7 X 7 Blog Award

Number 1: Thank the person who nominated you.
Thank you to Briana at Sweet Carolina Grace.  I met her through 5QF and love her awesome blog!

I also wanted to thank Brandi at Life of a New Mommy, she nominated me for a "Tell me about yourself award" which is similar to this back in November and I never got to it at the time, sorry Brandi. 

Number 2: Share 7 things about yourself.

I love my boys, they make me smile every single day.

I love to hike and that is one of the few benefits to living where we do, so many beautiful places to explore.

I love to garden and am starting to plan out my garden for this year.

I celebrated my last birthday (33rd) being a beach bum with the boys in San Diego.

I love flowers, this is my "Crystalline" rose that I picked out and planted with Austin on my first official Mother's Day.

I am a Water Quality Specialist for an Indian tribe, and my favorite part of the job is teaching the reservation youth about science and watershed hydrology.

Every year since we moved here in 2004 we have gone to the forest where Dustin works and cut down our Christmas tree.

Most Helpful:  Adventures in Potty Training
