Jennifer at Simply At Home Mom honored me last week with a nomination for the Liebster award. That is precious! It really is an honor when other new bloggers notice you! The award must go to blogs with less than 200 followers and is a way to help blogs get new followers.
So, there are rules to this whole deal and they are as follows:
1. Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, then create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to.
3. Choose 11 new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link them in your post.
4. Go to their page and tell them about the award.
5. No tag backs.
1. I have a ton of gray hair. Really, I think I may be almost totally gray if I quit coloring my hair.
2. I am always the one in the room that will accidentally say the most inappropriate thing.
3. I have 5 older brothers and sisters.
4. I am a big tech nerd. I love anything that involves technology and I am kind of the "go to" person for questions in my office.
5. I really am 41. Really. People don't usually believe me and that is a huge compliment.
6. My children all have birthdays in September.
7. I have one tattoo.
8. I am such a homebody. It's my happy place, after all!
9. I rarely am willing to pay full price for any item of clothing or home decor item.
10. I used to be extremely shy, and it still creeps up on me from time to time.
11. I attended the University of Texas at Austin.
