Awards! (Better late than never...)

Hello. My name is Cate and I am a slack blogger. I swear I don't mean to be!

A little while ago (okay, maybe 10 days ago...) I got an email from Janey at A Few of My Favorite Things to tell me she gave me a blogger award! Because of the time difference, I got the email on my phone, read it, and went right back to sleep. I completely forgot about it until now. Sorry, Janey!

Janey has an awesome blog. I love keeping up with her and her pups. Plus she lives in Hawaii so I like to live vicariously through her. If you don't follow her yet, you totally should. She is one of my favorite daily reads...even if sometimes I forget when she emails me.

The rules are:
1. Thank the person who gave the award and link back to them in your post.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass this award along to up to 15 recently discovered blogs.

7. I am the youngest in my family, and only girl. Yes, I tend to be a little bit spoiled...oops.
6. My family and I are huge South Carolina gamecock fans. I mean huge. It runs deep. We had tickets on the 50 yard line all my life, but this may be the first season I don't make it to any game and it is breaking my heart.
5. I have a slight obsession with the color pink. Everyone picks on me, but I can't help it. I know what I like. Being the only girl in my family, I was always surrounded by it and grew to hate it in my adolescent age. I often joke that I am making up for lost time.
4. I really want a micro pig as a pet. I think they are just so stinking adorable. I think I almost have Sweet Boy convinced that we need one.
3. Although I am studying Psychology in school, I am hoping to fulfill my life-long dream of becoming a housewife and stay at home mom. I always dreamed of doing this while growing up and I can't see myself in any other way. Luckily, Sweet Boy is so lovingly supporting my dream. Most girls may find that degrading, but I don't care. It's what we think will work best for us.
2. When I was in sixth grade, I was doing cartwheels in my friend's yard, six houses away from mine, and I slipped which caused me to break my ankle. I had to walk home and tell my mom (the nurse) who didn't believe me and didn't take me to the hospital until the next day. That pretty much solidified the fact that I would not make it as a cheerleader...
1. I feel so lucky to be marrying the man of my dreams in just over 10 months. I fell in love with him seven years ago, shared our first kiss with each other, and have never stopped thinking about it. He is my hero and the only thing that keeps me going most days. Yeah, it may be hard when he is away, but it is so worth it when he is here.

I'm nominating:
Krista from Life is the messy bits
Dragonfly from Adventures of a Bee and a Dragonfly
A Creed and a Psalm

Happy blogging :)


  1. This whole post just made me bloggy love you even more! I totally want a micro pig too! So bad. When I was little my parent's friend had one and he was smarter than any dog, could do more tricks, listened better, would walk around with his matching leash and harness and I've wanted one ever since. Stupid base housing won't let us get one. Grr. Once we actually own our own house though, it's on! lol And, I just graduated last year with my degree in psych (go psych majors! Woot woot!). But, my ultimate goal is to have a family, and be a housewife and stay at home mom too. I actually was recently really put down for that, but, I don't think there is anything better than having a happy family and taking care of them. Plus, umm hello, how weird is it to have other people raise your children?

  2. Haha! Jane, I guess we were meant to be bloggy friends!! Sweet Boy didn't believe me that the micro pigs were smart, so thanks for more details to back me up! And my mom stayed at home with us until I was in fourth grade and I thought it was totally awesome. I don't understand why people think so little of it these days.

  3. Aww thank you so much!!! I'm part of an elite group I see :) I'm so glad to find your blog and get to know you!
