Thanks for the Award - the blog is cute!!!

oh, wow!!! I Received this award from and it made my day. It nice to hear that someone likes me and my random self. Thank you so much!!! I enjoy reading your blog as well.

Here are 10 cute or sometimes not so cute things about me:
I am far more spoiled by Mamma Spawn and Goo as an adult than I ever was as a child. I often tell them they don't have to buy my love, I kinda just like them. I LOVE partying with them. I know that might be somewhat odd, but when your parents are only 50 and you are 30, its a lot of fun.

We say nightly prayers and sing the baby puppy to sleep. LOL. Sad I know, but we do and he goes from being uppy to fast asleep within minutes. To I'm a little tea pot "I'm a baby puppy short and stout....Here is my tail, here is my snout.......When I'm feeling uppy, hear me shout......Roll me over and let me out." That last part still needs work, but....its the baby pup's song. It all began when Ken found him 7 months ago.

No matter where I go or what I am doing, my whole outfit has to match. I will not leave the house until I feel I have found the right outfit. Ken usually thinks this is funny (ie: going out to garden: jean work overalls, grey Henley shirt, Pink & white Breast cancer awareness hat, Pink gardening goves (Ken bought them), pink boots (Mamma Spawn bought them), (here's the part that kills Ken) pink, grey, balck and white argyle socks. LOL, I know I'm a mess.

Mamma Spawn......We spell it this way b/c I call her MAM (Midwestern accent "O"s sound like "A"s.) I'm her sometimes evil baby spawn (I'm JUST like her.) So she's Mamma Spawn, I'm the baby spawn, and whenever I have a little girl she'll be the baby baby spawn. LOL.

Barbiedom....I LOVED Barbie as a little kid. Clothes, shoes, houses, cars, what more could a girl want?! I once told Mamma Spawn that she looked like Barbie. I believe a woman at her best, is a Barbie. Then in college I met Malibu/PR Barbie, her Phi Mu sisters were all Barbies (Barbie, Malibu Barbie, Skipper, Mieko, etc.) It didn't hurt that they were all blond.

I keep a pretty clean house, except....I HATE dusting. Ken sometimes uses his dirty socks to dust off the tv. LOL. Sad, I know. But, it is my least favorite thing to do and Ken hasn't completely gotten the hint that HE should do it.

I'm slightly OCD in the fact that I cannot sleep or do anything unless everything is in the proper place.

I am SO impressed with our new Scotch Fur Fighter, that I was compelled to write a review on Target's website. Yes, I'm a dork. But, it REALLY works well. I do suggest vacuuming the area first, but it is FABULOUS!!!!

I dance around the house whenever the mood hits me. Belly, swing, hip hop, salsa, Irish jig, whatever I'm all for it.

I was so excited that my daffodils are in bloom, that I woke Ken up over the weekend. He was less than excited, but came outside to see them any way. LOL.

Even as an adult, I LOVE Christmas and everything about it. There is just something magical about the whole season.

You are the best! Thanks so much for the award, and I'll be sure to do my part and then send it along to someone else!

And I love that you can't leave the house without the proper outfit...neither can I!!! I have never been one to throw on some sneaks, and head out the ma'am!

Oh, I used to LOVE playing Barbies too! In my highschool days, my boyfriends older brother referred to me as Barbie and made me feel SOOOO good about myself (I had NO self-esteem back then).

Singing the puppy to sleep, huh? Oh, you're gonna be SUCH a cute mommy someday!

Congrats on your award. =0)

Oh my gosh, that Scotch Fur Fighter is freakin' AMAZING. I saw an add for it in a magazine months ago and hunted that thing down. I should by stock in it. Seriously has saved my house. I love it.
