Boyohboyohboyohboy! More nominations! How exciting! Now normally I do response posts separate from my Saturday posts, but in the spirit of shaking things up I decided to make today’s post and my response post one in the same. I am just a crazy free spirit like that. Also just to be clear it has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that I couldn’t otherwise think of anything to write about today, that is purely coincidence.
From the lovely mama over at An exhausted mom’s journey to publication I have been nominated for The Very Inspiring Blogger Award! If you have yet to go over and have a visit at her blog, get your butt over there and have a peek!
The second nomination comes from Kristy over at the very interesting-to-read blog Family, Friends and Everything in Between for the Bouquet of Three Award(s)! The Best Moment Award, The Versatile Blogger Award and The Sunshine Award!
Lets boogey on, shall we? The rules for both awards are actually one in the same
- Display the Award Certificate on your website.
- Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented you with the award.
- Present 15 awards to deserving bloggers.
- Drop them a comment to tip them off after you have linked them in the post.
- Post 7 interesting things about yourself.
OK so here is the thing (1) I am running out of things to tell you about myself, so instead I have chosen to just tell you about how awesome this day is going to be. (2) Right now I am eating pop corn, which I popped and then added salt, sugar, AND butter to… you know cause I am cutting down on my chip intake in an attempt to eat healthier… After I have polished off this bowl of deliciously salty sweet and fatty popcorn, I will then be moving on to doing 155 squats as I am (3) doing the 30 day squat challenge. Also I will have you know that today, though however hot and sunny, will be an inside day as (4) we all look like a family of little lobsters, and apparently (5) my children sweat some sort of sunscreen deactivation serum. Continuing on, after my attempts at 155 squats, and attempting to not squish my children with my butt as they use my legs as a tunnel during my exercise, it will then be time to clean. (6) I enjoy putting the radio on and dancing whilst I clean, and every time am sure to close the blinds as well, so the neighbors don’t see the crazy lady doing the tango with the vacuum. Between baby wrangling, fort making, lunch eating, children napping (OK me too), Chelsie getting and the before mentioned cleaning dance party this will most likely take the majority of the day. Later this afternoon when Jeff gets home it will be time to head out for our (7) bi-weekly big family grocery shop, which I actually LOVE doing… I get to get dressed up and put on make up and leave the house! (is that sad?)
And that will be my day… sounds pretty darn fantastic and thrilling right?….. right
Well here we are at the part I always find the hardest, that being the part where I have to actually choose my own nominations! Now I have been known to cheat a little bit when it comes to these awards, no one said I was perfect, and so I think this particular post would feel a little left out if I didn’t cheat just a little bit on this one as well. Rather than nominate 15 for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award and then another 15 for The Bouquet Of Three Award(s) I think I will do 8 for the VIBA and 7 for the BOTA(s)! Sounds good to me! Here goes.

*Phew* Done and done. If you have the time, or even if you don’t find it! And go have a peek through these blogs. All very deserving of their nominations and I always look forward to reading their posts.
One last thank-you-thank-you to An exhausted Mom and Kristy for your nominations, I am always so excited to receive any kind of blogger award, it helps keep up my hopes of one day becoming rich and famous… OK well more like it just feels wonderful to be thought of by such brilliant bloggers!
Away I fly now, squats awaiting and a vacuum longing for a dance partner.
Until next Saturday! Tata!!
