What I Did This Weeked & An Award

This Weekend I...

Wore Green.

Made Green Four Leaf Clover Pancakes for The Petites.

Got Some Fresh Picked Love From Mi Bella

Went On A Picnic With My Boys.

Saw Even MORE of VA Traveling With The Hubbs & The Girls.

AND I got this sweet award 

from Brooke over at Start At Home.
(She has some REALLY cute ideas for DIY. I am guilty of coveting her {laundry room} makeover)

I found out that Leibster means Beloved or Dearest...which I think is just darling.

When you receive the award you are supposed to do the following.

1) Thank the blog who gave it to you, and link back to them in a post about your award. (Which is just good manners.)

2) Post the award in a post or on your blog. (done & done)

3) And then pay it forward by giving the award to some blogs you admire (5) who have less than 200 followers.
(If you would like to help me increase my followers feel free to click that little follow button over there on your left...THANKS! you rock)

So here it goes...If you've been around this blog for less than oh, five minutes, then maybe you haven't heard that there is this other blog I really like called (1) The Lulu Chronicles. Liza really is a modern day gypsy. She travels around the world (literally, she just got back from Africa a few weeks ago.) and lives a much more Glam life than a simple mommy like me. It's so fun to read all about it and see her fab pics. (In fairness, she also happens to be my bestie for 10 years running)

There are lots of other blogs that I read daily that didn't quite fit in the rules. One's I am not supposed to mention because they have too many followers like Hanna over at (2) Bouffee e Bambini, or a sweet mommy blogger Carina, who I have been following for about a year via her blog (3)A Punk, A Pumpkin and A Peanut.

There is a blog I have just started following that I found by reading Carina's blog that I LOVE called (4)Sugar Mama Bakeshop. She has a great up and coming blog with a friendly feel and fun posts, but she has already received The Liebster. (YAY, Ashley!)

There is at least one other blog though that I think is definitely a cute find and that, as far as I can tell, has not received a Liebster. (before now)

The blog is (5)The Jack Chronicles, (no, I did not plan for both my "legal" choices to be "chronicles" but it does work out well.) She is a fellow mommy blogger and I really love her colorful photos and all her beach talk that makes me miss my life by the sea.

I may not have entirely followed the rules, but these are all really great blogs that I will totally vouch for. So click on a few and make a new friend. 

Spread'n the Love ASAP
(As Southern As Possible)
