My Very First Award!

A HUGE thank you to Sweet Tea Diaries for being so sweet and giving me the Kreativ Blogger award! This is my first award and I am so excited that people are enjoying reading my little blog! I am just having a blast and meeting some fabulous people who are simply spectacular!!

Here are the award rules:

**List 7 things that you love and then pass the award on to 7 bloggers you love!**

**Be sure to tag them and let them know they have won!**

**You can copy the picture of the award and put it on your sideboard letting the whole world are KREATIV!**

Now...the 7 things I love:

-Fridays...they are my "during the week" day off of working out so I get to go straight home after work at 3 p.m. and sit on my butt watching Days of Our Lives and anything else I want until my hubby gets home!

-making lists...I makes lists weeks in advance for things I have to do...I make meal plans a week in advance...I love doing the grocery list...and I make to do lists for little jobs to do when I have time to spare. This isn't all...but I will spare you!

-eating dinner at the table...our dining room is quite small in the house we are renting so we haven't been able to buy a dining room table yet (we want a bigger one when we move) so all we have is this little two person table in our kitchen. We never really use it and always eat on the couch, but on those specials days where we actually sit at the table and talk rather than watch TV...I'm in heaven!

-a clean house...I'm not one to do a lot of small cleaning jobs daily...but when I start cleaning...I must clean the whole house and really clean it. An example...if I start to vacuum the living room, I must then vacuum every room in the house that has carpet. And then when I'm done I think to myself, "Why can't we just keep the house clean like this all the time?" I still haven't figured that one out.

-sending snail mail...I LOVE sending all of my family and friends cards for their birthdays. I think everyone should get mail on their birthdays and I love being that person who remembered. I transfer all of the birthdays to my daily calendar at home every year so I am sure not to miss one!

-Purdue! Both my degrees are from Purdue and I absolutely adore it there. If only I lived closer so I could be one of those alumni that go to all of the football games! Ah...I guess I will continue to worship from afar...

-and last but not hubby! What can I say?? I just LOVE HIM!

And now onto the best part...passing on the award!!
