Here are the 5 people I chose for "The Smile Award!"

1. Lindsey at imperfect. I've been reading her blog for months, and I've bought several cute things from her. She has three of the most gorgeous kids and she is incredibly talented and crafty! I love reading her blog and seeing what new things she's doing. She makes adorable party invitations and has such fun ideas for decorations!

2. Sarah at Short Stop. I've also been reading Sarah's blog for several months. She is hilarious! Her blog never fails to make me laugh. Her three precious little boys are so, so cute!

3. Alana at A Kiss, A Hug, and A Squeeze. Alana's blog is honest, sweet, funny, and warm. She is loves her family, and it shows.

4. Sara at The Best Days of My Life. Sara is the mom of two beautiful girls and is an extremely gifted writer. Reading her blog always leaves me thinking. She reminds me to appreciate my family, focus on what's important, and make each day count.

5. Tina at Baby Be Blessed. You've got to go to this site! They make the most adorable dolls with scriptures sewn right on the tummies. I won a doll on Free Friday, so I purchased another one so I'd have one for each girl. Tina was sweet enough to coordinate the fabrics so the girls would each have their favorite colors. Tina has such a heart for God, and looks for ways to make a difference.

Thank you, again!
