Beautiful Blogger? Me!?

I received my first award! Thank you! Thank you! Jenn from Jenn's Food Journey nominated me.

So there are some rules I have to abide to in order to fully accept this award. First - 7 interesting things about me:
1 - I have been run over, drug behind, and fell out of a car (going 45 mph) and still have never broken a bone
2 - I am a mom by day and a labor & delivery nurse by night
3 - Sometimes I sit and read cookbooks... 
4 - In high school, I was the boys' buddy. I helped them ask my friends out. But it all worked out because I ended up marrying one of my buddies 5 years later.
5 - My parents moved in the summer before my senior year of high school. Instead of taking me with them, kicking and screaming, they let me stay and finish school.
6 - My daughter is a mini-me - red hair, blue eyes, and all. Maybe she'll inherit Redhead Recipes when she is older.
7 - I have been to Hawaii 6 times. My parents moved there (see 5). It is paradise - but mostly when my whole family is there. (and surprisingly enough - my first plane ride was at 18 years old.)

Now- I get to nominate 7 of you!
Hannah from Sherbet Blossom - she's my sister, but I think her posts are inspiring - I want to be a better person when I read them
Marta from Marta Writes - she has a way of showing how beautiful life is.
Melissa from Melissa E Photography - super funny, great photos
Linda from Craftaholics Anonymous - I love her crafts, I am not a crafty person, but her tutorials make me think, "I can do that!"
Jessica from Running with Scissors - she has great projects, but she is also so hilarious!
Whitney from Rookie Cookie - I love her food. Great pictures. I want to try all of her recipes. No, literally!
and Stephanie from The Daily Blarg - my fun twitter friend, she always makes me laugh and is so nice!

  • Thank the person who nominated YOU.

Congratulations. I adore Labor and Delivery Nurses. My 3 children were born naturally and the nurses were the folks who got me through. By the end, I wanted to be best friends or sisters with all of them. And, the fact that you cook too. I just might want to marry you. ;) My hubbie is the cook in the house so he will be checking in on your recipes. Thanks for checking and joining my blog. I hope I make you laugh.

Thanks for the nomination!

Also, I hope you like the sugar cookies, I am really interested being that we are both sugar cookie snobs from different ends of the spectrum. I hope I haven't talked them up too much. You are right many times softer can taste like flour. So use as little as you can to make the dough managable...thus why I don't use a floured surface to roll them out or anything. I hope the recipe isn't a bomb for you and ends up wasting your precious ingredients! That is the worst.
