The second award I received is from by Blogging Buddy and fellow Texan Erica from Sprinkles to Kindergarten! I just love her!!

Ok, so 7 random facts about me..
1) My favorite color is ORANGE! It's so bright and cheery!
2) My hubby and I were in our high school psychology class together during 9/11. We didn't date until 5 years later!
3) I have a minor in architecture - random, right?! I majored at one point in Interior Design, and along with it comes a lot of icky autoCAD classes! 
4) I have 1 brother and 1 sister - I am the oldest! MY sister is about to graduate with a Chemistry degree and my brother is majoring in Biology. My parents are both engineers... I missed out on all those "love for science and math" genes!  
5) I don't like the beach! shhhhh! OK, maybe the beach is OK but the OCEAN is really out of the question! haha! There are TOO many gross creatures swimming around in it! (Ok...maybe that's just the gulf, though.. I've been to the Bahamas and it was beautiful there)
6) I LOVE crafting ANYthing! I've always been crafty, that IS in my genes somewhere! 
7) I am addicted to those ABC family shows! Slightly embarrassing, but Secret Life of the American Teenager? YES, please! {My husband seriously gets 3rd party embarrassment when I turn it on! haha!}

Ok, now for the buddies that will receive my two awards!

    1. Hi Sandy!

      I just have to say that Downton Abbey is my new addiction too! It is such a good show! I highly recommend it and yes, you have to start with the first season!


  5. That is so funny that your husband gets 3rd party embarrassment... my boyfriend gets this all the time and often has to leave the room when someone is making actin a'fool on tv. I'm glad it is not just my boyfriend, because I thought he was crazy for it!
