My 1st Blog Award!

I am excited to announce I received my 1st blog award! After only a few months with my new blog getting a rather slow start, Kaley from ...a tale of three poags recognized me with a Sunshine Award!! I am not only excited to receive my first award, but it could not have come from a better mama! I recently started following Kaley's blog, and I have to say, it's the every day blogs like hers that I find myself wrapped up in for hours when I should be writing my own entries!

Hosted by

so the rules are -
1. Thank the blogger who gave it to you (thanks Kaley!!!)
2. List 7 things that people may not know about you
3. pass the love to 15 deserving bloggers that you have discovered recently
4. let them know that you gave them an award

Here goes my 7 random things...

1.) My guilty pleasure is US magazine. I am a sucker for celebrity gossip *gasp* I have never subscribed since I think it's a complete waste of paper, however, I do get updates via facebook! lol

2.) I have a black thumb. I have killed EVERY plant I've ever purchased, planted or was given to me. Even a cactus.

3.) I am VERY forgetful. I forget at least one thing a day. I have been known to forget things at the grocery store... even while checking off of a list!

4.) I am a window shopper. I LOVE to spend one day, every week or so, in the mall just "browsing." I never actually buy anything during these hour long sessions! ...give me 5 minutes in Target or Whole Foods and I can do a lot of damage!

5.) I love crafts. I have many, many crafts started, some of which were started several years ago. Only a couple have been completed. Although I am capable of completing most of these things (scarf, shorties, a purse, scrapbooks), I find it impossible to pull any sort of craft box out while tending to two children. My 3 year old would have a field day with my scrap booking materials!

6.) I have a new (growing) passion for food. My husband is a creative cook with an eclectic pallet and I love learning from him.

7.) I am a doula in training! I completed my courses but can't take clients until my daughter is a bit older, but I can't wait to get in the delivery room! Birth, natural or not, is very close to my heart. I want to assist people in having their ideal birth!

The 15 blogs I pass this award to are:

1. A hui hou kakou
2. Teefers Treats (Barefoot in the Kitchen)
3. Cloth Chronicles
4. Connected Mom
5. Funky Fluff Lovin (look for her wipes on sale soon!!)
6. Life: Full of unexpected Happiness
7. Organic Deals and Coupons
8. Mandi's Menagerie
9. 52 weeks, making baby and toddler food
10. Cottontail Babies
