Playing Catchup

In the past couple weeks, I was tagged for a couple of meme's and I'm just now getting to acknowledge them. The first one is from a long-time blogging friend and the other from a new friend. One of the reasons I've grown to love blogging, I just keep meeting the nicest people!

Xandra gave me this fun, fun award. She thinks my blog is FABulous, dahling. . .

I just love this button. If my blog is half as fabulous as this button, then I'm a happy camper. So, besides displaying the button in my sidebar, I'm supposed to list my five fabulous addictions. Hmmmm. Five things I'm addicted to that I think are fabulous, maybe? Here goes:

1. My DH a.k.a. Hubs. He's mighty fine, from always making sure there's a pot of coffee made for me first thing in the morning, to giving the best foot massages in the world. I'll stop right here, because I'm sure everyone is already jealous.

2. I'll admit it, I'm addicted to Starbucks. If you're a Starbucks fan, you'll understand, and if you're not, you think I'm nuts for spending $3.65 on a cup of coffee (well, yeah, I am nuts). But, I admit it. I love the stuff.

3. Books. Amazon.com used books is the most dangerous thing that's ever happened to my budget. I'm especially addicted to books by and about Anne Morrow Lindbergh. I just bought another one and it came in the mail yesterday.

4. Blogging. It may not seem like it, because I don't post everyday, but I love having a blog, reading other people's blogs, and finding new blogs. I also love reading biographies and published diaries and letters. Maybe I'm just very nosey about other people's lives?

5. Magazines. I'm in recovery on this one. I've actually cut back on the number of magazines that I subscribe to and purchase at the checkout stand.

This next meme is from Melissa at Sunbonnet Cottage. We met just before Christmas, and she has the coziest place. Stop over and tell her I sent you:) For this meme, I'm supposed to open a folder and choose the sixth picture in that folder.

Be right back, I'm off to download my picture. . . .



. . . this was taken a few years back in Grand L*ke, Colorado. We were out on the lake with my sister-in-law and niece. The kids were having a ball being towed on this. . .






It was a fun day!



And now, I want to pass this fabulous award on to all of my blogging buds who are reading this right now. That's you! I love reading all of your blogs. They're all so unique and different. And if you like to post photos, try the photo meme. It's fun to see where you end up:)

Great awards girl. Of course you deserve it! You are so FABulous...i love Starbucks and magazines as well.
Hope you are having a great week.

I'd say those are benign addictions; good for you!

Stacy at Exceedingly Mundane said...

I agree - your blog is fabulous, and so are you! I'm with you on most of those. I like Starbucks (and another local coffee place here), but I rarely splurge. I'm totally on the same wavelength with the books, blogging and magazines though. Totally :)

Have a wonderful day!

Well Karen--we could be twins once again! All you fave 5's are mine--except my husband fills in the #1 spot instead of your husband! I just received a book from Amazon today in the mail, and I agree that it is a deadly business--just too stinkin' easy to click that 1-2-3 easy check out button! And as far as magazines go, we are receiving more than we ever have at one time...cheap entertainment maybe?
I hope you have a wonderful end of the week...

Thanks for the comment on my Thankful post Karen! I must admit, as much as I am thankful for that job, my thermometer says it is 37 degrees this morning, with an expected high of 53, I am dreading walking into that building this morning! It is foggy out also, which makes every thing feel damp and colder than it is. But go I will! I keep telling myself at least we have Monday off as a holiday!!

I just noticed that Joe is still home? Is he not coming back up here to the land of weather extremes? :)

I love your fabulous award. Congratulations. I love Amazon, but try to get most of my books from the library.

I love your blog! How many magazines do you subscribe to? I need to be in recovery on that but am not....I don't buy at the newstand but can't seem to get control over the ones I get at home. I think I might have found some books I might buy soon, my library doesn't have them and I keep reading about them online!
Haven't had a starbucks in a while b/c the closet one is a/b 100 miles away...but I'll be there this weekend and hope maybe I can get a peppermint mocha!
