Giveaway Winner and 2 Pleasant surprises!

Well everyone the Ramsign giveaway is over and we have a Winner! The winner of the Ramsign House # Plaque goes to....drum roll...Kelly Rossow from housetalkn. Congratulations Kelly, I hope you will love the Plaque! Thank you to everyone who entered my first won't be the last!

Onto other things from this week, I was greatly surprised when I opened my email the other day to find an email from Tina @ Tinas place for this and that telling me she was giving me an award...the Liebster award! It brought a smile to my face to know that someone actually thought of me and my blog. Thank you so much Tina! :)
However it doesn't end there! Tonight right before I went to write this post I opened my email to find another surprise! Tracey from Breathing English Air has also just bestowed upon me the Liebster Blog award...I couldn't believe it..2 in 2 days! The funny thing about that was that Tracey is one of the blogs I was going to give the award to as well. So now I am not sure if that means I need to give it to 10 people since I received it twice I think I will stay with the 5. Here is what the Liebster Award means and what it's about.

This award is given to bloggers with less than 200 followers, in the hopes that it will bring many new friends/followers.
Leibster is German and means 'dearest' or 'beloved but it can also mean 'favorite'. The idea of the Leibster award is to bring attention to blogs with less than 200 followers. So, in the spirit of good fun I am passing this award on to five other bloggers. Please stop by and visit them.

The Rules are:
1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

2. Reveal your five picks for the award and let them know.

3. Post the award on your blog.

4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the blogshare-other bloggers.

5. Finally and the best rule of all..........have fun and spread the love!

Here are my picks for the Liebster award in no specific order. I enjoy reading each of these blogs and hope you will give them a visit!

Lastly I recently won a giveaway over at Megans Lovely Blog Splendid Design. I won the book Cake Pops By Bakerella. It's a really fun book with so many cute ideas for different types of cake pops. My kids love all the pictures and we will be attempting to make some for Valentines day! Thanks again Megan for the book :)

  Thanks for stopping on over, Hope you have a great weekend!

Till next time,

  3. I am so glad to hear there will be other give-a-ways, because I sure let this one slip past me! Congrats to the winner. I haven't been in blogland too much since the new year began, so I guess that is how I missed it. Congrats on your awards, and I hope the new year brings more wonderful things for you!

  4. Oh that cake pops book looks so darn cute. Have you tried making them yet. I wonder if it is very hard. They sure are all the rage.

  5. Congratulations on the award and those cake pops look too yummy! What fun it will be to make them. I have never made any. Thanks for stopping by! Yes, I lived there in Pine Mountain for a couple of years before moving to Atlanta, then off to the military. I really enjoyed the area there. Where is your hubby from?? Mine is from Barranquitas.

  6. Thanks so much for your sweet visit my way! I came right over to say hello! Have fun making V-day cake pops with your kiddos! I hope you'll share pics of the final product! Have a wonderful day!
