Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Every couple of months a blogger award seems to circulate around the web, the most recent one being the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.  I’ve read posts from several bloggers who were nominated for this award.  Many thanks to Erika from MCM Mama Runs and Jessie from It’s A Messy Life for nominating me.  I’m very flattered!

So what am I supposed to do now?  Pass along the blog love of course!

  • Thank and link to the person who nominated you
  • List the rules and display the award
  • Share seven facts about yourself
  • Nominate 15 other amazing blogs and comment on their posts to let them know they have been nominated

The hard part first – seven facts about myself.  Those of you who have been around for awhile already know quite a bit about me, so if you already know some of this, my apologies!

1.  My favorite color is blue.

2.  Summer is my favorite season of the year.  If I could live outside lounging at the pool or on the beach everyday, I would.


3.  I was born on Easter Sunday.  The next time that my birthday will fall on Easter isn’t until 2081!

4.  If I weren’t a teacher, I’d want to be a professional photographer.  I absolutely love taking pictures and using our real cameras, especially our SLR camera.


I took lots of scenic photos during our honeymoon in Hawaii

5.  Prior to getting married I’d only been to Disney World once, when I was six years old, and never to Disneyland.  When Preston first told me how many times his family had been to Disney, my jaw dropped.  Since we got married three years ago, we’ve been to Disney World three times and Disneyland once.  My husband has officially turned me into a fully crazed Disney fan.

We joined my in-laws on a trip to Disney World a month after we got married

6.  I’m always searching for the best deal possible.  I hate buying or booking something and later finding out that I could have saved even more money.  (And yes, I do clip coupons, but I’m not an extreme couponer.)

7.  Baseball is my favorite professional sport to watch.


And now for my 15 nominees.  I hope you find these bloggers as inspiring as I do!

1.  Sue from This Mama Runs for Cupcakes
2.  Sarah from Sparkly Runner
3.  Mindy from Road Runner Girl
4.  Kat from Katrina Elle
5.  Pam and Christine from We Run Disney
6.  Meranda and Lacey from Fairytales and Fitness
7.  Kristen from Run Away with Me
8.  Denise from Healthy Disney Family
9.  Lauren from Run Salt Run
10.  Cyanne from Run Stretch Go
11.  Courtney from Eat Pray Run DC
12.  Cynthia from You Signed Up For WHAT?!
13.  Mar from Mar On The Run
14.  Kimberley from Maker Mother Marathon Runner
15.  Jennifer from Run Jenny Run

  1. Thanks for giving our blog a shout out! We follow most of the blogs you mentioned as well. My favorite color is blue too. And I also like watching baseball over other sports.

  2. I love that your hubby turned you into a Disney fan!!! And thanks so much for the nomination!!! 🙂

  3. I’m friends with Katrina too!! Another similarity. 🙂

    Yay for the color blue and loving summer! I really miss beaches. It still feels weird to be landlocked!

    Thank you so much for this lovely award, friend!
    I love all your facts. I used to go to Disney all the time as a kid and my husband has never been. His first time will be in January when we go down for marathon weekend. I wouldn’t say I’m the world’s biggest Disney nut or anything, but I’m hoping to get him more into it. Betty loves her some Disney though! 🙂 You and your hubs are so cute in the ears!

    I love watching baseball too!! In the summer it makes me so happy that it’s on TV most nights.

  6. The pic of you and Preston with wedding ears is so adorable! I’m like you with the couponing and deals – nothing extreme but I never pay full price unless I have to – saves money for the race fees, lol. Thank you so much for nominating me for the award, Kathryn 🙂

  7. Jennifer says:

    Thanks Kathryn 🙂 Your blog inspires me as well! Can’t believe it will be 2081 until Easter lineup with your birthday again!

  8. I saw this the other morning when I quickly read your post so I’m sorry I didn’t respond sooner. Thank you for nominating us – so sweet!!
    I am totally a deal seeker too. I have a nerdy coupon folder thingie that I always have in my purse. 🙂

    Thanks for the shout out! I’m with you on #6. Before I buy anything I research it online so I can find the cheapest price!
