liebsteraward Liebster Award Nomination Aka: Blogging Love
So one of my newly-found favorite bloggers, Emily at Gathering Green, nominated me the other day for a Liebster award. I discovered her blog through a Greatist article and instantly took a liking to her because of our shared love for a certain little book of happiness :)

I had never heard of Liebster awards before this week, but I'm totally flattered that Emily thought of me and I'm happy to join the fun and play along!

For those of you also in the dark about Liebster Awards, here's the deal:

The Liebster Award is a survey to tag and promote the smaller bloggers in the blogsphere. Once you’ve been nominated, you in turn nominate other blogs to continue the trend.  After receiving the nomination each blogger must:

2. Share 11 random facts about yourself (see below)
3. Answer 11 questions the nominating blogger has created for you (see below)
4. Nominate 11 bloggers who have less than 200 followers.They should be bloggers that you believe deserve some recognition and a little blogging love.
5. Post 11 questions for the bloggers that you nominated to answer
6. Let all of the bloggers know that they've been nominated. You cannot nominate the blogger that nominated you.

11 Random Facts About Me

1. My family is HUGE.
2. I have zero desire to snowboard... like ever.
3. My teeth are extra prone to getting cavities. :(

5. I can read & speak Hindi.
6. My first dog's name was Boots. I named him that because his paws were white and he was black everywhere else.
7. My ancestry is primarily French and Swiss. Kudos to my mom for being such a great genealogist!
8. A couple of years ago, I had an semi-intense blonde highlighting phase. It was bizarre for me, but I loved the experiment.

11 Questions from Gathering Green

Planes, trains, or automobiles? I prefer travelling in my own car. I find a lot of happiness in riding with the windows down and sunroof open,  throwing on a pair of aviators and singing my favorite songs at the top of my lungs.
Ice cream or fro yo? I love the guilt-free factor of fro yo, plus it tastes amazing!
What is your favorite exercise/physical activity? (biking, running, hiking, etc) Running, but hiking is a close second.
Lake or beach?  Why? Lakes. I grew up on them!
What was one of your favorite toys growing up? My Geo Safari (nerd alert)

What is your favorite coffee or tea drink? Coffee with french vanilla creamer and a dash of cinnamon is one of my go-to beverages
What is your favorite day of the week and why? In the past, I've thought Friday was my favorite day (since it's the start of the freakin' weekend and all), but more and more I find myself loving quiet, relaxing Sundays.
Are you a morning or night person? Morning!
What is your favorite kind of granola bar? I'm not a fan of granola bars, I prefer to snack on raw fruits/veggies.
You’re going out to dinner, which type of restaurant would you prefer: Italian, Mexican or Chinese/Japanese? Italian. Pizza is my favorite food (and pasta ain't too bad either!).
