It’s a weird word, huh? Well…not if you’re in the blog world. The word Liebster is German and means sweet, kind, nice, dear, beloved, lovely, kind, valued, and welcome. It is also an award. The Liebster blog Award is given out to up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers. (sweet, I’m up and coming! Booyah) Anywho, I was nominated by the oh so lovely Ariel over at On a Whim. (You should probably go check on her blog…its cute) Let’s just say when I read her post yesterday and saw I was nominated, I squealed. Squealed, people. I was a tad excited! Oh and a random little tidbit, the origin of this award in the Bloggy world is unknown….so secretive :p
Here are 11 fun facts about yours truly (My answers to Ariel's questions):
1. Whenever I go to Starbucks, I either order a Skinny Caramel Macchiato (with extra shots) or a Nonfat Latte…BUT my all-time favorite drink is the Pumpkin Spice Latte…can it please be fall already?!
2. I spent my 18th birthday up at school. My birthday is in September, so I’m one of those babies who started college at 17. I spent the day hanging with a few friends and then I was going to go to the dining hall and eat everyone (we had this tradition that we would all go eat together and then the birthday person got a slice of cake with a fake candle on top…because we’re classy like that) BUT, my sweet friends had something else up their sleeve. You see, my friend David had covertly asked what my favorite foods were a couple days before. I was told to meet in my friend’s building, only to find out that everyone cooked a meal of my favorite things!! I’m pretty sure I cried. It was legitimately the sweetest thing anyone has ever done. AND they all got me little presents that were inside jokes. I had only known these people for a little over two weeks and they already were like family :)
3. If I could travel anywhere, it would be Europe. I honestly don’t care where, I want to see so much. My ideal spots include Italy, Paris, London, Madrid, and the Holy Lands. It’s on my bucket list.
4. I don't know if I could pick one go-to nail polish color. I’m stuck between Sally Hansen’s “Slick Slate'” & “Coral Reef”…with Finger Paints “Vintage Velvet” as a close third. I kind of have an obsession with polish.
5. My all-time favorite comedy is “Legally Blonde” (I can quote the whole thing) but I think my favorite movie is “Big Fish”
6. I would never want to own a motorcycle…they scare me.
7. My current favorite Pandora Station is “Coffee Jambs” I’ve been listening to it non-stop.
8. My dream occupation is to be a pediatrician, but ultimately I want to hold the title of momma in my life. I always have ♥
9. My name came from Sarah in the bible and my middle name, Elizabeth, is my grandmother’s name. Fun fact: my dad, brother, and I all have SER initials. It was not an accident. (My poor mom is left out)
10. My biggest celebrity crush…hmmm, I’m not 100% sure on that one, although my mom and I are loving all of the Olympic eye candy ;)
11. My first kiss was in my then-boyfriend’s basement (that sounds creepier than it was) We were in 11th grade. It was kind of awkward (but the first kiss is supposed to be, right?)
