My NEW AWARD and other Monday stuff!!!

I received an award!! YES me!! I did !! This is from a lovely lady!! Her name is Connie and her blog is "little red hearts from God"....go give her a visit!!

This is how the award came to be:
"So here's to all the blogs that you've discovered that you can't possibly live without. They make you laugh, cry, think and feel connected every time you read a post. They give you a thrill as you see them loading into your browser and you get an equally satisfying thrill when you see that they have commented on your blog".

From Xandra: creator, The Daily Dose Award

It is always good, in my opinion, to know where and why these awards start!! I love knowing this is why Connie has given me this award...Thank you so much for your kindness!!

Tag.....I'm It!

I saw this meme over at Jane's blog...Cozy Reader. I thought I would try it. Peggy from Hidden Haven Homestead had tagged me for this a while back. I think I was just busy or just did not feel like doing it at that time...sorry Peggy!!

I am to name eight random things about myself. So here goes!!

  1. My hubby and i first met when we were 14 and then started dating at 16 and never dated anyone else. That was 47 years ago now!!
  2. I was in the top 10 of my graduating class with high honors in High School.
  3. I made myself learn to like coffee. We were very young and being invited to parties where coffee was served. I really did not like it so just learned to like it. Now it is a habit!!
  4. I have NEVER smoked a cigarette. Hubby would have divorced me anyway!!
  5. This May i will have been a Christian for 36 years!! Praise God
  6. My first car was an old Ford. I borrowed money from my grandmother, Mom and paid her back with my first job at the bank. It had a steering wheel that was huge and of cours no power steering. I remember that i had to put all of my weight on the wheel just to turn it. I was smaller then you know.
  7. When our first child was was a boy!! i think that i had it in my head that he was a girl. They told me that i kept insisting that he was a girl...that is what drugs do for you!!
  8. I used to take voice lessons. I have always LOVED to sing!!

This afternoon I am off to work at Curves !! Then after that I am going with my boss and another friend from Curves to downtown Savannah. We are going to learn CPR!! I am excited as i have always wanted to learn how to do this. I think it is something that everyone needs to know. We will have a long night!! I just found out that i have to have this course in order to work at CURVES which really does make sense. I just hope and pray if i ever have to use it that I will be calm and doing what I should be!!

We had our small group post Christmas party last night with a lot of food and some fun!! We played Chinese Auction!! I won a $10.00 gift certificate to Starbucks...just what my FAT does not need!! But oh how good it is going to taste!! I can buy at least a couple of drinks there!!

Hope your Monday is going good!! I need to get off here and get mine started...

Flip Flop Signing off !!

Suave, sexy, smart and strong...sure you are!!! And, those words will be perfect when you get to the S's on your meme. I also saw this over at Baba's. I'll have to give it a try.

My Daddy had to learn CPR and he loved carrying the dummy around to demonstrate how it was done. You would have to have known my Daddy in order to know just how funny that was.

Well I always said I thought we SHOULD have to have CPR to work at Curves -- but they never required it before. (or at least not that MY owner told us!) It might be new though. And now you ARE certified - so good for you! I was certified years ago - but I haven't been for probably 5 or 6 years now. I had done it on my own when I was subbing -- JUST IN CASE - you never know what's gonna happen in a classroom!

I can't believe it's been this long since I've BEEN here! Geeeeeez!
