Paying Forward the “Beautiful Blogger” Award

Last week, one of my favorite blog land friends – Ronni at Confessions of a Compulsive Eater – bestowed the coveted Beautiful Blogger Award to a group of ten of her favorite “beautiful bloggers”. That group included me! Thanks lady!

If I were playing by the rules, I would tell you 7 things that you don’t know about me. Unfortunately, seeing that I’m a pretty open person and I just don’t want to think that hard on a Friday, I’m switching it up!

Here are my seven things that I find BEAUTIFUL this Friday!

1. $1.99/lb cherries at Whole Foods – TODAY only!

2. My new fitbook that arrived in the mail this week:


The planner in me is giddy to start making some new goals!

3. A wedding to attend: Kristen – my good friend from way back – is getting married this Saturday! I’m so excited for her and Marty to start their new life together!

4. This “Fans for LeBron James” Flash Mob: almost 200 kids organized together for this awesome moment in downtown Cleveland:


5. Vacation planning! We’re planning trips to Vegas and Boston for the next few months to visit family members.  I haven’t been on a airplane since DECEMBER! For me, that’s a lifetime!

6. Hot in Cleveland, the new TV Land sitcom with Betty White.


Here’s hoping I’m this awesome at 88!!!

7. This puppy eating a dumpling. Yes I posted this to my Facebook earlier this week, but it’s just too darn cute to not share with blog land:


The second rule of receiving this award is that I have to pass the award on to seven other Beautiful Bloggers. Here are my seven of choice for today:

1. Angela at A Healthy Fit

2. Meredith at An Epic Change

3. FoodCents

4. I Dream of Greenie

5. Jessica at EatDrinkBreatheSweat

6. Chase at The Chase Project

7. Jessica at How Sweet It Is (who created these glorious Coconut Rum Cupcakes I plan on having my mom make for my birthday – just a reminder, Mom!)

To these wonderful ladies: no need for you to follow up – just know I think you’re great!

What do you find beautiful today?

    What a wonderful post and I am as always, incredibly inspired by you!

    I find beautiful today seasonal blueberries from the farmer’s market, the Lakers win (sorry Celtics fans), the Magnolia soundtrack (this music really inspires me), Bethenny Getting Married? (my new favorite reality show) and this lovely vintage dress from India in the 1960’s that I scored at my favorite flea market.

  3. Angela @ A Healthy Fit says:

    You like me, you really really like me. Thanks so much for the award! I’ve never gotten one before!
