Leibster Awards!

Sooo a week or more ago, I got nominated for two Leibster Awards.  Tinisha at Note the Obvious nominated me first, followed by Heather at Dog Mom Chic!  The rules are as follows:


  1. Acknowledge the blog who nominated you (see above)
  2. Answer the 11 questions given to you by the blogger.  (Thankfully these are the same, but I was fully prepared to answer 22 questions)
  3. Provide 11 facts about yourself (No, I will not provide you with 22 facts)
  4. Nominate 11 blogs you think deserve the award (a blog that has under 200 followers)*
  5. Prepare 11 questions for those blogs to answer.
So, their questions; my answers.
  1. What kind of music do you like?  Country.  Classic Country. Not bro-country.
  2. If you could pick one person in the entire world to meet, who would it be?  Prince Harry for purely superficial reasons.
  3. Do you have any pets? If so, what kind?  Why yes, yes I do.  I have two purebred Rottweilers and one Rottie-mix.  And a husband- does he count?
  4. What is something most people don't know about you?  I've never ever EVAR dyed my hair.
  5. What is your biggest pet peeve?  Slow drivers in the left lane.  I know this is everybody's,  but I drive 94 miles a day, so it especially gets on my nerves.
  6. What is the story behind the name of your blog?  Well, as mentioned above, I have dogs.  They look like bears.  The oldest's nickname is Bear.  It just kind of snowballed from that- our house phone even says "Bear Den" on it.
  7. What would you do if you won the lottery?  See this post.
  8. What do you do to relax?  Big glass of wine.  By glass, I mean Tervis mug so it stays cold.
  9. Do you have any bad habits? If so, what?  I bite my finger nails.  Badly.
  10. What is the one thing that you are grateful for? I'm grateful for a lot of things.  My job, my family, my dogs.  But I guess I'm especially grateful to have a little bit of common sense.
  11. If you had to pick just one thing you couldn't live without, what would it be?  Ohhh dear.  This sounds so very cheesy and not my style, but I'd have to pick Scott.  Like, if we were in a zombie apocalypse, I'm pretty sure we'd win.

11 facts about myself

  1. I grew up in a small town in Maine.  I now live in an even smaller town in Florida.
  2. I've converted Scott's dog (Hunter) into my dog.  It's okay because he has little Rylee.
  3. I didn't get my driver's license until I was 22.
  4. I have a crazy good long-term memory.  
  5. I'm one of those people that memorize numbers well.  Except for the combination to our safe- I still don't know it.
  6. I like quiet times at home without the tv on.  Which only happens when I'm here by myself, but I literally don't turn on the tv all day long.
  7. Up until the Duck Commander Miss Priss wine, I couldn't stand the taste of 99% of alcohols.
  8. The 1% that I could stand is blue margaritas and strawberry margaritas, but who's gonna make those at home?
  9. I play Call of Duty.  But only with my husband because I suck too bad to play online against anyone else.
  10. It's killing me that I can't get a new phone until next year.  I lose my phone somewhere just about every day.  I keep hoping it won't reappear so I can justify getting an iPhone 6.
  11. The temperatures are dipping down to the 30's and 40's at night.  We sleep with the windows open.

11 questions for the blogs I nominate:

  1. Name the first song that comes to your mind.
  2. What's the best thing to happen to you in 2014?
  3. The worst?
  4. What is a good series of books to read? (Not Harry Potter I already know those are fantastic!)
  5. What is the best vacation spot in the US?
  6. Give me a random Friends quote.
  7. Best "splurge" item you've purchased?
  8. What's your favorite "old" tv show? From the 80s or before.
  9. What's your "day" job?
  10.  Best tv show ever?
  11. What's a good random website to visit?

11 Blogs I Nominate to answer these questions:

A Love Triangle
Wonderfully Made
Caitlin, etc.
Balteress
Jalopina
Jetsettin' Daisy
Puppies and Pretties

*Okay so I failed at naming 11 blogs to pass this on to, but give me a break!
