Happy Friday! Things have been so crazy! And yet again, I’m behind in my posting. I have a long weekend so I’m hoping to catch up. We shall see…

I’m also hoping to figure out this whole car situation. Wish me luck!

Have a great weekend!

inspiring blogger award

15 Jan

I cannot believe how much of a slacker I have been. I feel terrible.

I was awarded the Very Inspiring Blogger Award by Jessie Homemaker (yay!) at the beginning of December. I just have not gotten a chance to post about it.

I am so thankful about being given this award. I was very surprised and happy to know that my blog is really liked by some people!

very-inspirational-blogger11

Here are the things that I have to do along with this award:

  • Display the award logo on your blog
  • Link back to the person who nominated you
  • Post 7 things about yourself not listed on your About Me page.
  • Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link to them
  • Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award’s requirements

Here are 7 things about me that you can’t find on my about me page {even though I mention quite a few things on my about me page which makes this a little difficult}:

  1. I have a crazy sweet tooth. I love candy, cookies, cupcakes, whoopie pies…pretty much anything sweet.
  2. I love all the animated Disney movies, especially the classics. Little Mermaid is my favorite!
  3. I’m getting closer to actually opening an Etsy shop. I’ve come up with a name and everything! I’ll post about it when it becomes more real.
  4. I love music that I can dance to. When I hear music with a good beat, I have a hard time staying still.
  5. I’ve been thinking more about photography and how maybe I can use it to make some extra money. I really love it and have been taking more and more pictures.
  6. I love peanut butter. I can eat it right out of the jar, and sometimes do….don’t judge.
  7. I am a huge procrastinator. Like really bad. And it is awful. I need to get better at that…..

Here are links to 15 blogs that I love. If you haven’t seen them, you should definitely check them out!

{pretty things & potty mouths} {more icing please} {beingzhenya} {nest design studio} {twentysomething life}

{creativknot} {los rodriguez life} {drinkrunyoga} {junkyard candy} {my meandering trail} {ashley bollinger}

{andventures of andrea} {pearls and paris} {the miles and musings of a friendly runner} {the jiggly bits}

It is so hard to choose 15 bloggers. There are so many amazing blogs out there! I hope you check some of these out. It will be worth it!

Thank you again to Jessie Homemaker for the nomination! It means a lot!

Quote

{make mistakes}

2 Jan

I found this quote on Facebook and wanted to share with you guys. It is very fitting for the new year and really makes sense. Making mistakes shows that you are trying. So I wish this for all of you.

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.

So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, this year and forever.”

~Neil Gaiman
