I just love getting blogging awards. It means I can write on my business card… “Award Winning Blogger.” That makes my mother proud. I especially love getting awards that have really pretty icons because they put the CHIC in Homemaker Chic! Is it bad that I only like to accept the ones with cute icons? Judge all you want but a girl’s gotta keep things looking cute up in here! :)
So the Very Inspiring Blogger Award was bestowed upon me by the adorable blog Run, Runner Girl, Run! She has a great writing style and if you read her blog you might learn a thing or two about living a healthy lifestyle. Be sure to check her out!
So part of being awarded means I have to do two things…
Thing #1) List 7 things about yourself.
1- My husband Adam proposed to me after only knowing me for 3 months and we were married 3 months later. :) I ask him all the time what I did to get him to marry me so quickly but his answer is different every time. It varies between “having a really nice booty” to “being really sweet” to “cooking amazing food.” I’ll take it all. I have no idea how I knew he was the one either really, I think we both just got amazingly blessed!
2- I was homeschooled from 3rd grade through graduation. I absolutely loved it. No I’m not anti-social, yes I went to prom, no I’m not a total weirdo, and yes- resoundingly yes – I will homeschool my own children if and when God ever sees fit to give me any.
3- I have a not so slight obsession with cheese, particularly of the goat variety. Its like xanax for me. When I’m feeling down, a little bit of goat cheese will make everything better.
4- I’m drinking a Dos Equis and listening to the sound of onions sizzling on the stove as I type.
5- I’m working on my degree in counseling. My dream is to become a Homemaking Coach. I would love to direct ladies on how to become better women, homemakers, mothers and wives.
6- I talk to my mother for at least an hour every day.
7- Adam and I are in the process of getting certified to adopt. Hopefully we will be able to finally start our family in the next year!
Thing #2) Nominate 15 other bloggers. Hmm, I don’t think I have time for that. How about 5?
Thanks for reading folks! You’re what makes writing this blog so meaningful and rewarding for me.
