I'm Stylish?? Really?? Stylish Blogger Award

I am thrilled and humbled to have been given a Stylish Blogger Award by Kathleen at Celiac Baby

Kathleen has a great site that not only provides information and advice to parents of children who need to have a dairy and gluten-free diet, but she does so with flair and gentle support, helping those who read her site to realize that there are many menu options and lifestyle choices that will enhance the quality of life without taking away from the yummy food that can be eaten! I have many of her menus on my list of items that I will be trying this summer and I urge you to try them as well. Please check out her site and show her some love!

That said, in the spirit of the Stylish Blogger Awards, I will follow the rules and do the following:

  • Thank and link back to the person who sent you the award.
  • Share seven things about yourself.
  • Spread the love. Award recently discovered bloggers.
  • Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.
So here I go: 

7 Things You Wanted to Know About Multiple Mayhem Mamma But Were Afraid To Ask:
  1. Gorillas and apes are my absolute favorite type of animal. They look kind of sad and I feel sorry for them and I don't know why. I also realize that this is strange.
  2. I was born in London, England and came to Canada when I was three years old.
  3. My favorite wines are Reisling, Gew├╝rztraminer (white) and Shiraz and  Pinot Noir (red). I cannot stand Chardonnay.
  4. I can (thankfully) get by on very little sleep, most of the time (five hours or so. Less than three, I start really spacing out).
  5. Drinking coffee or tea just before bed has no effect on my ability to fall asleep.
  6. I hate coriander because the flavor makes me feel nauseous. However, I love Thai food, so this presents a problem, sometimes.
  7. I make a mean, homemade baked macaroni and cheese from a totally made-up recipe at the urging of my daughter, Miranda. I will share the recipe on this blog one day soon!
Okay, that's it! 

Now on to passing the torch - the part I really like!

Here are 10 Blogs That Deserve a Read:
  1. Life Not Finished - A wonderful blog about family life, twins and everything that comes with it.
  2. Twins Plus One - Three Times the Fun - A fellow twin mommy who is able to manage a full-time teaching career, twins plus one. Oh, and she has a great blog, too! Hats off to her!
  3. Style and Error - Heaven knows some of us moms (hello - ME!!) need style help! Thankfully, Melanie gives us the goods. Great blog.
  4. My Real Life Parenting - The real goods from a real-life "Supermom." This woman seems to be able to do it all - with ease!
  5. MaMe Musings - This twin mommy keeps it all together and does so effortlessly!
  6. Mommy Monologues - This woman is funny! And she does videos, too! Check her out - you won't regret it.
  7. Mommy on the Move - Advice, adventures and product reviews - what more do you need??
  8. I Need a Playdate - A fellow working mom who is also in Laundry Hell. Love it!
  9. JDaniel4's Mom - Learning and Loving - this former educator and technology trainer blends both in an inviting and interesting blog. You'll be glad you visited.
  10. Diaries of a Grumpy Grateful Mom - A fellow mom of four - she gets it. And seems so together, too!
Honestly there were so many other blogs that I wanted to include but space would not well, you know...the rules. That said, I'm hoping to provide other opportunities in the near future to highlight other parenting and mom blogs that I have had the pleasure of reading. Stay tuned!
