WooHoo My Very First Blog Award

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! To my friend Tessica over at I Hate When He Steals the Covers for the Beautiful Blogger Award.  Secretly, I've been covetting something like this to dress up my page and boost my ego for some time now. ;)  Tessica and I went to school together to be English teachers at Radford University, and we have just recently been reunited via the blog world.  So fun!

Anyways, on to my "Acceptance Speech." 
Here are the requirements:
1. Thank & link to the person who gave you the award - DONE!
2. Pass this award on to 15 bloggers you've recently discovered & think are fantastic.
3. Contact said blogs and let them know they've won - CHECK!
4. State 7 things about yourself. 

So... FIFTEEN blogs huh?  And, what exactly does "recently" mean?
Here are some friends and favorites worth checking out:
Katie @ Loves of Life
Nikki @ Design Blooms
Crystal @ Little Bit Funky
Lauren @ Lovely Life of Lauren
Abby @ Babbling Abby
Erika @ Something Beautiful
Allyson @ The Blackwoods (My No FaceBook Feb. partner in crime!)
Elizabeth @ A Wedding Story
Lindsey @ We are Schuberts
Amanda @ Weaving Our Webb One Day at a Time
Ashley @ The Schnabel's (What is it with me and "Sch" friends?)
Holly @ Life in the Fun Lane
Melissa @ Stafford Stories
Sonja @ For the Love of Stilettos
Kelsey @ The Seattle Smith's
I don't know most of these bloggers, and some of them are kind-of "Blog Celebrities" as I like to call them, so I doubt everyone will follow-up.  BUT, these ladies have kept me successfully entertained for 3+ hours this morning and always brighten my day with their creativity, passion, humor, and honesty.  Hope you enjoy!

And... 7 Things About Me:
  1. I have a very serious addiction to Diet Dr. Pepper.
  2. I absolutely HATE ketchup.  And doing laundry.
  3. I asked my husband to 3 out of 4 high school dances.  He said no.  He finally asked me to our Senior Prom. I said yes.
  4. I could clean out closets and drawers ALL day. 
  5. My sister is the funniest person I know. Joe Richmond is close competition.
  6. I LOVE being a teacher, but I still hope to be able to stay home with a house full of kids one day.
  7. One of my favorite things in the world is my dog Addy's nose.  Gross, but true.
Thank you again Tessica for giving me something to do with my time today!  (And, yes, I have been playing with my blog ALL day.)


  1. E - I love the new layout! Thanks for the award. I will try to post about it very soon. My "cravings" are pretty much gone. Last night the hubs and I were actually talking about how we have liked this break. I had Facebook on my phone and I turned off the application, I seriously used to check it 30 times a day. I cannot believe I just admitted that. So anyways, this is getting easier as it goes and I dont think I will ever quite be the addict I was before. How is the break going for you?
