An Award and A Tag

What a sweet surprise, I opened a comment today from the Sherry at Midnight Scrapper, and she sent me this sweet award. She has 2 fun blogs I love to read, It's Just Me coffee & Altered to Perfection. Stop by and say hi, she loves to make new friends too. So I would like to share this award with some of my wonderful bloggy friends too.

“These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”
The awards go to:
Paula Sweet Pea, Tina, Christine, Laura, Stacy, Heather, Lee, Jen That was hard to just pick 8 of you. I have a long list of people who I've met in blogland that I've grown to call friends. So I would award you all, but I'll catch you all soon.
So now on with the Tag. My friend Jen she has a wonderful blog The Perfect Umbrella and Jen is one of my few friends that I know live and in person in the blog world and we go to church together. I'd love for you all to meet her, so if you get a chance stop by her blog and say hi, it'll be worth the trip.
So here is the tag, oh and ladies who I awarded above and Sherry, (except Jen because she tagged me) consider your self tagged too. So Jen shortened the items to 3 Random things about yourself just 3 not so overwhelming is it? So let's see.
1. When I was backpacking in upper Yosemite in high school I had 4 close encounters with bears in 5 days, and the last one I woke up to a bear sniffing the bottom of my sleeping bag looking for snacks.
2. I was a manicurist when I was 19 to 23 years old, even owned a beauty salon in that time. Now I don't even polish my nails, and I rarely get a manicure.
3. I'm allergic to shell fish, I don't just mean like a couple hives, or an itchy mouth we are talking tongue swelling throat closing I can't breathe allergic. Needless to say I'm very careful about eating things like dips and Chinese food. It can be a real party stopper.
Okay there you go 3 very odd random facts about me.

Oh my gosh, Carol! I can't get over the bear story!!!! Geesh!!!! We love Yosemite, have our next trip planned for Easter weekend there. And I see now that I've really taken for granted our past safety (and my sometimes whimsical attitude toward the bear canisters :)). Good to know!! (And thanks so much for the fun award!!!).

Tina said...

Thank you so much for the award! I'm not sure if I will award and tag because I'm relatively new and don't have that many bloggy friends that I feel like I know well.
I can be so lame, I'm so late on this comment! Let me just say about the bears....YIKES!!! Did you know that bears will occasionally MAUL people??? Oh my goodness. I lived in Alaska and we were always being told stories of me the willies! Oh and bummer about the shell fish, I can imagine
that it would indeed stop a party! No mystery food for you!
You have been so sweet to me, thanks for all your love! Our Father is so good to give us one another!

In Him,
