One Lovely Blog and Very Inspiring Blogger Award

I'm so touched and inspired by all the support my blog has recieved lately!  Pageviews are increasing and people are liking the From Overwhelmed To Organized Facebook page.  Many people are interacting on the blog and on Facebook too which is so much fun. 

And, on top of all that, I'm so honoured that I recently received another award!  This one is called the One Lovely Blog and Very Inspiring Blogger Award and I was awarded it by Myric at Petites Passions.  I love all her creative ideas so it's really exciting to be given this award by her.   Thank you so much Myric!

I was curious if this was originally 2 separate awards since it seems like 2 titles and there are 2 pictures.  But, I went back many recipients, and as far back as I went, it was 1 award with 2 names and pictures.  Interesting! 

Anyway, as usual, there are "rules" for this award and here they are:

Thank the person who nominated you and link back to them in your post.
Share 7 things about yourself.
Nominate 15 bloggers you admire.
Leave a comment on each of their blogs letting them know they've been nominated.

I had to put my thinking cap on to come up with 7 more unique things to say about myself but here's what I came up with :)

1.  I love 80's music.
2.  I went to the University of Waterloo in a co-op teaching program.
3.  I play piano (well, I used to play may be more accurate - I am teaching my kids a bit now but neither of them is that impressed with the practicing part).
4.  I'm a reality TV junkie (currently enjoying my summer favourites Bachelorete, Hell's Kitchen, and Big Brother).
5.  I am not a morning person (my brain just wakes up and functions better at night!) but I've been getting up early with my hubby the last few weeks and am enjoying the quiet that exists in our house in the early mornings after he leaves for work.
6.  I am in the process of trying to eat healthier and have lost 19 lbs in the last 6 months.
7.  I love ice cream (which in the summer makes it hard to keep up with #6!).

OK, now on to giving this award to 15 bloggers.  I've already given awards to 15 bloggers lately, so at first I was a little overwhelmed at the thought of finding 15 more bloggers to award this to.  I wasn't even sure I followed 30 blogs!  But, then I realized I was going to get to spend more time exploring blogs and that's super fun!  And, I get to make 15 more bloggers' days by giving them this award :)  So, it's taken me a little while to decide on my 15 bloggers and write this post but I'm sure no one will mind!  {Plus, it felt like all I was doing was writing about awards so I wanted to finish a few organizing posts first :)}

Here's my list (in no particular order):

My Life's A Treasure
Simply Done Wright
Raising Bean
Full Circle Creations
Goodbye, House. Hello, Home!
In The Old Road
Sunny Side Up
The Terpblog
It's Not Just About The Recipe
Nutmeg Place
Domestic Randomness

Innes Family v.3.0
Joyful Homemaking

Congratulations to all these bloggers!  I love reading each of your blogs and being inspired by all your creative ideas so you deserve this award!

Thanks again Myric for awarding it to me :)

Happy organizing!
