Meeting New Friends

I had the opportunity to participate in the 
2012 New Year Blogging Party Gift Exchange and Link UP (that's quite a mouthful, right?:)

It is such a fun way to meet and get to know another blogger and do a fun little gift exchange :)
My partner was Julie over at Love Foster ! It has been so much fun getting to know Julie!  She is a young mama with a precious baby daughter, Abigail.  She is recently married and always has the latest updates on her favorites shows, so if you're a fan of Gossip Girl you MUST go follow Julie's blog rightnow!
I love this picture of her with Abigail, they both look so incredibly happy!  I know that Julie has a heart full of love for this little girl :) aren't they both adorable?!
I sent Julie a couple of headbands, and she sent me a gift from Victoria's Secret.  When I told my husband that his eyes got really wide and he looked a little surprised, haha (i may have stuck my butt out and slapped it, too *snort* tmi??)...but, it was lip gloss, lotion and eyeliner ;)  The lipgloss is the perfect glittery, shimmery pink and the lotion smells so yummy and i'm super excited about the eyeliner because Jeremy has a fetish for smoky eyes (haha, tmi again??)
Thank you, Julie! it's been so much fun!

and...in other news, Keri over at The Baker Family Blog gave me the (much coveted, i'm sure) Liebster Blog Award!  Thanks Keri! :)  And, as part of the rules, (these are OFFICIAL rules, people, not something to be messed with!;) I am linking up and presenting the Liebster Award to my top 5 blogs with under 200 followers...so here goes:
My Liebster Blog Award Picks: 
there are so many amazing blogs out there, it was hard to narrow it down to just 5, plus a lot of my faves have over 200 followers (you don't even want to know what happens if you break the Liebster Award rules, don't even want to chance it!)

Liebster in German means dearest, beloved, or favorite, and it is for bloggers with under 200 followers!
{The Rules}
1. Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog.
2. Link back to the blogger who awarded you.
3. Copy & paste the blog award on your blog.
4. Reveal your 5 blog picks.
5. Let them know you chose them by leaving a comment on their blog.
So, if you have a minute, go check out some awesome bloggy goodness!
