Wow, An Award for Me?

I'm flattered! NorcalMom at Lemons to Lemonade gave me this lovely award! I've gone through my life being one of those people who "never wins anything" but since I've started blogging - it's been a year now -  I've won a few giveaways and now this fancy schmancy award. I'm feeling pretty cool now, I've got to say it made my day. 

Here are the rules:
1.  Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award
2.  Share 7 things about yourself
3.  Award 5 recently discovered great bloggers
4.  Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award!

So here are 7 fascinating facts about me:

1. My parents divorced when I was 2, and have not been in contact with my real dad since I was maybe 5 - even though he attempted to reach out to me a few times about 5 years ago.

2. I have become afraid of heights in my older age. Few things scare me but for whatever reason if I am close to a railing several stories up or hiking on a very steep mountain, my knees start to buckle!

3. Earthquakes do not really bother me. I have lived in CA all my life and when the rattling starts, I just wait for it to end. I lived through the 7.1 quake of '89 while I was living in Santa Cruz and that should have done me in...but it didn't.

4. I used to figure skate competitively as a youngster.

5. I still not-so-secretly want one more child. But "Chip" is opposed. C'est la vie.

5 Fabulous Blogs I Have Recently Started Following:

Check these blogs out! Hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Have a wonderful and hopefully LONG weekend. I am going to get started on mine!!

Do you have any great plans this weekend? I have a playdate for my son on Monday, and plan to spend the rest of the weekend with family. Hopefully we will buy my 2 year old a bedroom set and get started on his "big boy" room! And of course, run, run run!

Cheers to you all!


  1. Congratulations and Thanks so much! This was unexpected and it is my first award so I'm psyched! Sorry I didn't get here sooner but your comment was spammed for some reason!

  2. Oh wow, I am so honored, thank you so much for the shout-out! I love your blog!
