First up is an award Jackie, from One Thread Two Thread, gave me.
It's the "You make my day Award!" This award is for blogs that bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel happy about blogland. Thanks Jackie, I'm blushin' here :)
Next up is an award from Dawn over at Colours of Dawn (Notice that Canadian spelling eh?)
Thanks Dawn! I'm confined to a Ranch in the middle of nowhere but I am a "Blogger of the World!" :) I really feel like standing tall, placing my hand over my heart, and shouting when I read that!!
And now for the meme.
It's two meme's rolled into one thanks to Baking Soda at Bake My Day. So great that she did that :)
I have to share seven random things about myself and share 5 facts about myself, well that's a lot of "about myself" and I'm gonna try and make this quick :)
1. Oh this is harder than I thought, I'm stuck on number one....
2. I've been known to skip things and get right to the point, hence number one will never be filled in.
3. I have three tatoos from my younger (much younger) days.
4. One is the whole size of my upper leg, a bird (phoenix?) rising from the ashes with full colour that took over 15 hours to do over a two day period.
5. The best part about my tatoos? They were all free :)
6. My Dad, who had a few himself, thought they were great... my Mom... not so cool.
7. If I had to do it all over again... I wouldn't change a thing!
1. I haven't dyed my hair in over 10 years and I don't care that I'm starting to get a few grey hairs... I earned 'em.
2. In the month/year of June 2003 I gave birth, registered one child for kindergarten, and my oldest graduated High School... whew what a ride!
3. I would throw my Hubby out on his ear if Randy Travis came knocking at my door ;)
4. I wish I could have told my Dad one more time how much I loved him.
5. Many things I start.... and never finish.
Whew that's it! Now I'm supposed to nominate a whole bunch of bloggers, but in my usual style I will let you pick. Leave me a comment so I can see if you took part, I'd love to read random and facts stuff about you :)
