Liebster Blog Award

I am so excited, because Val at The Daily Distraction had nominated me for a Liebster Blog Award, woop woop I am so happy, can you tell?

The Liebster is given to bloggers with less than 200 followers and it's meant to be a nice, welcoming way to get to know each other in this lovely little blogging community.

So here are the rules:
1. Each person must list 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the 11 questions that the tagger has set for you plus you MUST create a set of 11 new questions for the people you will nominate.
3. Choose up to 11 bloggers linking them to your post.
4. Go to their page and inform them of the nomination.
5. Absolutely No tag backs.
6. Remember to only tag bloggers with less than 200 followers.

So here goes!

The 11 things about myself:

1)  I will most likely never stop eating Taco Bell, but it has been awhile.
2)  I constantly wake up in the middle of the night to make sure my children are breathing.
3)  I am a master coupon shopper
4)  It is a life goal of my sister and I to appear on an episode of Saturday Night Live, we fancy ourselves quite hilarious!
5)  I am not fashionable, I try really hard though.
6)  I LOVE watermelon, seriously I have could eat a whole one all by myself.
7)  I LOVE holding babies, they are so small and soft
8)  I do not take pictures of myself, like seriously none in the last 4 years
9)  I need people to validate me, or I feel useless

  5. Interesting question about the "How long did it take you to tell your friend and family about the blog". I definitely kept mine on the D.L. for awhile and interesting enough my writing style changed quite a bit when I knew my mom was reading. I guess it just shakes things up a bit. Love that your girls inspire you to blog. I can't wait until I have kids that I can write about! Love it! Just found your blog and have enjoyed getting to know you better. I'm excited to follow along!
