Brand new Blog & Awesome Awards!

So I finally have some time to sit down and write a bit about an award I received from Deborah at Mom's Sanity is making a Comeback  which as I said before - I LOVE her name, because I know I sure feel like that on a daily basis!
She was kind enough to award me (& some other fantastic blogs) the ever prestigious "Beautiful Blogger" award, for which I'm eternally grateful - so big thanks to her - and you should definitely stop by her blog & leave some comment love, she has a great blog.
So onto the "what I need to do to accept the award" part.
#1 - thank & link to the person kind enough to bestow such anhonor on me - so Deborah - *loves* to you & your fabulous taste (of course I'm ((partially)) joking) ;)
#2 - Pass this award onto 15 bloggers I've recently discovered & think are fantastic.
#3 - Contact said Blogs & let them know they've won (I think this part is probably crucial)
#4 - State 7 things about myself. (And for me, that would mean cut your huge list of things about yourself down to seven!

So here goes! The 15 Blogs I think are destined for greatness are as follows ...
  1. Newly Wed, Newly Bred
  2. From Dates to Diapers
  3. Tammy's Two Cents
  4. All Because Two People Fell In Love
  5. Baby Loving Mama
  6. Trying to Stay Calm
  7. Mass Hole Mommy
  8. Mom Spark
  9. Confessions of a Fitness Instructor
  10. How to Survive Life in the Suburbs
  11. Getting all my Ducks in a Row 
  12. A Nut in a Nutshell
  13. Cake Mom
  14. Eighty MPH Mom
  15. Simply Stacie
Ok, so there are my 15 - with no repeats from my other lovely award, so as to stick to the "Blog Integrity" part of it. Now for the seven things about myself ....

  • I am from New Zealand (I'm a "kiwi", and a Maori one at that!)
  • I have a weakness for romance novels. (I know! I'm a nerd!)
  • I have Systemic Lupus for which there is no cure, & I may one day die from. :(
  • I'm a "Mormon", although I prefer, "LDS faithful"
  • My middle name is ANAHERA (Arn-a-hair-rah) which means "Angel"
  • I love quoting lines from movies!  example: "That John Denver's full of shiz man" (Name that movie)
  • I don't like feet. I think they're ugly & un-natural, & am definitely an Anti-Footite.
So there we have it! My seven goodies that really only my close friends and family know of, out there in cyber space for all to see. I'll also add a picture, just for good measure!
gorgeous no? 
*sigh* I wissssssh. Here's me, in all my glory ....

:D Now thats more like it! Thank you again to Deborah - you rock my world and thank you very much for the honor, seriously!

Wow! Congratulations and I like the new layout. :) Very bold - no pastels. Bonus. And I'm Mormon, too. Not attending, but I was raised in the church and am grateful for the values I learned.
