The Lovely Liebster Award

One of my new blogging buddies, Kate over at My Next Life, nominated me for a Liebster Award back in April. Thank you, Kate!

** Also, Kate is running a "Win a Banner" contest! Deadline is June 6th, so hurry over and check out all the details. **

Since I've received the Liebster before, I'm going to be a rebel and instead of listing facts about myself, I'm just going to answer Kate's fun questions.... 


1) If you were an animal, what would you be? You know how they say that after awhile, people and their pets start to look alike? Yeah, well, put a pair of glasses on Mrs. Larry and....

2) What is your favorite book of all time? It's a weird tie - The Stand by Stephen King and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith. 

3) What's your biggest fear? The zombie apocalypse. I mean, seriously, have you seen me run?

4) If you could have any talent (that you don't already have), what would it be? Hmm, there are so many.... I'd go with cooking or playing an instrument.  

5) If you could invite three famous people (alive or dead) to dinner, who would you choose? I wouldn't subject anyone to my cooking. See my answer to #4.

6) If you had a time machine, where would you go first? The first thing that popped into my head was pioneer times, like maybe to Laura Ingalls Wilder's home. I have no idea why, since I would last about as long there as I would during the zombie apocalypse. 

7) If calories didn't count, what would you eat today? The cheesiest, creamiest, richest mac and cheese I could find.

8) What book do you wish you'd written? So many for so many different reasons. First one that came to mind? The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.

9) What antagonist do you most relate to? I'm going to go with the one in my current WiP which will scare the Hell out of anyone who has read some of those pages. She scares me to death but there's something about her that makes me want to write her story.  

10) If you could relive any day of your life, what would it be? The day my husband proposed. It is such a sweet, funny, romantic memory that even just thinking about it makes me smile. 

11) If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live? Pretty much where I do now, only closer to the water. Or some place closer to water. And I'd split my time between there and a villa in the Italian countryside. 

I know a lot of you already received the Liebster so I'm not going to pass it on, but I would love it if you'd answer any or all of Kate's questions in the comments. Come on, I can't be the only one who wants to eat magically calorie free mac and cheese before the zombies arrive....

  1. Congratulations on the award. The Book Thief is an amazing book, it would be on my list too - but I have a long list of books I wish I'd written!

    1. Thank you! I know what you mean about the list. TBT is the first one that popped into my head - interesting, since I haven't read it in awhile but it has obviously stayed with me all this time. Hmm, maybe a sign I need to re-read it? :)

  2. For a talent I would pick playing an instrument too. The only good thing about cooking well is the end result ;)

    1. The end result, yes, and then having someone to do the clean up part. :)

  4. Hopefully you don't really look like Mrs. Larry!
    My guilt-free calories would be pizza and lots of it.

    1. I don't know, Mrs. L is quite attractive.... :)

      And pizza was a definite runner up.

  5. I have to agree with the Mac and Cheese. I could eat it everyday. I would love to have a cottage a few blocks from the beach to spend a few months per week in and then live in the mountains the other parts of the year.

    1. I wouldn't mind trying out the mountains a bit. :)

  6. Congrats on the award.

    As for the Zombie Apocalypse - have you seen THEM run?
    Seriously we could so do that whole thing!
    TWD here we come!! ;)

  7. Congratulations on your well-deserved Liebster Award my friend. Hopefully there's no zombie apocalypse anytime soon :)

  8. Mac 'n cheese, yes, absolutely. And anyone who's NOT afraid of the Zombie Apocalypse will be the FIRST one eaten. That is all.

    Wait. That's not all. I always wanted to play the piano. And if you love Shaun of the Dead as much as I do then I'm pretty sure we were separated at birth.

    1. Oh, Cathy - I tried playing the piano. When the teacher asked the class to identify the individual notes he played, I just sat there bewildered and befuddled because they all sounded pretty much the same to me.

    1. I tell you, I'm a big chicken in general but there's something about zombies that scare me on another level. I don't know why, they just do.
