Stylish Blogger Award Info & My Picks...

 Thanks again, Jo @ Serendipitous Stitching
for my Stylish Blogger Award!  Here's my seven boring juicy tidbits about myself...

1.  I have always wanted twins, but they don't run in the family.  I was kidding with the doctor when I asked if there were two of them in there and was shocked when he said yes!  And to think Paul only wanted one child - we've now got three boys.
2.  I love baking, especially cheesecakes - pumpkin is my favorite.
3.  I never really cared for the beach until I went as a sitter for a family I used to babysit for growing up.  Those boys really got me to enjoy the water & sand and I love going now with my family every year.
4.  I love dragons (that's the Welsh in me) and I also love mermaids, especially the project I'm working on now for my sister-in-law & nieces.
5.  I'm afraid of heights.  But I did a zip line in Hawaii and loved it even though I was a total "tree hugger" that day!  I'm also supposed to go on a hot air balloon ride soon, yikes!
6.  I'm thinking of starting a new collection with thimbles - but only from places I've actually been to.  Wish I had thought of this years ago, I'd have plenty by now.
7.  I would love to take Paul & the boys back to all the places in Britain that I've been to when I was growing up.  Especially Devon, Cornwall & Wales!

So now it's time to pass the award to 15 other stylish bloggers, but I'm not sure if I can get that many!  I follow a lot of blogs and most have them have quite a few followers already, but there are some who don't have as many as the others and should!  In no particular order, here they are...
Kay's Random World   
A Joyus Place 
Patchwork Stitches   
My New Perspective 
My Musings  
Fireflies & Cats in the garden 
All I want..... is everything   
.............................. Fly on the Wall  - This is a special one written by my old youth pastor and his wife who are now in Penang - "So we tell others about Jesus, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all the wisdom God has given us. We want to present them to God, perfect in their relationship to Christ. That’s why I work and struggle so hard, depending on Jesus’ mighty power that works within me. (Colossians 1:28-29)" 
I do not expect them to pass on this award since they are so busy, but please pray for them - they even make it easy by having a prayer list!

Of course you can take a look at ALL the blogs I follow, there may be some there you haven't seen yet.

Thank you for the Thank You!
Enjoyed your 7 things, I wanted twins too, I've been obsessed by twins since I was little! Instead I have mini-me and mini-daddy 6 years apart!
