Sharing some blog love

Emily from Emily's Latest gave me some blog love in the form of an award (I love awards, almost as good as giveaways!). I have been following Emily for awhile now because she maintains a great list of giveaways open to Canadians (and Americans too of coarse). So if you are wanting to feed your own giveaway addiction check her out.

For the award I have to make two lists. Luckily I like lists.

7 things I love

1. My family. I may complain, I mean speak honestly, about my days at home with the kids but I really don't want to be anywhere else. And my husband is pretty awesome.

2. Reading. I love a good book. So much so that I haven't been reading much lately because when I start a book I don't want to put it down. And I do need to go to bed.

3. Trashy magazines. People, US, In Touch are my mindless escapism. I love reading about celebrities and their crazy lives.

4. My clothes line. I like seeing the wet clothes blowing in the wind.

5. French fries. I could eat them all day. My favorite are from chip trucks.

6. Living downtown. I love to be able to walk everywhere. We can even walk to the husband's work and pick him up.

7. Traveling. Or I used to. But you know I am never doing that again.

7 bloggers I love

1. Frugal + Urban

2. A Crafty Mom

3. Anti-Supermom

4. Strocel

5. a peek inside the fishbowl

6. Postcards from the Mothership

7. PhD in Parenting
