Check This Out

I got a blog award! It was given to me by Amy at Nine-Ninety-One. Thanks Amy!! I just recently found her blog. She has some cute kiddos!

The rules are to:
1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award
2. Answer 10 questions
3. Pass it along to 7 blogs you've recently discovered and enjoy
4. Leave your recipients a note, telling them about the award

Here are the ten questions:

1. Why did you create this blog?
Vicki told me to. HA! Really, my friend Vicki told me I should start a blog so I did.
2. What kind of blogs do you follow?
A lot of decorating blogs & some that are just regular blogs about people & their families

3. Favorite Make-Up Brand?
I guess I'd have to say Revlon since I've been using their base for years.

4. Favorite Clothing Brand?
I don't have one. I buy clothes everywhere from "nice" stores  to Penney's to Sam's. Wherever I find a deal on something I like!

5. Indispensable Make-Up Product?
Lip Stick/Gloss & Chapstick

6. Favorite Color?
Red! I like pink a lot too.

7. Favorite Perfume?
Victoria Secret Very Sexy & one of the Angel ones but I can't remember which one.

8. Favorite Film?
How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days - I don't know that this qualifies as a "film" but I LOVE this movie!! I watch at least a little of it EVERYTIME it's on TV which is really, really often.

9. What country would you like to visit and why?
Italy. The food & wine would be fabulous.

10. Would you rather forget to put on mascara on one eye or forget blush on one side of your face?
Mascara. I have dark eyelashes so I don't think it would be that noticeable.

These are 7 blogs that I enjoy.
Elements Interiors  Kara's blog is all about Interior Design & she's really funny!

Webbisodes I found Shannon when I became part of the Christmas Ornament Exchange. She was one of the hosts.

Excursions of the Spurgins - Aishlea is a southern girl & her blog is about their life & now she has a cute little baby boy.

Honey We're Home - Megan  has a great house. Her closet is to die for!! She's got a cute baby boy too.

Just Shy of a "Y" - Angie's is another blog about their lives. I seem to be drawn in by this. Does that make me incredibly nosy?? Her kids are adorable!

Karen at Home - I don't know how I found Karen's blog but she's got an adorable baby girl that I love reading about. She was the other host for the Ornament Exchange

Southern Comfort in a Northern Life - I love Melanie! We play Words With Friends all the time. Her blog is about her life & the decorating of all her houses from her many moves.

I have a lot more than 7 & blogs that I read & a couple that I really love but they don't post often enough. Yes, I'm talking to you Wendy & Mrs. Carolyn!!

On another note - Today is Day 4 of the Les Miles to Michigan saga. I swear it's like the Sportscasters have turned into the Paparazzi & Les is a rock star. I guess it just shows how big time college football really is.

All boxes of Christmas stuff & the trees & the wreaths are all stored away. YAY!!!! It's nice to have the house back to normal even though it's looking really bare.
