Wordless Wednesday and an award!

I love awards. And nothing like getting them from your peers in the blog world, makes you feel good and inspired!  So Thanks to Beth over at Two Monkeys and a Washtub, I can't thank you enough, I hope you understand how much this truly means to me.

The rules for this award are as follows:
1. Thank and link back to the person that gave you the award. Thanks Beth! You rock!

2. Please share 7 things about yourself. As if I haven't done enough of that lately! I'll try and pick somethings I haven't talked about yet. Here we go:

-I need a vacation without the kids. They are driving me insane. For our 10th wedding anniversary I desperately want to go back to where we took our honeymoon, Sandals Resort in Antigua. But...I may not come back!

-I have the best husband in the world. He is my best friend. He is also my complete opposite. Where I am hyper and always on the go, he is more relaxed and rational. Perfect for me.

-If it weren't for C-sections I would have at least one more baby. But I think three is a good number and that's about all the c-sections I can take. I don't know how the Duggar mama does it.

-Although I closed down shop and we decided 3 was our lucky number, I miss being pregnant. Until the end, I loved everyone of my pregnancies, it is truly a miracle that goes on in there.

-I love my minivan. Before I had kids I swore I wouldn't be one of those moms in the minivan, but it's great, spacious and I wouldn't change it for the world. I love my Honda Odyssey!!

-I swam in college and all throughout my school years. I haven't been in the water since my first was born and I miss it. Competing, yes. But as I watch them in swim lessons, I miss the feel of the water at my fingertips and the motionless quiet you get from being engulfed by the water.

-I love to sing. I didn't say I was good at it or that I would do it in public. But I love to sing in the car and in the shower. Yes, I'm one of those people you see when you look over at the car next to you, jamming to the beat, singing the song, making up their own words and  enjoying every minute.

3. Pass the award to 7 fellow bloggers that inspire you. and 4. Let them know about the award.

These bloggers inspire me with their extremely personable stories. They make me laugh and sometimes reflect, but I enjoy reading all of them.


  1. Aw, thank you SO much, Danielle! And congrats on getting your award! I've enjoyed getting to know you over the past few weeks! is it your 10 year anniversary this year? it's ours as well, and we had a big trip planned that got replaced by a family reunion of sorts. Heartbroken!! Hoping we can still sneak away to Vegas for a few days at some point!

  2. Thanks for the thanks!

  9. you miss being pregnant AND you drive a minivan? i'm not sure we can be blog friends! HAHA! just kidding of course!

    thank you, thank you for the one lovely blog award! i appreciate it!

  10. Ack! I'm so honored to be chosen! Thank you SOOO much for the lovely award! Man, I have so many things I want to say in response to your 7 things. I'm going to list them for you - be prepared for the world's longest blog comment.

    1. I love my minivan. Absolutely love it. What I want to know is why anyone would drive anything else? They have no idea what they're missing.

    2. I didn't swim competitively, but regret that I didn't. I should have. And I feel an affinity with the water and CRAVE it so hard when I have to go without swimming. It's one reason I so desperately want to sign up for a triathlon. I'd have no excuse but to go swimming.

    3. I'm a terrible singer, but I still love to. (My kids, on the other hand, beg me to stop. True story.)

    I hope you have an absolutely wonderful weekend!


Thanks for stopping by! I love comments!
