I Was Given Two More Awards!!

I was recently surprised to receive two more blogger awards!  Thank you very much Rachel at for the Stylish blogger award!  Rachel has a beautiful blog that I hope you will take the time to check out!

Here are the rules that go along with the award...  I must share 7 facts about myself and then share the award with 10 bloggers.  Well, rules are meant to be broken!  I'm going to choose just one blog that I've been loving lately so it's an extra huge deal!

First, here are my 7 facts:
  1. I am a 'Little House on the Prairie' addict and aficionado.
  2. I'm proud to be even a little bit Irish... especially on St. Patty's Day!
  3. They say it's impossible to lick your elbow, but I can do it!
  4. I don't like beer or coffee.
  5. I am a HUGE needle phobe!
  6. My birthday is on Pi day- 3/14!
  7. I make a killer New York style cheesecake!  Let me know if you want the recipe!
And now, to pass on the award...

I'd like to give the Stylish Blogger Award to Flavia at!  You've got an awesome blog and it's been great getting to know you!  Thanks!!!

Next, I'd like to thank Melanie at for the One Lovely Blog Award!  Melanie's blog is so much fun to read!  She leads a life that is so different from most of us!

The rules for this blog are just like the other one, except I'll be giving it out to 5 bloggers instead of only one.  So here are 7 more facts about me, as if anyone was REALLY interested... :)

  1. Sour gummy worms are by far and away my favorite candy!
  2. I've only had one boyfriend... my husband!
  3. I LOVE LOVE LOVE roller coasters!   The wilder the better!
  4. I'm not much of a drinker, but my two favorite drinks are Brandy Slush and Sex on the Beach.
  5. Although I'm a grown woman I secretly (or not so secretly) want a remote control helicopter!
  6. I consider myself a Mrs. Fix-it around the house.
  7. I love a good thunderstorm with lots of lightning and thunder!
And the award now goes to: 

Congratulations, everybody!  Keep up the good work!
