Our First Blog Award!

Wow, we are honored that Zoe from My Wondrous Marvellous Obsession has nominated us for our very first blog award!  We love sharing our thoughts with all of you and we hope you love reading them!  Thanks Zoe!

Rules for the award:  Each person must post eleven things about themselves.  Answer the eleven questions the tagger has set for you.  Come up with eleven other questions for the people that you are going to tag.  Choose eleven people (with less than 200 followers) and tag them in your post, no tagbacks.  Follow the tagger and visit at least three of the nominees.

11 Things About Us:

  1. We aren't first time bloggers!  You might not know this but Morrisa started a blog in 2007 called The Making of Baby V to chronicle our journey through infertility.  If you are interested in checking it out you can read it here.  Shawn started a sports blog in 2011 called Sports Loving Family Man and you can find it here.   
  2. We met on the internet!  It was about 14 years ago and it was NOT on a dating site, but nonetheless, we met online.
  3. Our favorite place to visit is Gettysburg, PA.  We love the history behind the place and we love the paranormal side of it as well.
  4. Morrisa has an obsession with all things Halloween!  She loves to decorate for fall and especially for Halloween.  She loves scary movies and anything paranormal/ghost related.
  5. Shawn is obsessed with sports.  He will watch sports any time of the day no matter what kind of sport.  He has already started training Noah to love sports as well.  Morrisa thinks she is going to be outnumbered!  
  6. We are both die hard Baltimore Ravens fans.  We bleed purple!  
  7. Due to number six above we HATE the Pittsburgh Steelers.  BOO! 
  8. Shawn is a lay minister at our church.  He helps the pastor out and occasionally gives a sermon. 
  9. Shawn is also an amazing singer!  (Yes, it is Morrisa writing this- he would never admit this himself)
  10. We have an amazing little boy named Noah who is 3 1/2.  He is the center of our universe!  He is smart and silly and everything that we ever hoped for when we started our long journey to have a child.
  11. Morrisa loves to bake.  She loves to bake all kinds of yummy desserts but her passion is cupcakes!  Her dream job would be to open up her own cupcake shop.
Our 11 Questions from Zoe:

  1. Why did you start blogging?- We started blogging (with this current blog) because we always seemed to have opinions about certain products and because we love trying new things.  We thought there might be someone out there somewhere who might be interested in what we have to say.
  2. What is your favourite thing to do on a rainy day?- Stay inside and hang out as a family.  Sometimes that involves doing together stuff like watching a movie but sometimes we all do our own thing but we are still together.  Morrisa is usually reading while Shawn plays his Playstation 3 and Noah likes to use the computer.
  3. If money was no object, where would you like to visit?- We would love to visit Germany.  Both of our families have history in Germany so we would love to visit some of that history.
  4. What was the last song you listened to?- The last song we listened to together was Kissed You Good Night by Gloriana- good song!
  5. Would you rather be a dog or a cat for a day?- A cat!  We have two cats and they have it made!
  6. If time travel was invented, where would you go?- Morrisa would visit the 80's- She is still in love with the music and thinks things were much simpler back then.  Shawn would visit the 70's for the exact same reason. 
  7. Do you prefer city life or country life?- Country life!  We have a farm house in the country that we visit frequently.  Morrisa works in Baltimore city so she gets enough of the city life during the week.
  8. What is your favourite brand of nail polish?- Shawn hates all nail polish because he says it smells.  Morrisa tell Shawn to plug his nose and says that her favorite polish is China Glaze.
  9. High end or Drug store make up?- Shawn doesn't wear makeup.  Morrisa uses a little of both.  Morrisa always says she is not a makeup snob and if it works well and looks good who cares what the price is or where you can purchase it from.
  10. What was the last thing you bought?- Um, I guess groceries. :)
  11. How would you describe yourself in three words?- Loving Silly Happy
