Oh my goodness! I am so bad about these awards things. It totally makes my day when my name pops up in the list of awards that people are bestowing, so why am I so crummy about recognizing and handing them out? I'm going to do better! Today I'll recognize, and on Friday I'm going to pass some out. Whoot--a plan!

Christi gave me the A is for Awesome award, Mia the Awesomesauce award, Amber the Sunshine award, and Amy Jo the Prolific Blogger Award.

Wednesday I announce my 1st ever contest.

Nicole tagged me in this fun Q&A. The rules in this game are to answer 5 questions, 5 times, and then tag 5 other bloggers.  So here we go:
