Liebster Award

I think the stars must have aligned because somehow I have been extraordinarily fortunate enough to receive two awards this week from two fabulous bloggers.  Kadie from Seven Alive awarded me the Butterfly Award, and now Amy from One Artsy Mama is honouring me with the Liebster Award.  That these super talented gals thought of my little blog when they were looking to showcase someone has left me feeling grateful and special.

The Liebster Award is geared to providing exposure to smaller blogs (less than 300 followers is the definition that is given).  

The rules are to pick 3-5 other small blogs to highlight and also to share 7 things about yourself that people may not know.  I did the 7 things on the Butterfly Award post so I'm going to cheat and copy them here, but I've picked different, small blogs so the love can spread out even farther.  :)

First things first, these are my picks:

Just Our Style - Brandy is a wife and mom who loves to do crafty things on a budget.

Style Burb - Yvonne likes to share ideas for keeping a stylish, well-functioning, comfortable home.

Health Eating for Ordinary People - Rivki makes the most mouth-watering, health recipes.

Balancing the Dream - Jess is a home decor crafter, a wannabe photographer, and a mommy on the go.

Now, 7 things you might not know about me.  Here goes (this is a repeat from the Butterfly Award if you've already read those, lol):

1.  I love sweets and hate clutter and cannot have either in my house at any time or that will be all I think about, and it will make me feel edgy and unsettled and perhaps even just a little bit mean until the culprit disappears.

2.  I started playing ice hockey when I was 13 and played until age 22.  (I'm Canadian.  You're not that surprised are you?)

3.  I faint when I give blood (which I am no longer allowed to do), when I smack a joint (and I'm pretty clumsy), and when it's too hot out and I haven't drank enough water.

4.  I wrote a letter when I was 10 to the Canadian government to request the ban of seal hunting.

5.  I talk in my sleep.

6.  I went to school for journalism (1 year), accounting (1 year), early childhood education (1 year, you see a pattern here?), chemistry (finally graduated) and nursing (yes, graduated this time too).  I could go to school for the rest of my life; I love learning things so much.

7.  I am a HUGE Boston Bruins fan.  HUGE.  No, seriously HUGE.
