My First Liebster Award!!

A few days ago, I was nominated for a Liebster Award by Chrisie at Fingers and Toads. For only having just started, and having 9 followers, this is pretty exciting! The Liebster Award is given to new bloggers with less than 200 followers. It was really interesting to find out how it originally started and to see how much it has changed over the last couple of years or so.

Here is how it works!

1. Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.
2. They must also answer the 11 questions the 'tagger' has set for them.
3. They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
4. They must then choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers and tag them in their post.
5. These lucky bloggers must then be told.
5. There's no tag backs.

Here are 11 things about me!

1. I REALLY AM 30!!!
2. I've been married for almost 7 years.
3. I have 2 kids.. Jessica is 6 and Eli will be 2 next month!
4. I was in the US Army briefly. I say briefly because I didn't even make it out of Basic Training.. LOL
5. I love to read! My book collection is way bigger than my nail polish collection.
6. I lived in Canada for almost 2 years.
7. I don't mind doing laundry, I just hate folding it, hanging and putting it away.
8. My toes are naked!
9. I start Christmas shopping for the kiddos a few months early. I'm not one to wait for Black Friday to snag some good deals. I'm of the belief that if you do smart shopping throughout the year, you can find good deals on stuff and not have to deal with the crowds and limited stock.
10. I have 7 plants sitting on the very top of my desk.
11. My bedroom is a disaster area. See #7. Everything is in baskets and hampers!
