Choosing 5 blogs is going to be hard as I dont know too many bloggers out there yet. Although I have come across SO many fantastic blogs and have spent hours visiting them and SMILING .... so here goes.

1. Merrie (my lil buddy) at Where The Blackbirds Sing. This girl has the best personality I know, must be the Canadian in her:) EVERY time I talk to her I laugh HARD!! I love visiting her blog, its so warm and comfy and her babies are just the cutest, Mr Murphy has stolen my heart. Merrie is super genuine and I am proud to say she is my friend:)

2. Carolyn at Cranberry Crossings . She is the nicest person I know, and has ALWAYS been there for me. We have been through alot together over the past 3 years and there is not a single thing that I cant talk to her about. Shes the friend I look to for advice, guidence, praise, we cry together, we laugh together, shes like a mom to me and has a very special place in my heart. I also love visiting her blog, shes a very talented lady as you can see by her crafts.

3. Shari at Cranapple Christmas. Shari is super nice and makes you feel instantly welcome when visiting her awesome blog, which btw I visit EVERY day! I just recently met Shari and cant wait to get to know her better.

4. Tammy at Country Girl At Home Tammy has a BIG heart, you can read through her postings. I recently met Tammy as well and am following her kitchen remodel as she posts pics, AMAZING! Looking forward to getting to know her better

5. Tracey at The Shabby Blue Cottage is another talented blogger who takes beautiful photos. Again, new to meeting her and looking forward to knowing her.

Thank you again Carolyn!

Hi Jenn, I been browsing your blog and I think it's great! I love the old trunk and I think 50-55 is a good starter and I would not go over 65.00. I love your hair I think thick is good, it's not wirey or anything. I love your flowers and the kids looked so cute peeking through those leaves. I also think that your entertainment shelf turn out great. I'll be keeping in touch. Deb P.S. congrats on your award!

Hi Jenn!

Aww...thank you so much for the smile award! Actually this is my favorite award yet....because if you can make someone smile, that's such a good thing! I'm glad I found your blog! I haven't been able to "visit" around as much since we started our kitchen project, but I'm going to try to do better!

I love this trunk. What does CL stand for? I hope he accepts your offer and I wish you luck! Let us know! It's absolutely gorgeous and I think the price you are offering is fair! :)

Have a great weekend, Jenn!
