Stylish Blogger Award

My blog friend Blondee has awarded me with the Stylish Blog Award. I am honored that she considered me for the award.  If you have a chance, stop by and visit her blog.  She's a wonderful, warm and funny homeschooling mom who has a love for life and everything in it.


There are some rules for the award and they are:-

~ Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award.

~ Share 7 things about yourself.

~ Award 7 recently discovered great bloggers.

~ Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.


So, here it goes - seven things about myself that you may not know.

1.  I cannot cook anything pre-packed and frozen.  I always seem to burn them.  In fact, hubby has banned me from cooking frozen pizzas.  If I buy them I have to leave them for him to cook.

2.  I have been spelunking (caving) and loved it.  I hope we get a chance to go again this summer.

3.  I love big dogs.

4.  I love watching old movies from the '30s and '40s.

5.  One of my favorite foods is dark chocolate with almonds.

6.  I'm almost at the end of my career as a homeschooling mom and I'm not sure if I should sit down and cry or jump up and down with joy - maybe both??

7.  I love weeding.  There is something so satisfying and calming about cleaning up flowerbeds and gardens.


Now, onto my seven recently discovered great bloggers :)

1.  Stop by and visit Kelsie at Our Country Home .  She shares and joys and trials of a simple country life while living on their families original homesite.

2.  Check in on Debi at Barefoot Mom who has a great love for her family and friends.

3.  Say hi to Misty at Misty's Mornings . She's a hard working mom with a daydreamer heart.
