Blog Awards! :)

Hey everyone!  I have been out of the house all day today, so no crafting for me!  My friend Debbie wanted to go to a bakery that was featured on Food Network, so we drove to Bakersfield and checked it out!  YUMMO!  I actually went hog wild and bought several different desserts and brought them back to share with my parents, sister, and brother-in-law (and hubby, of course, but he works the PM shift)....  Then we all went to our favorite Chinese food restaurant, then went to grandma's to visit!  It was a fun day!  :)  Anywho, I was given some blog awards from some wonderful bloggy friends (Amy, Pam, and Shen) and one of the awards was one I didn't already have..... So I will pass it along to some of my friends that I visit often (and they visit me often too)....  There are no rules, so I will just make it up as I go along! :)  Thank you to those three ladies for passing these awards to me!  If you click on their names it will take you to their blogs and you will be amazed with what they come up with!

Okay here is the award I had never received before:

Since there are no rules I will tell you three things about myself and pass this award on to 15 other friends (I'm just making this up here folks)! :)  I could definitely pass this on to more than 15, but I am trying to keep myself under control a bit!  Hee hee.....

3 things about me:
1.  I love to bake (mostly sweets), and I dream of someday opening a bakery!  I would call it "Sweet Tooth".  :)
2.  I can be brought to tears easily.  I'm not someone who is always crying, but I do cry during sad movies, TV shows, the last day of school, and during a very "moving experience" (for example I wanted to cry during the opening of the Beatles Cirque du Soleil show).  So did my sister, so I didn't feel too bad! 
3.  I love to sing!!!!  I sing everywhere!  I am one of those people you will see rocking out in the car...  When there is karaoke involved, it takes me a while to get over being shy, but once I do you can't get the microphone away from me!  :)

I am passing this to: (these are in no particular order)

There's my 15 (which actually turned out to be 20), but hey there are no rules....  :)  Okay, I should be back tomorrow with a project this time.  See you then!  :)

I'd just like to say that getting the mic from you during karyoke is probably the equivalent to removing the sword from the stone! Hahaha!

First off, congrats to you on your awards. You are so deserving of each and everyone. Your blog is super cute, projects are awesome. Love visiting you:)
You and my Mother would get along like crazy. She LOVES baking too. When we visit and stay with her, I totally seems like we are sleeping in a bakery. She is up at 5am baking for has to be fresh. She's nuts! She has a talk show on the local radio station and always ends with a recipe of some sort:) The town loves her. Crazy. Glad you had a fun day!!
