An award! :D

WARNING: I am having major issues today with formatting in this post so please ignore.. Sorry!

A few days weeks ago, the lovely Carolyn @ Life, Love and Puppy Prints gave me my very first blog award!! I am so incredibly excited! :) I had planned to do this post about 3 weeks ago but then this happened, followed by this, and then followed by THIS.  So, I've been a bit distracted. I'm finally getting around to posting about this and I hope you will all go check out Carolyn's blog if you haven't already!

There are some rules to this award.
1. Thank the person who gave you the award.
2. Share seven things about you.
3. Nominate 15 newly discovered blogs.
4. Let your nominees know about the award!
1) Caroyln - Thank you for this award! It was so sweet of you to think of me!

 2) 7 Things about me..? 

1) My absolute favorite role in life right now is being an Auntie.  My niece and nephew are the most beautiful kiddo's around and I am not biased :)

2) I am totally a Daddy's girl.  My dad never missed a sporting event of mine growing up and I'd always look for him before a game to make sure he was there.  The first game  he missed I was 18 and I cried like a big baby. 

3) Mr. has made me the happiest I've ever been. I feel so blessed to have him in my life and in 9 short months to be able to say that I am his wife.

4) I am a total type A personality (read: control freak) and I really can't help it.  I hate spontaneity and always want to know the plan! This has made me not go out on many occasions because at 9PM my girls don't know what the plan is.. I always opt out. I have to know that there is a plan.

5) My Grandma is my favorite person over the age of 6.  Honestly, she's the most amazing, kind hearted, funny, and giving person I have ever known. I feel so blessed that I have the relationship with her that I do have. 

6) I am not crafty by any means. I can create these beautiful images and crafts in my head but I can never execute them like I had visioned. This frustrates me to no end.. Go back and read number 4 to figure out why! :)

7) I am the type of person that says what I'm thinking when I am thinking it.  This blog will definitely reflect that. I at times will seem like a bitch, or even an idiot, but I am who I am. Take it or leave it. 

3) Nominate 15 newly discovered blogs!

2) Chelsea @ Hello Miss Chelsea
3) MacKenzie @ Isle 12 
5) Aimee @ Life as an Oakes 
7)  Dani @ Ok, Dan
8) Nicole @ Seaside Smitten 
11) Mrs. Hesson @ Meet the Hesson's
12) Lauren @ Blue Grass Love 
14) Smart & Sassy @ Smart & Sassy with Sprinkles
15) Sarah @ Sarah Elizabeth 

Not all of the above are newly discovered blogs for me but a mixture of newly discovered and blogs that I look forward to reading daily. I hope you can find interest in some of the blogs listed above as well! 


  1. That's so funny. I'm the same way. If there is not plan forget it. I'm not going out. I can't sit there and wonder if, when and where. I need to prepare mentally!

  2. Aw i love getting to know you!!

    i have the same problem with the crafty thing.

    thank you VERY much for the award! :)
