My 1st Blog Award

28 Jan

Last week I was nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by Raquel from The HeART.  I recently found her blog through a contest she is holding, and I can’t get enough!  Her blog is so beautifully designed; I can’t stop looking at it.  Her daughter is about the same age as Annaliese so its fun to read too.  If you want to check it out here is her site.



7 Bloggers I Follow:

1. Kilburn 365

2. Growing Wilder

3. In High Spirits

4. Strength, Hope, and Everything Inbetween

5. Curry Clan Column

6. Run Inspired

7. Eco Incognito


7 Things I’d Like Them to Know

1. I prefer my candy frozen (gummy bears, milky ways…)

2. My husband and I had a brief online romance 5 years before we actually talked in person.

3. I like to scrapbook, sew, and do any kind of craft really.

4. I cried on my first day of 2nd grade at a new school because a girl told me if I wanted to be friends with her, I had to dress like a tom boy the next day.  I had no idea what a tom boy was…very upsetting.

5. I love The Bachelor and Bachelorette.

6. If I could wear a hot pink pair of flats everyday I would.  That’s what I wore under my wedding dress!

7. The sweetest sound I’ve ever heard is Annaliese making herself laugh.


If you made the list, here is what to do

  • thank the person who gave you this award.
  • include a link to their blog.
  • next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
  • nominate those 15 bloggers for the versatile blogger award.
  • finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

    I think I am the most intrigued by the online romance you had with your husband 5 years before you talked in person. I knew him then so it is hard to picture but…still waters run deep, as they say.

    Hi, Jordan! Congrats on your first blog award! (And thanks for the shout out!)

    I’m going to have to go with Nana (above) on this one. I am very interested in the story of how you met your husband online for a brief romance — and why there was a 5 year gap before you talked in person. It sounds like there’s a story behind that!

      Chris and I talked online in typical awkward middle school fashion but never actually made eye contact at school. We didn’t actually speak until after we graduated from high school. It’s a weird story but I guess it worked out ok!
      Hope you enjoyed your snow day yesterday!

    The gummy bears were always in the freezer in a little cup, or better yet, shoved down into ice cream for a quick freeze! The “tom boy” incident was very traumatic for you, I remember it all to well. Her name was Shelby.
