Twofer Friday!

Oct 21, 2011

Happy Friday, ghouls! (Get it, because it's almost Halloween?) :p

Today has magically turned out to be an Ashlee kinda day because I'm sharing an award she gave me and then I'm copying her recent ABC's post. Go check her out at On The Front Porch Looking In - she's a sweet Nebraskan girl and we bonded over working in the same field (Go, PR Girls!) and have been blog buds ever since!

Introducing her today is also pretty perfect because Ashlee & I are joining up for something REALLY fun and perfect for Fall! Tune in next Tuesday for the news!


Thanks Ashlee for The Liebster blog award! It's given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. Liebster is a German word meaning dear, sweet, kind, nice, good, beloved, lovely, kindly, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome. 
The rules for the Liebster Award are:
1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top five 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 too!

Here are my 5:

1. Courtney with Court on the Coghills. She is one of my newest preggo buddies and I've learned a lot just by reading about her pregnancy journey. She is the sweetest and is busy preparing for her first baby (a girl!) due in December!

2. Elizabeth with The Life of David, Elizabeth & Peyton. She is one of my first ever blog buddies and we get along so well, I wish we lived closer. Her stories about daily life with her boyfriend and adorable pup are my favorite and always get me laughing!

3. Elizabeth with This Little Blog of Mine. She's another furbaby momma and loves to shop too, what's not to love? I can tell she's a girl with a good heart :) Go show her some love!

4. Camille with From Texas, With Love. I love finding other Texans and love her blog name so much! She's a lot of fun and is also a strong lady, handling a long distance relationship like a champ!

5. Dana with Exploring the Unknown. I'm so glad I stumbled on her blog a few months ago, she is seriously the kindest person! She posts about her fun adventures with her hubby and friends in their new city of Nashville, her crazy cute cat and working as a teacher.

Go check these ladies out, you won't be dissapointed

So funny! Was reading someone else's blog & came across this ABC, too! I want to get to it today or this wkend. Must skim thru blogs then homework >.<

I hate puttin laundry away, too. Even if I have the closet I want. But somehow I don't like it when B puts it away cos I'm OCD. Haha. I lose all ways.

It's so funny you mention boy shorts. I think they are totally the new thing, more than thongs! Lol.

That's too weird, in a cool way - my family's nickname for me is Jekka too! .. Although my hubby is the only one to spell it like yours. They all usually spell it "Jecka" :)
