The Liebster Award and 107 Posts Later

Between living life and enjoying pumpkin flavored everything I did not even celebrate post #100! So here I am celebrating #107 and being nominated for The Liebster Award by Emily Ann from Sincerely, Emily Ann. If you haven't checked her blog yet you should probably hop over ASAP. She shares the same excitement for the small things in life that I do, and has a great eye for fashion if I say so myself!

So here I am 8 months later still writing and sharing my excitement for life. I never knew that Linens and Leggings would become part of who am I like it did. This blog has made me enjoy the small things more than I ever thought possible and pushed me to try new things. I hope at the end of the day I make one person smile or laugh, or bring inspiration to other bloggers who share this community with me.  Linens and Leggings has been such a fun journey and I love sharing my excitement for life with you all. Thank you everyone for your support along the way and it's growth since that very first post.

And now on to the Liebster Award (which I am still in awe that Linens and Leggings was nominated) :

The Liebster Award is given to newbie bloggers by other bloggers as a way to support and promote each other in growing our blogs. If I haven't said how much I love this community, well I love this community of bloggers and thank you again to Sincerely, Emily Ann for the nominee.

The Rules
1. Post your award to your blog.
2. Answer the questions that you were given from the person who nominated you.
3. Nominate a few new bloggers you've discovered.
4. Create 10 new questions for the nominees.
5. Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to their blog.

Answering Emily Ann's Questions 
1. What inspired you to start your blog? I love to share my life with others and have always been known as quite the talker. I have always had a motto of "life is exciting so why not share it?". Well after some encouragement from friends and family Linens and Leggings had its first post on February 9th. Ever since then I look forward to trying new things or sharing my experiences with others.
2. What is your favorite fall trend? I am loving the boho look this fall but Flared jeans are my favorite! Anything that gives you long, lean legs is amazing in my book.
3. Name 3 artists/bands that would make up your dream concert. Well Taylor Swift would be #1 because I am a total #Swiftie. Mix in Spice Girls and Miranda Lambert and we have a total Girl Power line up. Does that make me cliché or a lover of a little of everything? By the way in the midst of writing this post I discovered that Taylor and Miranda performed together.
4. If you had to choose one store to spend $5,000 at, what store would it be? This answer may age me but I would totally go to Restoration Hardware. Doesn't every 26 year old dream of a new bedroom suite?
5. What blogger has inspired you the most? Every time Living in Yellow posts I get so excited. Erin from Living in Yellow will have you laughing but inspired all at the same time. Plus she loves a good cocktail like I do!
6. Favorite TV show of all time? Friends, duh! Those six characters taught me everything I need to know in life.
7. What are your top 3 book recommendations? Anything in the Shopaholic Series by Sophie Kinsella, What Would Jackie Do by Shelly Branch & Sue Callaway, and The One & Only by Emily Griffith
8. What do you love most about where you live? I have the travel bug and Birmingham is so close to everything. In a few short hours I can be in Nashville, Atlanta or the beach.
9. What is your ultimate travel destination? I have always said that before I turn thirty I will go to Italy. Right now I am in the works of planning out this trip and making it a reality.
10. What would be your perfect Fall day? What activities would it include? A perfect Fall day would be in Auburn, Alabama tailgating on a beautiful Fall day. Auburn is called the Loveliest Village on the Plains for a reason. A Bloody Mary and Pig in a Blanket would be the icing on the cake.
