Natasha Peter over at Epic Mommy Adventures gave me a huge honor earlier this week. She nominated That’s Mashed Up for The Very Inspiring Bloggers Award! This award is designed for bloggers give to other bloggers to say “Hey, I see you–and you inspire me!”

very-inspring-award   No, I didn’t win a car, a boat or a trip–I won something better: a boost! That’s Mashed Up is a young blog, and I work hard on it. And it’s a LOT of work. However, I love blogging. To be recognized by someone like Natasha (whose blog is super awesome, incase you haven’t heard about her) really made me feel like I am moving in the right direction!  

Here are the rules if you ever get nominated:
  • Thank and link to the person who nominated you.
  • List the rules and display the award.
  • Share seven facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 15 other amazing blogs and comment on their posts to let them know they have been nominated
  • Optional: display the award logo on your blog and follow the blogger who nominated you

    So first, THANK YOU Natasha!! Now, here are 7 facts about me, Mrs. Mashed Up, that you probably don’t know :-)

  1. I am an educator. I’ve taught all kinds of things professionally. Right now I work with young children with autism.
  2. I’m married to Mr. Mashed Up, and he is a DJ, drummer, and runs an entertainment company.
  3. I love to dance, and have performed tango and salsa live for a few events.
  4. Baby Mash’s real-life name is inspired by a comicbook–because yes, we’re that BIG of nerds!
  5. Speaking of nerds, I love cosplay!
  6. I’m fluent in American Sign Language.
  7. I’m afraid of spiders and cockroaches–because ewww!!

And here are my nominees:

  I hope these fabulous “very inspiring bloggers” will have a smile on their face when they realize that for one reason, or another, each of them inspires me to be a better parent, blogger, or person.
