My first blogging award, yay!

Oh my goodness, I was just given my first blogging award by, a fellow Canadian Mom blogger who I've started following. Thank you!!

I've enjoyed reading about her adventures as a Mom. Check out her blog, it's fun!

So below is what I've taken from 's post on what to do next as I've just handed this award to you. Here's what you need to do:
  1. Thank the person who gave you the award by linking back to them in your post
  2. Tell us 7 things about yourself
  3. Award a few recently discovered bloggers
  4. Contact those bloggers and let them in on the exciting news!
So here's 7 things about me (not too boring I hope):

  1. I work in the Marketing Dept. of a software company
  2. I work 4 days a week and I'm going to milk that for as long as I can. I started doing this when my second was born and he's 8 now. So my Monday's off are precious to me and I don't want to lose them. I like to think I work hard on the 4 days I'm there to more than make up for the one day off.
  3. We are a camping family. We head on down to the States every May long weekend and Labour day. In the summer, we spend time in Osoyoos, BC. Awesome place!!
  4. I'm quite introverted. It takes me a while to get comfortable with people in groups. I tend to hang around the outside looking in - assessing the situation.
  5. I love baking. Every Christmas I bake a ton of goodies for my department. This has become somewhat of a tradition and every year everyone looks forward to it. That makes me feel good.
  6. I am a lefty. So are my two kids. Nothing is made for a lefty. Coffee mugs have the pictures on the wrong side. Cooking utensils are bass'ackwards. And when I write, I always get ink on my hand.
  7. I like to walk. I walk lots. My walk home from work is about 9 KM (what's that, about 4 miles??). It's my de-stress time and I can listen to my tunes and enjoy the scenery.
So here's who I'm going to pass this award along to - a few bloggers I've recently started following because I think they're great:

Go check them out, okay?
