The Liebster Award

So, Lily at Lily's Notes in the margins nominated me for the Liebster Award a few weeks ago. Thanks Lily! :) Here are the rules.

Thank and link back to the person who nominated you. 
List 11 facts about yourself.
Answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger who nominated you.
Nominate 9 bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers.
Ask them 11 questions.
Let them know about the nomination.

1. I'm a Mormon.
2. I'm slightly addicted to earlvin14's mashups on Youtube.
3. I have a little sister who is almost two and a half years younger than me.
4. I love In-N-Out.
5. Lindsey Stirling had a concert in a city near me last month and I'm really sad because she was sold out and i couldn't go.
6. But I have been to an Imagine Dragons concert.
7. I play piano, recorder, dulcimer, glockenspiel, drums, guitar, and bass. I can also sing(but not all that well). My family is very musical.
8. We also have two cats, and I loveth them.
9. A new character showed up in my WIP a few weeks ago, and I couldn't get rid of him if I wanted(which i don't). I'm just not sure how he fits into the pre-arranged scheme of things.
10. I'm having a hard time thinking of facts about me.
11. I have blue eyes.

Wow that was hard. Now for Nessie's questions.

1. If you could have any super power, what would it be?  This question always used to stump me. Now I'm pretty sure that I would want to be able to fly. Seriously, how cool would that be?!
2. What is a job you have absolutely no interest in having?  A banker. Dealing with numbers and math all day? Just… *shivers* no. Or the people that have to prepare dead bodies? No way.
3. You are a character in the last book you read. Who are you? Mimi Langlander from Key to Rondo. (Please tell me I'm not the only person who's read that. One of the best-written books ever.)
4. If you could be a side character in any book ever, which would you choose?  What counts as side character? Well, probably Marta from Jessica Day George's Dragon Slippers series. Love her sass and bravery.
5. If you found buried treasure, what would you do with it?  I would probably tell the authorities, as long as they promised that I could keep a lot of it.
6. What is your favorite smell?   THIS IS HARD. 1. In-N-Out. The restaurant smells so amazing.  2. Balance essential oil by doTERRA. I could smell it all day. Speaking of…..I'll be right back.
7. You are suddenly given the opportunity and power to dictate that one item of clothing or accessory is popular. What do you choose?  TUTUS. NOT JUST FOR LITTLE KIDS. That would be so amazing. I would totally wear a bright red tutu with spiky combat boots. *sigh*
8. If you had the ability to transform into any animal you wanted, which would you choose?  Probably a falcon or eagle or some other bird of prey. (I want to fly; can you tell?)
9. What are some of your favorite words?  ALL OF THEM. Jk. I love words so this is also hard. Discombobulate, eradicate, effervescent, vivacious, imagine, hobbit...     
10. Have you ever broken a bone?  Yes. I broke my right arm when I was ten. I was riding my scooter with my sister, and then suddenly I was on the ground and my arm and face hurt. (My mom says I'm lucky that I didn't break my nose as well.)
11. What's a song or piece of music you really like right now?  Nocturne by Celtic Woman. PLOT BUNNIES GALORE.

My questions:
1. Who is your favorite author?
2. Favorite TV show?
3. What's one kind of music you can't stand?
4. If you could date one fictional character, who would it be?
5. One author (living or dead) you wish you could meet?
6. Favorite blogger?
7. What is a weird dream you have had?
8. What fictional world would you most like to live in?
9. Favorite soda?
10. Celebrity crush(come on, everybody has one)?
11. What saying would you want on your gravestone?

I hereby nominate Stacia. And anyone else if you want it. 


  1. Hmm, my comment seems to have disappeared. Let's try again, shall we?

    FLYING YES. ME TOO. Same with turning into a bird of some sort. Tutus would be awesome. Wouldn't want to be a banker, either. Love your word choices, and CELTIC WOMAN YES. I too broke my right arm when I was ten. Bike accident.

    Great post!

    1. We seem to be very similar.
      Thanks for the nomination, and thanks for commenting!
