I was nominated for two awards by my friend, Virgina, over at a- blog- from -the -heart. Thank you kindly, m’dear! 😉
So, first off…..
* * * The Rules * * *
1.) Thank and link back to the person who nominated you
2.) List 11 facts about yourself
3.) Answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger who nominated you
4.) Nominate 9 bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers
5.) Ask them 11 questions
6.) Let them know about the nomination
And, though I’m not usually a rule breaker, I’m going to have to break a few of these rules. Sorry! It’s just that I don’t follow a whole lot of blogs and most of the ones I would have nominated have recently been tagged (and some of these bloggers have mentioned that they don’t really have time to do the award post). However, I will do the facts & answer the questions.
