Leapin’ Liebster!

Lookie lookie, I got an award! 😀

Liebster Award

But don’t let it fool ya…I’m a bad blogger.

You see, over the past few months, this fun little prize has been making its way around blogworld and I have been nominated not one, not two…but NINE TIMES!

See? Told ya…bad blogger!

The rules:
Write 11 random facts about yourself
Answer 11 questions given by the person who nominated you
Ask 11 questions for your nominees
Nominate 11 people for the award and mention them in your post

As much as I’d love to follow all the rules, that would just be too mammoth of a post to bore you guys with. So I figured I’d just be a little rebel and make my own rules it up as I went along…

So since my tree is STILL up (#noshame), how about I start with the nominations that were given around Christmas? And in honor of my lucky number, I’ll answer 7 of each 11 questions:

First up, from Renee at Fit for Motherhood:

1. What is your favorite breakfast?

Pancake CollageOk, that one’s easy…PANCAKES!

2. Do you prefer to workout at home or at the gym?
I used to go on and on about how you don’t need a gym membership to get a
good workout at home, but I have to confess that since I joined the Y, I don’t really have as much motivation to do anything at home…unless I’m cleaning…that counts right? 😉

3. What would your last meal be?
Ohhh, that’s a toughie…how many courses are we talking here? Because if it’s my LAST meal, then I better damn sure get more than one!

Let’s see…I think I’d like to start out with some Ethiopian finger foods and a couple of Scotch eggs…for my main course, I’d like a slice of pizza the size of my face COVERED with cheese and all my favorite toppings…and as far as dessert, there will be NO holding me back at the self-serve fro-yo shop…bring on the SPRINKLES!

4. What is your favorite Christmas/holiday tradition?
My family doesn’t really have many holiday traditions but we ALWAYS get to open one gift on Christmas Eve and we ALWAYS know what it will be…

5. Do you own any pets?


Yep yep! My little love muffin (Tiger) has been with me for over SEVEN years now!

6. If you could be anything in the world what would it be?
A superhero…who could fly…and save people with healing pancakes! Hey, you DID said ANYTHING! 😉

7. What made you decide to start blogging?
I started blogging only a few months after I discovered food blogs. I was seeing all these girls posting pictures of creative food combinations and recipes and all of a sudden I had so much motivation to just jump in the kitchen and do the same! Once I realized that I actually COULD cook (I had only really dabbled before and NEVER strayed from a recipe), I had so many ideas that I couldn’t wait to share!

Next up, from Nikki at The Road to Less Cake:

1. What is your favourite Christmas movie?

Christmas Story [Extended] - Front (Large)


A Christmas Story…always has been…always will be!

2. What did you want to be when you “grew up”?
Well, for the longest time I wanted to be a teacher…then I realized that I hated kids (not all kids, just other people’s ;)) so I changed my mind and decided I was going to be a veterinarian…until I got a chance to job shadow at a vet clinic in high school and almost passed out during a cat spay! Oops?

3. What is your favourite book?
Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers

4. Would you rather go to the movies or sit in with a DVD?
I’m definitely a DVD kind of girl…I like to curl up on the couch with my blanket…movie theaters are just TOO cold!

5. What is your favourite work out/form of exercise?

Weight Lifting


6. What is your job/what are you studying?
I work nights as a CAT scan technologist at the hospital here in town…

cat-scan-ur-doin-it-wrongYou know, I get paid to scan cats all day! 😉

7. What is your favourite fruit and favourite vegetable?

Persimmon & Kabocha

And finally, from Kyra at Scribbles and Sprinkles:

1. What is your most hated food ever?
Greasy fast food…and I have (tummy) proof that it hates me too!

2. Favourite music genre?
Music Collage
I really like listening to a wide variety of music, but I guess most of my iTunes library is filled with alternative and punk.

3. Are you a morning or a night person?
Night…kind of a requirement when you lead a zombie life!

4. If you were to give a pep talk to your 13-year-old self, what would you say?
It gets better…it gets SOOOOO much better! I promise you will EVENTUALLY get boobs… you will not ALWAYS be a foot taller than all the boys…and dance to the MACARENA all you want…because it will never be socially acceptable (unless your drunk) later!

5. How many languages do you speak?
1.257658768 (muy poquito Espanol) 😉

6. What makes Christmas Christmas?

Christmas Memories 2012Being with family…sharing memories…and bonding in our collective craziness.

7. What do you see yourself doing in five years?
Well, I hope that maybe can have a little not-of-the-furball-kind family started…and HOPEFULLY I will have discovered a way to quit my job and do nothing but cook and blog all day long! 😉

Whew, that was LONG but FUN!

Stay tuned for two more installments in the (hopefully) near future!

What would YOU tell your 13 year old self?

What would YOUR last meal be?
