Shiny! Stylish Blogger Award Fun.


I feel like I need to roll out the red carpet and go buy a fancy party dress (oo, and some sweet shoes!) because it's award season around the blogosphere.  I have been awarded the Stylish Blogger Award from Homeschool Mo, and I'm so thrilled she thought of me.  Thanks! 

The Rules for accepting the award are:

  • Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award
  • Share 7 things about yourself.
  • Pass this on to 7 other great bloggers you recently discovered.
  • Contact the selected bloggers and tell them about their awards.
Seven things about myself….

1. I currently have green highlights in my hair, which match my green eyes. This is because I am about to turn 40 and am losing what small bit of mind I had.
2. I recently discovered that gluten is my enemy and am attempting to live life sans bread and pastries and all the yummy things I like best.
3. My kids frequently burst into song without provocation. They are also fond of spontaneous dance parties. They get this from their mother.
4. Homeschool Mo mentioned that she doesn't have a sister and always wanted one. I don't have a  brother and always wanted one. Now I have a very good friend who is like a brother.  Be careful what you wish for. :-p
5. I hate clutter and mess but have given up on having a clean house with all the people living in and hanging out in this place. Sometimes this makes me cry. Sometimes it is a happy cry, thankful for all the wonderful people surrounding me.  Other times it is a desperate cry, searching frantically for my sanity that is lost somewhere in the mess.  It probably ran off with the dust bunnies under the couch.
6. I really wish I had the confidence to be an unschooler.  Life is a great education and relationships are my priority. But there's that confidence issue, along with my love of curriculum.
7. I absolutely, positively adore Christmas.  I even like the crowds of shoppers and hearing Christmas music in November. I'm already counting the days, have begun my shopping, and am giddy that it is just around the corner. Yay for Christmas! My favorite holiday, hands down.

Now for 7 Bloggers:

1. Footprints in the Butter
2. Accidentally Homeschooling
3. Pack of Hungry Snails
4. Ms. Randoms Rambling
5. Chatter, Clatter and Things That Matter
6. Got Chai?
7. Memoirs of a TV Junkie

Now go on, spread the bloggy love!

The dust bunnies stole your sanity?? Do you think maybe your dust bunnies came to my house, too? Or maybe all DB's are evil sanity stealers. I'm suddenly sympathizing with a particular vengence demon. (Sorry, *former* vengence demon. LOL)

And welcome to gluten free life. Once again, you're in good company. OK, weird, crazy company may be a more apt description.


And - Cheater! Cheater! - You're only supposed to tag blogs that you recently found. And you did not recently find me. Unless you lost me for awhile and then found me again. But I'm pretty sure I would have noticed that. ;) I do, however, accept your tag and will trot off to my blog and try to find 7 not-boring things to say about myself.

Those dust bunnies *are* evil and I blame them for my lack of direction comprehension (direction comprehension, direction comprehension. Sounds like something out of Schoolhoue Rock). And possibly not enough caffeine, time, or brain power. I never even realized it said *recently*! My bad!

Oh well, at least you get a shiny award. Enjoy.
