Surprise...An Award...For Reals?

I woke up on Saturday morning to 10 comment messages in my inbox. I was overwhelmed with joy. When I had gone to bed I had 70 followers through GFC. 70 people are actually reading what I write and commenting on it! I hope you know that this just encourages me to write MORE!

Within one of those emails was a surprise! I like surprises, I had a surprise party once, but my "boyfriend" in the 8th grade totally gave it away. Anyways, surprises, I like them. Just something you should know about me. Packages in the mail I didn't know where coming, presents from hubs, and so on.

You had me at...SURPRISE!

Liebster Award you ask? Thank you to Randee @ Randee's Organized Chaos for bestowing this grand award on me:)
{I think she just likes me because I talked about my organized chaos this week}

In the words of Randee...

The origins of the Liebster Blog award are somewhat unclear but the general consensus is that it originated in Germany, Liebster meaning favorite or dearest, to showcase bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. Upon accepting the award the recipient must then pass it on to three more blogs of note.
Here are the rules:
1- Choose three up and coming blogs to award the Liebster to. Blogs must have less than 200 followers.
2- Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
3- Post the award on your blog. List the bloggers you gave the award to with links to their sites.

Here are my three choices!!
Julia from Black Tag Diaries- {I'm so glad she only had 199 fans when I wrote this!} She writes about her life and hosts Thankful Thursday Link up.
Aleks over at Aleks Handmade- She hosted an awesome Journal swap last month and is always posting about her latest cake making adventures.
Teresa at Stale Cupcakes, Cold Coffee - She's new to blogging, and write all about life. I laugh every time I read a post.

Thank you Randee for bestowing honor on me!

I am happy to report that I lost another pound this week! We had a busy week an date out more than at home, but good lunches, and exercise and continued good decisions even in restaurants!
Starting weight 142.2 Today's weight 137.6
The challenge ends on Feb 27th so I still have 2 weeks to shed those lbs.
