Stylish Blog Award

Next week (May 2, 2011) I will be posting an interview with Author, Rebecca Besser.  Rebecca is on an amazing journey and making a bit of headway in the writing world.  Be sure to stop by and check it out. 

Surprise!  I am the winner of the Stylish Blogger Award.  Thank you so very much Kelly Hashway of: http://www.kellyhashway.com for giving me this award.  Its such a pretty one too.

For this award I have to share 7 things about myself:

  1. I have a fruit orchard that consists of nine trees:  Two peach, two pears, two cherries, and three plums.  I would have apples too, but the deer just wont let me.  I keep buying the trees and the deer keep eating them to death. 
  2. I used to be afraid of the Big Bad Wolf.  As a child, I swore he lived in my house and was just waiting to eat me, like he did the three little pigs. 
  3. I married my high school sweetheart.  Not right away of course, we had to do a bit of growing up first.
  4. I get annoyed when my teenager’s friends ask if I am her sister.  Seriously, it gets under my skin.  I’m sure there are some people that think this is a great ego thing, but I like being a mom.
  5. I am the clumsiest thing you will ever meet.  Don’t stand too close, I may just fall over for no apparent reason and take you down with me. 
  6. When I was little, I had white blond hair.  Truly WHITE, like a cotton ball.  I wish I still did, but as you should all know, I am firmly a brunette in my old age. 
  7. Family vacations as a child consisted of canoeing down the Muskingum River for 6-7 days, sleeping in tents, cooking over a fire, the works.  When I was about 16, I watched the movie Deliverance… had a hard time with the vacation after that. 
Okay, so it's time to pass on the award. Here are the Stylish Bloggers I'm awarding:
