My First Award!

Wow, I thought it would take awhile before my baby blog got one, but get one I did! Thanks Magaly Guerrero of Pagan Culture for the nomination!

The way it works is I'm supposed to say 7 things about myself and then nominate 7 other blogs.

1.) The hubby and I are both foodies, but he is by far the better cook (my mother was too paranoid to let me do much in the kitchen).

2.) I took swim lessons awhile ago to overcome my fear of the water. They didn't really stick so well, but I tried.

3.) As a reward for trying, I signed up for bellydance classes at the local rec center. I've been doing that ever since.

4.) I experimented with all sorts of crazy products before I learned to love my hair and it's natural curls. Yep, that includes both Jheri Curl and relaxer.

5.) I've been out of the country 3 times. I've been to Peru, when I was little to meet some of my extended family. I went to England for a high school trip. I went to Bermuda with my husband's family to celebrate my in-law's 50th anniversary.

6.) My tea cupboard is terrifyingly out of control. It looks like a micro version of Horders. But I drink at least 2 cups of tea a day.

7.) I love to read to my children even though they are perfectly capable of reading on their own. I love to give each character a distinct "voice" when I do. The Harry Potter series was a very big challenge!

OK, so this is the part where I nominate 7 other blogs. Here goes:

1.) Inciting A Riot
2.) A Fanciful Twist
3.) The Blyssful Witch
4.) Poor Girl Eats Well
5.) Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai
6.) The Whimsical Cottage
7.) Rue and Hyssop


  1. Thank you so much! My tea cupboard is also a mess of craziness. I even brought home another tea last weekend. It's a sickness.


  2. My mom tried to get me to relax my hair after I turned 15, and I might have tried to bite her hand off.

    I can't stop giggling at the idea of you with Jheri Curls. You MUST share a picture!
