Wait - did you mean ME?

How sweet is this??

Low Country Living sent this my way yesterday - first one ever - and when i see who else she awarded it to - i am in awesome company!  Thank you LCL!!!  Ladies - go visit her and take a look at her awesome cottage renovation - i can't believe she's moving but i can believe she sold it fast - it's gorgeous!

Ok - i'm supposed to share 7 things about me...which, i'm sorry in advance, will bore you to tears - but here goes...

  1. I have to live near water otherwise i feel like i kind of can't breathe.  I can see the lake from my driveway and while i don't have to be able to see the water from my house - i have to be able to get to it quickly.  I don't know why that is, but i do know you will never see me living my parents' life in the mountains.  I need H2O and sun. LOTS OF SUN.
  2. I was a flight attendant and it's the only job I've ever gotten in trouble to the point i was removed for 3 days without pay.  It's also the only job I've ever walked off - like quit - before the shift was done.  I think it's fair to say that was not the job for me.  
  3. I totally forgot my first date with Vance.  He drove over 2 hrs (he lived on the west coast) and got a hotel so that he wouldn't have to drive back and i totally forgot we even had a date - didn't have a sitter for the boys - and to just make it worse - when he called to say he was on his way - i actually said "Who is this again?".  Yea, not my finest moment.  
  4. I plan on the sky falling.  I am the worst case chick - every time something good happens i look for the bad to come out of it.   It makes Vance nuts.
  5. I actually like to clean the bathroom. 
  6. On the other hand - I HATE doing laundry.
  7. I'm totally in love with my life right now. Truly, madly, deeply in love with where I am at this point in my life. 
Ok - on to those I'm passing this along to - please visit these chicks for some great inspiration - you will find some wonderful, heartfelt posts as well as decor inspiration.  Love these blogs.
