Illuminating Blogger Award

This is going to be a great week.  This girl is starting the week with a blog award nomination.  I have been nominated for the Illuminating Blogger Award by C.J at FoodStories.  Thanks so much for recognizing my blog.  It’s fun to share recipes and get food ideas from so many sources on the internet.  It’s seems like your weekly menu planning can never get dull and boring with so many resources available.

It has been so much fun writing and sharing my stories of life, food, motherhood and grandmahood.  There are so many things to learn about blogging and writing.  Sometimes I feel like a big sponge soaking up all of the information available at my fingertips.  Finding out that people like to read what you are writing about is just the icing on the cake.

In the spirit of the award here is some randomness about me.  My adult life until last August was all about work and family.  Sometimes I would get the priority of those two things mixed up, have to stop, breathe and re-focus myself.  This can happen to you when all of your kids are in their twenties, like mine are.  Now I am love, love, loving my new-found title of “domestic goddess”, coined by my husband, Travel Man.   There’s not a whole lot that can compare to setting your own schedule, and doing what you want, when you want.

To my fellow bloggers – there are so many blogs I enjoy reading.  If I list my top five they would be (in no particular order):

1) the thing about joan – Wonderful Mom stories.  Reminds me of my days with 4 kids in tow, going everywhere.

2) Rantings of an Amateur Chef – Love the presentation of recipes here, and the stories that go along with them.

3) Shutterbug Sage– Such a great collection of pictures.   I love photography, and love looking at the world through another photographer’s eye.

4) Maggiesonebuttkitchen – What a plethora of recipes to choose from.  I am looking forward to making some of Maggie’s recipes over the summer.  Yum, yum.

5) Meg Travels– Meg has great pictures of her travel adventures, and I love reading her tips and tricks for great travel experiences.

Thanks again CJ for this nomination.  It’s really fun writing and exploring other bloggers sites, and learning about what’s interests people.  Happy writing and exploring to all.

 

 

One Lovely Blog Award

I am pleased as punch to share with everyone that I have received a nomination for the “One Lovely Blog Award”.  My fellow blogger, Joan,  at thethingaboutjoan has graciously nominated me for this award.   Joan’s writing is from the heart, and I love how she writes about her experiences day in and day out with her kids. Thanks Joan!

My domestic Goddess status has given me the freedom in the last year to learn about blogging and writing my little life’s stories.  So far it has been a wonderful journey working on writing and sharing little bits and pieces of my family’s life.

In the spirit of this award here are 7 things you may find interesting about me:

1)   I just discovered how much I love writing in this past year.  So far it has been a pretty eye-opening experience for me.

2)  My sister is my best friend.  We don’t live close to one another, but we are learning how much we can lean on each other.  Hugs to you Laura!

3)  Becoming a Grandma is one of life’s experiences that you can’t really explain in words to someone else.  You just having to experience it!

4)  Being married to a road warrior is a challenge, but it is a challenge that I accept and embrace.

5)There is no single word to describe how incredible it is to be able to help your parents with anything they need, when they have ALWAYS been there for you.  Love you Mom & Dad!!

6)  Painting any room in my house is a hobby I love, love, love.

7) My brother and I played a guitar duet in the mall for our guitar recital, many, many moons ago.  Remember this Jim?

  5. The Suburban Cook– Kim has an amazing way of writing about her cooking, and intertwining her life happenings with her food experiences.
  6. Joan on the Road – This is my Mom’s blog page.  My parents live in their RV fulltime, and my Mom has a wonderful way of drawing you into her stories.
