Liebster Award! Hooray!

Super exciting news! I was nominated for a blog award by my good friend Elana.
The Liebster Award is for blogs with up to 200 followers. The story goes that "Liebster" is German for kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, valued, cute, pleasant, endearing and welcoming. So I'm super excited to be offered this award from Room 334. Thanks Elana!!!

So here are the rules for the award!
1. Each person most post 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, and then create 11 new questions for the people you tag with the award.
3. Chose bloggers (with less then 200 followers) and link them in your post.
4. Go to their page and tell them about the award (social networks accepted).
5. If you have not done so already, follow the tagger and visit at least three nominees. Spread the love!
6. And remember, no tag backs! 

I forgot to add 11 random facts about myself...oppse! So here you go! (Thanks Elana for reminding me)

1. I love doing yoga but I am probably the most un-flexible person.

7. If I didn't have to have a job I would backpack across the 6 habitable continents.
