Liebster Award

I have been tagged for a Liebster award! In fact…I was tagged twice. First by Tatiana over at The Dubious Hausfrau (that’s German for housewife), and then by Ashley at This Ashley Bee. Thank you ladies! Definitely a fun reason to get something up here in this poor, neglected space.

Liebster means “dearest” in German and the award is given by bloggers to bloggers. Spreading some blog love to the blogs you love to read.  Nominees answer the 11 questions in the post that nominated them and then will leave 11 more questions for their own nominees to answer. Get it? Easy peasy.

Here we go…

  1. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?

Answering yes to this question would imply that I wear shoes with laces. I usually don’t. Love my flip flops, birks, Toms, boots… basically anything and everything without laces! However, when I run…I am good to my running shoes and yes; I untie them when they come off.

2. What is the farthest you have been from home?

I had to find an online calculator to tell me this one. It’s close but Mexico wins out. Tulum, Mexico is just over 4,500kms away, while Honolulu is a bit closer at 4,300kms.

3. What was the last thing you ate?

My lunch; a big plate of raw veggies, turkey pepperoni , cheese, crackers, and a hardboiled egg.

4. If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?

Red! Always red.

5. Mountain hideaway or beach house?

Beach house. Hands down. I have an aversion to cold weather. Living in Alberta for 3 years was an intense climate shock to my system. I can still feel that dry, bone chilling cold. Never again!

6. Favourite sound?

My kids laughing. (Awwww).

7. Were you named after anyone? Is anyone named after you?

No and no. My mom always wanted a daughter named Tammy Lynn. I am the first born daughter, so that was that!

8. If you found $10 in your pocket, what would you spend it on?

I had to think about the answer to this for a while. I still don’t know. I’d like to say I’d spend it on something frivolous like a fancy coffee, but I’ve cut down on those lately. It would likely goes towards groceries or gas for the car. (boring!).

9. Do you collect anything?

Do grey hairs count? Seriously…was not something I wanted to collect at this age! Willingly though, no collections over here. I hate clutter.

10. Do you have any bad habits?

I sometimes (okay, too often) stay up way later than I should at night, cutting into my precious beauty rest. It does me no good, and I LOVE my sleep. I really don’t know why I do it.

11. Do you have any hidden talents?

I have very dexterous toes (you said weird talent, right?). I don’t have any talents that will make me rich, but my toes are almost like a second set of hands! Comes in handy (haha) sometimes :p

About Tammy

I am a single mother to 2 wonderful children, ages 1 and 5. My youngest was surprisingly born with a rare genetic condition, achondroplasia, which is a type of dwarfism. This blog is a glimpse into my crazy life as I wade through figuring out dwarfism and divorce while enjoying every second of my deficient domestic bliss.
