Stylish Blogger Award!

Last Friday, while the fam and i were snuggled up in our cozy home,
avoiding all the crazy icy cold weather,
I received an e-mail that warmed my heart!
Lisa wrote that she'd awarded me the stylish blogger award!
Wow! I was so humbled, surprised, and excited!
What an encouragement it was to me that day!
Lisa, thank you so, so much!  I truly appreciate it.

As a recipient, I have some fun responsibilities...
I must share {7} things about myself and then choose {10} or so others to share the award with!

1. Before staying at home with my little guy, I taught 1st grade.
Ever since I'd been in 1st grade myself, my dream was to grow up and be a teacher!
Hubby proposed while I was student teaching... 
He wrote a book about our relationship, and brought an apple for the teacher, and of course a ring box ;)
I knew he would pop the question sometime soon, but he sure surprised me at school!

2. My favorite flavor of ice cream is Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla. mouth is watering just thinking about it!

3.  Wicked is my all time, hands down, favorite musical.

4.  I always name my cars. My first car was named "lucky"...
Ironic because she was in more than a couple of accidents ;) 
We also named our first Christmas tree. Jolly was his name.

5.  I take 20-25 minute long showers.  
My college roommates thought I was crazy & secretly wanted me to pay more towards our water bill...
But I don't care what anyone thinks, they are so relaxing!

6.  I hadn't gone camping until I married Hubby... It's growing on me.
As long as there are bathrooms with showers and electricity!

7.  I used to despise Craigslist because Hubs first purchase caused me great stress...
a canoe.
and that was when we were living in an apartment...
we didn't have a garage. so he hung it from the ceiling in the guest room!
i wish i were kidding.

Jones Design Company
