Circle of Friends Award

WOW - my first Circle of Friends Award - thanks to my good friend, Steven over at No Excuse, No Explanation for this wonderful award! The rules are as follows...grab the award, post it on your blog along with five things you love to do and five others you want to here it goes (those of you I have passed this onto, please be sure to follow the rules)

1.  Cooking - I L.O.V.E. to cook.  My passion for cooking didn't come really until the last few years and it has grown into something I truly enjoy doing.  I love trying new recipes on my family and keeping the ones that are a big hit.  But my true passion in cooking is during the holiday period.  I love everything about the holidays Thanksgiving and Christmas and look forward every year to cooking - especially the desserts that I make and give out to neighbors and co-workers.

2.  Scrapbooking - I am a HUGE fanatic over scrapbooking - however, I rarely have the time anymore due to my long hours at work but the one thing I do enjoy getting to do and make every year beginning in October are Christmas cards for my family and friends.  I usually make 75-100 each year.

3.  Photography - I truly enjoy taking a lot of pictures (which goes hand in hand with my scrapbooking).  What started out as part of a hobby has become more of an obsession.  So much to the point that my family hates to see me bring out the camera because they all hate posing - HA! But, it is my way of capturing memories for my kids so that they will always have them and when they are grown and gone, I will have them to remember our good times by.

4.  Shopping - I mean, come on, ladies - what woman doesn't enjoy S.H.O.P.P.I.N.G. right?!  The only thing I do not enjoy about shopping is when I go to the mall and have money to shop and buy what I want and end up leaving empty handed because I just can't find what I want - that really SUCKS!

5.  Traveling - I L.O.V.E. to travel - anywhere and anytime - now if only I had the money to go anywhere at any time and stay for as long as I wanted - that would be heavenly!  But what I really want to do is travel back home and see my family and friends as I miss them all TERRIBLY. :o(

Ok, so in no certain order these are the five I have chosen for this award...I find it really hard to pick just five, but here we go....

1.  Betty over at Cut and Dry

2.  Avinnyc over at Steinway Street

3.  Kimi over at So Many Kids, So Little Time

4.  Corrie over at My Pickle Talks Autism

5.  Whispering Writer over at Airing My Dirty Laundry

Again, thank you to my good friend, Steven for this wonderful award.   Now, those of you whom I've passed it on to please play along!  On another note, since it is so hard to choose just 5 - any of you who follow me are also up for this award so feel free to grab it and post it on your blogs as well.

Have a great Sunday everyone! 
Big hugs, Trac~ :o)
