Friday Pretties and Love

Today I am playing along with Joyce from I Love Pretty Little Things for Friday Pretties.

My pretty today:

I ♥ everything about this. So glamorous!

There has been some wonderful blog love lately and I feel so blessed to know these wonderful bloggers and am honored to receive these awards.

The sweet, inspirational Tywo at The Purple Fairy awarded me this blog award:

I would like to pass it along to these lovely ladies:
-Carmel at Carmel's Closet
-Diana at exPress-o
-Valerie at Red Vines for Breakfast
-Amanda at Homely One
-Cafe Bellini

Wonderful Julie the Brown Eyed Belle gave me this award:

The rules for this award are to pick five words that describe your blogging philosophy, motivation, and experience. So here are my five:

1. Pretty- One of my motivations for blogging is pretty things.
2. Happy- My blogging philosophy: keep it happy! Occasionally I might have something on the sad side, but there is a time for everything, but I mostly like to keep things happy!
3. Inspiring- My other philosophy for blogging is to blog about things that inspire me and hope they might inspire someone else too.
4. Unique- I like unique things. There are so many wonderfully unique blogs out there. This is what made me start blogging.
5. Blessed- My experience with blogging can be summed up with this word. I feel so blessed with the amount of support I feel from fellow bloggers and for the wonderful people I have met.

I'd like to pass the Blog With Substance award to:
-Anna at Cornflake
-Trish at Pink Preppy Lilly Lover
-Lisa at Bumpkin On A Swing
-Debby at Inspired Design
-Shari at Little Blue Deer
-Tywo at The Purple Fairy

Sweet Amanda of Homely One and beautiful Trish from Pink Preppy Lilly Lover gave me this award:

I'm passing The Versatile Blogger award to:
-Dawn at The Alternative Wife
-Georgia at Simply Smile Photography and Going Glam With Gi Gi
-Carrie at This Free Bird
-Taj at Gorgeous Glam
-Erika at Tiptoe Butterfly

I love you all!
