Liebster Award

Hello Tuesday! Well this is my last day of my stay-cation. Boo! I enjoyed every minute of it and pretty much got everything done that was on my checklist. What a great feeling.

So last week I did a post that's sponsored by Framed Frosting called

Current Crush Thursdays

my post for this week was this - I was left a wonderful comment from Ashley letting me know that she nominated me for the Liebster Award. I wasn't quite sure what it was at first but quite honestly who doesn't love to be nominated and/or receive a reward?? She also got the reward so I was able to see exactly what it was. Here is a little description of the reward (I took it from Ashley's website since she explained it so much better than I could)
