Happy Me

Guess what I got?
My FIRST blog awardS ever!!! That's right, plural -- I got TWO of them!!

Thank you Annie of Santiago Twin Girls, sooooo much,
for the 'Our Lovely Blog' award

and for the 'Gorgeous Blogger' award!

You are such a sweet friend to think of me. Wow!! This sure has put a little jump in my step this morning : )

The rules for accepting the 'Gorgeous Blogger' award are to share six things you don't know about me, and to pass the award on to six other Gorgeous Bloggers.

Six Things You Don’t Know About Me:

1. I can not stand onions. The sight, the smell, the taste, the texture . . . but I'm trying not to make them into too big of a deal (I'm actually starting to eat them if they're cut in tiny pieces and mixed in with other food). I'm really trying to be a good role model, I don't want Ella and Zoe to grow up not liking a food that's in most everything made.

2. I LOVE LOVE LOVE a Good Sandwich, that someone else has made. Minus the onions, of course. I think a well-made sandwich quite possibly could be the perfect food.

3. Tom and I traveled a lot before we became parents. We've been to many of the states here in the United States, a few places in Canada, all over Mexico, a couple of the beautiful countries in Central America, a handful of the gorgeous Caribbean Islands, Puerto Rico (love it there --Annie!!) as well as England, France, Switzerland, Italy, Sicily, Egypt and Northern Africa. When Ella and Zoe are older we plan on traveling with them too, and hope to show them at least Egypt, Italy/Sicily, Mexico and as many of the beautiful islands that we can.

4. Some day I will also go on a cruise around the Greek Islands and visit Ireland. Someday.

5. I really enjoy cooking and trying new recipes, but I'm not very good at it. Domestic stuff does not come naturally to me -- but I am good at never giving up and trying to keep a positive attitude : )

6. I love watching scary movies (the scarier the better) even though they'll keep me awake at night and can give me scary dreams.

And now to award 6 (actually 7) other Gorgeous Bloggers....

Ooooo, thank you for the award! I will definitely post it soon!
To answer your question, Debi at Who Says Eight is Enough sent me an email regarding it. Do you know Debi - she is on my blog roll just in case. She has a post about it today with links. I signed up yesterday and had no problems. Feel free to email me at with any questions (hopefully, I can help!)

Annie said...

Haha, I laugh because your fist items are at a large font and the last small.

So glad you like Puerto Rico, maybe some day we meet.

Ok, now I have a question:
You give and a award, I'm a little lost and my head is out of service,haha.
