Friday: A birthday and an award!

I just received an official blog award! This is something that has not ever happened before, so I’m incredibly excited!

Thanks to Living at the Whitehead Zoo! How she has time to hand out awards is beyond me … she’s the mom of a teen, a tween, and a toddler. Whew! And I thought my life was difficult with just one kid!

Anyway, apparently there are ‘rules’ for this Versatile Blogger Award, and they include:
-Thanking the person who gave you the award (but, please don’t feel obligated – It’s Easter weekend. You’re busy moms. I get it!)
-Divulge 7 things about yourself
-Award 15 bloggers with this award (also, don’t feel obligated about this part either. It’s incredibly time consuming! But, fun ... so do it if you have the time!)

Sooooo, 7 things about me …
-Today is a Baby-free day in my house. She’s with her grandparents until tomorrow.
-So, I slept until 8 am today. Bliss.
-Tomorrow is Husband’s birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SWEET HUSBAND! I LOVE YOU!!
-Today we plan to do absolutely nothing productive. We’re both off of work and without responsibility.
-As nice as a ‘day off’ is, I already miss my sweet little girl.
-In less than 2 days, I will be reunited with the love of my life: diet coke. Why I chose this year to start giving something up for Lent is beyond me. No mother should ever give up caffeine. Ever.
-I’m super excited that the photobucket issue has been resolved and I have my background back. Motherhood is still misspelled, but I’m thinking about leaving it that way!

Now, the bloggers I must award as ‘Versatile Bloggers’ …
1- Life of a New Mommy
2-2 Much Testosterone
3-Amber Page Writes
4-Day to Day
5-Holly’s House…not a perfect moms blog
6-Momma’s Pixie Dreams
7-Mommy’s Fabulous
8-Mommy Loves Stilettos
9-Mommy’s Sippy Cup
10-Single Mom in the South
11-Taming Insanity
12-The Thoughtful Parent
13-Work, Wife, Mom … Life!
14-I’m Living Proof that God Has a Sense of Humor
15-Life in the Pitts

I have NO idea if I did this correctly, but it was fun taking a closer look at some of my favorite blogs. I love them ALL, so this was hard to do! If you haven’t visited these blogs, take a look … they’re awesome!

Happy Friday! Happy Birthday to Husband! Happy Easter! Have a good one!
