Stylish Blog Award

I’ve received 2 (two!) Stylish Blogger Awards (thanks so much Vonda @ Newlyweds & The Old House and Katy @ Mom and Her Drill!!)


That means it’s time to share some stuff about myself and pass on the award to a “new crop” of stylish blogs.


I’m a little surprised to receive a “stylish” award since I’m usually NOT -stylish that is (yes my sister, who is stylish, is nodding and laughing right now).


  1. I often have paint in my hair and sawdust on my clothes when I pick my son up from preschool (they never say a thing).  Not stylish!
  2. I check out mystery novels and woodworking books from the library.
  3. I love working with all molding except crown against a ceiling (crown as a shelf is awesome though).
  4. I’m a “low-tide food” lover… oysters, shellfish, mackerel, sardines, herring (not lutefisk, though, blech!)…
  5. In college, I asked a cute guy to show me how to change my oil.  Yeah I already knew how, but look how well that turned out – we’ve been married 7.5 years!
  6. I used to be crazy, crawling on the ground, afraid terrified of heights.  Now I’m just weak-kneed, hate standing on a chair, don’t make me look, afraid of heights.
  7. Our last little guy was a surprise.  We love him and wanted him as soon as we found out – but wow – surprise!
  8. I’m not “always” happy, but I never ever forget how blessed I am.


Here is another post with 10 other “surprising things about me”.

  2. Congratulations!!! ;D Also, I hear that there is a tool lending library in Berkeley, so you could conceivably get all of your major addictions fed in various places throughout the county! LOL!
