I was nominated....

I must say, I am truly honored that I would be considered by another blogger.
I was actually nominated by 2 bloggers - 
Theresa at She Waddles Like a Duck and Erica at We Three Crabs.
Thank you ladies!

Liebster is German for sweetest, valued, welcome, and/or favorite.
So here is how it works - bloggers award other bloggers who they deem as “up and coming” and have less than 200 followers. It’s a nice way to help other bloggers increase their visibility.

Here are the rules:
1. Post 11 things about yourself
2. Answer 11 questions from the nominating blogger
3. Nominate 11 bloggers
4. Create 11 questions for the bloggers that you nominate
5. Tell your nominees that you have nominated them

    The boys and I will be boarding a plane soon in search of holidays with loved ones and snow-- oh my goodness we may just freeze our little island toes off, but I wanted to stop by here first, to:

    Thank you for being a sweet part of last week's An Aloha Affair.
    And, to personally invite you to join us again today.

  4. Congratulations and thank you for nominating me. I'm wondering though, if you forwarded the 11 questions via FB or email.
    Either way, thank you and it was nice to read more about you. I am intrigued about the Milky Way cake. Sounds dangerous. LOL

    And I am so sorry, I am not gonna lie, I completely forgot to add the 11 questions for the nominees.
    I'm such a dummy sometimes, lol. I kept looking it over to make sure I had everything and I guess cause it was sooooo long I thought I had everything. But they are there now. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.
    I hope you have as much fun with this as I did.
