An Award....For Me?

I was given this award from a fellow blog writer. Please keep her in your prayers as she is in the throes of infertility and the pursuit of her miracle baby. Her blog can be found here: Adrift on a dandelion breeze. Thank for giving me this award! So, I'm seriously excited about this. Does that make me a nerd? I really don't care if it does. Never in a million years would I have thought that someone would give me an award for my blog, so I am grateful and thrilled.

Here is how the award works. 
  1. Share who gave this award to you with a link back to their blog (above)
  2. Write down 7 random facts about yourself.
  3. Give this award to 15 other bloggers.
  4. Let them know they've won
  5. Pop the award on your blog 
So here are seven random facts about me:
  1. I've been blogging here for about 3 years but didn't realize it kept track of how many people have viewed my blog until about 3 weeks ago, and wow, am I amazed that what I have written has been viewed that many times. Thank You!
  2. I love to sew and am completely self taught, however I would love to learn some tricks from those who are so much better than me.
  3. I love baseball and have a dream to go to every major league stadium in the US and Canada. I've been to the following so far: The Ballpark in Arlington (Texas Rangers), Yankee Stadium (NYC, the original), Fenway Park (Boston), Safeco Field (Seattle), Angel Stadium of Anaheim (Los Angeles). We are going to: Nationals Park (Washington D.C.), Camden Yards (Baltimore) and Citizens Bank Park (Philadelphia) in the next 2 weeks and I am super excited!
  4. I grew up in a major city (Dallas, TX) but love living in a smaller town and don't want to go back to living in the city anytime soon.
  5. I have 2 dogs: a Newfoundland and a Labrador Retriever. I would love to have another Newfoundland and am not a "small" dog person.
  6. I love to bake, mostly cakes and cookies, and to decorate them!
  7. My first apartment when I lived completely on my own was furnished totally by garage sale finds (except for the mattress, that would be gross).
So there you have it, a few random things about little ole' me. 


  1. I would love to learn to sew but HATE to teach myself to do it (impatience) ;)

    God is smacking that patience lesson right into me here lately isn't he??

  2. I soo agree about the living in a small town. I used to live at the beach in Southern California and now when I go back, I'm nervous about the traffic, all the people, struggling to find parking... I don't know if I could ever go back!

  3. I love to bake also Cakes and cookies are my favorite!!!I also love to sew...but time does not allow me to do a lot. I really miss small town life, I grew up in town with one stoplight now I live in a really big city. I really enjoyed learning these fun things about you!
