Bday Prep and Blog Awards

It's almost time for my baby to turn 1. I am feeling very emotional about this and am busying myself with the preparations so I don't have a breakdown! Had a few photo shoots last week so I can use her photos for decorations at the party. I'm considering dedicating the blog to Daisy next week and posting all about her first year.
Last week I received 3 more blog awards from 2 lovely ladies! I have found so many interesting people through the MckLinky Blog Hops! And since it is customary to pass these awards on to other deserving bloggers, I searched last weeks blog hop and easily found new blogs to bestow these awards upon.

The first award is from Mama M . Thank you so much for thinking my blog is fabulous. Coming from you that is a huge compliment!
And now to get down to business....rules are I need to admit to 5 current obsessions and re-award it to 5 bloggers. Are you ready?

1. I am obsessed with ribbon (for scrapbooking). I love to buy it, display it and admire it but I never want to use it. I'm saving it for that ONE special project! Who knows what that is!

2. I am obsessed with preparing for my daughter's first birthday. Birthday banners, highchair banner, decorations, photo back-drops, cakes, birthday headband, birthday dress, birthday party favors, birthday photo shoots, etc, etc.

3. I am obsessed with Wipeout. OK, not really obsessed, just really "in to." Do any of you watch this? I cry and pee my pants from laughing so hard. Lily and I watch it together after the other kids go to bed. Not a good show for the boys to watch before bed. After they watch they turn their room in to an obstacle course. Did you see the girl last week that kicked herself in the head after jumping on the big balls? Good stuff!

4. I am obsessed with my blog. I lie in bed at night and think of things to post. It is really hurting my beauty sleep which is already wounded by a little girl who thinks she needs to wake up several times during the night! The unnamed child woke up twice while I was trying to post this.

5. I am obsessed with Chipotle. I know where I am going to lunch tomorrow!

And the "Your Blog is Fabulous" award goes to:

Tracy - My Sacred Journey

Genie Marie - The Blazi Gang

Barclay - Unfailing Love

Alyssa - Talley Family

Kristen - Bradley Family Times

The next two awards are from Ave . Thank you Ave!!! Adorable and Uplifting? OH STOP! No rules with these babies, just pass on the love!

The "Adorable Blog" award goes to:

Smith Soup
Joanne - One So Blessed
Ashli - Chasing Today

The "Uplifting Blogger" award goes to:

I'm there with you on being obsessed about blogging. I lie awake thinking about what I will write and my friends and family know that they are privy to me writing about them. Hope you have a precious 1 year old birthday. It is a big deal! They grow up so fast!

I plan to post about it sometime this week. Is there anything I need to do? Do I now have to list 5 obsessions and give 5 blog awards?

Happy 1st birthday! She looks so, so pretty in pink :o)

Congratulations on your awards!
And have to laugh at obsession #4! I have decided I needed to "jot" down what I think of for future blog posts...cuz i know that I'd forget! (so, when I am inspired by the funny moments or crazy situations I find myself...I'll be grabbing a sticky note & pen)

Blessings & aloha!

The Sanders Family said...

I am so honored that you chose me for the uplifting blog award. Thank you! Sorry I haven't replied sooner...things are crazy busy around our household with a newborn and three other kiddos :) You little girl is such a cutie pie. Happy birthday to her!

I think in blogging format. Seriously. I can't have simple thoughts that pass by - they stop and I write and edit and rewrite all in my head. It is an obsession, but I can honestly say I've done this my whole life. Before blogging, I called it thinking in 'article format'. I always 'wrote' my thoughts. :o)

Genie Marie said...

Thank you so much for the blog award....It truly made my day, and I so meant to leave you a comment that day...but I am seriously absent minded lately...Your little one's party was precious and such great pictures:) Thanks again for the award!!
