Thoughtful Liebster Thursday!

Abi of The Good the Bad & the Quirky was an utter doll & nominated me for a Liebster Award! Whoop!

You must check out her blog. Its a wonderfully ramble-ish slice o'life blog which is a pleasure to read. You won't be sorry for following along, I promise.

She has asked me {& the other nominees} a few questions. And they are cool questions. So that's cool~*

1. What is your favorite snack when feeling peckish?

Snacks change for me.  I get in a snack rut for a while, having the same thing day after day, then suddenly I get tired of it & shift to something else.
Right now, I am passionately enamored with this:

Wensleydale with cranberries.  Served on Glutino Bagel Chips.  Soooo many yummies~*

2. What is your favorite season and why?

Autumn.  Because I live here:

Words can not describe how gorgeous it is.

That said, I'm pretty in love with spring right now, so, there's that...

3. What place is the top of your holiday wish list and why?


A while back, my Dad & I embarked on a genealogical journey.  

Dad had known for a long time that his mother's people went way back {turns out his Dad's side did too}, and that the family name was Crawford.  But he was able to uncover tons of additional info this last go round.  Here is the family, if you are curious, though I don't know why you should be.  I am, of course.  Which brings me to this vacation wish.
We {my hubs, me, & my folks}have been talking about hopping a train and traveling up to Crawford Notch to have a real look-see for well over a year now.  I totally wanna go.  Doesn't it look lovely?

Granted, this pic is from 1916, but still...

4. Do you have a song that simply forces you to smile/tap your toes/get up and shake your thing, no matter what you may have been feeling before it came on?

Like snacks, my musical taste changes too.  I'm a change-y person.  I have favorites of course, but mostly they are abstract... meaning I don't listen to them all the time, I just love them.  Which sounds odd, but you just gotta trust me.
Right now, this song is pretty much guaranteed to get all of us dancing {foul language, so fair warning}

The video is hilarious, but I can't embed it.  You can see it here.
Mackelmore is Thing 2's current favorite.  Thing 1 introduced Thing 2 to him last fall, & he was hooked.  And now that Thing 2 is driving our car, I am often left listening to the cd.  I'm not sorry.  He's really awesome~*

 5. Describe one of the best, or most interesting, meals you ever had.

Most interesting?  Bison steak with lobster sauce.  Delicious and about a gazillion calories, in case you are wondering.  Best?  A toss up between my Dad's spaghetti sauce & my hubs' red pepper pesto.  Both are utterly and completely to die for.

Now its my turn!

I am nominating:

Lynaea from Everyday Bloom
Cassy from The Workette

Whoop!!  Copy & Paste your badge my lovely ladies & answer these questions in a post, then nominate your own Liebster blogs!

  1. What is your favorite sort of book to curl up to & what beverage goes with it?
  2. If Hollywood called and told you they were making a movie about your life, what would the name of the movie be & who would play you?
  3. If you were mad at a loved one, what sort of flowers would be their ticket out of the doghouse?
  4. What is your favorite piece of clothing (provide a picture of it if you can) & why do you love it so?
  5.  If you could only watch one movie for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Can't wait to check out your answers & see your nominees!

Happy Thursday All!


  1. I enjoyed reading your answers. I don't blame you for loving autumn with that view. Breathtaking!

    My niece wants me to put that thrift shop song on my blog as a theme song. ;)

  2. Yay! Great answers, and may I say you live in a most jaw-droppingly beautiful place! :)

  3. That hunk of cheese got my attention! Happily following from the weekend social, and now off in search of a snack...

    Congrats on the award, have a happy Thursday :)

  6. Congratulations on your Liebster! It's always great when one of our peers recognize us :). I'm following from the Aloha Friday Blog Hop :)

    The Wondering Brain

  7. It's always fun to hear these little details, and I've seen that cranberry cheese but never had it... yum!

  8. Loved reading this Tabetha! I totally agree with you on cranberry cheese and Autumn, both utterly fabulous!

    Just Pirouette and Carry On...

  9. I want to try cranberry cheese. I have never had it. Just this year, I converted to Gorgonzola liking. I used to hate it. Now I like it. Your autumn looks yummy (speaking of yumminess). And have you rooted out any stories from your genealogy? I love stories. Would be fun to read...

    Congratulations (and Thank You) on the Liebster honor! It was fun to learn more about you in this post. Lynaea @
