My first blog award!

27 Nov

When I logged on Wednesday after landing in Missouri , I was stoked to find a comment from Tomurai, telling me he’d nominated me for a blog award!  I’m beyond flattered, and now I have to fulfill a few rules and requirements:

Share 7 things that you don’t already know about me.
Name 7 other blogs to receive this award.

Leave a comment on each of the blogs I nominated.

Thank the person who gave you the award.

So here are 7 things you might not know about me, unless you’ve read this blog for a while!

1. I’m a Star Wars freak.  I love the movies, I love the extended universe, I have a collection of Star Wars pez dispensers and a few collectibles.
2. I want to move out of Pennsylvania with a burning passion.
3. When I was a kid I used to create my own “big” words.  Example: “There were dinosaurs in the  prehysterical age.”
4. Even thought I was an English major, I can’t stand certain “classics” like Great Expectations and Tom Sawyer.  I know, I know.  Don’t hate me.
5. While most people loved to go out and party during college, I just wasn’t that type.  I spent a lot of weekends reading and writing.  NERD ALERT.
6. I won’t spend more than 15 dollars on a pair of jeans.  Seriously.
7. I am obsessed with blogging, which I’m sure everyone who reads this knows by now…

    Now for the seven blogs I nominate:

    1. Ramblings by Nicole – I love this blog!  Nicole writes amazing posts and also finds great giveaways.  Her encouragement when I was re-designing my blog really helped me!
    2. Jesus Needs New PR – This the blog of author Matthew Paul Turner, and every day he posts some of the most hilarious photos, thoughts and videos.  This is definitely one of my favorite reads.
    3. The Budget Savvy Bride – Even though I’ve been married for a bit now, I still read this blog frequently.  The budget savvy bride finds great deals and offers wonderful ideas for planning a wedding.
    4. Bring the Rain – I have been following Angie’s story for a little over a year.  Her posts are always so open, honest and insightful.  Even through the storm, she constantly testifies God’s faithfulness.
    5. Under Grace and Over Coffee – This blog is a recent discovery, but I’ve been reading it faithfully since I found it.  You’ll find a daily dose of encouragement, humor and a bit of “caffeinated randomness” here.
    6. Baby Got Books – This is probably my favorite blog out there about books and “bookish things.”  In addition to writing great reviews, they provide book news and other interesting tidbits.
    7. Kevin & Amanda – Amanda has an eye for photography, design and scrapbooking.  Her free fonts are amazing, and she posts a lot of a great tips as well!

    Well there you go!  I’ve got to get back to spending some time with family here in Kansas City!  Hope everyone has a wonderful Black Friday, whether you’re shopping or taking time to relax!
