Thanks for the award!

I have some great readers!!!

I love you guys.

I'm glad you decided to take the time to read about my little space in the world.

Two of those wonderful readers gave my little blog an award.  Thank you ladies!

Tesa of 2 Wired 2 Tired and Crystal of Crystal's Craft Spot have both given me the beautiful blogger award.  Thank you so much Tesa and Crystal!


There are rules with accepting this award.  
The Rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award and insert a link to their blog.
2. Pass on the award to about 15 other bloggers who you recently discovered and think are great!
3. Contact the other bloggers and let them know they have been chosen for this award.
4. Say 7 things about yourself.

To start out, here are things about me:

1.  I love reality TV - American Idol, So you think you can Dance, Survivor

2.  My new hobby is couponing.  I just started in December when I discovered a great couponing blog (see list below).  I spend a couple of hours a week printing and clipping coupons and from that effort, I have been able to cut out over $100 a month in our grocery bill.  I'm pretty proud of myself over that.

3.  Scrapbooking is my old hobby.  I still love it, but don't find myself doing it as much as I used to.  When I do decide to work out on, I usually do digital scrapbooking.

4.  I'm allergic to chocolate (and oranges, cauliflower, mustard and watermelon).  I know, I'm weird.

5.  I hate to have the bottoms of my feet touched!

6.  I love musicals and any movies with dancing, even if it doesn't have singing.

(Wow, it's hard to come up with 7 new and interesting things about myself.)
7.  I love to play Trivial Pursuit, but can never find anyone who will play it with me :(.

Now, to pick 13 blogs (I decided to do 13 instead of 15.  Rules are meant to be broken, right?):

1.  My Aussie Blogger Friend - 5 Minutes Just for Me
2.  My nutty Blogger Friend - A Nut in a Nutshell
3.  My FAVORITE couponing blog - Hip 2 Save
4.  A wonderful Christian Mommy blog - It's Almost Naptime
5.  A blog that cracks me up - Nanny Goat in Panties
6.  Great craft ideas - Somewhat Simple
7.  An amazing Story - The Journey
8.  My favorite hairstyle blog - A Princess and her Hair
9.  For home improvement ideas - Thrifty Decor Chick
10.  Life with Triplets - Triplets, Who Knew?
11.  Awesome family blog - We are THAT family
12.  Saving Tips - We, the Savers
13.  Craft ideas and mommy humor - Controlling my Chaos

Go check 'em out and give 'em some bloggy love.


  1. How funny... Bruce absolutely cannot stand to have his feet touched. Early in our marriage I used to think it was funny to taunt him. I have since learned the wisdom of staying away from his feet.

  2. Yay, congrats!! Yes, I am a reality tv luva too...( but I do get burned out some)...And I so wish I could get into couponing. Its getting more and more common~ I just cannot find the time!! (I know sounds like a cop out, lol!) But good for you! Cute post! xoxo LA(

  3. Congrats on your awards! I just commented in your above post and let you know you won another one!

    I can't believe you are allergic to chocolate! Ugh. That must stink. My ex-brother-in-law was deathly allergic to chocolate, he would go into anaphlatic shock. Crazy.

  4. Nobody will play Trivial Pursuit with you because if you don't win you get really upset.

    You're welcome. I introduced you to Hip2Save.

  5. Congratulations on your award! Thank you so much for mine!!! I've missed you while I was gone!

    I'm a scrapbooker too, and I'm hoping when I move that I'll have more time to spend doing that! But, I don't think I can advance to digital. I still love paper scrapbooking!
