Happy dance

Okay, I am seriously doing my happy dance!! Bloggy award!! Woot woot!!! Dawn & Raphael over at Just Married with Coupons so deserved to receive this award!! Their site is wicked & full of great stuff & awesome give aways!! I can't even believe these extremely taltented peeps noticed me over here in my little corner, but let me tell ya, I'm hella honured that they did!! 
 They officially made me the happiest blogger, in all of bloggyland!! Thank u:)
OK So,

Here are the things you have to do when you receive this award:

1. First, thank and link back to the person that gave the award.
2. Answer the 10 survey questions.
3. Pass the award along to 5 - 10 other bloggers whom you think are fantastic.
4. Contact the bloggers you have chosen to let them know about the award.

1. If you blog anonymously, are you happy doing this? If you aren't anonymous, do you wish you started out anonymously, so that you could be anonymous now?
I am not anonymous, but I did consider it for 5 seconds at the very beginning. I'm happy that I didn't, but I do just use my boys first initial.

2. Describe an incident that shows your inner stubborn side.
Just one incident?? Sigh. Yes, I am stubborn. 100% Irish, can't help it:)

3. What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror?
I see me. The same person I have always seen, just wiser, smarter, more bitter & much much more tired.

4. What is your favorite summer cold drink?
Pink Lemonaide

5. When you take time for yourself, what do you do?
Funny. The only time I really get to myself is when I do my late evening errands to the grocery store, or the drug store, it doesn't matter where.  It's the fact that I am alone & I can listen to my music nice & loud in the car
6. Is there something that you still want to accomplish in your life? 
Oooo, YES!!!! There is plenty:)

7. When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever, the shy person, or always ditching?
I wasn't really any of these. In highschool I was just kinda there. Post-secondary I had to work pretty hard...

8. If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment in your life, what would you see?
I have had many of these moments. The biggest was both times I found out I was pregnant.

9. Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog, or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people and events?
I'm getting there when it come to myself. I would like to & hope to share much more. I am the most comfortable writing about my boys.

10. If you had the choice to sit down and read a book or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?
I have a 3 hour time difference with my BFF, so if it isn't too late her time, then talk on the phone. Otherwise, I would read a book:)

Ok, done. Now onto the blogs that I would like to pass this lovely award onto....
Katie @ love is everywhere
Brittany @ My abc soup
Erin & Eschelle @ The little fat girl that could
the mama @ getrealmama
donna @ Write now Write later
Sunny @ partly sunny chance of rain
Branson @ Reflection of Something

I check out these blogs daily. They just make my coffee taste that much better:) They are all amazing writers & I aspire to have a blog as beautiful & well written as each of their's.

Okay. Off to bed!! Peace out:)

Hey, thanks for giving me a shout out! I am always touched when a fellow blogger takes the time to tell me that they read my posts and enjoy my writing, it is one of the best compliments ever! I loved reading the survey answers. Isn't it funny how a trip to the grocery store by yourself has turned into "me time"? How life has changed. Thanks again for reading and giving me the award!
