I'm honoured to be awarded as a versatile blogger by Roncy Vic over at Roncesvalles Victorian Reno Diary, one of the blogs I follow. I feel undeserving since I am horrible at keeping the blog up to date. Thank you nonetheless to Roncy Vic for the nomination. Since I started this blog to keep friends and family up to date with our house renos but ended up with a few additional readers, it is too difficult to come up with 7 things that both groups wouldn't know about me so I will try to mix it up a little.
1- I love google reader and follow several blogs daily. I admire those bloggers that post daily. At this point, I don't aspire to do so myself but perhaps if I could make it my job, I would feel differently.
2- I am 39 weeks pregnant and I have an identical twin who is also pregnant (33 weeks).
3- I am not very good at interior decorating/design as I never really have a vision for the rooms. I love seeing other bloggers progress and the thought and planning that goes into each space. I'm not sure that I have the patience to plan my own space. Only time will tell!
4- I am excited to become a mom, although I still can't picture what my life is going to be like. I don't plan on turning my reno blog into a space where I update about my new life as a mom, however I can see myself potentially starting a new bog for that reason.
5- I love getting a deal on big purchases. I am not the best negotiator so I usually walk away while my husband negotiates and am usually thrilled with the results.
6- I like a good challenge and have challenged myself physically with a couple of half marathons and a triathlon. I am trying to think of labour as the same type of challenge.
7- Socializing is my livelihood and I blame that on being a twin. I have an older sister as well so we grew up in a house full of girls (my poor dad). I think this is why I was a little taken aback to find out I was having a boy.
Many of the bloggers I follow have already posted their 7 "things" which I really enjoyed learning... keep them coming! I'll be back soon, if we have time for any last minute renos before the little one arrives.
