I've Been Flattered!

Last week I received two blog awards from Jill at her "Controlling My Chaos" blog. You remember her. She's the one where I got the great Halloween treat bag toppers from for Allison's class. See, I knew you would remember her. Anyway, she flattered my ego and presented me with two blog awards. I know! Isn't that cool? And here I thought my family and friends were the only ones interested in what I had to say! Since Jill presented them to me, I think it would be bad blog etiquette to pass them back to her. She is, however, one of my top favorite blogs. She always has a wealth of information and good ideas to share. I love her sense of humor and can totally relate to her sarcasm and wit. Although her brother may not find her funny, she cracks me up! I'm certain if we lived in the same city, we would be great girlfriends.
Thanks Jill! I'm honored!
For this award:
1. You have to pass it on to 5 other fabulous blogs in a post.
2. You have to list 5 of your fabulous addictions in the post.
3. On your post of receiving this award, make sure you include the person that gave you the award and link it back to them.
Okay, here is my list of my 5 Fabulous Addictions:
1. Iced, Sugar Free, Fat Free, Hazelnut Lattes from Sheetz...although I did have a hot one yesterday because it's cold and snowing here!
2. Taking pictures.
3. Looking for new decorating ideas for our home. I'm needing a change and new ones are coming in 2009!
4. Organizing, decluttering and simplifying. I'm on a mission to rid us of things that we don't need or use and utilize every inch of this home before I redecorate next year.
5. Blogs and blogging...duh!

Here are the rules:
1. Write seven strange things about yourself. They interest us all!
2. Tag six other people at the end of your post.
3. Visit everyone that you have tagged and leave a comment on their blog to let them know that they have been tagged.

Although I am an open book and you probably already know everything about me, here is my list of Seven Strange Things About Myself.
1. My eyes are blue but one quarter of my right eye is brown and only my left eye needs a corrective lens.
2. If I pull into a parking spot and my van is crooked in the space, I will back-up until it's perfectly straight.
3. If I come home at night and I take my bra off, it's not going back on and I am not going back out for anything! Once it's off, I'm in for the night.
4. I love going to Goodwill and finding treasures to repurpose. The only problem with that is I have too many projects to do and there isn't enough days in the year to do them!
5. I like peanut butter on apples. I don't think this is strange but Curtis thinks it is.
6. Speaking of food, I LOVE bacon and ketchup on white bread sandwiches! My Mom used to make them for us when we went on the school picnic every year. Curtis thinks this is strange too.
7. I love to read cookbooks!

Okay, Now I'm supposed to pass these on to a total of 11 people. Jill said she's a cheater so she passed both awards on to six. I'm not big on cheating but I'll call it being a rebel and pass both on to six too!
Congrats Ladies! You are my 6 in no particular order!
1. Linda at Reminisce...and this and that. Her blog reflects her love of life, family and God...and if you are lucky when you click on her link, you'll get a glimpse of her adorable granddaughter, Emolyn.
2. Nora at ndg A very busy Mom and wife who manages to find time to be creative and make some awesome things...all while going back to school.
3. Deb over at Garage Sale Gal. Okay. Do I need to say more about why I like this blog? If you still need help knowing why....read the title of her blog!
4. Benita at On Eagle's Wings. I've "known" Benita for several years. She's a talented scrapbooker and been doing awesome at shedding some unwanted pounds. Way to go girl!
5. Kim at Life is a Highway. She's another scrapbooking gal I've "known" for several years. She's also a Mom to four and lives in sunny Florida who I just may surprise one day with a knock on her door!
6. Sophia at Sentiments by Sophia. Her blog is one that I check every day. She's a Mom to 6 and a Grandmother to 2 and makes the most of every minute of every day. I don't know how she gets it all done all the time!
Have Fun!

I'm glad you put your blog awards up. I enjoyed reading about you. I too, will always back up so that I'm not crooked in a parking space.

What's wrong with Curtis? Doesn't he know that peanut butter and apples just go together. Sheesh!
