More features and some awards!

I feel so special!
I've been featured again!

and

Thank you for featuring my projects, ladies!


In other exciting news . . .




So, I am supposed to share {7} things about myself.  Here goes:

{#1}
I LOVE to travel.
I have traveled all around the world.  My favorite spots are Italy (I have GOT to take my husband to Venice someday!), Germany and China.  On my list of places to go?  Spain and Australia.

{#2}
I am a work-out-a-holic.
It's true.  I'm at the gym five days a week.  And I love the hard classes.  Ten years ago I would NOT have said this!  I've come a long way, folks :)

{#3}
I turn 30 this year!
I've been in denial just a little bit about this fact, but I'm trying to embrace it.  I informed my husband that I probably need a big party on my birthday so that I can party it up instead of feeling depressed!

{#4}
I have a secret obsession with peanut butter.
Okay, maybe it's not so secret, but it's true!  I really, really like peanut butter.  A lot.  I don't know why it is so good, but life without peanut butter would be a very sad place.  And you'll probably hear me mention this more than once on this blog :)

{#5}
I love Netflix!
We got rid of our satellite last year and I haven't looked back, thanks to Netflix.  We stream it through our Wii and I don't miss Dish Network at all!

{#6}
I tried out for American Idol!
It was clear back during the second season, and I didn't make it, but it was so much fun doing it.  I camped out overnight on an air mattress that had a hole in it (we had to take turns pumping it back up) and it was freezing outside.  But I have a great story to tell about it now :)

{#7}
I have a Bachelor's degree in Communications.
I'm really glad I got my degree, and I've thought about going back to get a Master's, but now isn't the right time to do it.  And a Communications degree is really super helpful when you're yelling trying to communicate with your kids all day.  Ahem.


So there you have it, a little glimpse into me.

And now, I get to nominate 15 other Bloggers!
Well, I am supposed to nominate 15, but so many people that I wanted to nominate have already received one, so I'm nominating 11.
Don't hate.

I wanted to nominate new-ish blogs/bloggers and I've recently found lots of great new blogs, thanks to linky parties!
Sooooo . . . I would like to nominate:

I still think it's nuts you didn't get farther with your voice. And I too have found a love of working out. Ok I don't love it but it helps me in my mothering. And I love pb and I turn 30 too! Ha I guess it runs in the fam.
