Liebster Award: Get to Know Me

This is such a great quote! It's all about trusting yourself and believing in yourself. Right now I am recovering from getting my wisdom teeth out. This means bed rest for the next few days, but I still need to keep myself occupied :) While I can't leave my house for the next week, I still want to find some cool things to post about. A few days ago, the lovely Michaela from Monogrammed Midwesterner nominated me for the Liebster Award! She is so kind and has been such a supportive blogger friend :) Everyone check out her blog! 

Here are the rules: 
1. Post eleven facts about yourself
2. Answer the eleven questions provided by the person who nominated you, and then create an eleven-question set for the next group of nominees
3. Choose eleven people to nominate and link them in the post
4. Let your nominees know they've been tagged- and no tag-backs!
5. Nominate blogs under 200 followers
