Awards.....Sweet Awards!

The Proximade Award was given to me by Dawn at Froggaritaville's Bookcase several weeks ago, and I have been so busy, I hadn't had a moment to post it. Thank you, Dawn for this sweet Award.

The Proximade Award is given to blogs that invests and believes in the Proximity - nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or 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 clever-written text into the body of their award

I choose for my eight bloggers to recognize....

And then Renee at Black 'n Gold Girl's ....gave me the Honest Scrap Award...

As a part of this award I have to tell you 10 honest things about me and pass the award on to 10 more bloggers!

Ten Honest Things About Me are:

1. I love the color purple, and I ain't talking about the book or the movie!

2. I am a rose fanatic - I have over 80 roses bushes in our backyard!

3. I have four sons, Coleman, Clayton, Calen and Cassidy.

4. I have been married 27 years as of yesterday to Don.

5. I got married in Las Vegas - in a church...not a casino!!

6. I have been in a movie! (at the request of BermudaOnion, My husband had a small role in "RoboCop, and I had a bit part cause I just happened to be there with him one day! It was so much fun!)

7. I have always and will always adore Donny Osmond!

8. I sing and play the drums and percussion instruments for my husband's band.

9. Annie Glenn, wife of astronaut John Glenn, used to play with me when I was a baby.

10. Given the choice, I will go with Pie over Cake every time!

So, I choose to receive this award, the eight gals above...plus...
