Karen from Do Better
I love to read this blog for several reasons. Whether it is exercising, eating better or just thinking green, Karen inspires me to do better. She writes about her friends and family and makes me feel at home when I come to visit her.

Geggie from So...What else, What else, What else?
I have followed Geggie for awhile and she has a great sense of humor. She has recipes, tips, and a wonderful sense of adventure. She will also tell you how it is! A guaranteed smile!

Michele from A Big Cup of Tea
Michele has a crock pot breakfast that I used when I was on vacation. That meal alone is a good enough reason for an award but michele has some fun crafty ideas as well. She makes everything look so easy and I love to stop by and visit.

Dawn from A Home in the Country
Dawn is a new blogger and also a Daring Baker. It makes me smile to watch her garden grow. I didn't get to do a garden so I'll just watch Dawns with a smile. Welcome to the blogging world, Dawn!

Now for the random facts.

April tagged me for 6 random fact about me.
I know this is stuff your just dying to know. :)

Here are the rules:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on the blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post.
5. Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

Here goes...

1. I grew up in a music store. Same building, roof and walls. Just walk through some swinging doors and you would walk out of my kitchen and into the music store.

2. I volunteer for the YMCA. I have been there for 11 years this October.

3. We had a fire and the music store burned down in 1993. We rebuild it and are still there today.

4. I don't have a spleen. It burst after I was hit in a head-on crash with a drunk driver. Don't drink and drive.

5. I have a wienie dog named Mario. I use to have a cat named Mario, too.

6. I don't like to talk on the phone.

Now I get to tag some people and I tag all of you! If your reading this, considered yourself tagged. What? Not everyone has a blog? Then you can leave your random facts in the comments. See how accommodating I am. Another little random fact I bet you were dying to know!
