So this little tiny blog of mine got nominated for the Liebster blog award! Sweet Haley @ I Can Only Imagine nominated me! I have started blogging kind of regularly but this blog of mine is tiny and so it is super sweet to get an award! 
I am stealing the description of the award from Haley: The Liebster Blog Award is given to upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. The Meaning; Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome.
I really love blogging, it is a whole little world on the internet. I started my blog three years ago but only  started blogging consistently this past year. I have always loved people watching and the world of blogging kind of lets you people watch on a whole nother level. I love reading different bloggers posts and really being able to relate to someone I’ve never met! 
Well, so in order to get this award there are certain rules. 
1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves. 
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you've tagged to answer. 
3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post. 
4. Go to their page and tell them. 
5. Remember, no tag backs!
11 Things About Me
1.I am only child
2.I just graduated from LaGrange College and am going through the treacherous job search process
  1. I love sports but am completely unathletic. Anyone who knows me would say that “Elissa is a huge Duke Fan” is quite an understatement. 
  2. I am super self-conscious and confess the fact you don’t see many pictures of me on the blog is because I generally hate most all pictures of myself. I’m working on it!

10.I wanted to be an interior designer when I was younger and can’t wait to design my house one day! 
11.I am kinda anal when it comes to spending money. I hate spending money and even if I want something most of the time I just tell myself I don’t need to spend the money.
