2 May


This morning I woke up to a notification from surprisemama letting me know that she nominated me for a Liebster Award.  The Liebster is my first time being nominated for ANYTHING let alone, for my blog!  My morning has totally been made, as I spent the night in lactose intolerance hell (rotel dip is not my friend!).

Before we all break out the champagne and I quit my day job (I’m FAMOUS now, lol), lets talk about what a Liebster is.  The Liebster Award is an award for up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers.  You also are supposed to pay it forward by nominating 11 up and coming bloggers as well.  I like this idea, because it gives bloggers who don’t have a large audience and platform and a chance to grow their readership.  I also get a chance to share some facts with you about myself, so let’s go!
