Happy to Receive the Stylish Blogger Award!

What a sweet gesture by Sweetpea at Broad Horizons to select me for the Stylish Blogger Award!  That made my day!  Now I get to pass it on to fifteen of my favorite bloggers and hopefully put a smile on their faces as well.

The rules are:

  • Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award
  • Share 7 things about yourself
  • Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers
  • Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award
So, 7 things about me . . .
  1. I am the mother of four amazing kids ages 20-11. 
  2. I get the honor and priveledge of homeschooling my two youngest - this means I also get to teach English to homeschooled high schoolers and speech at the JV level.
  3. Which leads to the fact that teaching is my passion.  In addition to #2, my work online as an adjunct univerity instructor and course developer keeps me busy and active in my love of English and teaching it to others.
  4. Books are my friends.  A thirst for knowledge has always kept me on the edge of my seat - since we can't always go out and experience everything we want to - books are a great alternative.
  5. Keeping in the English vein, I'm a grammar nazi!  My sister-in-law just gave me a shirt that reads, "I am the grammarian about whom your mother warned you."  ha!
  6. I've found a love for Chai tea... 
  7. I'm developing my bucket list along with my dearest friend.  We hope to get to work together to check a few items off each other's lists.
Now for those fifteen blogs:

Faith Family and Fun

My Little Life
