Few Reasons why I LOVE blogging..

Recently a few exciting things have happened for me in blogging world . So I thought I would dedicate a post to specifically mention just a few of the MANY reasons why I have come to LOVE blogging in just these short 4 months...who knows, maybe I can inspire some friends who haven't started their own yet to finally take the plunge. =)

Reason #1: You can always find GREAT giveaways. Thanks to Chrissy from Life as a CEO I just recently won one of her giveaways. I won a $25 restaraunt.com gift certificate...It totally made my day!! I can't wait to use it! =) She is also currently hosting another giveaway, this time she is giving away 3 seperate 1 month free trials to Netflix. You can check it out here.

Another cute giveaway that I just found is hosted by Teresa.... she has two really cute blogs: a family blog and an amazing Christmas blog. If you have some time, check them out too. =)

Reason #2: Finding a ton of INSPIRATION and ideas from all the blogs I follow. I constantly learn new ideas on everything from photography, crafts, decorating ideas, recipes, to motherhood.

Reason #3: I get to share a lil bit of our life with others, rather than just keeping Brayden's cuteness all to myself.
Reason #4: Fun lil Blog awards...Just like this one I recently received:
This time both Melissa at Getting All My Ducks in a Row and Ms. G at Teaching Today for Tomorrow were gracious enough to pass it on to me....how exciting is that?!? Thanks Melissa and Ms. G! Maybe I get excited to easily, but these things and comments just make my day!

The rules for the One Lovely Blog Award are: Accept the award; post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link. Pass the award on to 15 other blogs (sorry I shortened the list) that you've newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

My newly followed blogs I would like to pass it on to are:

My Blessed Life

He & Me +3

Happy Nester

The Love Shack

Shanty 2 Chic

Three B's and Me!

Life as a CEO

Sneaker Teacher

Reason #5: Meeting new people/blogging friends. This is officially my 73rd post and quickly approaching my 100th. I decided it would be a fun GOAL to have 50 followers by my 100th post. Can you help me out? If your not currently a "follower" and you enjoy reading our adventures...I would LOVE for you to "officially" follow along with us by clicking the Follow Me button on the right hand side. Thanks so much!
