Golly Gee, Thanks!

First off...
Lovely Kimberly @ Bugaboo, Mini, Mr, & Me gave me a lovely blog award:

Thanks Kimberly!

I get to share 7 fun facts and pass the award on to other lovely blogs.
So here goes...

I have been infatuated with the little Disney cartoon song "Johnny Fedora & Alice Blue Bonnet" since I was a toddler... and I STILL adore it. If you haven't seen it, please make your day and watch it right now! It's darling:

I love Halloween!
My parents didn't like it, so we stopped doing the trick-or-treat thing when I was 7. But I can't wait to have my own kiddos and make their costumes!

Martha Stewart

I worked @ Chick-fil-a in highschool.
Since I ate the food all the time, I came up with some weirdies that I still order to this day.
Like a chicken strip sandwich [I just order the strips, a bun, and some pickles], and the chicken salad sandwich dipped in ranch. Yummy, yum. :]

I can do a killer turkey impression.
They key is to shake your head violently.

Our last name is England...
I would have married the hubs for that alone.
It's pretty killer, but every time I have to give my last name to someone over the phone or something, they always say the same thing: "Like the country?"
It gets old... but totally worth it.

I LOVE cheesecake.
I'm not going to post a picture because I know it would be torture for me to search google pictures for cheesecake...

I'm the oldest of four kids...
I like them other 3 a lot :]

So now I get to pass the award on to some other lovelies:

Kara @ Mine for the Making
Gina @ Hiya Luv
Jacky @ The Sweetest Petunia

Then Mandy @ Mandy's Creative Corner gave me this little lovely:

Thanks so much Mandy!
For this one, you have to sum up your blogging philosophy, motivation, and experience using 5 words...
Here goes nothing:

Try, Inspire, Create, Encourage, Share

And I'm passing it on to these blogs with substance:

Allison @ A Glimpse Inside
Mellisa @ Oh, My Darling
Erin @ Crafts & Sutch
Roo @ Nice Girl Notes

Happy Friday!

My maiden name was Holmes. I cannot tell you how many times I got asked, oh, are you related to Sherlock? I finally just started answering yes. Because a lot of people didn't know he wasn't real......
