When I received Angie's email yesterday congratulating me for being nominated for TWO Best of Blog Awards I was honestly taken aback.
Especially since I haven't been bloging regularly since... summer? Fall brought new challenges of having to study for my agent's permit and a new school year for the kids. Then it was the holidays, then it was trying to recuperate from the holidays...
The point being that I haven't been as present as I used to be and yet someone still thought of me when it came to nominate their favorites. Mind boggling as I had accepted the fact that my relevance in "blogland" had really taken a nosedive... and that was okay.
I was nominated for the Popular Parent award which really brought a smile to my face. Being a mommy is my favorite & most challenging job and for someone to recognize that really makes me feel good. I don't blog often about my kids, but if you are friends with me on Facebook or follow me on Instagram & Twitter they're the true stars! Maybe the nomination is a sign I should bring more of them to the blog?
I was also nominated for the Fierce Fashionista award. As a "bigger" girl on a budget, I appreciate the fact that I've inspired someone with my quirky, budget-friendly style. Even if I haven't posted an outfit since the Fall, I promise that I have been getting dressed every day! With a small, cluttered home and below freezing, snowy weather getting a good fashion post together is nearly impossible! I'll be back in the Spring with more outfit posts, I promise!
|See! I got dressed!|
All this to say that it really, truly is an honor to be nominated. Thank you to whoever remembered I still existed and made the nomination. If you'd like to show your support for me, and many others, visit My So Called Chaos for the first round of voting!
