3 happy things...

1. This makes me happy:
She can blow bubbles by herself now.

2. This makes me happy:
I saw this on Pinterest and it totally works!
We've been eating those green onions for 3 weeks now.
They just keep growing back!

3. This makes me happy:
Emily and Lindsey Jo gave me the Liebster blog award.
Awe, thanks!

Liebster in German means dearest, beloved, or favorite, 
and it is for bloggers with under 200 followers.
(The term "followers" still creeps me out a bit.)

It came with a generous cash prize, 
which is amazing!
(No, not really.
Sometimes it's fun to pretend.)

Rules of the Game:
1. Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog.
2. Link back to the blogger who awarded you.
3. Copy & paste the blog award on your blog.
4. Reveal your 5 blog picks.
5. Let them know you chose them by leaving a comment on their blog.
*Or, don't do any of it. 
Totally up to you.
I don't want anyone to ever feel pressured to re-post things like this.

So here are my picks:
(Confession: It's too hard for me to choose, 
so I just went down that list on the right and picked the first ones that met the criteria.)

1. The Klenke's- I love those Klenke's. 
And today is their daughter's first birthday!
Holy cow, she's cute.

2. The Houle's- Mandy is one of those moms I want to be like when I grow up.
Only she's younger than me. :)
But, she has 3 adorable kids and is for reals a super woman.

3. The Jensen's- Speaking of super woman, this is my sister's blog.
She's a mama of 12.
Chrissy, I'm totally getting you a cape.
Ooo! It could double as an apron!
I think I'm on to something here.

4. Mel's Meadow- I know Melissa from high school
Her last name was Adams, mine was Anderson.
We sat by each other for years.
And her locker was always on top of mine.
She's beautiful, intelligent, and makes yummy food.

5. Covet the Dust- I met Amy at Craft Weekend.
We sat next to each other.
She makes me laugh, a lot.

6. The Blomgren's- How can you not love Kelly?
She has the sweetest, kindest heart and two little girls following in their mama's footsteps.

(I know I was only supposed to pick 5, but Kelly was the next on the list. 
I HAD to include her. 
My blog, my rules. :) )
