You like really, really like me!

I have to admit. I'm a little proud here. A little. Let me tell you why. I don't have a lot of followers yet on my blog and really, it's not something I aspire to. I'm just doing this to keep my far away family and friends updated on my AWESOME life!  But today, after many hours of putting off laundry and scrubbing toilets, I decided to mess around on my blog.
I head on over to the 'edit blog' portion of the program and notice that someone left me a comment. It was from Cyndi, (who has a blog of her own: 'Our 6 Ring Circus')  a friend of mine that I have kept in contact with since High School. (BTW, I was going to write 'One of my oldest friends" but I didn't want to offend her by making it sound as if she was OLD!) She told me that I was awarded this:



Wow. ***tear***  What an honor!  Apparently only the cool bloggers get this and now, I am officially, wait for it.........


As I accept this award, I would really love to thank the 4 followers that I do have. Of course, my friend Cyndi who nominated me. Thank you!
Erin, Jill and Ann....what can I say?  Because of you, I am less of a loser than I would be if I had NO followers. So thank you as well.

Now according to the rules, I must reveal seven facts about myself and then pass the award on to seven other bloggers. When I read that I thought, "Seven things about myself?" and then, "Do I know seven bloggers?"  I have to tell you, I'm feeling pretty darn special about myself right now. But I am going to attempt to accomplish goal number 1 - Seven things about myself (I'm sure you all mostly know this but please play along. It isn't fair to the other contestants if you don't.)

1. I have secretly wanted to dye my hair a HOT RED color ever since I started playing Guitar Hero.Oh and I want to rock a 'Faux Hawk" something fierce!

2. On the same theme of GH, I have had dreams where I am up on stage rocking out. And whenever someone mentions the word, 'Karaoke", I secretly giggle and hope they're not kidding.

3. My husband and I enable each other. It's bad. But I like pretty things and he likes me to have pretty things so it works out in the end. (Usually with me owning said pretty things.)

4. If I knew then what I know now about having kids, I would of liked to have started LATER. I have come to realize that Mom really was right about some things in life. Go figure.

5.  I have random nightmares I'm back in Marching Band and I forget my music or drill. I usually wake when I hear, "I can teach dogs to go on paper, why is it so hard to teach you?!" Thanks Scott Heister.

6. I stole something once. Yup. I've got the 'sticky fingers'! Cuff me and throw me in the clinker. I was 7 (maybe) and I went with my Dad to some hardware store. I stole 2 wood plugs-type thingies and shoved them in my dolls clothes. Aren't you proud Mom and Dad? I felt so horrible after that I never did it again. But then again, how bad could I of really of felt if this is the first time I'm telling my parents about it? Just don't ground me!

7. Finally, the last fact that you need to know about me is that I consider myself REALLY blessed. Things happen for a reason, you meet the people you're supposed to and you make the most of what you have. I am LUCKY to have my wonderful husband and kids. I am LUCKY to have such a great supporting family in my parents and siblings and I am LUCKY to have such wonderful friends around the world. There are days when the pep isn't peppy, but silly me, I try to look on the bright side.

 Okay as far as the seven bloggers I know, well I really have to give FULL kuddo's to my friend Jill. She is the one that started me on blogging. Came over to my house to help me start up my blog and taught me how to upload the pictures to it. She is really the reason I blog. So Jill - You are the Wind Beneath My Wings.  And I pass on to you...'The Beautiful Blogger Award.' Love ya hooker!


  1. Awww, really? I just saw this. Thank you so much! Now what do I do?

  2. Now you save the award pic, post your own blog, tagging me as the one who gave you the award and finally list 7 things about yourself and then award the award to 7 other bloggers. :) Easy as cake!
    Of course you're my blog goddess so you're the only one who got my award. Showing you the love Jilly!

  3. I have been trying to become a fan but it won't let me!! What am I doing wrong?!?

  4. Blog goddess? Wow! I've never been a goddess to anything so you are really making me feel good! You rock Stacy!!!!!
