Liebster Blog Award

German: Liebster (n.) beloved, dear, dearest, love {definition via}

Kristen over at Life with the Ellwoods awarded me the Liebster award, which is basically an awesome and incredibly sweet gesture from her! The Liebster blog award is given to up and coming bloggers 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. 

Wasn't that sweet of her? You rock, Kristen! Thank you again!

To keep this award going and pass it along to other new deserving blogs, the recipient must now recognize five other bloggers with less than 200 followers that have really stood out in the crowd.

The rules for the Liebster Award are:
1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top five 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 five listed below: go visit them and say hello!

Of course I couldn't accept the award without returning the gesture! Kristen is a girl I Pinterest-stalked until I eventually found her blog (sad, right? Oh Pinterest, what you do to me!) She is expecting a sweet baby girl VERY very soon and her blog is full of home and life projects and events getting her and her hubby ready for the special day! She gives awesome tutorials for her projects as well, so go check her out!

I met Ashley on the Internet through a linky party last Christmas showing off Christmas mantles! Her decor is so cute, just you wait and see come Christmas time! Ashley and I clicked (however you do that online) immediately and we have continually kept in touch via comments throughout this entire year! She just had a beautiful baby girl named Emily Ann, so her blog is full of stories and happenings featuring her, her hubby, and her precious EA! Also, her blog features yummy recipes, cute crafts, and Auburn football (well, Auburn anything actually)! War Eagle!

I know Crystal indirectly through common friends that we have and she has the SWEETEST blog featuring her son, Mason! She posts tons of pictures which are so fun to go through and loves sharing stories, moments, and special happenings that occur between her, her husband, and their precious son! Plus, she is a Texan and a Texas Rangers fan just like me! Let's go Rangers!

Laura was my college roommate, one of my "sorority sisters", one of my bridesmaids, and one of my ABSOLUTE best friends!  I l-o-v-e this girl to death and her blog is so SO adorable! She features home decor tips and tricks, as well as cute and crafty things to feature in your house. She just had a precious baby in May named Clara, so if you are lucky, maybe she will feature some pictures featuring baby projects as well!

I went to high school with Beth and she is hilarious! She is a vegetarian and an avid runner, so her blog is full of tips on eating healthy, cooking up yummy recipes, and getting in shape! She also features crafts and tidbits of her life (like this here ol' blog), so you are sure to relate to everything she has to say! Her style of writing is so personal, it feels like you are talking to a best friend (er, reading from a best friend). Check her out!
