I am so excited...

I have been awarded the Stylish Blogger Award.
Me!  I am flabbergasted, awed, just totally tickled!

Theresa over at All Is Well At Home  
bestowed this honor on me....
Thanks Theresa...You made my day, week, MONTH!

& 7 Things about ME..

#1 -I am a TEACHER.  I have taught for 21 years, 19 years in Kindergarten and the last 2 in a public school Pre-K.  I can't imagine doing anything else.  I LOVE going to "work" everyday!

#2 -I am married to a highschool baseball coach! (He is a pretty neat guy!)  Although it is a definite lifestyle, more than a job, I love most aspects.  It has many downsides...won't go there right now.  I love the boys.  They keep us young and  it is a blessing to watch them grow into wonderful young men!

#3 - I want to learn to PHOTOGRAPH, not just take pictures.

#4 -My parents are amazing.  Today is their anniversary.  (My dad was a high school football coach for 33 years... Can you believe a married a coach? ... Glutton for punishment!

#5 - I have 3 amazing daughters....There were definitely times (when they were teenagers) when I wondered what I got myself into....BUT they are adults now....What a blessing they are!  Those of you who have adult daughters know there is nothing like this relationship!
#6 - I have never flown in an airplane. I know, huh!  That will let you in on the fact that I have never been outside the continental US!  I know, huh!
#7 - Most Importantly,  I AM A CHILD OF GOD! 
Now on to the part where I share the love...awarding the Stylish Blogger Award to eight deserving bloggers.

Hi Dana!
I'm glad I made your month ~ you deserve it!

That was great learning all of those little tid bits about you!

Just wanted to encourage you to try slip covering your couch even though I am stressed beyond belief with my chairs right now....The only thing you can really mess up are drop cloths and at least they are only about $10 each....I hate wasting even a dime, but I figure I can drop $20 or $30 to try to save hundreds on new chairs....

Take care,
