Beautiful Blogger Award: You Like Me, You Really Like Me!

Heather of Implausible Yarn  bestowed upon me the Beautiful Blogger Award! Thank you so much Heather. Sometimes it can feel pretty lonely out here in blog land. But appreciation like this, along with my loyal commenters, makes it worth the effort.

As part of the Beautiful Blogger Award, I have to share 10 things about myself that you might not know about me. Being a very private person, this is a challenge.

1.  In my previous life, I was a lawyer. I gave that up to be full-time mom.

2. When I was a girl I read every Hardy Boy book I could get my hands on. Now, I read every Ian Rankin book I can get my hands on.

3. Greece is one of my favorite places on the planet.

4. I've rediscovered belly dancing which is something I haven't done since my twenties.

5. I love satirical British comedy.

6. Although I am a good at sewing, I hate sewing!

7. I still blast the stereo listening to the music of my youth like the Rolling Stones, Aerosmith and Elton John. It's on vinyl of course, although I do own an Ipod.

8. I'm an only child which means of course I am spoiled and self-centered. Not!

9. I'm an amateur bird watcher and take part in Cornell University's winter bird count.

10.  I'd love to own a red Ford Mustang before I'm fifty. I'd better get a move on!

This is the part of the award that I like the best! I get to pass on the Beautiful Blogger Award to 10 of my favorite blogs. I love so many blogs that this was not easy. But here in random order are 10 of my Beautiful Bloggers:

Monika Rose of Monika Rose Crochets
Marguerite of Stitches in Violet
Not Ready for Handspun of Minding My Own Stitches

Happy Blogging!

Thank you so much for nominating me! You have quite a bit in common with my daughter. She is an only child and she recently took up belly dancing.

Minding My Own Stitches said...

Thanks for the recognition. I can certainly identify with lots of things on your list - Ian Rankin, The Hardy Boys, BritComs and blasting the stereo ...

It's quite fun to read other people's blogs; it's like having a conversation over the fence with a neighbour!

Can we take turns sharing the red mustang?!

Thank you for nominating me! I feel like a celeb!
