An award!

Somebody gave me an award!  I thought that was nice.  You know those people that can pick up a piece of string, a broken window, some unwanted clothing and a glue gun and make something totally beautiful and useful and amazing?  I'm not one of them.

But this lady is.  Recently, I stumbled across Roundabout.  I can't even remember how I got there.  I get clicking away and suddenly I find myself in a fun place, so I hit follow, and here we are.  Anyway, she is creative and seems to be able to make what she pictures in her head work out in real life, which is where I struggle.  (I am making myself try to fix this little wool hat that I was making for my baby.  It looks really bad, but that's why I made it for her.  She's not big enough to complain yet.)  Anyway, she passed this award to me.

The rules are:
Share 7 things about yourself
Award 15 new blogs that I'm following

Okay, so seven things about me...

1-I have a bad habit of starting projects and never finishing them.
2-I am the youngest of six kids.
3-I hate, hate, hate making phone calls, especially when you have to call to straighten something out, like insurance.
4-I really want a truck.   The minivan just doesn't light me up inside.
5-I really really like Dr. Pepper.  When we go out for ice cream, I just get a Pepper.
6-I have quit putting the books back on the shelf for my baby to pull off again.  Maybe she will decide she doesn't want them on the floor and start putting them back on the shelf.
7-I'm out of Dr. Pepper.

I find this one kind of funny because you would think that the "stylish" award would be for stylish blogs, but no, just for new blogs.  :)  I feel silly giving awards to people.  I'm just little me, you know?  Who cares what I have to say?  So, I decided to break the rules a little.  Not only am I not going to do all 15, I'm going to award them to whoever and for whatever I want.  If the blog police take me away, you will know why.

I nominate...
Mamas Minutia because she has a way of writing that makes everyday things so stinkin' entertaining.

Life on the (funny) farm  Okay, this one is new, so I guess I'm not that much of a rebel.  She's fun to read.

Life with Jack and Jill  -not a new blog, but I still like her style.

Bloom  because she has a picture of sheep on her banner.  That and I like her style of writing.

Thrillingly Thrifty  Also new to me.  I like the make something new from something old ideas.

My taco salad is gone and I need to move on in my day, so I'll leave it at that.

Have a fabulously stylish day!


  1. Taco salad - sounds good!

    Can you think of someone else more deserving than I am, I have such a hard time with getting them up. Nice of you to think of me though!

  2. Congratulations on your award! Very well deserved, my friend. Enjoy!

  3. Don't worry about it Sharon. That's why I feel silly giving them out. Sometimes it's just more trouble than it's worth.

  4. I felt silly giving out the award too.I agree, too much work. I guess the good part is spreading the word about a some of the blogs you like :)
