My 1st Blog Award!!!

Thank you...thank you very much!  {In my best Elvis voice.}

I was just made to feel very special thanks to Lisa over at A Teacher's Bag of Tricks!!!

I started blogging last year, got lost a few months later, found my head again, and have been back at it just a wee, short time.  I love to blog and I love all the awesome people you 'meet' in BlogLand!

As an honored recipient (that just sounds fun), I must follow these rules.

The rules of this award:
1.  Thank the person who nominated you with a link back to them. {Check}
2. Tell 7 things about yourself  {Check - see below}
3. Pass this on to 15 newly discovered blogs and let them know they've received an award!  {whew - Check - they're down there, too}
