~~Friends Award~~

Karen from Karen's Korner gave me a super cute award today.
This is how the award works:
"This award is bestowed on to blogs that are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

How sweet is that? I am so appreciative at such a gesture. The award also ask that I tell 7 "random" Things about me. I am pretty much an open book so some of these may be repeats if you have read my whole blog~~ I just don't have that exciting of a life, but here goes:

1. I have 15 brothers and sisters.
2. I am a cancer survivor. 8 years cancer free now!!
3. I rode a bull in high school during my brother's rodeo practice rides.
4. I have never liked little yappy dogs, always preferring the Mastiff breed, but I like my little chihuahua Zoe a ton, somedays more than my kids & husband.
5. I read approximately 4-5 books a month and prefer true crime or homicide related books. My family says it is because I need to know all the things that got people caught so when I kill someone I wont get caught. (They have a lot of faith in me huh?!?)
6. When I was a kid I got a bloody nose that lasted 16 hours and ended up having to have the vessels in my nose cauterized to stop it. This was from my brother putting his head down like a raging bull and head butting me in the nose.
7. I used to babysit for a country music star's kids years ago, before he got really big. I got paid in records, T-shirts and concert tickets most of the time.

And now for the awards. I look forward to reading each and every one of these deserving ladies blogs and love the comments they leave on my blog. I am extremely happy to know each of them (even the ones I have never 'really' met) and have been encouraged by their comments and blog posts that have gotten me through many days when I felt I would never smile again. I am blessed to call them my friends and I know that you will feel the same way when you meet them. Please stop by and visit their blogs and let them know I sent you. My 8 wonderful choices that get this award, in no particular order, are:

1. Becky @
2. Sandi @
3. Vaylene @
4. Pam @
5. Bre @
6. Lisa @
7. Tammy @
8. Krystyn @
