Good morning friends and happy Friday to you all! What a week it has been! Between Paczkis for Fat Tuesday, getting the four boxes of girl scout cookies I ordered, meeting up with friends for dinner, cooking, working out, Messy Jess C.'s face lift, and everything else, including being awarded my first blogger award (see below), it has been one great week.

Part of this excitement also comes from Preethi of Lace, etc. awarding me the Liebster Blog Award! Writing Messy Jess C. for just two months, this is my first award and I am very honored. Thank you Preethi!

I am also excited to now have the privilege of choosing five up and coming blogs to award the Liebster Blog Award to. So, without further adieu the winners of the Liebster Blog Award are...

Lifestyles by I&A Design
Ok, I must confess that this blog belongs to my sister Ilyssa and her business partner, Alicia, but in all seriousness, these ladies are amazing interior designers. They have a lot of experience in the business and a great eye for design. They are based in Bucks County Pennsylvania, but have worked on projects throughout the country. Show their blog some love!

Aspiring Chic
Let me tell you about Rachel. She is stylish, crafty, and her weekly High Five for Friday posts can pull anyone out of a funk. Check out her blog and follow her folks!

Cookin' and Kickin'
Because one of my goals of the year is to become a better cook, in addition to reading a ton of fashion blogs, I also love reading food blogs and finding new and amazing (and easy) recipes. Kaela over at Cookin' and Kickin' has lots of great recipes and fun food ideas. Be sure to check her blog out!

Diary of a Modern-Day Lady
Sarah B.C. has great fashion tips and styles. You can tell she works hard to come up with the perfect post. This is definitely a blog to follow.

Fit, Crafty, Stylish and Happy
Cassidy's blog encompasses lots of things I love - fashion, fitness, and, of course, food. She gives other bloggers a chance to link up healthy recipes each Thursday, posts videos of workouts I promise you will want to follow after seeing how fit she is, and has some cute outfit combinations. Be sure to pay her a visit over at Fit, Crafty, Stylish and Happy.

Now, if you've been awarded the Liebster Blog Award below are the rules:
  • Choose 5 up and coming blogs with less than 200 followers to award.
  • Give thanks to the blogger that awarded you by linking back to them. Follow them too for extra appreciation.
  • Post the award on your blog along with the links to the 5 bloggers you chose. (it's also nice to leave them a comment letting them know!). 
Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
