I'd like to thank the academy

I got two more awards. Yay!

The first is the beautiful blog award from The Young Retiree.

According to the rules of this award, I must pass it on to seven other bloggers.

So my nominees are:

My second award is The Versatile Blogger award from Shelley Ann at Painting the Memories. Thanks so much!

First part in the longwinded acceptance of this award: List seven things about myself.

1. I can never come up with anything good while writing lists about myself. Its always after.

2. I have a great husband. (Who told me to say that when I asked him what I should write on here).

3. I obsessively watched TGIF when I was a kid. Full House and Family Matters were the highlight of my week. I can name all of the characters from Full House as a result (the characters from Family Matters are a little fuzzy). Danny Tanner, DJ (Donna Jo) Tanner, Stephanie Tanner, Michelle Tanner, Uncle Jessie Katsopolis, Aunt Becky Katsopolis, Uncle Joey Gladstone, Kimmy Gibbler. Impressive, I know.

4. I don't know how to do a cartwheel. As a kid I was afraid that my arms wouldn't support my weight so I refused to even try.

5. When someone un-follows me I become obsessed with figuring out who it was so I can un-follow them back. No luck so far. So if you un-follow me and I figure out who you are, I will un-follow you back.

6. I passed on my insistence on picking out my own clothes to Alana. I once wore a red and green sweater vest with a yellow ballerina bunny sweater (gotta love the 80's). It just so happened that day was the day my teacher was taking pictures of us to make a Christmas gift picture frame to give to our parents. I am now immortalized forever in that outfit, surrounded by gold-painted macaroni.

7. I used to consider myself somewhat of a punk rocker-esque chick. I had my eyebrow, tongue and belly button all pierced. And I paired those with dorky shirts that said dumb stuff like Boys Lie or Don't Label Me. My favorite at the time was bright yellow and had a monkey doing a yoga pose. My drivers license picture features me, my eyebrow ring and my yellow monkey shirt. I have regretted a lot of fashion choices in my life but that one takes the cake (followed by first grade picture frame with other awesome outfit).

Second part of longwinded acceptance: Nominate 15 newly discovered blogs that I think are fantastic. Fifteen is sooo many. But I'll give it a shot. If I don't get to 15 its because I already used 7 on the first award.

I'm counting the first seven in my total of 15. Since these are supposed to be newly discovered blogs I've kind of run out. So here you go everyone. Congrats!

congratulations and want to let you know that I can't do cartwheel too.

As much as I wanted to help you with the "Un-follow" matter, I don't have any idea how you can easily track them, especially when you have so many followers.

Hey, just one and you're on 100 followers. congratulations.
