I was checking everyone post for today and saw that I was nominated by Anna over at Crunchy Creamy Sweet for my 1st blog award! How exciting! I could run around the house like a little kid right now jumping for joy and screaming yippee! This is such an honor! Thank you so much Crunchy Creamy Sweet! Please stop by and say hi to Anna and check out her blog it is amazing! I love her cake stand collection she recently posted and her marshmallow crispy brownie bars look to die for!

My Random Facts:
  1. I love all of you! I feel such a connection to all my fellow bloggers out there and friends who read my blog, even if I was unable to add you I still love checking out your posts and hearing your comments!
  2. I was raised by my Granny until I was 10 years old and she is my inspiration for my blog! She was an amazing women!
  3. When ever I blog both dogs ( our beagle and sheltie) feel a need to either sleep on my feet or stare at me! Weirdo dogs!
  4. I am continually thanking God for everything in my life, it is a true blessing! I wouldn't be who I am without his power, strength, mercy and grace pulling me through! Sometimes when I think things aren't going to work out and I worry, he seems to pick me up and carry me through!
  5. I am a total Mexican foodaholic! There I said it, glad to get that off my chest!

  7. I just told my daughter I didn't buy her the new Son of Neptune book from the Percy Jackson series and hide it on her bed. When she came home she asked if I found it while I was out today and I replied,"No, but you have cloths to put away." Then she went in and found the book and is in such joy just like I feel! I received multiple kisses and a hug! I'm not sure I was to share this but I did! You know 11 year old's...
