Ok… I am moving my blog :)

If you want to carry on reading my blog, leave a comment or drop me an email/tweet/facebook/bbm/sms or whatever and i’ll send you the link…

hope lots of you wanna carry on reading! :)

ooooh, i got a blog award :D

Thanks Mandi!

The rules of this thingy are:

1.  Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award

2.  Share 7 things about yourself

3.  Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers

4.  Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award!

so… firstly – Thanks Mandi :) Oh… I loved the little sentence she wrote about me, I think it sums me up pretty well – pretty good for someone who has never met me IRL and only knows me thru twitter and blogging! This is what she wrote:

She is an awesome graphic designer, is momma to her two beagle babies, adores riding her horses and is planning her wedding to her stukkie.

- hehe, isn’t that cute :D

Right, so part two: share 7 things about yourself… I will try and keep these as new things you might not know about me… if they are nothing new to you, then you know me too well! ;)

1) I really like rocket! Especially fresh, on pizza!

2) Bright hot pink nail polish is my absolute favourite!

3) I think an engagement ring should be more about the sparkly stone/s than the metal.

4) I hate having a pedicure. I wish I loved it. Having pretty toes is awesome, but having someone fiddle with my feet freaks me out.

5) I *love* having my eyebrows done! Waxed and tinted. I have a friend with a beauty salon from home and she does the *best* eyebrows.

6) My latest music craze is Me First and the Gimme Gimme’s. They are an alternative punk band that do covers of old classics, like Neil Diamond and Elton John, and stuff like Somewhere over the rainbow… i LOVE LOVE LOVE them! I have been listening to their 4 albums on repeat, all day, every day for over a week. Can you say “obsessed”

7) I am very very slowly warming to the idea of having children (don’t tell anyone, ok?)

part 3:  Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers

Sheesh – I dont know if I even read 15 blogs, let alone 15 NEW blogs, so i’m just gonna list my 15 favourite bloggers, the ones whose blogs I visit most often, ok?

In no particular order:

1) Glad to be a Girl – we got inked together and hers is one of the first blogs I ever read! (even tho she never does these award/meme things, definitely worth a mention :)

2) Mama MeeA – awesome Mama to many children. She homebirthed her 4th and is an inspiring mama!

3) Angel is one of the NICEST people I have ever met! She is also, practically, my neighbour :D

4) Pinkhairgirl – another awesome mama who i recently met IRL. She is beautiful, inside and out! And she probably the most gorgeous pregnant chick i have *ever* seen! Oh, and her kids are *flipping* CUTE!

5) Jeanette – not only is she the fabulous photographer who will be photographing our wedding, but she is mama to 2 beautiful boys and 2 beautiful huskies!

6) Shayne – I love reading her day-to-day blogs about farm life! her blog is only open to invited reader, but she bakes beautiful goodies too, which is the link i’ve linked to.

7) Evergreen Design – my long time friend, horse lover and fabulous designer!!

8.) Gina – Super friendly with a gorgeous smile! :) She has the cutest Sausage Dogs and I love all the photos of them she tweets ;)

9) The Jackson Files – funny lady who tells it like it is. Love reading her stories about her kid, they make me giggle!

10) Sharon – another fab photographer mommy who is up and down between Pretoria and the rolling mountains of Badplaas (seriously!) ;)

11) Neigh-Bours – ok, ok, this is not *a blogger* but it is a site i visit daily, and I blog there as well, as do a lot of other horsey people.

12) My Panic Room – another just-about-neighbour! She’s having a bebe soon!

13) Harassed Mom – vegetable grower and curry maker!

14) JessicaGiggles – another gorgeous lady! Lover of sweet things and giver of awesome hugs!

15) Marieks – has one of the smiliest babies i’ve ever seen… also, she’s a dressmaker, who may or may not be making a dress for me for a rather big event ;)

C’mon, play along!

I signed up with Angel, on her Facebook – posted it on my Facebook, and havn’t got any takers for it yet :(

I also signed up with Mandi – and am now posting to my blog, in the hope of getting 5 sign-ups!

The rules are simple.

1. The blogger posting the offer must send something before the end of 2011 to the commenters who ask to be included.
2. What is sent to the commenters must be handmade by the blogger.
3. The commenters who ask to take part must post the same offer on their blogs, and then send something handmade to the number of commenters who ask to take part, and so on and so on.

AN ADDITION RULE ON MY SIDE: if you wanna play along with me, please let me know your favourite colour! :D

Found the link on Angel’s blog

Words of Affirmation

Actions don’t always speak louder than words. If this is your love language, unsolicited compliments mean the world to you. Hearing the words, “I love you,” are important–hearing the reasons behind that love sends your spirits skyward. Insults can leave you shattered and are not easily forgotten.

pretty spot on! I do love being told “I love you” “i missed you” “you make me so happy” etc etc bla bla soppy stuff :)
and i do love hugs, kisses, cuddles and squeezes too!
