Stylish Blogger Award

I would like to thank  Shawn Becker  at The Becker's (Shawn and Bill)  
for honoring me with the Stylish  Blogger Award!

Rules for accepting this award are:
1. Thank & link back to the person who awarded you this.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pay it forward to 15 recently discovered great bloggers.

4. Contact those bloggers and tell them about their blogging award. are my 7 things....actually I enlisted the help of my husband for this.

1) I am extremely passionate about things that I care about
2) I love to laugh and have a good sense of humor
3) I absolutely love Rachael Ray and would love nothing more than to kick back in her cabin in the Adirondacks eating a "delish" meal, chatting and laughing the night away. (Oh and Oprah is welcome to join us!) 
4) My husband just said I am "quite hyper" that would translate into being a lunatic
5) I met my husband online (but not in a dating site!!) He was attracted to my screen name at the you would LOVE to know what that was huh? lol.
6) We don't need a GPS because I have a great sense of direction!
7) I have a super addictive personality, yeah...bad habits LOVE me!!

Now it is MY turn to pay it forward!! I was supposed to pick 15 blogs that I absolutely LOVE and you know what? I cannot do that. I love MANY MORE than just 15. I know how I feel when I read a blog list like that from people that I follow and see that I am left out. I don't want to do that to anyone. Go to the list of "Blogs That I Follow" and if I am following them, then they are a GREAT BLOG!! I also follow a number of blogs that are not affiliated with Blogger and to avoid hurting anyone's feelings I couldn't even begin to start listing them all because if I try to list them I will inevitably, inadvertently leave someone out!

So....if you are on Blogger and on my "List Of Blogs That I Follow" that means I love ya! If you are not on Blogger and you see my comments or see me on your email subscribe list that means I LOVE YOU TOO!!!

If any of the above applies to you, grab the award from my blog and link back to me in your post in the first sentence.

I just love too many of you both on Blogger and off to hurt anybody's feelings!!

Honoring Those Who Serve Our Country, Happy Veteran's Day
