I’d Like to Thank the Academy…

I have been blessed to have been nominated for the Leibster Award by 1000kmstowindermere. Granted, I don’t get a statue or anything and this is just an award from the blogging community, but it still makes me excited.

First off, if I could borrow something from 1000kmstowindermere, the word Leibster comes from the German word “Liebster” meaning sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome.

So, what do I need to do?

1. Add the award icon to your blog
2. Link to your nominator to say thank you
3. Each blogger should post 11 facts about themselves
4. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you and create 11 questions for your nominations to answer
5. Choose 11 up-and-coming bloggers with less than 200 followers, go to their blog, and tell them about the award

So here goes.

Yay for me!
Yay for me!

11 Questions from 1000kmstowindermere
What’s your middle name? I don’t have one.
Did you have a teddy as a child? I did. I had a couple of Care Bears and I had a little rag doll that I absolutely loved and wouldn’t go to bed without.
What’s your normal Tuesday routine? Wake up, work from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., then head home and get on the bike trainer for usually 1 – 1 1/2 hrs then do a short run after.

    1. Thanks! I don’t even know if I remember any of my tap & ballet steps. Lol. I’ll do this for you though…one Wednesday for Wordless Wednesday, I’ll find pictures from the good ole days of tap & ballet and post them. You’ll get a good laugh out of them.
