I Got a Versatile Blogger Nomination!

I am flattered to have received a Versatile Blogger Nomination from Becoming Madame!  Upon receiving this nomination, I am expected to follow some rules.  Here goes…

1.  I was nominated by Becoming Madame, an insightful and beautiful blog about an American experiencing the French Lifestyle.  Because of her blog, I am able to live out my dream of visiting France, if only with my imagination and her amazing stories and photographs.

Seven Facts About Me:

1.  I converted to Catholicism three years ago and couldn’t be happier.

2.  I have an 8 month old and a 2 year old.

3.  I go on a drive every afternoon to get espresso, and to get the boys to take a nap!

4.  I love the Nickelodeon show Avatar: The Last Airbender.

5.  My 8 month old is currently chewing on a rug.

6.  I have OCD when it comes to cooking.  I really have to keep it in check.

7.  I am completely addicted to chocolate.  It is my stress release.

And now 15 bloggers that I enjoy reading, in no particular order, that I am passing on the nomination to:

It’s Not a Race Track…


Yesterday, we celebrated Leo’s second birthday. We enjoyed a wonderful pizza party with family and friends. Leo received many wonderful gifts, including the racetrack pictured.
In true Leo fashion, though, he decided that it was not a racetrack but an oven. He proceeded to make “cake” with his race car, making sure to blow on it when removing it from the “oven” so he wouldn’t get burned. He also made sure to share some with me. He truly steals my heart every chance he gets!
