Stylish blogger Award

THANK YOU SO MUCH  to At Home with Mom and Wedded Mommy Bliss for awarding me with the "Stylish blogger Award" 

This is how this fun award works:

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award!

7 things about myself ...

1.  I stink at talking about myself....I could talk for hours about my family though
2.  My favourite colour is purple, like eggplant dark & rich
3.  I don't drink coffee or tea ...never did and never will...however I'm addicted to Pepsi (which is AWFUL for you) and hope to be done with that this year!
4.  I have been with my "better half" since 2001 but we met in 1999 and I definitely felt sparks (even though I was on my 1st date with the guy who introduced us).  We hardly saw each other between '99 and '01 but once we started hanging around we were inseparable. 
5.  I want to go back to school and become a teacher's assistant and specialize in working with Autism...I can't honestly explain why but I have wanted to work with kids for as long as I can remember and for years I have had the "pull" towards autism the further I've gone putting it off or ignoring it the stronger the "pull"gets and the more my life gets exposed to it.....maybe it's part of my destiny??
6.  I enjoy volunteering...I would make a career of this if I was well off enough to never work a "real job" again.  I don't do it for applause or accolade's but because I get a tremendous high from being of help or use.  If I can make the tiniest difference in someones day or life it really warms from head to toe.
7.  I'm not exactly religious but I am so incredibly FAITH FULL! 

Now the 15 bloggers I am giving the award to. This was so hard since I have found so many great blogs over the last few weeks!


  1. Thank you so much! :) And you're certainly welcome to make a post for the Better World Blogshare. :) Better late than never!


  2. Thanks for the award. How fun.

    -On another note. What a great heart you have to have a heart for children with autism. Good assistants are hard to find and wonderful asset. You probably don't have to go back to school to be an assistant though. I taught general and special ed for several years before my kids were born and my assistants never had a degree or any special training. The job doesn't pay much (maybe $11 a hour starting) but working one on one with a child with special needs can be very rewarding.

  3. Thanks for the award! Now following you.

  4. Thank you so much for this beautiful award, you're a doll! It's not often in life we are recognized or acknowledged for things, which isn't bad - it's just nice to and makes us feel good. Thanks for being you and making my day special! :)

  5. Thank you :) Following you back :)

  6. I was out shopping with my family when I got your message. It just made my day! Thanks so much for thinking of my silly little blog. :)

  7. Thank you so much for the award -- it totally made my day! Best wishes for the new year! xoxo :-)

  8. OKAY... I am so lame for not posting this sooner - but I'm a mom and you know how that goes! Anyway, I have finally passed this award on to other bloggers and I wanted to let you know how very greatful I was that you chose me. It really did make me feel fantastic because sometimes I think nobody ever reads! So Thank you very much and take a look at who I passed it to on My Wonderfully Dysfunctional Blog

  9. Thanks so much for this award. I really appreciate it and am sorry that it has taken me so long to reply. :)


I always look forward to hearing others thoughts & ideas! Please feel free to leave me a message or "Follow". Thanks for stopping in! I hope your day is GREAT, Tish
