The Sweetest Kindest Nicest Dearest Beloved Lovely Kind Pleasant Valued Cute Endearing Welcome Award

Liebster Award | Majestic Adventures

Greetings all! I have been nominated for the ‘Liebster Awards’ by the very sweet Sarah at Forever Aspiring Writer. (If you like books and music and movies you should hop on over and give her a visit; she reviews all of those!) Thank ya Sarah! ❤

But wait! you say. If it’s called the Liebster Award, what is with your long title? It barely fit in the subject line of the email I got.

Dear followers, I am so glad you asked.  Me being me, I like to know what words mean. So I Googled “liebster meaning.” Apparently, liebster is of German origin. The definition is as follows: sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Upon reading this interesting tidbit, I decided that instead of titling my post “Liebster Awards” I would title it with it’s definition instead. Hence the result. Long title; it’s definitely a mouthful. I probably can’t even say it from memory. Maybe liebster is a better term. Oh well.

Okay okay, enough of the rambling. What’s going to happen is this: Sarah has asked 10 questions that I will answer. Afterwards, I’ll write my own set of questions and then nominate some other bloggers to answer those! But first I must post the rules, as posting the rules is part of the rules. 😉

Create 10 questions for the new nominees

Cool, now that we got that squared away, shall we continue? 🙂

1. If you had to change your name, what would you rename yourself?

Hmmm…this is an interesting question. I really like the name Ella. (Which wouldn’t be that big a change from my name now! Emma, Ella. Haha.) That might be due to my never-ending love to the Gail Carson Levine story Ella Enchanted, but pfft, it’s so pretty. Simple, yet beautiful! I’ll go with Ella.

2. If you cook, what’s your favorite dish to make?

To be honest, I bake more than I cook. I’ll whip ya up a batch of cookies or brownies in no time and I have the Wilton buttercream frosting recipe memorized. Baking is sweet and yummy. I’m not saying cooking doesn’t have delicious results, but generally Mama’s in charge of the cooking department and I bring along the snacky-sweet things. But, because I’m not answering the question and I should probably do that, I will say that chicken alfredo or cheesy chicken lasagna is my favorite thing to make. I have made that before. Yummmm. I could live off the stuff!

Just for the record, chicken alfredo and cheesy chicken lasagna are about the same thing. If I say one, I mean I’m open to either. Only difference is one goes straight from pot to plate and the other into a 9×13 and bakes for a while. 😉 (Hey mum, doesn’t that sound good for supper sometime this week? *hint hint*)

3. If you could own any animal as a pet, what would you choose?

…can I have three? If so…a river otter, a sea otter, and a manatee please!

4. Would you rather have ice cream on a hot day, or hot chocolate on a cold day?

Ice cream on a hot day please! Right now some twist ice cream with sprinkles sounds yummy! (Even though it’s clearly hot chocolate weather out, lol!)

5. What’s your favorite color to wear?

Goodness gracious, I don’t know! Anything with color. I love color and colorful things. I love the color blue and the color purple–one of those, perhaps? Or I really like my red shirt. My pink sweater? Wait. No. I really like to wear my…well, we’ll just stick with “anything with color”. It seems that would be the best answer for now until I’m able to make up my mind.

6. Do you prefer feeling bored with nothing to do, or feeling busy with so much to do?

Ahh! I enjoy having things to do…but it’s discouraging to know you don’t have enough time to do everything you want to do. Which begs the question…which one would I rather have? I guess I’ll go with “feeling busy with so much to do”.

7. Has a book ever made you cry?

Yessssss. There was one book where someone died, and it came as a complete shock and surprise to me, I could not help it! I really liked that character, and then she was gone?! The sorrows of being a bookworm.

8. How many years do you imagine your blog will be running from now?

I really have no idea, to be honest! I enjoy blogging because I enjoy talking and meeting all you nice people. And because I love to make people smile and laugh by telling you my stories and thoughts on things. Until Jesus tells me it’s time to stop, then I guess I’ll keep it a’goin’!

9. Chess or checkers?

I’m getting better at chess, so we’ll choose that one.

10. If you were granted a pair of wings, what would you want them to look like? XD

I’ve always thought it would be fun to fly! My wings would have to be colorful–like a rainbow, perhaps? Purple and blue and green and orange and pink and then add some glitter in there for good measure. As far as shape goes, I’d rather not have wings like a dragonfly. I like the look of monarch butterfly-shaped wings better. 😀

There, I’m done now! What did you guys think of my answers? How would YOU answer the questions? 😀 Choose a few and comment your answer below; I’d love to hear from you!

