I want to thank the lovely and talented Amber from And Then There Was Polish who has bestowed the honor of the Liebster Blog Award upon me! The gist of the Liebster Award is that it is given to your favorite blogs with fewer than 200 followers. Once you have received the award, you must give 11 facts about yourself, answer 11 questions, then pass the award on to 11 more blogs with fewer than 200 followers. Kind of a blogger chain, if you will. Fun, right? Here we go!
11 facts about me...
1. I love books. All books. Paper books, digital books, audiobooks. Love them all.
2. I played fast-pitch softball from ages 8-19.
3. I am 6 feet tall.
4. If I could, I would live off of peanut butter and chocolate.
5. I'm taking college ASL classes.
6. I hate wearing dresses, but love dressing my daughters in them. Cruel, huh?
7. I love to watch trashy reality shows like "The Hills" and "America's Next Top Model" while I paint my nails.
8.I love to take hot baths, but I'm too tall for most bath tubs.
9. I love the smell of apple blossoms. If you ever come across a soap that is apple blossom scented, let me know.
10.My kids are my life.
11. I love to play video games, though I haven't had much time to play them since having kids.
