And the award goes to...

Me.  Well it did, thanks to Jennifer at So I Peed on a Stick.  She handed out 5 of these lovely badges to 4 other mommy bloggers and myself.  Pretty sweet of her, really.
So, why am I bragging? because now, I get to give out five of these bad boys {or girls} myself.

Here are the official rules:

To keep this award going and pass it along to other new deserving blogs, the recipient must now recognize five other bloggers with less than 200 followers that have really stood out in the crowd.
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!

My winners:
 Desert Gypsy Mama- My friend Katie in real life is blogging and I love it.  So many things are said that we just wouldn't talk about while chasing our babies my baby around the park and what not.  I love that she shares her thoughts, her photos and her fashion, she's a great mama and her son is the cutest! don't believe me check out my pumpkin patch photos, adorable.

Tattooed Momma- I met Lael digitally when she messaged me interested in participating in my handmade exchange. She lives in San Diego but is from Phoenix area and I love her little posts about her family and projects.  She always has cute photos and nice little stories to go along with.  Most recently she posted a recipe for homemade butterfingers.  yum.

Blinded by the Light- This mama has a lot of info about vaccines, pregnancy and more.  Her blog is wrapping up now though, she just had her second child, at home and that was the point of the blog, BUT you can still read through everything there and enjoy what she's posted.

That Mama Gretchen {okay, she has more than 200 followers but not much more AND she didn't when I started following her, so I'm including her. deal. with. it} Gretchen was one of the first blogger mamas I found after starting my blog {besides the big names like Sometimes Sweet and Bleubird Vintage} and I just love that we were pregnant the same time and our daughters are days apart.  It's fun to read about someone who has a little one almost the exact same age.  She is always sharing stories and I'm reading them thinking, "yes. yes. so true. yes."

365 Degrees-  I can't remember who found who first.  Thanks to top baby blogs I've met a lot of mamas and Darcy is one of them.  Another San Diego mama with a uber cute baby boy. She writes letters to her son and shares photos, along with some posts about cloth diapering and making her own baby food.

And there you have it, my top 5 mommy and baby blogs... and of course So I Peed on a Stick but since I already mentioned her and she already won the award, I thought I'd share the above 5 with you.  Hope you enjoy checking each one out.

Happy Award Winning!!
