A blog award? Well, thanks :)

As previously discussed today I have been a slacker blogger the last couple of weeks, and I really miss it! I have tried my best to stay on top of reading your blog posts and participating in my favorite link-up; but as far as real life posting, and commenting, I've been MIA! I got an e-mail today from one of my favorite bloggers, Amber at Living in the Moment. She told me she had nominated me for a blog award so I thought I'd take a few minutes tonight and say, Thanks Amber, and share a few things with you guys! First off, if you don't already follow Amber, go check her out! She will soon be marrying Brad, which I've known my whole life...long story short...Brad's aunt is my aunt by marriage, so our families celebrate holiday's and birthday's we might as well just be cousins :) She will keep you up to date on any Bachelor/Bachelorette news, in case you missed it! She also has fabulous taste, and shares makeup, style, and home decor ideas! Definitely check her out!

So here's the deal, I'm going to tell you a little bit about myself, and then nominate a few of my favorite bloggers to do the same! I hope you guys will check them out!

I'm Lacey, the Recovering Shopaholic, I use the term recovering loosely. I am about to celebrate my 25th birthday, and I couldn't be happier about where my life is at this very moment. I was born and raised in the South, and wouldn't change a thing about it. I am a sinner, saved by Grace, and I love, love, love my God. I am an only child, and have a family that can't be beat. I am in love with a good lookin' redhead, and can't wait to spend forever with him. I am very fortunate to have a great group of friends. My best girls and I couldn't be any more different, but when you sit us down at a dinner table, none of that matters, I don't know what I'd do without those 2 girls! I have a sweet little Yorkie, Laney. I work at a job I am fortunate enough to love, and have for almost 6 years. I love to do almost anything, from fishing with my sweetheart, to craft nights with my girls...I just feel truly blessed to live this life I live. I hope you'll follow me along my journey...I don't blog about any one particular thing, just life in general, but occasionally it gets exciting!

I want to share a few of my favorite bloggers with you guys...go check them out...

Julianne at Just a Simple Life 
She would be one of the 2 best girls I talked about above. She's like me, a random assortment on her blog, but definitely worth checking out! She and I are headed to The Big Apple (All the way from deep South Arkansas) in December, so that will definitely be worth checking out!

I follow Jenn on Twitter, and absolutely adore her blog. She is getting ready to marry her sweetheart very soon, and she blogs about some of the neatest things. Definitely go check her out.

From fitness, to home decor, she blogs about an assortment of things. I think secretly we might be soul sisters, because from what I can tell she might love shoes, purses, and make up just as much as I do :) 

I follow Savanah on Twitter and Blogger, and she is always so sweet. When I was a newbie blogger, which I still qualify would always answer my questions, and help me any way she could! She has the cutest blog! You definitely have to check out her recent vacation pictures, and the pics of her sweet fur babies, I'm telling you, I'm not much of a cat girl, but her Lucy will melt your heart. 

Now, most of these girls are already well known in the "blog world", so it's likely you already have had the pleasure of checking them out, but if not swing by, I know they'd love to have ya! :)

I hope you're all doing great, I think things have finally slowed down enough I can get back in the swing of things with my blog...and that makes me excited! Have a great rest of the week, I'll talk to y'all very soon!

Thank you so much!! I'll blog about it soon

Hope you're having a great day girlie!

Savanah said...

you are so so sweet girl!!! :) I am so glad that I have met you through blogging and twitter!

Amber said...

So basically when Brad and I are married we will be cousins. Might as well....the your aunt is married to his aunt through marriage stuff is just confusing. HA!

Have I mentioned that Brad is trying to get me on the Dave Ramsey plan? FAIL! He called me at work a few days ago just to ask me if I have any current debt and if I have a $1000 emergency fund.
