My 1st Award of 2011!

Happy New Year to all my Bloggy Friends! I hope you all had a wonderful and safe Holiday!

I would first like to say YIPEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and show you my excitement about the kids going back to school tomorrow!

Now don't gasp, you all feel the same way!

We actually had a very fun and lazy break. Lots of Lego's, barbies, board games (bananagrams is a lot of fun) Kinect, movies, baking and sleepovers. Its time for this house and this mom to get back to normal.

Today I was awarded my first award of 2011! How cool is that? It is from Karen over at not just baby talk

She gave me the Stylish Blogger Award, wow! What a way to start off the New Year! Thank you so much Karen!

Rules of the game are as follows:

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award!

7 Things about Moi! Hmmmmm.....

1. I want to take singing lessons! No, not to be the next American Idol or even on Americas Got Talent. I just like to sing and would like to have my husband stop asking me, "Hey did you write that song?" And me saying, "No, of course not!" And him saying, "Then why don't we leave it to the artist because they have talent!" Meany ! And for the record, I'm not that bad!

2. Huge pet peeve of mine is when people crack their knuckles! My son has a horrible habit of it and ugh I hate it!

3. I usually keep my Christmas up until February! Yes I am one of those! I think its because in Iowa January is so gloomy outside. But I have to tell you its killing me and I have already taken the big tree down! I'm thinking it will happen this week!

4. I clean the shower when I'm in the shower! I pray my inhaling of all the fumes won't give me cancer but it is so much easier to clean it that way. Don't all of you do that?

5. I am a product junkie! Yep its true! I love Walgreens! When my sister comes to visit she doesn't have to bring any toiletries, because I am fully stocked.

6. I have a love hate relationship with Face Book! I hate the fact that some people from High School seem to brag about their lives but I love to see what it is they are up to, why is that?

7. I would rather clean and organize someone else's home than my own! I use to have my own business doing that many moons ago and who knows maybe someday I will again!

Ok, now I need to award this to 15 bloggers I have just discovered but geesh with the holidays I can tell you 5 I have discovered, so here they are!

2. Mrs. Tuna over at Working Woman's Guide to Dinner
3. Karyn of Karyn Climans
4. Hollie from Funky Junk Show
5. Lisa from Mommying on the fly

Off to bed, gotta get those kiddos out early so I can do a little dance!

Thanks again Karen!

So funny... so glad I popped over to your blog! I don't always comment, but you always make me smile.

I JUST this minute got back from wandering the aisles at Walgreens, after dropping #3 child at school... Doing a happy dance too :))))

Mrs. Tuna said...

Wheeeeeee, my first award. Of course I won't be able to follow all the rules right away since I'm already breaking one of my resolutions to not check my blog 80 millionity times a day from work. (They think I'm working on an email) But thank you, thank you, thank you.

My daughter cleans the shower while she is in it also.
I too am a product junkie. I love them all!

Jill said...

WooHoo!!! Congrats on your award! =)
The kids & school...ikr!?!
lol! I clean the shower while I'm taking a shower too.
AND...FB...yeah, I feel the same way. I really don't like the way some ppl brag and others rant about their ex. Also, I moved away after I graduated so my life wouldn't be an open book for Everyone. Heck, the only reason I carry my cell phone is so my kids can get a hold of me. rant is done.
Luff your blog and once agin Congrats on your award!
Happy New Year! =)
