Blogging FYI- Awards/Buttons/GIVEAWAYS!!

I've always said that the best thing about blogging is the community it builds.

Sometimes I read a blog and think, "Hey! We could be friends in real life, fo' sho'!" (in a non stalker-ish way, of course).  It's really nice to connect with fellow bloggers whom you may have never had the chance to build a friendship, ever.

And that being said....

I would love to thank SUZ from COWS AND LASERS AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN for honoring me with this:

The Liebster Blog Award!!!
No, not lobster. Liebster.  I'm guessing rhymes with Leapster.

Liebster means beloved German.  And this award gets me all warm and fuzzy inside because one of the main reasons I keep blogging is because of my readers and the immense amount of support that we're able to share through our blogs.

Here are the rules:

1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment at their blog.

3. Post the Award on your blog.

4. Enjoy the love of some of the most supportive people on the Internet!

My top 5 picks (oooo this is always so hard for me!)

Krista @ My Journey to a Healthy Berg is a weight loss success and a pharmacy student! She always has great healthy advice in nutrition and fitness.  So inspiring!

Kimberly @ Healthy Strides is also a weight loss success and new mommy! She keeps it real with her healthy lifestyle and honestly her pictures of her baby boy just melt my heart.

Katie @ KatieRunsThis is a soon to be mommy (4 days and counting!) and still keeps her running game.  She's a true inspiration to me to stay active during my pregnancy and beyond.

Sara @ Words to Run By is another inspiring blogger.  I feel like I can relate to her because she's come so far from those first steps of running (which is where I am) and makes me feel like I can accomplish my goals, too.

Tara @ Dashing in Pearls is one of the first bloggers I've followed since starting my blog.  She's a teacher and loves running, cupcakes, and "things that sparkle" (honestly, who doesn't?).


Have you seen Blog Buttons before?

I've seen them around, but have never understood what they were all about.  Why would I want another blogger's button on my blog? Well, duh- because bloggers SWAP buttons! 

I learned this through my girl at Jenn's Adventures.

She is always helping me out with my technological aspirations (or lack thereof) and her most recent post has inspired me to create my own button.

Just gotta figure out which pic I want to use and then I can swap buttons with all you fellow bloggers out there!


And now for more fun stuff: GIVEAWAYS!

Both Tara @ Dashing in Pearls and Savanah @ What Makes Savanah Smile are having fab giveaways!

You have two (2) chances to win this great prize by entering their giveaways:
