Kreativ Blogger

Kajoli of Floortime Lite Mama was kind enough to nominate me for the Kreativ Blogger award. If you haven't read her blog, go check it out! She has an adorable little boy whose progress I love to read about, and she shares a lot of great insights and inspiring thoughts along the way :). Thanks, Kajoli!

For those of you who don’t know how these shameless bits of linky love work, here are the rules:

• You must thank the person who has given you the award.
• Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
• Link to the person who has nominated you for the award.
• Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
• Nominate 7 other Kreativ Bloggers.
• Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
• Leave a comment on which of the blogs to let them know they have been nominated.

7 things about me that you may find interesting

1. I am a pack-rat but don't always have time to really get organized, so I have lots of stacks of papers and things. I make it a point to keep them out of sight for the most part (in closets, boxes, and drawers), because dh will throw away anything left out (don't get me started on the things he has thrown away because it "looked like trash")

2. I have enjoyed photography since I was a teenager, but am really getting into it since I got my cool new camera a few months ago :)

3. I stopped taking quite as many pictures during holidays though because I started to realize I was spending more time capturing the events than participating in them and missing out on a lot of the fun.

4. It has taken me 2 weeks to fill out 4 questionnaires that the school sent home for Cuddlebug and Bearhug (2 each, part of updating their evaluations).

5. Those questionnaires drive me nuts because I spend way too much time overthinking the nuanced differences between answering "never," "sometimes," "often," or "always." What if it's really rare but it's not quite "never"? Or where do you draw the line between "sometimes" and "often"? ugh.

5. Speaking of forms, sometimes I wonder if people think it's weird when they see 3 boxes checked in the "ethnicity" question. I'm 1/2 Hispanic and dh is 1/4 Asian (Japanese), which makes the boys 1/4 Hispanic, 1/8 Asian, and 5/8 Caucasian. I always feel like if I don't check all 3 boxes I'm somehow denying part of their heritage, so I do.

6. I LOVE angel food cake :). And red velvet cake, yummeh. Ok, I love pretty much any kind of cake :P

7. I found out the hard way when I went to college that when it snows all the time it's no big deal and nothing closes. What good is snow without snow days? I was glad to move back to warmer regions :).

And I actually wrote this post a couple of weeks ago and had to save it for later to come back and make a list of 7 blogs to pass the award along to... but here we are two weeks later and I really haven't had time to do that yet so in the interest of getting this posted sometime before Halloween I decided to open it up for whoever among my readers would like to participate. If you do, please leave your link in the comments, I'd love to read your 7 things and get to know you a little better!
