After my near week vacation I came home to several awards (this is where I blush and I cannot show my gratitude enough). The awards can be difficult to keep up with so I apologize if I have missed any from somebody amazing.I must admit that i may cheat on the rules… no because I am always a rebel… hehe… but because I am listing several awards here… nominations may be less than required. Please forgive me… ♥
First: The Beautiful Blogger Award.
I received this award from an amazing woman. Sherline from Sherline’s Watchu Thinkin’ Blog has been such an inspiration to me. During my struggles in life, whether in general or from my mood disorders, she has always offered her voice of encouragement and wisdom. I am forever grateful that I found her as she is an amazing force that our Creator uses in a beautiful way to touch others. Thank you Sherline… I am beyond honored that you considered me for this beautiful award.

You must tell why you look at the “glass half full” scenario and ask “what? No coffee?”
I would rather say… “what? No coffee and Baileys”.
You find yourself in a desolate place when your car breaks down. You have no cellphone service, no Walmart, and only a candy bar for food. It is 150 miles to the closest town. What colour are your pants and why?
Blue jeans…. simply because that is how I roll when I travel… nice and cozy.
So people? It`s your turn, tell us, what is the colour of your knickers?
