Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

I am incredibly grateful to Mayra of Ponder Wonders for nominating me for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award. Yay Mayra!

What is the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award!?

The award is passed on from sister blogger to sister blogger and there are 4 simple conditions to meet when accepting the award. And these are...

1) You have to thank the person who gave it to you.
2) You have to post 7 things about yourself.
3) You have to nominate 7 others and let them know they have been nominated.
4) You have to include the award logo on your post.

Soooo, here we go.

Seven Things About Me:

1. Fall is my favorite season. I love everything about it... the change of weather, the falling leaves, the smell of pumpkin and spices, Thanksgiving, etc.

2. I am the only female in a house full of boys. I have: a hubby, a 16 year old, a 12 year old, and a 7 year old.

3. I am infatuated with John Cusack.

4. I respect my mother tremendously. She has been through so much and experienced so many things in her life and has only come out stronger. This woman is my rock.

5. I had a pin up style wedding. Pin up dresses, makeup, hair, a 1955 Chevy, the whole shibang!

6. I have made a lot of changes in my life very recently. I have chosen to be positive and allow only positive people into my close circle. It's been a long journey but one that was very worth the trials.

7. I am a "newbie" blogger. I just started blogging in April and didn't start blogging on a regular basis until August. I LOVE it and LOVE the wonderful people that I have met along the way!

My Nominees:

1. Kellie @ Delightfully Ludicrous
2. Debra @ She Who Seeks
3. Renee @ Antiquarian Miss
4. A Vapid Vixen
5. Bles-Id
6. A Bench With a View
7. Mary @ Marydotdandy

I feel so blessed to know all of you and to have been nominated for this award (Thanks again Mayra). I hope that you all have a wonderful week!

  5. How fun is this?! I love fall too, and I adore my mom the same way. Sometimes I wonder how she contains all that awesomeness. :) Thanks for the follow. I'm your newest follower. :)


  6. Congrats on your award, Sarah! I go tour message about following on my GFC but for some reason your name is not showing up there--do you mind checking again for me and letting me know? I couldn't find it on today's followers. Thanks!

  7. Hi, thanks for the comment. I don't see you on my followers list either...maybe GFC was being glitchy :/ I'm the only female in a household of males as well. My sons are 2 and (almost) 5 months.

    1. I checked it and fixed it... something weird was goin on last night! :-)

  8. Congrats on your award! I love John Cusack too! :)
    Thanks for linking up to the Mom's Mingle hop! Following you via GFC!

  9. I too have a house full of men, two boys and a hubby, but my Boston terrier, Patches, she's all female and while I say she's mine. She has all the men wrapped around her little paw. Diva, all the way.

    Congrat's on the award, well deserved!

  10. I enjoyed learning about you and appreciate you stopping by my blog too!! Your pinup wedding sounds awesome!!

  11. Congrats, Sarah! And thank you for passing the award on to me! I will feature it in a blog post in early November -- once all my Halloween/Samhain hoopla is over.

  12. New follower, following you back! Enjoying your blog!

  13. Congrats on the award and thank you for passing it on to me. John Cusack is soooo adorable! I do agree with just surrounding yourself with positive people; it does help us to feel better about things when surrounded by positivity rather than negativity.

    Thanks again :)


  14. Hi Sarah! Following you back now! Thanks so much for sharing!!

  15. Hi,

    Thanks for follwoing me! I am following you now too. Did you know you are a no reply commenter. Make sense? If you update your blogger account you'll get many more responses because people will be able to reply to your comments directly. Here is a link to show you how to do it.

    Let me know if you need help! Have a great week.

    1. Hey Amanda!! Thank you for the heads up... I thought I had that fixed. Can you check it now for me?