And now let me finish out the post by nominating people and writing some Q’s out for them. 🙂

I hereby nominate…

Jacquie at She is Modest -~- Zielle at Writer’s Library -~- Sarah at Life of a Homeschooler

My questions for those people I hereby nominated…

  1. Would you rather go on a cruise or a safari?
  2. What is your favorite thing to do outside?
  3. What is your favorite thing to do inside?
  4. What is one food you just do not like, no matter how many times to you try it?
  5. On the flip side of things, what is your absolute-toppity-top favorite food?
  6. If you could chose a different era to live in (e.g. Bible times, colonial, 1950’s etc) what would you choose?
  7. Do you like history or science better?
  8. Everyone has that one song that always gets stuck in their head–what’s yours?
  9. Favorite Disney movie? (Or any other cartoon, if you don’t like Disney)
  10. Finally, the last question: Do you like to have your socks matching, or are they different colors/patterns?

Aaaaaand done. That’s all for me, folks. Thanks so much for reading, and don’t forget to comment too, if you wanna chat! Until the next time, my wonderful followers. 🙂

    I enjoyed reading your answers! And I totally know about the sad things that happen in books… Somehow I like rereading books that make me cry! One of those books is in the A Life of Faith Violet series. Have you read any A Life of Faith books?

      Thanks CutePolarBear!! Oh I know what you mean; some of the best books are the ones that make you cry. Might as well reread them! And you know it’s a really good book if you cry on the second go-around, lol!
      Oh, no, I haven’t read any of those! They sound pretty good though! I love the Christian fiction, like, I enjoy reading a fiction book and learning about God with the characters, you know? 🙂 I really enjoy Holly’s Heart by Beverly Lewis and the Christy Miller series by Robin Jones Gunn. Have you read either of those, by any chance?

        Yes, Christian Fiction is usually the best genre of books. 🙂 I have not read either of those books. I haven’t read any of the Beverly Lewis books, but I may read some. I’ve never heard of Robin Jones Gunn or Christy Miller. What are those books about?



      • Emma February 10, 2016 / 4:57 pm

        Ooh, I love Beverly Lewis! She’s so good. Who is your favorite author? 😀
        The Christy Miller series follows a 14-almost-15 y/o Christy as she grows up and grows stronger in her faith in God. 🙂 It has a little bit of romance and it’s pretty funny in some spots. I think it’s my favorite series, hehe! 🙂


      • CutePolarBear February 10, 2016 / 7:19 pm

        Okay, those books sound interesting! My favorite author may be Grace Livingstone Hill, but I’ve only read one book of hers so far. 😉 Martha Finley (the one who wrote the Life of Faith books) is also a really good author.



      • Emma February 11, 2016 / 12:37 pm

        Oh, I’ve never heard of her before! I’ve heard of Martha Finley before though; my friend likes to read the Elsie Dinsmore series. I’ve never read those before, but I heard they’re good? I’d like to try one sometime, but I haven’t taken the time because I’ve got sooooooo many books I want to read and reread! lol!


    • CutePolarBear February 11, 2016 / 3:34 pm

      Yes, the Elsie Dinsmore series is really good. You should really read them! Of course, the Millie books are set before that, and so it’s probably best to read them first. It doesn’t really matter, though.
      Hehe! I like rereading books, but not when I have books to read that I haven’t read before. Except when I’m staring at a bookshelf and I want to read a small book that I can read in one sitting… 😉



      • Emma February 11, 2016 / 3:44 pm

        Oh, are they? That’s good to know! 😀
        Haha, see, I could reread books before reading a new one, just because I get all worried, like, what if I don’t like the new book?! But I’ve been doing better and trying new books. 😀 Haha, right!!


  2. kreativekana February 9, 2016 / 11:43 pm

    Hi Emma! I enjoyed reading your answers. 🙂 Thank you so much for nominating me!! One question; do I make my own award or use the same one? I’ll get to it right away. 😀


    • Emma February 10, 2016 / 11:27 am

      Thanks Zielle! ❤ And you're welcome! Tags are always fun, lol. 😀
      You can just use the same one–you're asking if you use the Liebster award too, right? Then yeah, you can just say you got the Liebster award as well! I look forward to reading your post!!!!!

    Haha! I love how you searched the meaning of liebster! That’s excellent! 😀 Your answers were awesome! Great job! 🙂 I was especially surprised when your answer to question 10 was EXACTLY my preference! Goodness! It was exactly how I pictured I would answer the question! XD Your posts always make me smile! ❤


    • Emma February 10, 2016 / 11:28 am

      Lol, thanks! I actually didn’t think I’d find anything; I thought it was just some random off-the-wall word, you know?! XD
      Oh my goodness, really?! That is so funny! LOL!! In my head I was kinda basing my wings off of a fairy movie I watched when I was little, LOL. That’s so cool how we had the same idea. XD
