Hey Guys!

Wow! I’ve been having some great times over here in my little corner of the web this week. First I was featured at Serenity Now for my burlap bubble wreath tutorial AND now Terry from These Peas Taste Funny sent this Versatile Blogger Award my way!! Shout out to Terry! THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!I am so excited to have received this award and feel so honored! Make sure you check out her site especiallyf her cute craft for fall!

Here’s how the award works:

1.  Thank the person that gave you the aware & link back to them in your post.
2.  Share 7 things about yourself.
3.  Pass this award to a few other recently discovered bloggers.

So, 7 things about me.  I’m going to aim for slightly offbeat with these.

1.  I cannot smell skunk. I only know we are passing one on the road because of everyone else’s reactions!
2.  Lover Boy and I dated when I was 16.
3.  When we dated then, we picked out our son’s name…even though our relationship only lasted 35 days.
4.  We have three of the most spoiled dogs in the world. A Weimaraner, Boxer and Miniature Daschund
5.  I want to own a big ol’ farm and have horses and chickens and let the dogs be in charge!
6.  I sweep and wash my floors every single night…otherwise with 2 kids and 3 dogs my house would be even messier than it normally is.
7. Lover Boy and I are obsessed with traveling. In retirement I foresee us having a big motor home and traveling the country.
*8. (I just had to add one more) Little Sparrow, my signing name was my Indian Princess name when I was younger. Little Finch (my daughter) was named by my dad, Flying Eagle. Little Finch’s real name, Tamaroa was our Indian Princess’s Tribe name. I LOVED Indian Princesses and all of my lifelong friends from it (Hi Nicki (Golden Star) & Becky (Red Bird)!!)

And now to the good part, sharing the love.  Please check out these great sites that I have just recently discovered:

Christina’s Adventures

Thanks again Terry for the awesome award!!

I know that I had promised pictures of what we were working on this weekend…and I have them, I just need to finish up the posts! Little Finch had her first day of preschool yesterday and came home REALLY sick. Last night was horrible for her; fever, throwing up, runny nose…so it’s coming. I promise. (I haven’t even sent the grandparents pictures of her orientation form last week!! I’m way behind!!)

Thanks for stopping by today everyone!
