Awards…and I was Tagged!!

While I was down and out with the nasty tonsil problems I was awarded a couple of awards and I was tagged…Ok so maybe one of these dates to prior to that, but I’ve been busy!  I do apologize for the delay.
Thank you ladies….
From Kelli and Amanda
So, here are the rules:
1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.
2. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you've newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
Thank you so much Kelli and Amanda for this awesome award!  I have been neglecting my blog and need to start working harder on that! 
15 Blogs newly discovered?!  What?!  Oh wow.  Ok, so I can’t do that.  I haven’t found any new ones…To be honest, I haven’t been blog hopping to keep from finding new ones because it’s so hard to keep up with the ones that I do read now.  Gotta start doing like Misti and getting up early and going to bed late! 
Tagged by Robin at My Blessed Nest…
The rules are pretty easy to follow…The person who has been tagged lists 6 things about herself then tags 6 other people who do the same.
So here are my 6 things…
  • I have OCD…BIG TIME when it comes to certain things.  Books on the book shelves (including the kids)…Spines have to face outward, they have to be in order from tallest to shortest and the words have to all be facing the same way. I have sat down so many times pulling out all the books and fixing them back.  My heart races when I see books all messed up.  My bed sheets.  OH MY!  If they aren’t perfect at 2AM I get up, kick Zack out of the bed and we remake the bed to a “T”!
  • I don’t like any kind of beans.  I don’t care what color it is or how it’s cooked, I don’t like it and won’t eat it.
  • My oldest daughter, Kayla was named after my mother and my sister n law.  Kay coming from my sister n law (Kay) and la comes from my mothers name Trella.
  • I long to move to Tennessee one day.  I may live at the beach but sand is my worst enemy, besides my OCD. *smiles*
  • I would love to own a Scottish Terrier.  A black one and name it Bella if it’s a girl or Edward if it’s a boy.  Oh, I know I’m Twlight obsessed, you don’t have to remind me. *smiles*
  • I can’t not go under the water without holding my nose.  Water goes in there no matter what I do.  Blowing out just don’t work.  So I try and opt for goggles when I go under.  Oh yeah, I still go under.  As a matter of fact I still do flips, cart wheels and hand stands in the water!
Now to tag 6 others…

First, I am totally addicted to Twilight right now so I get the Edward and Bella name desires. LOL

I am the same way about books.

Holding your nose while swimming is something my sister can relate with. Bless her heart she tried to get it but never could. But, hey, as grown ups, how often do we need to swim under water anyway? LOL

Fun tag. I will put this on tomorrow!

It's nice to see that you are as addicted to Twilight as I am!

I was watching the town council meeting of Forks (that was put on in Port Angeles/My friend is on the board) and they mentioned the movie Eclipse in June of next year (not sure if they will start filming then or if the movie will be out then) :)
My husband and I are actually thinking of buying land by Forks. Not because of Twilight-We fell in love with Forks years ago-We were just there fishing a couple of weekends ago and some of the most beautiful beaches are there. Plus we are major hikers and the Olympics are a great place to hike. It was different camping there though...The forest is just like what you see in the movie-A little creepy at night but so beautiful during the day!

Hope you are having a great week!
