First thing I must say....WAY TO GO SAINTS! 

Now, last Friday I had the great fortune to gather with other Bloggers in  Atlanta (A-T-L)!  We were invited to a lovely Valentine Tea by Joyce at Flour Power .  She had her condo decorated so beautifully!  I got to meet many new blogging friends and it was wonderful.  Sue took lots of photos and posted about our tea HERE on her Blog RUE MOFFETARD.  Please take a look and see the fun we had! There are photos of me, but really the camera put on about 50 lbs or was it all that food?

I won an first/second at the same crazy is that?  Both are called Kreativ Blogger!
This one was given to me by Diann at THE THRIFTY GROOVE .  Diann was one of the first blogs I started following and has been a great friend and mentor. 
The other was given to me by Carol over at OLD GLORY COTTAGE .   I always have a good time visiting Carol she has great junk, ah I mean collectibles!  

Thank you to both of you.  The rules are that I am to tell you 7 things about here goes

1. I am a Proud Marine Brat
2. I've lived in 9 states: Texas, California, North Carolina, Massachusetts, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Hawaii and Georgia...hmmm don't think I missed any.
3. The ocean restores my soul

4. I am addicted to Reality Shows

5.I have had five last names (not all by marriage...I could be a  reality show)

6. Sweet or Salty?  BOTH often at the same time

7. I saw the Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl in 1964

Whew...that was harder then I thought.

I am suppose to give this to other bloggers, but so many of you are award free and I completely understand.  I would hope these three ladies will accept this award.
Sandie at Chatty Crone , I enjoy her eclectic blog, it is interesting every time she posts!
 Anna at Chickens in the Basement, and yes she really does have chickens!   
Claudie at Bubblin' Over who is my Pink Girl, fun lovin and fellow Bachelor addict.

Hi Linda! You're very deserving, and I can always count on you for a nice comment, and being so supportive.But honey, I think you need to do a post all about #5, ok?!
Have a great day,

I was wondering if anyone would mention #5 to me! LOL...I promise to do a post about that one of these days. It's funny now but sometimes wasn't if ya know what I mean. Not all bad! And yes Sue I have menopause or SENIOR moments most every day...not bad all the time, but yep I gotta retrace and think now what was it I wanted/was doing/was wanting to say...etc!

Midcenturymadam said... just hit 75 followers! You saw the Beatles??? Lucky. My mom wouldn't let me go to the Cow Palace to see them. I still haven't forgiven her. She's 83 not, I guess it's time.

Midcenturymadam said...
