I'm blushing over here.

Popping in for a Saturday post to express my gratitude to Robin & Ashley for choosing to honor me!

I'm so thrilled and surprised!  I adore this little award because it shines on us "smaller" blogs that have still made a footprint in the blogosphere.  The low-down on the Liebster goes like this:

  • Choose five up and coming blogs to give the Liebster award to.  Blogs must have less than 200 followers
  • Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
  • Post the award on your blog. 
  • Don't leave your recipients in the dark! List the bloggers you gave the award to with links to their sites.  Leave a comment on their blogs to let them know. 
  • Share 5 random facts about yourself!
Thanks again to 333 Miles, with love... for thinking of me!  I'm still so tiny over here at Skinny Jeans that I don't even have a button (don't worry...I'm working on it!)!

Time for me to share my blog love!

Now you need to know 5 completely uninteresting randoms:
  1. I'm obsessed with Law & Order.  I have it on in the background as I type.
  2. Even though I have two cats + two dogs, I'm unofficially allergic.  My eyes get all itchy and my nose stuffy when I get too much pet hair near my face.
  3. I'm also unofficially diagnosed with asthma.  It's a real bitch for working out.  I have to use an inhaler before every physical activity.  This gets really annoying when keeping up with an inhaler and annoying financially (those things are expensive!).  Also, I think the asthma is allergy-related.
  4. I might drink a lot of good (ie. quality and craft) beers, but I'm not opposed to a light, "crappy" beer when I am sitting at home alone.
  5. I've been to Asia...Cambodia specifically.  I was a junior in high school when my family travelled there to adopt one of my sisters.  It was truly a life changing experience.  It sparked my love for children and social work.
And there ya go!  Now go give some shout outs to those "baby" blogs.  I swear I'm always 10x more likely to follow a blog that has a little blog following because I want to support them!

Thank you!! So nice!! & as far as your 5 random things....who isn't obsessed with law and order? I try to never put it on bc if I do I won't be able to turn it off. I've recently become absolutely OBSESSED with investigation discovery!! It's out of control!

Also, soo cool that you've been to Cambodia...isn't it weird how a trip like at can change our lives? I went to costa rica when I was 18 to study abroad and that literally changed my life to the point that I majored in spanish and now am a Spanish teacher in the south Bronx! Couldn't've seen that one coming!! Hahah!

Law and Order... YES!! But which one?? Regular? SVU? Criminal Intent?

Just so you know, there are two right answers and one wrong answer.... :)

i've always wanted to go to Asia! I bet it was amazing!

Anna said...

Oh my goodness -- You are TOO sweet!! Thank you SO much for honoring me with this sweet award. :) I love the support of the blogging community!

And I have to agree with your #3 -- I drink a lot of good quality craft beers too, but can't resist a bud light lime on a hot summer day every once in a while... haha!

I have sports-induced asthma, too, and I use an inhaler before every work out as well. Sucks! And I'm all about the quality beers . . . and kind of a snob about the crappy ones. But I like light, wheat beers the best!

I've been to Asia to! To China (Beijing). Wild experience.
