I'd Like to Thank the Academy...and Willy Wonka

I have recieved my first blog award! What a day!!



Chris over at Just a Girl has a FABULOUS blog (love the layout- I'm working on trying to get something a little more custom myself) gave me this lovely lil' award and I could not be more excited. An award? For lil' ol' me? She has great taste in home interiors, and shares my love for little home projects. Thank you Chris for making my day! Here's the lowdown on the award...
The rules are as follows:

1. Display the logo proudly on your blog.
2. Add a link to the person(s) who awarded you.
3. Nominate seven other deserving bloggers.
4. Add links to their blogs on your blog.
5. Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.

Picking seven blogs is hard. My Google Reader is way too full with wonderful inspiration ever single day. However, I have a case of the Monday's, so 3 will have to do! :)

So here are my lucky recipients:


1. Julia- I love her hilarious college stories, pictures of Herny the dog, and all around adorableness

2. Cherry's Jubilee- Wow. Do I LOVE the plates that she stamps! I MUST learn how to do that. Also, she loves the Twilight series.


3. Watch the Wind Blow By- She calls her man Carrots, and well she loves Tim McGraw. 'Nuff said.


Thank you ladies for GREAT ideas, GREAT laughs, and GREAT inspiration.

On an unrelated note, I have the best small group from church ever. One of my small group members had a Willy Wonka themed party this weekend (BYOC- bring your own candy). Just because we are that ridiculous and creative, three of us made shirts. I LOVE them. People, all it took was masking tape and spray paint. Please meet Oompa (me), Loompa, and Doopity Doo...

Yeah, I'm that dorky.

Come back and see me!

Oh have SOOOO much fun at the book release party! I live in WA state, semi-close to Forks.. I'm trying to talk Hubs into a trip over there before we move.. once again!!! My kids will be gone the week the book comes out.. I see me, sitting in one spot from page one till the end (just like the weekend I read the first three!!)
