Liebster Award

The other day I opened up my email to see that I had received an email saying that I had been nominated for the Liebster Award! I have never been nominated for anything blog related so this was exciting for me. Anna of Herbivore Triathlete is the blogger who nominated me!

11 Questions asked by Anna

1. What was your motivation for starting your blog?
The reason I started my blog was to use it as a way to raise awareness for ovarian cancer while tracking my training for a half-marathon. I started it so people could easily donate to the Paypal account I have set up for my aunt's fundraiser. I quickly began loving blogging and wrote about much more than just my training.

2. What was your favorite subject in school?
I didn't really have a favorite subject but I can tell you what my least favorite subject was: History! I couldn't stand reading about things that happened hundreds of years ago and frankly, I didn't really care.

3. What is your favorite childhood memory?

I have so many but one of my favorites is when I would spend the night at my grandparent's house on the weekend and in the morning we would always go to a local diner for breakfast, we always got the same thing every time and my grandma and I would split it, and then we would go to a pond and feed the ducks and swans. It was always fun and we would alternate weekends between my other siblings so we each got a weekend alone with the grandparents a month.

4. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I would go to Lebanon. My dad was born there and I think it would be cool to see where he grew up.

5. What’s your favorite aspect of blogging?
I love getting to know other bloggers. The blog world is such a fun and inviting place.

6. What is your dream job?
I am going to school now so that I can have my dream job of being a Speech Pathologist. 

7. Do you have any siblings?
Yes. We are all very close in age too. My sister is a year younger than me and then there are twin boys a year younger than her.

8. Which do you prefer, cooking or baking?

Baking! I never really have to cook because my mom normally does whenever I am home so I don't have a passion for it. I enjoy baking especially because you get to eat all of the yummy food after!

9. If you only had one day left on earth, how would you spend it?
I would spend it with my family. 

10. What’s your favorite meal?
Grape leaves are one of my favorites! I also love lasagna and anything Mexican.

11. If you were stranded on an island, what two items would you bring with you?
If I couldn't take anything that needed electricity then I would take my toothbrush and matches. I can't stand it when I don't brush my teeth and matches would help me if I needed to start a fire.
