Liebster Award!

We were nominated for the Liebster Award!


Thanks from all of us to Rachel @ A Perfection Called Books for nominating us.

Also, thanks to all of the great book bloggers out there who inspired us to make our own!

The Liebster Award was created to promote new bloggers and create friendships between bloggers. "Liebster" actually means "dearest" in German, for those language addicts out there.

Here are the rules:

1. Thank and link back to the blogger who nominated you (see above).
2. Display the award on your blog with pride (see the sidebar).
3. Write 11 random facts about yourself.
4. Answer the 10 questions from the blogger who nominated you.
5. Nominate 5-11 blogs who you think are awesome. Email or comment on their blog so they know they were nominated.
6. Make a list of 11 questions for the people you nominated to answer.

Since our blog is run by three individual people, we will have to do this a little differently. Tessa's answers will be in pink. Max's answers will be in purple. Cassia's answers will be in green.

Random Facts (emphasis on the random)
1. I'm double-jointed, so I can bend my elbows and knees backwards.
I used to play soccer until I realized that there is more to it than just not using your hands.
I love horses.
2. I can fit a whole Rice Krispies treat in my mouth (I know, my mom is so proud).
I love journalism.
I have never had a Jolly Rancher until about a week ago (it was awesome).
3. I cannot cook at all, but I'm slowly getting better. Slowly.
I am the only writer on this blog who can actually cook.
My definition of cooking and my ability is sticking something in the microwave and hope it doesn't blow up (it has happened before).
4. I'm a super picky eater.
The library is my sanctuary.
I like to read in the middle of nowhere, preferably mountains in the middle of nowhere.
5. I'm a huge procrastinator.
 I have never had Starbucks coffee. 
I play the viola.
6. I spend waaaay too much time on the internet.
I am trying to learn how to play the piano.
I take pride in answering all of Tessa's questions with quotes from musicals and having her slap me.
7. I have a twin sister and two younger brothers.
I love to sing, but I refuse to do so in front of other people.
I am the band geek that's not in band. So a music geek in general.
8. I've been told I tell the worst jokes ever.
I love doing volunteer work, especially at my local library.
 I hate when people mispronounce words like "library."
9. I'm a huge klutz.
I have the cutest dog in the world (she is a jug, a mix of a jack russel and a pug).
I will correct your grammar, whether I know you or not, even though I may not use correct grammar myself.
10. Iway ancay eakspay igpay atinLay.
Yo hablo espanol.
I am fluent in the language of music and musical geeks. Let's all just take a moment to say, "It's okay Erik! You can have me instead!" 
11. I'm really glad I don't have to think of any more random facts now.
I am excited that our blog has grown so much.
 I like to text in all caps when I'm excited and with about 100 punctuation marks. My reaction to Tessa texting me that we were nominated for this was "WHAT????????"
