A Little Blogger Love...

I am honored to have received the "One Lovely Blog Award" from Crystal, over at My Life as Mom and Wife. She passed it on along with the following rules:

The rules for accepting and spreading the blogging love are as follows:

1. Grab the award. Post it on your blog with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.

 2. Pay it forward to 5 other bloggers that you have newly discovered. (Okay, it's supposed to be fifteen, but I'm new to this blogging stuff, and I don't have fifteen yet... so I'm giving you the best of the best! I'm such a cheater...)

3. Contact those blog owners and let them know they’ve been chosen.

Here are five bloggers that I admire, that post regularly, and that I truly enjoy reading. The links below will take you to one of my favorite posts of theirs, but click on the header/banner at the top of the blog to read more. And if you really like what you read, follow their blog so you won't miss any of the fun!

  1. uno, dos, Tracey is the first blog I read regularly. It is written by my friend Tracey, whose writing is so great, she made me want to write too. If you can make a bath towel interesting, and have me laughing at giraffes, then yes, I want to be just like you.
  2. Jennifer V. Davis was the second blog I ran across, as I was searching for potty training tips. Anyone who uses the phrase "vast amounts of urine" in a blog is someone I can definitely relate to! Her post, "The Morning I Knew My Husband Really Loves Me", inspired my post "Covered in Love". Her blog also gave me the final push I needed to start my own blog.
  3. I discovered Fruit of the Carolyn along the way, and Carolyn has a wonderful way of writing about her life that makes me want to chuck it all and go live on a farm with five kids. Okay, maybe four kids.
  4. Pull Ups and Pedicures appears to be a fairly new blog, but the name alone made me want to read it. And the post I've linked to made me an instant fan. Sometimes, you really do just have to laugh.
  5. One of my first followers from the outside blogger world was Jill at Meet the Dubiens. Her pictures are just amazing, and she always has great ideas for the little ones! I've admired her butterfly craft for her daughter's room, and her fun food ideas are just great.
Many thanks again to Crystal for thinking of me. I hope to live up to the compliment!

Congratulations on the award and thank-you so much for passing it along to me! That was so nice of you and I feel very honored.

Tracey said...

Aw, shucks. Thank you do much. I'm glad I talked you into this. I think I will come back and grab this when my new computer arrives.

Kari said...

Jill and Tracey, I had meant to send an e-mail, but I had some seriously limited internet time. So glad you actually read my blog too!

I'll try to send an e-mail anyway, when the kids are sleeping... it might be awhile. ;)

Kari, I'm glad you liked them - I know others will too. Oh, and tell Greg he's welcome. Hee.
