Leibster Award

Hello everyone I am so excited to do today's post so let's get started! :)

I was recently nominated for the Leibster award and couldn't be happier to participate in this little internet recognition! Thanks so much to Morgan @ Me and My House for the nomination. :) Morgan was a part of the Blog Every Day in May Challenge that I participated in and she is just one of the many awesome bloggers that I got to link-up with in May!

Here is a little bit about the Liebster award courtesy of Morgan's blog post on the whole affair:

The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. So, what is a Liebster?  The meaning: 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.

Here are the rules for receiving this award:
1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the questions that the tagger set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you’ve tagged to answer.
3. Choose 11 people to nominate and link them in your post.
4. Go to their page and tell them.
5. No tag backs!

Now that the scene is set, here we go!

11  random things about me:

1. I'm obsessed with Hello Kitty.
2. I used to be a wild child, but now I'm a homebody. 
3. I speak Spanish and Russian.
4. My dream is to master the fishtail braid.
5. I'm a black belt in Taekwondo.
6. I make sure to eat everything...TWICE, just to make sure.
7. You can always count on me to lose my chapstick.
8. I am addicted to working out and have to get my fix at least 6 times a week. I'm a freak, I know.
9. I can't cartwheel. 
10. I love to cook and am happy spending time in the kitchen.
