Liebster Award

How sweet!
I was nominated by two lovely ladies for the Liebster Award!

Now if you are anything like me, I said to myself

"What is a Liebster award?"

haha yeah. i'm clueless.

The Liebster award is given by fellow bloggers to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.

Less than 200 followers? Yup that's me!
There should be an award for people with less than 30 followers because that's me, too.

The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

The Rules
1. List 11 random facts about yourself.
2. Answer your nominator’s 11 questions.
22 in my case...
3. Choose up to 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers and ask them your own questions.
4. Inform your nominees of their award nominations.


11 Random Facts About Tristan
1. I cannot stand it when the volume level or temperature in my car/house is on an odd number other than increments of 5. Confused? Here's an example. The temperature in my car must be something like 70, 72, 74, 75, 76, 78, or 80. It absolutely can not be 71, 73, 77, or 79. I will freak out.

2. I really love my morning television...
Good Morning America, Kelly & Michael, The View...
But if I had a good shot I would totally kick Elizabeth Hasselbeck in the biscuit.

3. I love Honey Boo Boo Child.

4. I don't like feet. Other than my own, of course.

So here are the 11 questions from Brooke:
1. Would you rather see a movie at the theater or at home on DVD? Why?
