Beautiful Blogger Award

I was given a blog award by Jana over at Homeschooling a Texas Tornado. Thanks Jana, I LOVE awards!!

The rules for this award are as follows:

Thank the person who kindly passed this to you, and link your award back to them.
List 7 things about yourself.
Pass it on to 15 blogs that deserve a Beautiful Blogger Award.
Let them know they earned this award.

I've been trying to come up with 7 things about me, and came up with a total blank. So, in honor of Valentine's Day, I'll tell you 7 things about my relationship:

1) I met my husband online!
2) Our first date was breakfast and the 9a.m., opening day showing of Star Wars Episode 2. Yep, we're dorks...
3) I fell for him because he loves traveling and animals, and because he treats me incredibly well.
4) Traveling and animals may be the only 2 things we have in common! We are very different people... Sometimes we drive each other crazy, but we hope our relationship will teach Crumpet that all people can learn to compromise and to love each other, no matter their belief system, abilities, or interests!
5) We've been together since May 2002 and married since October 2003.
6) We went on our honeymoon in Greece. A month before our wedding, and with my 2 best girlfriends. We rarely follow the norm...
7) I have been really lucky that despite his totally different upbringing, my husband has been completely accepting of my choice to cloth diaper, breastfeed, make my own organic babyfood, and now homeschool our son. I couldn't do any of this without his support! I love my hubby!
I'm lazy and not up to linking this to 15 blogs right now, but I'm sending it out to all of my followers (15 exactly, how perfect!). I would like to specifically send it to someone pretty new to the blog world, Brandie at Our Turn to Dance. Her blog is lovely - go check it out!


  1. Congratulations! And what fun facts. I got to go to Greece for a short trip when I was in high school and loved it.

  2. I love your list of 7 things about your relationship! You sound like a fun couple. :) I look forward to reading your blog, even though I've been awful about commenting lately, and I'm glad you got this award - you definitely deserve it!

  3. Thank you so much for the award! I just caught it (seriously behind the times here!). Thank you so much!
