I was nominated for my second and third Liebster award by Vicki at Don’t Quit Your Day Job and Marie at My Mom Thoughts. Oh gosh… I’m really behind on my posts. The nomination by Vicki was done in May (!!) Once again, thank you to Vicki and Marie for taking the time to nominate my little blog.
I love Marie’s recipes. Simple, but they look oh-so-delicious! If I’m going to start cooking, this recipe for pulled pork sandwiches will be on the top of my list to try.
Vicki has a great sense of humour. And she has bearded dragons for pets. How cool is that?!
