Blogger Awards...Thank You!!

Within the last week I have received a few blogger awards and I was surprised and tickled with each one.  I am so amazed that these ladies thought of me and my little blog when choosing who to spotlight. 

For those of you who are new to blogging, or who don't blog, these awards are a way for bloggers to share the love and spotlight fellow bloggers who we feel should get some extra attention. 

So, I am sending a BIG THANK YOU to Kim at Moonlight Dreams, to Kaitlyn at The Birds Nest and to Ellen at A Season For All Things.  I've recently found these three ladies and am enjoying each of their blogs.
Please take a few minutes to stop by and visit them!
Now, to pay it forward to others and follow the rules of the awards.  I am to tell you 7 little things about me and I am to pass this along to 15 bloggers.  So, here it goes...

**I am a 30something wife and mom living in North Carolina.  I'm a native North Carolinian, which is rare    these days as we seem to have LOTS of folks from NY and NJ moving in.
**I love coupons, shopping clearance racks and thrift stores.
**My favorite food is ice cream.
**I'd wear flip flops year-round if my feet didn't get so cold.
**I love to get lost in a good book.
**I used to decorate ice cream cakes at Baskin Robbins (MANY years ago!!).
**I cannot snap my fingers no matter how hard I try.

Now, here is my list of 15.  Some are new-to-me and some are not but I love them all.  Please take some time to stop by and visit these great bloggers.  You might just find a new favorite blog to follow :)

*Tanya at FrouFrou Britches
*Amanda at Serenity Now~A Mommy's Solution To Staying Sane
*Traci at Ordinary Inspirations
