Please stop by these wonderful ladies’ blogs and show them some love.  And please, please don’t forget to check out Judy’s blog.   Thanks again Judy!  

7 things about Me:
1.  I was born and raised in Wisconsin!  I am a native Cheesehead!
  1. We have a very loving and beautiful family(Children, Granddaughter, Godchildren, Furbabies, Brothers, Sisters, Nieces, Nephews and parents).
  2. I am married to my best friend and knight in shining armor who offered to swim  across Lake Michigan when we were dating.  He is the wind beneath my wings.
  3. I am a shy person.   But once I get to know someone, you can't shut me up.  Just ask my husband and the kids.  I am a very very loyal friend and I love doing little random acts of kindness for the people I love.  I never really had a best friend as a kid.  When I was little, we moved a lot and I went to a lot of different schools.  I was always the new kid.  So, it was often hard to have a best friend because we were usually moving within a year or two.  But when I was in 4th grade, I did have a best friend, Joleene, who I kept in touch with for several years after we moved from the area.  I recently found her again on Facebook. I would love to find my junior high/high school best friend, Robin as she was the friend I was the closest to as we stopped moving after I got into junior high school.  But in my sophomore year of high school, Robin moved and I never heard from her again
  4. My parents have been divorced since I was 2, and last year, I finally found  3 half sisters and a half brother on facebook.  I can’t even begin to tell how it felt to find them and in addition, I got 5 nieces, 1 nephew and a great niece.  Still brings tears to my eyes.
  5. I have food allergies.  I am allergic to milk, nuts, peanuts, seafood, fish and raspberries.  I had them for over 16 years.  It was hard at first, but we have learned to deal with them.  I think sometimes other people have a harder time with understanding food allergies.   They don't understand just one small little bit or even touch or smell of the food could ultimately end my life.  
  6. My grandmother, my Mom and my aunt were/are my role models.  Since my mom was a single mom and worked, I spent alot time with my grandmother and aunt.  They both are very religious, loving, old fashioned, family first women.  They inspire me.  My mom suffered a stroke which left her paralyzed on one side, but she still continues to walk a little with the assistance of a walker.  My grandmother battled colon cancer,  unfortunately it ultimately took her life, but she battled it with grace and dignity.  I talk with my aunt every day, and we share a love of scrapbooking.
Well that is a little about me. So please stop by Judy's blog and the 7 ladies I have passed this award onto.

Aw, you are such a sweetheart. Thanks so much for passing this on to me. :0) My hubby is from Wisconsin too! Wow, food allergies can be extremely scary. I have only food sensitivities, not actual allergies, thank goodness. That must make it very hard to eat out. I found that even chicken often contains milk for some reason in fast food restaurants. I had to do a super strict elimination diet when I was going through some of my fibro stuff. They wanted to see if I had any issues and dairy was one I had to cut for a while. Very difficult to do. I feel for ya! Thanks again for thinking of me. You just made my day very special. I'll post as soon as I have a free moment. Please come on by my blog for the 13 days of Halloween hop, starting now!

I'm a little, okay a lot, slow on the uptake. I saw your comment right after my hop was over, went to your site, saw your button and planned to congratulate you but was having trouble with my computer since we were on the road. I thought the surprise was your winning. I cake back today again because I thought I missed something and I had. This is my first award so it makes it even grander since it is coming from you and it's your first award. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and will post about myself this coming Monday, the 23.

I didn't move anywhere while growing up but because I was an only child to older parents, I had trouble making friends and only had a handful until junior high and my closest friends came from high school. Facebook has really helped me reconnect with friends and to make some terrific new ones - like you.
