how lovely

lovely Jessica from: here and Heather from: here bestowed on me the Stylish blogger award. :) Thank you so much, it truly means a lot to receive these awards. Sometimes I wonder about my blog, it is not a decorating or diy blog and I wonder what direction I want to go with it but, in the end it is a place for me to put my random musings and pictures and for me to vent or gush about my life... I am always happy when someone comments saying they like my blog! How lovely is that?

Now I have done this before with the 7 things you may not know about me so I will try to come up with some new ones...

1. I wish I would have went to college instead of a technical school when I was younger. I really wanted to be a kindergarten teacher and wound up being a hairdresser instead!
2. I love reading and learning. Especially history.
3. I love to decorate. Moving furniture around makes me happy!
4. I wish I knew how to play the piano...I am in awe of someone who can play an instrument!
5. I am either in fast-motion or slow-motion. Meaning I am either running around like a chicken with my head cut-off or I am sitting in my recliner reading and doing NOTHING! There are no happy mediums for me! ;)
6. I love to shop, I don't need to buy a thing...I just love wandering around looking at stuff.
7. I love going for walks, it clears my head to be out in the fresh air!
so these 7 things were just right off the top of the ol' head, no thinking involved...hehe so I am sure I could of come up with better ones if I would have actually taken some time. ;)

the next rule is always so very hard for me because it is suppose to be to award to bloggers you have recently found and are in the world do you choose?
I will break the rules today and just give it out to:
b.lee you can find her sweet & ever so lovely blog: here
debbie whom has a way with words: here
check out Janet's blog here! here I love reading her blog.
Natasha has a linky she does called 'Sunday Song' which is always inspiring and fun too. You can find her: here
heather, oh my how I love your blog! Check out her inspiring blog here
and then there is Vic...she does so much for the blogging world...thanks Vic!Find her...
there are so many more I could put down here. I know there are some who do not participate in the awards too and that is okay! Know you are read and loved!

now it is Monday...I am thinking of heading to Lowes today and dream about what color to paint my family room. I have been checking out blogs and also Benjamin Moore's website and Valspar's website and playing around a bit. I am leaning towards:
Ben. Moore's Floral White, Antiquity, Revere Pewter & White Drifts
Valspar has: Ice Rink Blue and Italian Ice and I want to see a swatch of Dove far I have narrowed to these so I will let you know when I finally decide! LOL

Have a lovely Monday.
Today is a gift, that is why they call it the Present!

OH MY GOODNESS! I've always wanted a Stylish Blogger Award! But I've also always wondered what I had to do to get one :)
Thank you so much for being so faithful to stop by and check out the sputtering going on in my head that somehow find their way onto my little blog. You are a gem of a lady, and I so appreciate you! Be blessed today, sweet blogger friend :)

I think being a stylist is one of the hardest jobs--on your feet all day, listening to people ramble on and on...and on, getting yelled at if someone doesn't like what you did...then again, if I ever find someone who can do what I want to my hair, I will love him/her forever! Congrats on your award! I always enjoy visiting your blog!

Congrats on your award.
When you finish painting your family room, you should post some photos so we can how it looks.
