I've been nominated for the Liebster award!

The awesome Katie over at RUNNING A RAGNAR nominated me for the Liebster award!

What is the Liebster award?
Here is Katie's explanation:

1. This award is given to new or up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.
2. The award is then passed along to other bloggers in the same category to help spread the word and support one another.
3. Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.

4. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, then create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to.
5. Choose 11 new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link them in your post.

6. Go back to their page and tell them about the award.
7. No tag backs (aka, don’t nominate the person who nominated you).

1. Cat or Dog person and why?
This is a tough one. I do love cats (we used to have a Manx/Abyssian mix and he was the BEST.) But Irish Wolfhounds have my heart
2. What was the most embarrassing AIM Screenname or Email address you every created ?

Thankfully I've never created an embarrassing one!
3. What is your favorite Billy Joel song?

Reese's PB cup!
6. What was your favorite job, or what would your dream job be?
Favorite job: nanny.....Dream job: mom.  =)

Cheesy Garlic bread for 'sho!

'Live your life in such a way that those who dont know God, will come to know God, because of you.'
9. What was the name of your first pet?
We had 2 cats when I was little named Tigger and Cocoa. But I think MY first pet was a hamster named Mimi or my poodle named Princess. Cant remember which I got first
10. Were you a tomboy or a glitzy girl?
Total girly-girl
11. What was your biggest baking or cooking fail?
Boy, I fail all the time, which is why I dont bake/cook very much!  Maybe the big batch of chocolate chip cookies I made for Christmas for one year and forgot to put in the baking soda (or powder), see I cant even remember which one it uses!

1. I was born in Korea, my mom is full Korean but I only know, like THREE words in Korean. I wish I had taken the time to learn more.
2. I have 5 kids (4 girls ages 12, 11, 9 and 7 and a tornado, I mean BOY, who is 5). When I was  young I used to want an orphanage of 100 children but they would all be mine to keep. I wouldnt adopt any of them out.
3. I homeschool my kiddos and have since my oldest (who is 12) was 5 and I LOVE it
4.I have never broken a bone
5. I grew up in a town of about 6,000 and had a Dairy Queen practically in my backyard (I could see it from our window at the back of our house and it was about a 5 minute walk away). My love for the Blizzard has NEVER wavered. (side note: my dad grew up in a SUPER small town that is now not even called a town-its technically a village!)
6. I met my husband in highschool. I was a lowly freshman and he was a super hot, super popular, SUPER athletic senior who was WAAAAY out of my league. We didn't start dating til the end of my senior year.
7. I have 2 older brothers who are both preachers.
8. Other than being born in Korea, I've never traveled outside of the U.S. (well, I take that back, on a band trip in high school we went to Arizona and while there, we took a short 1 day trip down to Nogales, Mexico.) I would love to visit Hawaii someday!
9. I used to play the saxophone and clarinet and can still tinker around a bit on the piano.
10. I STILL love to read the Little House on the Prairie books as much now, as I did when I was a kid. My girls used to be OBSESSED with them and would refer to themselves as 'Mary, Laura, Carrie and Grace' SO much that we had to remind them to call each other by their given names!
11. I once rode an elephant. (how's THAT for random?)  =)
