Liebster Blog Award

This morning I spent a large amount of time trying to figure out what I should be for Halloween this year (productive, aren't I?). Currently, I'm leaning toward the leg lamp from A Christmas Story because I think it would be hilarious and a pretty simple costume to make. Then I logged in on Blogger and saw that Grass and Lemonade had nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award! And the first thing that popped in my head was the scene from A Christmas Story when the dad receives the leg lamp and says "It's a major award!" I think that's a sign I should be the leg lamp.

Anyway, a big thanks to Grass and Lemonade for nominating me! I'm delighted that I got chosen. The Leibster Blog Award is an award given to bloggers by bloggers that have 200 followers or less. Basically, just a fun way to support each other and show some love for having a great blog. When you receive the award, you post 11 random facts about yourself and answer 11 questions from the person(s) who nominated you. You pass the award onto 11 other blogs (make sure you let them know you nominated them!) and ask them 11 questions. You are not allowed to nominate the blog(s) who nominated you. (To get the button, right click the photo on my page and save to your computer to post on your blog).
