Blogging Friends

One of the things I love about blogging is all of the online friends I have made. True, I have a few wonderful friends who blog AND whom I have met, like Tisha. There is also one blog friend, Linda, whom I had the blessed opportunity of meeting face-to-face last summer. There are so many others I would love to meet like Amy, Crossview, and Annie just to name a few.

Melissa at Love and Life and Christine at Our Family of Four are two more lovely, creative women I would love to meet. And it just so happens that they both honored me with an award. Melissa bestowed upon me the Seven Facts Award, and Christine awarded me the Versatile Blogger Award.

Now here's the funny thing: both awards require the same thing from me. And the same thing as the Stylish Blog Award which Arby awarded me back in December (he and his wife are two others I would love to meet in person). I am supposed to list 7 random facts about me and then forward the award on.

You know as I do that once I start listing random things about me, I don't stop (remember I went all the way to #10 when I accepted the Stylish Blog Award?). So this is what I'm going to do. I'm going to ask you to just take a look at my 10 random facts from that acceptance speech. PLUS, did you know there is an About Me tab at the top of this blog? Guess what? There are 100--I said ONE HUNDRED--random facts about me there. (Yes, I obviously have too much time on my hands. Either that, or I'm way too stuck on myself.)

And if, after just hearing me request that you read one hundred and ten facts about me, you do not see that there is just a little Crazy mixed in, here's a bonus random fact:

*I ALWAYS make my bed. Every day. Always. On the very off chance the bed is not made by bedtime, I will make it and wait 5-10 minutes before I pull the covers down to get in.*

As for passing the award on, I am not going to pressure anyone in that way. If you would like to list some quirky, fun random facts about yourself, let me know in the comments so I can get to know you a little better.

But here's where I AM going to pressure you a little: Visit Melissa and Christine. They are fun to get to know. Christine is a mom and creative in all she does...her photography especially. She also enjoys quilting, and I have no doubt her quilts are beautiful. Melissa is fun, creative, and loving. Her photos are stunning as well, and you might even catch a few of her "baby" - a dachsund named Baxter.

Thank you, ladies, for my award!

Wonderful!! Aren't blogging friends wonderful!! I look forward to spending a few minutes each day with my blogger friends. It makes the move here that much easier as I still haven't found any friends, they are more acquaintances than anything!

I'm honored to be mentioned on your blog and I know that someday, we WILL meet. Until then, I'll just keep getting to know you better through your awesome blog! I don't know how you are so prolific, or should I say blogific! You really keep up with things, an inspiration to all of us.

I love learning random facts about people, though I am not good at responding or reciprocating (blush).
I will have to visit the 100 page, and see if there is something on there I do not know. :-)
