Tell Me About Yourself Award

 I received this special one-of-a-kind : "Tell Me About Yourself Award" from Growing Old With Grace

 As my guys would say....clapping in my general direction.."YAY MOM! You did something!!!"

Picture me humbly bowing and blushing as I approach the podium.
(There has been a singular lack of awards and medals flowing in my specific direction lately.)

There are disclaimers and protocols involved with my acceptance of this award (aka: FINE PRINT).

1. I must disclose seven things about myself.
2. I must pass this award on to 15 other bloggers.

Part A: Seven Things You Might not know/or ever want to know About Me:

1. I am left handed. (I have two left handed sons)
2. I hate Sushi : it's not just a simple dislike: I H.A.T.E. it!
3. I am the most unorganized person I know...not messy... unorganized...(#justsayin) :0)
4. I read EVERY night until I can't keep my eyes open. ( we don't have cable)
5. I prefer baths to showers. (hot...like boiled lobster) ( um...TMI?)
6. I do not own a cell phone. ( if #apple is reading this feel free to comp me an iphone so I can be converted)
7. I secretly (not so much any more) would love to build a rammed earth house on the edge of nowhere in the mountains of BC, have a root cellar, start a commune with friends and live totally off the grid.

Part B: The AMAZING blogs I am certifying  for this prestigious Award:

1. Rambling With Grace
2. His Grace My Weaknesses
3. Lost in the Prairies
4. Exploits of Mommyhood
5. I'm a Lazy Mom

Now you see only 5 not 15...but I am certain that these are special circumstances. I am a small blog with a small following. I value quality over quantity. I go to these sites often and each one of them is unique. They reflect authenticity and are down to earth, everyday people who tell their stories from deep in the midst of life.

I like'em!

{ More rules: Each person who received this award must write seven things about themselves and then pass the award onto 15 other bloggers. To copy the award logo, right click, click on copy, the go to your new blog post and click paste. }

Have fun..I must go polish my award now....
