Liebster Blog Award

I was given the Liebster Blog award by my new bloggy friend Kelly over at {Keeping up with the Manns}!

She is so fun and has this amazing Fireplace-less mantle that I covet deeply.

She is always doing renovations and projects for her house so check her out!

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.

So now it's my turn to pick 5 people who I think deserve this award {with less than 200 followers} And man it was hard because all of you friends have a bazillion followers. I'm jealous ;)

1. Jennie at Ampersand Photography. She is not only a family friend for life {literally since we were born}, she is an awesome and artistic photographer. If you need any photos done in the Mesa, AZ area, she can give you a great deal and give you awesome shots.

2. My sister Elizabeth at LizzyLuu Designs. She makes designer bum accessories for yourself and your little one! You can just grab one of her wipey clutches and go. These are amazing and so is she for being so creative! Check her out for sure {especially since she may be sponsoring a giveaway soon...hint hint}

3. Liz at The Quick Journey. I've only recently gotten to know her in the bloggy world but she is very crafty and family oriented. Her headbands are awesome and very stylish as well as her beautiful family pictures. Give her some bloggy love!

4. Emily at Knot Knot, Who's There? I've known Emily for several years but she only just recently started her blog. She is one of those people that think "that's too expensive, I'll just make it myself!" and did! She has some amazing new crochet beanies for little ones that are so cute! She also posts about her little guy and family. Check it!

5. Lauryn at Love Notes by Lauryn. I don't know if she knows that I blog stalk her but her last few posts have been amazing! Especially her latest wedding invitation that she made- it makes me want to do mine all over again! She takes some great photos and find amazing inspiration online to post for everyone. Send her bloggy love and maybe she'll realize that I'm a fan... haha :)

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!

That's all for now... I'm having a VERY lazy Friday morning in preparation for the project frenzy I'm about to enter in an hour or two :)
