Our Five Ring Circus: Awards

Saturday, November 6, 2010


I'm really hoping to get rid of this cold over the weekend, so I scrapped all my weekend plans. Grant is currently at our friend's party, and I'm bummed that I had to miss it. I had a PJ night instead!

It's 10:41 PM, and the kids are still awake. My goal is to keep them up as late as possible, so they don't wake up too early. I've done this every year to prepare for the time change, and it works well!

I was given two awards recently (well, one not so recently!), and I figured it was time to pass them on!

Marissa, from Making Memories with the McClellen Family passed on the Blog With Substance award to me. Thanks, Marissa! I love your blog! I'm so sorry it took me two months to post this!

I'm supposed to use 5 words to sum up my blogging experience/philosophy:

1. Fun
2. Friendship
3. Memories
4. Learning
5. Growing

I'm giving this award to 5 bloggers:

Kaci from Ellyphant
Erin at The Schuler Family
Ashley at Sweet Serendipity
Ginger at The Neff Family
Candice at Wolf's on Safari

Thanks again, Marissa!!!

Rule #1: Thank the person who gave you your award

Candice, at Wolf's On Safari, gave me the Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you, Candice! Stop by to check out her awesome blog, and her adorable son!

Rule #2: Share seven things about yourself.

I just did an about me post this week, but I'm going to attempt 7 more facts.

1. I'm afraid of the dark.

2. I hate flying. I always worry that the plane will crash. I know that "they" say that you are more likely to die in a car crash than a plane crash, but here's the reality: It's highly unlikely that I will survive a plane crash. I have a MUCH better chance of surviving a car crash.

3. I've traveled to Canada and Mexico, but never overseas.

4. I love the beach, but I don't like swimming in the ocean. The Caribbean is the exception. I can see my feet!

5. I don't like alcohol, so I rarely drink.

6. I cook dinner for my family almost every day, but I really don't enjoy it. It's too time consuming, and I hate cleaning up the mess. We rarely eat out or get takeout.

7. I'm almost always cold, even in the summer. Central air conditioning and I don't mix.

Rule #3: Pass the award onto 7 bloggers who you think are fantastic!

Heather at Oswald Cuties
Mama4real at I'm a Real Life Mom
Marissa at Making Memories with the McClellen Family
Annie at Our Little Family
Lindsay at Parents to a Princess
Paige at Mommy & Charli
Marice at Life Can't Wait

Thank you for the awards! I wish I could pass them on to everyone!

It's now 11:25 and my kids are ready for bed. Here's hoping they sleep in, and adjust quickly to the time change. And here's hoping that my weekend of rest sends this cold away for good!

  6. Thanks so much! I'll try not to wait 2 months to pass it on! LOL
    Good luck with the time change. It is always hardest on the kiddos. No time changin' here in AZ!

  7. lOh! Thanks so much for thinking of me!

    I'll try to blog it tonight, after I make a Target run for household needs (and maybe some Christmas stuff because I just can't help myself) tonight!

    I hope you are feeling better soon and that the kids slept past the hour. I skipped afternoon naps yesterday for that exact purpose and it worked like a charm!

  8. Awww, thanks for thinking of me Stef.
