Liebster Awards

Hello All!  It has come to my attention that my lovely friend Haley has nominated me for a Liebster Award.

Here's the rundown of what that means (according to Haley's blog): "The Liebster Award is for blogs that have 200 followers or less. The word "Liebster" is German for kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, valued, cute, pleasant, endearing and welcome. It's a great opportunity to meet other bloggers and gain more followers." 

I am very excited because A) I get to meet new bloggers. B) It is such a sweet recognition. C) It is in German. And as you know, Germany is my family's Old Country and blog namesake!

Here's how you play along!
1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you. 
3. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag with the award. 
4. Choose 11 bloggers (with less then 200 followers) and tag them in your post.

1) Eleven Random Things About me: 

2.  As a kid, I never went to Disney World on a family vacation. But we did dig for fossils — both of my parents are geologists. 
3. I have eaten raw cow ... Yep, it's a Lebanese delicacy called Kibe Nia.  I am Lebanese and a great-aunt made me try it at a family reunion.
4.  I swam with Manatees once.
5. In Junior High, I was on a breakdancing/hip-hop team. lolz
6. I also used to highlight my naturally black hair blonde-ish ...
