I feel honored, thankful, and privileged to have met some amazing people since I began blogging almost a year ago.

Mandy from Mandy's Yellow Corner recently shared a wonderful award with me and I have the privilege of passing on the award to other wonderful bloggers. Additionally I am supposed to share 7 things about myself!

Thank you for the award, Mandy! I adore you!

7 Things about Me:
{1} Halloween is coming! October through Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I love Halloween and I love decorating the house for the holiday. I love, love, LOVE carving pumpkins, cooking up pumpkin seeds, making carmel apples, and giving children candy during trick or treat night.
I also like to make Polo pose with the pumpkin on the porch. 

{2} I used to love to play Farmville. I used to be so obsessed with it but FV began to slow down my computer so much that I didn't want to risk a virus to play this game. Plus, I had heard that FV could give computers a virus. Have you heard of this or experienced it?

{3} I will never forget 9/11. I will always remember where I was and what I was doing when I heard of what was going on in NY. My boyfriend's mother called me and told me to turn on the tv. I did so just in time to see the 2nd plane hit the Twin Towers. I was in college and it was a traumatizing day. I stuck like glue to my best friend Amanda and every year I think of her all day on 9/11. I will always be forever grateful for her friendship during that time. 

{4} I'm really loving owls right now, hence my blog header. I just think they are too cute however so does everybody else. I have heard however that whales are the new owls. 

{5} Work has been so stressful lately. All I want to do is have days off. 

{6} I love my grandpas so much. Here is a picture of both of them together and I love it so much. I think they are soo cute.

{7} I am addicted to my computer. No joke. I walk in the front door from work, make dinner, do a few things around the house and hop on the computer. I am always on the computer. I love it so much. I am always doing things on it whether I am blogging, tweeting, shopping, learning, reading, planning travel, working, or doing many other things. Dave always teases me that he is going to hide my computer one day just to see how I react and if I go into withdrawal. But I would argue that he is also addicted...but he would never admit that...

...and I am passing the Beautiful Blog Award on to these lovely ladies:

I wanted to pass the award on to so many others but could only choose a few...
ALL of you are super special to me!

I love Oct - Dec as well! My two fave holidays - Halloween and Christmas. The weather, the scarves, the fall colors. <3 <3

FV...Farm Town...Mafia Wars...Addicting. I rarely go on my FV or FT because they slow everything down. And I hate planting/harvesting, I just want to decorate. :)

True story - I'm scared of owls. I don't know why, but I am. And funny that I have hydrophobia but I love sea life.

And my computer is an extension of me!

I'm totally the same way with my computer! First thing I do when I walk through the door... I'm working on that :]
Have a great Sunday, Love!

I'm addicted to my computer, too. Think there is a support group? LOL.
BTW- Polo is a great name for a dog! He's too cute!

Kristie said...

This is my favorite time of year, too! Super excited for the Holidays!!!

Oh, My Darling said...

Yay for owls and grandpas!

Loved this post... You know, one funny thing did happen on 9/11... the thought of you running like a bat out of hell from Parks Tower basement during the fire will forever make me laugh. Didn't make me laugh at the time because you were MIA and we were all terrified, but now it makes me giggle.
I loved having a roommate after 9/11
