Beautiful Blogger Award.

My newly discovered friend Jamie`at Grumbles & Grunts has nominated me for a Beautiful Blogger Award!!! I can't remember how I managed to find Jamie's blog but I do know that I have greatly enjoyed peaking in on it consistently for quite some time now. Jamie is a beautiful mommy to an adorable little boy named Jude. She writes about her adventures and discoveries as a new mom. I really like this blog because Jamie takes the time to write about things other than being a mom. As a new mom myself, I know how difficult this can be. You are always super busy and so stinkin proud of your kid that it's hard to even think about writing something that's not totally related to baby. Thanks for nominating me for this award Jamie, I'm really glad I found your blog :-D

Now, here are the rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated me for this award [CHECK]
2. Copy the award & place it on my blog [CHECK]
3. Link to the person who nominated me for this award [CHECK]
4. Share 7 interesting things about myself [CHECK]
5. Nominate 7 other beautiful bloggers [CHECK]

Seven Interesting Things About Myself (this one's hard) :

I really do miss living in Washington state, even though I tend to talk more bad about it than good. I miss the rain, the fog, clamming, the Pacific Ocean, and the woods.

I am the oldest of five children and love being part of such a big family. I really enjoy watching my sisters and brother grow up and discover life's ups and downs.

When I was little I was so jealous of the children that could pop their knuckles or dislocate their fingers. I spent many nights trying to bend my pinkie to the left so that I could have an interesting finger trick too.

I love collecting 50s/60s vinyl.

If I could meet any authors, they would be Haruki Murakami, Steinbeck, and Sherman Alexie. I wouldn't tell them how lazy I have gotten at reading lately.

I love gardens and plants but cannot keep them alive for very long. I always try planting various things but somehow they always die. I'd like to get better at this so that we can keep a garden in our new backyard.

Before I ever met G, I would see him almost every other day, walking around Bellingham. I had always thought he seemed like a very interesting guy but never imagined meeting him (let alone marrying him three years later!)

And now I'd like to nominate seven other beautiful bloggers...Remember, you can click on the colored link to check out the blogs too (which I highly suggest doing!):

1. Last Train to Pooksville. Emily has possibly the cutest little baby girl I have ever seen. She's a super cute SAHM and loves writing about her baby's everyday achievments. Also, she makes rad baby items and is from Tacoma, WA too (same as G) which is pretty badass.

2. Back to School: Teaching in Greater New Orleans. I first met Carrie in college. She is one of the funniest, most charasmatic people I have ever met and her love for life is incredibly intoxicating. Carrie is a lover of the Beatles, burlesque, teaching, and traveling. Her students in New Orleans are so lucky to have a teacher like her.

3. The Daily Pup. This blog started out as my little sister's creation but was quickly taken over by my mom. A mother of five writing about everyday life events on their tiny farm. Oh, and did I mention that she home schools, raises her own meat, breeds wiener dogs, and brags about H more than anybody? Yeah, my mom is pretty amazing.

4. Picking Up the Pieces. Although she doesn't post very often, every time she does I get ridiculously excited. Leigh lives in Anchorage, Alaska which is pretty freakin far away from all of her old friends and family, which would be really hard for me to handle. Leigh takes really, really good photographs and has an amazing way with words.

5. Dear Baby. This blog is a real fun one to read, although sometimes the cuteness of Melissa's family makes me super jealous. I mean, seriously. Can people really be this adorable?? She is an awesome mom with a cute hubby who writes music for their little girl Everly.

6. Silence and Noise. Beautiful momma, beautiful baby, beautiful blog. I love reading about her upcoming wedding and all of the planning involved. Her little boy has the most beautiful eyes...

7. Recycled Words. Chelsea is a lover of great books, good friends, and fun times. I think she is one of the funniest bloggers on my list.
