A Blog Award! I'd like to thank the academy...and Stephanie!

I'm really honored to receive a Blog Award for this young blog and I'm very grateful to Stephanie at She's In There Somewhere for giving it to me. Now, I need to tell you seven things about myself and then nominate seven other bloggers.

If you've read my "About Me", then you probably already know more about me than you want to! But, Here goes:

  1. I'm hoping to join the Master Gardener's program through University of Minnesota this winter.
  2. I am a crazy cat lover! When I'm through mourning the loss of my cat, we're going to get a kitten, to complete our family of two dachshunds and us.
  3. I love autumn and Halloween.
  4. I am very patient with people and completely impatient with objects (especially those that need to be assembled).
  5. I believed in the Easter bunny until I was about ten years old.
  6. I still believe in fairy tales, but not so much the "some day my prince will come" kind. More like "the Goose Girl," "Bluebeard's Egg," and "East O' the Sun, West O' the Moon."
  7. Speaking of which, my academic hero is folklorist Jack Zipes. My dog is named after him.
Now for my nominees:

Weight Watchers Wannabee

Ruminations and Uncovering: Toward a New Me!

In Pursuit of My Inner Pinup

Tales Of the Incredible Shrinking Nery

Girl Stuck In a Rut

All the Weigh

and one on a different subject: Auntie K's Garden

Love your blogs, ladies! Pass it on.


  1. You're very welcome! :) I'm digging your list. I love autumn and Halloween too. I'm sorry about your cat. Our pets become like family, don't they? We lost our dog, Ginger, a year ago this week, and it still hurts. *HUGS* to you.

  2. Thank you so very much.. I love your blogs ever so... Cheers...

  3. Thanks so much Donell, that is super sweet of you to think of me!! I feel like I've been a horrible blogger as of late!

  4. Thank you so much, Donell! I am honored!

  5. You're getting another award from me! Come to my blog to get it.

  6. Thanks, Donell! I had to wait a day to do this because it was hard to think of my 7 things! Love your new blog, and congrats on the 20 lbs. Can't wait to see you. When are we going to do the garden tours?

  7. Thanks for the award. They are fun to get and a great way to find other blogs in bloggerland and to learn more about our fellow bloggers. have a great weekend! Michele
