Beautiful Blog Award!

My goodness, I have received a blogger award from my blogger friend Really I’m a Mom! How fun!! Thank You!! I am new to branching out in the blogging community and it is so much fun to get to know so many great people from all over.

Anyhow, here are the rules for accepting this award:

1. Post a thank you and the link to the person that gave you the award.

2. Pass this award on to fifteen bloggers you've recently discovered & whom you think are fantastic.

3. Contact said blogs to let them know they've won.

4. State seven things about yourself.

Here are my Seven Tidbits:

1- I love, love, love Spring. We are only one month away from the first day of spring!! I can already hear the birds chirping!! And smell the blossoms on the trees. I have several bulbs in my yard that are starting to come up and my first cute little crocus flower just bloomed the other day despite the 30 degree weather this week!

2- When I get cold I use my laptop to warm me up. The hubbers is pretty much always studying for that darn CPA, so the super old laptop that I have keeps me toasty in the evening.

3- Today was a beautiful sunny day. It looked so inviting as I peered out the window until I got outside. It was freezing. Lil’Miss and I went down town to the doctors to get another round of immunizations and we took a walk around the block because we were early. Her little nose just about froze. The sun was deceiving.

4- I love to save money. It has become my hobby and I love visiting couponing websites! They have helped me save a ton of money!!

5- I am so grateful for all of the many blessings I participate in! We live in a wonderful country, we have freedoms that grant us peace and I am so grateful for that.

6- I am loving being a mom. I have the sweetest little girl who brings me sooo much joy!

7- Today I got my seed catalogue from Gurney’s Nursery and I can’t wait to pour over it’s pages and dream about what I am going to plant in the garden. Hopefully it works out better than my Aerogarden I have attempted to plant this month. Stay tuned for the Aerogarden post!

There you are! If you can’t tell I am anxiously awaiting warmer spring weather!!

Here are the Beautiful blogs I am nominating:
