Stylish Blogger Award

I would like to thank  Patty at Nana Poppins for honoring me with the Stylish  Blog Award!

Stylish Blogger Award

Rules for accepting this award are:
1. Thank & link back to the person who awarded you this.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pay it forward to 15 recently discovered great bloggers.

4. Contact those bloggers and tell them about their award. Blog Award!

Oh My, seven things about me:

1.  I was born, and raised, in Phoenix, Arizona and will always consider myself a Desert Rat.

2.  I have six adult children, four I gave birth to, five I raised and my birth daughter found me in May!
      She is the reason I started blogging!  I also added four more adult children when I married Hubby.
       Boy that is a confusing story!

3.  Speaking of Hubby, we met a local Country Dance Club where he swept me off my feet and taught me all the dance moves I know! We have been married nine years and together we have twenty-two Grandchildren.

4.  I am an RN in an Out Patient Surgery Center.

5.  I can be stubborn and when I set my mind to is all over until I achieve it, 
do it, buy it..whatever it!!!

6.  I am not as frugal as I should be but I have a hubby that is very frugal and he keeps me in check!

7.  I love to laugh, spend time with family, grow in my spiritual life, train for my marathon and enjoy a good glass of wine!

Oh Oh, that was more than 7.

Now it is my turn to Pay it Forward! It is so hard to pick just 15 but here goes.

         Ok, that is fifteen and to tell you the truth, I could have added many more. I have read so many wonderful blogs and it is a treat getting to know everyone through their writing!



  1. Shawn, thank you so much for your visit and sweet words. You are most inspiring , 4 1/2 marathons...reading how your daughter helped you go from 15 minutes to working towards a full marathon, warmed my heart. You have a great blog! Love the autumn header of you and your husband. Life takes many detours along this journey of life .

    Again thank you for your visit as now I have one more corner of BlogLand I can visit for some inspiration... xo HHL

  2. Mazal tov on the well-deserved award!

  3. Shawn! Thank you so much for awarding us the Stylish Blogger Award of which YOU are soooo deserving! We're happy to have met you (through the Worldwide Moment). We so appreciate how blogging has created so many new friendships with like-minded people (and their pets).

    We'll try our best to follow through with the rules of the award ... though number one on the list would be that we tend to fall far behind on award acknowledgements. (Shame on us!) We promise to do our best! Thank you again.

    Counting the days and hours until Sunday afternoon. And ready to snuggle in with the snow!
    Jake and Fergi and MomaSally

  4. I really enjoyed reading your list and thanks so much for sharing such a nice award with me. I will feature it next week. Thanks!!!

  5. Thank your for the award...I enjoyed reading your profile...great that you have run half marathons, and good luck on the full marathon!

  6. OMG! Thank you SO much for awarding me the "Stylish Blogger" Award. I don't know what to say, except for a gigantic THANK YOU!! I love your Thanksgiving theme for your blog. Very festive!

    Big hugs from me!!

  7. Shawn, I think I accidentally deleted my comment before I was finished. LOL It's early here and the coffee is still brewing. Yikes!

    Take II: Congrats on your award, and thank you for thinking of me. I look forward to featuring it (and you!) this week on the turtles blog. :-)

    22 grandchildren? Wow! And your 'whatever it!' sentiment made me LOL.

    I've been catching up on your running blog. Clearly, I'll have to read both to learn more about you and your beautiful family. Looking forward to it.

    *hugs* from Orlando (no snow yet here...ha ha!)
