And the award goes to...

This weekend I received the Liebster Award from my friend Lara Ellen over at Living Like LaLa!  This award given to new bloggers who are trying to get their name out there in the blogger world.  I was unaware that there were awards out there for bloggers so I think this is super fun.  If you're wondering what this Liebster business is all about, here are the rules:

This award is given to new or up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers...the award is then passed along to other bloggers in the same category to help spread the word and support one another.  

1. Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, then create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to.  
3. Choose 11 new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link them in your post.
4. Go back to their page and tell them about the award.
5. No tag backs.
