beautiful blogger

I was nominated for a blog reward! Wooo, Thank you Emily! Emily nominated me for a 'beautiful blogger award'. It was a very nice surprise. In fact, it kind of made my day :). Emily is awesome and if you haven't seent her blog, last train to pooksville, what is wrong with you??! Emily is a first time mom and a very honest and relatable writer. She has a beautiful family and the most gorgeous and talented baby, Poppy. I found her blog months and months ago and have been a dedicated follower since. I'm almost positive once you check it out, you will be too. Did I mention that Emily is crafty? Not just hot-glue and glitter. She makes some pretty awesome baby clothes, bibs, etc...I'm still waiting for her to tell us that she has her etsy shop up and running. I will be buying Liv a pair of sweater pants...possibly a hat to match :). Emily is super nice and welcoming to new bloggers, so go check out her site!

With this award I'm supposed to do the following:
1. Thank the person who nominated me for the award.
2. Copy the award & place it on my blog.
3. Link the person who nominated me for this award.
4. Share 7 interesting things about myself.
5. Nominate 7 other beautiful bloggers.

So, 7 interesting things about myself...I will try not to run out of ideas before I hit 7.

- I have an identical twin sister, Dani. Maybe everyone knows this, but I still consider it interesting :). She's my best friend, and no we don't have that weird twin thing where If you hit me she'll feel it. But we are really close and talk multiple times during the day on Skype.

-My boyfriend's name is Patrick in the American Psycho Patrick Bateman. We met in college and have been together for 6+ years.

-Liv is half canadian, due to the fact that her father is from Calgary, Alberta. So I'll have a dual-citizen daughter as soon as I get my butt into gear and finish her paperwork.

-I used to be a really big runner. I ran a few marathons and 10k races in my prime. Unfortunately, pregnancy wasn't running friendly for me and I don't know how far I could make it now. I am hoping to start running again with Liv in her jogger when the weather is nice.

-I have a really mischevious Chihuahua named Lily. She can sit, shake, speak, roll over, and play dead...but she'll will not come when I call her. I'm not sure what that says about my training skills but I'm definitley happy I had a dog before I had a baby!

-When I was a little girl I wanted to name my first daughter January. My only fear at the time was that people would call her Jan, as in Jan Brady...and who wanted to be a Jan when it was so much cooler to be a Marsha.

-I have a sick obsession with America's Next Top Model. I don't know if anyone watched the Miss U.S.A. Pageant, but Clinton Kelly admitted that his guilty pleasure was ANTM and seriously he nailed it on the head. It doesn't matter how many times I've seen each season, if a marathon is on tv, I'm watching it. Its a waste of time, but I can't help myself (its on tv right now:)

Here are 7 blogs that I follow ritually. They are trying, expecting or have babies. Some of them I followed throughout their pregnancy and have babies very close to age around Liv. Some of them are personal friends of mine and some are internet friends. All of them have awesome blogs and do a great job, so check them out because I would consider them beautiful bloggers :).


  1. Ugh, Desi!! I don't even know if 7 people read my blog!? Haha, thanks though :) Anyway, just catching up on your updates and curious if Liv has been sleeping any better? We went through this a few weeks ago, being up 2 times a night, and for some reason it just stopped. Maybe because she was sick/getting sick, but she is even sicker now, so who knows..

  2. Ummm...we will find out tonight haha. She woke up once last night, but i'm not getting my hopes up. She might be teething, but I will let you know how it goes!

  3. Thanks so much for the award! I really appreciate it.

  4. Of course! I love your blog :)
