Liebster Love

Why hello there, Friday. Where have you been? It's so nice to see you again!

Something cool happened this week! Erica over at Let Why Lead gave me the Liebster Award!

The Leibster Award is designed showcase quality blogs with 200 followers or less (that's me!), and it is so cool that Erica inducted me into the Liebster club. Thank you, Erica. You made my day.

The next goal of the award is to pass it on, so I get the privilege of choosing five blogs to receive the Liebster Award. *Exciting!*

Drumroll, please...

[In my best Oprah voice] "Commonplace Beauty, you get a Liebster! Family Brings Joy, YOU get a Liebster! And you! And you! And YOU!"

I have to qualify this by saying that some of these blogs don't list how many followers they have, so I'm not sure if they are under 200. Oh well, they still get a Liebster!

Commonplace Beauty: I came across this blog when Heather showed her peacock inspired holiday tablescape in the Centsational Girl's tablescape party (you know, the one we entered with our pear green sparkly setting). It turns out her blog is super cute and full of DIY ideas, so you should definitely check it out!

Family Brings Joy:  Shan tackles all things family-related on her blog with grace and wisdom. Plus her house has a Command Central, which makes her awesome. Pay her a visit!

Kendal Jessup Photography: Kendal and I went to high school together, and now she has a fabulous photography business and blog that are worth publicizing. She did our wedding photography, and she was awesome to work with. I love to see the photos she takes and where her business takes her.

Wine Taste Girl: Shannon's super cute blog is all about getting an expensive look with a small budget. A girl after my own heart! Check out her top 10 fashion trends for spring, but be warned– it will make you want to go shopping.

The Fresh House of Belaire: This blog is brand spankin' new and belongs to my good friend Becky. We coach volleyball together, and she and her husband just bought an adorable 50s bungalow in north Dallas. They have major plans for this home, and the renovations have just begun. Follow along!


Tomorrow officially marks Spring Break time for Mr. Happy Homebody, and we are ready to go with our patio project (if it would ever stop raining). Other things I hope we hope to accomplish next week:

• Finish the flooring in the guest room. It's the last room standing with the yucky carpet.

• Do something about this curtain problem (courtesy of an impatient husband):

• Finish the set of four doodle chairs:

• Create my own version of this:

Because no one should ever forget to be awesome.

There's just something about this time of year that energizes me to take on more projects and try new things. I'm coming out of my winter hibernation or something!

* Have a great weekend! *
