I Received the Stylish Blogger Award

UK Stylish Blogger AwardPeople blog for a variety reasons, some because they need an emotional outlet, some because they’re looking for a side hustle and some because it’s a way to make friends who share a common interest.  I blog because my husband kept yelling “I’m not your girlfriend, quit sharing your shopping experiences with me!”  For some reason, he just doesn’t seem to understand the thrill I get from finding the right pair of shoes or stumbling across the perfect bag.  On sale. So I share my life with you and it’s good to know that someone enjoys my ramblings…

1. Thank and link back to the person/persons who awarded you this award.

Thank you to my friend, fellow librarian and fitness shero, Sarah from Uberlibrariana.  I can’t remember the circumstances under which we met but I do know that I’ve been inspired daily by your fitness tips and constantly amused by The Rowan.  Thank you for this award, I’m honored.

2. Share 7 things about yourself

  • When I married my husband I couldn’t boil water, now I love to cook
  • I’m terribly shy and have to prepare myself for social events, however, teaching/speaking in front of a group doesn’t bother me
  • When I was younger I wanted to be a globe trotting reporter
  • Birds and cats scare the living daylights out of me, for weeks I refused to use my garage because it was inhabited by a family of cats and then a flock of birds took over
  • Sometimes I’ll text my kids the following message: “Don’t tell the others, but you’re my favorite.”
  • Car dancing is my favorite hobby
  • I love monkeys and hope someday to be one of those crazy ladies who dresses my pet monkey in a dress and walks her around the park (Hmmm, maybe I shouldn’t have shared that much crazy)

3. Then award 5-15 blogs that you follow.

In alphabetical order (because I’m a wild and crazy girl), I present the Stylish Blogger Award to:

  • The Chicest Geek
  • Don’t Get Excited… It’s Just Me
  • Faith Like Mustard
  • Lipgloss & Binky: The Rants and Raves of a Fab Mom
  • The Mahogany Way
  • Pacifiers Pumps The World
  • Simple Single Mom

4. Contact the bloggers and let them know of their reward!

Taking care of it now.  I love introducing people to new bloggers.  I hope you find them as interesting as I do.  Please stop by and show them some comment love.  Thank you.
