Liebster Award

I have been nominated for the Liebster Award!
A little fact for you...Liebster means beloved in German. The purpose of this award is to share the blogging love. 
I received this nomination from Melinda Roworth from Table of 5.  
I suggest you stop on by her page as well, to see what she has to say and has been up to.

In order to accept this nomination, I need to answer a few questions about my blog. So, here goes:

1.How did you decide on the title of your blog, and what’s it about?
My blog is mostly inspired by my 3 daughters so I used their initials - Madison, Isabel, and Ava...I am there mom aka Mama aka MamaMIA.

2.Where does your blogging inspiration come from?
My daughters and my simple life style. I like to blog about everything I do for them, way I keep my house running, and just our every day life and how it all works.

3.Can you give 11 random facts about yourself?

Oiy - 11, that's a lot. Let's try this........ I am technically an only child but have 7 siblings. I lived in FL from 3-10 yrs. Other then that I am a Jersey girl!!!  I have known my husband for 17 yrs.  My oldest friend I have known for almost 30 yrs.  I don't like to drive highways and avoid them at all costs.  The house we live in is the first time I have lived in a house and not an apartment...I prefer apartment living. My daughters were all born within the first 15 mins. on a Friday morning. My oldest was born on my due date. I like to be schedule oriented...I freak out if I am 5 minutes late for anything.  I am trying to start a crafting business on Etsy, and although I am not getting sales, I am getting tons of good luck signs in my life.  (I don't know if that's 11 but I am drawing a blank now and done)

4.What is your favorite country, city or place you have visited?
I guess I would say up north in Maine and NH. Its where my husband is from. I would never want to move there, but it was nice to visit. (I posted a blog within the last week about our big trip there)

5.If money was no object, briefly describe the holiday you would take?
I would take my children to Disney World. But then the following week, me and hubby would escape to the Poconos or someplace woodsy with a lake and shopping. 

6.If you had 3 wishes, what would they be?

For financial wealth without being rich. For there to be a cure for my husbands MS. For my children to grow up happy and successful.

7.What is one country in the world you would like to visit? Why?

The UK - I have always wanted to visits England. I don't really know why.

8.What are you currently watching or reading?
Not currently reading, as I really don't have much time for it. I typically just watch reality shows...or whatever Nick or Disney show the girls are watching.

9.A long-lost relative leaves you a large sum of money. What do you do with it?

Depends on the amount, but moving and a 2nd new car would be high up on the list, AFTER I pay all my husbands medical debt.

10.What is something you do when you need to take time for yourself?

Just sit and watch TV shows I've missed or movies I want to see. My goal when I have time to do nothing is to do exactly that....NOTHING.

11.Where do you see yourself in five years time?
I am really not sure...I surprisingly don't have a plan for my life. And when you have family members who have ,medical issues, you kind of just live day to day, in the best way you can.
