7 Facts About Me...

I am very excited because Carolina over at Mama Instincts nominated me to share 7 facts about myself.  She has a great blog about natural mommyhood:). It was really fun to read her facts and felt honored when she nominated me, especially when she shared my blog's description.  Lately I have been wondering, "do my readers know what this is really all about."  when I read her description of my blog I was excited to see that she did, and hopefully others do too.  


Anyways, on to my 7 facts and 7 nominees :)
________________

Fact 1

I am a Christ Follower.  God has truly changed my life and I hope to share that with everyone I meet.  Not in a "I will hit you over the head with my Bible" way, but in love and actions.


Fact 2

I am a morning person through and through. And when I say morning person, I mean 3-4 am, some people are still up at night, morning person.  I just get better work done in the morning.   I used to deny it, but now I embrace it.  


Fact 3

I have trouble finding balance.  Aka, I think I can do it all.  But alas, there are only so many hours in the day and at some point you not only have to have priorities, but you have to drop some things.  Just because some thing is a "good thing" does not mean you are called to do it!


Fact 4

Our family has lived in 5 places in our first 5 1/2 years of marriage! We have been here there and everywhere.  We will be moving again soon, hopefully before we enter year number 6.  Guess we are averaging out at about a home a year.


Fact 5

I am way "crunchier" a mom than I ever thought I would be.  Maybe it started with the cloth diapers or the natural birth.  We bed shared for quite a while.  My daughter is almost 18 months old and still nurses.  I am not saying everyone should be like me… there is already way to much judgement and drama in the mama world and every family is different.  I am just saying I surprised myself.  


Fact 6

I love to eat…. just about anything.  Sweets, seafood, Mexican, BBQ, I just love food!


Fact 7

I like to run, but currently have not been finding the time.  I need to work on that!

_______

And my nominees, in no particular order :) 

Living in the Promise
  A working mom friend with a sweet little family that includes her sone who is just under one.  She talks all things faith, family and is just a really open blogger :)


She Lives Free
I am not sure how we originally connected, but this blogging friend is all about making a difference.  Her post and life share the importance living life to make an impact.  She has a great link up called Make a Difference Monday.


Our Joy... His Glory
Mom to three precious girls and the original creator of the What You Wish Wednesday link up.  She is talented, creative and passionate.


Fairy Tale Glamorous 
Sweet new-to-blogging friend with two littles, and still finds the time to share very useful things from creative ideas to teach the kiddos, to how to pack a diaper bag.

Nikkis' Nacs
Nikki is also a co-host of WYWW.  And all I can say is every week I see her meal pal, I just want to go eat at her house!

Simply Sweet Melissa
Melissa is a currently engaged blogging friend that I can follow along for simple style and life advise!  Also a What Wish Wednesday co-host! 

A+ Life 
Courtney shares fun and clever things while also being vulnerable and real about her life.  I always learn a little something there!

Okay… it is y'all turn.  Give a shout out to the person that nominated you (aka me:)), share 7 facts and nominate 7 people!
