Liebster Award


Last week Angela @ Nutty for Life nominated me for a Liebster Award! Thanks Angela for the nomination! I’m super excited! I hope you check out her blog…it’s pretty great!

LiebsterAwardEssentially, the Liebster Award is a fun survey to get to know and acknowledge some of the blogs with few followers. Once you’ve been nominated, you pass the award on to other blogs. Here’s how it works:

After receiving the nomination, the blogger must:

  1. Acknowledge the nominating blogger;
  2. Share 11 random facts about yourself;
  3. Answer 11 questions the nominating blogger has created for you;
  4. List 11 bloggers who have less than 200 followers (as best as you can tell based on the info provided!). They should be bloggers that you believe deserve some recognition and a little blogging love!
  5. Post 11 questions for the bloggers that you nominated to answer; and
  6. Let all of the bloggers know that they’ve been nominated.  You cannot nominate the blogger that nominated you.

Okay…let’s get started. :-)

  6. Thanks for the nomination! I agree with you, I much prefer warm weather. If I could be any animal I would be a dog, more specifically I would be my grandma’s dog. She spoils her dog more than I do Bentley and is retired now so she gets to be home with her dog all day.

  7. Thanks so much for the nomination. I really appreciate it!!
    I agree the beach is where it’s at, kitty’s are the cat’s meow (pun intended), and books are badass. I love to read too and just finished the third book of The Hunger Games series.

  8. Can you share a typical full day of eats ? And your recipe for breakfast smoothie?

  9. Thank you so much for nominating me Holly!! I’m so happy. It was fun to read all the facts about you :).
