1st Ever Liebster Blog Award!

I've never been nominated for any type of blog award - probably because I have so few followers.  But I was nominated by Christine at Hooah and Highchairs - how awesome!

The Liebster award is given by bloggers to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. 

So, what is a Liebster anyway? 

The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

And now for the rules:
  • Each person must post 11 things about themselves
  • Answer the questions that the nominator set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you’ve nominated to answer.
  • Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
  • Go to their page and tell them.
  • No tag backs!

Here are 11 things about me:
  1. I have a gorgeous daughter and wonderful husband
  2. I scrapbook everything - I worked in two different Scrapbook stores while in college
  3. I check Facebook every day - and then get bored when no one updates their status
  4. I love Harry Potter - I've been to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando 3 times and I am going back in February
  5. The song American Honey by Lady Antebellum is a perfect description of me growing up
  6. I work in social media - seriously my title is Social Media Strategist
  7. I DVR a different TV show every night
  8. My favorite TV show is The Vampire Diaries - I am in love with Damon
  9. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Journalism but the closet I've come to working for a newspaper was working for Gannett in their marketing department (Gannett owns the USA Today and a ton other local papers around the country)
  10. I love to travel - anywhere and everywhere, I've been all over the Caribbean and to many countries over seas
Here are the 11 questions from Christine:

  1. What did you have for lunch yesterday?
    I had pizza
  2. Who was your favorite band/musician in high school?
    Please don't judge me but my favorite group was The Backstreet Boys.  I had their posters all over my bedroom
  3. Are you willing to admit you sing in the shower and if so, what song do you sing most?
    I do sing in the shower but not very often. If I do it is usually some country song that is stuck in my head
  4. What is the kindest thing you did today?
    It's only 9:48 in the morning, so I'll say I got my  baby up and feed her this morning and let my poor, sick with the flu, husband sleep in
  5. Do you believe in soul mates?
    I do, and I married mine
  6. Name one thing you could never (or have a difficult time) forgiving someone for?
  7. Do you like to cook?
    I love to cook!
  8. Flintstones or Jetsons?
  9. Who is the most fascinating person you've ever met?
    My husband - trust me, he's fascinating.  And I've met celebrities like Rascal Flatts, Sarah Evans, Justin Moore, and Easton Corbin but I still think my hubby is the most fascinating!
  10. Do you reply to people who comment on your blog?
    I try to!
  11. What makes you smile?
