I was nominated for the Liebster Award by a sweet friend, Stephanie Lassiter.The Liebster Blog Award is given to bloggers by bloggers. It's a way to acknowledge each other & say, "you're doing a great job." It's for bloggers with 200 or less followers, so it's also a nice way to spread the word about smaller blogs!
Here's what to do: When you receive the award, nominate 11 blogs that you read, post 11 random facts about yourself, and answer the 11 questions from the person who nominated you. Once you nominate 11 blogs for the award, ask them 11 questions & eagerly await their responses (:
My nominees are:
1. For This Child I Prayed
2. Afternoons & Coffeespoons
3. Just a Vapor
sisters, margaret & jeannie
9. Pure Jane
10. two plus bink

[for some reason i seriously don't remember many details about my childhood - much to my dad's dismay...he says he wouldn't have spent so much money on life experiences for me not to remember them - haha!] seriously though, i loved our family vacations
 Who is the one person you admire most. Why?
my Mikey. i could talk about what i admire about him all day. he's a hard worker. he's a prayer warrior for our family. he loves life. he has a passion and a heart for people that i don't have. he loves the Lord. he doesn't mind getting his hands dirty. he's super manly. he sees things from a totally different perspective than i do. he's brilliant and such a stud.
