As part of receiving this award, I have to tell you seven things about myself. I love the South and I plan to never ever leave! How could anyone resist a charming Southern accent, SEC Football, fried chicken & sweet tea, and big hair? At this point in my life, I plan to only be a mother to many fur babies even though I can't convince Michael to let Scarlett have a little brother any time soon. Hands down, my all time favorite candy is Sweetarts. I'm not picky, I like the chewy ones in the packs of four and the hard ones that come in the roll equally as much. I created my first real piece of literature at age twelve when I was asked to write my grandmother's Eulogy. The thing that annoys me the most is people who wait until the last minute to merge when a lane is closing only to make the rest of us who know how to follow directions come to a complete stop because some nice guy lets you and your fellow bad drivers go in front of him! I get my feelings hurt too easily, but I am learning to toughen up in my old age! I am obsessed with decorating (which sucks because I'm poor), but if I had lots of money, I would spend it on designing that house we are going to eventually own one day. Once I do have this opportunity, you can bet that every room will have something lime green in it.
I also need to nominate other bloggers for The Beautiful Blogger award as well. A few of the blogs I would like to nominate have already been awarded, which leads me to think I am part of a close circle of blog friends. Here are the two I am really proud to nominate: I would like to nominate Tara, Tina, and Laura of The 3 Sisters Blog. They are witty, funny, and extremely talented.
I love my girl Alice at Smile Alice Smile. She may be one of the funniest bloggers I have had the pleasure of reading. Kudos to her for getting a new job, but it's taken her away from the blogosphere. I really miss reading her posts as often as I used to!
Receiving this award was really awesome, and I am so grateful!

It's Never Too Late to Walk the Kokoda Track... Whether literally or figuratively, everyone must walk their own Kokoda Track. It's a physical and mental challenge- mostly mental. It pushes you past your boundaries It shows they are illusions. It makes you reassess the important things in your life. It teaches you mental toughness. And humility. And compassion. It builds your confidence.

Our family park time was needless to say INTERRUPTED as we wrapped her in a shirt and towel and I transported her home, trying not to throw up. I don't even clean toilets people, and I am getting ready to clean human feces off my dog!

Look for pictures of the celebration very soon! Hopefully, life will calm down a little and I'll be able to write more! I doubt it...
Also, I just found out I got nominated for my first blog award...so excited! More on that very shortly. But I am extremely honored! Thanks Squashy's Girl!
