11 Blogs I'm Nominating:
  (I stole this from Katie) So here's the thing...I hate picking only 11 people, because I love all of the blogs that I read, and I don't want anyone to feel left out! So, if you have under 200 followers, I'm nominating you! And even if you have more than 200, you can still answer all of the questions and such if you'd like, because that's fun! Yay! Everybody wins :)
That was fun! Hope other people play along-I love getting to know my fellow bloggers!
