She is such a beautiful, God loving woman, and devoted wife and is so inspirational! She also has the cutest most precious nephews!! I totally admire you girl:)

So I have to give this award to 15 blogs that I think are WONDERFUL! So here they are and why:

1. Kristin @ IowaGirlEats : I absolutely LOVE her blog! She has the best recipes and is such a healthy, fun woman!! She has a lot of great exercise tips and is very motivational. Also, on Thursdays she does a 3 question Thursday that is super fun!

2. Kristin @ ChasRunner: She is such a dedicated runner!! I love following her through all of her training! She just finished a relay in Colorado with 11 other runners that was totally hardcore! Definitely go check her recaps out!!

3. Niki @ CrossCountrySquared: This girl is awesome, not only because she has my name but because she is super fit and is a triathlete!! I don’t think I could ever keep up with her but I would love to try! Keep it up girl!!

4. Lauren @ Walk with me on this journey called life: She is such a sweet, caring, wonderful, woman who truly loves God!! She has such a strong faith that I really admire I strive to live up to! Can’t wait to officially meet you girl! Although, I feel like I’ve know you forever!!

5. Allison @ GreenDogWine: I actually found her blog after she was my partner for The Simple Life Challenge! And boy am I glad I found her! She is incredibly witty and funny and always gives you a good laugh while reading! Not to mention the cutest pics of her doggie, Lando!! I think Lando and Sadie would be great friends!

9. Susan @ Nurse on the run: I have a lot in common with Susan, she is also a nurse and runner! Although, she is a SUPER speedy runner completely opposite of me!! I love her blog because it is a good balance between her nursing stories and her running! And I love being amazed at how fast she is!

10. Melissa @ SweetMelissa : She is just what her blog name says she is, Sweet Melissa!! Although I’ve never met her in person, I know we would be GREAT friends!! Love reading about her kids at school and all the other aspects of her life! Plus she lives in the same town as me!!
