Nominated for the Liebster Award

I was so surprised and thrilled to get a comment from  Kim at
 Kim at Colors Mixed Together that she had nominated me for a Liebster Award.

Here are the rules for receiving this award:

1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.

2. Answer the questions that the tagger set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you’ve tagged to answer.

3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.

4. Go to their page and tell them.
11 Random things about me:

 1. I am born and raised in Germany, moved to the USA at 19 years old to get married to that handsome US soldier


2. I started a Blog to motivate myself to do spend a "little less time" on PINTEREST getting all these wonderful ideas, and "more time"to actually do some of these projects and share with others who enjoy them too!


3. I love big dogs....something about those big fury guys. We have a 185 pound Newfoundland dog. And yes "drool rules" does own several bibs....He is our 3rd big dog since we've been married.


4. Mom to one 7 year old little boy. I love love love being a Mom 


5. I value great and true friendships. I love how different all my friends are in personalities and I love them all!

7. I am fluent in English and German but always wanted to speak Spanish. I spend a lot of my childhood in Spain since my dad owns a house there. I have taken Spanish classes in the past but I find that you won't ever learn another language fluently if you are not forced to speak it on a daily basis.


8.  I miss a lot of things about Europe, especially my family. However I am grateful to be living in this beautiful country.
