Wow, I’m so thrilled (and really late)!!

Sarah over at The Pretty Pickle truly honored me with this:


Holy Smokes, I’ve never gotten one of these before, so thanks so much, Sarah!!  Of course, me being such a procrastinate-er, I’m just now sitting down to write about it (two weeks late).  Sooooo, here’s the thank-you and pass-it-on post.

The rules of this lovely award are as follows:

1. Thank the person who nominated you

2. Add The One Lovely Blog Award / The Very Inspiring Blogger
Award to your post.

(I just copied and pasted from Sarah’s post)

3. Share 7 things about yourself.

4. Pass the award on to 10 nominees.

5. Include this set of rules.

6. Inform your nominees by posting a comment on their blogs.


So…here you go:

1.  I’m a shoe hound.  My favorite store is DSW, and I’ve been a premier member now for the 3rd year in a row (that only means that I spend more $$ there than I should).

2.  I don’t do Facebook.  Oh, I have a profile and everything, I just don’t log on.

3.  I play a LOT of tennis.

4.  I just finished my first round of P90X.  WOW, love it, and I’ll be doing it again come January.  I highly recommend it.

5.  I live in Atlanta (northern ‘burbs) with my DH of 20 (!) years and two middle school aged kids.

6.  I used to be a pharmacist, but when my kids were born, I “retired”.  I’ve never regretted that decision. 

7.  I’m in such awe of all of you bloggers that can have popular blogs.  Good writing is a gift, and I don’t seem to have it.  Oh, I can throw a few words on the page and get my point across, but to do it with flourish, humor, etc; now, that’s a talent.  Kudos to all of you who do it so well.  I appreciate the amount of time and work that goes into it.  I follow a good number of your blogs, although I’m mainly a lurker, just reading and enjoying.

The 10 nominees that I had in mind to pass this to have already received this award by those that can get their act together and do things in a more timely manner than me.

Okay, now back to sewing.  Currently, I’m working on Vogue 8825 using some slinky from stash.  I hope to be finished with it by tomorrow.

  1. Oh you will look great in 8825!! Cant wait to see it.

  2. Congratulations! I know exactly how you feel about writing, because it’s a chore for me, too. i remember through all my schooling the comments always were along the lines of “too concise”. Yup. If you can say it in 3 words, why write 35? I, too, “retired” when my children arrived, and although i struggle sometimes with living so counter-culturally, I do not regret the decision! BTW, I love the Vogue 8825 – looking forward to seeing your version!
