Lovely Blog Award

Monday, January 19, 2015

Welcome back to 528 Square Feet, and boy am I so glad you stopped by! Before we get into Janette's AWESOME planner post on Thursday, (and I mean you WILL want to see this!) I have some MAJOR news to tell you!

I have been nominated for the "Lovely Blog Award"

This is kind of a big deal for me, seeing as I started my blog on a complete whim! <3 I'm so thankful for the nomination by Maureen over at Happily Embellished! She is literally one of the nicest and most supportive person I have met here in the planner and blogger world. I'm so happy to me making such positive friends throughout my simplified journey.

Here's how this blog award works:

The One Lovely Blog Award nominations are chosen by bloggers for newer or up-and-coming fellow bloggers. The goal is to help give recognition and to also help the new blogger reach more viewers. It also recognizes blogs that are considered to be “lovely” by the blogger who chose them.  In order to “accept” the award the nominated blogger must follow several guidelines.

The rules for accepting the award are:

  1. Thank and link back to the person who nominated you!
  2. Share 7 things about yourself!
  3. Nominate 15 or so other bloggers and comment on their blogs to let them know! 

I also am only nominating a hand full of people to illustrate my sincerity in my nominations!

My nominations are as followed:

Janette Lane

Lastly, my blogger, planner, and youtube idol:


Once again I am so incredibly grateful to Maureen for nominating me, and want to thank all my nominations for being an inspiration to me!

Now the harder part - my 7 facts!

  1. My absolutely favorite thing to do when going on dates with my husband is to go fishing! 
  2. I LOVE the new television series "Alaskan Bush People!"
  3. Before we downsized and I decided to simplify my life, I was a cluttered mess and had an overwhelming amount of craft literally couldn't even walk in my office.
  4. I am currently on a weight loss journey, and my weight has always been a constant struggle. 
  5. I was once a vegetarian until I worked in my local butcher shop where I was converted because of bacon. 
  6. I've only ever been in a hospital twice in my life - once for my birth, and the other for a dislocated pinky.
  7. I'm also a youth pastor and going back to school in February to get my teaching license.

I'm so excited to have been nominated for this award, and I can't wait to see all the other nominations that will come pouring in! I'm so thankful for my readers, and all the support I've received this far in my blogging journey! You guys are the best!!!

Simplify something this week!!!



  1. "Because bacon" is the best excuse to not be a vegetarian there really is, ha.
