Liebster Award

Liebster Award Blog Pink Button
First thing first I want to thank Haydon's MommyGabriel's Mommy and Tossie's Mommy for nominating me for the Liebster award and passing the award on to my blog.

Honestly I had to Google about it making sure it's for real and not a spam that was just posted randomly by a machine because the comment  came one after the other but guess it's a real thing. 

I found that Liebster Award is like a cross between a chain letter and an award given by bloggers to bloggers; ("Liebster" is a German word and it means sweetheart, beloved person, darling) Yey!! ♥♥♥

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. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you.
2. 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.
Again, I appreciate the the nominations -- and I'm happy to answer questions from...
