Marie “Kreativ Blogger” McKinney-Oates. That’s a lot of nameage.

I’m not going to gush on her anymore because this is getting sick, but another reason I love her is because her brainchild is part of the reason that I have been introduced to so many other bloggers out there. I heart other bloggers. Especially sweet ones like Angelia at Amelioration of Ang who GIVE ME AWARDS! That’s so cool. Thank you, Angelia!

I don’t think I’m very much of a Kreativ Blogger. Kreativ Bloggers knit things and have etsy shops. I do neither. BUT I did draw a picture last Friday so I’m taking this award with a huge “Hellz Yeah”.

So here are the rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award. (check)
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog. (check)
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award. (check)
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting. (see below)
5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers. (see below)
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate. (check)
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they have been nominated. (to be done)

Ok, 7 interesting things…

a) I can’t listen to someone talk about heights/jumping out of planes/climbing rocks without my hands getting totally clammy. That’s why even thinking I’d climb a rock was hilarious from the beginning.

b) I love American Girl dolls. Right after getting married and becoming a cat parent, my visit to the American Girl store in Chicago is one of the best experiences in my life.

c) I want to tell you about my little sister’s blog because she’s so funny, but 15 year olds are moody and I’m not sure she’d be happy with me outing her corner of the internet. She’s edgy and so much cooler than me. I love it.

d) I knew I would marry Mark many times over, but one of the funniest times I knew was when he told me what he’d name his future son. When I was with the guy I dated forever I always said I wanted to name our kid Barney Barnes (his last name was Barnes). Because that’s funny. The guy hated the idea. Well, I obviously never told Mark this, but one day when we were talking about kids he said he’d want to name his son Otis. Otis Oates. Match made in heaven, right?

e) I can’t wait to be a grandparent. It looks like so much fun.

f) I’ve replaced my McDonald’s addiction with a Totino’s Pizza one. Those things are awesome.

g) I hate that Bloody Mary story that says if you turn the light off in the bathroom and say her name so many times she’ll come out of the mirror. It freaks me out and I will NEVER go into a bathroom with a light off. Ever.

I’m sure that was thrilling for all of you. Now here are my 7 Kreativ Blogger Nominations that I’ve limited to people who live in Nashville. Who knew there’d be so many TN bloggers…

My Sister – She’s funny. Especially her stories about our mom. (I’ve been permitted!)

Susan – One of my best friends that I refer to as my “partner in crime”.

Sarah  – We went to high school together and I always wondered how she always got the highest grades in Ms. Coombs’ English class. Well, she started a blog recently and it’s because she’s a brilliant writer.

Jessica – Another dear real life friend that started a blog about how to be a fashionista on a budget. I adore this girl.

The CURRENT Mrs. Smith – One of my favorite bridal bloggers turned newlywed blogger. What I love is that she stayed fun and sassy after the wedding. Not an easy thing for the newlywed bloggers of the world.

Candice – I’m not sure if you’ll be able to get to this blog because it might be private, but I love this girl. She’s SECRETIVE because she’s awesome.

Kathy and Rebekah – These are mommy bloggers with adorable kids and kid stories. Love those. They’re together because we know each other because of an intricate web of friendships. And because, technically, I’m going over my 7 nominee limit so putting them together allows me to feel like I’m following the rules.

Ok, now I just have to go comment on everyone and let them know they’ve warmed my heart with their blogging goodness…

    You may not knit or have an Etsy shop, but your words are so creative. You make me laugh– I’m a bit of a sourpuss so this is quite the accomplishment! 🙂

    How funny, from your blog I would not guess you were a sourpuss. You seem really sweet 😀 And thanks for your sweet words and the award… too fun!

  2. That picture last week was a riot! That along earns you the Kreativ tag 🙂

    Congratulations on your super cool award!

    So funny,…..Otis Oates I wanted to name my first Woodie Oates, must run in the family, yup your family. I have plans to introduce you to your creative side when you get here at Christmas, the other option is we go nuts with nothing to do but talk. Hummm that might take up all our time, Oh and I did fine a pulga (a flea market) today that you might find interesting.

    Oh my goodness. I am meant to be in your family! I love this 😀 And the idea of being introduced to my creative side by you. That makes me giddy!

  4. Sarah says:

    Aw, wow! I never win anything. 😉 I’m gonna make it my mission to read more blogs so that I may come up with seven favorites. I’m picky, ya know. Bwahaha!

    You are so funny! Seriously, check out… lots of great bloggers there.
