My friend, Marlene thinks my blog is stylish. Alrighty then, Marlene!!! Thank you so much! {I've been putting some effort into my blog as of late. Trying to kick it up a notch...so thanks for noticing!} She awarded me with a "Stylish blogger Award". Yay!!! :) :)

This would be Marlene!!! Thanks, Marlene - you are over-the-top-awesome!!!

2) Share 8 things about myself.

3) Pay it forward to 8 bloggers that I have recently discovered.

Okay, 8 things about myself…



1) I sing loud, awful & often.
2) I love my dog like he's a person.
3) I have two fabulous adult sons who I have a hard time calling "men".
I still see them as my boys.
4) My hubs and I love to travel and have visited 14 National Parks in the U.S. - from California to Maine.

6) I am a Landlady. I nice landlady though, not a mean one.
7) My family requests my kick-a$$ cheesecake (oh, and sometimes....I swear).
8) I love to meet new people and can talk to anybody - airports, the mall, public restrooms - it's all good. ;) :) :)



Now, 8 blogs that are new to me and totally fabulous!!!

2) Kelly - "Living in a House of all Boys" - Kelly posts beautiful pics of her little boys and she makes the most cool, hip & fun projects that come together quickly. Hey, this woman has 4 little boys!! She needs quickly. ;)

3) Aimee - "Optimistic Scrappiness" - Love, love, love Aimee's attention to detail. And, if I can say this without sounding like a weirdo stalker.....she reminds me of me. Love her stuff!
