Liebster Blog Award!

If you haven't seen the Leibster Blog award floating around, it's an award that helps generate some buzz to your blog as well as other bloggers I was nominated last month by Christina, and now by Rosalie. Thank you to these lovely ladies. Although I was nominated last month I never got around to responded, and quite frankly was a little confused about it... but now that I've seen it around, I think I've got the jest.

The rules for this tag/award go as followed:
    • The nominees must link back to the blogger who nominated you.
    • Post 11 random facts about yourself.
    • Answer 11 question from the person who nominated you
    • Nominate 11 new bloggers (with under 200 followers) & make 11 new questions for them to answer.
First things first:
Although I already mentioned them, both Christina, and Rosalie deserve another mention!

Now to the nitty gritty!

11 Random facts about me!
  1. My middle name is Dalia
  2. I don't eat meat.
  3. I have "virgin" hair... as I've never dyed it!
  4. I speak fluent Spanish.
  5. I have an OCD that involves pillows.
  6. I do a pretty mean English and Irish accent... well try to at least.
  7. I can honestly say I'm in love with Robert Sheehan.
  8. My bestfriend is a straight guy named Justin... IT IS POSSIBLE!
  9. My mother calls me Lala, while my sister calls me Bubbie... embarrassing I know!
  10. I have a certain naive-ness to me, that makes me want to see the good in people, even when its  not there.
  11. I'll eat any cake, even if I don't like it... just because I LOVE cake.
Those were fun to think of! As two ladies nominated me, I shall answer both their questions!
