An Award!

What a crazy weekend! I am alive... kind of. But when I came back to life I saw that Beth over at Sand to Pearl gave me an award! WOO HOO!!!! We all need a little compliment from time to time to make us feel good and this made my day! Thank you Beth!
1. Post who it was that gave you the award.
2. List 10 things that you like.
3. Give this award to 10 other blogs and let them know with a comment.

1. My family is my life. I can have the worst day in the world and all I need is a smile or a little hug from one of my kids and my heart is so full.
2. Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks! I could literally bathe in this stuff. Ok, not literally, but I would use it in everything, tea, coffee, ice cream. Oh yeah! (And no I am not getting paid to say this by the good people at Starbucks, but if they ever see this and give me a gift card or a lifetime supply of the Pumpkin Spice, I would be able to die a happy girl!)
3. A Pair of sexy heals. I do not own a single pair of them, but I love to look at them and dream. I don't think I am coordinated enough to wear these, but aren't they GORGEOUS?!
4. Musicals! I am a huge fan of the arts and when my kids get to be a little older I would love to start doing some community theater! I was banned from bringing in music at my old job because all I had were show tunes and Disney music! Party Poopers!
5. Vintage inspired clothes. In the 1940's-1950's women's curves were sought after and celebrated! With shows like "Mad Men" I love how they are showing off curves and making a come back into fashion! For a woman who is... shapes, I love seeing things like this that really say, "Yes, I have curves. No, they aren't going anywhere. And, yes, I am beautiful."
6. The "New Baby Smell." You know what I'm talking about. If only we could bottle that scent to carry around with us, I am pretty sure those of us with "Baby Fever" would be able to make it for a little while longer.
(This is my son about a month old. Why do they have to get big?)

7. Old Farm Houses. When we decide to sell this house we are in (which was move in ready when we bought it six years ago) I would like to find something simple, older, has tons of character and has some history to it. I would love something out in the country, but let's be honest, there are no TJ Maxx's out in the country, so it might not work out so great.
7. The "Twilight Series." Now, before you think I'm one of "those" people, not that there is anything wrong with them, I enjoyed the books and the movies. I wanted to read them over the summer to see what all the hype was about and I enjoyed them, they were an easy read, not a fantastic read, but good. As for the last book, I enjoyed it, but my husband kept saying I had a funny, confused look on my face the whole time. I knew that I was reading a book about vampires and werewolves, but that last book was a smidge far fetched for me. If you've read it, you know what I mean.

(If you're still reading this, let me say that this is way harder than it looks!)
8. Aprons! I love aprons and I love making them! They're the best gifts and are just so fun!
Anthropologie vintage aprons
9. Farm House Tables. I have been looking for tons of inspiration for a farm table because I want to transform my current table into something like it. I want something like this! I also love the look of all different chairs around the table, makes it feel like everyone and anything is welcome at your table.
10. Tattoos. GASP!!!! What?! Let me explain. I was raised Mormon, so getting a tattoo is considered destroying God's Temple. I don't think I would ever get one, just because I would be afraid that it would look bad and be there forever. And I also don't think I would be able to pull it off. But I am still fascinated with the art and meanings of some of the individuals' choices. Two of my brothers want to get one as a tribute to our brother that died 7 years ago and I think that is a special thing they can do as brothers' to remember our brother. But to each his own right?
(This is Kat Von D from "L.A. Ink" and I just think she is gorgeous!)

Now I am going to give this award to 10 bloggers that I am inspired by. The problem I have with this part is narrowing my choices down to only 10 as there are so many talented women out there that are so incredible and inspire me every day! So here goes.
1. Kimbo at A Girl and a Glue Gun Not only is she incredibly talented, she is insanely funny!
2. I'm More Than Just a Mom I think her name is Allie, and she is just the cutest thing ever! She's so talented and her blog name totally sums up what all of us want to believe.
3. Becki at Whippy Cake This girl is ADORABLE! She helped me with her hair tutorials to get past the horrible length that I'm at now by doing new things. She also did the most amazing thing for her 26th birthday, doing Random Acts of Kindness. You have to read it, inspired me to make my 26th a little more special this year.
4. Twig Decor I love her pictures and her "Things Bloggers Do" series cracks me up! So funny!
5. Jess at Craftiness is Not Optional If I was a little girl, I would want to be adopted by her! She makes the cutest little girl clothes... and the cutest little girls for that matter!
6. The ladies over at Lemon Tree Creations Amazing. Awesome. Coolest ideas ever! Enough said!
7. Gertie at Gertie's New Blog for Better Sewing Ok this is a woman that I want to be friends with... ok, maybe just so I could raid her closet. I'm kidding. She makes vintage clothing look so amazing and she's gorgeous to boot!
8. Sachiko at Tea Rose Home This woman was the one that opened my eyes to the world of ruffles! And now, I can't stop!
9. Jeanne at A Bushel and a Peck The way this woman writes makes you feel like you are her long time friend. Her trip to France over the summer looked so amazing and all of her pictures and fun stories, just can't get enough of it!
10. Last but definitely not least, Cheri at I Am Momma Hear Me Roar This woman has helped me remember to craft for my son! The blog world is FULL of cute girl things, but it's hard to find cute boy things. This woman rocks my world! I totally want a shirt for myself that says, "I Fight Bad Guys!:"
