Super Sweet Blogging Award

AW you guys!!! I've been nominated for a Super Sweet Blogging Award by the lovely Jennifer at It's Jennifer Juniper!

Here are the rules:


  • Thank the blogger who nominated you. Jennifer, thank you so much!  You totally made my day!  I've been writing here for many years, but I've never established a very large reader-ship, so I'm always tickled to get a comment, much less be nominated for an award like this!  You're a total sweetheart! You and Mr. Ru are so adorable and you're going to make amazing parents when your day arrives--I hope it's soon!
  • Answer 5 super sweet questions
  • Include the Super Sweet Blogging award image in the blog post
  • Nominate 12 other bloggers

  • Super Sweet Questions: 
    1. Cookies or cake? I have to say cake!  It feels so much more SPECIAL to me than a cookie! :)
    2. Chocolate or vanilla? Chocolate, no contest!
    3. Favorite sweet treat? Mint chocolate chip ice cream in a waffle cone! YUM!
    4. When do you crave sweet things the most? Evenings after dinner--soooo hard to resist! But I am doing better at that!  Back on the get-fit track!
    5. Sweet nickname?  My hubby calls me "Sweet-Thing
    " sometimes. *blush* In his phone, my contact name is "Zsweet thing" so that I'm last in his contacts and easy to find (since the top is always voicemail, balance, etc)

    And now, the 12 Super Sweet Blogs (in no particular order)!

    1. Mrs. E at Ttcbabye3. This mama of twins (and one more on the way!) is a sweet commenter of mine!
    2.  Leah at Single Infertile Female.  This amazing woman battled the most severe case of endo I have ever heard of and kept her head up through it all.  She is strong, independent, brave, and an AMAZING mom to a miracle baby from a truly touching and amazing story of pure chance and destiny!  She's also a phenomenal writer.  She wrote a book, you guys!  GO BUY IT HERE!  I've read it, it's amazing!!
    3. Elizabeth at Bebe Suisse.  Another awesome writer and a super sweet mama currently days away from meeting her latest little one!  Such a sweet commenter and such a fun blog to read!
    4.  KelBel at Tales from Our Yellow Brick Road.  Another follower, gotta love them! I always love her Wordless Wednesday posts, the pictures really give an awesome insight on her life!  She's an inspiring infertility survivor expecting sweet baby boy "Cinco"!
    5. Mommy Someday at Waiting for Baby.  She is currently pregnant (YAY!) and is responsible for my June Blog challenge!  I'm a brand new follower but I'm loving it so far!
    6.  Ready For My Turn at her blog of the same name! Such an inspiring blog, she's been through so much and she has never given up!  She is currently expecting TWINS!
    7.  Cristy at Searching for our silver lining. Another amazing example of resilience and never giving up.  And she is another incredible success story I have had the joy to follow, pregnant with twins!
    8.  Tasha at Frozen OJ first of all, her pun-day posts are HILARIOUS!  Second of all, she's everything a blogger should be, witty, honest, inspiring and a great writer!
    9. SM at Unexplained Rantings.  Amazing changes coming for this amazing woman!  A baby boy on the way and they are opening their home and hearts to a pair of sisters beginning next week!  What a blessing!
    10.  Liz at Wishing on a Snowflake.   Another path to motherhood, this one involving embryo adoption.  I love reading all different kinds of stories and this one was one that made me want to write my book.  She's a strong lady, much stronger than she knows!
    11. Alissa at MissConception.  This is a blog I've followed for awhile.  She's very busy these days with her adorable son Cooper, but she writes and amazing blog and her story has brought me to tears.  She is so deserving of her little rainbow baby and this humble nominiation.
    12.  Missohkay at the misadventures of missohkay.  This is another blog I have been following for a loooooong time.  She an adoption mommy of one of the most adorable little ladies ever!  She writes an awesome blog about her journey, her life, her daughter, etc etc etc!  Her story was one of the first I'd read about a journey to motherhood and a struggle with infertility and loss and it's extremely moving.

    I know I haven't done justice to these little tidbits on the blogs of these amazing ladies, but they deserve much more than I can give with this little gesture.  They are awesome women!!!
