The Envelope, Please...

Wow! I've been honoured with TWO awards! A fellow Canadian, Tracy at The Daily Mom Diaries has chosen to bestow upon me the "One Lovely Blog" and "Beautiful Blogger" awards. I'm so touched, and happy to know someone likes reading these random musings about my life!

Here's the deal:

For the "One Lovely Blog Award" you need to:
* Thank & link to the person that gave you the award.
* Pass this award on to 15 fantastic bloggers you’ve recently discovered.
* Contact said Blogs and let them know they’ve won

For the "Beautiful Blogger" award you need to:
* Thank & link to the person that gave you the award.
* Pass this award on to 15 fantastic bloggers you’ve recently discovered.
* Contact said Blogs and let them know they’ve won.
* State 7 things about yourself.

Here are the 15 bloggers I am passing these awards on to. Check them out when you have a chance!
  1. Adventuroo
  2. Life of a Modern Mom
  3. Losing My Behind
  4. Motherhood Uncensored
  5. Prior Fat Girl
  6. Mama Still Wears Gucci
  7. Pampers and Pinot
  8. Ironic Mom
  9. Cheaper Than Therapy
  10. Honoring Health
  11. Letters from Crazyville (a mom on the edge)
  12. Healthy Loser Gal
  13. Workout Mommy
  14. Smart Ass Mom
  15. Bored Mommy
And to fulfill my responsibilities as an award recipient, here are seven things about me:
  1. I watched High School Musical 3 last night. I secretly (not so secret now) enjoy the entire HSM series.
  2. I saw the movie "Newsies" 4 times in the theatre. I was dealing with a minor Christian Bale obsession at the time.
  3. If you haven't noticed by my spelling, I am Canadian. I will always put a "u" in humour, colour, honour...and probably many more words I can't think of right now.
  4. I am slightly addicted to Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches. It was almost grounds for divorce when I thought Mr. Awesome had eaten the last one.
  5. Sometimes I go and buy clothes just because I'm feeling overwhelmed by the pile of laundry.
  6. I used to work for a restaurant chain in their marketing department. This was only partly to blame for the 53lbs I am now working to shed.
  7. I secretly believe I have the power to will stuff to happen. I was actually surprised the other night when we didn't win the 50/50 draw at the Canucks game. I have no basis whatsoever for this belief, but maybe one day it will work...
Thank you to Tracy at The Daily Mom Diaries for these awards. Please stop by her site and check it out!
