Friday, Tie Up All Lose Ends

This week has been busy for me , my kids were off school for 6 days, I had the book club meeting at my house, I have Dip Club tomorrow and I am co hosting a Pampered Chef Party at my house this Sunday. I have had to do stuff with my kids and clean the house.
So I have not had time to blog, so I need to tie up some lose ends.

First, I want to thank Jennisa at Jennisa's Bloggie Design for doing a wonderful make over on my blog. She did a fabulous job and was so easy to work with. I would recommend her to anyone who is thinking about jazzing up their blog. I love it!!!! Thanks Jennisa!!!!!

I also want to thank my BFF, Beth ,for treating me to my blog make over. Beth surprised me with the blog make over. She knows I am going through a rough time right now, and as always, she is thinking of me.That is the kind of person Beth is, she is always there for others. And she is always willing to help people. She is as nice as she seems on her blog. I want to thank her again and let everyone to know that Beth is a very special and I am very privileged that she is my BFF.

I also received some awards and I want to thank Corey at Living and Loving Every Moment for the Bodacious Blog Award.
And Jennifer at Zaankali's adventure for the Spreading the Love Award
And thank you to Mama Geek at What Works for Us for the Blog Buddies and The I'm Fabulous Award. I love all my awards and I get excited every time someone passed one on to me. Thanks again everyone.
I want to give Beth the Spread the Love Award and the Blog Buddies Award.
Pam at Random Thoughts the I'm Fabulous Award.
Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom and Melissa at Hope for the Hopeless the Bodacious Blog award.

I was tagged by The Thrifty Blogger ,the meme is to write a list of 10 things I love and 10 things I hate.
I will start out by saying I love my family and friends but I am not going to put them on my list, I thought maybe I would try to be a little different. We will see how it goes.

10 Things I love and hate

1.I love being stay at home Mom.
I hate when people think stay at home Moms are lazy and have it easy.
2. I love American Idol and The Biggest Loser.
I hate Steven Seagal movies, my husband watches them every time they are on T.V. . Steven Seagal is a terrible actor.
3. I love desserts. Cheese cake, brownies, cake, ice cream , ect. The more calories the better.
I hate black eyed peas, cooked spinach, asparagus and Lima Beans. Yuck !! Phooey!!!
4. I love being married.
I hate the thought of being single again, and having to find another person who will put up with me.
5. I love my low rider stretchy jeans.
I hate thong underwear. Too uncomfortable.
6. I love warm sunny days, sitting by the pool.
I hate, hate being cold. My nose, hands and feet stay cold all winter long.
7. I love water.
I hate beer and coffee. I do not have anything against alcohol beverages, I just hate the smell of beer. Another ,Yuck!!!!
8. I love watching my kids accomplish something on their own.
I hate when they say they can't do something.
9. I love staying at home and being a homebody.
I hate packing and traveling with 4 car sick prone children.
10.I love blogging. I am totally and completely addicted. I think my husband is planning an intervention.
I hate when my kids want to play on my computer. (Of course this interrupts my blogging).

I did it. I hope that was not too boring.
I have to pass this on and the lucky winner is:
Beth at A Mom's Life

The Thrifty Blogger said...

Now THAT is why you have all those blog awards and a big following! lol That was great! I hate the smell of beer too, especially on someone's breath-yuck.

That last one is too funny. I have my old computer set up for my grandaughter to use, but do you think she wants to use it? lol No, she wants to use mine. :)

Jennifer said...

Have fun at your parties! Sounds like you are very busy!

Beth said...

I love you, Jennwa! It's so nice to have a BFF to go through this whole Stay-At-Home Mom thing with.

You tagged me? In all of our blogging discussions, did I not mention that I dislike memes? But since I like you, I guess I'll do it!

We are so much alike it's funny- I hate winter it's too cold, the beach is my spot, actually a pool is nice. I agree with you about Steven Seagal, love desserts- the more the merrier, c'mon give me the coner piece with ALL the frosting!! LOVE LOVE being married, being a stay at home mom, love my low jeans- hate the plumbers crack. Ok, so I keep going back and forth to your list and basically I would have written this too! Congrats on all your awards!!

Your blog looks amazing. What a wonderful friend.

I loved your list. I loved that went outside the box. It really gives more insight into who you are. I agree with a lot of your loves and hates. I also was ROFL about Steven Seagal comment. I hate hate being cold too. I love the heater.

Lastly, not least though. Congrats on all those awards.

Sandra said...

Loved your meme LOL Steven Seagal LOL I can't stand his movies either.

But I have to GASP at your hatred of coffee......tsk tsk tsk how could you? LOL

Pam said...

I HATE being cold too. After being in Guam for 6 years, my blood really thinned out, and I just don't tollerate it. I stay cold all winter. I feel much more alive when it warms up.
