And the winner is...
I thought it might be fun to lighten the mood a bit, and help spread the love for some of my blog-pals out there! Recently, Hannah Sullivan gave me "The Stylish Blogger Award." Given how much I despise January, and my husband's recent lay-off, this sweet, sweet comment/Award came at the perfect time. :)
I think I found Hannah through sisters/friends Anna Lynn Riley and Olivia Carter, but you know, sometimes, it's hard to keep track.
The "rules" ask you to share 7 things about yourself and then share the award with 15 other newly discovered blogs (therefore, also giving THEM the award).
Here are my lists of fun facts and blogs!
1.) I hate January. I am, desperately trying to make friends with it, but this good ole' first month just isn't having any of it.
2.) I am trying to "get into" couponing. It has been a little more difficult to navigate than you'd think, but I'm hoping it pays off in the end! (Literally!)
3.) Sometimes, I watch a re-run of Friends, only to find I have SEVERAL of the lines memorized
4.) I have an etsy shop, but haven't taken the time to do much with it. I'm looking forward to digging my heels in and starting a new-sort-of business venture!
5.) For my birthday last year, my husband offered to build me a rabbit hutch (and buy me a rabbit). After careful consideration, we decided on a parakeet instead (scrappy dogs and cowardly rabbits don't usually get along). We ended up with a nice/somewhat expensive bird cage...and still no bird. We're planning on getting one in the spring...although spring of what year, I'm not sure (haha).
6.) Every morning, I watch a re-run of 30 Rock or Friends while I'm getting ready for the day.
7.) Keeping my car cleaned-out for more than a week at a time is considered a huge success for me (its been about 8 days-hooray!)
I have been an avid blog-reader for quite some time and usually stick to my old favorites, so coming up with 15 "newly discovered" blogs was hard to do. My goal was 10...and I only posted 9. I hope the "Blog Award Gods" don't mind that I broke the rules (Oh, Yours Truly, forever the rule breaker!)
Call me a stickler, but I wanted to post blogs I really enjoy. I didn't want to just post whatever was in my history for the sake of posting, you know? I hope that doesn't make me sound like an award-nazi.
Anyway, here are the ones that stood out!
Roxanne and Lorraine (love these two blogging besties)!
Our city lights (fun/artsy/creative)
The Allie Bee ( A friend from college)!
Defying Gravity (Also a friend from college)!
Joy Just Because
Happy Loves Rosie (LOVE HER STYLE)
Intangible Goodness (loving her "what I wore" posts and etsy shop!)
Crazy Mrs. M (who-recently-butchered-two-pigs! Holy Cow....er Holy Pig!)
I hope you found some good, new reads!
Love and a lot of copying and pasting,
