So the lovely Colleen from the Day by Day Darling blog was ever so kind and nominated me for the Leibster Blog award! I can't thank her enough! Seriously, her blog is great AND she's a fellow WSU coug!

The Liebster Blog Award is given to bloggers by bloggers. It is a way to acknowledge each other and say, "You’re doing a great job." It is for blogs with 200 or less followers, so it’s also a great way to spread the word about smaller blogs and get them more readers and followers! When you receive the award, you post 11 random facts about yourself and answer 11 questions from the person who nominated you.You pass the Award onto 11 other blogs (make sure to let them know they were nominated) and ask them 11 questions. You’re not allowed to nominate the blog who nominated you! (To get the button, right click the picture above and save the picture to your computer. You can then upload to your blog.)
