Awwwwww...An Award for Me!

I love prizes!

Must be that part of me that gets distracted easily by sparkly things :)

My new blogger friend Paula at Queen of My Castle gave me this award:

The sad thing is that she gave me this award on April 4...I am just now acknowledging her sweet gift on
April 17...It took me 13 days to say Thanks!  My grandmother, mother, aunts, and every other female member of my Southern family would be ashamed!!!!!

Please forgive this travesty, Paula ;)

The rules for this award are:

1. Thank and link to the person that gave you the
2.  Pass this award on to 15 bloggers who you recently discovered and think are fantastic.
3.  Contact said blogs and let them know they've won.
4.  State 7 things about yourself.

Seven Things About Me:

1.  Home is where my heart is my sanctuary...I strive daily to keep it the most relazing, peaceful place in our lives.

2.  I have to have a window in my office.  I would lose my mind if I didn't.  I need to know there is another world out there waiting on me.

3.  I cannot make it anywhere on time.  I'm not lazy...I just have my own concept of time.

4. I LOVE a clean house...but my house is not always clean. 

5.  I'm a magazineaholic.  I justify all my magazine subscriptions by sharing my magazines with my students once I've finished reading them.

6.  I love to shop...but I cannot shop when there are 80 gazillion other people shopping at the same time.  I have never and will never shop on Black Friday or any other day such as that.  I would probably kill someone :)

7.  I am a Partner in Hope and an otherwise fanatic supporter of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN, but I cannot read any of the literature they send me nor watch any of the tv specials...I just can't.  I can't even talk about it.  I will have to get over this if I want to be able to make more of a difference in the fight against pediatric cancers.  I'm working on it.

I'm passing this award on to:

Taylor at The Lumberjack's Wife...because she makes me laugh out loud :) every. single. post.

Jennifer at Fiddle Dee Dee...because she cooks with cast iron ;) and we Southern girls have to stick together.

Carson at 7 MSN Ranch...because I want burros like George and Alan in my backyard!

Jen at Cabin Fever...because of her story on Friday, April 16.

Melanie at Coupon Goddess...because the deals she gets absolutely amaze me.

Kate at Chronicles of a Country Girl...because her blog postings and photographs are the epitome of peacefulness.

Danni at On the Way to Critter Farm...because she was brave enough to leave a high tech job and return to the farmlife she loves.

Shanna at Layla Grace...because even though I never knew her, I miss Layla too.


  1. I love reading these lists. I too, love a clean house, but rarely does mine sparkle.
    I can't watch those St. Jude specials either. Who am I kidding? I can't watch a Soldier return home or leave without crying buckets. I cry at the drop of a hat.
    No worries on the thank you. I'm from the south and love all that courtesy etc, but in today's world, it doesn't always happen quickly.

  2. Thank you for the award! Yay!
    I can never get anywhere on time.
    So tragic.
