I accept

Oh behalf of my my son, my husband, and all the other loyal subjects for this somewhat daily blog, I graciously accept the honor bestowed upon me by both Kristy and Sara. Yes, 2 out of a mere million bloggers have deemed me a "Kreativ Blogger". Clearly the originator is not in the running for the spelling bee champ but I presume that is just their quirky, or "kreativ" way of getting ones attention. And clearly I'm not too creative since I'm copying the picture idea from Sara! Nonetheless, thank you both for the award and now I will do as I'm told and list 7 things I love, in no particular order.

1. A bit obvious but no list of my top fav's would be complete without them, my family!

2. Charleston, SC - There are few places that I like to go back to time and time again but Charleston is definitely one of the exceptions. If there was one place that Wes and I would love to live someday, it would be Charleston.3. DESSERTS! I remember when I was first learning to spell and someone, probably my dad, told me a great way to remember if dessert had 2 s's or 1. He said you'd rather have 2 desserts than 2 deserts. He probably didn't intend for me to take the lesson quite so literally but here I am a self-confessed (and obsessed) dessert lover!

4. Spring flowers! It could be because spring is upon us and I'm so ready for the cold to be gone for another year but it's also because I love the vibrant colors and scents associated with daffodils, hyacinths, and tulips! What a great way to make someone smile!

5. Cooking - now there's a shocker! I love searching for recipes in magazines, books, blogs, and of course, the Food Network. I wish there were more hours in the day for me to cook.

6. A new article of clothing - there's nothing better than the feeling you have the first day you wear something new. People generally notice it (unless you work in an office of men) and you just feel good about yourself. Shallow, maybe, but we all need a little boost from time to time.

7. Craft projects - that's pretty broad but there are too many to name just one. I love the creative outlet that scrapbooking, sewing, and painting provide. Stay tuned for one of my latest projects! Colin will be the proud recipient of my masterpiece.

I'm now to bestow this great honor to 7 other creative bloggers. The nominees are:
Cara - Creatively juggles working with raising 3 children...and she wants more!
Nicole - A bargain-hunting-stay-at-home-mom whom I've just recently met and am anxious to learn more about.
Amber - Wow, this mother is raising a living miracle! Check out her story, it's truly amazing.
Wendy - Truly THE scrapbook goddess of the century!
Jesslee - A girl on a mission with some white jeans. Sorry, I could totally write something else but that's the first thing that came to my mind!
Emily - Who is way more creative in the kitchen than I could ever dream of being!
Kijsa - Who, with her sister, put my craft in crafting!

I'm anxious to read each of your lists! And here's a button if you'd like your blog to wear it with pride.


  1. How fun is this?! Thanks so much! I must say, I've only driven through Charleston, but that was enough to make me want to go back some day. And also, I WISH I was able to be a stay-at-home mom! I guess I technically have two jobs at the moment...I'm a Realtor and I'm also the administrative assistant for our real estate office for the time being. I guess this means I don't talk about work much in my blog :)

  2. Haha, thank you so much! Congrats to you as well. That's a very nice compliment.

    I would love to visit Charleston. It seems beautiful..

  3. Thank you, thank you!!! You are the best...first for this fabulous award...(we do love that it starts with a k-it coordinates so well with our names!!!) and for the most amazing package I just opened up- Yum, Yum...Our house is smelling like chocolate, and I am getting the do not disturb sign out for the bath!!
    Thank you so much for your sweet words! Off to soak...
    kari & kijsa

  4. Ahh, thanks!
    And so funny (it's only KY). You'd thought I was going to the Bahamas, haha! I left sunny & 70's to come to this lovely rain.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of craftiness you've been working on for Colin.
