One Lovely Blog Award

I was nominated not once, not twice, not three times and not even four times for the One Lovely Blog Award.  I was nominated FIVE times for this award over the past week and a half! 

Who are these five lovely ladies who nominated me, you ask?

Megan at Run Like a Grl - She is one of my Reach the Beach: New Jersey teammates!

Alex at Healthy Life Happy Wife - Another RTB: NJ teammate!

Marcia at Marcia's Healthy Slice - A fellow FitFluential Ambassador!

Jen at Running with the Girls - She lives in my home state of Maine and another fellow FFA!

Jenny at The Little JBird -  We officially met at the Skunk Cabbage Half Marathon and I love her!

Thank you ladies for nominating me, it was a shock to be nominated by so many of you!

There are some rules for the One Lovely Blog Award:


1. Post the award logo and picture on your blog and link back to the person who nominated you.
2. Tell seven things about yourself.
3. Nominate up to 15 additional bloggers whom you think deserve the award.
4. Post a comment on the blog of each nominee to tell them they have been nominated!

Here are my seven things:

1. For a long time I would make Mike go to PetSmart every weekend so we could pet all of the dogs and cats. 
2. As a swimmer I would love to race anything, except for breaststroke. 
3. Related to #2, I once swam a 500 backstroke during a high school swim meet just for fun (since it isn't even a real event). 
4. I failed my driver's test the first time, but I passed the second time!
5. Growing up I dated two guys named James, it was slightly weird!
6. Ironically, some of my friends in high school would call me "James". 
7. I really want a Bernese Mountain Dog someday even though our vet has told us not to get one (they have a lot of medical problems and short life expectancies).  

Now I'm going to nominate some other lovely bloggers! (I'm going to skip #4 so hopefully you all see this!)

There are so many more of you that I could have nominated, all of your blogs are lovely!

Which blogs do you think are lovely? 


  1. way to go super nominee!! i was a swimmer in high school but clearly did not love it like you as i never invented a event :)

  2. I LOVE bernese mountain dogs too!

  3. PS: I am loving the new header but truth be told I'd love to see a pic of you slob-ed out on the couch ;) lol

  4. Awwww, you're the best! <3 <3
    The header is great! :)
    I love Berner dogs too but I'm too afraid of their health problems as well.
    I was in FFA too!!! :)

  5. Eric doesn't let me hang out with the shelter animals for long ... he's terrified that I'll bring them all home.
    And, yes, you absolutely do have a lovely blog!

  6. I'm not a pet kind of girl, but my kids make me take them to Petsmart all the time to pet animals and look at the fish and lizards and such.

    I failed my first attempt at my driver's license for speeding. ;o)

  7. New blog header AND an award? Whoop whoop!

    And thanks for the nomination - we'll have to see if I can squeeze it in before the big trip...

  8. i failed my driver's license the first time too! Clearly it's not an indication of the awesomeness of our driving ability. :)

    You are a lovely blogger - congratulations on the award(s)!

  9. Congrats on the 5 awards! It is really hard to pick a few... and great tri-themed header!

  10. You totally deserve the nominations! Can't wait to run RTB with you in the fall!!

  11. HOW DID I NOT SEE THIS?!? haha!

    Jamie, it's because you're really loved. Darn fan club.

    The James thing is really funny.

    My drivers test I did perfect until the parallel parking.... good thing that wasn't worth a whole lot of points. I still SUCK at parallel parking.
