I'd Like to Thank....

Trina who thinks I have a brilliant blog!

First I have to answer a little questionnaire which is pretty much all about me. Then I have to choose other bloggers who I feel are BRILLIANT (see list below) and I give them the award. They will post their own answers to the questionnaire on their own blog and they will pass it along.

And so it goes!

Here is the questionnaire (drum roll please...)

A. Attached or single? Single
B. Best friend? I have a few
C. Cake or pie? Ohhhh, hard choice...can never go wrong with cherry pie
D. Day of choice? Saturday
E. Essential item? My cell phone, I basically feel lost without it
F. Favorite color? I can't pick just one
G. Gummy bears or worms? bears
H. Hometown? Small town on the river, OH(IO)
I. Indulgence? Spa mani/pedi
J. January or July? July handsdown.....January depresses me
K. Kids? No thanks, I like the kind I can return to their parents
L. Life isn’t complete without? My family and friends
M. Marriage date? Not anywhere in the near future
N. Number of brothers & sisters? 1 brother
O. Oranges or apples? Ohhh apples....and this year there is a good crop which means apple butter in the fall!
P. Phobias? Losing my loved ones.
Q. Quotes? Too many to name
R. Reasons to smile? Tomorrow is Wednesday and the upcoming weekend
S. Season of choice? Toss up between summer and football
T. Tag seven bloggers! (see below)
U. Unknown fact about me? I have very few memories from my childhood
V. Vegetable? homegrown green beans
W. Worst habits? procrastination
X. X-ray or ultrasound? Neither thanks, I dislike doctors and prefer to use WebMD
Y. Your favorite food? Currently anything I cook/bake from RebeccaC's recipe collection
Z. Zodiac sign? Taurus

To pass the award along...

Kim is currently at the top of my list of brilliant bloggers. While she may think she hasnt done anything spectacular, she is an amazing woman who recently returned a baby she was fostering here in America to his parents in Guatemala. Honestly, I can't even imagine the feelings she has been dealing with for the past few months.

Nikki just returned from a mission trip to the Dominican Republic, she raised the money for her trip and several other incredible causes by designing blog layouts (including mine).

Andy because I am glad she is still here after her car accident and because she constantly reminds me with her posts as well as the title of her blog that life isn't so terrible after all.

Rachel who has a sense of humor I wish I had. Shes basically all round awesome.

RebeccaC, who should be writing and working for Taste of Home magazine or the Food Network.

Melanie, my Southern friend who will no doubt be a kick ass teacher.

Chickbug whose blog covers everything from politics to pop culture, from kids to beauty. They also have a book club of which I hope to participate in someday soon!
