Blog Award

My friend Roxy let me know she'd given me a Blog Award. That is just so like her! She's a sweetie. She's one of those blog friends that I have yet to meet in real life but I know we'd gel instantly. Our lives have apparantly been running in parallel for awhile. It's kind of crazy!

Anyway, here's the award.

Liebster is a German word that means beloved or favourite. This award is for blogs with fewer than 200 followers.

Here are the rules to accept this award:
1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top 5 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 to other bloggers.
5. And most of all - have fun!

So my picks are:
1 - Apron Strings. Lori puts up some pretty awesome challenges that I highly recommend checking out.

2 - My sister-in-law Jonina. She's currently running for School Board Trustee in New Westminster (BC) and would be such an asset to the school system there. She's passionate about kids, education and (the subject of her blog) getting kids outside to play ... even in the city.

3 - An old Ultimate Frisbee team mate Andrea. I love and admire her attempts to feed her eldest daughter good, healthy food. I try as well and know how hard it is when you're stuck with a picky kid. Her recipes are super yummy!

4 - Next is my friend Beth. She is battling breast cancer again and taking us along for the ride. She is a mom of 3 kids, ages with my own, living here in Ladner. The parallels are undeniable and force me to thank God on a daily basis for my continued fair health.

5 - And last but not least is an old Sorority Sister (Go Kappa!) of mine, Andrea, who is bravely documenting her trials and tribulations of motherhood. She's just had her second daughter so I look forward to those spit up posts!!

All right, that's it.
It was actually hard to find blogs with fewer than 200 followers! I've been so swamped lately that IF I'm blog surfing it's usually a few of the more well known ones. I rarely have time these days to sit down and check out all the fantastic blogs out there - even of those that regularly check me out! Anyway, thanks again for the recognition Roxy!! I'm now more determined than ever to be a better blogger friend to all!

I'll be back soon with some more card eye candy for you.
