The Liebster Award: My first blogger award!

     I am so excited!  I never thought the day would come that I would receive a blogger award.  I was excited when I had one GFC (Google Friend Connect) follower which meant I wasn't hated by the entire world for my love of polish and nail art!  The name of this award kinda scared me because I have never heard "liebster" and it was not explained in a lot of other blogs I have seen awarded it.  So before I wanted to write this post and embarrass myself if it actually meant "dog crap" or "worlds worst blogger" award, I looked for the definition to liebster.  Turns out it a German word and means darling, beloved, boyfriend, and sweetheart.  Ahhhh, how sweet is that.  It made me smile once I read the definition.  There are only a few rules for the award and they are as follows:
     1. Put the link to who gave you the award.
     2. Put the award on your post.
     3. Choose 5 blogs with under 200 followers to receive the award.
     4.  Let them know you awarded them.

First off, can I just say that I love that someone thought to create an award to help new bloggers feel great about themselves and also help promote other new bloggers in the gigantic blogosphere!?!?!  What a neat idea.

I was given this award by The Varnished Valkyrie.  In her first blog post she writes, "Why the Varnished Valkyrie?  I assume if I were flying out of the sky on my horse, getting ready to choose who dies in battle, my nails would be wicked awesome."  He he.  These girls are funny.  I highly suggest checking them out.

Now time for my tags:
Enchanting Cosmetics
Adventures of the Nail Friend
Nails By Carol
Peace, Love, Lacquer

Wow, this post took me longer to write than I thought.  :)  But so worth it.  I am off to tell these ladies that they have been tagged for an award.  Hopefully they have as much fun spreading the blog love as I have.
