Many Thanks...& a Happy Birthday!

I am so very lucky to have the best bloggy friends around! I always feel the bloggy love!! In the last few weeks I received 2 very cool awards...

I was given this award by my bloggy friend Robin over at Life in a Small Town. Like me, she is a teacher and a mom and so much more!! And I am humbled that she thinks my blog (and me) is so versatile!! Thanks Robin!

The Rules...

1. Thank the person who gave you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic!
4. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.

I was given this fun and colorful award from Bridget over at Among the Chaos. She is a baseball mom and like me trying to find the balance between family, sports and work!

The Rules...

1. Tell 10 things that I love
2. Pass this onto 10 blogs you love

So this is what I am gonna do..I am kinda gonna combine these 2 together and just give you 1 list of things that you may or may not know about me! I have gained a few new bloggy friends over the last month or this is kinda hard...what do you know...what do you not know?!

1. I wanted to be a nurse growing up...but then realized that I would have to work with blood! So that was out!! It wasn't until I was in high school that I decided I wanted to be a teacher.

2. I HATE scary movies...give me a romantic comedy any day!

3. I love the color purple, ladybugs, and diet coke! (most of you know that though!)

4. When I met my hubby, Coach Mac, it was either love football or find a new boyfriend! Guess you know what the answer to that was!!

5. I do not like to cook, but I love to eat!!

6. I very rarely go shopping for me, but when I do...ya better watch out!

7. Ryan, and most everyone actually, thinks I make the best brownies around...funny thing though...I buy the cheap box brownies and just doctor them up with chocolate syrup, chocolate & peanut butter chips and put powered sugar on top! YUM!

8. I hate to clean but an too cheap to hire anyone to do it for I usually have a very dusty house.

9. I don't like anything coffee flavored, but wish I did...there are so many fun coffee drinks out there...sometimes I feel left out!

10. I love to travel and have been to lots of places...including Canada, Mexico, France, London, and lots of the states. My dream is to visit more of countries including but not limited to Italy, Ireland, Scotland and Australia.

So there you have it...and as many of you know...I hate following if you are reading this...I pass on these wonderful awards to you...cuz there are just too many of you who are awesome and it would not be fair to choose!

Thanks again Robin and Bridget!!!

Today is a very special day...My Godson turns 5 today...5...

Happy Birthday Stunt Man...I hope you have the best birthday ever...I love and miss you with all of my heart and can't wait to see you soon!

I do the same thing with my brownies and everyone loves them!

The only time we have been out of the country is when we went on the cruise. We are hoping to visit Ireland in a few years:)

Happy Birthday Stunt Man!!!

I agree on the coffee thing - I think mocha is just a chocolate abomination LOL.

Boy I hate to clean too! And I'm allergic to dust, so it would behoove me to keep on top of it instead of letting it turn into an ecological disaster. Sigh.

Congrats on your awards Stacey! They are always so fun to get and we share a few things in common...the color purple and the love of travel. Even though I don't do near enough of it.

Happy Monday to you!

congrats on the awards!! I loved learning a few new things about you. I hate to clean too and I am definitely too cheap to hire a cleaning person. So dust is very evident in our home as well. LOL
Happy Birthday to Stuntman!!

I already wished Stunt Man a happy birthday on Mimi's blog so I'll say a big CONGRATS on the blog awards!

How can you not like coffee? LOL It is an acquired taste. It took me 35 years to drink it. LOL
Thanks for the birthday wish...he had such a good day.
Didn't know you wanted to be a nurse. Hmmmm
The rest I knew:)
HUgs and congrats,
