Stylish Blogger Award!

Jessica at My World Made By Hand awarded me with this!

What?  I mean...what?  I don't even know what to wear!
I guess I will just stick to the regular nighttime pjs...

Here are the rules to receive this award:

1. Thank and link back to the person(s) who awarded you with this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 recently discovered bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.

Number 1 is done!  On to things about me...and I will try to make these interesting.
You already know I am a let's talk about other things!

1. I LOVE cheese, and have since I was a wee little one.  I love it so much that I use to consider it my calcium intake.  I would go through an entire block of Mild Cheddar every week just snacking.  Unfortunately I have recently been diagnosed Lactose Intolerant.  So sad.

2. I am a night owl.  I rarely go to sleep before Midnight.  Part of that is being married to a Auditor/CPA/Manager and I usually wait up for him.  The other part of that is the fact that all three kidlets are sleeping and I can get a lot done in 3-4 hours without little ones awake.

3. This is a big one...I cut and highlight my own hair, and I do it when I am stressed out.  Right now my hair is REALLY short.   I do go and get it professionally cut and highlighted at least once a year so that I don't look too crazy.  These thinning sheers below are my best friend when I am stressed...I can cut some off without it looking like it.  But I wouldn't recommend it as stress relief.

4. I crave spicy food ALL OF THE TIME.  I love Thai Red Curry...mostly because it has the perfect kick of coconut and "hot spiciness".  My favorite go to snack is a bag of Spicy Hawaiian Kettle Style Barbecue Chips.  I shouldn't have put that in this post, because I want some now and there are none in the house!
Hawaiian Luau BBQ Potato Chips
5.  I collect scarves. Not really on purpose, but I love scarves.  I think it is because I can wear a scarf instead of a light jacket and totally stay warm.  I didn't realize until Mr. Pepper brought me some scarves from London, that I now have 14 of them!  Colors are: blue, bright blue, gray, cream, bright lime, "crate and barrel" green, purple, lighter grayish purple, black, black/brownish mix, silvery-cream color, brown with cream color blocking at the bottom, orange print, purple black and white that it?  14 yes.  But I still want a red one, and maybe hot pink.

6. I am a Craigslist obsessive junkie.  I look under the FREE ITEMS many times a day, and I have acquired a few free things that I am proud of.  Mr. Pepper does NOT like this.  Our garage usually has a few unfinished projects from this little addiction.  Right now I have a corner desk, vintage cabinet, wall shelf and a vintage sewing table waiting for my time.

7. I am NOT a Girly Girl...but I like to pretend to be!  I paint my own toes instead of a pedi.  I love to dress up for a date with Mr. Pepper, but the moment we are back home I change to comfy clothes.  I wear jeans everyday with flats in the winter, flip flops in the summer.  Although I love shoes and I have 23 pairs, I only regularly wear 3 of them.  I hate fussing with hair and make-up, especially putting on make-up but I will sacrifice putting on mascara so that I don't look so plain.  I make jewelry, but I rarely wear it...except for date nights and church.  I am just weird.

Now I want to know more about some other mommy bloggers!
