A Factory Working, College Grad Getting Out of Debt

Rainy Day has been Nominated for 3 Blog Awards!

I woke up this morning to find not one, but two comments on my most recent blog post.  If that wasn’t enough to make me happy, the material within one of those comments most certainly was!  I have been nominated by the lovely and witty missprofessorcasey over at How Not to Kill Your Parents for three blog awards and I honestly cannot believe it.  I started this blog as a goal setting, progress reporting, and accountability item that I would use to get me through my debt and my journey of doing it.  I never imagined that after only three months that I would be nominated for any type of award, let alone THREE!  WOW! Thank you!

Please note that my nominations and interesting items will follow the rules of each award.  

I have been nominated for the following:

My Seven Interesting Things:

  1. My real name is Ashleigh Noelle and means Meadow in December (hence DecMeadow).  My mom pictured a meadow just after a Christmas snow that had been untouched.  I later got her to admit that because I was born in Arizona in the middle of December that she was just really, really homesick for frozen precipitation.😉
  2. My name is also an oxymoron.  Meadow = flat grassy land, my last name = stone filled field. I love this tidbit about me.
  3. I am obsessed with animated features, particularly Disney & Pixar films.  I could watch them everyday for the rest of my life.
  4. I once won a Gold Key in the Scholastic Art Awards, and it was only my freshman year in high school.
  5. I saved my brother’s life.
  6. I cry every single time I watch It’s a Wonderful Life.
  7. I also cry more watching movies and listening to songs than I do in actual sad situations that go on in my life. Weird.

 

And the nominees are:

  1. How Not to Kill Your Parents
  2. Bee Somebody
  3. Matthew Hansel’s Artwork
  4. Sense to Save
  5. Kids in the Sink
  6. You, Me, && a Skeleton Key
  7. DIY Geekery
  8. Crafty Staci
  9. Craft Schmaft
  10. The Little Creatures
  11. The Cheeky Diva
  12. Lady and the Trash
  13. The Doyle Dispatch
  14. Stitch and Sketch
  15. By Amber’s Hands

 

Congrats to everybody and once again, thank you so much again for the nominations!  I am truly honored and blessed!

Count those Raindrops!
