…to have been nominated for 3 blog awards in the past few weeks!

When I first began this little blog of mine, I really didn’t know where it was going to take me or how many bloggy friends I would meet.  I must say, whatever expectations I had, have surely been exceeded!   I just want to take this time to THANK all of you for reading, commenting, caring, and making suggestions!  Every time I see a comment come through, it puts a smile on my face! 🙂

    The lovely Aubrey from A Daily Obsession and the crafty Erica from Sweets and Hearts have awarded me with:

    Thank you so much ladies!

    – Pass this award on to 7 fantastic bloggers you have discovered.
    – Contact your nominations and let them know they’ve won.

    Here are my 7 interesting facts that you may not have known about me:

    1. I have one far sighted eye and one near sighted eye so I pretty much don’t need to wear glasses!

    3. I am an “Expert Traveler”.

    4. I can do the splits, but only with my right leg forward.

    5. I used to be able to do an aeriel in gymnastics and a single axel in figure skating! Not anymore though…

    So here goes ANOTHER 7 facts about me…

    1. My all-time favorite drink is boba milk tea.

    2. I have Chinese folk danced with ribbons, fans, umbrellas, chopsticks, cups, and plates.

    3. When I was in 1st grade,  my brother took me to piano practice on his bike, where I was sitting on one of the rails.  Apparently I fell asleep, stuck my foot in the front wheel, fell face forward and had a rock stuck under my eye from 1st-4th grade. It was not pretty.

    4. My brother’s name is Andy and my name is Sandy. We used to have a cat and her name was Mandy.

    5. I am a shopaholic, and more recently a fabricaholic.

    6. I am extremely indecisive, I think?

Thank you again to Aubrey, Erica and Jozen for nominating me.  If you haven’t visited their blogs before, you’re really missing out!  I truly feel so honored and humbled to have received these lovely awards.  🙂 Now to those lovely bloggers I have tagged, the baton has been passed!

P.S. Thanks to my brother-in-law (who makes my design ideas a reality), I have a blog button!  It’s over on the left side so feel free to grab it and add it to your blog if you like!  🙂  In the future, I’d like to find some space to add your blog buttons as well but I’m debating on whether to change over to a 3 column layout or expand my right side bar to be able to hold 2 columns, I’m thinking I’ll need to reduce the space of the green background too.  I really don’t want to cut down the size of the main body, maybe I’ll just make all of the font smaller, oh decisions decisions!!
