~kreativ blogger award~

Thanks so much for the nominations! 

Two wonderful bloggy friends have awarded me this
within days of each other

Please check out their incredible blogs....

Cindy's is so beautiful.... right when the page starts to load,
you know you're in for a treat ~ her dining room makeover
 (click here to see)
is totally amazing and serious eye candy.
Lisa has got to be the busiest person I know....
I am always astounded everytime I see yet another fabulous project she finishes!!
click here to see one of my favorites~

It is really so wonderful to be a part of this blogging community!
I have met so many terrific women who never cease to
amaze and inspire me.

Every new follower and every single comment makes me smile :-}
I think we all need the little motivation and encouragement
 that we get from each other....
the little nudge to keep trying, and the sweet comments to say "great job!"

on that I can share with you 7 things you
definitely don't know because it's too embarrassing....
might not know about me....

 ~ ~*~ ~

1)  I don't like to shop for clothing....
I would much rather go to Lowe's or Home Depot....
and that is the reason I only own 2 pairs of jeans....scary I know.

2)  Regarding the "only 2 pairs of jeans..."
those get made into cut offs at the beginning of each summer
and become my gardening gear.......

3)  My hair "style" is a ponytail on most days....ok all days..

4)  I listen to talk radio roughly 4-5 hours a day...
(until the kids get in the car and/or come home and begin to protest) and
watch less than 1/2 hour of TV a day and rarely
use the computer (I know, I know.. the computer thing was an outright LIE! :) ) 

5)  I tore out all the grass in our backyard.....
if you are wondering if I did this while my hubby was at're right...
  but he did come home at lunch to load up the sod cutter for me in the trailer....that thing is heavy....and in case
any of you are wondering if he ever runs out of  patience...... you are right... I'm on strict orders  not  to tear up, or tear out, or dismantle anything until further notice...
(you can look here for other mischief I've gotten into over the last 5 years...)

6)  I'm horrified at the site of spiders AND my dear sweet hubby
HAS had to come home from work to kill (sorry sometimes being put outdoors isn't good enough... ) one for me...
and I've had several neighbors and my daughters rescue me as well..pathetic I know.

7)  We watch Home Alone I and II all throughout the year
start listening to Christmas music the day after Halloween.

Well, there you have here's what I do:

If you have 2 comments from me and they are the same I apologize = I seem to be having trouble here today. I just want to say again :) that it is nice to meet you, I am very familiar with VanCouver as my daughter lives there also, and we have shopped Monticello Market quite a bit. My daughter should take out stock in the store that and Burnidettes. I have enjoyed browsing through your blog and see you have a lot of pictures from Bountiful, is it the same store out of Venice Beach in CA. I know the owner Sue very well and used to sell to her quite a bit.
Love your banner also, is that your home? It is gorgeous.
Thanks so much for stopping by-I will be back
