Award Time!

Recently, I have received this great award from the following FABULOUS bloggers:  Rinz, Jo, Snarky P, and Heather.  Thanks so much to each of you! 

1. Thank the person who gave you the award
2.  List 7 things about yourself
3.  Name the blogs you would like to award

7 Things About Me:  

1.  My husband and I met at Bloomingdale's (of all places!) 12 years ago.  It was my first day on the job working as a counter manager in cosmetics and I was looking for a bathroom.  He was working in luggage at the time and said "Hi, are you lost?" and the rest is history.

2.   I am addicted to Pawn... "Pawn Stars" that is... on The History Channel!!  Great Show!

3.  I like my oatmeal LUMPY...no really, I do!

4.  When I was younger, I danced on a show called "Dance Party USA".  I had an absolute blast!  Kelly Ripa was on the show too at the time (she was 16 and adorable with very long and curly hair).

5.  I have loved Jon Bon Jovi since I am in 5th grade!  I still think of what I would say to him if, um, rather, when I meet him. 

6.  While this is in my profile info, I thought I would share it again since this is one of the most fun, challenging, and rewarding things I have ever done: I hosted and produced a Game Show at my former job.  Exhilarating! 

7I have a teensy, weensy, beensy shoe obsession!

I now pass this on to the following amazingly beautiful and talented bloggers:
