What's a Liebster?


The talented and adorable Jessica Freeburg surprised me with a Liebster the other day. Thanks, Jess! I still don't know what the heck a Liebster is, but it was super nice of Jessica to honor me with one. So, what I need to do is post 11 random facts about myself, answer the 11 questions that Jessica asked me, then nominate 11 blogs for zee Liebster. Here goes...

Eleven Random Nina Facts:

1)  I didn't have a middle name until I got married.
2)  Can't wait for season 3 of Downton Abbey to begin.
3)  My first car was a 1980 Plymouth Champ.
4)  My blood type is O negative.
5)  I haven't ever traveled outside of the United States.
6)  Cooking isn't my favorite, but I love to bake!
7)  If I had superpowers, I'd love to be able to fly and talk to animals.
8)  Last concert I attended: Jeremy Messersmith.
9)  I don't care for fancy herbal teas.
10) Still hope to have my own horse someday.
11) I collected postage stamps when I was a kid.

Eleven Questions from Jessica:

     A jockey, a marine biologist, and/or a veterinarian.
2) Who was your celebrity crush as a kid?
     Luke Skywalker
3) Favorite movie?

4) Favorite book/author/illustrator?
     Owl at Home, written and illustrated by Arnold Lobel
5) Do you believe in ghosts? Why or why not?
     I think I do, but haven't ever met one. We had a lot of forks go missing at our old house...
6) What is your stupid human trick?
     Making up an endless stream of puns.
7) If you could go back in time and tell your teenage self one thing, what would it be?
     Don't take Mom's grocery-getter for your driving test, you'll knock down cones and fail!
8) Most embarrassing moment?
     I have a few, but they don't bear repeating...
9) What’s the one thing you’d most like to be remembered for when you’re gone (you know, dead…sorry, kind of morbid, but it’s a deep thought kind of question).
     I think it would just be nice to be remembered at all...
10) Do you talk to yourself (out loud, when no one else is around)?
     Yes. Most commonly heard saying, "Ah, whoops!"
11) What is your favorite guilty pleasure?
     Cheetos and Dr. Pepper.
