Blogger Milestone #1 - My First Award!

{I am so sorry that this has taken me so long to get posted - but I had a wake up call the day I was supposed to post and I needed some time to deal. I won't go on and on about it because, frankly, it makes me sad. I found out that a very very close friend of mine is sick --- thank God it's not life threatening sick --- but it is life changing sick and I cannot imagine in my wildest nightmares how she feels. But I do know that no matter what, I want to be there for her - even if it's just to sit on the couch and watch terrible old Freddie Prince Jr. movies and cry with her.
I love you and I know that if anyone can move past something like this - it is you.}


Miss Lauren - don't hate me for taking so long - here it is finally!
Many thanks to Lauren over at Life.Love.Lauren for her sweet nomination for the Liebster Award. {And much love to my wonderful 28 followers - I couldn't do it without your wonderful 56 eyes on my pages everyday!}

4. What is your idea of a perfect date night?
Anything that involves food and a movie lol whether it be in my living room or at the drive-in or at the movie theater
