Kreativ Blogger Award

So I recently got 2 different blog awards, and I put off doing them.  Not because I'm not excited to have gotten them, but because they always require things about me, and damn if I feel like that's hard to come up with!  But I do want to say thank you to the wonderful ladies, FrecklesChick and Cherie over at Renaissance Garden!  I'll be doing FrecklesChicks over at my home blog UneMaisonChic.  

Cherie gave me the Kreativ Blogger Award, and I am honoured as all get out!  

The 'rules' for the award are:
1. Thank the person who gave this to you.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link the person who nominated you.
4. Name seven things about yourself that no one would really know.
5. Nominate seven "Kreativ Bloggers."
6. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them

Well, here at 7 things that nearly no one knows about me!
1.  I secretly watch geeky shows that G introduced me to.  In fact, although he has the whole series, he's never watched the very last of The X-Files, and I spent a little over a month watching the entire series while he was at work.  So yes, I'm a geek.
2.  I also watch Castle, and I knew what the reference to the Space Cowboy outfit this last week was.  I was embarrassed, since I won't own up to that one!
3.  My husband calls me his little monkey, since I can use my toes for so much.  In fact, when wrestling, he tries to stay away from my feet more than anything, since they are like pincers and I grab on to his skin and he claims it hurts (I think he's just whining).  :)
4.  I love hotels if for one reason only.....I like to jump on the bed, just a little, but it makes me feel like a rebel.
5.  I used to drink my tequila sunrises with fumes coming off of them (and no, I'm not exaggerating. My close friend Lydia pointed it out once, since it was mainly tequila with a shot of OJ.), but now one shot of tequila and I'm goofy.
6.  I desperately want to be fitted for a corset.  I found a woman who makes them in KC while at the fashion show, but wasn't home long enough to look into it.  I have a lot of dresses that would look amazing with some boning under them!
7.  I hate my voice when I get excited.  It gets all high pitched and squeaky.  I sing alto, and yet in high school a friend said it was always surprising how deep I sing since I have such a high voice normally.  I now try to sound less like a valley girl, and my voice is much deeper, as long as you don't get me excited!

As for the nominations, I am going to try and hand out to ones I love but maybe haven't mentioned before:

1.  DiaryofWhy  If you want a self-deprecating good read, this is it.  Her writing style is very engaging!
2.  Destination1940 If you don't read her, you should.  I like to wait a couple days and read several entries at once.  
3.  SimplySeductive  I love this blog for inspiring photos of fashion and decor.  Beautiful.
4.  PugsNotDrugs  I cannot remember how I came across her, but the photos of her pug is enough to make you smile, and the rest of her blog is fab as well!
5.  ClassyandSophisticated  She has some great ideas for projects around your home!
6.  TheFrugalGirl  I may have nominated her before, I dunno, but her beautiful photos, frugal ideas, and grocery savings should make you drop in and say hello!
7.  GarlicBreath  I read Riana's other blog TheseDaysInFrenchLife as well, but this blog has some yummy recipes, and interesting information about food.

Please drop in on the lovely blogs, they are all vastly different, but all fantastic!


  1. Hey thanks! I truly appreciate the award!

  2. Hey, thanks! I should change my tagline to "a self-deprecating good read." Ha! :)

  3. Thank you so much for the blog award nomination; you are incredibly sweet.

    All the very best!

  4. This is awesome!!! Thanks so much, Kalee. It means the world. :)
