And the Nominees are…

When I started this little blog a few weeks ago, I never thought that anyone would really read it besides my husband LOL!  As a matter of fact, I didn’t even know that people could even find my blog! (Shameful I know!) But here I am nearly a month later with some faithful readers and a host of new blogger friends having the time of my life. I’m so glad that I started this blog. It’s one of the best things I have done in a long time!

Even though I haven’t been blogging very long, my little blog has managed to garner some attention and I have been nominated for 2 awards! Whoo hoo! This is such an honor to even be nominated especially since there are a plethora of awesome bloggers here in cyberspace. So thank you so much to Donah aka AJ’s Mom from Sweet Jelly Bean for nominating me for the Very Inspiring Blog award.

Now here is a little randomness from my life just for you!

1. I have a birthmark in my hand in the shape of a pizza! Apparently my mother was obsessed with pizza during her pregnancy with me.

2. I am actually very shy around people I first meet. But once I feel comfortable around you, I will transform into a chatterbox!

3. My favorite type of food is Mexican food & Southern home cooking!

4. I would love to adopt some children in the future!

5. I am so moved every time I see a homeless person. I just want to pick them up and take them home with me! I usually give them money even if its just enough to buy a bottle of water.My friends and family think I’m a sucker for some people who just play the part. I don’t care though. I just think no one should have to live on the street. I would love to open a homeless shelter one day!

6. I used to be a tom boy until around the age of 18 then I transformed into a fashion lover! Before that you couldn’t pay me to put on a dress!

7. I am a social media junkie! I love anything that I can use to interact with others and bring a little joy to their day!

Well that’s all folks! Thanks for reading 🙂

Until next post,

    Thank you so much for nominating me! You’re so sweet! I’m going to bookmark this to do on a rainy day.
    I am a sucker for homeless people, too. I usually don’t have cash on me so I have to say no, but whenever I’ve got loose change, I always give it to them! It’s really hard for me to say no!
