Also, WELCOME new followers! So happy to have you. I hope you enjoy what you read and I hope you give me feedback, which is always a gift.
So without further ado, I would like to thank my family, for entertaining themselves while I type feverishly on the computer, Sidney for planting the seed to do this to begin with, Blogger for annoying me with your limitations now that I "get it" more, Rabbit for my hot design, Hal for paving the way to a new, better, I own it myself blog if I could just pull the trigger on what I want to name it, Old Man Winter for finally giving a girl a break from his wrath, and the following lovely award presenters:
Beautiful Blogger from Autumn and Alicia (who both have beautiful blogs themselves - don't miss out on them!). I'm supposed to tell you 7 things about me:
- I think buying new shoes is cruel and unusual punishment.
- I learned how to fill my own gas tank before my mother did.
- I owned a horse (Arabian mix) for 5 years as a child.
- My 20th high school reunion was last summer.
- My lips love cake, cookies and ice cream. My thighs do not.
- I like root canals more than exercise.
- I love being awake at 6am, but would never, ever do it if That Puppy weren't waking me up every day.
The You're going places, baby Award from Miss Angie - because, according to the award giver, the things I blog about will be talked about in 10 years. Why, thank you Miss Angie! How flattering! My assignment - answer "where do I want to be in 10 years?"
Hmmm, I'll be on the verge of 50, with a Senior in High School and a 7th grader. Literally, I hope to be getting ready to take the mac Daddy of all Spring Break vacations ever, as it might be our last full family one. Sniff, sob. Professionally, I would like to no longer be a volunteer and be bringin' home some bacon myself, preferably through writing and not hog butchering (get it?). Personally? Still happily married, sleeping past 6am (finally) and never having run a marathon (b/c I know my limitations).
One Lovely Blog - from A Mom After God's Own Heart - this one is for newly discovered blogs - and thank YOU for discovering me! I'm happy I discovered YOU!
Sunshine Award - from a Short Southern Momma - - seriously, I love that name and I love her blog! True southern charm.
And last, but not least, Kevin, for putting me in his Favorite Link Friday post - TWO WEEKS RUNNING. He has a great blog worth the follow.
Thanks all! I am honored, humbled and thankful to each of you. I'm also supposed to give awards out myself, but alas, I have to punt this morning. I think I would be giving out close to 30 if I did them all and I just don't have that in me. BUT, for those of you who gave them to me, you ROCK IT and if you're a new follower and want one of these shinies, by all means - take it and say you got if from me! Let's spread the love around.
