The Stylish Blogger Award

Thanks so much to MomRunningFromCancer for awarding me the Stylish Blogger Award.  I never get awarded anything.  First, I’d like to thank the Academy…Oh…it’s not that kind of award.  Well, I’m still flattered.  Smile


Here is how the Award works:

  • Make a post + Link back to the person who awarded you this award 
  • Share 7 things about yourself
  • Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers so we can share the love (although I think 15 is a bit of overkill, so I’m going to follow the lead of those who have gone before me, and stick to 7 bloggers)
  • Contact these bloggers and tell them they’ve won


So…here are seven things that you may or may not find interesting about me.

1.  I love learning.  If I could, I would just keep going to school for the rest of my life.  That would drive my husband crazy.  He thinks that I should finish with something and then just do that for the rest of my life.  But, I can’t help it.  School is fun.  It is challenging.  It gives me an opportunity to grow and learn.  I love it!

2.  I feel like I never really learned how to be girly.  I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a tom-boy, but I’ve never been into hair or make-up.  Consequently, I spend much of my life with my hair tied in a knot on the top of my head.

3.  I firmly believe that all mom’s should get a mental health holiday at least once a year.  Just a day or two of no kids, husbands, animals, chores, meals or anything else that needs to be taken care of.  I am convinced that a two day mini-vacation would revitalize mom’s and give them more energy to do all the other things that they are called to do everyday.

4.  When I was in high school and college, I was part of some pretty great choirs.  I got to see some really neat places and meet a lot of awesome people who have become life-long friends.  I was actually a pretty decent singer, too.  I miss it a lot.  I haven’t done any ‘real’ singing in a lot of years.  Partly because I don’t have the time and partly because I’m afraid my talents have atrophied from disuse and I’ll never get them back.

5.  We have a cat we are trying to find a new home for.  She is really sweet and loveable, but she wants more attention that we can give her.  I would really prefer to give her to someone who will love her, than to take her to a shelter.  However, if we can’t find a new home for her soon, she will have to go to the shelter. 

6.  I have been craving fruit lately.  This is a problem because I live in Wisconsin and it is the middle of winter.  I can find some fresh fruit in the stores, but they are super-expensive.  I am so jealous of my friends in Florida and Arizona who can just walk outside and pick a piece of citrus fruit off a tree.  I will be spending a lot of money on produce on my shopping trip today.

7.  I hate shaving my legs.  And not only when I’m pregnant, although that it a challenge in and of itself.  I just feel like it is such a time consuming activity and I can think of so many other things I would rather do….like sleep.  I think I’ll go take a nap.

But first, I need to tag seven more bloggers.

JJ at Adventures in “StoryVeale

Megan at Sweet Sadie Marie

Next, I need to contact everyone on my list to let them know they’ve been tagged.  Then….nap time.

Have a wonderful day!!
