My very first award and my new mission

I have been awarded my very first blogger award. Woohoo! How exciting, a Major Award! I would like to thank Lisa for nominating me, she was my guide into the world of blogging.

So first I must pick 5 of my reads. That is very hard to narrow down but I must.

1. First up, Christie. I know Christie from a local Yahoo group of moms who have children with Special Needs. Christie has her hands full, literally, but she still manages to be gorgeous, funny and most of the time SANE!
2. MJ. MJ is one of my bloggy friends from Canada. She was also the victim of my first ever swap but I was rewarded by being hers also. I enjoy reading about her girls, her reno and all her crafting.
3. Saucy. Ms. Saucy was my first foray into a "crafty blog", she was also the person who gave me encouragement and opportunity to be involved in my first swap. I love reading about her adventures, seeing her creativity shine and even discovered we have some things in common.
4. Mrs. G. Mrs. G. is just cool. Her blog is entertaining, always insightful and she introduced me to the idea of a Secret Boyfriend and the Women's Colony. Good times are had by all at Derfward Manor.
5. Last but not least is Miss Keetha at Write Kudzu. We banded together through the 5k a$& project which she has done much better at then I, I love reading about her upcoming wedding, reading about her travels, coming from a Southern Gal I love to read about her South, the recipes, the book reviews, it is always fun at Keethas.

For those who won, here are the steps you need to take, in order to award your coolest blogs!

1. Place the logo on your blog

2. Add a link to the person who awarded you
3. Nominate other blogs for this award
4. Add links to those blogs
5. Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs
6. Give a reason why you consider their blogs cool

I have decided to take the challenge over at Thrifty Decor Chick to declutter and organize.

First up I tackled my bedroom, since it is always the last to be cleaned up. DH is obviously scared as I have been told to stay away from his bedside table. Men! I have lots more to do but I like the idea of starting and staying with one room until it is done. I've already thrown away one big bag of garbage, have a big bag for DI and a box to be moved downstairs. I just need to wash walls behind my bed, vacuum under my bed and it is on to the next room. I hope to be completed by the time Spring rolls around so my spring cleaning will be done. :)

To come, in honor of K3's 7th Birthday I am going to write the saga of his birth. Stay tuned!

Thanks for the award!

Thanks as well for the kind words regarding my grandmother's passing. I managed to get everyone off to their destinations today so that quiet once again returns to our home.
