Stylish Blogger Award

Not quite two weeks into my blogging life and I've received an award. Wow, I'm loving the blogosphere and all the great bloggers in it.

So, a big shout out to Heather from Pen, Paper, Lots of Coffee for awarding me the Stylish Blogger Award.  Thanks a ton!  

Ah, but what, you ask, did I do to deserve such an honor? Well, not much, really. I just came out to play. Regardless, let me share with you how it works. In order to accept the award, I have to do a couple of things.

1.) Thank and link back to the person who gave the award
2.) State 7 things about myself
3.) Pass the award to 15 recently discovered bloggers

So, here goes. . .7 things about me.

1. I'm a diehard chocoholic.
2. I love museums. I could spend hours wandering around the exhibits. . .art, history, it doesn't matter. I love it all.
3. I was a goaltender on an all guys hockey team right through my University years.
4. I'm a big sports fan.  Any sport will do (yes, even curling. . .pathelic, I know), but I especially love hockey and NFL football.
5. Call me crazy, but winter is my favorite season.  I love skiing, snow shoeing, skating. . .okay, you get the picture.
6. Thunderstorms are one of my favorite things.
7. I still sit down everyday at 4 p.m. and have a cup of tea--a throwback to the times I spent with my Scottish Grandmother.

Now, time to pass the award onto 15 ultra-deserving new bloggers.  And they are. . .drum roll, please.

Tanya Reimer (Life's like that)
Tracy Buscemi (Forever Endeavor)
Michael (In Time ...)
Rachel Morgan (Rachel Morgan Writes)
J.C. Martin (Fighter Writer)
Autumn Shelley (Magick, Alchemy and Love)
Michelle Merrill (Perfecting The Craft)
Liz Fichera (Liz Fichera's Blog)

Congrats to everyone and thanks again, Heather!
