First Blogging Award

October 24, 2012

Wow! I am honored to thank my blogging buddy Monica at impressions of a princess for nominating me for my first blogging award.  She’s so sweet, and such a great supporter of my blog.


There are a couple rules I have to follow in accepting this award.


1) Thank the person who nominated me.

Thank you Monica for choosing me out of the thousands of other bloggers out there. I really appreciate all your support. I  received the notification that I was nominated on my about page. Thank you again Monica so much!


2) Post award image to my page – Done


3) Tell 7 facts about myself

1)  I am a Christian. I’ve been blessed with a great family and an awesome church.

2)  I recently discovered that I like coffee. I’m usually a tea drinker, Chai is my favorite. But I tried Starbucks skinny French Vanilla coffee recently and loved it.

3)  I’m a HUGE Backstreet Boys fan. 🙂 I’m in my mid 30’s now, I started listening to them in college, and I’ve been a huge fan ever since. 🙂

4) Psychology was my major in college.

5) It’s a good thing that my husband works with computers for a living because I have a tendency to mess them up. 😉

6) My hair is naturally curly. This can be both a blessing and a curse, depending on what it feels like doing that day. I’ve recently discovered Paul Mitchell’s Truth About Curls through a free sample  and I love it. Problem is it’s  $70 for the set, that’s a little out of my budget. My husband is getting a kick out of teasing me for giving him a hard time when he spent $3 on shampoo without a coupon, but now I’m asking for the Paul Mitchell set for Christmas. 😉

7) Cooking and Baking are two of my favorite hobbies. I just need to find healthy recipes. 🙂


4)  Nominate 15 other bloggers and let them know about the nomination.

There are so many bloggers that I love, but I’ll keep my list to 15

      Way to go on eating healthy snacks. I need to focus more on that. I was doing really well to this week and all I want to do is nibble. I just need to remind myself of why I’m doing this.

      Thanks for your support. You have a great blog, it’s one of my favorites!

    Thank you so much, Susan, for the honor. There is absolutely nothing as rewarding as being honored by those who know exactly how hard a blogger works to put out the best posts we can.

    The more I cook and bake, the more I’m coming to enjoy them!
    Thanks for the nomination!

    Congratulations! Hihi. My hair is a bit wavy though not so curly. I am getting interested with that product you mentioned though it is a bit expensive! Hmm, I’m forever a tea person though once in a while I try coffee products, too.

    Thanks for including my site! I wish my hubby knew something about computers!

    • October 24, 2012 10:16 pm

      Your welcome! My hubby works with computers all day and he has to hear me whine about how sloowwwww my computer is. 😉 Hopefully I’ll get a new one for Christmas.

    Congrats on your award Susan and thank you so much for nominating me! You are so sweet and it’s nice to get to know you a bit better. I also majored in Psychology and I love chai too. Although if it wasn’t for coffee in the morning, I would probably be quite grouchy! 🙂

      Your welcome! I thought I’d never like coffee, but I might change my mind. It’s too bad that Starbucks is a bit out of my family’s budget most of the time. 🙂 We had a Buy One Get One Free coupon when I tried it.

      • October 25, 2012 3:29 am

        It’s true – it’s super expensive. You can buy the grounds though to make it a bit more affordable. But, in comparison to the general cost of grounds, it’s still expensive. Starbucks is definitely a once-in-a-while treat! 🙂

      • October 25, 2012 5:59 am

        Yeah, Target sometimes offers Gift Card deals on the bagged coffee. There’s also coupons for it sometimes as well.

  10. October 25, 2012 11:19 am

    Thanks for the award 🙂 Cooking and baking are my favorite things to do also!

    • October 25, 2012 11:27 am

      Your so welcome! I live in Virginia and it’s awesome to have other bloggers close by! You have great recipes!

  11. October 25, 2012 2:48 pm

    Wahoo!!! I love award! Congrats hunny! and thank you so much for the nomination!!!

  12. October 25, 2012 4:02 pm

    SO FUN! Thanks for nominating me lady! I’ll need to schedule my response post in the next week or two. I’ll let you know when I post it 🙂 Oh, and coffee is seriously the best ever. Have you tried Starbucks’ pumpkin spice latte? Where in VA do you live? Hubs and I live in NY now but we used to live in Northern VA in Tysons Corner.

    Thanks for nominating me! I’ll get the post ready and put it up soon 🙂
