Liebster Award!

So, I've been neglecting blogging lately... SO sorry!!  

Today I logged on and found a wonderful surprise waiting for me. Steph has nominated me for a Liebster Award (: as well as my sister.  Truly, this made my day!

I've seen posts about the award floating around on different blog sites but I didn't expect to be nominated myself.  If you haven't heard, the Liebster is a sort of honorary award passed around to bloggers with under 200 followers.  

Here are the rules (which I stole from Steph's post!)

Liebster Rules

1. Each blogger should answer the questions the tagger has set for you.
2. Choose 11 new bloggers to pass the award onto and link them in your post.
3. Create 11 new questions for the chosen bloggers.
4. Go back to their page and tell them about the award.
5. Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.
6. No tag backs!

Here are my nominees
Helena from Seaside Beauty
Renaaye from Miss. Renaaye.
Lizzie from ssycophant
Catherine from Chic. Classy. Cheap
Aynur from Filthy Fashion
Sarah from Sarah-Lou xoxo
Candance from just a dream.
Lex from Lex's Wonderland
April from Rustic Love

I tried my hardest to find those who hadn't already been nominated for this award, but if I got some repeats -- oops!  These blogs are some of my favorites and those who I think really deserve some recognition.  These ladies are all awesome in their own ways <3
