The Liebster Award

I was surprised when I got a comment from Jenn over at Hello. Guten Tag. (love that title) that she had nominated me for the Liebster Award!

A few things about the Liebster Award: 

It's an award for bloggers, by bloggers to recognize blogs with under 200 followers in efforts to get to know new members of the blogger community. 

I had no idea blogs could win awards to be honest...but this is pretty cool.  

Rules for those nominated:

1. You must post 11 things about yourself. This about getting to know each other!
2. Answer the questions that the nominator set for you. Answer honestly!
3. Create 11 questions for the people you nominate. Be creative!
4. Choose 11 new blogs to nominate & link them in your post. Sharing is caring!

Jenn's questions for me:

Do you like to do your nails , if so what colours do you mainly use?
I don't have the patience to do my own nails. I'm pretty terrible at waiting. But when I do them, or get them done, I usually only do French tip since it goes with everything.

Are you studying anything at the moment?
Not formally, but I do try to maintain my languages, so I study those [[nerd alert]]

Do you play any sports?
I did. As a kid I played every sport under the sun, volleyball in high school, and rugby in college. I don't have the schedule to accomodate practices right now, unfortunately, but I'd love to get involved with another rugby league.

On a lazy day what is your favourite thing to do?

What is your favorite smell?
Books: old, new, used, and all those in between.

What kind of cell phone do you have, would you change it?
I have an iPhone 4. I had a piece of crap before and after it broke four times, I decided to bite the bullet and get the iPhone. I haven't had a problem since.

Night or day person?
I'm a total night person. But I'm trying to be a day person.

Coke or Pepsi?
On the rare occassion I drink pop, I prefer Coke.

If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
I'm working on this, but I'm trying to stop getting upset over things out of my control. And if they are within my control, do something about it.

Dogs or cats?
Both! I'm a petsitter :o)

Are you a hockey fan? If so, what are your thoughts on the NHL lock out?
I am (go Avs!). I think it was a little selfish of them to hold up the league and fans for so long over money.
