Liebster Blog Award


So, I was looking at my comments this morning and I saw that I was nominated for a Liebster Award for newish/up and coming Bloggers who have less than 200 followers!  How awesome is that?!?
The idea is that people win the award and pass it on to other Bloggers who are in the same boat. My research - which isn't really mine at all since I copied the research rules from my nominator:) - tells me that the rules are;
  • Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.
  • They must also answer the 11 questions the tagger has set for them.
  • They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
  • They must then choose 11 bloggers to tag with less than 200 followers.
  • These lucky bloggers must be told.
  • There are no tag backs
Here we go...

11 Things about me:
  • I love soccer and played for over 20 years until my asthma and allergies flared up and stopped me for a while
  • I'm an advocate for advocates and love to help pepole have a voice for a cause
  • I'm a Christian - no where near perfect - but God loves me anyway
  • I have a very sarcastic sense of humor
  • I love to laugh and sometimes laugh at inappropriate times
  • I'm blessed to still have both sets of my grandparents living and in my life
  • Most of my family is from New Orleans and I love the Southern life
  • My "Person" and hubby (to be) is from NOLA as well and I love him so much
  • I have become a Pinterest addict over night
  • I'm hoping to have a baby by or before I turn 32
  • I played the Tuba in elementary just to be contrary :)
