An Award? For Me? The Liebster.

A huge thanks goes out to Glynis at Librarian Girl for giving me a Liebster Award!

I've been watching these awards make their rounds of the blogging world and crossing my fingers to get one someday!

Liebster Awards are for bloggers who have less than 200 followers. The word "liebster" is German and apparently means kindest, dearest, valued, cute, etc (at least that's what Glynis said.... and I trust her.... she's a librarian).

The rules for accepting the award are:

1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.

2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you and create 11 new questions for the people you have tagged.

3. Choose 11 people (with less than 200 followers) and link them in your post.

4.Go to their page and tell them about the award (social networks accepted).

5. If you have not done so yet, follow the tagger and visit at least three nominees.

6. Remember, no tag backs.

Here are 11 things you're just dying to know about me.
1. I'm an only child. My family is tiny but wonderful. R's family is large and wonderful, so I really have the best of both worlds.
2. I like to name my cars. First I had Cecilia the Celica. Now I have Izzy the Impreza.
3. I can twirl my arms 180 degrees when they're hanging by my side, but I learned in physio school that it's not so good to do that.
4. I could watch the Penguin Cam at Seaworld all day long, and I often tune in for a few minutes if I'm having a bad day. I dare you to watch it and not laugh.
5. I had no idea how to style my curls until I was about 25 years old. I used to get perms in high school (hey, it was the 90's) because I had no idea my hair was this curly.
6. I find white shirts and jeans to be one of the most attractive things a man can wear.
7. I didn't even like wine until I lived in Australia. Now, I love it.
8. I once took a 58 hour train ride.
9. I'm a true Nova Scotian and love to eat lobster. I prefer if someone cracks the shell for me.
10. I can't snap my fingers.
11. I'm scared to buy clothes on-line in case they don't fit and I'd have to pay to send them back.

Here are the answers to the 11 questions I was asked by Glynis at Librarian Girl.
1. What was your childhood nickname, if any? I was Jennie until I was six, and then my mom's best friend bought a German Shepherd and named it Jennie. I refused to be called Jennie after that.
2. What is your favourite colour? It changes constantly. Today, cobalt.
3. What inspired you to start a blog? I wanted to get my name out there as I'm trying to get agent representation for my first novel. I quickly realized that I had way more to say about fashion and lifestyle than writing.
4. Do you have a favourite film? What is it? I don't really have a favorite, but if I need a "pick-me-up", I'll throw on Blue Crush.
5. Have you ever done anything scary, such as skydiving? I did a Canyon Swing in NZ. It's the same as a bungee but you swing back and forth at the bottom instead of rebounding.
6. What's your favourite city? Sydney, Australia.
7. Something you are proud of. My education.
8. What are your vices? Nachos, chocolate, Drumstick McFlurries
9. Heels or flats? Flats
10. Can you play a musical instrument? I played the clarinet for one year when I was 11.... so no.
11. What's your favourite sandwich? Lobster
I'm passing the Leibster on to these eleven great bloggers:
Life is Reediculous
Rose Mode
Chicfully Yours XOXO

A lot of the above people are ones who I've received lovely comments from. Your time spent networking is very valuable! Thank you so very much for taking the time to visit my blog.

My list of questions for my chosen eleven are:
1) What's a quirky fear of yours?
2) How long have you been blogging?
3) Who is your hero?
4) What's your favorite shade of lipstick or gloss?
5) What is your favorite season?
6) Do you subscribe to any magazines?
7) What is one place you really want to travel to?
8) Household chore you hate the most?
9) Are you an early bird or a night owl?
10) What's your favorite reality show?
11) What store would you like to get a $1000 gift card for?

Wow.... that took a long time.... but it was so great to pass along this award to deserving bloggers and do some networking by visiting new blogs!
