Aw shucks~

Let me just point out first, I don't brag.

I'm simply doing what any good person would do when their given something special. Say Thank you.  And to all my precious blogging friends who have sent me "awards" in the past, I was silly then, and my uneducated mind didn't know what to do with them. If I leave anyone out please forgive, I know not what I do. 

Over the last couple days my Ave and I spent some time at the coast. It was wonderful and as always, it was hard to come home. But what a blessing to find when I did come back I had some heart felt words left for me in my comments. Along with those affirmations included some awards given to me by Angela at "Foodie Road show" and  Zoe at "bake for happy kids". Thank you both for thinking of me, and worthy enough for such an award. Also due for thanks, Kim and Liv at "liv life" Sandra at "Sandra's easy cooking" Lori at "Little kitchen on the prairie" and last but certainly not least,  Brandie at "The country cook". It is truly my pleasure to know all of you in this amazing community. You inspire me so much!

Part of accepting these awards is to pass on the sweet trophies to other favored bloggers. I have listed below 14 others whom I adore and can't say enough about. They are talented, amazing, and well deserved friends/bloggers. 

 Before I list my peeps, I'm asked to share 7 things you might not know about me. 

1. I like to eat Gold Fish crackers for a late night snack.
2. I get up every morning at 5:45 to read my bible and drink my coffee.
3. I am a coffee snob.
4. I like the smell of Ave's morning breath. 
5. I talk "baby talk" to my dog.
6. I practice singing with my hair brush. Or hairspray bottle.
7. My pj's are 10 years old. And I wear them every night. 

Now that I'm feeling vulnerable here are some of my favorite blogs. 

Check them out!

Carolyn from "All day I dream about food" 
Annie from "Annie's dish"
Laurie from "Simply Scratch"
Maggie from "Vittles and bits"
