Liebster Blog Award

Sunday, June 24, 2012 with 5 comments

Wow! So awesome to have received my first blog award - the Liebster Blog Award! I am very thankful to the lovely blogger, Sarah, who nominated me over at Lace and Lavender Hints - please go give her a visit! And for those of you wondering, the Liebster Blog Award is an award given to upcoming bloggers who have 200 followers or less (like moi!). The word 'liebster' is German, and means "dearest" or "beloved," and I feel so honored to be thought of that way by a reader - I would like you all to know that I feel that way about you all as well!

So, here's the rules:

1) Each person must post 11 random facts about themselves
2) Answer 11 questions the tagger has given you, and give 11 questions for the people you have tagged
3) Choose 11 people and link them in your post
4) Tell them you've tagged them
5) Remember, no tag backs

5) I am trying to learn Mandarin Chinese, and have also been studying Japanese; because of that, I am also a bit of an Asian drama addict

8) I have always been in love with the Harry Potter series, and still daydream about going to Hogwarts all the time.
9) I probably watch too much TV for my own good.
