Encore! Another Liebster Award

Let me reiterate something from a previous post ......thank you everyone for following me and reading my blog. This has been an amazing experience and I absolutely love it.

I love, love, LOVE reading your responses and feedbacks to my various post and I absolutely enjoy corresponding with all the talented and amazing people that I have "met" in the blogosphere.

Although I've only been doing this for a short while, I can say this ~ it sure ain't easy, but, I love it!

Before I became a blogger, I never really gave it much thought. I didn't know what was truly involved, but now I'm learning.....posting takes a lot of thought and prep time and then if you're like me....some more thought and prep time, because I'm crazy like that.....and it's addictive.

I have to admit that blogging has taken over a good portion of my life and my poor husband is definitely getting a bit jealous of the amount of time and attention I seem to be giving Mac (my constant companion). So, that is something that I need to work to find a balance between life and blogging. If you're a blogger, how do you balance your schedule?

Of course, it doesn't help that I recently joined a few blog challenges (which I refuse to give up on)..... so life has been a little stressful ~ I'm trying to produce a poem a day using the alphabet as my theme.

Got any suggestion for a topic starting with "H"?

Anyhow, as someone who is still new to blogging, it's very flattering to know that my peers also like my blog. So, thank you Jess from The Wondering Brain for nominating me for my third Liebster Award!  I was recently nominated by two other blogs Second Chances Girl and Dina Farmer Photography. You can read my previous post to learn about the Liebster Award. Since I just recently participated in this, I will just go ahead and answer the questions from Jess. Here we go.....

What does your blog name mean? A Dose of Jules means just that ~ a dose of me....a bit of my thoughts. Since I'm a pharmacist, I thought it would be a nice play on words.... I guess pharmacy was good for something. ha!

What's your favorite day of the week? Friday, because that is one day that the kids have no activities after school and we can just hang.

Where do you find inspiration for your blog? Wow, everywhere....I get inspired from conversations that I have with friends, things I hear and read, music....the list is endless.

What's your biggest accomplishment? Raising three wonderful children

What song represents you? On Fire by Switchfoot

What's your favorite dish? Eggs Benedict....that's how I judge a diner....if I don't like your EB, I'm not coming back.

What were you in high school - jock, geek, or reject? Ahhhh....I was a pseudo-jocky-geek.....go figure!

Bath or Shower? Showers usually ~ and I take long hot ones, but if I really need to just relax, I will draw a bath.

How do you relax? I love to watch movies and a few TV shows

Wine or Beer? Neither, I'm a martini girl....I used to love French Martini, but right now I'm a Dirty Martini gal.

If you had an opportunity to succeed, what would it be? A writer.

Ok, you've just learned a few more things about me....lucky you! There's gonna be a pop quiz one of these days, so you better remember these answers. 

Thank you again for reading. Now, I've got to go and think.....I still need a poem for today....something with the letter "G".....hmmmmm

Oh, if you are a martini drinker, what's your favorite type?


  1. Congratulations! It's fun getting to know more about you. You're right: blogging can definitely take over your life. I think my husband feels the way yours does. :)

    Have a great Monday!

    1. Thank you :) I'm trying to get ahead, but it's not working. :(

  2. Topic starting with "H" to be a subject of a poem? You can't go wrong with heartbreak. Can you?

    1. Kim....I had heartbreak on my list, however, today's events gave me another poem. come back and visit, I will most definitely be doing a heartbreak poem ~ I have many melancholy thoughts on that subject! Thanks or stopping by.

  3. My husband made a comment the other day about me cheating on him with my blog's kinda funny, kinda not. I felt bad. Oh well. He still loves me!
    I've NEVER had a martini. I know, so weird. Love me my long island iced teas.

    1. ohhhhh Long Island Iced Teas are so yummy and so dangerous :) I'm trying to be good with the blogging....getting better ~ I think lol

  4. Hi Jules! H for Harried?
