Kreativ Blogger Award

My very first...blogger award...I am so excited!! Thank you so much to Natalie at This Purple Crayon, which is a beautifully unique blog so I'm happy she thought of me!  Thank you Natalie!

Here's how the award works:

•Thank the person who gave this to you.
•Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
•Link the person who nominated you.
•Name seven things about yourself that no one would really know.
•Nominate seven "Kreativ Bloggers."
•Post links to the seven blogs you nominate.
•Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated   them.

I have to try to find seven different traits of mine  not listed on my list of 21, over on my left sidebar so here goes:
  1.  I stick my foot in my mouth often; (example) I went to a visitation tonight and told the family "Thank You" instead of "I am so sorry for your loss."  I'm not insensitive just tongue-twisted.
  2.  I am easy to live with-(the opposite of a high maintenance woman) or so my husband says. 
  3.  I am a vegetarian who eats locally-raised meat (odd, yes) so if I'm eating at a restaurant I will only order veggie options but in my own home I might have bacon from a local farmer's market.  My switch to part-time meat-eater came after reading Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Mineral plus I had several blood tests done, showing that I have a serious anemia issue.  Does this make me high-maintenance?-luckily, my family doesn't think so!!  
  4.  As a young child I had open heart surgery on my mitral valve twice...thus the wide gap between my two naturally-born children.
  5.  Both  of these sweet children were premature (3 lbs, 4 ozs, and 4 lbs, 4 ozs) yet fully developed and healthy!
  6.  I am an eternal optimist, generally happy and try to see the good in all. 
  7.  I was a bartender and worked for years in the restaurant business before I went to graduate school to get my degree in Library Science.  People are generally surprised by this.   Oh, and I have a tattoo of Winnie-the-Pooh! 

Okay, that wasn't so hard.
Here are my 7 favorite bloggers where I try to read everyday! 
Please check out  these marvelous blogs!  Happy Reading!
Thank you again to Natalie of This Purple Crayon for thinking of me!!
Now I have to stop blogging so I can watch a movie and eat popcorn with my night owl husband.

Congrats on your first blogger award ... I'm sure you'll have many more to come.

Thanks for thinking of my blog -- I appreciate it.

And your personal info was very interesting. A vegetarian who eats bacon? Interesting. And I would do the exact same thing about saying "Thank you.?" I'm sure that is a stressful situation; and I'm sure they understood.
