Blog awards!

During the busy holiday season, Hannah awarded me this one. Thank you so much, Hannah, and I'm so sorry that it took me so long to get this posted.

And I woke up this morning to find this pretty award from Sally! Thank you, my friend!

Here are the rules:

1. Copy the award to your blog.
2. Link to the person who gave you the award.
3. Identify 7 interesting facts about yourself.
4. Choose 7 other bloggers to pass this award on to.
5. Link to their blogs.
6. Leave them a comment to let them know about this award

So, my interesting (?) things are:
1. I have a degree in mathematics! I can balance the checkbook, usually!
2. Before starting our family, I worked in a law library.
3. I hate brussel sprouts.
4. Due to my DH's job, we lived in Luxembourg for a whole year in 1979......LOVED it, and would like to go back someday soon. It is a small country about the size of Rhode Island, if I remember correctly, situated between Belgium, France and Germany. Beautiful green country.
5. My sisters' nickname for me is Madame Queen......being the oldest, I was (and am) pretty bossy.
6. I love to eat, but hate to cook. When DH retired, he took over that chore. He is so much better at it.
7. Though I now live in another state, I will always be a 'burgher (Pittsburgh, PA) ... friendliest people in the world.

Now, I'd like to pass these awards on to some of the nicest and most creative people I know. Accept either or both of them:
the Oz

Thank you, Lin for the honor of being grouped with these lovely bloggers. Congrats to you on receiving these two blog awards....loved reading your interesting facts. We have something in common, my DH does all the cooking too, more time for stamping!

Brrr, it is cold here too Lin, about the same temp as you but it's been snowing for 3 days and I've had enough! Thanks so much for passing on the award to me Lin! It was fun to read some interesting facts about you! So cool to have worked in a library! I love libraries and being surrounded by all those books!

Jill said...

So fun to read these facts about you, Lin! I hate cooking, too, and am so glad my hubby doesn't mind!! :)

ALWAYS a treat to learn more about you, Lin! I didn't know that you worked in the library! How interesting! You definitley have one thing in common with our boys-they also hate brussel sprouts! During the cruise, Stephanie and I had to clear that up for them :) YES, they served brussel sprouts!

Lin! I didn't know you had a degree in mathematics -- me too! :)

AND! Growing up in NE Ohio, we always went to The 'Burgh for fun. When I go home for a visit we always fly in there, too.

But! I LOVE Brussels spouts! Yum.

A degree in Mathematics?? That means both sides of your brain work!! Lucky you. Thanks for the lovely awards. I will post them on my blog as soon as I figure it all out. Love learning more about my blogging friends!! Happy New Year to all. (Lin, where do you find these beautiful templates??)

Loved learning more about you Lin! Love your background on your blog works so beautifully with your new blog header.

You're such a hilarious person and so fun to read about!! Love it!! I hate brussel sprouts too!! Oh man, why do they come up with that stuff? ;)

Lisa Carroll said...

wow! i'm with judy - so you're a left-brainer AND a righ-brainer...! that *is* pretty amazing. :) love these little tidbits abot you, lin! and thank you so very much for nominating me... you're a sweetheart. :) i am so very sorry, with all the holiday craziness, i completely forgot to get back to our conversation over at flickr! :( it seems if something isn't in my email inbox (that i check daisy) lately, i tend to forget about it... out of sight, out of mind I guess. although simply "out of mind" is probably more the case - HA! anyway, i do apologize.

i'll post this soon! thanks again... hugs! xo

Karen from MI said...

Hi Lin! I LOVE reading little tidbits about YOU! Now that is really something that you have a degree in mathematics! I don't have that, BUT I can balance our checkbook to the PENNY each month! If I can't, I'll call on YOU, Lin! :) Count me in with the hating of brussel sprouts, too, but then again, I don't like HOT VEGGIES! Your work is SO PERFECT and CLEAN (I just HAD to mention this, Lin.) I'm looking forward to seeing what you create in 2010, too. I KNOW it will be very INSPIRING, as ALL of your work is. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Love, Karen xoox
