Double Liebster Award?!?

I have seen other people get the Liebster award in the blogging community and I love reading other people's post! But what is it? The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Awesome right? So I totally dint expect to be nominated for one. I'm not gonna lie, I did like a little squeal when I found out. I was nominated by Kira. Then I found I was nominated AGAIN within the next day by Sydney. How in the world this happened I am not sure but THANK YOU GIRLS! I am combining my award into one post. No shame!
