I just got a bloggy award from my friend Beverly over at The Beverly Buzz. She is so sweet to pass this along.
This is what I have been instructed to do:

1. Accept and thank the person who sent it to you.
2. List 10 things about yourself.
3. List 5 additional things you don't like.
4. Pass the award on to 10 other bloggers.

Ten things about me.

1. I love to decorate my home.
2. I make a pretty good batch of cinnamon rolls.
3. I love to put jigsaw puzzles together (especially when it is snowing outside).
4. I am creative and love to make things for my home and for others.
5. I am organizationally challenged, I can get things organized but have a hard time keeping them that way.
6. I am a grandmother to six (two girls and four boys) with two more on the way, one more girl and one more boy. (Both daughters-in-law are expecting and are due on the same day.)
7. I am stubborn when I KNOW I am right about something. I don't like to back down.
8. I can be sarcastic at times and witty at others.
9. I am a reality tv junkie.
10 I love to plant flowers and have a beautiful yard. (I am not so fond of cleaning out flower beds in the spring though.)

Five things I DON'T like.

1. People who tailgate.
2. Asparagus
3. Barack Obama
4. Cleaning bathrooms
5. Injustice, especially to children.

Now I pass this lovely award off to 10 other bloggers that I would love to get to know better.

1. Embrace the Chaos

OMGOSH, we really have so much in common! HAHA I don't have a beautiful yard, but I dream about it. I have a beautiful green, grassy yard, but not many flowers.



Beverly @ The Buzz said...

Yea!! So glad you did this. I love learning more about you. I am also the grandmother of 2 girls and 4 boys! None on the way right now, but our son just got married last August, so I'm sure we're not done yet!

And I feel ya strongly on your dislike #3!

I can't believe you don't like Obama. I would have never guessed! :)
Thanks for the award! I will get around to it soon. I just may suprise you.

Thanks for the award. I'm not so good with awards, but I will try to play.

We have a lot in common too! Must be why I keep coming back.

I never used to like asparagus either - but now I'm trying to grow it in my garden :)
Congrats on the award - it is well deserved!
