Gorgeous Blogger Award!

Kelli at A Mountain Mama has given me a blogging award. I so appreciate being included and the sweet things she said about me. And being called a gorgeous blogger? So awesome.

I've received two awards in the past but never wrote about them because I couldn't figure out how to post the award image on my blog. I decided if I couldn't even figure that out, then maybe I didn't deserve the award! I'm going to try and find these awards again, though because I so appreciate that anyone thought of me.

I'm supposed to write about six things other don't know about me, and nominate five other bloggers. So I will share six things my readers may not know about me:
  1. I got my navel pierced when I was twenty years old and kept it until I was thirty one and way too pregnant. I was afraid the hole would stretch if I left it in.
  2. I love dried pineapple. I can't get enough of it. I would love to learn how to dry it myself because it's expensive and difficult to find.
  3. I have eaten popcorn almost every day since I've been a stay at home mama. I've always been a fan, but now it's a staple.
  4. I have collected cows since I was in 8th grade. I have stuffed animals, rugs, figurines, blankets, towels, mugs, etc. Fortunately, the collecting has tapered off in recent years, but for a while it was a little crazy. And no, I'm not sharing the reason for the obsession.
  5. I am introverted. I enjoy socializing and if I push myself I can even be outgoing, but I find it exhausted. I really need some alone time to recharge. I love public speaking though, and hope someday to be able to incorporate it into my career again.
  6. I'm terrified of heights. Even while watching movies, I have physical reactions to perceived height. That said, I enjoy roller-coasters and mountains and insisted on climbing the lighthouse in St. Augustine. You won't catch me ever bungee-jumping though.
Other gorgeous bloggers:
  1. Stevie @ TwoBoyzTwoDogzTwoCrazyParents - I've known Stevie for five years now, and I admire the way she lives her life with such passion. She's an amazing photographer and I appreciate the glimpses she shares on her blog.
  2. Robin @ Do You Not Know What Causes That? - I met Robin originally because she teaches childbirth classes in Louisville. When I searched for classes, I just happened to come across classes taught by the author of several pregnancy books that I'd been reading. I am so thankful that I found her. I enjoy reading about her life with eight kids and often find inspiration for my own life.
  3. April @ Capture the Memories - I love how April shares her life and details that will be memories for her family.
  4. Monica @Without Filters - Monica's philosophy is about sharing with the blinders off. I'm inspired by how honest and real she is.
  5. Amy @ The Salt and Pepper Diva - Amy is so adventurous in her cooking, and she always has wonderful photos. And she is just so sweet!
