Liebster Award!


UPDATE: (April 10, 2013)
I was recently nominated for this award again by Daniela at Pretty Elements.  I am going to include her questions at the bottom of this post as well.

Danielle at SewMuchCrafting nominated me for the Liebster Award!  I'm excited for this opportunity to share some more about myself and my blog.

The Liebster Award is given by bloggers to bloggers who have less than 200 followers.  I found it hard to look at the number of followers given all the different ways we connect these days (Facebook, Google+, Twitter, etc.) but I know you'll like who I've found to pass along the award.

Here are the rules:
1) Each blogger should answer the questions the tagger has set for you.  
2) Choose eleven new bloggers to pass the award on to and link them in your post.
3) Create eleven new questions for the chosen bloggers.
4) Go back to their page and tell them about the award.
5) Each blogger should post eleven random facts about themselves.
6) No Tag Backs!!!

Here are the questions from Danielle:
{1} What's your favorite thing about blogging?  I love finding fun, new blogs to follow.  I'm always finding new inspiration!
{2} Where did you last go on vacation?  I went to Austin, Texas to visit my best friend from childhood.  It is an awesome city, I love visiting her!

{3} What's your favorite color?  yellow

{4} Do you prefer coffee or tea?  This is a hard one since these are the only two things I drink besides water.  Mornings would be coffee almost black.  After breakfast, iced tea.   Hot tea in the evenings when its chilly. 

{5} Mountains or coast?  Coast
