Questions for Nominees from Gilligan
  1. What is the most interesting location you have traveled to, and what made it so special? West Sussex, UK my first ever over the pond trip to meet a dear facebook friend for the first time. She is a Chesapeake lover just like me who is into hunting and trialing her dogs so she took me on a hunt and to a trial to see how things were done over the pond. A trip of a lifetime that I will never forget.
  2. What method have you found works best for reaching more blog followers and engaging your audience? Visiting other bloggers pages weather it is their blog or other social media commenting, liking, tweeting and sharing their stuff. 
  3. How much time per week do you dedicate to your blog? I swear it is 24/7. On my day’s off it is all day long.
  4. What is your strategy for engaging brands, and how many brands do you regularly work with? I don’t engage brands as I have the free WP account and you aren’t suppose to do that stuff on it. Hopefully one day I will venture out to selfhosted.
  5. Would you ever consider adding a new dachshund puppy to your family (regardless of your current family makeup)? I would, I do like them a lot, they have such personalities. I just love the ones that come into our clinic.
  6. What is your number one talent that sets you apart from the rest of the “pack?” My goofy “pack”. 
  7. Would you ever consider appearing in a music video? If so, what genre would it be? Nope, this white girl can’t dance.
  8. Are you planning to attend the BlogPaws 2015 Conference? Optional follow-up: If so, does the revenue generated from your blog site cover the costs of your attendance? I am not but hope to one day.
  9. What is the next major goal or new milestone you hope to accomplish with your blog? Go selfhosted.
  10. What is your ultimate “dream come true?” winning the lottery and sharing my millions with my friends.
  11. What aspects constitute the “perfect walk” (in terms of location, length of time, activities, etc.)? Hunting with my Chessies.

11 random facts about me:

1. I tear up at so many different things.

2. I live in my yoga pants when not at work and now they want to try and ban them….urgh….hope not!

3. I’ve been logging into my fitness pal for just over 2 years.

4. I don’t have to wash my face in the morning because Gambler licks it all night long.

5. I have to fall asleep with the TV on and would leave it on all night if it didn’t piss the husband off.

6. My most favorite food is seafood.

7. I could eat at Mc Donalds each day and not get sick of it (sometimes I eat there three times a day).

8. I love to wear my Harley Davison clothes and I don’t even have a bike nor does my husband. I just make people think I am cool!

9. I would like to get another cat.

10. I can’t stand my normal hair color of brown and would like to go back to being a blond but don’t want to pay for it.

11. I won’t drink cold drinks outside if it is cold out. I hate being cold!

There you have it the skinny on me!

I have to tell you bloggers are the best friends. A while back I won a doggie cookbook from Oz The Terrier, I had recently won another giveaway (lucky me) which was Winter Warmers which is made by #honestkitchen. I told Oz I never received my cookbook. On Valentines day the gang got a great Valentines gift. They got their Beef And Bone Broth by The Honest Kitchen and then Oz gave me his own copy of the Canine Cookbook. He didn’t have to do that and that meant a lot to me, what a kind sole. Thank you Oz for all the goodies you are the best!

The loot!

MK wants me to get cooking.

I leave you with my Mardi Gras bloopers. I had fun doing the Mardi Gras photo shoots.

  1. Congratulations on your award, it was fun reading your answers and~~~you are a lil rebel you are 🙂 How sweet of OZ to send you his copy of the book and such great treats~


  2. congrats! if you come the second time over the big pond please don’t forget to visit me :o) we could visit our semi-mc donalds, bet that would be special lol. the photos are great, the bloopers are always the best :o)


  3. I love the way the questions on this award vary depending on who is bestowing it. Sad that I won’t be seeing you in Nashville this year, but I hope some day to meet you.

    Love the blooper photos and thanks for joining the blog hop!


  4. Great post! I love learning more about you and discovering why we make such good friends. We have so many similarities! It is so funny that you live in such a cold place and don’t love the cold. We wanted to move to Colorado since retiring, but a couple of really cold days convinced me I would not do well there in the winter. LOL! They have tried to outlaw pajama pants and sagging jeans here for years. We even made the national news for being stupid about such things.


  5. I’ll be honest – I could eat McDonald’s 3 times a day, but I’d be sick as a dog. Not that their food is bad, but because I have gluten sensitivities. I can hardly eat any fast food now. 😦


  6. Oh McDonald’s. I don’t eat there often but the day of the hellish all day eye doctor appointment I was starving and stopped and got a Quarter Pounder w/cheese when I was done. Stress eating at its best. I haven’t eaten at McD’s in months and it was oh so yummy! Love the Mardi Gras outtakes. Thanks so much for joining the hop!


  7. Congrats on the award too, and for being a rule breaker as well! I really loved your answers. 24/7 on the blog…that’s perfect, I should have said that! I tear up all the time too….drives my hubby nuts. He’s the one that would sleep with the TV on all night, that drives me crazy!
    We have no eating habits in common either….McDonald’s food upsets my stomach so I eat it rarely, and I’m allergic to seafood!
    Thanks, I really enjoyed learning more about you and seeing what we have/don’t have in common!
