Liebster Award

with all the new peeps around here, i've been thinking about doing a few get to know you type posts. i mentioned doing an intro to my fam, and i will prob still do that soon.
google images...who knows if this is really the right graphic?!?
in the meantime, Melanie over at Van Wynsberg Nest nominated me for the Liebster Award. i've seen it going around blogland a little, and i am completely flattered. i did a quick search and found this post with details. thanks Melanie!

  1. Oh yay!! Glad you were able to post this. :)

    That's so awesome that you run marathons! I love to run, but haven't gotten that far. Maybe someday!
    Also, did you end up liking the choice the bachelor made at the end of the show? I wasn't watching it, but I know who he picked, and an always curious if people agree with the choice. ;)

  2. Marathon runner? Now that takes some mad skills. That's awesome! You are so sweet to nominate me. I feel so lame I haven't even looked at my blog in over a week. Work has been busy and every day I go back and forth- to blog...not to blog. Guess I just can't get into the rhytyhm quite yet. Are you going to the next round table discussion?? I hope to go again- my husband may be having surgery that day but I would love to see you ladies again!

  3. Thank you, thank you again for the nomination. I loved participating. Here is my post.
