Award Time!

Waww...Last week I was given and award by the lovely Fabulous Florida Mommy! Thank you so much! getting an award is fab but from somebody like you even better!!!

So, here are the instructions:
1. List seven things that make me awe-summm!!!
2. Pass the award on to seven bloggers, I read religiously.
3. Tag those 7 bloggers.
4. Don't forget to link the Queen that tagged us.
5. Copy the pic and put it into your sidebar.

So here are my 7 Awe-Summm things (which I am also interpreting as 7 random things about me):

1. I declined a VP position in corporate America to stay at home and raise my kids...As if quitting my job at that point wasn't hard enough I then had another company offered me VP  for Latin America...I felt I was being tested on my decision!
2. Being a stay at home mom is the most difficult /challenging and rewarding job I had ever done! It did not come naturally to me but I embraced it with all my heart!
3. I have been cutting magazines with fashion/ tips/ recipes/ places to travel since I can remmeber ( at leat 7 or 8 years old) ..My grandma used to collect Hola from Spain (the Spanish hello) and I guess that's where it all started!
4. I am so proud of my group of girlfriends... I treasure friendship and friends a lot! I could not have made it without all my friends...and is one of the things that makes me really proud when I look at my friends and realize that some of them have been around since I was 4 years old...they are spread all over the world....and they feel my life with love, hugs and compliments...they are my best mirror...specially in those days that I need a pick me up!
5. When I was 15 I lived in Idaho for 6 months...yeap I am potato girl!
6. When my son was 3 months old he was diagnosed with hypothonia after a bad reaction to the vaccines and they told me that he might not walk until he was 2 years old maybe...clinically he showed a lot of signs of autism...but I put the battle of my life...I travel, read, study, I did everything my motherly instinct told me...Mateo walked when he was 11 months old...and last week he was clinically and developmentally out of any and all risks...as the therapist told me.."Mommy you did good..case closed..he is free!!!!!!!!!
7. Even though I don't hold it against me...I love to be as fabulous as possible, as a mother, wife, friend, host, citizen...I hold a high standard for myself and I would not have it any other way!!!

wuawww I really do not like talking about me..but once I started....OMG maybe I got to personal..maybe i open a up a little bit!! If anything I have learned that there is no limit in life to what we want to accomplish....

Here are some of the blog that inspire me to be live a fabulous life....

Wow! Took courage to say no to those jobs, and you should be honored for it! No matter what we decide as women - stay at home, go to work - it's never an easy choice, especially when your career seemed to catapult to more success. Glad you got recognition with this Queen award!

Guau.... ¡QUÉ SORPRESA!! I love this award for many reasons: who is giving it to me (I'm addicted to your blog) and the amazing blogs in the list. I'm so flattered!!!
