I'm Kind of a Big Deal

I have been blogging for about 2 months now and my popularity has grown like wildfire. I kid.

Seriously, I am amazed that people want to read about my simple little life, but I'm so thankful they do. Blogging has been a fun release for me! As of now, I have 31 "followers", of which I personally know about 1/2.  So, it's cool to me that random people have somehow stumbled upon my little area of the internet and decided to stick around!

Anyway, Brittany has given me a Liebster Award (thank you!), which is an award for bloggers with 200 or less followers to encourage others to follow them. Liebster is the German word for "beloved" or "dearest" or in this case a "favorite"!

Here are the Liebster rules:

1) Show your thanks by linking the sweet person who nominated you.
2) Leave links to 5 of your top blogs and leave a comment letting them know!
3) Post the award on your blog.
4) Enjoy the love!

This was hard for me because a lot of the blogs I read have over 200 followers, and a lot of them seem to be more personal/family blogs, so I'm not sure they'd want me encouraging people to follow them. So here are my selections of the under-200 follower blogs that I don't think would mind me sharing their stuff with all 31 of my readers!! I know...the notoriety you are getting from me is underwhelming!! :)

Here are my TOP 5 Blogs I love to read!!!
1. Lindsay @ the allen's   Lindsay is a real-life friend and so creative! She makes the CUTEST cakes, sews, gets crafty, bakes, etc etc. Looking for some inspiration (or someone to make you feel bad for how UNcreative you are??)? Then, Lindsay's your girl!
2. Ellen @ In His Grip  Ellen is also a real-life friend. She is a fellow minister's wife, homeschools her two boys and is pregnant. Busy much?!
3.  Ali @ My Suitcase Full of Tricks   A hilarious look at life. Love reading this blog! It may or may not have a post about duct taping her child to a chair! :)
4. Ali @ Young and Restless Blog  A fun blog by a cute college girl. Oh, those were the days!!
5. The ladies at 16 Balls in the Air  2 moms of 4 boys each. What fun!!

Now, go follow these blogs and enjoy! :)
