awards: bask in the sun in style

15 June 2011
Last week, my wonderful bloggy friend Mom 2 Kiddos  awarded me with these!

Why, ThankYou!

*round of applause*

I am more than honored to accept!  *blush*

I dedicate this award to all the wonderful friends that make up my online community! These amazing women who take time to read and comment on my posts somehow validates my decision to resurrect this blog. Oops, are there  men out there too? 

Now, on to the 7 facts about me. I am not a book, so...please don't judge me! :)

1. I am a Capricorn born in the year of the Dragon! What does that mean? Nothing. I think that makes me an old dragon with a wry sense of humor.

2. I am a pack rat and hence, 

3. I don't travel light...and, always worry about overweight baggage. My husband always scolds me for that. But I've found ways around it—ship the luggage to your final destination! 

4. When I graduated from med school, I vowed that I would sleep for a whole year! No, that has not happened yet...and will probably never happen.

5. Glee and Gossip Girl are my guilty pleasures. Back in the day, it was Felicity! 

6. I love making "to do lists", "to buy lists"...lists, lists and, more lists. No, they don't get all done.

7. I have never learned to play a musical instrument. Boo me. But I can dance! 

Okay, enough about me! 

I now pass on these awards to the following bloggers. In no particular order. *dun dun dun dun*

1. Sherry of The Savvy Mummy. Stumbled on her blog and discovered that she made a directory of bloggy mums in SG. Isn't that neat?

2. Sara of Kongchu Thoughts. I followed her first on Instagram then Twitter then found out that she blogs too! So does that make me a stalker now?

3. Lexie Lane of Voice Boks. She prolly doesn't need this award but I just have to hand it to her for running one of the best online mum communities. I'm glad she commented on one of my posts and invited me over. 

4. PC of Scrap Mum Loft...because she's one resourceful mummy!

5. Laura of Day by Day in Our World. I find it  interesting to peek into the world of a homeschooling mum in Alaska!

6. Rachel of Life with Baby Donut. Owls and doughnuts...they go together. Remember the line from Dr. Seuss Super Senses book? "Noses are for smelling, doughnuts smell sweet, lots of noses smelling owl's feet"

7. Brynn of Chartreuse and A Twist. Admit it, chartreuse rolls nicely off the tongue, doesn't it? Seriously she has a slew of eye candies in her blog.

So go and savor your awards for as long as you like and remember to:
1. Pay it forward (to as many blogs as you like, 5-10 maybe?)
2. Share with your readers 7 things about yourself.


  1. Good one! Ooh Dragon lady - which makes you younger than me. I love making lists too! Congrats on your awards!

  2. Woot! Congratulations on your awards! I find your blog (especially the header) really cute! :)

    By the way, I just dropped by from the VoiceBoks site. Welcome to the family! :D

  3. Congratulatins!!! What a fun site! I too am a list maker, and, like you it all doesn't get done but I think it helps to write it down!! I found you on voiceBoks and am now a happy follower!! Welcome to the community, it is a realy nice place to visit and meet moms!!

  4. You are too sweet. Yes, nothing goes better together than Donuts and Owls.

    I don't travel light either. I pack so much stuff and end up only wearing half of it!

  5. Congtatulations on your award! What a darling blog you have ... almost as darling as that little one of yours~ but not quite!

    ...and if I could only tell you how many times I've paid the overweight fee when traveling, or shifted items from my suitcase to everyone(and anyone) elses.

    Looking forward to following...

    Many Blessings!

  12. Thank you so much for thinking of me!

    I've written my post and shared awards with bloggers I enjoy.


    And, when the boys and I went to my parents in Louisiana last fall I ended up bringing more suitcases home with us. It just wouldn't fit in ours and stay under weight.


Thanks for reading.
