Blog Awards!

Flatter beyond words, but of course they make you work type for them! Anyways, my new bloggy friend Mika from Mika's Pantry has given me these. I started this blog just to vent and share. There are days I wonder if anyone reads this thing and other days I can't keep up with the comments, emails and support. You guys are all wonderful and I'm glad to have each and every one of you following me. Even if you don't comment, as long as you get something out of it I'm happy :) Now onto the award!
Now there are rules that go along with accepting these awards and they follow:

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded this to you.
2. Share 8 things about yourself.
3. Pay it forward to 15 recently discovered great blogs.
4. Contact those bloggers and let them know about their award.

Thank you Mika for these lovely award. Flattered beyond words :) Check out her blog, she has the most delish recipes and inspires me!

1. I consider my dogs my children. So much so, I threw our oldest "child" her 2nd birthday. See the post about it here.
2. I love to read! I constantly have my nose in a book. Recently we bought a king bed and I got the nightstand on my side because my bf doesn't want to deal with the lamp :)
3. It has taken me 6 years to get my associate's degree, but I did it! I am currently working on a second associate's degree in Pastry Arts.
4. I got married at a young age and then God decided he had other plans for my husband and I was widowed by 20 :(
5. Our baby is in heaven keeping my husband company.
6. My boyfriend is wonderful and supportive and has allowed me to open up my heart and know I have a future ahead of me.
7. Sleeping in to me, is sleeping past 9am. I think I've turned into an adult based solely on that fact.
8. I am a type 1 insulin-dependent diabetic (and have been for 7 years). I inject myself 4 times per day and STILL hate needles.
