Stylish Blogger Award

Happy Monday my friends! How are you?  How has your long weekend been?  Are you lucky to be home today like me, or did you have to schlep into work today?  I hope you're getting to relax at home instead of the work trek.  We woke up to 5 inches of snow here today - sheesh! I am so tired of this snow that I am about to lose it! HA!  After my meds started kicking in to knock out this throat and ear infection that I had on Friday, then I finally made it out on Sunday and did a little shopping at the Christmas Tree Store and can't wait to show you my GREAT deals that I got!  I got some KILLER BARGAINS for sure and you will just not believe it!  Stay tuned for that post tomorrow - I promise you won't be disappointed! :)

Anyway, last week (before I got sick) These Are Lean Times but I'm still Hungry gave me a wonderful award of "The Stylish Blogger Award" and I couldn't be more excited! (Thank you! :))  However, receiving the award comes with a few rules:

1. You must link back to the person who gave you the award to let them know you accept;

2. You must share 7 things about yourself; and

3. Pass the award on to 15 recently discovered bloggers and let them know about the award.

So... without further adieu - here are the 7 things about myself:

1.  I have come to totally loathe and hate snow completely now after living here in the Northeast the last 3 years.

2.  I totally and completely LOVE my children but am truly looking forward to mine and hubby's "empty nest alone time" once they are graduated and move out!  Ha!

3.  I am a HUGE college football (Arkansas Razorbacks) and baseball (Chicago Cubs) fan - even more so than my husband.  I am the one you see (and hear) yelling at the tv during the games - not him - HA!

4.  I miss "home" (Arkansas) and my friends and family more every single day and can't wait to get back there.  Hopefully, sooner rather than later.

5. I absolutely love love love restoring things and finding new bargains by thrift shopping.

6.  I want to learn all of the ins and outs of real "couponing" so I can spend $5 total on a pile of things that would have cost me $100 instead.  Tips anyone? :)

7.  I absolutely love my job and bosses (and few friends who work with me daily - Hi Ellen) but wish I had a job that kept me home full-time that I could get paid for.  Meaning, I wish my legal job was a work from home job instead.  Oh well - I can dream, can't I?! LOL

So... now onto the last part of the award - pass it on to 15 recently discovered bloggers.  In no particular order:

1.       Sam at The Junk House
2.       Masshole Mommy
3.       Me, Myself and Aphrodite
4.       Heard it from the Hills
5.       Tanya at Froufroubritches
6.       Tammigirl at Auntie Kitten's Antics
7.       Three Boys and an Old Lady
8.       Callie at Love My Mr. Mason
9.       Danielle at Life with Two Boys
10.     Jackie at Jackie's Junction on the Highway
11.     Aledia at Plum Perfect
12.     Busy Mom's Tips
13.     In My Opinion
14.     Hanna at Bouffe e Bambini
15.     Staci at The Crafty Military Wife

So... run, don't walk and check out these fantastic new blogs that I've recently had the pleasure of discovering - you won't be disappointed - pinky promise! :)   Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!  Now, I am off to find more projects to tweak and play with.
