One Lovely Blog Award pt. 2

First off, I want to Thank Waiting For Baby Bird and While We Wait for nominating me!!  I am humbled and honored that not 1 but 3 bloggers I adore have nominated me for this award.

Here are the rules for the One Lovely Blog Award:

The other criteria for accepting a One Lovely Blog Award are:

  1. List the rules.
  2. Thank your nominator.
  3. List seven (7) facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate 15 other bloggers and let them know you did.
  5. Display the award logo and follow your nominator.


I am going to break the rules a little bit since I just did this the other day.  I know pretty much all the blogs I follow have already been nominated so I’m not going to nominate again.  Just know that I find you all lovely, inspirational and very much a part of my days and what helps keep me strong on this journey.

7 Facts:

1.  I LOVE HGTV and it is the reason, besides the Packer games that I do not want to give up cable.  I also love TLC…but with some of the shows on there, I really think they need to change the name of the channel.

2.  I have 2 Sisters…both technically my half sisters but we have never thought that way.  One of my Sisters has 5 kids and the other has 4.  My oldest nephew just started college and my youngest nephew just started kindergarten.

3.  I LOVE sweets….I usually make chocolate chip cookies when I’m craving the dough, not necessarily the cookie.  It has been said by more than one person that I make the best and softest cookies they’ve ever had.  My dream would be to make a living baking cookies.

4.  I was/am a huge New Kids On The Block fan.  When I was in 8th grade my parents separated for a bit and my Dad got rid of our dog for some dumb reason.  When they let me get a new one I got a lhasa apso and I named him Joey after Joey McIntyre.

5.  I’ve been involved in 5 direct selling businesses but Young Living and Thirty One have by far been my favorites.  I love how both have such integrity and are very focused on God.

6.  Door County, WI is one of my favorite places to go with J.  I found a groupon for a hotel in Sturgeon Bay over Halloween weekend that includes a dinner for 2, a trolley ride to all Sturgeon Bay’s creepiest places, a bonfire with ghost stories, and complimentary breakfast both days with a made to order omelet bar.  Our 2nd Anniversary is that Monday, Nov. 3rd so I’m totally excited for us to be able to get away!

7.  I so badly want to be a runner!  However, I tend to get injured very easily.  It’s so very annoying.  I’m working with a chiropractor to try and get my back strong again.  I was diagnosed with scoliosis in 9th grade, was in a really bad accident in 2005 and then was just recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia.  I think I’m at the point where I can slowly start jogging on the treadmill again.  Fingers crossed it works!  🙂

  1. We cut our cable, but hesitated for along time because we love NHL (does my love hockey make it obvious that I’m Canadian?), and the cooking channel. Turns out I miss the cooking channel the most! I loved the NKOTB as a kid but my parents would never let me go see them live, so a few years ago I dragged a girlfriend and we went! We had a blast!
