Let’s take a break from IF/loss shit and enjoy my Liebster Blog Award

Catching up from the goings on before my disappearing act reminded me of this!

Mommy Someday (Jennifer) at Waiting for Baby was nice enough to nominate me!

This award is granted to up-and-coming bloggers with fewer than 200 followers who deserve some recognition and support to keep on blogging.

The instructions are:

1) to answers the 11 questions written by your nominator.
2) to nominate 11 other bloggers who have less than 200 followers.
3) to write 11 of your own questions for each nominee to answer.

Here are my questions to answer:

1. Which family member are you closest to? Tell us about your relationship with that person.

My grandma – I live about 4-5 min away if driving and about 20 mins walking. She is amazing. Sweet, loving, independent and strong. I’m probably closer to her than my own mom!

2. Why did you start blogging?

Izzy told me how supportive, understanding and INTELLIGENT her blogging community is and strongly urged me to start. Thank god I listened to her.

3. How did you pick your blog name?

Ummm…I like the whole “stork” thing and I am a mom to 3 dogs. 🙂

4. What was your first car?

To drive?  Toyota corolla

I bought on my own? Toyota corolla 🙂

5. If infertility was not an issue, how many children would you like to have?

FOUR!! And here’s my logic. My sister and I are SO different and have a really difficult relationship. With 4 kids, ALL of my children should find at least one sibling they can connect and get along with! 🙂

6. Who was your favorite elementary school teacher?

Mr. Kilty. Funny yet no-nonsense. He made me want to learn and do my best.

7. What did you enjoy most about high school or college?

I loved my major and having my eyes opened. I went to school late and graduated in 2010 so I didn’t have the “normal” college experience, unfortunately. I’m really not a nerd. 😉

8. What is in your purse right now?

TOO MUCH stuff! Wallet, Breaking Dawn Pt. II ticket stub, makeup, pantyliners, zantac (to prevent the redness when I drink alcohol), a shitload of gift cards (I pulled them out of my wallet and left them sitting in my purse), 3 different types of dessert gums lol, change, pens, 3 check stubs (I get paid monthly), a couple of expired coupons and more crap.

9. What was the last pair of shoes you purchased?

brown riding boots 🙂

10. If cost was not an issue, where would you go on vacation?

a Mediterranian (sp?) cruise

11. Did you vote in the last election? Will you be voting next week?

I did and I did. ALWAYS exercise your right to vote people!!!!

  1. Great answers and even better questions! Is it weird that I wouldn’t think to answer anything IF related to your lottery question? I believe I have answered a similar question on a writing prompt and IF stuff never occurs to me. I always think of a new house, new car, go on a trip (or many) with my husband, etc. I don’t think, “Hey, now I could afford IVF.” 😛

    • hahaha no it’s just that my hubby and worry allll the time about maybe having to do IVF and knowing we wouldn’t be able to afford it..so that’s the first thing we think of. 😉

  2. Thanks gorgeous! As I’m one of five kids you’re spot on with the sibling theory! Had my parents stopped at me I would not have been besties with my sis and would never have had my awesome brothers! Love my sis a great deal but we’re very different.
