Good afternoon friends! Hope you're all enjoying your Tuesday?
It's just gorgeous out here in Mt. Dora.. blue skies and a small breeze..
perfect day for garage painting.. LOL I did take a break from painting,
and noticed that I've received another blog award! This is awesome!
Thankyou so much, Rachel from Lovely Crafty Home,
for this Versatile Blogger award. How fun!!
Please take a break and go visit Rachel at Lovely Crafty Home,
she has a great blog FULL of fun crafts and some pretty awesome tutorials.
Now, on to my part of the award.. I need to write 7 things about myself:
1.) I'm a 38 year old grandmother, who became a gramma at age 35. Yeah, I'm a youngin' for the gramma status; I had my daughter at age 18 and she gave birth to my wonderful grandson, James, at age 16.
2.) That would bring me to #2: In my family, on my mothers side, there 5 generations of us.. all living! There is my grandson, my daughter and son, me, my mom and my 96 year old grandma. She's a great-great grandma and says she never thought she'd see the day!! LOL
3.) I'm still scared of the dark! It's true.. whenever Mr. Ruffles goes out of town on business, I go to bed with a light on.. and it STAYS on!!!
4.) I've just started to diet. I need to lose just 5-10 pds for the summertime. I'd rather lose the weight than buy all new clothes. Only been on this "diet" for 3 days now.. and, boy oh boy, let me tell ya... BLECH!! I want a cupcake SOOO bad!! LOL
5.) I was born and raised in West Michigan, and moved to the Orlando, FL area about 5-6 years ago. I never minded tourists before we moved, because I was one. Now, it's a new irritation for me. Not to mention, now, when we go away somewhere my sences for being a NON irritating tourist are heightened. I make sure I pay attention to where I'm going and what I'm doing when I'm driving and sightseeing. Nothing worse than a tourist driver going 10 mph on a 45 mph road looking for the next stop. Ugh. Oooorrr!!! OR!! ORRR!! The tourist who puts his right turn signal on and ends up turning LEFT!.. grrr.. Ok, enough of that.. LOL I'm rambling now. Sorry!
6.) I recently moved to the Mt. Dora area of Florida and am having a ball shopping all the new to me thrift stores and flea markets.
7.) Since moving to Florida, I now say "soda" and not "pop"!
Ok, there ya have it! 7 things about me. It was a bit harder than I thought it'd be, but, now ya'll know me a bit better.. the next part of the award is to award 15 equally versatile bloggers from the list of blogs I follow:
3.) Lovely Beasts
7.) Piorra Maison
9.) Shabby ESP
10.) The Polka Dot Closet
11.) Wayside Treasures
12.) Sweetpea Home
14.) That's My Letter
15.) Shell's Shabby Shack
Make sure you make a pitstop at all these wonderful blogs,
I'm sure you'll enjoy each and every one.. just as much as I do!!
