My First Blog Award: Liebster

I was so excited when I got an email from Heather that I was nominated for my first Liebster Award!  Thank you so much, Heather!
From Here to There...

Here’s how it works:
The award is given to new or up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers and then the award is then passed along to other bloggers in the same category to help spread the word and support one another.
If you receive the award, there are a few rules to follow…

*Each blogger nominated must post 11 things about themselves
*Then answer the 11 questions the tagger has asked
*Blogger must then create 11 questions of their own to ask the bloggers they decide to nominate
*They must choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers to nominate and link them on their blog post
*Bloggers must be notified of their award!
*No tag backs!

11 Things about Me:

1. I've studied abroad twice in college: a summer in Luxembourg and a summer in Paris
2. I'm short... like short.  Only 5 feet tall - and I think I like it that way.
3. I'm an avid golfer and I work for a golf non-profit.  I can't imagine my life without the sport.
4. My parents brought me up on oldies and they are still my favorite music.  My first concert was Crosby, Stills, and Nash.  Since then, some of my favorite concerts have been The Beach Boys, Elton John, and Billy Joel.
5. I have 4 roommates: 3 guys and a girl, and I love it more than anything.
6. I like to sleep a lot.  Even with that many roommates, I'm known for falling asleep in the middle of living room at 9:30 on a Friday night.  I even fell asleep sitting on the kitchen floor once.
7. I love running half-marathons but I STINK at training for them.
8. I love all pasta [especially homemade].
9. My favorite room of a house is a kitchen.  I can't wait for my dream kitchen someday.
10. I have one tattoo [on my foot] and am planning two more [on my back and hip].
11. I love accessories, especially headbands. 

11 Questions from Heather:

1. What is your favorite vacation spot? Naples, FL or Disney World
2. What's your favorite childhood memory? Spending every day at the beach with my parents every summer
3. How many siblings do you have?  Are you close? A sister, well, not really, but we share the same last name - she's my best friend! How weird is it to have a best friend with the same last name??
4. Do you have any pets?  If so, what kind and what are their names? I have a cat, her name is Roxy. My roommate also has a cat named Merp. He and Roxy get along great.  I also have a 17 year old cat at my parents house, his name is Stanley - watch a hysterical video of him here
5. What's your favorite tv show? How I Met Your Mother... or Full House... or SVU
6. What's your favorite holiday and why? Definitely Christmas, I love decorating for anything, and I think you get to do the most of that with Christmas.  I also love shopping for people!

10. What's your least favorite chore? Folding/hanging laundry
11. What kinds of blogs do you enjoy reading the most? Ones with a little bit of everything... people who like to go on adventures, share diy projects, and have a funny/nonsense post every once in a while - lots of photos is a keeper for me too!
