Woot Woot for My One Lovely Blog Award

Woot Woot for My One Lovely Blog Award

Woohoo!!!! 3 months in and I’ve been nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award! I’m so excited I can hardly stand it! I sit here and click away for hours, push the “post” button and pray that I hear more than silence back on the other end. I sit and hope that the words I share make a difference. That they make someone smile, laugh, solve a problem, or dare I say, change a perspective. Or really to be honest, that anyone is reading it at all {lol!} I am so ridiculously happy that Leah over at And 1 More Makes 3 nominated me. Halfway across the world, she blogs about parenting, weight loss and exercise, mental health issues, and totally honest {and often hilarious} stories of her three kiddos. Since she is from England, just reading her posts {and dare I say being friends} makes me feel ever so posh and sophisticated {and a bit like Bridget Jones…}. Hop across the pond to her blog, give her a Like on Facebook, Follow her on Twitter…I guarantee you will love all that she shares. Here is what she shared about me for her nomination:

 Smiles and Sundays . Leanne from Smiles and Sundays writes about parenting,  baking, DIY, crafts and life as a working mum. I love her blog, it is beautiful to look at with its awesome photos of crafts that she has made, and her writing is amazing. And it just so happens that she is a super awesome person too.

See, I told you-totally awesome, posh, mum blogger friend. 🙂

Here are 5 Blogs I love and nominate for this award:

1.Learning the Mom Life– Samantha over at Learning the Mom Life writes about the journey and experiences of being a mom. She adds tips and advice on balancing all the aspects of being a mom. She also adds kid crafts, home decor, and humor that’s why I love her blog, it offers a little bit of everything.

2.Mommy Perfect– Her blog has a great retro vibe with excellent graphic images. Add to it, that it is packed with helpful information on everything from delicious recipes to money-saving tips and it is a totally winner. Stop in a check it out.

3.Olga’s Craft Den– Crafts, crafts, crafts. Beautiful, creative, and totally doable. Who could ask for more? Olga has done a great job with her blog and I have been inspired to give about 10 different projects a whirl.

4.Now I’m Mommy– Felicia over at Now I’m Mommy share humorous stories, great DIY scrubs and beauty products, and great ways to save some serious $$$. Hop on over and check it out.

5.Alabama Homeschool Mom– Candace works super hard to put out some amazing content on her homeschooling blog, but it’s not just for homeschoolers. She blogs great parenting tips, recipes, motivation, with a beautiful faith focus. She really does a great job. Check her out, who knows, you may just give homeschooling another thought too. 😉

If I have nominated you and you want to join in then here are the rules…

# You must thank the person who nominated you and link their blog in the post.
# You must include the rules and add the blog award badge as an image.
# You add 7 facts about yourself
# Then nominate at least 5 people and let them know by commenting on their blog!

So,on to the 7 facts: Hmmm….not gonna lie, kinda tough…

  1. I once didn’t eat any pig products for 3 months because of a particularly frightening episode of Criminal Minds.
  2. I keep having the same dream that I’m “car surfing” on the top of an 80’s A-Team van. I wonder what that means?
  3. All spiders should die. I can say this officially because they are out to get me. Seriously. How many spiders have jumped on your face while showering? Until your answer is 3, don’t judge. ALL spiders should die.
  4. I have serious worries about the future of education, America, and really, the world.
  5. Those worries keep me up at night.
  6. I have more blessings in my life than I deserve.
  7. Favorite trilogy of all time? Back to the Future. No doubt. Hands down.

So there you have it. I’m off to have a glass of wine and celebrate my award. {mic drop}

    Good job on all the hard work. After this election education and the whole county are in trouble. We are truly blessed and no pork except bacon btw. Don’t lie to your people. 100% no pork for a few weeks but bacon snuck back in before the rest…
