A couple of you sweet blogging friends presented me with awards while I was with my dad, during his illness. I am sorry that I missed playing along at the time. I truly appreciated your thinking of me!

My friend, Emily, just presented me with this award! Emily is a sweet sister-in-Christ and blogging buddy. I look forward to meeting her in person one day, if not on this side of Heaven, then on the other!
Emily is a fellow foodie and has tons of great recipes on her site, Marvelous Recipes! One of the nicest things about Emily is that she is such an encourager of other foodie bloggers!
A real cheerleader!!
Be sure to check out Emily's blog! I know you'll enjoy it!!

The rules for accepting this award are:

1. Post the award.
2. Thank and mention the person who gave you the award.
3. Pass the award on to seven bloggers whom you think embody the spirit of the Kreativ Blogger Award. (Don't tell, but I chose eight!)
4. Name seven things about yourself that others don’t know.
5. Don’t forget to notify the seven Kreativ Bloggers about their award and post a link to their blog.

Seven Things about Me that You Might Not Know (I am going to make mine food-oriented.)

1. My favorite flavor of jam is strawberry.

2. I prefer crunchy peanut butter to smooth.

3. I can't make a decent homemade pie crust, but it is on my list of things to conquer this year!

4. I also can't make good pancakes, but since Larry can, I'm leaving the pancake making to him!

5. I generally prefer brown gravy to white. I saw Bobby Flay challenge Paula Deen to a country fried steak "Throw-down" the other night on Food Network. Paula won, mainly because she made brown gravy to accompany her country fried steak - like most of us do in the South. Poor Bobby made white gravy for his country fried steak! Oh, my! Who ever heard of such?! ;) Bobby's dish actually looked extremely delicious, of course! He just should have had judges from "up North," not Savannah!

6. I love Chinese food, although I rarely cook it at home.

7. I am not a picky eater! I'll eat almost anything! My one food quirk is not wanting sweet food to touch my non-sweet food on my dinner plate. An example would be: 
While I love sweet potato casserole and congealed salads, I don't want them on the same plate as my meat, veggies and corn bread. If absolutely necessary, such as a shortage of plates at a pot luck, they can be on the same plate - just as long as they doesn't come in contact with each other. But, if at all possible, I put sweet side dishes on a separate plate - just to be sure! Is that weird?

I am passing this award along to:
Roan at Joyful Always. Roan is always sharing "Kreativ" ways to get (and stay!) organized.

Felecia at Lime-A-Beans. Felecia kindly shares her cute and "Kreativ" handiwork on her blog.

Terrie at Timeless Memories. Terrie shares some of the most beautiful and "Kreativ" nature photographs from our beautiful South.

Mub at Misadventures of Mub. Mub is a 27 year-old American living in the Netherlands. She makes the cutest sock monkeys. She really gets "Kreativ" with them! I love her stories of living abroad, too!

  1. Wow, what a surprise when I read my blog and you sent me the Kreativ Blog Award. Thank you! I am elated! :)

  2. Thank you Connie! You are very sweet. I will try to abide by the "award rules"! I enjoy your blog and your words on encouragement so much.
    About MFW.....I think I am going to stick with Sonlight for Leah and Sam, but maybe I can still look at your MFW sometime.

    The coupon binder....yes I figured out that I could fold the coupons to fit in the baseball card holders. I think that is the best option. I have my coupons grouped alphabetically in that binder.... a page per letter, and I have two pages for some letters (C seems to have alot....cleaners, cinnamon rolls, cereal, etc.). So, I need to get my coupons out of that file box and add them to my binder! I am really excited about my savings!

    Have a great day, and thanks again for the award and for your kind words!


Thanks for sharing! I love comments!
