Maggie of Magpie Making Do recently nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award! (thanks girl!) Do you follow Maggie? Her blog is honest and smart and one of my favorite reads. She posts about everything from her knitting projects & DIY wire bracelets to recipes & manicure updates. I like them because her post topics seem to just add to her daily life instead of making life decisions just to please her blog, ya know what I mean? She’s a genuine bloggger and I really love that. If you like that too, I highly suggest giving her a read!
This nomination technically came at the end of June but because of pre-scheduled vacation/grad school posts I haven’t really been able to sit down and create this post. Doesn’t seem like I’m holding up to the nomination, huh? These kinds of posts are great “getting to know you” posts and I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve done one of these. I’m super excited to be up and moving again. So here are the rules:
- Thank and link the amazing person(s) who nominated you.
- List the rules and display the award.
- Share seven facts about yourself.
- Nominate 15 other amazing blogs and comment on their posts to let them know they have been nominated.
- Optional: Proudly display the award logo on your blog and follow the blogger who nominated you.
1- So far I’ve been to 23 states out of my 50 state goal.
2- I would rather be warm than cold. It’s a lot easier for me to cool down than it is for me to warm up.
3- When I was young I took piano lessons for a few years and I also played the violin in school (grade 3- my 1st year of college). I can’t really play either anymore and letting skills go is my biggest regret to date.
4- I’m pretty horrible at making plans. I LOVE seeing my friends and family, but after work and general life tasks, I easily fall into a trap that I lovingly call my couch.
5- Dean and I have a little secret up our sleeves. I’ll introduce it to you next month- but you can know now that it’s a doozy!
Magpie Making Do- It’s probably against the rules to officially nominate the person who nominated you… but I’m also not listing out a full 15 bloggers either. I’ve decided to make up my own rules and just go with it #BA
Welcome to My Life- This is Bahar’s blog. She was in a bad car accident last February, and now she keeps friends and family updated on her recovery through posts. She writes once a week and it’s always an eye opening read. I really appreciate that she’s more than willing to start conversations and to answer your questions about her every day life.
Writes Like a Girl- My blogging sister from another mister (or something like that). I’ve written about my love affair with Nicole’s blog quite a few times. If you haven’t clicked over there yet, I must not appear too trustworthy in the blog department.
Happy or Else- Christina is a new mom writing about a variety of topics from out in Southern Cali (and I’m a little more than jealous of her current residence). Her posts always have an interesting spin to things most of us are probably thinking about. Plus her acupuncture/healthy living posts are some of my favorites.
Kristina does the Internets- A fun loving life and style blog that we can all actually use in real life! Kristina’s outfits are always pulled together and affordable and her party planning skills are amazing for those of us with an average 20-something budget.
Do you keep up with any of these leading ladies? What blogs have you been reading lately?
