Blog Award

Thank you so much to Kara at Home With a Purpose for awarding me my very first blogging award. I am so flattered!'s how it works:
1) Accept the award.
2) Post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, along with his/her blog link.
3) Pass the award on to 15 other blogs that you've newly discovered (Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award).
And here are my very favorite blogs (forgive the fact that there aren't 15, but I really do enjoy and admire each and every one of these blogs!)

The Diaper Diaries Who doesn’t love Things I Love Thursday? And there is an adorable pic of the newest addition to this blogger’s family on the current page!

A Pocket of Rocks This blogger forever has a place in my heart because she did a blog about Of Such is the Kingdom! Bless her soul! I love the fact that the name of her blog is inspired by a handful of rocks her daughter picked with care and gave to her.

Work at Home Mafia Yeah for Kim! She is always posting about freebies and coupons and ways to use our love of being on the computer for the greater good of our families. (Or at least that’s how I justify it!) The last freebie we enjoyed was a package of granola in the mail. My kids appeared from no where as I pulled it out of the mailbox. Needless to say, that little packet did not make it back to the house!

I Blame My Mother Sarah has cute ideas and incredible talents. My favorite post lately? She posted about a dentist who is paying kids for their Halloween candy. The candy will be sent to our troops! What a great idea. I’m hoping the dentists in our area get the memo. I love trick-or-treating, but I’m always trying to hide the candy afterwards!

Please Pass the Salt A friend recommended this blog to me because I too love salt, and lo and behold, I know Moriah from college! How fun to keep up with someone I usually never see! She has a ready whit and she also writes for Chic Critique (

Katherine Marie Photography This blog is AMAZING! She posts some of the most awesome pics of kids and babies that I’ve ever seen. And I LOVE her theme of the week ideas. Really, you should visit and look at her archive of these. It is eye candy as well as inspiration!

Mama Go For a Run This is a blog also written by someone I “run” into in the community. She is a way more serious runner than I am, but I love her advice and inspiration!

Blossom Kids This is such a professionally done blog! They showcase many great internet products from around the world, and have great ideas for making being a momma stylish and fun.

Homemaking Fun I love the name of this blog. So many mommas think of it more as “Homemaking Drudgery.” (I know I have that horrible habit myself!) Jadi has great ideas for having a beautiful home and creative and happy children.

The Tuininga Increase This blogger is one of my heroes! Not only does she homeschool a slew of children, but she has time for a beautiful scripture card business on the side.


  1. Thank you so much. I am quite honored that you thought of me. Love your header. It always makes me smile when I come over here :)

  2. Thank you! You are so sweet for mentioning me :) I can't help but smile every time I come to your blog and get a glimpse of those gorgeous eye and pigtails! Keep it up!

  3. A blog award?!? Cool! When you get all famous from this, just remember, I was your first reader, (and probably most loyal!).

  4. Wow, congrats on your first (of I'm sure, many) awards! What a great idea and I'll definitely check out the other sites! =D
