Some Giraffe Cuteness!

Before the giraffes, Suzanne made my day during Gustav, giving me my first blog award!  It was so very unexpected and she said such nice things!  I am honored and encouraged that my ramblings mean something to someone.  I "met" Suzanne in blogland during my contest!  She is a fellow sister in Christ too!  Her blog is a happy spot where she graciously lets you into her world and makes you feel like you are a dear friend!  I look forward to hearing her outlook on life! 

There are rules, and here they are:

1. Put the award on your blog. (done)

2. Add a link to the person who awarded you and say something nice about them. (done up above)

3. Name at least 4 fellow bloggers for this award.

4. Add links for the recipients.

5. Leave a comment to let the recipients know they have received the award.

Picking winners is so many great blogs out there....but these are ones I'm excited to go check and leave feeling inspired/encouraged/uplifted!  So the awards go to (in no particular order):  

Thanks ladies for sharing your life with me!

Now, giraffe cuteness:

My mom sent me this super cute card!  I just had to share (she sooooo knows me!)

Kaity showed this bag on her blog the other day and I just had to have it!!!  what can I say....I have a weakness (several actually!)  I bought it on Etsy from Ching's Tote Shop  (my very first Etsy purchase in fact)  See the back is cute too!
I think I feel like spinning tonight....we'll see how it goes!

Thank you for the big blue ribbon! (I've won yellow and red ribbons, but never a blue before!!!) You are so sweet! And you've given us so many fun links in this post that I don't know where to start ~ maybe with that etsy shop because that tote is way cute! tyvm, friend!

I saw you in my feed and was so excited you were back - I can't even tell you how much I missed your blog while you were without power!! And, then I read your post and saw the blue ribbon... huge thanks!

I love the bag - so darn cute. My friend is obsessed with giraffes.
