Another Liebster Honor!

I just found out today that I’ve been honored to receive my second Liebster award!  Thank you so much to That Texas Lady, who has an awesome blog that you need to check out – if you haven’t done so already.  Word has it she is considering a Top Shot run at some point in the future, and for that she has my complete blessing, undying devotion, and greatest encouragement :0)

The meaning of the German word, “liebster,” is “beloved person, liked very much, preferred above others, liked or loved above others.”  And while I know that none of us could pick just our very favorite top few blogs for this award, many of which are new to us, it’s nice to know that someone likes us enough to share us with their world.

Liebster Award rules:

1. Copy and paste the award on our blog.

2. Link back to the blogger who gave us the award

3. Pick our five favorite blogs with less than 200 followers, and leave a comment on their blog to let them know they have received the award.

4. Hope that the five blogs chosen will keep spreading the love and pass it on to five more blogs.

I have listed five of my favorites in the first Liebster post, but will add five more now, which include, but are not limited to:

1.  That Texas Lady – Yes, I am sending the love right back :0)  Truth is, I’ve been enjoying her blog for a while now.

2.  Female and Armed – Lynne is an awesome new friend who knows how to share the love.

3.  The Gun Blog Black List – The one that promotes so many of us, and from whom I have received many visitors.

4.  Gravy and Biscuits – A great blogger, who reminds me of my need to prep.

5.  A Girl and Her Gun – A new blog to me, and one that I’m really enjoying catching up on – although I’m way behind the curve on this one, because she comes HIGHLY recommended by pretty much everyone else in the blogosphere 🙂

So is there someone in your life that you need to share some love with?  Well, go ahead; after all, this is February, the month of liebster – I mean, love :0)

Happy Shooting!

Debutante Hunters

Check out this short film, Debutante Hunters, that was entered into the Sundance Film Festival:


The girls featured are from the low country of South Carolina, where my son and his family live, and it’s a great little short film that represents hunting in a positive light.  It’s not gory, but if you don’t like hunting, don’t watch the film.

Debutante Hunters was the winner of the Yahoo! Audience Award, so check it out!

I’d like to thank the Academy…

…and Lynne at, who bestowed this award upon me! LOL. Lynne is a fellow gun instructor and blogger, who has been so kind, encouraging, and supportive in my blogging experience, and she brightened my day today with this lovely surprise.

And while I can’t list them below, because they have over 200 followers, I would also like to thank Beth at, Becky Lou at, and Natalie at The above-listed ladies have many followers and did not have to take time out of their busy lives to encourage me and help me get started, but they have done so, and I can’t thank them enough for that.

Regardless of our hobbies, passions, or walks of life, we ladies need to encourage one another more often today, knowing that many of us have gone through difficult days and that we need our sisterhood to support us and build us up.

So, that being said, below is my list of favorite blogs under 200 followers. If you are on the list, I hope you will share the love and pass this award on to five others. Here are the rules:

1. Copy and paste the award above into your blog.

2. Link back to the blogger who gave you the award – me :0).

3. Pick your five favorite blogs with less than 200 followers, and leave a comment on their blog to let them know they have received the award.

So here’s my list (and although I would definitely list some that Lynne has, I will pick five new ones):

1. – An awesome young women who is a lover of God, a Rifle Marksman, American Heritage Instructor, and Administrator for Project Appleseed (see my sidebar for link)

2. – A young, newlywed, city girl (very different from me), who is just beginning to exercise her 2nd Amendment rights and get into guns

3. – Am enjoying her hunting experiences and humor

4. – A new blog to me (one benefit from having this award and searching other blogs to like :0)

5. – Love the recipes!

Pass the love along!
