Liebster Award...Cool!

Thank you to Nancy C at Teaching is Elementary for the Liebster Award Nomination. How cool!
I think it is a pretty cool process, and I'm excited to get involved.

So, here goes...

The Rules:
1. You must post 11 random things about yourself.
2. You must answer the questions that the nominator set for you. 
3. You must create 11 new questions for the people you nominate.
4. You must choose 11 other blogs with fewer than 200 followers to nominate and link them in your post. 
5. No tag backs to the blog that nominated you, but do leave a comment on their post with the URL of your Liebster post.

Random Things About Me:
  1. I would rather drive my first car, Chevy Chevette, than my current SUV, Envoy.
  2. I bought my home because it had a maple, willow, and apple tree!
  3. My daughter and son are the only people that can get me to sing.
  4. My husband proposed to me on Halloween.
  5. I LOVE Arizona and all states west!
  6. I love skiing and kinda stink at snowboarding (but love to claim it).
  7. I love Muppets, Fraggles, Ninja Turtles, Scooby Doo, and Darkwing Duck. Seriously, LOVE!
  8. My first school project that I remember enjoying was a mock interview video in which I was featured as a world known brain surgeon. (I said that I wanted to fix my sister's brain. Ha!)
  9. I cried when my maple tree was cut down this summer. I sobbed when my apple tree was taken out in a storm a couple years ago. And, I plan on moving if my willow tree ever falls!
  10. I get SO excited watching my kids play sports, but I'm terrified of them getting hurt. So, I mostly hold my breath during their games.
  11. I can't help but SEE science all around me...constantly. Seriously, I'm thinking of electrons, light energy, and more while typing this!

My questions:

  2. When you see a sunset, do you think "gorgeous" or "refracted light"?
  3. Have you ever wanted to talk to a former teacher? Did you?

  1. Not sure why I hadn't seen this before! Thanks for taking the "Leibster" and going forth! Can't imagine being a roofer as I'm afraid of heights.
    So glad you are a teacher - imagine all those kids missing out on your caring and expertise!

    Take care!
