  1. Congratulations, Michelle… a Liebster Award, how sweet…somehow it seems to fit your style and your blog so well.

    Thank you for nominating my blog also… I’ll need a little time to work out the 11 facts and answers to the questions…This award is great in that it doesn’t link back to any ‘home site’ and is just fun. Have you seen the suggested badges you can choose from to include on your blog?
    Google ‘Images Liebster Award’… there are heaps of options. It looks as if a lot have designed their own…now if only I knew a graphic designer…

    Thank you for that…

  2. I loved reading your answers. I was debating between Mia and Bridget Jones as the fictional character that most represents me. It is funny that someone else also thought about Bridget Jones. I think the cool thing about Bridget Jones is that most “REAL” women are rather Bridget Jones-esque. Thanks for sharing your answers and I hope you end up with more traffic to your blog. 🙂
