Two Blog Awards!

I have some awesome followers!  Clare Mckenna at Picturesque nominated me for the Most Inspiring Blogger Award(:  And Amanda at Everyday Adventures nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award(:  Thank you, girls!

I have to answer a few questions, and nominate a few people.  For the Most Inspiring Blog Award, I have to list seven facts about myself, thank the blogger who nominated you, place the award on your blog, and nominate 15 other blogs (I'm going to do three, if y'all don't mind.  15 is a little much(:  lol ).  Then, for the Liebster Blog Award, you list 11 facts about yourself, answer the 11 questions the blogger before you left for you, ask 11 new questions, choose 11 new bloggers with under 200 followers to nominate, go to each blogger's page and let them know that they won the award, and thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog.  I think I'm just going to list 11 facts about me for both, cause I'm not that interesting and I don't have very many random facts(: lol  All of my awards will be listed on my "Awards" page, so you can go there to get both pictures.
