Liebster Blog Award

Sweet Jessica over at her new blog Preppin' Postgrad gave me this award! Blog awards are always so much fun, don't you think? I love that this one is for up-and-coming blogs, that's an awesome idea! So thank you so much, Jessica! 

The Rules.
1. Choose 5 up and coming blogs to give the award to
2. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
3. Post the award on your blog
4. List the blogs you have awarded with their links, and leave a comment notifying them
5. Share random facts about yourself

Here are my 3 nominees (I shortened it because I'm so exhausted, but I really love these 3!)

  1. A+C of The Kennedys Amongst the Kardashians (such sweet girls, and their blog is so high-quality!) 
  2. Danielle (my partner in crime!) at Classically Dan 
  3. Coral at Keepin' Up with Coral (your blog is so you, I love it!) 
Some random facts about me: 

  1. My favorite type of  candy (besides chocolate, which is more of an addiction) is the little raspberry and blackberry candies. 
   2. I'm always addicted to some show on Netflix. Currently, it's United States of Tara, but my   favorite of 2012 HAS to be Grey's Anatomy.

3. I hoard nail polish. I'd photograph my collection, but it's hard to even see how much I've got right now in the box I store them in. 
If only my collection were so organized...
4. I'm afraid of ketchup. No photos because I don't really want a ketchup photo on my blog.

5. My favorite flowers are poppies because of a flower fairy book I had as a kid. I loved the poppy fairy best. The illustrations were by Cicely Mary Barker. 

6. I love reading poetry for fun. One of my favorite poetry collections is The Cinnamon Peeler by Michael Ondaatje. 

7. I go to school in my home city, and I LOVE it. 

8.  I pretty much always order the same sandwich at Which Wich and it's basically perfect: Egg & Bacon with Avocado and Mayo! 
9.  I've had monkeys and parrots on my shoulders! I went to a nature park in Roatan, Honduras.
10.  I met my best friend on the bus in 6th grade, and we've had countless adventures since. 
This is Jenny and me in front of a piece of the Berlin Wall in DC at the Newseum. 
So those are 10 random facts about me! Thanks again for the award, Jessica! 



  1. You are very welcome! I am jealous of your trip to Honduras and the monkey/parrot/wildlife time.

  2. Oh my gosh, thank you! I'll get to posting about this ASAP.

    #7 is a big deal and I could not be happier for you <3

    But you've gotta tell me what's up with ketchup...
