The rules for the Liebster Award are:
1. Thank the person who gave the award and link back to their blog.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know!
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog post.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love too! 

*like jules, I personally want to add to the rules by saying a little something about the blogs below!* 

So, here are my top 5!

brittany is married to my cousin brent. 
they are the best couple and have dated since highschool, which means we have all had the pleasure of knowing and loving brittany for quite some time.
together they have the cutest little girls, grier and ardynn. 
her blog is full of the girls,
 their cute pups, their incredible house and the cutest little things they are up to on a daily basis.
she literally is super mom!

i get school girl giddy when kristina updates her blog.
she is such a sweetheart, so incredibly creative and just so stinkin' cute!
i have known kristina forever and have enjoyed cheering with her, helping her highschool bf shop for the most perfect gift for her (ha!) and now enjoy in a non-pyscho way catching up with her and her cutie patootie ellie trough her blog.
i know you'll love her too!

i can't say enough about kelly mann.
she seriously should have her own television show on hdtv.
the things she and her husband brandon have done to their home is incredible and so magazine worthy.
and that's not all, kelly also is a photographer, a graphic designer, an interior designer, a former younglife leader and a lover of high heels. :) 
she seriously does it all and does it all very well.
you're the best kelly!

i have only had the pleasure of meeting beth for one afternoon over a year ago when she took my families pictures.
at the time, her dad was the high school football coach for the cooper cougars and she was in town for thanksgiving, so somehow my mom got hooked up with her and she snapped our pics.
we all loved her and i remember thinking just how cute and professional and real she was.
so, i've been stalking her every since. :)
she has the best taste, the cutest girls, the coolest pictures.
she is the mind behind this incredible birthday party and has the funnest blog posts.
i love it when she updates.

how do i 'know' all of these incredibly talented ladies?!?
sharon is redbud designs.
she designed june's birth announcement and i used one of her designs this year for our christmas card.
i love everything she creates, so so much.
and. . .!
her second daughter august is about a month older than june so i love to read up on what she's up to, just makes me so excited to see what june will be doing next.
cutest girls.

thank you again julia!
will you do a tutorial on how you do your cute top knot?
i know you've taught me once, but the world, i am dying to know.:)


  1. Thanks Jessica!! This is so sweet! :)

  2. Jessica! I don't have an acceptance speech prepared! Haha, you're so sweet, thanks. I'm just seeing this bc I've been sans computer for awhile. Im at a computer though now so I had to catch with sweet June, she is getting so pretty.

    Also, this one apparently will let me post a comment. Usually i get a notice that I can't comment on your blog! (and some others too). Who knows but if for some reason they do get to you then you've been emailed so many times with my attempts!

  3. jess... you are too too sweet... sorry it took me a million years to post my reponse, but the rat race continues around here, leaving only post midnight hours to blog. i do hope you know that i appreciate your kind words, my dear... hoping you all have the merriest of merry christmases... love you!

    i can never comment on your blog either!!?? ... i have tried several times to post here, but it says that i'm not "authorized" :o) ... not a surprise, you know me & my wacky innappropriate comments :o)
