My 1st Award!

Oh my gosh people! I just got my first blog award. Yup! It's true! The ever colorful Margo Kelly, just gave me the "From me to you!" award. Is that not just awesome? gets better. I also got the

award from the lovely Christina Lucas. I would like to thank the both of them for being  followers and most importantly... new friends. It's nice to know that the rocky road to publication, will be paved with friends like them. Makes the whole trip much better doesn't it? Now, I'm supposed to list seven things about myself then pass this award onto seven other people. But since there are two awards, I thought I'd better list fourteen, so here goes.
1. I have two daughters and a wonderful husband.
2. I love mushrooms. (the legal ones that come in jars) And I often eat them right out of the jar just to gross out my husband. (Ah-good times)
3. I'd love to have dinner with Oliver Platt. I have no idea why. No physical attraction. He's just Oliver Platt.
4. I drink sweet tea like I lived through the Boston Tea Party and I'm fearful of a repeat.
5. Sometimes I listen to classical music while I cook. (Oh shush it, it's cool and you know it.)
6. I'd rather give gifts than get them. (awards don't count-love em!)
7. I once had a dream where I saw Joe Pesci naked. It was horrible. (but I still love him)
8. I have a fear of flying. I've done it before, but doubt I'll do it again unless I'm tranquilized.
9. I sometimes envision myself playing the electric guitar in front of thousands of people when I listen to music. (I don't even know how to play the guitar or any other musical instrument)
10. My favorite band is "Evans Blue"
11. I love, love, love coffee ice cream with caramel and pecans from Cold Stone Creamery.
12. I don't like reality shows. (there is enough reality in my own house)
13. I hardly watch T.V.
14. I once ran into a closed patio door at the beach and had to endure my husband laughing at the imprint of my face on the glass for nearly two days.( yes, alcohol was involved)

Alright, so there you have it. Seven more little things to make you worry about me even more. Now onto passing these babies along to other amazing bloggers. Drum Roll......

  1. Thank you for the award! And congratulations! Getting awards is so much fun.

    Whenever I'm on a plane and there's any turbulence I start picturing all the ways the plan could crash and totallly freak myself out.

    Classical music ROCKS!

  2. Thanks you so much for the award! Congrats on yours!

    I love music from Gregorian Chant to Rock. Classical is one of my faves, though :)

  3. Yay, thanks for the award. I love it. I am going to add it to my sidebar tomorrow.

  4. Thank you. Your the best! I see I have a lot of other blogs I need to check out!

  5. Awww, thank you, girl. I love it... hanging it right up on my blog! :)

    I love your list! lol! I hate reality TV too. And I do like Oliver Platt. Joe Pesci naked? Ewww!Can't imagine not flying, but I talk to peeps all the time who have your same fear.

    Congrats on your awards... they are very much deserved!!! Cheers! :)

  6. Well, I actually got this award this week too. Lol. But I don't see why I can't take another one.;)

  7. Because he's Oliver Platt, and he's awesome. Nothing further needs to be said. Can I come to dinner with you guys?

  8. Your welcome guys. And Amie, of course you can have dinner with us.
    PK- my husband watches CASINO every single time it comes on HBO-EVERY SINGLE TIME!!! You watch something enough, you're bound to dream about somebody naked. If you've ever seen the movie, it was going to be a nightmare no matter what;)
