Stylish Blogger Award

Oh my goodness!  Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would ever receive any type of blog award.  My friend Laurie Gibson from Laurie's Rubber Room blessed me with this Stylish Blogger Award!  I am beyond speechless!  Thank you Laurie, for this amazing honor!

For accepting this, there are a couple of things I need to do.  First, I need to tell you 8 things about myself that you may not know. So, here goes:
  1. At my first Stampin' Up! workshop I bought a stamp set and wheel combo that was on special.  It sat in my closet untouched for 2 years before I was reintroduced to (and hooked on) Stampin' Up!
  2. I was a full-time working mom for the first 8 years of my daughter's life and the first 5 years of my son's life.  While had the utmost respect for the women who stayed home with their kids, I never thought I'd be happy as a stay-at-home mom.  Boy was I wrong!  I hope I never have to go outside my home to work again!  I love being here for my kids whenever they need me.
  3. I work at home as an independent contractor for a transcripton company and I LOVE it!  I go to work every day in my pajamas. 
  4. My husband and I spent a grand total of 30 days together before we were married!  We met when he was home on leave (he's in the military and was stationed 7 hours away from where I lived), were engaged 3 months after we met and married 7 months after that.  He was stationed in Korea, came home on his mid-tour (approximately half-way through) so we could get married and then headed back to Korea to finish his tour.  As of next month we'll be married 18 years!
  5. I can't carry a tune, but I will sing along with my favorite songs at the top of my lungs and I don't care who hears me!  I'm a firm believer that it's okay to embarass my kids in public ;)
  6. I really want to learn to use my husband's DSLR camera so I can take amazing pictures.
  7. I am training to run a 5k.  I've started over three times already!  However, I am 100% certain that I WILL DO IT!! 
  8. I do not think I have a creative bone in my body!
Now I have to pass this award onto 8 other "Stylish Bloggers". Here are my choices:

Gilda Fellows

Mary Rindal

Alesha Walls

Jenn Picard

Danielle Daws

Dannie Graves


Heather Summers
