Anita from A Wife, A Woman, A Mom gave me an award! She has proclaimed me queen. So this award and the crown I'm soon to get on my back tooth make it official.

Queen Duties are as follows:

1. List 7 things that make you awe-summm.
2. Pass the award onto 7 bloggers that you think are awe-summm.
3. Tag those bloggers to let them know they are now Queens too (and link back to the Queen who tagged you).

Seven things that make me awe-summm? I'm having a really hard time with this.
1. I love my kids. I'm not always the best mom but I try.
2. I'm creative
3. I'm a good listener
4. I'm a good cook, when I do cook
5. I like to try new experiences
6. I'm usually optimistic
and the grand finale.....
7. I like to help people

Now, I know I'm supposed to pass this tag and award on but I just hate doing that. As weird as it sounds I really don't like to leave people out. I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings. So, if you've read this far consider yourself tagged AND awarded!

Well, since I read your blog daily and can't come up with my own topic today, I might just get myself tagged by you, just for kicks. Monica

Cassie said...


I'm going to agree with Monica and use you for some inspiration for todays blog :)

and my husband would love you for being a Lost fan!!

Have a good one!!


Crystal said...

Congrats on the award, Denise!

Oh, and I enjoyed learning a bit more about you from your little questionnaire! Oh, and I love me some Ugly Betty, Jon & Kate, and Lost! I read something very interesting about Lost last night!!!

Kristin said...

I'm still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up too! LOL!! Love ya Denise! Your blog always brightens my day!!

Brandy said...

You'll have to let me know how that "de frizzing" goes. I haven't straightened my hair for at least 5 years...

Have I mentioned that I have two peach trees in my yard?

Congrats on your award!

Carey-Life in the Carpool Lane said...

Great lists!

Regarding the hair...have you heard of Japanese straightening? I've known people who have had it done and they no longer have frizz. But, if I'm not mistaken, it's permanent so you've got to really want it.

Please tell me how difficult that HTML book is to follow. I'm such a novice and haven't really tried to learn much HTML.

Noah's Mommy said...

I love tags...finding out little things about people....thanks so much for coming by on my feature day last week...I'm so glad you did

Donna said...

Hey, when is that follow blogger get together that you were starting to plan on here with the polls? Is that still happening? Did I just invite myself to come?

not a SWF

Janne said...

There are a lot more things than 7 that make you totally awe-summm!
You totally rock as a Mom and as a sister-in-law! Thanks for being you!!!!!!
