For me?

How sweet! My friend Keni, over at Keni's Kranium, gave me this award. Thanks dearie!

So to earn this award I have to:

1) Link back to the person who gave you the award

2) Complete the form below

3) Award other blogs, and let them know in a comment/email that they have been awarded

4) Share seven random things about yourself

So here goes:

1) Name your favorite song:

Hmm...That's a tough one, it changes all the time. But my favorite instrumental song is probably "The Truth Will Set You Free" from the Mysterious Islands soundtrack.
2) Name your favorite dessert:

And I though the first one was tough! Well I love anything with mint. For my birthday last year I made a cake with layers of Giridelli brownie and mint ice cream, and then topped it with melted chocolate mints. Heavenly. (Yes, I do make my own birthday cake... so I can make sure I get to lick the bowl! I'm kinda selfish that way)

3) What makes you angry:

The absolute cluelessness of all the people out there who think that they can just do whatever they want to do, regardless of how it affects others. Course I do this too, so then I get really angry. Oh! and smacking, that one really gets me.;)
4) When you're upset:

I cry my eyes out. Why? Because I'm a sappy, emotional person and I just can't help myself. Oh but then I do feel sooo much better.

5) What's your favorite pet?

Well we have a cat, and I do really like cats, but... I kinda always thought a fish would be pretty cool. They just swim around in the bowl and you throw food to them right? Probably not that simple. I wouldn't know, I've never had one.
6) Black or white?

Well if we're talking about clothes I don't look good in either. But I would probably choose white. My dream is to go for a walk on the beach in a white dress, I always thought that looked so...beachy. *sigh*

7) Biggest fear?

No idea. Probably cars. I know that sounds lame; and don't get me wrong, I am very thankful for them. I just don't like driving them.
8) Everyday attitude?

Some dear friends of mine nick-named me 'Birdie', a name which makes everyone laugh and question me "why do they call you that?". But Mom got to thinking about it, and she said it apptly describes my 'everyday attitude'. In her words I "flitter around the house leaving a whirl of feathers behind me".
9) What is perfection?

Christ! Son of the living, perfect, God.

And maybe chocolate...kidding!

10) Guilty pleasure?

No question there: Sweet tea! I am from the South, you know. Movies would probably be next, I am a sucker for a cozy blanket and a good movie.

Now for seven random things about me:

1) I LOVE flowers! I love to wear them, pick them, take pictures of them, and just stand there looking at them. What an awesome Creator we have, to have made them all so different.

2) I love cuddling babies, they are so precious! And to think that there are people out there who knowingly murder them everyday (of course we don't call it that, we just call it abortion because that's the correct thing to say).

3) I really do make my own birthday meal and me that's the fun part!

4) I am 5'11". Not proud of it, but it is what it is... I just don't wear heels very often.

5) I love airplanes! I have had the opportunity to fly as the co-pilot a couple of times, which was pretty cool.

6) I love dancing! 'Tis one of my favorite things to do.

7) Okay, I'm running out of things here, didn't realize what a boring person I really am. I'm from Florida, and I'm proud of it! Actually my brother and I are the eighth generation (on my mom's side of the family) that was born in Florida. How cool is that!

Last but not least I get to tag someone (or someones). Ha, this could be kind of dangerous.

So I am going to tag Sarah at and Lauren at

Thanks Keni for thinking of me, I rather enjoyed this.

Until next time my friends.

Haawi ke aloha,

Mom and Dad on the road...

Mom and I are on the road...I had a meeting in Clearwater, and then we moved across the bay to Tampa. Today we visited an organic market farm that does a CSA. Here is the beautiful lady in the garden:
At the market, we picked up some fresh lettuce for a salad, and we had stopped earlier at the store and bought some charcoal and steaks to have a picnic cookout. Here is the lovely lady with the fabulous lunch that we enjoyed:

After lunch, we took a brief swing on the swingset in the park where we were having our quiet little picnic:

Then it was back to the hotel, where...if you can believe it...we went for a JANUARY!!!
