One Lovely Blog Award

I just opened my e-mail and found that Marsha of The Better Baker (she’s a good cook but a better baker) has given be the One Lovely Blog Award.

Before I continue with this award, I’d like to take a moment to introduce you to Marsha’s wonderful blog if you haven’t visited her before.  First off, she has a page with links to her column in the Leader Enterprise (the paper of Montpelier, OH!)  She even has a cookbook.   Marsha also hosts a link party every Friday, Weekend Potluck so go link up your favorite recipes or see what others are cooking.  Okay, now back to the award.  

Rules of the Award:
1. Display the blog award.
2. Create a link to the site that nominated you.
3. Write 7 random facts about yourself.
4. Display the links of the blogs you love and pass on the award

Okay, 1 and 2 are completed so onto 3:  7 random facts about myself.

  1. I am the youngest of 3.  My sister is the oldest and attended OSU (Ohio State) then comes my brother who attended IU (Indiana University) and then 7 years later I came along and I attended OSU, like my sister.
  2. It’s summer olympics time and I remember LOVING to watch the olympics when I was a kid.  Regarding summer olympics, I used to LOVE watching gymnastics and swimming.  I remember my one friend’s older sister had a poster of Mark Spitz in his speedo “sporting” all his medals on her wall and I also remember Olga Korbut’s amazing flexibility on the balance beam!
  3. My first celebrity crush was Donny Osmond….he was sssssoooo cute!
  4. So often, I join a volunteer organization to just help to find myself having volunteered to lead something…I need someone to save me from myself!
  5. Not only am I the third child in my family, my husband is the third child in his and the two of us have 3 children…..we must have a thing for the number 3!
  6. I was born in Iowa but grew up in Kentucky.  In fact, my parents still live in the house I grew up in (KY).
  7. You will find me taking my knitting everywhere I go.  It makes waits at the doctor’s office go much more quickly.  One of my favorite take a long projects are socks!
Okay, now onto number 4: blogs I love.  This is so hard because I LOVE all the blogs I follow.  So we go.
