As many of you already know, the Liebster award is a way to give a friendly little shout-out to bloggers who have less than 200 followers. It's a way to meet new people and to tell others that you really dig their blog. The rules of the award are as follows:

-List 11 random facts about yourself

-Answer 11 questions from your nominator

-Create 11 new questions for your nominees to answer

-Nominate up to 11 other blogs with less than 200 followers

-Go to each nominee's page and tell them that you've nominated them for the award

-Link back to the the blogger who nominated you as a "thank you"

Sounds easy enough! Here are 11 random facts about me:
1.) I'm a picture/picture frame freak. I love framing pictures and putting them around the house and giving them as presents

3.) Right before I start work and I enter the secure door in to the jail, the last thing I look at is a picture of Brent & the dogs and my immediate family.
4.) I consider myself to be a shopoholic.
5.) I have a fear of spiders, rats, snakes, and bats
6.) I tend to collect things (magazines, nail polish, owl stuff, stationery, books, etc)
7.) I am a Mama's girl.
8.) If I could lay around in hoodies and sweatpants all day I would
9.) It is my goal to go see as many states as possible before I die.
10.) I love swimming, or anything on the water. Even though a few years ago I nearly drowned.
11.) I love the Boston Red Sox and someday want to go to a game in Boston.

11) "When your forced to stand alone, you realize what you have in you"

"There comes a point in your life when you realize who matters, who never did, who won't anymore, and who always will. So don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason they didn't make it your future"

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense". -Emerson

"Nothings perfect...its all how you look at it and the decisions you make based on the obstacles you face in your life. You're either going to learn from them or keep repeating them, and you're the only one that's going to make that decision.." ~Lisa held

"What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail"

"Sometimes its best to forget what you feel and remember what you deserve"

"We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly"
