Kelley you had me at Laundry Room :)

Now, before receiving this award I have to share 7 tidbits about me and then select 10 of my favorite blogs and pass on the Award!

so her we go.....

#1~  I love love snow cones & Popsicles! 

when I was pregnant with my daughter I would go to target at least twice a week and buy a box of  50 of those sugar free Popsicles! 
 I would eat 10 at one sitting!! Seriously, I couldn't get enough & still love a good sit down with a snow cone!


 I am obsessed with keeping the floors clean.  I  vacuum or sweep 3 or 4 times a day.  Not sure if it's a handed down trait but, I remember my mom sweeping all the time.
and I don't use a your traditional vacuum cleaner either...I use a wet vac!
I love really sucks!! 
I actually killed one and just recently bought another but, not the same as my old one...they just don't make them like they use to.
 My sister likes to sweep as well.


I love the beach! From the sand between my toes, the smell of suntan lotion,  the ocean roaring, sun shining on my face = LOVE!
I would love to live near water one day.
I think I'm ready for Spring!!


I re-arrange the house constantly. Doesn't everyone? :)


I admit, I can't go into someones house without mentally changing things around......normal right?

I have lived in Chicago & Boulder, Co.

I can't stand the sound of someone crunching.  It really makes me bonkers!!! My poor husband and daughter look at me like I'm insane when I tell them to stop I have learned to walk away or get up from a table before I loose it.

Shelly Gregory said...

Whoa, we must've been raised the same! I can remember sweeping at the age of 4 yrs old. It's ok. I love having been raised with no fear for hard work, the love and order of a clean home, and the dignity to take care of what we have no matter rich or poor! Thanks for sharing your "10". And a BIG congratulations on your award!
