My First Bloggy Award!

I am so incredibly ecstatic to receive my first award as a blogger.  Nic from Confessions of a Domestically Challenged Housewife has given me the "Beautiful Blogger Award."  I could not thank her enough!  I am so incredibly touched to know that other's are enjoying my writing as much as I enjoy doing it.  We all usually start blogging for ourselves, or to share a common message and it is so amazing when you know that your message is at least reaching a few!  So thank you again!

Once you are given this award you then must pick 15 of your favorite bloggers and share their blogs with your readers.  This was a hard one.  In the past few months I have found so many wonderful blogs.  So, without further ado, here they are:


So. here are the rules to receiving the Beautiful Blogger award:

1. Thank the person(s) that nominated you; link to the person that gave you the award!

2. Pass this award on to 15 bloggers you’ve discovered and think are fantastic.

3. Contact said Blogs; let them know they've won!

4. State 7 things about yourself

So last but not least, here's 7 things about me:

1) Before going to college I finished my last days of high school thinking that it was my last day ever stepping foot in a class room.  I was going to be a dancer.  I grew up doing lyrical, jazz, hip hop, and ballet.  I got accepted into programs and was praying that my parents would let me go...welll I wasn't allowed to major in dance, I had to get a "real" education.  So this "real" education was in criminal justice and psychology.  I still danced through college in NYC but now it is really just a hobby which does sadden me at times.  I then went to law, not quite the last day of class that I pictured.
2) I love animals.  I made a contract with my mother when I was little that when I was older I would get a pig, cat, dog, bird, hamster, and a horse.  Well, I kind of have broken this contract.  I have so far had a dog, cat, bird, and hamster.  The other two...well, not so much.  I would love a horse one day though!
3) I want four children.  I used to want three until my husband suggested four.  I think big families are great.  I have four siblings and I love having a big family.  I believe that in the end, families are what matter the most, so...why not?
4) I am beyond addicted to coffee.  I never understood why people drank coffee so much until I had my first real cup in college.  I say real because, I was tired, I needed to go to an 8 am class and did the trick.  It was amazing and I have been hooked ever since.  I still don't get decaf though.
5) I am an obsessive shopper.  I love looking at clothing stores online, in store, anywhere I can.  If I had more money I'd probably use it!  Thank God I am also responsible and look at everything I have in my cart before I check out and decide that none of it is practical...because for sure, I would bankrupt our family.  I save my shopping for a few times a year when we can splurge a little, and for this my husband is grateful.
6)  I believe you always have to have something to look forward to.  It makes those rough days so much easier.  I haven't been on vacation in WAY too long but for now I keep little things to look forward to like seeing friends or a wedding invite!
7)  I am sort of a recluse.  I love seeing friends,  bringing Nick out to classes, traveling and such but the majority of the time I am perfectly fine sitting at home with my husband and son and just relaxing.  This is what matters most to me and I find it amazing!  I was never the typical party girl in college (although I did have my share of fun).  I wouldn't call it antisocial, maybe just more reserved.
I may not be the most interesting person but...hey, it's me =)


  1. Congratulations on your first award! So exciting! I've always wondered how those awards get distributed. I found your blog on SITS and I will be back!

  2. Congratulations on your award!

    And thank you so much for passing it on to me!

  3. P.S. In response to your #7...I am the same way! Wasn't a party girl in college, but I was very social and had tons of fun. I love staying in and watching movies with friends or my fiance. I guess you can say I'm "low maintenance." :)

  4. Congrats on your first blog award; they are all very exciting and I'm sure you'll receive many more! I went over to your de clutter blog to follow, but it looked like this blog is more active to follow. I'm your newest follower from Follow Friday. I enjoyed reading all of your 7 things about you! Thanks for passing on the award to me! I'll be checking in on your posts! Ciao, Roz (aka bella)

  5. Thank you SO much for this award! I am like 3 weeks behind on an awards post between my switch to WP and being on vacation this week, but I plan on getting one up later this week when I get home!!

  6. Thank you so much! I'll be posting about it tomorrow! You'll be interested to hear one of my 7 things based on what I read on your 7 things. :)

  7. Thanks everyone! And oh yes, my family, style etc blog! That was a lonng time ago and I totally forgot about it! I will have to find a way to delete it as most of the stuff on it would apply to this blog as well.

    And yes, the word "low maintenance" fits me perfectly! Except when it comes to clothes, hehe.

  8. Congrats on your award and thank you for sharing it with me!

    (And I'm a coffee junkie too! ;-) )
