Liebster Award #4

Liebster Award, Eternally Wanderlyn

It happened again! I received another Liebster Award from the awesome Sandy of The Fearless Scribe making me feel very special this morning. Thanks for the self-esteem boost, Sandy! I’m so honored to be one of your picks. šŸ™‚

However, because I’ve done this a time or two (or three) before, I’m going to do things a little bit differently.

Here are the original rules:

  1. Thank the blogger who gives it to you.
  2. Answer the eleven questions he/she asks.
  3. Nominate eleven bloggers with less than 500 followers.
    (My first 3 nominations were for blogs with less than 200 followers. These things are growing!)
  4. Ask these eleven bloggers eleven questions.
  5. Let these eleven bloggers know that they have been nominated.

Instead of nominating more blogs, I’m going to get straight to the questions Sandy asked:

How did you come by your blog’s name?

I agonized over the name for weeks! I pestered my friends and Troy for ideas and created a long list of possibilities. Then one day it hit me – Eternally Wanderlyn. It’s sort of a play on “eternally wanderin’.” As many of you know, I have an incurable case of wanderlust. Mix that with the constant sensation that I’m merely wandering through life and you’ve got me and my blog – Eternally Wanderlyn. šŸ™‚

If money were no object and you could leave tomorrow, where would you go?

Where wouldn’t I go?! I would wander across the globe starting with my favorite city, London.

Travel, Vacation

What is the best meal you’ve ever eaten?

Oh, there are just too many to choose from! I love food. I mean, that saying, “I love you like a fat kid loves cake” didn’t just come out of no where. However, since I’ve been craving Mexican food from my hometown lately, I will go with fajitas from a little local restaurant back home called Kiki’s.

I love food, Shrek Fairy Godmother
Name 1 TV show you are currently addicted to that you would growl and bare teeth if someone interrupted you while you were watching?

I am pretty much obsessed with Sherlock, so I’m sure if someone interrupted my viewing pleasure I would have no problem going all out feral on them. I’m so sad the seasons are so short!

What is your dream car and what do you drive in reality?

Actually, I don’t have a dream car. I would much rather live in a city with a good public transportation system, as lame as that sounds. I like being able to walk everywhere. Unfortunately, San Antonio isn’t exactly known for being walker friendly, so I drive a 2004 GMC Envoy with super dark tint. That shit comes in handy during the summer!

I would walk 500 miles

One thing you can’t possibly live without?

My laptop. I need it to make a living, keep up with my blog, keep in touch with all of you and stalk your asses on Twitter.

Stalkers
Coffee or tea?

Tea. I know I’m about to lose some cool points here, but I have never liked the taste of coffee.

I write because ______________?

I write because I adore it. Writing is the best way I know how to communicate, express myself, create and explore the depths of my own crazy mind. I have always loved the power of the written word – reading it, writing it, speaking it, but I have usually reserved my writing for my eyes only. So this blog has allowed me to share my passion with others, while also meeting some awesome people.

What is your go-to song when you need cheering up?

Again, there are so many! I’m a firm believer in musical therapy when I’m having a bad day. I’ll put on some upbeat dance music and dance out all my worries. Nobody puts baby in a corner!

I love to dance, Dancing Jimmy Pesto
What is your favorite season?

I am in love with the Fall season. I love the cool breezes, changing leaves, and knee high boots. It doesn’t hurt that my birthday and Halloween are in the Fall, too.

Will you bake me cookies and overnight them? Pretty please?

I see what you did here, Sandy. Pretty sneaky. And pretty genius. I’d love to bake you cookies! But I can’t guarantee that they will all make it out of my kitchen safely.

I've got 99 cookies

How did y’all come up with the names for your blogs?
  • i hate coffee!! yay tea!!
    also i agree with the public transportation thing! i am from sydney, and didnt drive until i was 20 something because of how easy it was to get around. then i started working somewhere that would take me too long to bus + train so i got a car. now i live in KY, which basically has no public transportation haha.

    • Haha! Yea, I can’t imagine KY having much public transportation. We do have a bus system in San Antonio, but it would take forever to get anywhere. Texas is just too spread out for that.

  • I am dying laughing over these GIFS! So perfect!!!

    Fall is my favorite time of year as well, I can eat my weight in Mexican food and you can certainly send some cookies my way too!

    • Haha! I think I need to just start baking now and send some cookies to EVERYONE! šŸ˜€

  • I feel you on the tea! I hate coffee! This post was hilarious and I loved the gifs.

    • Thanks! I’m glad you liked it. I’m also glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t like tea. šŸ˜€

  • I also hate the taste of coffee lol. You are not alone šŸ™‚ My blog name comes from the work squadron my husband worked with when I first started blogging. Also – I LOVE Sherlock too šŸ™‚

    • Yay! I’m always happy to find another Sherlock fan. šŸ˜€ And I love your blog name. šŸ˜€

  • I love your blog name! Definitely suits you. Living in a walkable neighborhood sounds like something I’d say too! Except my hubs looooooves his green space, so I’ll side with him since I’m sure the kids would love it too. I love that dancing GIF! I came up with my name expandng because I first started blogging about my first pregnancy and it was the start of our expanding family. I dropped the “I” because our last name is Ng, which is pronounced “ing.”

    • Thanks! Troy loves wide open spaces too. He’s a country boy, so he would love to live slightly outside of the city.

      I love your blog name! I love the way it incorporates your last name so perfectly. šŸ˜€

  • Totally agree that musical therapy is the best! And I love the cookie monster pic! x

  • That is so me about the car…I would much rather live somewhere that I don’t even need a car. Raleigh is not that city b/c the public transportation sucks and there is not a walk-able grocery/other stores downtown šŸ™ The cookie monster pic is too funny!

    • Everywhere should have amazing public transportation! Then again, people might not want to walk in the Texas heat during the summer. Oh, well. And I’m glad you liked the cookie monster pic! šŸ˜€

  • Amanda

    I don’t think I could live w/o my laptop either! Or my phone!

  • I love the cookie monster pic!
