::Stylish Blogger Award!::

I am like a kid on Christmas morning when it comes to checking my blog. Each morning I wake up so excited to check and see if I have any new comments or followers! But waking up and finding that someone thinks I am a "stylish blogger?" YAY, its so exciting! :) Having started my blog just 1 week ago, I feel so honored (and would feel honored even if it had been a year)! I have loved all the sweet comments and all my new followers. Starting a blog is like a leap of faith...you never know if people will love or hate what you do, or have to say. So a big thank you  to Theresa at All is well  for the award. I am truly flattered. Her blog is adorable, I love her barnwood frame wall, the jewelry display and her super cute wreath! Go check her out, you won't be sorry.


And now, here are 7 random things about myself:


1. I had my first child via c-section. No one thought I would be able to have my second child "regularly" (aka VBAC) after this...but I did! People still say "I thought that wasn't possible?" Well, guess what. It is!


2. I love blasting my radio when I am driving and then proceeding to call my husband/friends/whoever and act like I am at a sweet concert yelling louder than my radio and belting the words really loud. It's best when they don't answer and I get to leave an obnoxious voicemail on their answering machine.


3. I love scary movies but never watch them anymore because the only person who will watch them with me is my mom. (love her)


4. I love freshly mowed grass. Mainly the lines it leaves...perhaps I am homesick for summer. Yep, just checked. I totally am. 


5. I love the outdoors. Camping, boating, surfing, snow-skiing, hiking, riding bikes...you name it. My husband is the ultimate camper and it is sooo sexy. :)


6. I met a guy named Chris. I decided I couldn't live with out him...so I married him. His last name is Christensen. If you haven't caught on yet, my name is Christine. ahem. Yes, together we are Chris and Christine Christensen. Ironic? Yes. (And while we were engaged I just kept thinking...seriously? we are going to be c-cubed for the rest of our lives...) Crazy? Yes. But totally us and awesome? double yes.


7. There is nothing more important in life than Family. I love mine so much and I thank my lucky stars every day for them.

And now, I get to award 8 deserving blogs for the Stylish Blogger Award!

  6. I just had to post another comment. I finally had some time to read your seven things. Never knew that a regular birth was possible after a c-section birth. I love scary movies, but can't watch them anymore either. I love your names. How cute is that?! Thanks again for nominating me. I have a couple of blogs I left out to give the award to, so this gives me a chance to include them.
