Last week, I received a sweet little notification from my scrapbooking friend Cindy, aka Cindy’s Pages In Time. Thanks so much Cindy…you made my day!! A few days later, my friend Pendra sent me the same award!! I appreciate your kindness, Pendra, but dang it…I was going to send this on to YOU too!

Coincidentally, this picture looks EXACTLY like the strawberry shortcake dessert I made for Canada Day, but…horror of horrors… I didn’t take a photo!!

Now I have to pass this on to 7 blogging friends.  That is definitely the hardest part because there are so many wonderful blogs and friends out there!! I hate choosing, but choose I must, so in no particular order, I pass this yummy award onto these lovely people:   Michelle at Michelle’s Scrap Bits, Renee at Luv This Scrap, Patty at A Sassy Scrapper, Shawn at Poetry in a Pot of Tea,  Sharon at That Girl Fritchey, Izzy at Write Snap Scrap, and Natasha at Moments of Tranquility.

I met all these wonderful scrapbookers over at, and have been inspired by their designs and enjoyed their friendship for over a year.  I have to say, it was soooo tough to pick only SEVEN, so if another award comes my way, I certainly have a long list of other blogs that I can share it with 🙂

Now comes Part 2 of this award….listing 7 random facts about ME!  Hmmmm, not sure if I want you to know all my deep dark secrets, but here we go:

7.  I’m allergic to every pet/animal around, but when I was young, I had the following pets (and I’m a city girl!): turtles, rabbit, duck, gerbils.

My duck “Buttercup”

6. Even though I’m allergic to most creatures, I have a tender heart and soft spot for all of them, even spiders and snakes….but I hate magpies.

My Arch Enemy

5.  I appear to be a calm person, but I’m a horribly impatient driver and use my horn…a LOT. Even my kids tell me to lay off the horn.  Then two weeks ago I met someone else with road rage.  An “old lady” with white hair pursued me in a car chase in my neighbourhood after I accidentally cut her off at the grocery store.  Lesson learned…my horn is now silent.

Re-Enactment of Car Chase

4.  This week I travelled up north on a 3-day business trip.  The only time I watch tv is in a hotel room.  There I lay in my bed eating Cheetos and Popcorn….while watching “Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss edition.  I lost my appetite.

Cheezies AND a bath?? Heaven!

3.  I don’t take showers, only baths.  And wash my hair in the kitchen sink. Yep.

My nightly ritual

2.  I don’t drink coffee or alcohol but have always been in LOVE with Earl Grey tea, with lots of milk and sugar.

I might as well be British…because this is my constant companion

1.  I have nice thick wavy hair….but HATE to do anything with it.  I don’t have bad hair days, but I have lazy hair days and wear lots of pony tails.  I only go to the salon a few times a year because I think it takes too long to cut or colour my hair.

My pony tail role model

Whew!  Now that I’ve revealed these secrets here, I’m feeling a little like a Catholic school girl who has gone to Confession…ha ha!  Bonus fact:  I was brought up Catholic but my spiritual beliefs are a combo of all the great religions in the world

And that’s enough secrets for now…. Peace 🙂

    mmmm… Earl grey with milk and sugar. Just my style! Although I also love my coffee and wine… Have you tried cream of earl grey – it is a loose leaf tea that is fantastic! This was a fun post – hope the trip was good and that I see you soon. 🙂

    Kelly I’m so surprised and grateful, thank you kind lady for thinking of me!!!!
    I know what you mean about the driving! ;)wink wink! I’m really NOT an agressive driver, but I wont sit idly by, letting people “DWS – Drive While Stupid”. I have to gently show them the ways of the road 🙂 LOL. I’m off to try and think of my seven things, I don’t know how easy that will be but I will let ya know! Have a great week Kelly!!! Thanks again

    You are sweeter than strawberry shortcake, Kelly! Thank you so much. I loved reading your random facts but when I got to #2, I had to think that maybe you could use a little alcohol to make it through the rearing of those kiddos of yours!

    Kelly you make me laugh every time I visit you! I think you need to have your own online show… think about it a stand up comic on the online stage of the world. We could charge a cover charge and of course I would be your manager… we would be RICH!
