AWARD: Liebster – Discover New Blogs

I was nominated for this award by Susan at SUSANDYER1962. You should take a look at her blog and follow her. She’s got fantastic content. She’s very kind and friendly; we interact online all the time and it’s always fun. I believe the award is for helping to discover great new blogs you’d want to follow, so here goes my follow-up for the Liebster Award:

  • Nominate 11 people

10. What book are you reading right now? Do you like it?

Also, can anyone tell me who this “Liebster” is, or what that references???  😛



  1. I googled it, and I am guessing it comes from the German translation ‘beloved’, or ‘sweetheart’.

    Great answers, btw 🙂

    I’ve been working on this too…and I was going to nominate you as well…I hope you aren’t tired of these awards! The curse of being an awesome blogger! lol

  2. James! You’re list of shows!!!! I need to get into some of the ones you listed that I haven’t seen yet because we have the same tastes! Congratulations on the award and thanks for the nomination! Your questions are going to be so fun to answer! 😀

  3. Thanks, James for the award! I will try to get to it tonight or sometime later this week! Tomorrow I’m having a lovely root canal, so I’m not sure what I’ll be in the mood to answer or if they would make any sense at all, which might be interesting, lol!

    I do love your tv shows! I’m glad to see SNL, Scandal, and How to Get Away With Murder are on your list;; they are great! Falcon Crest!! I remember my mom and grandma watching that when I was maybe 4 or 5; I always wanted to watch, but my mom made me leave the room because it was “too grown up”. But, my grandma used to let me watch it at her house, lol. I’m pretty sure my mom was right…

    • Yikes… hope the root canal is as painless as possible, Stephanie.

      As for Falcon Crest, it has some risque moments, especially for under 13! Love my TV shows, but I try to keep it to less than 90 minutes a night. Summer’s are lighter with less on, so it is much easier.


      • Thanks! I hope so too; I’ve never had a root canal, so this will be interesting, but I have a pretty high pain tolerance so am counting on that to help!

        Yeah, I’ve seen some clips of Falcon Crest (along with reruns of Dynasty and Dallas that my grandma also let me watch, and I know I shouldn’t have!!), and there is no way that I would let my 6 yr old daughter watch it! Seems it’s true that grandparents spoil you more than your parents do!

        I have so many things dvr’d that I just haven’t had time to watch over the past couple of semesters, but I did get caught up enough with Scandal to see the season finale last week, wow! Summer is definitely my time to catch up on tv, movies, and my reading..reading always comes 1st though!!

  4. […] I’m a slacker. I’ve been nominated for this award twice! Thank you to the spectacular James, who I’ve nominated for plenty awards, because I love reading his 365 challenge posts! […]
