Liebster Award

To be honest this past Sunday was not being very nice to me
and I was feeling a little down.  So, to my surprise when I logged
into my email the lovely and awesome Robin at Stories to Tell
had delivered me a little pick me up.
(Someone knew I needed it!)

The Liebster Blog Award

I was super excited to say the least!

A little explanation...

The Liebster Award is given to fairly new blogger with
200 followers or less and to be honest it makes my heart sing
to know that someone is reading & enjoying (key word)
what I have to say!

So, thank you so much to Robin for
my little ray of sunshine on a fairly blah Sunday!
Now, my job is to nominate 5 more blogs with this fantastic award!
So with out further ado...

1. Aubrey @ The Kinch Life
I have to say that I think Aubrey is one awesome lady! 
She has an amazing personality and I have to read her blog daily.
Congratulations Aubrey!

2. Amanda @ Little Mrs. Can't Be Wrong
I recently stumbled upon Amanda's blog and I automatically
loved her first of all because the name of her blog and secondly
because she is a Gamecocks fan (my alma mater).
Congratulations Amanda!

3. Meg @ Sweetly Complicated
I just think Meg is super cute.  I also love her awesome blog
design, super simple and completely adorable.
Congratulations Meg!

4. Crissy @ A Berry Sweet Life
Crissy is this adorable southerner with an awesome blog design
plus her Blog name is fantastic!
Congratulations Crissy!

5. Meg @ Something Beautiful
Meg caught my attention during the weekly
 link up Oh, How Pinteresting.  She pins some awesome
 pics and we have a lot of the same taste!
Congratulations Meg!

If you girls have already been award I completely apologize,
I tried to make sure but to be honest I am just not sure!

So ladies here are your next steps:
1. Choose five up and coming blogs with less than 200 followers to award
2. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
3. If you're not already a follower of their blog, that might be a great way
to show appreciation for the award. 
4. Post the award on your blog. Be sure to link back to the 5
blogs you awarded so that others can visit them.

Hubs in the Hot Seat

I have found the cutest link up with Ashlee at And They Lived Happily Every After called...

I thought it would be a great way to incorporate the Hubs in a little bit of the blogging
world and I also thought he would give some pretty interesting answers!

Enjoy My Hubs in the Hot Seat!

1)What is the one thing your dream home must have?

It has to have a Man Cave!

2) What is your favorite present I've ever given you?

It's a toss-up between my iPod and my Beer Kit.

3) What is your favorite way to spend a Saturday?

Hanging out with the wife having some drinks.

4) If you could have dinner with one person living or not(but not me), who would it be?

My mama. (Side note - Jason mom passed away when he was 13)

5) Who do you think I would choose?

Your Papa (He is exactly right!)

6) How many kids do you want?

3 (He already has 2)

7) If you have a boy, do you want to name him after you?


8) What's your favorite vacation we've ever been on?

Jamaica (Our Honeymoon @ Couples Negril)

9) Describe yourself in one word.

(I knew he would say this...I was laughing as I was
reading the question to him because I already knew the answer)

Happy Tuesday Lovies!

Sponsor Swap

Hi everyone!

I have become completely smitten with blogging since I started
up in January and I cannot seem to get enough.  So I have decided that it is time for
A Little Bit of Sparkle to start a Sponsor Swap.

The Terms...

I will be taking up to 10 sponsors for April and May, and this includes a
Sponsor Spotlight and your button displayed through May on the blog. 

All I ask is that you do the same in return.

Is so, contact me and we can take on the blogging world together!

I can't wait!

Absence Makes the Heart Grow Stronger

I know, I know...
I have been absent from the blogging world for about
a week and a half and I have missed you guys terribly.

My excuse...
A crazy work schedule.
I found out last Tuesday (and last minute at that) that I was
going to be traveling to Boston for some intense training for work.

To be honest I was not happy about it at all!
I had never been away from the Hubs for over two days and I was
seriously not looking forward to an entire week.
Pathetic I know, but I completely love the guy and I have to say that
I really love our simple life at home...together, not apart.

Well needless to say I made it, but not without a few tears.
(Yes I am a little bit of a baby!)

But now I am super duper happy to be back home with my little family!!

I thought I would share a few of the pics I took while traveling
and most of them are of food and a little booze...go figure !

Reese's Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake Cheesecake...Yes Please!!

I hope everyone had an incredible weekend
and an even better Monday!

March Photo-A-Day

I decided to participate in #marchphotoaday after seeing so many that participated 
during February.  I have to say that I am really glad that I has been
great fun since I started and it makes me more conscious of
picture taking (something I am really bad at).

If you have Instagram you should give it a try, and follow me here.


Day 1: Up - Our upward view at dinner
Day 2: Fruit - In my beautiful Floral Fusion bowl
Day 3: My Neighborhood - On a gloomy day
Day 4: Bedside - My side of the bed

Hope everyone is having a great Monday!

It's Friday...YIPPIE!!

I am so happy that it is Friday. 
Does anyone feel like they live for Friday's? 
Lately I do!

Today I am linking up with lovely Lauren at From My Grey Desk for...


Next up are a few highlights from my week...ENJOY!

1.  Downton Abbey - I have officially become obsessed with this show, so much so that I have watched every episode this week. (Yes I am a DORK!)  It completely hooked me and I had to know what happened.  If you haven't seen the shows you can check them out here (there is only 4 days left to view for free) and submerge yourself in all things Downton Abbey. 

2.  Home cooked meals - The Hubs and I have had some yummy and delicious suppers
this week and one of them I even prepared myself, I also overheard the Hubs saying
"it was on time", so I take that as a compliment from the cook in my house.  

3.  My Weekly Nail Challenge - My goal is to paint my nails a new color every week, so this week I am rocking Essie Mademoiselle and Essie A Cut Above, it super sparkly!

4.  Social Media Buttons - The amazing talented Allison from Green Tangerine Designs hooked me up with these fantabulous social media buttons.  I am so excited to have them and they look great with my blog layout.

5.  Date night with my awesome step-daughter Taylin - The boys had baseball practice, so me and Super Tay headed to Mexican for a girls night.  We had a BLAST!!

Hope everyone has a FABULOUS weekend!
