Such wonderful bloggy friends.

Hello my lovely bloggy friends. I am happy to announce that I have been awarded the Stylish blogger Award by not one but two people. I was so happy, shocked, just in awe that my lovely friends Teresa Kasner and Shanti have given me this award.

As with every award there are some rules you have to follow:
1. You must link back to the blogger who has given you the award.
 2. Share 7 things about yourself.    
3. Pay it forward to 15 discovered bloggers.
4. Tell these bloggers about their award.

So my 7 things about myself are:
1. My husband and I met in grade school but really didn't think much of eachother. When we met again in 9th grade I thought he was arrogant and didn't like him. Then as the high school years progressed we were in the same crowd and fell in love.

2. Ironically my husband's last name is Adkins. My maternal grandparents' last name is also Adkins. My husband and I traced our lineages and found out that our lined progressed from the same family and our link was a brother and sister in the 1700s.

3.  I love to cook but I hate to clean up afterwards and I don't have a dishwasher :( It has to be done though.

4.  My biggest fears are failure at anything and something happening to my hubby and kids.

5.  I love ink pens. My favorite colored ink pens are blue. I will buy pens for no reason but to try them. My husband even brings me pens because he know I like them so much. (weird huh)

6. I love to grow things. I have house plants, outside flower and veggie/fruit gardens. I even collect seeds from my plants at the end of the growing season so I can grow more next season.

7. I am a genius. My i.q. tested 2 points below Albert Einstein's. Which also is ironic because I am fascinated with the guy. (Not bragging I promise..i just find it interesting  because I am constantly learning and I make crazy mistakes on stuff sometimes)

Whew that was kind of hard. Now I need to nominate 15 people. I'm not sure I even follow 15 people. lol

7. Charlotte @ Charlotte's Web
9.  Amanda @ Itchin Stitchin
11. Saskia @ Craft Valley

Well there you have it! You all have been nominated! Congratulations!

Be Blessed.



  1. Hi Erin, I enjoyed reading your 7 things.. I'm glad we met on ol' Rav!

    Hugs, Teresa

  2. Thank you for thinking of me Erin :o)

  3. Wow! This is the first time I have been nominated for an award. So, I'm not really sure what to do. Do I answer the same questions that you did or what?
