Liebster Award!!

This is my THIRD Liebster Award, I'm so excited to do this all again, it's so fun! And I'm so thankful to Stacey at Just Because, Why Not? for nominating me!! Thanks heaps! 

The Rules

There are so many different versions of Liebster Award rules, but here are the ones I'm going by;

1. thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.
2. display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)
3. answer 11 questions about yourself, which will be provided to you by the person who nominated you.
4. provide 11 random facts about yourself.
5. nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 1000 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!)
6. create a new list of questions for the blogger to answer.
7. list these rules in your post (You can copy and paste from here.) Once you have written and published it, you then have to:
8. Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it!)

    I think having your little man is the greatest accomplishment. I know having my kids is mine!

    I love that you were homeschool (twice, LOL) and that you teach dance. How fun!

    Thanks so much for nominating me! So thoughtful! Reading all of your random facts, I realized that we are a lot a like! Super perfectionist over here and I used to be a dancer. I also don't like balloons, but it's because I hate when they pop! And my favorite sound in the whole world is my son's laugh! Loved reading this to get to know you better!
