Leibster Award

Ahh!!! I've been nominated for the Leibster Award! (Sorry, I'm really excited) I've been reading other peoples version's of it for years and always thought "I'd like to do that" and now it's happening!! Thanks Brooke Faulkner for nominating me. The rules for this Award are as follows:

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 (you can’t nominate the blogger who nominated you)
Ask them 11 questions
Let them know about the nomination.

So here are the 11 facts about me.

1. My bedroom has no less than 19 posters in it.
2. I have been accused of biting the dentist and threatening to scratch the doctor- neither of which are true.
3. I am getting a new puppy on Monday or Tuesday!!
4. I really, really wish I was born with an older brother.
5. I believe dragons and unicorns were real at one time in history.
6. I'm only five feet tall :(
7. My shoes size is TEN!
8. I will only sleep on the left hand side of the bed. No exceptions.
9. I chew gum all the time, except when I'm nervous.
10. I really love to do eye makeup on myself and anyone else who will let me.
11. I get in trouble for reading all the time.

And here are the 11 questions I'm supposed to answer.

1. Do you like Nutella?
 I loooove Nutella. Never even tasted it till last year, but now I love it. Don't keep it on hand though :(

2. How many animals do you have?
   Well, I have like 8 farm cats, my new puppy is on the way, six horses, two cows that are mine personally- but there's a whole herd I help take care of.

3. Rock or classical?
 Rock. Every time.

4. What time period do you wish you had been born in?
 In the 1800's. Either around the Civil War, or else like Westward Migration. I also think the Great Depression was a cool era. Hobo's fascinate me...

5. Have you ever kissed a chipmunk?
 Never even seen one.

6. Would you rather eat and write inside or outside?
That all depends if it's windy or not. Usually I like to eat inside because of pets. But I like to write outside as long as my pages aren't blowing all over. I'll do both anywhere though ;)

7. Have you ever thrown your mashed potatoes up against the wall?

 8. Which hero would you like to have save you and/or marry you?
Murtagh!!! Or like...superhero? If we're talking superhero's, I'm gonna have to go with Iron Man. Just to save me though. Not marry.

 9. Have you ever watched Jonah or The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything (VeggieTales)?
I've only seen Jonah once or twice, but I love(d) The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything. I have the Relient K version of the song on my ipod ^_^

 10. Chocolate or cheese?

11. What is your favorite genre to write/read?

 That is so hard to answer. I go through phases in what genre I read? Like each season. A few months out of the year I only read western, then I only read dystopia, or fantasy. I guess my tops are dystopia, fantasy, and western. I like to write fantasy/midevil and contemporary, but I'm really trying to experiment in most of the genre's right now.

I only have seven bloggers I follow that have less than 200 followers, so here they are.

I nominate-

1. Bethany from The Ramblings of a Young Author
2. Rachel from The Inkpen Authoress
3. Gillian from Of Battles, Dragons, and Swords of Adamant.
4. Sarah from Inklined
5. Skye from Ink Castles
6. Andrea from Fantasies and Fountainpens
7.Georgianna from Before my pen has gleaned

My questions are:
1. If you could only read, or only write, which one would you choose?
2. What is your favorite kind of pop?
3. Tablet or keyboard?
4. Favorite book you've read this year?
5. Do you have pets?
6. Ever rode a horse?

9. Country or Rock?
10. Do you like sports?
11. Where is the farthest you have traveled from home?


  1. Hey, we just got a sixth horse on Wednesday. I didn't know you had so many animals Maddie. My shoe size is ten too, but I'm also 5' 8". ;P

    Like your answers. :)

    1. Awesome! It's great getting new horses. We haven't got a new one for two years. Yeah I live on a farm, so there's quite a few :) oh I think I forgot to mention chickens xp
      It's hard to find cute shoes in that size :( aw jealous! That's the height I'd like to be :)
      Thanks! I had fun doing it.

  2. Thanks for the nomination. Nutella the stuff of legends.

    1. You're welcome :) I haven't got over to read your answers yet. Grrr. Busy day.
      Oh my gosh, I didn't think it would be as good as everyone made out, but I was soooo wrong.

  3. Thanks for the nomination. I can't believe that you've never seen a chipmunk! That's crazy. :) Congratulations on getting your new puppy soon, I want lots of pictures! :D

    1. Welcome :) I know! I don't even know if we have them in my state 0.o
      Thanks! Oh I will post lots! She's coming this evening!!

  4. Thanks so much for tagging me, Maddie! I've been tagged a bunch in the last few weeks, so I guess some people really want me to do this tag. Looks like fun! (Although your first question is totally unfair. It's like asking me which limb I'd most prefer having.)
    ~Sarah Faulkner

    1. You're welcome :) Oh wow, that's cool. It's a fun tag to do. Haha, I know :P (Actually, I'd have an easier time choosing which limb over which word related activity) ;)
