My First Blogger Award!

Wow! I got my first blog award from another blogging mommy, Ingenue Mom! Thank you Cameron! It is exciting to think that others are enjoying the things I write about, and I am excited to read what other mommy's blog about as well!

To officially accept the award, as I understand, I have to share 7 things about myself you may not know...
1. I complusively buy Disney movies! I just can't get enough! My mom never really bought us movies as a kid, but my grandma would spoil us with the occasional Disney flick. So I decided long ago I would collect as many as possible for my own children to watch! Even ones I am not crazy about!!
2. I love to bake, but not cook! Whipping up a dessert makes me feel warm and cozy inside, but ask me to make you some eggs and I will drag my feet on the long walk to the kitchen!
3. You might have assumed from #2, but I have the biggest sweet tooth ever! Seriously, you may think you have it bad, but when my husband isn't home, I sometimes eat ice cream for lunch (after I have sent my daughter to play in her room so she doesn't get the same idea)!!
4. My husband insists I am the only person on the planet whose toenails curve out instead of inward. It drives him crazy because when my toenails are long and pretty his legs get scratched up in bed!
5. I love baby names. I constantly am searching for my next favorite baby name. We do hope to have one more someday and so far that baby is looking to have about fifty names if I were to use all my favorites!
6. One of my favorite channels is Food Network. Though I always swore I would never get into all those reality shows, I LOVE "Worst Cooks in America" and "The Next Food Network Star".
7. I am crazy about children's parties! I could plan one for my kids every month and be a very happy woman, despite the pressure that sometimes follows them. I love to go all out and see the looks on the kids faces! I only wish my children's 2 birthdays were spread out in the year so I could always be planning and thinking of one, instead of 2 in a row then another 10 months to go before another party!

And now it is my privilege to pass this award along. I guess I am supposed to give it to 5 other bloggers, but I haven't regularly been reading even that many yet because I am so new to the blogging world! So I will just give it to the ones I have been enjoying the most lately... The Adventures of Motherhood, Of Such is the Kingdom, and Living to Tell the Story


  1. I LOVED picking out baby names too! OH and I love ice-cream anytime of the day too! Its funny because I could not cook when we got married almost 10 years ago. I have learned to love to cook and I try new recipes all the time. My hubby lets me know if it is a keeper or not. =-) I love baking too though I am trying to watch the health issue so I have really enjoyed making my Honey Oatmeal bread...yummy!
    I do read your blogs...much of the time. I just dont comment like I should. I think it is out of laziness. I enjoy reading them though.
    Good job Crystal!

  2. My best friend is obsessed with baby names!! She has several baby name books & she is constantly making lists with first & middle names. Her oldest daughter turned 5 right before my daughter was born, so my friend has been waiting a long time for me to have a baby! She was really excited when I finally got to go through baby names with her. It's definitely really fun to pick them out!!

  3. Congratulations on your very first blogging award! And I'm very honored that you would pass it on to me. Thank you so much.

    I laughed at you loving baking but not cooking. I am the exact opposite! Love to cook, drag my feet to bake. And I love the Food Network too!

  4. Thanks so much for the award! It's such an honor! Thanks also for reading Of Such is the Kingdom!

  5. Thank you Crystal! I've been traveling again this weekend. I've got to stop having so much fun!

    I enjoyed reading your 7 things. I like the Next Food Network Star too!


I enjoy hearing what you think about this!
Thank you so much for sharing!
