I want to thank them both for giving me my first ever blog awards. Jessica has a fun blog with lots of great tips, coupons and an adorable son so please go and check her out :) Mesina is a fabulous writer and very artistic with a wonderful blog so please go and check her out too! Thank you both.
The rules of the "One Lovely Blog Award" are:
Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
So here are some of my favorite blogs and some that I have just discovered (sorry I am not very good at following the rules) :) If you already received this award from someone else, I apologize. I just think you are great!
The Young and the Relentless - I have been a BIG fan of this blog for almost a year. Connie is a riot and she and I both share a strong love for Christmas and taking our children on fun adventures.
Mommy Brain - I discovered this blog about a month ago and I am hooked! I instantly bonded with Mommy Brain in that we are both expecting our second children. She is a wonderful and fun mommy with lots of great stories to share.
My Life Badly Written - Amanda is a wonderful mommy down under who has an adorable son and a wonderful sense of humor. Her blog always makes me smile.
Babe in Babeland - BIBL is an actress living in NYC with an adorable baby girl. I appreciate her honesty and fun loving spirit. She is crazy busy planning her wedding right now but promises to be back to blogging regularly soon.
Toddler Awesome - Emma is the wonderful mother of adorable little Ollie. She also designed my new blog :) She is great!
Coconut Belly - I have been reading Coconut Belly for quite awhile. She has two beautiful girls with another little peanut on the way. I so enjoy her writing style and her beautiful photographs.
A Buns Life - A Buns Life has been MIA lately but she is one of my favorite blogs and I have been a fan for a very long time. She has two adorable children and so many funny things to share. Hopefully she will be back soon, I miss her!
Our Organized Chaotic Life - This is a real life friend of mine who has her hands full with work, her beautiful family, her love for scrap booking and her unfortunate medical issues. She has a heart of gold and her work is amazing! She made Z the most beautiful scrapbook I have ever seen.
Poolside with the Girls - This is a new blog for me and I really enjoy it. Poolside has two beautiful girls and two adorable pups. I love the whole theme of her blog and all that she has to share.
Good True and Beautiful - I instantly fell in love with this new blog and her tag line, "learning to live abundantly on a budget". She has great tips and stories about her adorable little guy.
For What It's Worth or Not - BJ Mama is the mother of an adorable little girl and also very creative. She has another site called LadyBeez which is a blog all about her beautiful handbags. If you stop over there by midnight tonight, you can enter to win a custom handbag!!
Sorensen Family - This new blog has two adorable little girls as the focus. Shaunell shares fun stories about her girls and always includes a lot of pictures, which I LOVE.
The Little Things- Alexa is a wonderful mother of 5 and another new find for me. She has an incredible life story and seems like an amazing person.
Laugh Until You Cry - This is another new blog for me but I feel like I have a lot in common with her. I am excited to dive in deeper and check out more of what she has written. We definitely have the New England connection (and we are both teachers).
Eleni - This is another real life friend of mine who has been MIA on her blog for awhile. She is the mother of two beautiful boys and one of the most creative people I know. She has a great sense of humor and is a great friend.
