Versatile Blogger Award!

I was SO excited to come back from vacation to see this fun award awaiting me!

A big thank you to Kim from Little Rays of Sunshine for TOT-AL-LY making my day! Not gonna lie-I even did the happy dance! Here are the rules for receiving this award:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.
2. Tell seven things about yourself.
3. Pay it forward and award the Versatile Blogger to 15 recently discovered new bloggers.
4. Contact everyone and let them know they've been awarded!

1. BIG, BIG, BIG thanks to Kim for showing me some blog love!!! Just starting out as a new blogger can be kinda overwhelming and intimidating and she has been so kind to comment on several of my posts and even featured me on her blog a couple weeks ago! She blogs about life as a momma, yummy yummy treats and sweet baby crafts so make sure to check her out now! Like I'll even sit here and wait for you to go give her some love. Go ahead...just don't forget to come back! :)

2. Well just in case you don't know enough about me from the auto-biography in my About Me tab above here are 7 more things!
  • I'm the oldest of 5 children (4 girls, 1 boy) and have the BOSSY genes to prove it. My mom would always tell me growing up, "Angela, I AM the mother. YOU are the child. One day when you're a mom you can make all the decisions and decide how to raise your own family." Welp, that day is here and I sure wish my mom was the one making all the decisions again. This mom thing is hard! ha ha!
  • I grew up in Houston, TX and am the proudest TEXAN there is! I lived in the same house from kindergarten through my senior year of high school when I moved to Provo, UT to go to BYU. I've now lived in UT for the past 10 years so I guess this is "home" now, but if anyone ever asks where I'm from it's Texas all the way!
  • I was a CHEERLEADER in high-school and still have a little of the cheerleader stereotype running through my veins as a few of my *fondest* friends like to continuously point out. I guess it's true that you can take the girl out of the blonde, but you can never take the blonde out of the girl. (And the fact that it just took me five minutes to figure out if that was the right way to say it sorta proves my point :) )
  • I met Mr. SWEET LOVE (aka my husband-who has no idea this is his blog name so let's keep that between us :) ) while working at a super nerdy electronic store Radioshack. We worked at different locations but our managers set us up to go to a corporate training meeting together that was about an hour away. It was love at first sight for him (I'm sure) but it took me months a little while to come to the same conclusion. Which brings me to my next point...
  • I told Mr. Sweet Love no the first time he asked me to MARRY him. Yep, that's right...poor guy right?! (first and pretty much only time I've seen him cry :( ) Don't worry, I didn't make him wait too long to ask me again! ha ha! And now we've been married almost 7 years and have 2 kids so it's all water under the bridge anyway right?!
  • I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My faith is what sustains me through life's trials and brings hope, happiness and gratitude into my life everyday! I know that I am a CHILD OF GOD, that He knows and loves me personally and has a plan for me. I am so thankful for this light in my life in what can, at times, be a dark and confusing world!
  • I don't cook or bake. Hate them both. However let's not get confused on this point and think I don't like to EAT because my friends that is NOT a problem. I can devour a Beto's Burrito (like insanely large burrito's for those of you who do not have the pleasure of living in UT) in less than 10 min, can pound down a super-size value meal like it aint no thang, and must have mint cookies and cream ice-cream in my freezer at all times. (when I was nursing my 2nd she had an allergy to milk and that seriously about killed people just stayed outta my way cause I was crazy. Not so sure, looking back, that that was beneficial for me or baby. But we're all loving dairy by the gallons here now so it's all good! :) )
