Liebster Award Nomination

Jess from Plucky’s Second Thought was sweet enough to nominate me for the Liebster Award! Sunnyside Shlee has always been a fun “thing” for me to do to interact with other people, learn more about crafts, travels, and much more – as well as to practice my love of writing. I haven’t focused so much on growing the blog into a business, but have enjoyed my readership and meeting new bloggers along the way! I can’t believe it’s been over 2 years since I started this little ditty and am excited to see where it all takes me!

The Liebster award is given to up and coming bloggers. 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 RULES FOR RECEIVING THIS AWARD:

  1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
  2. Answer the questions that the tagger 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. No tag backs!

11 Things About Me:

  1. I’m was raised in the city of Chicago – the actual city, not a suburb
  2. I’m a Twi-hard. I’ve read all of the novels and seen all of the movies.
  3. I’ve been to Las Vegas about 16 times before the age of 21 and only twice since turning 21 – both times have been for work not pleasure.
  4. I’ve asked Flavor Flav to move out of my way at the San Diego Zoo.
  5. My favorite band/singer is Dave Matthews Band. I’m in love and obsessed with all things DMB.
  6. I love the California life-style and if I had the choice, I’d move to California in a heart beat.
  7. I’ve played sports all of my life but quit basketball in fifth grade because there was too much running involved. I rejoined in 7th grade.
  8. I love pens and I regularly purchase pens and usually use a different one every day.
  9. I love Mexican food – I could eat it everyday.
  10. I won the spelling bee in 8th grade and went on to the Chicago regional competition where I lost on a letter that began with a C…I still can’t remember what word it was.
  11. I can quote the entire movie of Aladdin.


  1. What was the name of your first childhood pet? Goldie, the goldfish 🙂
  2. Where was your favorite vacation memory? Mexico my senior year of high school – it was an amazing trip with amazing people.
  3. Who is your celebrity crush? Rachel McAdams… I love her.
  4. What is the one addiction that you have that not many people know about? Maybe cracking my knuckles? I do it all of the time.
  5. If you could move anywhere in the world, where would it be? Southern California
  6. What came first: the chicken or the egg; why? The egg, maybe it evolved.
  7. Windows or Apple; why? Apple. Because everything Apple is a stellar piece of technology, whether you want to admit it or not.
  8. What was the first CD you ever purchased? Can’t remember. I used to steal my dads when I was younger so it all blurs together.
  9. What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done? The only thing that comes to mind is jumping into a water hole at the Mexico trip mentioned earlier – I’m terrified of unknown bodies of water and it was in a foreign country but I didn’t want to regret not doing it so I jumped in and freaked out the entire time til I got out!
  10. What did you want to become when you where young? A famous journalist or a teacher.
  11. What is the one goal you have for 2013? Be a healthier me in 2013 – I turn 30 and get married. It’s going to be a huge year!
