My first Blog Award

Okay so last week I was a bad blogger and did not post for a week. I did have a good excuse that my sister was visiting from Florida. Yesterday while I was catching up on my reading (which took me a couple hours) I found out I was given the One Lovely Blog Award from not one but TWO other blogs. I was so excited and touched. I have to say THANKS SO MUCH to Kristy and Smart Pumpkin.

There are some rules that come with receiving One Lovely Blog Award.

Claim your award.

Post it on your blog along with the name of the person who gave it to you linking it to the person's blog.

Pass on the award to 15 newly discovered blogs that you find...well...lovely. :)

Don't forget to contact the recipients.

Now the hard part trying to just give this to 15 of my favorite blogs.

1. The Croley Gang: Caroline always makes me smile and reminds me to take joy in my life!!

2.Perfectly Paula: Paula has great giveaways!

3. The Attic Girl: Shelly has a little of everything, giveaways, advice, and wonderful deals on clothes!

4. Tarot Mom: MamaJosephine has a amazing sense of humor and a unique way of looking at things. I love to read her everyday she makes me think and laugh...

5. My Parenting 411: Her title says it all..she has wonderful parenting advice and great sites to check out.

6. Piece of Cake Decorating: Awesome cakes and great tips. I can not wait for my next birthday to try out one of her cakes!!

7. Ladybugs, Butterflies, and Boxing: Sonya has some of the cutest pictures ever!

8. I Hate Pink: Anna just plain cracks me up. I found her blog through the blog hop and her title just jumped out at me. Once I read her story I was hooked.

9. In the Gray Twilight: V.J. Chambers is the author to Breathless, which I started reading last week. I really enjoyed her book!

10. Green Around the Edges: Kate and Miss Mouse are the sweetest. I really enjoy reading post.

11. The Life as a Bushey: Mrs Bushey is struggling with infertility but is always so positive! Has offers for free shipping and discounts with other sites.

12. Magness Family Mayhem: Becky is my fellow Twilight addict! Plus she has a wonderful family life.

13. Mommy's Online Garage Sale: She is a online garage sale goddess with a booth at Bonanzle!

14. Mommygaga: Deanna always has great links to giveaways, plus tips for stay at home moms and money saving ideas!

15. Road to Bliss: Her blog is a day in the life of a punk rock mama. She makes me laugh which is one of the main reason I read blogs.

Those are my 15 picks they are in random order. Every blog I read I have a personal reason for it. Every one has made my life happier and better. I want to thank them all for even blogging!!
