15 Blogs I Love Right Now, 7 Random Things About Me, & 1 Little Award

by Charise Rohm Nulsen

I’m honored to have won the Stylish Blogger Award from Kathy Morelli of  Marriage, Motherhood & Mental Health.
Thank you, Kathy!


This is a pay it forward award.
There are 4 duties to perform to receive this award:

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award  

2. Share 7 things about yourself:

1. I did Hypnobabies to prepare for my baby’s birth.
2. We love to travel and Baby is getting an early start. He’ll visit his 7th state in February when he is 8 months old.
3. I’ve lived in NYC, Boston, Cambridge, and San Francisco. Now, we’re surrounded by woods. :-) 
4. My husband and I were in the same social circle in the same class at the same college, but we didn’t meet each other until a random occurrence 7 years after graduating college.

5. My name is the combination of both of my parents names. Our son’s name is a combination of our names. If you know our names, you can figure it out. ;-)

6. I’m a vegetarian, but I love the smell of barbecue.
7. When we first started dating, my husband bought me a guitar. Except I missed the fact that he bought it for me. I thought he was just lending me his guitar until I figured it out the next day. (At least now when I do things like this, I can blame it on mommy brain!)

3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers.

(I’m just going to award 15 blogs that I really like and encourage you to check them out. :-)

I love the smell of BBQ too! I say that every time we go to Sam’s “It smells delicious, but I know it’s a lie (Sonny’s is next door).
LOL

Thank you!
I have a similar #4! My hubby and I hung out with the same people at High School But I never met him till a few months after graduation. That is probably a good thing. My hubby was a bit of a a nerd :) And we have been happily together since 1995!

Hubby and I enrolled on the same college but never met their. We only met when he was already working and only then find out we enrolled on the same college. My two sons name was after him but with some appendage so it won’t confuse who is who. LOL. I have stop working to attend to my two boys needs and at the same time working online.

Your welcome! I just copied the entire post from an awarding blog and added it into the “visual” posting area rather than the “html” posting area and the award picture copied just fine. So if you just copy my whole post, it should transfer.

P.S. Your trick for transferring GFC worked… and then it stopped working! Banging my head against a wall trying to get GFC to pick up the feed from my past several posts. Sigh…
