I've got sunshiiine... on a cloudy day

Please forgive my terrible singing.

It's taken me awhile to get around to this, but thanks to Kristi @ Life at the Chateau Whitman and Nellie @ McCarthy Designs for bestowing the Sunshine Award upon me! It definitely brightened my day, as the name would suggest. :)  Oh, and my sister over at The Yellow Front Door also gave me the award, but she probably feels obligated to. ;) Anyway, I have to admit I don't feel very deserving of an award, considering how little time I've been able to spend blogging lately (more on that below.) But regardless, thanks to these lovely ladies for thinking of me, and you should go check out their awesome blogs!


I'm supposed to pass this along to 12 other blogs that I enjoy reading. Not easy to pick just 12, but here goes (in no particular order, mind you):
1. House Notes

Back to the whole neglecting my blog thing.... Work has been super-busy lately, and it's only going to get worse over the next couple weeks. Then I'll be out out of town for a week (also for work). Therefore I'm going to be taking a break from blogland for a little while. *sniff*  I am really looking forward to May. The weather will be warmer, life will be a little less hectic, and we can finally get some more projects done around the house! Like what, you ask? Well, here's a little teaser...

- Painting our front door
- Adding some personality to our boring bathroom
- Working on our landscaping
- Laying a brick sidewalk
- Maybe even getting started on our unfinished basement?? 

Also, I'll post some pictures of the trees and shrubs that we planted last fall -- they're finally starting to turn green and grow buds, and I'm VERY excited about it! So until next time.... happy April and happy blogging! And to quote the Glass Tiger song: "Dooon't forget me when I'm gone..."

Aww, thank you for the award! It's too bad work has been taking up all of your time. We will all be waiting anxiously for your blogging return! I'm looking forward to seeing what you do to your door and how you go about laying a brick sidewalk!

Thank you! I'm feeling quite honored to be included in your list, especially since I'm slow with blogging myself! I'm going to have to think a bit on this ... :) Can't wait to see your new projects!

Aww, thanks Amanda. I can totally relate to taking a hiatus (planned or unplanned) from blogging. We'll still be here when you get back!

Yay! Thank you for the award! I have loved following your blog. Your area sure has a lot of talented decorators and gorgeous homes!

I hear you about work and being busy. I'm in the same boat. I keep trying to force myself to just take a hiatus and not post since I'm tight on time, but I get too anxious about updating. How weird is that? I think I have issues. You're inspiring me to just walk away. :)

dolores @ Welcome to My Humble Ablog said...

Congrats of yet another lovely award (and thank you for the blog love). I can't wait to see (and read) more about the projects on your teaser list. :)

Carrie @ Two Poms and a House said...

Hey woman, thanks for passing me the award! I will have to check out some of those other awesome blogs you like. Hope you have some fun while your out of town!!

Cindy @The Flipping Couple said...

Amanda!! Ok, I've been in the same boat with super SUPER busy work schedule and I'm a million years behind in my blog reading and I literally just found this post. So first, please know that you totally made my night and that second, I'm so disappointed I'm only finding it now. I'm hoping that I'm finally back on the bloggy wagon and will be able to keep up now!
