The Stylish Blogger Award!

A huge thank you to Lisa at Susanna's Apron  for presenting me with a "Stylish Blogger Award"!  How cool is that?  Be sure to check out Lisa's blog!  Her writing is encouraging, thought-provoking, and personable.  I especially like the way she applies God's Word to some everyday situations in such a clear manner.

I now get to share seven things about myself and then introduce ten lovely blogs that I think are stylish!

About me:

1. I am a pretty good cook, but not really a baker.  This is mainly because I am a self-proclaimed fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants type cook.  I go more by my senses.  With baking, it is much more of a "science" and you cannot as easily just change it up.

2. When I was in the fifth grade, we did reports on a state other than our own.  I had Mississippi and did a really good job on the researching and writing of the report.  I even finished all of the "steps" on-time.  When it came time to do the oral report in front of the class, I lied and told the teacher that I wasn't done with it.  I did this every day until it was too late to still do the oral report.  I then turned it in and the teacher said that I would have gotten an "A-" if I had turned it in on time.  It was most of our grade for the quarter and I received a "D" in the class.  I hadn't thought that all the way through, because I was in serious trouble.  I never told my parents or my teacher that I had it finished on time, but was avoiding getting in front of the class.

3. I am a HUGE NCIS fan!  If you follow me on Twitter or are my friend on Facebook, you probably already know this.  I tend to turn away at the gross stuff, but absolutely love how they focus on and develop the characters.  I have the first seven seasons on DVD, so if there isn't a marathon on when I need want it, I can put on my very own!

4. I love listening to Disney Radio with "Buddy".  A lot of the music on there reminds me of some of my favorite 80's music.  I am a fan of several teen

5. A few years after I graduated from college, I was diagnosed with a reading comprehension problem and dyslexia.  It was never discovered or really even tested for until I was taking a group counseling facilitator class at the community college and my professor picked up on it. 

6.  I am not afraid of heights, but I am afraid of falling.  I can be way up in the air as long as I am somewhere that seems stable (like looking out the top of the Gateway Arch or down from a tall amusement park ride).  I do, however, get scared standing on a chair or ladder.

7.  I honestly get excited when a little leaf appears on my family tree at

Here are the stylish bloggers I recommend that you check out.  I consider them all stylish in their own ways.  These are in no particular order.

9. Little Green Notebook

  1. Thanks for the kudos, Stephanie! My kids and I went up the Empire State Building a couple of weeks ago. That was a height to fear! But it wasn't really scary because it was so secure. I've baked by intuition, and you're right - it doesn't work very well, lol! Still, I always throw flaxmeal in everything I bake.

  2. You're welcome, Lisa! I would love to visit the Empire State Building. I used to try to add fresh-ground flax seed in a few things, then got out of the habit. Should probably start that up again. I can't remember what the health benefits were, but do know that it is something I need. How is flaxmeal different? What all do you put it in? Thanks!
