Okay girls...I have been COMPLETELY remiss in thanking each and everyone of you for the wonderful Awards you have so sweetly given me.
I am putting them on in a group and sending on the Awards to my wonderful Blog friends.

I have been TAGGED by
KIM from
The rules are:
1. Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.

3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blog.

4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Here are the 7 facts about myself!
1. Never had any self confidence to step up and be in front
2. Hate being on the shorter side of height ( 5'1-3/4" - ick!)
3. Cry, even if it's inside, when I see ANY animal that has been injured/killed
4. Always (still do) wanted a B&B with gift shop attached
5. Always wanted just boys not girls....only because I think I'd go crazy with their mood Having just me is enough!
6. Always faught for privacy in my home - 3 sons and a husband leaves one with little room to go
7. Worked as a nurses aid in our local hospital all through high school - loved it.

  3. Congratulations on your awards, Karen!

    I enjoyed reading your random things about you and things that make you happy! I'm now finding out the difference in raising a girl after a boy...and they're 10 years apart! I think you're definitely right about the mood swings and she's only 9 now! lol!
