I've been nominated for an award!

I'm excited that Carrie Stratford-Collver from Wanted.....More Friends to Feed has nominated me for my very first blogging award...The Liebster Award, thanks a million Carrie.

Don't know what it is, neither did I until I did some research. It's an award given to new blogs with less then 200 followers (sadly I have probably the least at this point so feel free to subscribed, PLEASE) and you're nominated by fellow bloggers. In reality, there's no judges, no competition, no actual award mailed to my house. LOL  

I'm pretty new at this whole blogging thing, so getting any recognition that doesn't come from my close circle is a pretty neat thing, especially considering that Carrie and I have never met and she lives in Ontario.
The rules of The Liebster Award are that you post 11 random facts about yourself, answer the 11 questions provided by the blogger who nominated you and then come up with your own list of 11 questions for the 11 bloggers who you nominate and go back to their blogs to let them know you've nominated them.
11 random facts about me:

  1. I am ambidextrous.
  2. I can do the wave with my tongue
  3. I really like hamburger helper

  6. I am currently making homemade wine
  7. I enjoy sleep about as much as cooking and eating
  8. I am usually late for most things, (odd since I was premature 3 months)
  9. On that note, I only weighed 2 lbs when I was born
