My Very First Blog Award!! Yay Me!!!

 Now for the note attached, let's see here...
1. Thank and link to the person who nominated you.
2. Share seven random facts about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 15 deserving blog buddies.
4. Contact those buddies to congratulate them.
Thanks so much to Lindsay Gray for this award! I am so new to this and love that my hard work is being noticed! Yay me!!!

7 random facts about me:
* I am a HUGE procrastinator. Seriously, if I can put somthing off until tomorrow...I might get to it next week.
* I can't swim. I tried to learn, but since I also have a fear of large bodies of water I didn't succeed.
* I have three children and one Yorkie baby that I love to cuddle with at home.
* I have a mild licorice addiction.
* My very first job was testing batteries in remote control cars when I was 15. It was tons of fun and I miss it.
* I can't leave the house without a pair of earrings on. Not sure why, but I feel naked without them.
* I HATE cooking. Somehow I managed to be really good at it, but I would rather get a tooth pulled than cook on any given day.

Bloggers I love and am passing this award to:
* C. J. Duggan. I LOVE her Guilty Guest Post each week.
* Journey With Books With Books. I think this blog is done great. I enjoy the reviews and love the layout and background.
* Ramblings of a Teenage Novelist. I love the review system here and how honest they are. I usually find myself laughing at something written and that makes it great for me.
* I'm A Book Shark. I loved reading the Armchair BEA's regularly. Great topics and well written.

* Shredded Cheddar. Is there just one thing I like about this blog? Not really...I enjoy it all. P.S. She has great advise and comments!
* E&K. E & K have a family blog which I absolutely love. They also host a new great meme called Forever Family Friday. I haven't had a chance to get in on it yet, but I love it and am looking forward to hopping on :)
* Reading Romances. If you love romances (and I do) you need to check this out. I read regularly.
* J.O. Jones. Author of The Septavalent Stone. I enjoy reading this blog. Every post is unique, well written, and interesting.
* The Secret Life of Books. I love reading her reviews and definitely enjoy her blog. Pretty to look at and fun to read
* Lauren's Book Bag. I absolutely LOVE this blog. It is sooo pretty I think I could just stay there all day!
* Borough of Books. If you are looking for great, organized reviews...come here. I love it
* Tabula Rasa. I just love the layout here. This is a fun blog with great reviews and fun memes regularly.
* The Bookaholic. I just found this blog recently and I gotta say that I really enjoy reading the reviews.
