Liebster Award... and the winner is ME!

Liebster is a German word meaning; sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

"What exactly is a Liebster Award?" Well adventurers I'm glad you asked. I am honored to accept this blogging award, it makes me feel like people actually read my blog! Basically, a blogger nominates other blogger for the award because they enjoying follow/reading their blog. It's an award that gets cycled around by bloggers, maybe you should just read the rules. I was nominated by the lovely Alice over at Adventure Into Domesticland who designed my blog and who is also a friggin' riot!
The Rules are Simple

1. Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, then create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to.
3. Choose 11 new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link them in your post.
4. Go back to their page and tell them about the award.
5. No tag backs.

7.  I love pizza.
8.  I love glitter and sparkles!!
9.  I am deathly afraid of clowns- like hyperventilate, tears flowing, screaming, must escape afraid.

Have fun ladies!


  1. You are so sweet! Thank you so much! I hope you are doing well.

  2. Congrats! And I enjoyed reading your facts and answers -- I feel like I know you a little better now. And thanks for passing the award on to me, you sweetie! I'll post it at some point next week if I can.

  3. I didn't know what Liebster meant, and I received one myself! This was a fun read.Thanks for sharing. It's nice to read about women who are big and have accepted how they look. It sometimes seems like we're hard to find.
