And now for the Honest ....

Holly over at has bestowed upon me an award. And here it is in all it's glory Photobucket

I am honestly beside myself here gals (yes I am assuming the majority of my readers are gals at this point - and I know that assuming makes an ASS out of U and ME).

I'm shocked over how well my rambles have been received out here in blog-world. It has left me speechless, yet again. So I will simply say THANK YOU HOLLY @ 504!

The rules of this award require me to list 10 things you may not know about me. So here goes nothing:

1. I am a perfectionist at heart. You may not know it by looking at my home or even me, but in my head I have a list of how things should be. (or is that just being anal)

2. I do not let many people get close to me emotionally, but when I do I will give you 110%.

3. Despite the tough exterior, I am a hopeless romantic.

4. I will read anything you put in my hands.

5. I tend to use dear, sweetie, love when talking to people, not because I don't know their name, but because I find it lets them know I care.

6. I'm crossing my legs because I refuse to get up until this post is complete.

7. I believe life is all about relationships. My family and friends are everything to me.

8. I secretly covet shoes and purses - if I only had the money to spend on myself.

9. I've colored my hair since I was 27, not because I want to, but because I have to.

10. I'm afraid now that I am gathering a "following" (wow, why does that sound cult like) I will choke and die (is there such a thing as blog fright?)

I would like to pass this award on to:

A Day in the Crazy Life

The Blue Zoo

Life Laugh Latte

and folks, I would post a couple more, but my bladder is about to burst - so without further ado I bid you farewell!

Thats so cool!
I always want to buy shoes too. But sadly almost all the shoes I buy have some sort of Nickelodeon character on them. LOL

Sarcasm is the better feature.

You are going to have to try sushi. It's not all it's cracked up to be. It's better.

Have a great week!!

I've had sushi a few times. It's not my favorite.

Have a great Sunday

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

How have you avoided sushi? LOL! Congrats on the awards...

kys said...

I have those habits, too. Dark chocolate and Starbucks - yum. I quit the Sweet Tea because I gain weight just be making it.

I love peanut-butter anything, but esp. peanut-butter brownies. We are kindred spirits.
