Very Inspiring Blog Award





I was so excited when I saw my blog’s name on a list from What’s Green With Betsy?!? nominating me for a Very Inspiring Blog Award! Her blog is informative and I love that she is local to me (about 2 hours away). 

This nomination came a few weeks ago.  It has taken me a long time to fulfill the requirements.  Especially the list of other blogs to nominate.  So difficult to choose!

Here are the requirements for this award:
1)      Display the award logo on your blog.
2)      Link back to the person who nominated you.
3)      State 7 things about yourself.
4)      Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link to them.
5)      Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award’s requirements.

Seven Things About Myself:
1.  My first language as a child was Armenian. My Mother claims I could understand everything and she had to make an effort to teach me English at around 3-4 yo. Although I don’t remember any of it now. 

2. After surviving infant twins, my husband and I vowed to help anyone we could with twins. I was able to help my friend with her one month old twins a couple of years ago so she and her husband could sleep.
3.  I would love to have a huge vegetable garden, except that I am a total black thumb!

4. I love to cook and bake. I watch foodnetwork all the time and love looking through new cookbooks. 


5. I spent 5 weeks backpacking through Europe when I was 20, after spending a semester abroad in England.  

6. I have a Bachelor’s and Master’s in Electrical Engineering and worked for 14 years as a software engineer in the defense industry.

7.  I need coffee in the morning.  It has to be hot, even in the summer.

My Nominations for the Very Inspiring Blog Award:
This was a very difficult list to put together.  It took me a couple of weeks.  I truly enjoy all of these blogs, and others, and look forward to their new posts.  They always teach me something or make me think.  I arranged these alphabetically because I didn’t want to imply a “like” order 🙂

1. Crunchy Betty  This is my go-to blog for any DIY beauty recipe.

2Crunchy Farm Baby I recently “met” Leah through an online green mom blogger group.  I love her blog because it it filled with relevant, practical tips and tricks anyone can do!

3. Eco-Novice Filled with great information for anyone going green.
4. Green 4U This one is a recent discovery and is quickly becoming a favorite.

5. Green Talk Anna has loads of experience, especially with building green houses and working with businesses going green, but also tons of information for the average person. Also a great place to discuss and start conversations about green issues.

6. Groovy Green Livin’  Lori is the go-to woman for green issues!  Did you see her on ABC World News?  I have had the pleasure of meeting her in person and having a great chat with her at a local Whole Foods.
7. Kelley’s Passion for Nutrition Kelley is a new online friend who gives great recipes and great information.
8. Kitchen Stewardship Katie focuses on good healthy food and great recipes!
9. My Plastic-free Life  Great resources and inspiration for reducing plastic in your life.
10. My Zero Waste I love hearing about Mrs. Green’s efforts to get to zero waste.  I especially like it that she is in the UK.  It is very interesting to hear about other countries.
11. Reduce Footprints – This is a wonderful site for meeting other “greenies”.  The weekly challenges really make you think.

12. The Good Human My favorite from the Green human is a new series called “Buy Once, Buy For Life” and the weekend news roundups.

13. Wachusett Region Recycling Resource  Local resource for ALL recycling.
14. Wellness Mama Another go-to for DIY recipes and great information on being healthy.
Congratulations to you all and thank you for what you do!
