My FIRST Blog Award!

I am so excited to share that fellow blogger, Colleen, of A Day in the Life of a five Foot Momma gave me my first blog award!  Stop on over at her blog and have a looky.  She has some great stuff to share with everyone!  Thank you Colleen!!!!

By receiving this award, I now must follow the rules that go along with the award...  I must share 7 facts about myself and then share the award with 10 bloggers.  

First, here are  7 facts about me:
1) I love pasta!  (any and all!)
2) All 3 of our children were born in August and are "almost exactly" 2 years apart!
3) My hubby and I have known each other longer than we have been married.
4) I didn't like the Twilight series as much as I thought I would... I LOVED the first book though!
5) I love "plain" vanilla ice cream - I'm boring like that!
6) I am a Gleek! (and my children may be too! ;))
7) I don't think I will be going back to teaching any time soon.... (sigh, too much stuff going on in education that it's so discouraging!)

And now to pass on the award:

1) Heartfelt Balance Handmade Love .  Wonderful recipes, fun activities and art projects.     

2) Mel Dreams Often.   Fun recipes, art project and crafts.

3) jrrsehopecoahing.  Great discussions on raising teenagers (no, I do not have any... yet.. but it's good to get a running start now!)

4) CoolKids.  What a fun site with REAL children featured!

5)  Little Ditties.  Brittany has a great eye for color, style, and fun finds!

6)  Cajunlicious.  It's about food!  Need I say more?!

7) Maria's Handmade Love.  She has some great DIY posts, giveaways, and reviews!

8) Cherished Bliss.  She shows some amazing crafts and inspiration for everyone!
