I've just been awarded not one, but two blog awards. Huge thanks, Rachel! (Her very cute blog is here.)
Aaahhh, I just love looking at them! Now it's my turn to pass it on. By accepting these, I agree to:
1. Thank and link to the person who nominated me. -check
2. Share 7 random facts about myself. -will do
3. Pass the award to 5 blogger friends -will do
4. Contact and congratulate the nominated blogs. -will do
Seven Facts of Randomness about ME:
1. I am the youngest of five kids, and of the five, I am the only one with (naturally) blonde hair.
2. When I was eight or nine years old I wrote a whole series of picture books called Why, Mr. Rabbit about a rabbit who moves to town and has super powers. The illustrations were done thanks to the new stencils I'd gotten for my birthday-ha ha. Sadly, the books were thrown away in a fit of childish sibling rivalry. Boo hoo.
3. Even though I only have two children, I've been pregnant FIVE times. (I despise you, miscarriages).
4. I am a Mormon! :) Check out my profile, if you want!
5. I play the clarinet like a madwoman (or I used to. Not as much since I had kids and started writing. And blogging!), and my senior year of high school I won first place in the Idaho State solo competition.
6. I'm itching to travel to Europe and see the Eiffel Tower.
7. We are living in our in-laws house while they're serving a mormon mission, and hooha, they're continuing to pay for their housekeeper...sigh. Idk how I'll go back to cleaning my own house when we move!
There it is! Me.
And now, my picks. You lucky winners will get a two week cruise to the Bahamas and a lifetime supply of chocolate! (Just kidding!)

Jill Campbell- Outside the Lines

I'm a mother, a Mormon and a musician, and I squee over all things pink and sparkly. I write books about doors that shouldn't be opened and enchanted tears that shouldn't be shed. I'm the proud wife of a farmer, and we live in a dinky Idaho farm town where the chances of getting stuck in tractor-induced traffic jams are highly likely. I believe anything can be made better with a good attitude and maybe a book packed away for those just-in-case times.
