Liebster Award! Whaaat?!

Wow. We were nominated for a Liebster Award by the lovely Alyssa over at Oh Sew Crafty Life! We can hardly believe it. We still can't believe that people actually READ our blog... I mean, besides our mother-in-law!
To be honest, I don't think either of us knew what a Liebster Award was, but it's an awesome way to find new blogs that have less than 200 followers-- and to show them some love!

Here are the Rules of The Liebster Award:
1. Link back to the nominating blog.
2. Answer the questions given by the nominator.
3. Give 11 random facts about yourself.
4. Nominate 5-11 other blogs with fewer than 200 followers.
5. Ask the nominees 11 new questions.
6. Contact the nominees to congratulate them and let them know they were nominated.

Here are the questions that we were given to answer from Alyssa:
1. What color nail polish do you have on?
Kenzie: None on my fingers, unless you count spray paint as nail polish! Bubble Bath by OPI on my toes.
Kayla: A little leftover sparkly pink.
2. Pizza: Pepperoni, cheese, or what?
Kenzie: Hawaiian!
Kayla: Chicken Alfredo Pizza, is da bomb!
3. What is your favorite holiday?
Kenzie: Christmas, for sure. But, I also love Thanksgiving!
Kayla: Thanksgiving, for sure.
4. What craft supply could you not live without?
Kenzie: My acrylic paints.
Kayla: Paint, I love adding a splash of color to things.
5. How many siblings do you have?
Kenzie: 1 older sister, we're 11 years apart! Plus, 2 sister-in-laws, and 3 brother-in-laws.
Kayla: 5, I am the 3rd born of 6! 4 Girls and 2 Boys
6. Where in the world would you NOT want to travel?
Kenzie: I'm pretty much down with going anywhere, some places only under different governmental circumstances, though!
Kayla: The only place I can think of is the desert, like pokey cactus no water in sight, kind of desert. Other than that I LOVE to travel.
7. Do you have a sweet tooth? What is your favorite dessert?
Kenzie: YES! Cheeeeeesecaaaaake!
Kayla: More like sweet "teeth". I love icecream, in fact I just finished a bowl of chocolate peanut butter cup.
8. How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Kenzie: Too many to count... seriously!
Kayla: Oh dear, a lot, i haven't counted...but I need to go through them and get rid of some.
9. Tap water or bottled? Ice cold or room temperature?
Kenzie: Tap. We have yummy well water. Cold, but not too cold!
Kayla: Tap or bottled, but definitely ice cold.
10. If you were on a deserted island, what 3 things would you want to have with you?
Kenzie: I don't think I can bring people, can I? If not, then a Bible, a knife, and endless chips and salsa? Lol.
Kayla: Bible, internet, and food - lots of food ;)

And, here are our 11 random facts:
1. Kenzie: I wore rainbow suspenders as a child and carried around a peewee herman doll. Explains alot.

Kayla: When I was 10, I went to Brazil on a missions trip with my church.
4. Kenzie: I play the guitar & violin.
Kayla: I broke both of my wrists, at the same time, running backwards on the last day basketball tryouts. I still made the team! Not that I could even play. Lol.
5. Kenzie: I'm painfully shy and introverted, but most people never know. It drives my husband a little nuts, since he is very outgoing and gregarious.

Kayla: I live in an underground house.
