A Foreign Land | Liebster Blog

Ashley + Jason from We Loved Here. were kind enough to nominate me for a Liebster Blog award earlier this week. So in the spirit of community and self indulgence, I'm happily accepting the award and passing on the love today. 

The Liebster award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. What is a Liebster? The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

Here are the very strict rules for receiving this award:
1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves. (I'm skipping this one...)
2. Answer your assigned questions and create 11 new questions for the people you tag
3. Choose 11 people/blogs and link to them in your post.
4. Go to their page and tell them.
5. No tag backs!

My assigned questions:

1. What is your favorite cereal? Honey Nut Cheerios

2. How old were you before you stopped believing in Santa Claus? First Grade - is that old?

3. Who is your favorite author? I can't choose just one! Oscar Wilde, Malcolm Gladwell, Dave Eggers, David Sedaris, Bret Easton Ellis, Jhumpa Lahiri

4. If you could travel anywhere in the world and money was no object, where would you go? Why? I wrote a guest post about my Dream Vacation at Tomorrow is Another Day last year! My answer has DEFINITELY not changed.

5. If there was a zombie apocalypse and you had to choose between staying in your home with ample food, but little protection (meaning you don't have the supplies to board yourself in completely) or hitting the road with a full tank of gas, but very limited supplies, what would your coarse of action be? My dog is really, really horrible in the car, so I'm thinking I'd stick around home. Plus, I watch Walking Dead, it's tough on the road.

6. Favorite designer brand? Cop out. I have no answer to this one.

7. If you had to live in a decade other than the current one, which would you choose? There's something about the 1920s that really intrigues me.

8. Any current events capturing your attention as of late? Does Big Brother 14 count?

9. Sailboat or cruise ship? Cruise Ship FOR SURE. See the answer to #4

10. If you were Joey Potter, would you have picked Dawson or Pacey? Pacey - hands down. Not sure why she wasted ANY time with Dawson

11. Share your favorite summer color palette with us.
Tag, you're it!
