Woo hoo! I Got My First Award!

Well, this is my first award! I was given The Versatile Blogger award from My House of L. Thank you so much!


Ok, here we go with 7 things about me:

1. I grew up in a small town called Ojai in CA. It is where the show Brothers and Sisters is based!

2. I love my 2 boys so much, but they drive me so completely crazy at times!

3. My husband and I have been married for 7 1/2 yrs (he drives me completely crazy at times as well! :))

4. I REALLY don't want to go back to a "real" job when my boys are both in school.

5. One day I aspire of finishing my BA Degree, even if I don't really use it. The only job I can imagine enjoying is to become a teacher.

6. I adore babies and love borrowing them for short periods of time, however I can't even imagine ever wanting another one!

7. My name is Melanie and I am addicted to Facebook. There, I said it...



**There are some rules that go along with this. 




1. You have to thank the person who awarded you & Link them back in your post. Let the "giver" know you accept the award.


2. Tell everyone 7 random facts about yourself.

3. Pass the award on to 15 new found bloggers and link their blogs to your post.

4. Contact each blogger and let them know you've passed the award on to them.


Here are the bloggers that I'm passing the award to. Please check them out!

I also want to let you all know about a new craft swapping community that has just started. It's called Whoopdwhoop. If you are interested, click this link Whoopdwhoop to sign up and I will get a referral credit.
When you list your handmade items, you earn "whoops". Your "whoops" then can be traded for whatever items on the site that you choose. The sender is responsible for shipping charges. I'm currently waiting for 2 new items in the mail. I will post pics when I receive them!
