Feelin' the bloggy love!

*** Just a reminder: there is still time to enter my BLOGOVERSARY giveaway!!! Click here to read the post and leave your comment(s) on this post!!! ***

My sweet friend, Kathleen at Rural Maine Life, passed this most flattering award on to me, and I am so grateful for the bloggy love!!! You all must check out Kathleen's blog! She is witty, creative, thoughtful, and kind, and her posts are inspiring and thought-provoking! She truly is one Gorgeous Blogger!!!

In accepting this award, I am to tell you six things about myself you may not know, then pass it on to other Gorgeous Blogger friends!

1.) I have three tattoos and a total of nine holes in both ears (though I only wear one earring per ear now, and some of the holes higher up on my ear would probably kill if I stuck anything in them! lol).
2.) My nephew and I both have a birthmark in the exact same spot.
3.) I drive a minivan and I am soooo sick of it but it is paid for and the thought of another car payment makes me ill!
4.) I have been swimming with dolphins three times, with stingrays once, and with giant sea turtles once. And I saw a HUGE eel and a little seahorse while snorkeling at the Molokini Crater off Maui!
5.) I want to put up my Christmas tree, like, NOW!
6.) I went to summer camp every year from the age of 8 till the age of 22. Best times ever!!!

And now I am passing this award to:


Next up, my sweet blog friend Bibi at From Misery to Happiness in 365 Days presented me with the Superior Scribbler Award! I love this, because putting pen (or ink or paint or even my fingers to the keyboard!) to paper is what I love the most!!!

The rules are simple:
1.) I must mention and link to the Superior Scribbler that gave me this award.
2.) I must display the award on my blog.
3.) I must pass this on to five bloggy friends that I think are Superior Scribblers.
4.) I must post these rules on my blog.

The Superior Scribblers I am passing this on to are:

Thanks sweetie! I'm excited! YAY! A big congrats to you! Hope you are doing well!

Lol, I knew I had something to comment on, but I had a brain fart... de-de-de... lol

I love your little tidbits! that's crazy that you and your nephew have a birthmark in the same spot!!! How weird is that?!

I hear you about the X-mas tree. We bought a nice one last year after X-mas so we got a super deal, and I can't wait to break it out, and especially in our house!!! yippie!

I can't wait to go swimming with the dolphins! That is DEFINITELY on tap for the honeymoon. Although, I do believe that I am going to have to talk someone to go in with me!! lol Did you get pics?!

Dreamgirl said...

Love the little facts about you. I'm so envious of you swimming three times with dolphins! And the Christmas tree... I'm so with you on that one!

Thanks for visiting and leaving a birthday comment for my hubby! Much appreciated;-)

Have a fab Thursday!

Kathleen said...

I think it is such fun to find out little known facts about our friends. My car is all paid for, too. I dread the thought of another car payment. I'm praying this one will hold on a couple more years. Thanks for your sweet words.....have a great Thursday, Hugs, Kathleen

I love finding more about people - 9 holes in both ears - that's a lotta holes!! you never know, one day you might get a hankering to get all blinged out again!

Farmgirl Paints said...

You are so brave. I am really afraid of any sea creature...dolphins would be the exception. Look at you!

Melissa Miller said...

Swimming with dolphins is my dream....:) One day soon.
