More Awards!

Wow! I got my second and third blog awards today! How excited am I?! Thank you so much to Stephanie over at Celebrate First Grade for The Versatile Blogger award and Noelle at The Friz in First Grade who awarded me with both the Versatile Blogger award and the One Lovely Blog Award! I’m truly honored!

If I have passed the award along to you...
Here are the seven rules to follow when receiving this award:
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Include a link to their blog.
3. Include the award image in your post.
4. Give 7 random facts about yourself.
5. Nominate 15(ish) other bloggers for the award.
6. When nominating, include a link to their blog.
7. Let other bloggers know they've been nominated.

My 7 Random Facts:
1. I live in Texas now, but I’m originally from Vermont and would love to move back home some day!
2. I have been with my husband for over 20 years (married for 14 years).
3. We have 2 children, a son who is 5 and a daughter who is 8.
4. All of our middle names begin with Ray. My husband and son are Ray and Raymond, after my husband’s grandfather. My daughter and I are both Rayna after my grandmother. It’s a very special thing for our family and makes us feel connected to two people who meant a lot to both of us.
5. I love to stamp and scrapbook, but rarely find the time to do so!
6. I am addicted to Pinterest and Facebook. Pinterest because it gives me great ideas and Facebook because it helps me feel like I’m still a part of so many lives, even if I don’t live close by!
7. I am a little bit (although close friends and family might argue A LOT!) OCD about staying organized and label all of my containers and totes! I love clear containers because I can label them from the inside!
