a little award

Heather over at Notes from the Nelsens gave me a bloggy award! Heather and I went to high school together & she has a great blog filled with recipes and house renovations! She and her hubby Matt have transformed their new house and it looks AWESOME! Go check her out! 

On to the award...here are the rules for accepting:
The Rules of accepting the Versatile Blogger Award are:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post.
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Pass this award along to up to 15 recently discovered blogs
 
I like sharing random facts about myself...is that bad? Here are my 7 things:
 
  1. When I am cooking alone in the kitchen I like to pretend that I am a Food Network star (like Giada) and that I have my own tv show. It's fun to daydream!
  2. Speaking of daydreaming...I don't like to live in the past, but I have a problem of thinking too far ahead and not enjoying the moment I am in. I am always thinking about what my life will look like in 5 years, 10 years, next year. 
  3. During labor, I pinched a nerve in my right leg. I didn't know it while I was pushing (thank you, epidural), but my leg was being pushed too far back. The day after my c-section when the doctor was trying to get me out of bed I told her I could not move my right leg at all. I left the hospital with a walker and a knee-stabilizer & could not walk at all by myself for 2 weeks. It took 6 weeks to completely heal. I would love to try a VBAC next time but I am terrified that this same thing would happen again.
  4. I miss the kids I student taught in Mississippi. I felt like that actually needed me and it was so hard for me to leave them. It still makes me sad 4 years later to think about what their lives are probably like now. 
  5. I can't imagine my life without dogs. Mine are still my babies. 
  6. I went through a brunette phase when I was 19. I kind of want to do it again. 
  7. I love looking at houses online. Ben and I do it all the time even though we aren't moving. I think it would be really fun to be a real estate agent. 
  Here are the people I am giving this award to!
I've always loved Jen's blog. She is a Kentucky girl with the cutest little girl who happens to share G's birthday!
I just found Melissa's blog this summer. She is a runner with a cute little girl & a great sense of humor!
I started reading Guffey Love when G was a teensy baby. Natalie is a crafty mama & is hilarious!
I just found Mallorie's blog a few weeks ago! She is a newlywed with a baby girl on the way! 

Okay, now it's time for you to check out some new blogs! :)
