Leibster Award!


Egg Yolk Days was nominated for a Leibster Award by More-Sprinkles.com (an awesome blog you should check out!) I didn’t know what it was, but fortunately the lovely Erinn explained in her blog tagging us. Here is what she said:

“A Liebster Award is a traveling award that is awarded to new bloggers with less than 200 followers. Those nominated then pass the award on to 11 other bloggers who also have less than 200 followers.”

Since this blog is also my grandma’s, all the answers will be from the both of us!

Here are the rules for the nomination.


  1. Post eleven facts about yourself.
  2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you and create eleven questions for people you’ve nominated.
  3. Choose eleven people (with fewer than 200 followers) to give this award to and link them in your post.
  4. Go to their page and tell them.
  5. Remember, no tag backs.

    Thank you so much for nominating me! It’s fun to find out a little more about you, I hate snakes too. Yuck! xx


  3. A Lavendar festival? That sounds so fun! Thanks for nominating me, as well 🙂

    • itselliewellie says:

      Your welcome! I love your blog. I’m always glad to read your posts!

      • Yours too 🙂 But really, what is the lavender festival like? It sounds so interesting!

      • itselliewellie says:

        Oh! It is amazing. Basically there is this island a few hours away from where I live and once a year they have a giant festival themed around lavender. There are tons of booths that sell lavender products from local farms, art, and stuff like that. You get to drive around to family owned farms and do u-pick lavender or buy bushels to take home. It is beautiful.

      • That sounds absolutely amazing. Which island, so I know for visiting purposes?

      • itselliewellie says:

        It is! It is in Sequim, WA. Here is a link (its a big deal, heh)


      • How nice! Well, I do plan to go to Washington someday (I`ve spent so much time in the East Coast`s, I figure I need to know it`s sister state!) so I`ll be sure to drop into such a lovely event.
