Two memes and an award

Two memes and an award

Farrah at Baby Loves Slings tagged me to write 7 True Things about myself, so here goes:

  1. I am left-handed.
  2. I have green eyes.
  3. I have a not-so-secret love affair with chocolate.
  4. I would love to give birth to another baby, but am unsure if more than two children is right for our family.
  5. I don’t wear antiperspirant, just deodorant.
  6. My first pet was a goldfish named “George.”
  7. I’m a perfectionist by nature, but have had to relax a bit, OK, a LOT since having kids.

I’m not tagging anyone specifically, but please feel free to play along if you’d like and let me know that you did so I can come read more about you. :)

Community Blogger Award

And lastly, Phyllis at Ima on (and off) the Bima recently gave me the Community Blogger Award which was designed to “celebrate people who reach out and makes the blogger community a better one.” I’m so honored and felt so touched by what she wrote about me. Thank you, Phyllis. :)

I would like to pass the Community Blogger Award on to Kristen at Green Style Mom. Her blog may be fairly new, but I think she is already doing an awesome job to raise awareness about the importance of doing your part to go green, as well as providing a lot of great resources to help you on your way. She is trying to make the world a better place and that makes her a community blogger in my book. I hope you will check her site out. :) She also has some super cute Christmas cards with a great green message for sale.
