Stylish Blogger award

Hi There,

Happy Monday!  I made it back from a great weekend visiting Demaree (outside Chicago).  We got to spend some quality time together and then her sister’s baby shower was yesterday.  Such a nice weekend, and boy, was I tired last night when I got home!  I am glad I decided to take today off to recover. 

Recently, the sweet and talented Jinny Newlin  gave me the Stylish Blogger award! 


This is such a fun award because you get to learn more about your blogging buddies. Here’s the scoop, on what the recipients need to do:

  1. Link and thank the person who gave this to you
  2. Share 8 things about yourself
  3. Pass along to 8 fellow bloggers

Here are 8 things about me

  1. I love the Lord Jesus Christ.  I’m grateful for the salvation He’s given me.  I am a sinner, saved by grace.
  2. My husband, Carlin, and I met through a Christian on-line dating site.  I had about given up on getting married but gave it one more try.  So glad I did.
  3. Mexican food (or maybe more Tex-Mex) is my absolute favorite. I always get nachos. If I get something different, I will wish I had nachos.
  4. I love old movies.  Ben Hur is my all-time favorite movie. Old Hitchcock movies are just awesome. They do not make them like they used to. 
  5. I work at a Pharmaceutical company (Eli Lilly) managing clinical research studies.  I work on drugs in very early development (first time being dose in humans). It’s an interesting and demanding job.
  6. Most of you know I am a huge Colts fan.  The Colts are my team, but I am a fan of football overall!  I love and know the game.  I understand the plays and the calls. I played in a fantasy football league for several years and won it on different occasions.
  7. I have a passion for pets, dogs and cats, mostly. We have several (2 dogs and 4 cats---we merged animal families when we got married).  I tell Carlin that he saved me from being the crazy old lady with a household of pets (I can’t say crazy cat lady because I’d have both dogs and cats)
  8. I am not a neat and tidy person.  I have a messy desk at work and at home. It’s something I need to improve upon, but I have a long way to go.

In no particular order, the people I’m passing along to (If you’ve tagged before or do not have time to join in, no worries):

  • Kelly Marie Alvarez:  Ms. Lawn Fawn herself. Thank you girl for giving me the chance to be on your design team. It’s such a blessing to be part of such an outstanding company
  • Laurel Beard:  Founder of the Lawnscaping challenge blog and someone I’ve been having so much fun getting to know
  • Jaclyn Miller:  A fellow blogger from Indianapolis. I am very excited to say that she and I have decided to meet in person!  How fun is that???!!
  • Courtney Baker: One of my first blogging friends and the founder of Practicing Creativity Designs
  • Kelley Eubanks:  A sweet dear blogging friend who I hope to meet in 2011
  • Christiana who is embarking on the Lawnscaping journey. Love her creations
  • Karen Baker:  I’m so grateful for all the supportive and encouraging comments that Karen has left me.
  • Ann Cox  A fellow Everything but the Kitchen Sink alum and current Moxie Fab spotlighted designer! 

Of course, please play along if you’d like. Don’t wait to be called out on a blog! 

Hugs and blessings
