Liebster Love!

I have something very exciting to talk about today.  A few short months ago this sweet girl sent me an e-mail asking a question about how to do something blog-related.  And now here we are blog buddies!
Haley is SO pretty and a sweetie!  She nominated me for a Liebster Blog Award, and I couldn't be more flattered.  
Here's the description of the award (taken from Haley's page):
The Liebster Blog Award is given to upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. The Meaning; Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome.
I may sound like I'm repeating Haley when I say this, but it is SO nice to know I have readers.  Sure, I don't have the big numbers like some girls do, but I am TOTALLY fine with that.  I blog for me, not an audience.  And I have met some incredible women through this little land of blogging!
Moving on to the nitty gritty...

Here are the rules for receiving this award:
 1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you've tagged to answer.
3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
4. Go to their page and tell them.
5. Remember, no tag backs!
