Liebster Award - For Realz??

Holy rusted metal, Batman, what a nice surprise! 

I just received word from Ann @ Marinewife22, that she has chosen my blog to be awarded a Liebster Award! I have never heard of this award, but I believe it is given to bloggers that have less than 200 followers, to help them expand their network and gain more readers. So in thanks to Ann, I'd just like to say, WAHOOO! Thanks so much girl, you rock! 

Also, big huge hugs to Jackie @ Five Two Certified for my second Liebster award!

And now, the rules:

  • Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves 
  • Each blogger should answer the questions the tagger has set for you.
  • Pick eleven new bloggers to award the Liebster award to and link them in your post.
  • Pick eleven new questions for the chosen bloggers.
  • Go to that bloggers page and tell them about the award.
  • No tag-backs.
