ME?!?  I received two lovely blog awards from two of my lovely followers...


Thank you two so much for thinking of me.

As for my 7 facts...
1) I am so incredibly happy that my blog is getting noticed ~ seriously I get all emotional when I get a new follower.
2) I want to be a writer and every time I read a comment I think ~ I CAN DO IT!  PEOPLE LIKE IT!!!
3) If you need advice, I got answers!  I recently joked with some of my friends that I need a booth like Lucy from the Peanuts.  Seriously...any problem...any topic...I have your solution!
3) I still look at my fiance and really found you!  Okay maybe not when he is screaming at the tv during a football game...but you know what I mean =)
4) I really do love my family despite how much they get on my nerves!  No mom ... I can't fix your scanner over the phone!
5) I will not have and do not want children but I love all my nieces like they are my own.
6) I love to laugh and make other people laugh...and dang it...I AM FUNNY!
