Many Thanks for the Blog Awards

This is long overdue! Simplified Bee has received some very sweet blog awards. First, Nikki {most-talented calligrapher and paper designer} at Lovely Scribbles gave me the “Kreativ Blogger” award. Then the lovely gals at Chic Coles {very stylish design blog} nominated me for “The Fabulous Sugar Doll Blogger Award.” Many thanks ladies! I am honored.

Now it’s my turn to say a few things about myself {gulp}. So, here are eight things you might not know about me:

1. Growing up, my family had Standard Poodles – mostly black, but one white called Bodie {named after a ghost town in California}. This photo is not of Bodie, but looks just like him! Photo source.

2. In the morning I enjoy drinking a cup of loose leaf English Breakfast tea with milk {organic}. Lovely photo from stylist, Selina Lake.

3. Recently I read the Twilight series and have seen the movies {yes, I am a Mom-pire}. Team Edward.

4. My favorite TV show at the moment is GLee. Defying Gravity was my favorite song from last season.

5. Before launching my home organization and design business, I was a high tech marketing professional and specialized in event planning for years. {presently living the dream} Photo credit here.

6. I am obsessed with designer furniture, textiles and accessories {okay this one you may have already known}. This gorgeous bedroom was created by one of my favorite designers, Kelly Wearstler.

7. Lake Tahoe, Nevada will always be home. {great place to visit anytime of the year!}

8. Friends, Family and Faith – what life’s all about.

Now here comes the hard part of selecting other blogs for these sweet little awards {so many wonderful blogs out there!}. Here it goes:

Please feel free to pass along and many thanks for continuing to inspire me.

  11. Things That Inspire February 21, 2010 at 4:06 am #

    You and I like so many of the same things! I am also a 'Mom-pire' – I even read the 'Interview with the Vampire' series as a teen, and I adore Twilight. I also adore Glee – when I first watched it, I downloaded so many songs from itunes – a rare things for me. And #8 is a definite for me too!

    Thank you so much for mentioning my blog with this amazing group of bloggers! I enjoy reading each and every post of your blog, and find so much inspiration from it.
