions for them.
  • Inform them of their nomination.
Now, as for who I'm tagging. . .that was the toughest part of this award. I know so many amazing bloggers that it's hard to choose just five. I chose my 5 from the blogs that have been on my mind in the past week to come up with this list of totally deserving, wonderfully awesome, lovely ladies.

I hate to leave anyone out, but I couldn't name you all. So, if you're not one of the five above and want to play along, just answer my questions and leave a link to your post in the comments.

Here are my questions:
1. The most beautiful place you've ever visited.
2. If you could invite a historical figure to dinner who would it be and why?
3. What would you serve them for dinner?
4. If you had a superpower what would it be?
5. Favorite childhood memory?

9. If you couldn't live in your home country, where would you choose to live?
10. What did you want to be when you grew up [and are you doing it]?

There you have it   Thanks so much.  
Can't wait to see how this turns out!

Warmest Regards,


  1. OMgosh, you are so sweet to nominate me, Tammie :) Somehow I missed Hope's post on Tuesday... or maybe when you follow over 450 blogs you skip a few posts now and then :( How did you get all this prepared so quickly?? I am pretty sure I was nominated for some awards way back when, but I wimped out :( So I am going to PROMISE (I use that verb ever-so-rarely) that I will keep this going... but no way that will happen in two days, Miss Speedy ;) You probably know I hate doing anything precipitously... maybe I can work that into question #11 :)

    Another thing I love about these events is how they are a source of new, interesting blogs to follow; two of your choices are new to me. And I need more blogs to follow, right?

  2. And I forgot to congratulate you, Tammie LOL.

  3. LOVED your answers. We totally have to meet one day.
    First, you have boxers!!! We don't currently have dogs (just cats a fish) but when we finally get a fence we plan on getting a boxer. It's the breed Pat and I have agreed on.
    Secondly, Austen movies. . .YES! (Have you seen Austenland yet? Cute!)
    Next, Gulf of Mexico beach. . .kindred spirits I tell you!
    How are we not Words with Friends. . .friends? Of course, I suck but I just like to play.
    Lastly, I used to collect cobalt glass and still have lots scattered about and I also try to get a magnet for the fridge when we travel.
    Again, I loved, loved, loved learning more about you!
    Thanks so much for playing along. :)
