Liebster Award!

I was recently nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Beauty and Babbling. She has a great blog that you should go check out. It was so nice of her to nominate me for this, thank you so much. So here we go...

The Liebster Award is for bloggers with under 300 followers and the rules of the award is that the nominee must link back to whoever awarded them, write 11 random facts about themselves, answer the 11 questions from the award giver, and then nominate another 11 bloggers and make up 11 questions for them to answer. It's a great way for new and undiscovered bloggers to meet new people, get more followers and find some blogs that they want to follow.
My Random facts

2. I have a very old but still a little crazy Dalmatian
