Inspiring Blog Award

Awards were not something I expected from the blogging world.  To be honest, the first time I received one, I was a little confused.  Does a nomination equal an automatic win?  My insecurities didn’t diminish my excitement, however, and I immediately called my mom and did a happy dance!  There’s nothing quite like being acknowledged by your peers.

Even still, I often wonder if what I write is enough.  You all are such amazing writers, and sometimes I worry I don’t hold up!  But then something happened.  Mimi from Waiting For The Karma Truck, who I consider to be one of the most inspirational bloggers I follow, nominated me for the Inspiring Blog Award!  I can’t quite express to you how amazing it feels, not only to be considered inspirational, but to be considered inspirational by someone who inspires me!

Thank you so much Mimi!!

I would also like to thank Zen Scribbles for nominating me for The Super Sweet Blogger Award!  Since I already have it, I’m not going to do the whole thing twice – but I do want to say acknowledge the nomination!  Thank you, Zen!!

The Rules:
1.  Thank the blogger who gave you the award and link back to them. (Check!)
2.  Copy and paste the award on to your blog. (Check!)
3.  Share 7 things about yourself. (Read on!)
4.  Nominate 7 other Inspiring Bloggers and let them know on their blog. (Read on!)

7 Things About Me:

1.  I can’t keep houseplants alive to save my life.  I’d really like to be able to though.
2.  I love DIY projects.
3.  In High School I was attacked by a hawk (used for rabbit hunting), who tried to take out my eye.  He didn’t succeed, but I still have a small scar from it.
4.  My favorite movie is Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
5.  I hate odd numbers, but I consider the number 5 an honorary even number because it’s easy to count by.
6.  Even though I love to decorate with colors, I have to force myself to buy clothes in colors other than black or white.
7.  I LOVE plaid.  With pearl snaps.  Black and white plaid is the best thing that has ever existed.

  1. Congratulations on the award, Andrea! I should’ve paid attention to the awards you received, but I still think you deserve the sweet blogger mention. =]

    I hate odd number too by the way! I always try to even things up, haha.

    • Aw, don’t worry about it! That you thought of me at all is really what I appreciate!!

      Lol, I’m glad I’m not the only one!! In high school my math tutor assigned us the odd numbered problems because the answers were in the back of the book so I could check my work – but I always asked her to let me do the even numbered ones instead! OH man, I’m such a dork :P
