Liebster Award Nominations

Happy Thursday!

In the past week I have recieved three Liebster Award Nominations for The Shore Life According to M.  First I want to thank Charlotte HayesAlex, and Elizabeth for nominating me.   This is really exciting to me, because it reassures me that people are actually reading what I write.  Another reason why I love when people comment on posts.  Anyways, I have been nominated for this award by other bloggers in the past..see my posts: Liebster Award and Liebster Award (again).

The original rules:
one: Recognize the blogger(s) who nominated you
two: Give 10 facts about you or your blog
three: answer all questions
four: nominate your favorite bloggers
five: provide questions for those bloggers to answer.

I am going to change rule number four and do things a little differently.  I am going to post my questions without nominating anyone.  This will allow anyone to answer them and create a fun sharing of posts!  So essentially, I am nominating all of my readers.  If you choose to accept, simply post your link in the comment portion of this post.

Eleven Facts:
One: I start my sophomore year of college on Monday.
Two: I think I might have an addiction to shopping.
Three: I am going to school to become a teacher
Four: I have been to the beach a total of nineteen days this summer.
FIve: I am seriously thinking about getting a pair of jack rogers sandals.
Six: Summer is my favorite season, it makes me sad that it is almost over.
Seven:  This summer marks ten years that I have been best friends with mIr.
Eight: This is the first time in seven years that I am coaching field hockey rather than playing for my school team.
Nine: I would love to have a VW jetta in red.
Ten: I am thinking about changing my blogs name, but I am not sure how to do this without losing followers since my link would change.
