I am so honored to share that I have been awarded the Kreativ Blogger award from fellow blogger Kristal! You're such a peach! :) Kristal and I share many interests-- we're both newlyweds {'07 brides in the house!!!}, new homeowners, and have a passion for design, family & friends, music, wine, traveling, of course our furbabies, and so much more. I see myself in so many of Kristal's posts and I am honored that she feels the same way about me!

I am touched to say the least, and I'm glad that some people out there can relate to the crazy events and ideas that make up my life! Now, I have to list 6 things that I am thankful for and 6 blogs worthy of the award.

Things I'm thankful for:
01. Of course, I am thankful for my husband Brian. I can't even begin to imagine my life without him and I'm so lucky to have such an amazing man all to myself. No one in this world could ever treat me as well as he does and I really don't know what I ever did to deserve him! He is truly the love of my life and I love him more and more every day. And I am so thankful that our marriage is so strong and passionate and that we understand each other so well.
02. I am thankful for my family- I was so blessed to be born into such a loving and caring family. Especially my amazing parents & sisters- but our extended family is well. I never understood until I grew older that not all extended families are close like ours and I am thankful that we are. And also Brian's family that accepted me into theirs with open arms and I am proud to call my family.
03. My friends. Where do I even start? I am so thankful to have incredible friends day in and day out. I am thankful to have so many friends-- some friendships since birth, since childhood, since high school, since college as well as my adult-life. Some friendships that I even consider more like family. It is so warm and comforting to know that no matter what decisions I make in life, I have true friends that love me for me and will always be there.
04. G!!! I am SO thankful for my wonderful doggy G-man. I have longed for a puppy my entire childhood and my dream finally came true at 22! Guinness was worth the wait! He is truly my best friend. He is so happy to see me every day when I come home from a long day, no matter what! He cuddles with me, comforts me, plays with me, and unconditionally loves me. It is such a strong love that I will be forever grateful for!
05. I'm thankful for where my life is at right now and it's stability. We both have steady jobs {which is a lot to be thankful for right now!}, own our home, cars that get us from A to B, money in the bank and a warm bed at night. This is SO much to be thankful for to only take up one number on this list! To add to this as well, we have so many luxuries that only add to this stability that I am thankful for- big screen plasma tvs, movies to watch, computers to surf, books to read, games to play... so many added luxuries!!
06. Now that I've covered all the main points, I am also thankful for dvr. If you know me well, you know that I love me some good tv! But due to the first 5 things I'm thankful for, life can sometimes get in the way. ;) I LOVE being able to automatically record all of my favorite shows- new episodes, reruns, football games, etc. and watch them whenever I have a spare second. I can honestly say that without dvr I would probably hardly watch tv at all! More specifically.... OTH, the Office, Grey's, Gilmore Girls, The OC, Brothers & Sisters, Desperate Housewives, The Girls Next Door, Sienfield, Friends, and so on & so forth. Boy, I love my dvr! :)

Blogs I'm passing the award to:
High Heels & Sweatshirts- Lisa is my kind of girl! She loves shopping, hanging out with friends, TWILIGHT, did I mention she's funny? I love logging on to her blog every week to catch up on her latest adventures!
02. Life in the Fun Lane- I adore keeping up with this young couple's lives! They have an amazing eye for design, their house is to die for!, and their always posting the most fabulous thrifted peices!
03. Marital-Bless- Oh Leah, where to I begin? Leah & Tony are fabulous and I love catching up on their lives. Leah has the best stories and I can't read her posts without laughing out loud. They are such a fun, loving couple and I love seeing what their up to. AND they are expecting a little bundle of joy, and I love reading up on her adventures in pregnancy. And her furbabies are precious!
04. Nuestra Vida Dulce- Dave and Joi are such a cute couple! I love reading about their amazing finds and their great diy decor! Their house is just as adorable as they are! Oh yeah and she's a fellow Twilighter- 'nuff said.
05. Newlywedisms by Bryn- I have been following Bryn's blog since day one and she is just fabulous! Her house, her hair, her vintage, thrift finds, her diy magnets {which by the way I made some Bryn!}, and just her amazing outlook on life. She is truly one amazing woman!
06. Life with B & A- Abby is such an awesome chick and her blog shows that! She is full of great ideas- whether it's for decorating, weddings, or styling outfits! She is so inspiring and I love seeing her latest ideas.

I am also proud to say {and thankful!} that most of these wonderful ladies are fellow nesties of mine! Which of course means I adore them even more! :)
