Yay For Me!!!

Kathy over at The Far Fifty has given me the Sunshine Award!  Thank you so very much Kathy!!!

If you have never been to Kathy's blog before you should really check it out!  Like so many of us out there she has been tirelessly refinishing furniture and thrift store searching!  She has some great DIY inspirations and she has some very creative refinishing stenciling directly onto the new knows she included on a dresser! 

See her post here

Now back to the award!!!  The rules are as follows:

1. Thank the blogger who gave it to you.
2. List 7 things that people may not know about you.
3. Pass the love to other deserving bloggers that you have discovered recently.
4. Let them know that you gave them an award

So seven things you don't know about me...hmmm...

1. I love my puppy Bunny B like she is my child
2.  Previously I was a wedding invitation designer
3. I have a really hard time keeping plants alive...I kill almost all of them
4. My favorite TV show is Gilmore Girls...I love it and keep watching it over and over
5. My teenage sister got me in to the Twilight series...I am TOTALLY addicted
6. I have a slight obsession with Marilyn Monroe
7. I really hate cell phones...I have an iPhone for my own convenience, but I rarely answer it and I have not even set up the voicemail system on it because I don't want people to leave me messages!

I would like to pass on the award to three of my new favorite blogs:
Jessica at Sea to my Heart
Melanie at Oops! Redone

Please go check out these very talented ladies blogs!  And thanks again for thinking of me Kathy!  This award really made my day!!!
