Award, Meme and I Received my Angel Wings!

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. I am catching up! I had a busy, busy weekend but a very good one! :)

My very good friend, Tracey, over at At Home on the Ridge sent me the Fabulous Blog award. Thank you, Tracey! Tracey has such a big heart and a great blog! She's like a friend I've known for years. :) Okay, this is really superficial of me but I've seen this award on other blogs and I really wanted it because I love the chic woman on it. Hehe! I finally got it! Yay!!! Tracey has a fab blog and she so deserves her. Swing by her place when you get a chance! Thanks for passing this on to me and the fun meme that goes along with it, Tracey! :)
So I am told to pass this along to blogs that I am addicted to and to tell you five things that I'm addicted to.. here it goes

1. Oh my gawd, MAGAZINES! You all know about my magazine addiction. I can't break the addiction either, it's terrible. I'm convinced there's something new and exciting in each magazine every month. So, what's a girl to do but buy as many as possible, right?

2. Okay, I'm going to copy Tracey on this one. I am now a blogging addict. Good example, when my internet at home went down last week I started going through withdrawals. Do they have a drug for this? Anti-anxiety-blogging drugs? If so, I may need it in circumstances like this.

3. I will admit this also, but this may come as no surprise to anyone. I am a Starbucks addict. I MUST, at least once a day, have a Starbucks. It's so easy, too, when there's a Starbucks at the bottom of my building that I work in.

4. This one is easy. One word. THE FOOD NETWORK. Wait, that's three words. So you also know school was never an addiction because I can't count. Even if I'm not watching TV it will be on in the background and on The Food Network. I used to just watch people make food but now I'm actually cooking (hmmm...after 10 years)? Okay, okay, Teresa I admit I can be a good cook, it's just getting me to cook that's the issue. ;)

5. Decorating. Again, Tracey, I'm right there with ya! I love decorating. It never seems to end does it? When you think you've done it all, there's always rearranging again and again and again! ;)

So I'm to pass this along to five other bloggers that I think are FAB. I am feeling generous today because I think everyone's blogs that I visit are fabulous!! Please, take a minute and grab this award and post this meme. I'd like to get to know each and every one of you and your addictions a little better. ;)
On another note, I received my angel wings today from Kelly at Southern Fried Cupcakes. Talk about talented girl! These wings are perfect! They are so soft and so beautiful. I'll have to tell you a funny story. When I first got them I hung them over the corner of my canopy bed in the guest bedroom not noticing what was already hanging on the corner. It was my "Believe" sign. I put the wings right over the sign and started walking away....then had to look twice. The wings hung right over that sign "Believe" as if to tell me something. I DO believe angels are amongst us, do you? This evening I moved them over to the front door (so my angel wings can protect my home). Aren't they gorgeous? I really do need to remember to take pictures during the day. It's a little dark...but still beautiful. :) Thank you so much, Kelly!! You are so talented and an angel yourself. If you get a chance, swing by her website!

Well, it's been a long weekend. Time for Monday but I won't allow the Monday blues to get me! Next weekend is a long weekend for me and I have special guests. I can't wait! The next few days I have more awards and memes to post. Stay tuned!

AHA! I'm glad Tracey got you to admit that you cook (and are probably too modest to tell us how fabulous you are at it). :) Congrats on your award!

Michelle~ I loved your meme- we have some things in common- MAGAZINES!!!!! It's a terrible addiction... Starbucks, Food Network (and I collect cookbooks and rarely use them- reading and watching make me like I have made fabulous meals)blogging addiction, and decorating. You so deserve your award and your angel wings are beautiful! Have a great day!
