My First Award!

Honestly, where are my manners?? I can't believe I let this go for SO long- please excuse my rudeness!! A few weeks ago, I received notification from Shannon at One Crafty Mommy (adorable blog, by the way) that I WON this:

Seriously??! I am SO excited. The more I blog, the more I feel like I am the lucky neighbor who has moved into the BEST, most supportive, funnest (yes I actually used that word) neighborhood ever. Lucky me! So, thank you very much Shannon, you are so sweet and I am sorry it took me so long to acknowledge this award.

The rules for accepting this award are:

1.Thank (and link to) the person that gave you the award
2.Pass this award on to 15 bloggers you've recently discovered & whom you think are fantastic
3.Contact said Blogs to let them know they've won
4.State 7 Things about yourself!

I wish I could give this to EVERY blog I read on a daily basis, but I guess I will follow the rules for now... and if you see your name and already got this award, just smile, pat yourself on the back and say "I am good!"

And, if you're still reading. (Ha! This is getting long!) Seven Things about Myself:
1. I don't drink coffee. (Just don't like it!)
2. My Mom and Aunt Sue are my biggest inspirations.
3. We (mom, Aunt, cousin, with the help of other key people) made almost everything for my wedding. We did all the invites, cakes, table toppers, programs, flowers, and favors ourselves. It was hard work, but also really fun. In fact, check back soon for Wedding Week, when I feature something we did each day. :o)
4. I am addicted to popcorn. It really is my favorite snack!
5. I will be traveling somewhere warm in April. Not sure where yet, but stay tuned for details. Ideas on where I should go? Click here and let me have 'em!
6. My dog makes me laugh on a daily basis. I love her!
7. My birthday is on March 15! It's coming soon!


  1. Thank you so much for this award.. It really means a lot... I can wait to see what you and your family did for your wedding. I'm ready to go some way warm myself....

  2. Awww - You are so sweet! Thanks for thinking of me.

    My family and friends help do most of my wedding as well - the flowers were all done by a family friend, the meal was cooked by my Chef Uncle and was served by teens from my moms church... all of the centerpieces were made by me and my friends and the chocolate favors were made by my hubby and myself and wrapped in tulle by me and my bridesmaids. It really made it that much more special! :)

  3. Thanks for the award! I LOVE popcorn too! I have been known to eat it for lunch or dinner on occasion (especially when the hubs is out of town. That's amazing that you did all that for your wedding! I had people do most of mine and I was still stressed to the max. Good for you. Can't wait to see it!

  4. Thanks so much for the award--I am honored! I only started drinking coffee this past year, my teenager got me into it. Enjoying some right now!

  5. Oh my gosh how sweet are YOU!?! Thanks! I am at work, lol, so I can't really post this about my blog... but will be soon. YOU ROCK!!! :)

  6. Wow! This is great, thank you so much! I'll have to post this over the weekend! My husband is going to think I'm getting to big for my britches. LOL!

  7. Wow, thanks! We're honored. So fun!
    Also, I don't like coffee (though Jordi does) and I am eating popcorn as I type this. Love that stuff. When I was a classroom teacher, I made it as part of my lunch everyday. :)
    So fun to get to know you better, and thanks again for the award.

  8. Thanks so much! So-the next time I post a pic of myself and I have red hair-no it was done in honor of you!!
