Liebster Award

My day was made when I learned that my little blog was nomiated for the Leibster Award by Kortney at Give That Girl a Cola. She has such a precious blog with wonderfully creative crafts and ideas. (As in, go check her out!!!)

Give That Girl A Cola
I have been blogging on and off since last year, but began doing it regularly over the past few months. It has been so much fun linking to parties, meeting new people and reading all the fun and lovely things being posted. This is such a wonderful way for new/small bloggers to get a boost of self confidence. I love having the opportunity to nominate other bloggers like me!
About the Liebster Award:
The Liebster Award's origins are pretty much a mystery. Bloggers nominate other bloggers that have 200 or less followers. “Liebster” is German for “favorite,” so this is kind of like the “favorite blog award.” It's basically a "Hey, that's a sweet little blog you've got there. Here's an award!" You can't just accept the award. You have to play by the (ever changing) rules and pay it forward. Then you can put the award on your blog for all to see.

The Rules:

1. List 11 facts about yourself.
2. Answer the 11 questions given to you.
3. Create 11 new questions for the bloggers you nominate for the award.
4. Choose 11 bloggers with 200 or less followers to nominate.
5. Go to each bloggers page and let them know about the award.
6. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.

Here are 11 facts about me :
1. I am a total Harry Potter nerd...and get offended by other series.
2. I have conversations with my dogs, and talk back for them.
3. I wish my job could be hanging out with my husband all day.
4. Noises get on my nerves. (smacking, scratching, etc.)
5. I have the memory of a nat.
6. I disagree with almost everyone on House Hunters.
7. I've made it 26 years without doing karaoke.
8. I love a wide range of music.
9. I can rarely tell you who sings the music.
10. I love pulling over and following a random creek.
11. I hate doing laundry.

    Thanks for the nomination, so sweet of you!

  4. You are too sweet!! Thanks so much for nominating me!

    I busted out laughing at your comment about House Hunters! I am the same way! I would almost always choose a different house than the people on the show. Noises drive me nuts, too. Even the most simplest things like tapping can drive me crazy!!
