The Sisterhood of the World Award

My lovely friend Melinda from Purple Slob in Recovery nominated me for this award, and it’s a fun new one for me! Here’s her nomination post:

Thank you, my friend! You are so sweet to think of me!



Thank the giver and link their blog to your post (see above)
Answer the 10 questions given to you (see below)
Pass the award on to 7 other bloggers of their choice and let them know that they have been nominated (see very bottom)
Include the logo of the award in a post or on your blog (look to the right)

Let’s have some fun, shall we?

1. On the bad days, how do you cheer yourself up?

I’m such a girl. There’s nothing that makes me feel better than a pedicure complete with flashy red polish!

2. Which is your favorite food?

If it’s gluten-free, it’s for me! (Except for kale. Kale. BLECH.)

3. How do you let go?

Sing the song, of course! Either that or just tell myself to get over it. That works, too!

The Versatile Blogger Award!

Well, we’ve made it to another Friday, and I’m celebrating! So while I’m celebrating Friday, I figured I should celebrate this, too: I’ve been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award!


How cool is that?! The lovely Stephany from Freshly Squeezed Lemonaid has nominated me for this award, and I’m delighted to accept! Thanks, Stephany! (You’ve got to go check out her fabulous blog, too! CLICK HERE!)

The Rules

1. Thank the blogger that nominated you and link back to their site (Oh, look at me, I already did that above! Got a little ahead of myself, ha!)
2. Tell seven random facts about yourself.
3. Pay it forward to thirteen versatile bloggers.

Seven Random Facts about Me

1. I actually double-majored in Journalism and Public Relations in college, and minored in Biblical Studies. I’m “loosely” using all of those degrees, ha!
2. I worked my way through college as a nanny for triplet boys plus their baby brother.
3. I have one sister. I don’t even think she reads this blog, ha! (I’m sure to find out NOW, though!)
4. I am OCD. (That may not be a random fact to most of you, but just in case any of you thought it was a possibility, let me just confirm it!)
5. I unconsciously harmonize with various household appliances. (Vacuum, microwave, dishwasher…it’s true.)
6. I have eight email addresses. (See #4)
7. I’m rarely sad, but when I am, my number-one mood picker-upper is to paint my toenails RED. (Try it! It really works!)

And now, let’s pay it forward! I nominate these thirteen versatile bloggers! Please, click on each one to visit their blogs! Each of these ladies is doing a fantastic job in the blogosphere, and I applaud each one of them! You go, girls!!!
