Hey guys! So I was lucky enough to receive the Libester Award (not to be confused with the Lobster Award, which it keeps autocorrecting to) from two different bloggers! Both McKenna and Shelby nominated me for this award and I’m super excited to take part in it 🙂
The Libester Award is basically a shout out to all the newbies of the blogging community. Different bloggers will tag you to this and will ask you to answer a few different questions. Because I was lucky enough to be nominated by two different bloggers I answered a few of each of their questions:
1.How did you decide on the name of your blog and what is it about?
-Hmmm, I remember when I first started my blog I wanted the name to be “The Greener Bean” but apparently that was taken by someone else!? #rude. Anyways sincerelykenz was just my second choice, I guess, because I figured not too many people have the name Kenzie. Kinda lame reason I know.
2.When you were younger what did you want to be when you grew up?
-May be wrong, but I think I’ve always wanted to be a teacher! I used to always go to my mom’s classroom with her when I was younger and I think it just began from there?
3.What is your favorite Holiday and why?
-My birthday, duuuuuh! I love birthdays, I think they’re awesome and they make me super happy. I LOVE how most companies/stores give you free things on your birthday; whether it is a free sundae or any type of coupon; I’ll take anything I can get. Birthdays are awesome because they’re days when you’re the center of attention, and you get a bunch of free stuff …. what more can you ask for?!
4.What surprised you most about blogging?
-Hm, maybe the fact that it’s such a big community? I never knew so many people blogged, but from the HerCampus community and the bloglovin’ community, boy has my opinion changed. Sooooo many people blog and I honestly had no idea!
5.Give us 10 Random facts about yourself.

6.What inspired you to start your blog?
