I was just graciously awarded
a Beautiful Blogger award

by Leslie of Home-Grown Love
and I would like say a very warm thank you Leslie,
for thinking of me.

The requirements for accepting this award are as follows:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award.
2. Pass this award along to 15 bloggers you've recently discovered and whom you think are fantastic!
3. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.
4. Share seven (7) things about yourself.

Seven things
about me:

1. I was a teenager before I could go for a sleep over at a friends and spend the "whole" night.

2. I still haven't conquered my nervousness about driving, and plan all my outings for early morning when traffic is light, and I also map out what stops I have to make ahead of time to avoid making left turns.

3. I detest wearing long sleeves and high necklines so chances are, nine times out of ten, I will be wearing a tank top even during the winter.

4. I love autumn, winter and spring...summer...not so much...and if I could skip summer altogether, I probably wouldn't miss it.

5. I cannot for the life of me understand how someone can wear a thong and claim they are comfortable.

6. I have zero musical talent...can't sing a note...not one...nope...nadda...nothing...

7. I like to break rules. As much as I love receiving blogging awards, I have one a hell of a time coming up with seven things to tell about myself and an equally hard time choosing fifteen bloggers to pass them on to, which is why I am breaking the rules and cutting it down to facts about me and seven new blogger awards... just to make it even...tit for tat!

Seven Bloggers I've recently found that inspire me are;

Autumn's Seasonings

Joy in Being

Love's Nest

Memoirs of a Modern Day Mumma

bountiful living

Dandelion Seeds and Dreams


Pop in and say Hi! I think you will enjoy them.


  1. I haven't figured out the whole a "Thong is more comfortable" either! I even tried one once and was like ewwwwwww nasty!

  2. thank you for the beautiful blogger award!!!!

  3. Congrats on the award! I love the Olympians and bet there are gold-winning smiles on their faces during their "training runs" today:)

  4. A humble thank you for acknowledging my little blog ... and also for giving me permission to break some rules myself (as I'd been thinking about the 7 bloggers i would nominate and then i re-read what you wrote!)

    by-the-way ... fantastic list! i am so with you on the thong thing :)

  5. You are so right about thongs! I don't get it either. But I'm the opposite on long sleeves and high collars, I wear them all the time.

    Congrats on your well deserved award. I enjoyed getting to know you better.
