Liebster Award, Thanks to Ginny!

Ginny of My New Favorite Outfit

I’m super excited that Ginny of My New Favorite Outfit nominated me for the Liebster Award.  You should pop over to Ginny’s blog ASAP, well after you read this post.  Not only is she super stylish but she is my sister.  J I’m so excited that she started a blog; now we can ‘blog talk’.  And...I have big plans of dragging her with me to a Blog Conference in the very near future.   

Here's How it Works: The Liebster award is given by bloggers to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.

What is a Liebster? The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.
  1. Each person much post 11 things about themselves.
  2. Answer the questions the nominator made for you and also create 11 more questions for the blogs you nominate.
  3. Choose 11 people and link them to your post.
  4. Go to their blog and tell them the good news.
  5. No tag backs. 
11 Things About Me:
  1. I grew up in Wahoo, Nebraska, town of about 3,500 people.  Now living in Kansas City.  I think I’ll always be a mid-west girl. 
  2. Married to Jake for almost 5 years and I've loved every minute of it! 
  3. I am not a fan of high-fives.  They confuse me and I never know how to give the proper high-five. 
  4. You know those people that dress up in costumes to promote their business? Ya, they make me uncomfortable.  
  5. I always laugh if I see someone fall or trip, after I make sure they are okay of course.....and in turn I fully expect to be laughed at when I fall or trip.     
  6. I always volunteer to bring food for pot-lucks.  They are little pop-up holidays and should be enjoyed by all.  
  7. Baking is very relaxing to me.  It’s very soothing after a long day.  
  8. I hate folding whites, like socks and Jake’s under shirts.  They will sometimes stay in the laundry basket unfolded all week.
  9. I drink way to much Diet Pepsi and can hardly ever pass up a fountain pop.  
  10. I’m not good at making side dishes during the week.  I’ll make the main dish and just serve that.    
  11. I love going home to see our doggie Henry.  He’s always so excited to see me and play.
