liebster award

A few days ago I was going through my comments just as I normally do through the day and came across one that caught me by surprise it was from Bolaji over at Velvet Row. She told me that she nominated me for a Leibster Award. SO cool! Never been nominated for a award for my blog yet so this is very exciting for me. Thank you so much Bolaji! Go and Check out her blog is pretty awesome Velvet Row. Now for the rules, the answers to the questions Bolaji has asked me, who I chose for my nominations and of course my questions for them. Who knew this was going to be so much work lol! I am up for the challenge. Check it out.

At first these rules looked very simple and I was like “This is a piece of cake!” Then as I started past the questions and got to the nominations portion I was like “Wait 11 bloggers with under 200 followers?” This may be a little harder than I thought. However I made it through and so will you (I am referring to the blog nominations I chose)

The rules are:
1. You have to link back to the person that nominated you. 
2. You must answer 11 questions given to you by the person that nominated you.

The Questions:
