I am so excited because I got this today: "Hi Gorgeous. I wasnt sure how to get in touch with you, but I just wanted to tell you that you have been awarded with the Liebster Award by me," from Dina at A Secretary's Nail Art.

2. They must also answer the 11 questions the 'tagger' has set for them.
3. They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
4. They must then choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers and tag them in their post.
5. These lucky bloggers must then be told.
6. There's no tag backs.
11. Things about me:
1.  I love to go dancing even though I am a terrible dancer!
2.  I have a fluffy baby named Charlie who is a ten-pound Maltese dog and sleeps in the bed even though it's crowded.

4.  I could survive solely on Mexican food and grilled cheese sandwiches.
5.  I play clarinet.
6.  I love to go to the shore in the summer and one day hope to spend the entire summer at the shore.

9.  I am really bad at telling jokes because I always forget the punchline.
10.  After dogs, sharks are my favorite animal and I am obsessed with Shark Week.  I want to do a shark manicure and have a shark-themed party with shark cupcakes and beverages and watch Shark Week for seven days straight.  Not kidding.
