over the {top}

My friend Barb, whose blog, The Buzz, is "Over The Top!," thinks my poor neglected blog is "Over The Top!" too.  Not exactly sure what that means {though I'm pretty sure it's a good thing, because I'm in with some good company}, but isn't this just the sweetest looking award...kinda blends in with my blog colors too.   Whoever made this one up sure did a nice job. ;)  And it's such a fun award that I couldn't help but play along...hope you don't mind.  Thanks so much for thinking of me, Barb

Here's how it works: 

1.  You can only use ONE word!!
2.  Pass this along to five of your favorite bloggers.
3.  Alert them that you have given them this award.
4.  Have FUN!!! 

Well, knowing me and the way I tend to blab on and on, the ONE word part is going to prove quite a challenge for me but I'll give it a hero's effort anyway.  ;)  Hey!!  Maybe that's why Barb sent this my way...she wanted to see if I could really do this!! lol

1.  Where is your cell phone?  countertop
2.  Your hair?  shorter
3.  Your mother?  wise
4.  Your father?  quiet
5.  Your favorite food?  Italian
6.  Your dream last night?  gone
7.  Your favorite drink?  wine
8.  Your dream/goal?  heaven
9.  What room are you in?  nook
10.  Your hobby?  papercrafting
11.  Your fear?  sickness
12.  Where do you want to be in six years?  free
13.  Where were you last night?  home
14.  Something that you're not?  tall
15.  Muffins?  spice
16.  Wish list item?  stamps
17.  Where did you grow up?  Upland

33.  One place you go over and over again?  Whole Foods

35.  Favorite place to eat?  home
36.  Facebook?  sometimes

Okay, now it's my turn to pass it on to five of my favorite bloggers.  With ALL the blogs I frequent, choosing only five seems really unfair --not to mention some of those I'd choose are Barb and others she'd already chosen.  Okay, so here we go.  Besides being talented, these ladies each inspire me in their own way.  If you're not already familiar with them, I hope you'll take a moment to check out their blogs to see what I mean:

1.  Susan

2.  Stacy

3.  Sarah

4.  Carolyn

5.  June

Thanks so much for the visit, and I hope you'll stop by again soon.  I should have another card posted in the next day or so.  Until then, many blessings to you!

Christi...Thanks so much for awarding me this one! I enjoyed reading your answers and I have come to the conclusion that we need to go to Archivers together, with some wine, and make cards for our parents whom we miss so much and for whom we both last shed a tear for!!!
I do enjoy the comments you leave on my blog and treasure every nice thing you say about my work. Coming from someone as talented as you they mean a lot.
OHHH and what about 'THE GIFT'??? Did you ever finish it??
