Liebster Award


Wow! I am just so thrilled that people are recognizing and enjoying my little blog I’ve got going on here! I was nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award and now the Liebster award! Berryduchess nominated me last week and I am finally getting around to putting this post together. I want to thank her and thank Faithful Homesteader for her nomination as well! So I guess that I will be answering 22 questions today instead of 11! 🙂

Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Isn’t that sweet? Blogging is about building a community and it’s a great way to connect with other bloggers and help spread the word about newer bloggers/blogs.

  • Post the award on your blog.
  • Thank the blogger who presented this award and link back to their blog.
  • Write 11 random facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 11 bloggers who you feel deserve this award and who have less than 200 followers.
  • Answer 11 questions posted by the presenter and ask your nominees 11 questions.

11 Random Facts About Me

  1. Like so many others, I love The Walking Dead. The only thing is… I am terrified of zombies. I have always said that I would probably be the first to die if a zombie apocalypse were to actually happen. I have even gone so far as to give my friends permission to leave me behind in this event.
  2. I am moving back in with my parents next month (mostly to save money) and I cannot wait. I am so excited to be living with my family again and seeing them every day.
  3.  Moving back home means that I will be living significantly further away from my current job. Which means that I will need to find a closer one to home, sad day.
  4. I want to be able to afford to take/send my parents on vacation one day.
  5. I always want a nap, like it’s pretty bad. Sometimes I dream about being a koala, they sleep for up to 22 hours a day! That’s the life man!
  6. I am thinking about foregoing a trip I had begun planning for 2016 in order to save and prepare to teach English overseas.
  7. I just cleaned out over half my closet last weekend and I still feel like I have too many clothes. Although, I can’t decide what else to get rid of.
  8. I used to have a thing for heels. While I was in college I probably owned around 15 pairs of heels alone. (YIKES!) I don’t go out/get dressed up as often now, so I only own about 5 pairs.
  9. When I was in Paris our group decided to eat at a Mexican restaurant one day. It was awful, and I’m not just saying that as someone that is half Mexican. It just wasn’t good. So consider my lesson learned, I will only be sticking to local foods!
  10. Speaking of Paris, I got about half way up the Eiffel Tower and still regret not waiting in line to make it to the top! The line for the ride down was incredible long as well, so we took the stairs! Leg cramps for days!
  11. I did my first ever tequila shot in Rome. At a bar called Twins, that was owned by twin brothers. I didn’t know what I was doing but wanted to seem cool, so it went something like tequila-salt-lime and then a really confused Laura as to why it wasn’t as great as everyone said. (For the record, I love tequila. It was just a weird order to taste everything in.)
