Beautiful Blogger time!

Barbara so kindly nominated me for the Beautiful Blogger Award.. (blushes)

Here are the directions.

• Thank the person who nominated you for this award

• Copy the award and post it in your blog

• Link to the blog of the person who nominated you

• Tell seven interesting things about yourself

• Nominate seven bloggers

• Post links to the blogs of your nominees

Well here goes - seven things you may not know about me:

1) I love used bookstores. You can find me there all the time, and I own hundreds of books.

2) I was on the yearbook committee in high school, and loved it. My teacher was this cool hippie with Hendrix posters up all over the room. Loved him.

3). I have two boys, Chase and Kayden = *swoon*

4). I have 5 dogs, 2 cats, 2 parrots, 5 goats, and 1 chicken.

5) I have a lamp fetish, I have so many lamps, they are all over the house..I am constantly rotating them around from room to room. I think that lamplight is so much more inviting and soft than ceiling lights.

6) I love the beach. I love it so much that I buy a season pass to park. Living by the ocean is so wonderful.

7). I had cottage cheese for the first time when I started the lap-band process, I had managed to avoid my whole life!

So here are my nominations -

She is doing so well and I love reading her blog!

Love her writing style, so witty!

  1. Ooh I have a little guy named Chase too! :0) And also agree with lamp light being 110% better than ceiling lights! Less harsh light makes everything a pinch more pretty! :)

  6. Thank you so much! I think you are doing so great and I love reading your blog. I thought I had alot of pets with 3 dogs but you have me beat by a long shot! Kudos to you for eating cottage cheese, I know it is great for me but still can't bring myself to eat it often.
