A couple of weeks ago, my friend Amy at Amy Bakes Everything bestowed upon me the Stylish Blogger Award. I'm not sure I would call myself stylish, but I would say I'm a little egocentric and would never turn down an award. So, thanks Amy!

I met Amy almost eleven years ago. Yeesh. At the time, she was my professor for theatre costume and makeup design in college. Now she bakes and sells the most delicious desserts right out of her own house. I have a recipe box dedicated to Amy's recipes that I've printed off her site. Seriously, check it out. But I must warn you, you could gain 10 lbs just by reading it.

Apparently there are some rules to accepting this award. One of them is to share seven things about yourself. Well, since this blog is about my kids and not so much me, I will do my best to incorporate the two. 

1) I never saw myself as a mom. Don't get me wrong, I love being a mom. I just never thought I'd have kids. But then I met Brian and my plans changed.

2) People think it's odd that I want a cesarean birth. I would have requested from the beginning with Christopher if it I thought they'd go for it. I don't need the experience of a natural birth. You wouldn't want one either if you were known to produce babies that weighed 10 lbs.

3) I long for the day I can go to the bathroom by myself.

4) I know all the words to the Hot Dog song on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse but I don't know what songs are on the Top 100 Billboard Chart these days.

5) I've learned babies make you do crazy things like stop eating ice cream for breakfast and start eating things like eggs and toast. But that's only because if you eat ice cream or cookies in front of them they will want them too.

6) I only have 20 days to delivery. EEEEK. Double EEEEK.

7) Nothing is more important to me than family.

Whew. That was tough. But now I gotta pass on this award. That's not so tough. I don't think there's a specific number of bloggers I have to pass it on to, so I'm just going to pick my favoritees.

For obvious, and not so obvious reasons, I have to choose my sister Beth's blog, Simply the Beth. I would be lying if I said it wasn't because she was my sister. But it's also because she has a wonderful blog where she isn't afraid to speak her mind. And that's pretty cool in my book.

Next is Christen at Breakfast at Target. Her sense of humor always has me cracking up and who else can get away with having a "Thankful" post one week and a "Things I Hate" post the next?

Then there's Gemma at Josh & Gemma... Happily Ever After. Gemma has a way of finding the good in everything. Plus she's makes everything pretty. I love pretty things.

Lastly, I would like to hand this prestigious award over to Heather at A View from a Broad. She has a couple of blogs floating in the world of cyberspace but this one is my favorite. Her deadpan humor is unbeatable, the family stories can make you tear up, and her opinionated pieces get you as fired up as she is.

So there you have it ladies and gentlemen. I've fulfilled my duties in this short reign and I'll be watching to see who else it gets passed to. For the winners, to accept this award, you must do a few things:

1) Thank the person who gave you the award.

2) Share seven things about yourself.
3) Pass the Award on to other bloggers you follow and who have inspired you.
4) Copy the award from my blog and then you may display it on your own blog.
5) Notify your selected recipients.
