Blog Awards

Nominated for the Leibster Award!


So this week Running After Ale was nice enough to nominate me for a Liebster Award.  Since I am still a blogging novice, I am unfamiliar with the awards, but I am so excited.

The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers to encourage them to continue their work.  What is a Liebster?  The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Below I’m nominating 11 other fantastic bloggers who should have a million followers because they are just so amazing, fun and informative. I can not tell how how much I have learned from other follow bloggers since I started blogging this year.

To the nominees: You must write 11 facts about yourself and then answer 11 questions that follow. When you are done nominate 11 other blogs and have them follow the same rules- 11 facts, 11 questions and 11 new blogs with less than 200 followers.

My Nominees in No Particular Order are:!/read/blog/id/23250689/

I had rotini with vegetarian bolognese sauce.

I’ll still volunteer and maybe become a board member.
