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!

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!

blog under construction {kind of}

6 Apr
So I have been playing around with the way my blog looks for a little bit. I haven’t had a ton of time to just sit and play, but I have been doing a little here and there. I was getting bored with the way it was looking and want to make it look more like me. I still want to add a header and maybe a few other things. I think I found a background I like and a theme I like. It is a start anyway.
This have been crazy busy because I have been trying to apply for jobs, which takes up so much time and is so annoying, and other things have been going on. Most of the time I feel like I just want to curl up in my bed in my sweats and sleep or read or just lay there.
Hopefully I can spend some more time on this blog and actually start really blogging again. I decided to not do another photo challenge right now because I was feeling totally unmotivated and I also wasn’t really blogging about anything else. So I want to get back into that. We have been doing some things that I could be blogging about I just haven’t gotten around to it. My goal is to be better about blogging.
How do you think the blog looks so far? Any suggestions for me about how to make it look better and/or how to get me motivated to be a better blogger?
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
