I was nominated for {The Liebster Award}

For those who left a comment or began following my blog when I posted the Bird of a Thousand Songs giveaway, thank you!..And, courtesy of randompicker.com the winner is: Lesley Badger. Congrats!

Now, on to the rest of the post:

I’ve been nominated for the Liebster award!

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(s) who nominated you. You pass the award onto 11 other blogs (make sure you tell them you nominated them!) and ask them 11 questions. You’re not allowed to nominate the blog(s) who nominated you! (To get the button, right click the picture on my page and save the picture to your computer. You can then upload to your blog.)
Thank you Sarah at It’s Sarah Rose, for nominating me. Love your blog!

4. If you could have a mommy’s night out tonight, where would you go? I would go out for dinner to a new Japanese restaurant that opened in town, and go to a movie..to eat lots of popcorn! Mama’s got a new pair of shoes that want to be taken out on the town!
