The Versatile Blogger Award! :)

I love it so much when things just work out perfectly.

Do you know what I mean?  
Like when you are dealing out the cards and the very last card in your hand just happens to be the last card you needed?
Or when you have exactly just enough snacks for everyone at the party to have a taste?
Or when your gas tank just happens to be full at an even number?  


Well...I received the Versatile Blogger Award!  I love it and it feels like it worked out perfectly because this morning, I posted my 100th post.  You can read it here.  The post was written by this girl.  It was her first guest post!  AND she is the one who nominated me for the award.  :)  Hooray! 

This is my first award...and it just happens to fall right after my 100th post.  I am so excited and I'm very appreciative of  Breanna for thinking enough of me to include MNWL in her top 15.  :)  I've been blogging for a few months now, but in the past few weeks I've really gotten into the "making friends" aspect of blogging.  The bloggy-friendships really add to the experience of blogging.  My blog's original purpose was to document the newlywed years, but it's turned into so much more and I'm having a great time.  Do you ever catch yourself thinking "I can't wait to blog about this" after something amazing happens?  :)

Anyway, I'm very happy for the honor.  Thank you Breanna ~ I hope you all go follow her.  :)  Click here!

I don't really feel very worthy of giving this award to some of these blog is still so tiny and I feel a little awkward "awarding" more successful bloggers.  Um...but rules are rules and I'm trying to follow them to the best of my ability.  :)  And I wanted to pick blogs that I actually enjoy reading...bloggers who I feel deserve it.  So...thanks to all of you {as listed below} who give me interesting things to read, fun tutorials to follow, pretty homes to look at, fashion & relationship advice, and my daily dose of humor.  :)

Seven Random Facts About Yours Truly
1.  My birthday is in 9 days and I will be 23 years old!  :) 
2.  Purple and Green are tied for my favorite color.
3.  I played the trombone for two years in middle school.
4.  I have freakishly tiny hands and feet.  My wedding ring is a size 4.5 and I can wear kids' shoes. 
5.  We will probably never have children.  I love the idea of creating a life with the man I love, but I'm just not into screaming pooping babies.  
6.  I've been bit by a spider once, so now I'm terrified of them.  No matter how big or small.
7.  I have one joke that I can remember.  I always forget any other jokes..."There are two penguins on an ice burg.  One penguin says to the other penguin 'It looks like you're wearing a tuxedo.'  And the second penguin says "Who says I'm not?"  Who knows why this is the only joke I can ever remember.  It's not even very funny.  It's barely a joke.
