A Blog Award

I love awards, and it made my day to receive a nomination from one of my new blogger friends, Cafe Casey. I have a whole lot of respect for Casey because she teaches high school students and seems to do it with humor!

There are some rules that go with the nomination:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you with a link to the site. (see above)
  2. Write seven things about yourself that other bloggers don’t know.
  3. Nominate fifteen other deserving blogs.

Seven things about myself:

  1. I learned to sew just so I could make a Jedi robe for my son that I saw on Pinterest.
  2. I love party dips of any kind and am happy to treat them like a meal.
  3. Even though I like cooking, snacks, etc., I do not like to pack school lunches.
  4. I think everything looks better with a monogram on it.
  5. I only do laundry on Sundays.
  6. I have a subscription to US magazine and am disappointed when it is not in my mailbox on Thursdays.
  7. I spend months thinking about my Christmas cards. Receiving Christmas cards (with family photos) is my favorite part of the holidays.
