Another Award! Squee!

Yippee!!  I am the winner of the Stylish Blogger Award. 
Thanks so very much Courtney Rene of: http//www.courtneyrene.blogspot.com for giving me this award.  Its a beauty!


For this award I have to share 7 things about myself:

  1. I LOVE to travel. When I win the lottery (notice the positivity) I'm going on a trip around the world. I've been to Bermuda, The Bahamas, The Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Mexico, Switzerland, Germany, Lichtenstein, and England. But there's still so many places I want to see. 
  2. Even though I moved to the country twenty years ago, I can still parallel park, on either side of the street, in one motion whenever I go back to the city and visit my mom. (Well, my daughter is impressed...)
  3. My daughter looks just like me. No. Really. She does. We deny the resemblance all the time and even tell people we aren't related. (We like to see their disbelieving faces.)
  4. Whenever I'm driving in an unfamiliar area, I have an anxious need to stay to the right. So much so, that my daughter says she can feel the anxiety radiating from my whole body.
  5. I have a habit of singing words and sentences. Sort of like Steven Tyler does on American Idol. Only much more pitchy. 
  6. When I was younger, I was a concert freak. My goal was to see every possible band/singer I could afford before settling down and starting a family. In 10 years, I saw The Police, David Bowie, Queen, Neil Young(twice), The Eagles, Bob Seeger(twice), Marshall Tucker, Asia, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Simon & Garfunkel, Bruce Springsteen(five times), Van Halen, Rick Springfield, Joan Jett, John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band, and the icing on the cake-Live-Aid in Philadelphia, which covered a whole lot of groups I never would have seen otherwise. I think I did pretty well.
  7. I was raised a Roman Catholic. I even went to Catholic school and when I was young, I wanted to be a nun. I'm sure my daughter is happy I changed my mind.
Okay, so it's time to pass on the award. If you don't follow them already, take a peak at their blogs.
