you picked me?

My good friend in and out of blog world Mrs. Hopeful has honored me with THREE awards! Thank you friend! If you read my blog and have not checked out Happy Hopefuls, you must! Honestly, you might not come back to see me again because she has a lot better story to share :)

I am going to start by accepting 2 of the 3 awards today and I will accept the third on a seperate post. The reason is for the sake of time and quiet honestly content...

For each award, I have to list 7 things about myself and nominate 15 bloggers.... umm thats a lot of math, but pay attention those that are nominated below... it is: 21 facts and 45 bloggers. so for the sake of time... I will do 14 and 30.

14 things you might not know about me:

1- I have only ever lived in the state of Ohio
2- I went to college with the goal of becoming the next Diane Sawyer or Katie Couric.
3- I am the oldest of 4- two sisters and one brother -ages 27-12
4- My grandma introduced me to my husband
5- I still wonder why I gave up my News Anchor dream
6- I L.O.V.E summer, sunshine,and all things summer related
7- my birthday is in the summer
8- I hate to wear socks
9- I suffer from serious entree envy every time I go out to eat
10-ice cream is my favorite food
11- I have a love hate relationship with excercise
12- my worst fear about getting older is that my butt will grow into my thigh and become one (hence leading to the need for #11)
13- I also suffer from craft and creativity envy- this is why a lot of the people below are getting awards
14- I am not good at math at all... for real its embarrasing

I nominate the following bloggers with these two awards:

Lullabies and School Supplies
The Waltons
Not Yanas Blog 
Senseless sophistication
33 shades of green (and not just because my favorite color is green)
lauren makes
34 isn't that old (to encourage her to get back on the blog wagon)
My Heart Shaped Life

ok, I realize that I have not nominated the right # of blogs, however, I do not follow that many, so I had to pick the ones that I like to read the most... I can add more later.

Thanks again Mrs. Hopeful! And to all the award winners above, keep up the blogging!

Hi Mattie - Congrats on your awards and thanks so much for mentioning my blog - I really appreciate it! I am totally with you on #10, 11, and 14. Oh gosh, ice cream is good - I've been know to eat it for dinner in the Summer! Which is sort of a problem considering #10. I'm really looking forward to checking out the other blogs you listed, especially 34 Isn't That Old. I just turned 34 last week and it's sounding pretty old to me!
