My first BLOG AWARD!

     My sweet friends over at Carolina Heart Strings have awarded me with the 'Stylish Blogger Award'! I am so excited to be accepting my first blog award : ) After only blogging for 4 short months, I am so honored they would choose my blog to award : )  Thank you ladies so much!  In order for me to accept this award there are 4 duties I must perform:

  1. Make a post and link back to the blog that awarded me
  2. Share 7 things about myself
  3. Award my favorite bloggers
  4. Contact the bloggers I want to pass this award on to

7 Things about myself.....

  • I have 6 sisters and 1 brother
  • After high school I moved to Arizona and lived there for 5 years
  • I have worked in the medical field for almost 10 years
  • I worked at Wal-Mart Distribution center for a short time, and met my husband while working there
  • I was a vegetarian for almost a full year when I was 24 yrs old
  • I am not afraid to speak my mind
  • I am addicted to Diet Pepsi  : /

These are some of my favorite bloggers I am so happy to pass this award on to:

Kaitlin over at Kaitlin in the Kitchen   ( Kaitlins blog is one of the very first food blogs I started looking at. I love her! She is so sweet and has such an amazing food blog! I think her and I would be great friends if she didnt live so far away!)

Mandy over at Mandys Recipe Box   ( I met Mandy through Tasty Kitchen. I feel like we have so much in common and her taste in food is exactly like mine..  She is another gal I know I would hang out with if we lived closer! )

Kim over at Quit Eating Out   ( I dont even remember how I came across Kims blog, but it is great! She has so many delicious recipes on there. She also hosts 'Saturday Swap' and 'Link Partys' which I think is such a great way to find out about other food blogs!)

Sally over at My Homemade Life   ( I just love Sally!! She is so funny and whitty and has the best recipes! I also met Sally over at Tasty Kitchen. She has such a great blog, please check it out! )

Steph over at Plain Chicken   ( I just love Stephs blog! Her blog is anything, but Plain! She has many many delicious recipes and cute posts about her life! )

   I just want to say THANK YOU again to Carolina Heart Strings for this blog award! You ladies are so sweet!!
