My first blog award!

Cait, a sweet bloggin' chic over at theblessedlife has given me my very first blog award! Thank you, thank you! I'm honored, people actually read my blog and they like it! :o)

1. List 6 things you are a master in.
2. Pass it on to 6 bloggers you think are masters in friendship, and make blogging so awesome.

Six Things I'm a Master In:

1. Painting walls. I've had lots of practice, I've painted 3 rooms in our house all by myself. And I've gotten to the point that I don't use painter's tape to get those crisp edges. Yeah, I know how to rock a roller brush. ;o)

2. training our dog - Hazelnut Mocha. She's agility trained, and usually well mannered. I worked at a vet for almost 2 years and swore I would not be the owner of an unruly dog. It helps that she's so eager to please too. :o)

3. wrapping presents. I LOVE to wrap presents. I'm talking ribbons and bows and ornaments/trinkets, not just the wrapping paper. A friend and I have seriously considered having a present wrapping business at Christmas time.

4. Finding good deals. I refuse to pay full price for anything but food.

5. Potatoes. They are my specialty. Mashed, baked, twice baked, roasted, french fries, whatever...I am the potato master.

6. Worrying. Sad, I know. Its inherited I think. ;o) I think I just have a vivid imagination, if only I could harness that power for good. :oD

Six Bloggers I'm Awarding:

Jennifer at Lovely Ramblings
Allison at Nurse Missionary
Patti at Patti's Corner
Craftymom at Noel's Creations & Invitations
Amanda at Expecting a Miracle

These are all women that are my friends in the "real" world. And I think they're fabulous. You should check out their blogs!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. The weather is BEAUTIFUL here, and I love it!


  1. This blogging friendship is meant to be. :) I could definitely place any of those on my own list, except for the potato one. Cooking is a work in progress for me. :) I love that you ditched the painter's too. It's just so much easier to cut the lines with a brush! Glad you enjoyed your award! Have a great weekend!

  2. Yes, I was proud too when I mastered the art of painting without tape! Your blog definitely rocks and I look forward to it every single time. I think I need to go cook some potatoes now.....your blog made me hungry.

  3. So fun! I recently tagged you in a Photo Tag Blog :) (I accidently forgot to tell you about it-Oops!) ENJOY!

    Happy weekend!

  4. I appreciate the present and support you are an awesome friend and Im thankful for you!
    Your list could be mine...I have painted all the rooms in our house, totally love wrapping presents, make great mashed potatoes and never buy anything unless its on sale too! Im slowly letting go of my worrying, but its def. a struggle!

    Thanks again for the gift!
    Also, I might be moving to texas again...levi finds out in 2 weeks...say a prayer! :O)
