Giddy Up!

Wow!!!  In the short amount of time that I have been blogging, I have already won an award from one of my fellow bloggers!!!

Maria over at Lil Mys Ninja gave me the Versatile Blogger Award!  I found her when she was featured over at when she was featured.  I couldn't resist following a fellow motorcycle ridin' chica!  She's a smart girl and I love reading her posts (especially her recipes!).  Plus she is a fellow couponer and philanthropist - I highly recommend that if you haven't, you should check her out.  Thanks Maria!!!

So, here are rules for this award:
  1. Thank the person that nominated you, and give them a shout out on your blog with a link to theirs.
  2. Share 7 random facts about yourself.
  3. Send on the award to 15 other bloggers whose blog you love and appreciate and then let them know they won the award.
Here are my 7 random facts:
1.  Our local chocolate shop (Richardson's Candy Kitchen) is quite famous.  The Kennedy's have been known to order from them.  I can't survive with out their dark chocolate covered English toffee with sea salt.
2.  Dishes are my arch enemy, I avoid doing them like the plague.
3.  I suffer from anxiety, but control it med-free.  Being more than four feet of my cell phone will induce an anxiety attack.
4.  I am a thrill whore - I loved my old job because I climbed bridge beams on a daily basis, sometimes 100+ feet above rocks and water.
5.  My dream (when I win the lottery) is to own a dairy farm/no kill animal shelter accepting everything from chinchillas to draft horses.
6.  Someday (when said lottery is hit), I will also own my dream Harley - a murdered out Fat Bob with red and cream pinstriping, vintage leather saddle seat, and LOUD pipes.
7.  My mom's first car was a 1967 Ford Mustang and I think that is the coolest thing ever.  It reminds me that all moms were cool at one point in their life.

Here are the blogs that I am passing this award on to: I couldn't come up with a full 15 I thought deserved this...sorry...


  1. And I open your blog up to read your funnies for today and I see this. Hold on, while I send you a huge hug! MMMMMM hmmmm. You deserve it. You deserve it, I repeat you deserve it. I love reading your blog. You make me smile. Thank you!

  2. Climbed bridge beams?!?!? Wow! How cool is that? I'd be deathly afraid...even though I LOVE LOVE LOVE bridges. :)
