Liebster Award

Many, many thanks to A Place Where I Can Be Me for nominating me!

 Here are my questions to answer:

1. What is one (or more) item on your bucket list? To visit Ireland and Scotland one day

2. If your life had a soundtrack, what songs would be on it? For the last year or so, I would say Dave Matthews "You and Me"...at least one a week J will say to me "Remember You and Me together, we can do anything."

3. What is something you've done in life that you are truly proud of? I think it's the way I've dealt with my IF, losses, and all we've gone through. We started our marriage off trying to start a family, so IF has always been a part of us. I am truly proud of how we've handled it and continued to grow despite all we've been through.

4. What is your favorite sound? Waves crashing on the sand

5. Favorite word? Why? Indubitably, I just really like the sound of it. :)

6. If you could sit down with one person (living or dead, someone from history or a family member) for a nice long chat, who would it be and what would you talk about? My Nana, she's been gone for 25 years...I would love to talk to her about anything and everything.

7. If you could have any job in the world, what would it be? One where I don't feel like it's work and I am truly happy at.

8.What is the coolest thing about you? Me? cool? those words don't usually go together in the same sentence.

9. What is your favorite color--be precise, don't just say blue, but what kind of blue? Blue - the blue of the ocean in Belize in the shallow areas by the reef. :)

10. Favorite quote or saying? Maya Angelou quotes are my favorites, but this is another good one: "Forget all the reasons why it won't work and believe the one reason why it will." Unknown

11. If you hit the lottery tomorrow, what is the first thing you'd buy? After becomine debt-free, I'd buy a house or condo in Ambergris Caye.

And a bonus question for my fellow fertility-challenged ladies, stealing it from my nominator:

12. Have you yet found any silver lining(s) in the journey of infertility? If so, what?
I really think it's the way J and I have grown stronger and closer during this journey. Sometimes it amazes me how we are as a couple and I am truly grateful for it.

I am not going to nominate anyone this time around but I do have a few questions if you'd like to answer them. :)

If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose?

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

If you could throw any kind of party, what would it be like and what would it be for?


  1. Molly Weasely - a happy marriage and a gaggle of children and able to do magic, that would do me.

    Play the piano or speak German.

    I would have my wedding day over again, exactly the same in every detail.

  2. Great answers! Although I am sure there are many many cool things about you! :D

    If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose?

    That is so hard. Reading the first column my head is stuck on Harry Potter characters...I'll say Cinderella.

    If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

    I'd like to learn sign language or I've always wished I could have learned ballet. Or fantasy answer moving things with my mind would be super cool.

    If you could throw any kind of party, what would it be like and what would it be for?

    I have to agree with the above commenter--I'd love to relive my wedding day!

  3. I have no idea which fictional character I'd choose to be...I think maybe my reading tastes lean to the wierd/dark and so I'm not sure I'd want any of those lives! Having said that, I was a huge fan of Pippi Longstocking growing up, and I think her feisty and subversive nature are admirable :)

    I'd LOVE to be better at learning languages. I speak English, so/so German, and a smattering of others I'd like to have a better grasp of.

    I want to throw a bringing-home-my-healthy-baby party. I've dreamed of it for ages.

  4. I love reading people's Liebster questions/answers!!

    1. I didn't know what fictional character until I read Luna's answer above. Yes, Mrs. Weasely would be AWESOME!

    2. I know this sounds pretty boring, but I would love to learn how to be more organized. In every aspect of my life.

    3. Like Sadie, I have been planning my baby shower for years. Not that I would be throwing it for myself, but I've been making the guest list for a long, long time. I invision how my baby shower would be, with my sister actually throwing it.

    Or....a nice big party on a warm beach in some tropical location. Not feasible, but heck, a person can dream can't she? With dancing, beach volleyball, nice buffet of food and drinks, live band....sigh...I've actually been to one before and it was awesome.
