First, last night I read that my friend and awesome blogger/mama/photographer/chef/homemaker/ community activist Holli nominated me for a blog award. Awwww! Thanks Holli!
I am sorry that right now I am going to be a little bit of a jerk and not tag all of the bloggers that I am supposed to. My blogging window for the day is rapidly dwindling, unfortunately.
Here are the rules that Holli posted about the award:
- Thank the person who gave you this award.
- Include a link to their blog.
- Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
- Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award.
- Finally, tell the person who nominated you (and those reading this post!) 7 things about yourself.
- Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs.
The one super cool thing is that Holli nominated me because I inspired her! How awesome is that? I have to say that Holli inspires me quite a bit, as well. I secretly suspect there are actually three or four of her, for how much awesomeness she is able to accomplish on any given day.
Second, we are in car-buying hell. We have an older Saturn that I bought when I was pregnant with Iris and it is just slowly falling apart. We also have grand plans of driving to Michigan this summer to see family and, well, the old Saturn would likely not make the trip in one piece. The one blessing/curse of the process is that we are severely limited to certain cars because my tall husband needs to fit comfortably in the car we buy. At 6' 7" this is a pretty, um, tall order. The one really good thing about this, however, is that being limited means much less headache in terms of the "what kind of car is right for me?" question. The right car 1. fits Matt, 2. fits our price range 3. gets decent gas mileage. Boom. Done. We narrowed it down, or so we thought, but now I have made the horrendous mistake of allowing for everyone and their brother to comment on our car buying process and EVERYONE has an opinion!
Of course, adding to all of this fun is trying to drag two unruly children to car dealerships. It is definitely making keeping the car we have look much more attractive.
