Beautiful Blog Award


I feel so honored that Ashley from Sommer Family blog nominated me for the beautiful Blog award!! Thank you Ashley, for reading my blog and also for thinking of me for this award! While I normally don't do a lot of blogging except for special announcements and previews I thought this would be kind of fun to do!

So here is part of the award that I thought might be kind of fun to do...

1. Thank and link the person who gave you this award

2. Pass this award on to 5 blogs that you think are fantastic

3. contact blogs and let them know they've won

4. state 7 interesting things about yourself

Here are 7 interesting things about me...

1.) I have a HUGE family. I don't know that I have ever found anyone that has a bigger family than I do. My mom is one of 13 brothers and sisters, all are married and have at least two kids but most have 3 or more. So in total I think (family members don't be upset if I'm wrong) that I have like 60 1st cousins and that doesn't include any of their spouses or children... Get togethers are INSANE, but normally pretty fun.

2.) I LOVE to decorate my house, but I get ALMOST done and then I can't finish it. It's like I get some kind of brain block and can't finish my vision. It drives me crazy but in every room in my house there is something that I feel needs finished but I just can't do it...

3.) I didn't always want to be a photographer. My dream even as a little girl was to be a Realtor. I have always loved photography but never felt like I was good enough to charge people to take their photos. When I was 24 I got my Real Estate License and honestly hated it. I liked that marketing part of it but the rest not so much. (well besides getting to look at the inside of peoples houses) So I did it for a year and decided it wasn't for me!?

4.) I can stick my WHOLE fist in my mouth :) Don't ask me how I figured out I could do that because I have NO clue, but it's kinda freaky!

5.) We are the A family. My husband is Andrew, I'm Abby, my daughter is Alivia and our dog is Adler. Our little guy that is due in June will be the odd ball because we didn't try and have all A names it just happened. We are not planning to keep the A's going..

6.) Wow this is harder than I thought! ummm... Shopping is my downfall. I LOVE to shop. Since my husband and I got married I have been so much better but now if I see something cute for my kids, it's almost impossible for me NOT to buy it! I would say its a good thing I'm having a boy but so far I have been finding that little boy stuff can be pretty fun too!

7.) If my husband would go, I would move to a warm state (Florida) tomorrow. I HATE being cold. I don't ever really think snow is pretty, the wind, just the whole thing. I think 70 is chilly and really prefer 90+! My husband however loves the seasons and is always hot and really doesn't like it when it is over 70.. So in Indiana we will stay. But I'm praying as he gets older he gets colder and when our kids are grown we can pack up and at least head south for the winter!?

There you go 7 things about me! Not sure how interesting but that's all I've got folks!

Here are 5 blogs that I think are beautiful!
