Happy Monday, everyone! I don’t have school today (thanks, Presidents!). I really don’t have much to say and I got tagged to do a Liebster Award, so why not? First, a quick recap of the weekend.
A fabulous dinner on Valentine’s Day!
Basketball game. We won!
Cross country skiing with Bridget! We actually covered 7 miles. It didn’t feel like that much at all! Time flies when you’re having fun, right? I’m not sore yet… we’ll see as the day goes on!
And grandma’s for dinner. Meatballs, potatoes, veggies, rolls, and strawberries!
Okay, Liebster Award time! I’ve never done one before! Here are Emily‘s questions:
1. What is your favorite place (in the whole world!) and why?
Hmmm. I don’t want to pick a place I’ve never been to, so I’ll say my bed. There is nothing I like more than hitting the sheets after a long day! Otherwise I really like Paris.
2. What is your favorite season?
Definitely summer! Every day just being able to enjoy nature and do whatever I please. Fall comes in a close second – perfect running weather and so pretty!
3. What is the best recipe you’ve ever tried?
Seriously, Emily? You’re making me pick one recipe? Probably my banana bread. I haven’t posted it on the blog yet, but when I do, you guys are in for a serious treat.
4. How were you named?
My mom had liked the name Leah since her childhood and she got the different spelling from a girl named Leigh-Ann. I used to hate the spelling of my name but now I’m coming to like how unique it is! I just don’t like how I can never find my name on any of those keychains…
5. Coffee or tea or neither?
NEITHER. Coffee = nasty. I guess tea is okay but I haven’t really found one that I really like yet! Any recommendations?
6. If you could travel anywhere in the world with no budget, but you only got to go to one place, where would you go?
HOW can I only pick one place?! No budget, so it’s got to be somewhere expensive. Maybe Austrailia? It seems beautiful there! Plus kangaroos!
7. What is your most embarrassing moment? (I love hearing these!)
None really stick out to me. I guess in second grade I puked while running out of the classroom to the bathroom. I used to get embarrassed about everything but I don’t get embarrassed easily anymore!
8. What is your biggest accomplishment to date?
I could go a lot of ways with this one… running a half marathon, giving a speech at 8th Grade Recognition, or raising $2,000 for Boston. But really, I’d say the one that I’m most proud of is overcoming depression and recovering from an ED. In no way am I completely recovered, but I had the strength to choose recovery and I’m pretty proud of that! That post is in my drafts 😉
9. Would you rather have an extra hour to cook dinner each night or go out to eat each night?
I’m going the opposite way of everyone else on this one. I would definitely rather go out for dinner! I like cooking, but I can never decide what to make. I love going out because I don’t have to do anything but order!
10. And because I love the question, what do you love about yourself? 🙂
I guess I like my determination! Once I start something, I’m going to finish it. I think I’m a very caring person and I always try to help people whenever I can!
I would tag 10 people, but pretty much everyone has already filled this out. So answer any of these questions in the comments or answer them all in a post! Hope you are all having a marvelous day!
