I’m a 2018 Liebster Award Nominee!

Connect With Me:

Last week I received an email saying I had been nominated for the 2018 Liebster Award.  I had never heard of it, and couldn’t believe my little blog would be nominated for any kind of award, so the very first thing I did was to research what kind of scam this must be!  Well, turns out it’s not a scam!! I feel so honored that a fellow blogger nominated me!! So what is the  Liebster Award 2018?? In case you haven’t heard of it either, it’s an award that has been helping out new and upcoming bloggers since 2011. You can read more about it right here!

The Rules say:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and post a link to their blog on your blog.
  • Write a 150-300 word post about your favorite blog that is not your own. Explain why you like the blog and provide links.

First, I want to thank Angela with Oh Happy Davis for nominating me.   Her posts are always super positive and show the real world of motherhood.  I also love her posts on all the crazy National Holidays- one of my recent favorites is about National Spouses Day.  If you need a daily reminder to celebrate every day be sure to check out her blog!

Second, what is my favorite blog?  It’s super easy to decide because there is only one blog I read regularly and have been reading for about 10 years!! It’s Crystal Paine’s blog MoneySavingMom.com.   Her blog is what first inspired me to start couponing and she taught me ways to cut down our grocery budget.  Over the years I have been inspired watching her change from someone who HAD to coupon to make ends to meet, to an incredibly successful blogger who longer has to live on a rice and beans budget.  She recently started a second blog called Your Blogging Mentor which was a huge help in getting my own blog up and running!
