Blogger Award

I've been so behind on things. I feel bad about it. I hate blogging on the weekend because I'd much rather spend time with family, but then I'm playing catch-up on Monday and Tuesday every week, so I don't get to things like this until Wednesday, except, I've been preparing to go out of town for several days, so it got pushed back even further. (I haven't been ignoring your blog, Brittany, I promise! I do read all of your posts.)

I've gotten my very first award as a blogger! I'm really honored.

So what is this thing? Well let me break it down for you.

Any blogger can nominate a favorite blogger or friend who he/she feels is qualified and deserves such an award. You generally want to award someone who is friendly, kind, and has a blog you love. 

That's why I'm so honored to receive this!


So here are the rules of receiving this award.

1. Thank the giver.
2. Post 7 interesting/unique tidbits about yourself.
3. Nominate 7 deserving bloggers.
4. Include the award logo in your post about being nominated.


1.  Thank you, thank you, Brittany!! You're such a sweetheart.

2.  Seven interesting facts about me:
  • I love seafood, especially shellfish. Louisiana crawfish are my all time favorite. Oh, how I miss The South some days...
  • I have a freckle on my left thumb and you can see it in a lot of my photos of projects I'm working on. Every time I see it in a picture it makes me smile. 
  • Sometimes, when I'm taking pictures to include in a post, I'll try to angle my camera just right to get my wedding ring in pictures because it's so pretty (and sparkly!).
  • I kind of want to get my baby son into a modeling or talent agency. He's so stinkin' cute and has way too much personality for a 5-month-old. I think he'd do great in commercials and ad campaigns. But maybe I'm just biased.
  • My husband and I are really a little weird. Sometimes he'll stare at me until I look at him, and when our eyes meet, we act like schoolkids with crushes on each other and grin and blush and wave awkwardly at one another without saying a word. I have no idea how it started, but we do it multiple times a day. 
  • I have really tiny wrists. They're only about 5.5 inches in diameter. 
  • I've always wanted to be a fashion model. But when I stopped growing at 5'3" I knew it would never happen. It's okay though. I sometimes do my own photo shoots, so I'll just be a self proclaimed fashion model.

3.  Now, I know everybody is busy and like me, have very little time to do very much other than their blog routine. I totally understand that. I know this might be altering the rules a little, but I don't want my nominees to feel obligated to post about the award immediately (or at all, in some cases). Take your time and fit it into your schedule when (and if) you can if you'd like to participate. Mostly, this is my way of saying thank you and telling others about how wonderful I think these bloggers are as people. I'm not hurt if you don't really want to participate. I just want you to know that I love and appreciate you. 

So, my seven nominees are:

Jennifer at Grits and Moxie
Shaylee Ann at Mother at Heart
Kelly at Diego Girl


  1. How fun is that?! It was nice to get to learn a bit more about you too!

    1. Thanks, Anita! Thanks for following and commenting so often. It makes me feel special and important. :) You are awesome.

  2. Thanks, Janae! I'll keep an eye out for that freckle:)

    1. Haha, thank you, Kelly! I'm so glad you found me here. :)
