Seven things about me

1. I recently started getting my hair cut... I had gone several years without, and was tired of having cave girl hair, so I chopped it all off... the only problem is that I remember why I grew it out... it grows SO fast!  Luckily I found a great place to get it cut inexpensively... watch for my review, coming soon :)

2. I am actively seeking sponsors and giveaways for this blog... I have several events coming up and would love to feature Esty artists and fellow bloggers work if you want to do giveaways!

3. I am awake at 3 am again... thanks Ach baby for the heartburn/reflux... 
you'd better have a head full of hair when I meet you :)

4. I am worried about how Liam will handle me being in hospital for 2 days with his new brother...
 it's been a long time since I was away from him that long.

5. My postal worker must be either thanking goodness that I'm keeping her employed or cursing me a blue streak, because she filled my mailbox and TWO parcel compartments with all the goodies I have to review for AB in the next few months yesterday :)

6. I have a wonderful and generous hubby who is putting up with a whole lot from me... I may not be PMS'ing for 9 months, but this pregnancy has had its challenges...and he's been a great sport

7. Speaking of hubby, he's not really big into blog awards and all that stuff... but I want to give him a shout out... in the midst of the chaos I've created and his demanding job... he's started blogging at (please visit and give him some bloggy love)

received from He is my Beloved

The rules...
1. Accept the award. Post it on your blog with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.

2. Pay it forward to 15 other bloggers that you have newly discovered.

3. Contact those blog owners and let them know they've been chosen.

Now, if I add all of that up, I can give blog awards to 37 people... but I'm going to be a bad bloggy friend and end the line here this week... It's 3:21 am and the tums have finally taken the edge off my heart burn... 
so I'm heading back to bed right now...
If you'd like to be the recipient of one or all of these awards, just leave me a comment and I will happily link to you in this post when I get some time later this morning :)

Thanks again to Kat from Kat's Confessions, Tisha from Inspired Moments and Mel from He's My Beloved for sharing these award with me
