gettin' and showin' some love

Back in January, the lovely Samantha at Puppies Pearls & Problems nominated me for the Liebster Award. Obviously, I'm a little late in responding. But it is certainly not because I didn't appreciate it and think it was the sweetest thing ever. Thanks, Samantha!

 Liebster in German means dear, beloved or favorite, and is for bloggers with under 200 followers.
The rules are as follows:
1. Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog.
2. Link back to the blogger who awarded you.
3. Copy & paste the blog award on your blog.
4. Reveal your 5 blog picks.
5. Let them know you chose them by leaving a comment on their blog.
My choices for the Liebster Blog Award are:
  1. Trish at Trying To Do It Gracefully
  2. Shannon at You, Me and Baby G
  3. Sybil at Peace It All Together
  4. Melissa at Adventures of a 30-Something
  5. Brianna at Sophistifunk
My beloved blogger friends listed above were chosen because they all inspire me in one way or another and they're all new bloggers (less than 5 months).

Oh but I'm not done yet. Yesterday a fellow infertility blogger, Ali at Not All Dreams Are Free nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award. Thanks Ali!

 Here's how this one works:
  1. Link back to the blogger that awarded you.
  2. List 7 random facts about yourself.
  3. Give this award to 15 other bloggers.
  4. Let them know you've nominated them.
So, here it goes. Some random facts that y'all probably don't know about me...
  • I'm allergic to cats.
  • My first job was jumping large polystyrene airplanes in the middle of the mall (yes, I even wore a flight suit).
  • I'm quite addicted to pirate's booty.
  • I collect friends. My hubby says the only qualification to be my friend is to have a pulse. Totally not true! You need to have a pulse AND be nice.
  • My fave coffee drink is a tall, nonfat, decaf, extra-hot soy latte from Starbucks (it's a mouthful)
  • Running is not my forte but I force myself to do it on occasion.
  • I wasn't always a Cali girl. After college, I lived in Maryland and Boston.
And for the nominees...can I get a drum roll, please?
  1. Tracy at Then I Got To Thinking...
  2. Kristin at Live, Laugh, Frappy
  3. Valerie at Along the Way with V & J
  4. Daina at New York State of Mind
  5. Renee at This Won't Hurt A Bit
  6. Jess at Two Smuppies
  7. Shanna at Because Shanna Said So
  8. Katie at For Lauren and Lauren

Thanks so much for the award and have a great weekend! Cali girls, always and forever :)

Ali @ Not All Dreams Are Free said...

What do you mean 'jumping polystyrene airplanes'? I'm picturing you either a) leaping over these large planes or b) actually, I have no b. And where did these airplanes go to? This is all very intriguing to me, you see!!!
