Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Guess what? Little ole me, who has been blogging for years but only recently connected with other bloggers, got an award.

Katie at Another Clean Slate honored me with the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. How sweet!

The rules are as follows:

1. Display award logo on blog.
2. Link back to the person who gave you the award.
3. State 7 things about yourself. 
4. Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link back to them. Easy enough!

Seven Things about Megan

1. I have two journals full of songs that I've written. Well, I supposed I should say...lyrics I have written. I cannot write or play music, so right now it's just a whole lot of words. There are 150 of them.
2. I recently cut pop and coffee out of my life. I still drink tea occasionally  but for the most part I am living a caffeine free life and I am feeling so, so much better.
3. A few months ago my sister in law gave me a little stuffed dog to cheer me up. It sits on our coffee table in our living room and has become our "house dog". His name is Ruffles. And I know it sounds silly but I don't ever want to take him off that table. 
4. My mood can almost always improve if it's sunny outside.
5. I am an associate of the Sisters of Mercy and I take my faith life quite seriously. I, mostly, see God in others and in my relationship with others.
6.  I play volleyball in an adult rec league from January through April. I wish I could play year round.
7. I have two roommates who are also two of my best friends. I spend a good amount of time with them, and when I'm not with them, I am hoping that they are okay and that their day is going well.

Congrats on your award and nice to know so much about you. I used to play in an adult league softball until I had my second child. I miss it but volleyball can be so much more fun.

Btw, I used to have a stuffed dog named Ruff-Ruff. My dad gave him to me when I was little and I used to sleep with him. I had to leave him in my hometown though. I now sleep with a stuffed chipmunk. :P
