Random BlogWorld Stuffs

I am fairly new to the world of blogging. I started my blog a while ago but I decided to really post on my blog every day, read other people's blogs, and comment on other people's blogs about a month and a half ago. It has been so much fun getting to know people and finding so many fun blogs! It's so fun to read people's blogs and relate to them through things that we have both been through as well as things that we are going through right now. It's fun to get ideas from people's blogs and it is so much fun to look forward to having kids, being done with school, and so much more through reading people's blogs who are at this point in their lives. 

Recently in blogland I have had some super sweet people give me awards and it is so exciting to know that people read, and like my blog! So today you all get to hear seven more random facts about myself because I got another Versatile blogger award {see first one here} from the sweet Jessica of her blog Live Laugh Love {Thank you Jessica! And everyone else, please go check her wonderful blog out! I love reading her random thoughts and she is a very talented writer. :]}. I was also given the "I Dig Your Blog" award. That one was from the wonderful Gentri Lee. I have been reading Gentri's blog for quite a while and I always love her sweet comments and her sweet responses to my comments on her blog. She is lots of fun, super stylish, and is throwing a Utah blogger meet-up with some other Utah bloggers that any of you in Utah should check out. {I wanted to go so badly and even looked into flying out there but school is just not that nice to me!} Finally, I was tagged in a fun blog game by Ashley from her blog Sloanbook! I love Ashley's blog all about life with her husband and her adorable dog Katinka {You should check out her most recent post and see where they got that name from! I love the story!}

So, first, thank you to all the wonderful ladies that sent me these fun things!

Now, here are seven {more} random facts about me:
  1. I am in the process of starting another blog with a couple of my sisters-in-law. My sister-in-law Jackie had this great idea to do a blog with some of the gals from the family where we post about affordable style, crafty things, sewy things and the like. We are in the process of making the blog cute {thank you to my skilled sister-in-law Nikki} and getting some posts up for everyone to read! I can't wait to tell you all about it in a few days! 
  2. I just started an on-campus job that I love! I work in an office answering phone and dispatching messaged to General Maintenance Managers across campus. Sounds cool, eh? Haha. 
  3. I used to meditate every day. And no, not the mmmmm...mmmmm...hands in the air, legs crossed kind of meditate. I would simply find time every day to sit, relax, and not think or stress about anything. I would just be for a few minutes. I think that I am going to start this again because it made my days so much more manageable. 
  4. I dream of having a piano in my home someday. I am not by an means a good pianist but I love to play the hymns and primary songs. It's calming and I really want my children to grow up around music. 
  5. I love babies and can't wait to have my own someday. Want to know a guilty pleasure my mom and I have? {Yes! I knew you would!} My mom and I both love to buy baby clothes for my future children. I already have a drawer full of adorable clothes for my future adorable babies! 
  6. I want to learn to sew so that my kids can have the coolest Halloween costumes ever! 
  7. I am already planning Christmas presents thanks to this post by Yours Truly, Madison! I am SO SO excited for Christmas! :]
