Stylish Blogger Award!!

I just received a wonderful email from Michelle over at A Life Better Than I Deserve awarding me the Stylish Blogger Award!  That just made my night...and on the heels of my blog makeover!  

The rules of the award are as follows:
  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
So I want to thank Michelle from A Life Better Than I Deserve for thinking of me!  Next is the hard part...listing 7 things about myself...

1.  Since we are having family movie time right now (and yes, I am multitasking on the laptop), I thought I would talk movies.  I love musicals and tonight we are watching Mary Poppins (our daughter's pick).  Growing up I loved West Side Story but that has been replaced with Guys and Dolls, followed closely by Singing in the Rain

2.  Another favorite movie of mine is Gone with the Wind.  We tried to get our daughter to watch that tonight...maybe next time.  ;o)

3.  Switching topics...let's talk about what I'm not good at.  Hmmm, this should be easy.  Cooking, anything related to music or singing, sewing...OK, pretty much anything under the category of "homemaker", but I at least I try...  

4.  I love to travel and wish we went on more vacations.  We've visited most of the major cities in the U.S. but we've never been overseas.  There are so many places I would love to visit.  

5.  I've really never liked writing and I was never that child who always had my nose in a book.  So why did I start blogging?  I enjoy homeschooling and I love sharing ideas.  I hope that at least one person is helped by what I write.

6.  I was never a morning person and have always slept through any noise.  Nowadays I wake up at the drop of a dime, multiple times a night for no reason, get up early and can't get back to bed, and sometimes can't go to sleep for hours because my mind won't settle.  Not sure if that is from motherhood or from just getting older...

7.  Oh, I'm running out of things to tell.  Ummm...I'm an animal lover (and so is our daughter).  I don't even go to the circus because of the way they treat the animals.  :o(  The only pet I had growing up was a fish (poor Harvey).  In case you didn't know, we have a Miniature Schnauzer now.  She's definitely part of the family and we love her!!

So, now that I'm done with that, here are the some bloggers I've recently discovered (in no particular order).  Please try and visit them if you can!

OK, I only listed 12...that's all I can muster. So now I'm off to notify them all...well, maybe in the morning.  ;o)
