It's a Major Award! I won it!

Props to anyone who got The Christmas Story reference! I did win a major award, thanks to Esther over at Not Quite Perfect, but I don't think it's a bowling alley. Actually, it was 3 major awards in 1. (Esther must be a coupon shopper too!)

Esther emailed me today to say that she nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award and I'm so touched! I'm going to try to avoid rambling for 15 minutes about how I can't believe how much support I've received over the last few months since starting my life blog, and how I love you all and I promise to name one child after each and every one of you....

Okay, seriously though... I really do appreciate all your support and a great big THANK YOU shout out to Esther, who thinks I'm funny :)

(See what happens when you tell me I'm funny!)

So, to fulfill my obligation for accepting this award I need to do the following:

Thank Esther- THANKS ESTHER!!!!

Write 7 facts about myself....

I was voted Most School Spirited in high school.

I have paid every credit card I've ever own in full every month. (I'm especially proud of this one!)

I have 3 Facebook accounts. One for myself, one for my work self and one for my blog self. 

I carried a hankie that belonged to my great grandmother at my wedding... as did both of my bridesmaids and another good friend too. I also carried the silver dollar that my mom carried at her wedding (which belonged to my great-great grandparents, one of their only lasting belongings) and a silver dollar that my mother-in-law wore in her shoe. I carried both coins in the small white leather pouch that my parent's wedding bands came in. 

I collect flattened pennies- the kind that you get stamped from machines at tourist attractions.

When I was a child my parents called me "Little Missy I Can Do It All By Myself."

I got out in the second round of the 3rd grade spelling bee with the word "treasure." (And yes, I spell checked that just now.)

And I must also nominate 15 other blogs for this award. (See list below)

The second major award she gifted me was the Sunshine Blog Award. It appears as if I only have to regifted this award to 7 blogs, but I'll go ahead and thank Esther again! 

The third award is the Liebster Blog Award. The Liebster Award is given to blogs with 300 or less followers in attempt to increase exposure and blog traffic. What a nice idea and awesome community! 

So, without further ado, here are the blogs that I am regifting these Awards to! (Hey, this is a frugal living blog- regifting is totally PC here!)
