Weekend Blog Hop Till You Drop and a Blog Award!!!

Hey party people of the blogosphere, welcome to the Weekend Blog Hop till you Drop!


Melanie from Melanie OTG was so thoughtful and passed on the Liebster blog award to me. Thanks Melanie, I really appreciate this award!!! The idea of this award it to recognize blogs that you love, and it helps these bloggers get more readers.

Here are my top 5 recipients:

1. Mom to 8 Blog:  Yes dude, you read that right!  Annmarie is the mother to eight kids ranging in age from  9 to 23 years old.  As a mom who only has two kids, I really appreciate her comments.  She can always be counted on to leave a kind word or a virtual pat on the back when you need it.  Her love for her family is palpable in her writings and my favourite post is entitled, “I grew up with my first child“.

2. The Jack Chronicles:  Devon is the mom to a cute little toddler named Jack.  If you tuned in last week, you would have read my interview with a blogger post featuring The Jack Chronicles.  Devon and I have similar interests – travel, food, toddler stuff etc., especially travel, so it’s no surprise that my favourite page on her blog is her ‘Let’s go‘ page.

3. Wrinkled Mommy:  Debbie is mom to six kids (ages 26 to 3) and has an alpaca farm.  I am in love with her weekly letters to her family and more than once I’ve been known to both sniffle and smile my way through them.

4. Keepsakes By Katherine Blog:  Katie is one of the warmest bloggers I’ve ever met!  She is kind and sweet and can always be counted on to send you a lovely e-mail when you least expect it.  You might know her from Katherine’s Corner, but recently she started a new blog called Keepsakes By Katherine to share wedding photography,wedding tips, tricks, diy, etc.  I can’t seem to stop pinning pictures from her site.

5. Mom’s Madhouse:  OMG(osh) Sharon is hilarious!!!  She’ s a mom of 6:  five boys and one girl.  Sharon cheekily shared that she began her blog to torture her children. 🙂  Her post, ‘Take me honey, I’m yours‘ sums up her humour succinctly.

Okay award winners, here’s what you do once you’ve received this award:

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. Hope that the people you’ve sent the award to forward it to their five favourite bloggers and keep it going!

Alright!  Let’s get ready to hop y’all!!!

Blog Hop Rules: This is a Fun Linky hop to find other blogs we can follow!

1. Follow the hostess, Epic Mom a.k.a Char from The Epic Adventures of a Modern Mom, and be sure to leave a comment so that I can follow you back.
