One Lovely Blog Award

I am very humbled and honored to have been nominated by Jamie at Grandmother Musings for the One Lovely Blog Award!  It is always so nice to be recognized for the work that is put into your blog.  Grandmother Musings is a very lovely (pun intended) blog that covers a wide array of topics from recipes to crafts to some really great inspirational posts that really uplift your day.  We really appreciate her support of Beyond The Green Door and taking the time to nominate us!

The Rules:

1.     Give credit to the awesome person who nominated you.  🙂

2.    Describe 7 things about yourself.

3.    Nominate 15 other bloggers.

Ok, 7 Things:

1.  Love the Harry Potter series — both books and movies.  Own the complete set of both and have watched and read them several times.

2.  Originally from Wisconsin and lived my entire life in the Midwest until moving to Texas 4 years ago.

3.  Really looking forward to starting to brew our own beer within the next month or so.  And then once we get the hang of that, we will start to make wine.

4.  Have spent most of my life with a fear of birds (attacked by chickens when I was about 10) but am now really finding a sense of peace and enjoyment when watching them at the feeders from our back porch.

5.  Couldn’t live without being able to eat cheese.  Perhaps not “technically” but I would swear it to be true!

6.  Love dogs and can’t wait for us to get a couple.  The plan is a Boxer rescue in the next 6 months and then a Scottish Terrier puppy down the road.

7.  Currently re-watching the Buffy the Vampire series with “L” (who has never before seen it)


There are so many wonderful blogs out there and I truly love following so many that it is always hard to choose.  However, my 15 nominees are (in no particular order):

Putney Farms

Wife Meets Life

The Busy Thistle

Maggie’s One Butt Kitchen

Life In The Foothills


Dogs, Dishes & Decor

Boozed & Infused

Bringing Europe Home

I encourage you all to check out these most lovely blogs!  And thanks again to Grandmother Musings for the wonderful nomination!

      Of course! And yeah, love Buffy….love Joss Wheaton in general. Next step is “L” having me watch Firefly after we are done with Buffy 🙂

        Yeah, I have a feeling I’m going to love it too! 😉 Shouldn’t be too long before we start it since we are just in the beginning of season 6 of Buffy and every time we watch an episode, “L” wants to watch another one! lol!

      Cheese and Harry Potter — it’s all we need in the world! 🙂

        So true! Wisconsin cheese curds are evidence of a benevolent God. Do you know who originated the One Lovely Blog Award? Is there a site we should link back to?

        I’m not sure about what to link back to with the lovely blog award. I looked around and doesn’t seem to be one… Everyone seems to just link back to who nominated them and all it a day.
        And yes, cheese curds — fresh and fried — are about the best thing ever!

    Hi Kenley, thanks for the award! I feel like we are kindred spirits – I’m also a fan of Buffy, dogs and cheese….mmmmmm, cheese! Going to check out all those other blogs now (it’s a rainy Sunday, perfect for browsing). Thanks!
