There's a 1st for everything!

Thanks to my sweet friend Amanda, I have received my very 1st Blog Award!  Yay!  
It is the Liebster Blog Award!

                                             What is this you ask?

The Liebster Blog Award is given to an up and coming blogger who have less than 200 followers. 
Liebster is a German word meaning dear, sweet, kind, nice, good, beloved, lovely, kindly, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.To keep this award going, pass the award along to 5 other new deserving bloggers who have less than 200 followers.

The rules for the Liebster Blog Award are:
1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love, too!

Check out my Top 5:

1. Aubrey @ Those Darn Eckersons

I met Aubrey during my college days!  I've just recently discovered her blog & I love it!  Her sense of humor comes through the words and pictures...just like I remember her back at The Peay!  You'll love getting to see her fun 'newly wed' travels & pick up on some fun crafty ideas too!

What can I say, Mary is the sweetest real life friend anyone can have!  Take a glimpse at her sweet blog and you will see exactly what I'm talking about...she is a jet-setter, hard worker, loving mom & wife...see for yourself! 

3. Brooke @ 310 grae place
Brooke has the sweetest 2 little boys you will ever see...I love reading her blog for the adventures her family takes and seeing all the fun crafts and ideas she comes up with!  You will love all the inspiration you get as well! 

3. Wendy @ 810 Place
Wendy is actually Brooke's sister (see #4)!  They are both equally amazing women!  Wendy's blog takes you on adventures all over the country...I love vicariously living through her fun travels!  She also shares fun recipes, family fun ideas, and much more!  You will love taking the journey with her & her hubby!

Wanna meet a hard working Mom that crafts and really does it all...they even have a farm!  Shelby is your girl!  Shelby has a tender heart and her baby girl with her red curls will just melt your heart!

Check out these lovely ladies and give them some love!  
Thanks again Amanda for the shout out!
