Questions from:  Chestnut Street Dolls

1. What is the name of your blog? Dolly Dorm Diaries  Why?  Since many girls live here, we thought "dorm" sounded more appropriate than "house".  And, "Diaries" because we like to write about all the girls' experiences. 
2. Why do you think you got this award?  Ummmm.  We hope it's because we have fun stories and nice photos to go with them.
3. Do you have the slightest idea what/who 'Liebster' is? (I don't)  Nope, but Steampunk Addy has a good explanation on her blog!

6. Night owl or morning person?  Definitely a night owl - totes!!!
7. Do you have a nickname? If so, what is it and why?  No, no nickname.
8. Was it hard to pick 11 people to nominate?  YES, because we didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings and we didn't want to duplicate another blog's picks!  That was hard to do!
9. Least favorite book character and why.  Does Wall-e count?  We hated that story and the movie.
10. Was it hard to answer #9? Why?  No, cause we totally disliked it! 
11. What job do you think you'll have in the future (for adults, what job do you have now)?  Well, one of us is a grown up and her job is a professional photographer. :)  The other is still a teenager and she is not sure what she wants to be yet.  But we bet it will be something creative cause she's a true artist!

6.  Name one 20th century invention that will be obsolete within the next 20 years.  Encyclopedias
7.  Use one word to describe your favorite place.  Escape
8.  Why?  Because the beach we go to is very non commercial and we get to spend every day, all day long on the beach doing nothing but looking for shells and sea glass! It truly is an 'escape' from our everyday life and it's never long enough!
9.  What is your favorite time of the year?  This is a toss up....we love each season for different reasons.  Christmas in Winter, Easter in the Spring, Beach in the Summer and the crisp coolness of a colorful Fall day! 
10. What is the one skill you wish you had that seems to come naturally to some others?  Being organized and being able to KEEP IT THAT WAY!  Ugh, it's an everyday challenge!
11. Name the one person who has inspired you the most.  We know this might seem hard to believe but it is Jesus because he influences the way we live everyday.  We'd be very different people if it weren't for His influence in our lives.
