Inspiration Sunday

I received a gift earlier this week.

From Meena Rose and Claudsy of the Two Voices, One Song blog.

No package, no bows, but a gift nevertheless.

An award!

The Inspiring Blogger Award.

So instead of my usual inspirational quote today, I'm just going to fulfill the requirements of the award, which simply involves posting the award graphic, listing a few (seven, to be exact) things about myself, and passing on the nomination to other (15, if you're counting) inspirational bloggers.

So without further ado....

7 Things About Me I Probably Could Have Kept To Myself

1) I could eat an entire box of Thin Mints in one sitting if I had no inner voice telling me better.
2) I grow hair on my big toes. I have to keep that mess in check during flip-flop season. Gross.
3) I think I may have inadvertantly eaten horse whilst in Kazakhstan.
4) I have wiped gooey green snot off the lip of my toddler with my bare hands.
5) I don't currently know where my iron is.
6) And I don't care.
7) I have cleaned the poop of 13 species of mammals, five species of birds, plus a few fish, crustaceans, reptiles and amphibians. And I've never even worked in a zoo.

15 Awesome Folks I Would Like To Pass This Award On To
(in no particular order)

1) Laura of Heavenly Homemakers
2) Dee of Kate's Wish
3) Stevie of Ruffled Feathers and Spilled Milk
4) Denise of Fostering a Blessing
5) Kimberly of Sew Encouraging
6) "Garden Goat" of Garden Goat Quote
7) Mary of Thankful for Hope
8) Emily of Our Himpossible Journey
9) Meg of Almost
10)Donna of Our Forest Haven
11)"Mama Hen" of Long Days, Short Years
12)Kelsie of Our Country Home
13)Marisa of Backyard Farming
14)Lissie of Giggles and Screams
15)Taryn of Life With Quads

Keep inspiring, guys!
And thanks so much, Meena and Claudsy!

  2. Hi,
    Following you from Naptime Review. By the way, I too grow a few hairs on my big toes, sooo weird.

    What a beautiful family, and yes you are so outnumbered!
    xoxo tiffani

  3. Of, I forgot to mention... I love to trade buttons if you are interested.


  4. Congratulations on your award! I'm curious what the mammals were, but I'll just leave that to the imagination (which is running wild, after spending the day with 26 pre-k kids...)I just KNOW a unicorn is one of them :)

  5. Eva, Tiffani, and Nikki, so glad you stopped by! Thanks for the congrats. As for the mammals, I hate to disappoint, but no unicorns. I'll keep you guessing...

  6. I hear ya on #2, 3, and 7! Except I wasn't in Kazahkstan, but in a very seedy, pseudo McDonalds in Mexico.

    Enjoyed this! Thanks for stopping by my blog and the nice comments!
