Kreative Blogger

Thanks to Danielle, I have been deemed as a "Kreative Blogger". Blogging is, in many ways, it's own little world. It's so nice to be able to talk about what's going on in your life and be able to relate to others who are going through the same things...some of which I've actually never met...Sarah and Danielle! I love our little blogging community full of mommies! To do as I'm instructed, here are 7 things that I love.
1. Surprise, surprise...my family!
2. Fall. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited about Spring coming up, but Fall is my absolute favorite season. I'm not sure exactly what it is, but something about that time of year just gives off a sense of family to me. I love the color of the leaves and going to the pumpkin patch, and having just a little nip in the air, I love it all! 3. Houses. Which is a good thing since I'm a Realtor! It was my love of houses that originally drew me towards this career. And while I live in a new construction home that we built, my true love is for older homes. They just have so much more character. However, being married to man who is anything but handy and not having the money to pay someone to fix up an older house, newer is probably the best bet for us. 4. Books. I've not been able to read as much as I would like to, but when I have the time I love a good book. My two favs are Nicholas Sparks (although I've been a little disappointed by his latest) and Jennifer Weiner. 5. Baking. Where this love came from, I have no idea! I'm the oddball in the family when it comes to cooking and baking. My mom didn't really cook much when I was growing up, mainly because she was working 50 hour work weeks in a factory, and partly because she didn't like to. And my grandmother can't understand why I love to cook, even though when she does cook it's great! But somewhere along the road I found Food Network and I've been hooked ever since. I'm also blessed being married to a man who loves to cook. And let me tell you, he makes a mean cheesecake!

Note: This is not my cupcake! I didn't have a picture of any baked goods saved on my computer!

6. Being the hostess. My husband and I both love having people over. It can be stressful at times, but I love my home being filled with friends and family, laughter, good conversations and good food.

7. TV series. I just love a good series! My current favs: Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy, Brothers & Sisters, House and Lie to Me. Alright, now to name 7 others who I think are "Kreative Bloggers" Terri - Always has fun finds and great design ideas. Jadi - A stay at home mom who offers so many fun activities for kiddos that I couldn't even begin to describe them here! Sarah - A part time teacher and full time momma, always sharing the good, the bad and the hilarious things about motherhood. Brooke - A friend from high school who is now a teacher and a mom raising miss Ella Chase in one of the cutest houses I've ever been in. Ashley - Another friend from high school who is an elementary school teacher with an adorable little boy. I also appreciate the honesty in her posts and questions. Brittany - Sharing some of the newest books that she's read. Brigitte - Always has great recipes! Also shares her adventures from her many cooking challenges, she's been on Ultimate Recipe Showdown on Food Network, Build a Better Burger, cooked for the Olympians, getting ready to go to the National Chicken Cook-off and I'm proud to call her a friend!
