More Awards, Oh My

It seems the beginning of a new year always brings on more blog awards.  This month I’ve already been nominated for five awards!  While I appreciate these pretty little ditties and the thought, I think January will be the last month I accept them.  Why?   Because there are just so many people I follow and they all deserve recognition, so how can I just pick out seven or eleven to nominate? Besides, how much more stuff do you guys want to know about me?  🙂

Since I’ve been nominated for these this month, I’ll play along, so here goes. From the lovely Naphtali, I received the following: Shot 2012-12-31 at 11.10.21 PMScreen Shot 2012-12-31 at 11.11.32 PM

Thank you, Naphtali!

From Layla, I received


These awards both ask that the recipient tell seven things about themselves so here goes:

1.  the only candy I really like (besides chocolate) are sweethearts.  I could eat them like…well, like candy.

2.  I love having fresh-cut flowers in my house.

3.  I hate the smell of tar and asphalt

4.  I’ve been parasailing

5.  I’m a hopeless romantic

6.  I won third place in a beauty pageant when I was 15 (don’t know how but I did)

7.  I’ve never received a love letter.

Okay, there you have it.  Now, who do I forward all four of these to?  Well, I’ll go with the top posters on my blog:
