Liebster Award – Well-Groomed Home has been nominated!

To my surprise, my brand-new blog has been nominated by Pearls + Girls for a

Like Katie at Pearls + Girls , I had no idea that this even existed and after really only getting attention from family and friends it feels nice to be “noticed”. Basically the Liebster Award is an award for new bloggers and it’s given to bloggers by bloggers…a way of paying it forward. I couldn’t be more flattered and I am so excited to accept this award.

Liebster Award Rules:1. Thank the blogger who presented you with the Liebster Award, and link back to his or her blog.2. Answer the questions from the nominator; list 11 random facts about yourself, and create 11 questions for your nominees.

3. Present the Liebster Award to several other bloggers, who have blogs with 200 followers or less, whom you feel deserve to be noticed. Leave a comment on the blogs letting the owners know they have been chosen. (No tag backs.)

4. Upload the Liebster Award image to your blog.

Note: As stated by Lorraine on her blog –  The choice lies within each of us to accept it, and continue paying it forward. It is said that the Liebster award was created to recognize and/or discover new bloggers and welcome them to the blogosphere. In the digital world of the internet, this seems like a nice gesture, in my opinion!

Therefore, I am honored to accept Katie’s nomination for the Liebster Award and answer her questions (as I feel the urge to wave like a pageant queen in my living room, lol):
1.  Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Oh definitely a night owl…my hours are always turned upside down.
2.  Why did you decide to start a blog?
I have a passion for all things organized, creative, and artsy.  It’s my dream to someday have my own organizing business.
3.  Do you have any pets?
Oh yes!  Let’s see…fish (koi, goldfish, loaches, pleco), a toy poodle who is my baby, a German Shepherd mix, and a huge maine coon cat.
4.  What is your ‘go to’ recipe for a quick weeknight dinner?
Take-out. I’m keeping it real.
5.  If given a choice, would you read a book or watch a movie?
I doubt my fiance would let me choose, but a movie would probably win that war. lol
6.  What is your favorite holiday?
I say this with all caution: Halloween…only because as a kid I loved to dress up and the more elaborate the costume the better!
7.  Are you an introvert, an extrovert or a little of both?
Eh, a little of both really.  If I like someone or a group of people I can’t get tired of them, but with others sometimes 5 minutes seems like forever.
8.  What was your favorite food as a child?
Chocolate ice cream with oreos and chocolate syrup every day after school until 10th grade.  Shockingly though I was always underweight for my height. 🙂
9.  You’ve been invited to a holiday party.  What gift would you bring for the hostess?
Definitely something I made or altered in some DIY sort of way.
10.  What was the last thing you cooked/baked for your family?

Key lime pie and green bean casserole for Thanksgiving.

Random facts about me:

1. I am at least 1/8th Cherokee, but can’t prove it legally. 🙁
2. I am a poodle lover and compared to poodles other dogs just can’t compete.
3. I can sing, but I won’t.
4. I have a horrible habit of biting my nails.
5. I love new Sharpie markers.
6. I can’t stand it when I lose something.
7. I am slightly neurotic when it comes to cleaning and organizing and I can tell if anyone has moved something out of place.
8. I love Starbucks frappuccino and granola bars. It’s like my candy.
9. I don’t like to cook but I can if I try.
10.  I am an only child.
11. I can’t see ten feet in front of my face without contact lenses and glasses make me dizzy.

Now it’s my turn to nominate other newbie bloggers 🙂  Here are my top picks:

A Prudent Life
Add Some Character
A Merry Mom
Addicted 2 DIY
Home Hearted
Now Add Sugar
Every Home is a Castle
Far From Normal
Life in Velvet

…and here are your questions:

1. If you didn’t blog what would you do with all your spare time?
2. Cat or dog person?  Or both?
3.  What is your most prized possession?
4. What is your most favorite post you have written (please link)?
5. Describe yourself in three words.
6. What is one skill or hobby you have that is totally opposite from blogging?
7. What do you love / hate about social media?
8. What are your future plans or goals for blogging?
9. Who is your biggest influence?
10. Laptop or desktop? Mac or PC?
11. If you could have any super power what would you choose?

Thanks again to Katie at Pearls + Girls  for nominating me!

  1. Hey Amanda, thank you so much for this, it seriously made our week! I just wanted to let you know that we finally got to post our Liebster award post today!

    Best of luck to you and keep it up! Can’t wait to see what you’ve got up your sleeve next.

  2. I never noticed until this week that you tagged my website in this post! Thank you, I was thrilled to nominate your blog! Best of luck to you on your blog, I saw you linked up with Life in Velvet, love Angela’s blog as well! 🙂 I also cannot stand it when I lose something…it’s like I’m a frustrated toddler as I frantically search and rant lol. Have a great weekend! Happy Blogging!!!

  3. Hi! I am leaving this comment because I would like for you to update your Liebster Award post with the correct link. I am going to be deleting my old site (Lorraine Reguly’s Life) and so would really appreciate it if you could update your post with a link to Wording Well. This is my new site, and because I have moved my “old” post to my “new” site, you will be left with a broken link if you don’t change it. I don’t want this to happen! Besides, is still the same post it always was, but the domain name has changed. This may not seem like a big deal to you, but it is to me. The internet is forever – or at least until we change things, so, please, can you change this for me? (Thanks!)
