My Fist Blog Award!

I won a stylish blogger award! This is my first award I have received for my blog! I am so excited and completely thankful to Jodi at A Mom Having Fun!! for this wonderful honor. I strongly urge you to check out her awesome blog! I was going to write a new post to catch everyone up with what's been going on (since I know it's been a long time since I last posted and there is SO much to tell!) but I wanted to accept this award first and pass it on...

There are 4 duties to perform to accept this award:
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 me!

1.) I cannot wear to socks to bed...EVER!
2.) Monk was my favorite television show (until it had it's last season *tear*) partly because I could relate a little to his OCD tendencies. *Note that I said A LITTLE!!!
3.) One of my favorite things to do is after I put Punkin to bed, I curl up on the couch with my man and a glass of wine and we catch up on episodes of our favorite shows.
4.) I am obsessed with coffee with flavored creamers and could drink it all the time!
5.) I knocked out my two front teeth when I was little learning to skateboard. Thank goodness they were only baby teeth!
6.) I have an extremely large family and even though they drive me absolutely nuts and are good at raising my stress level significantly high, I still love them.
7.) I plan on owning my own business and WILL succeed!
