I'm Smiling . . .

I'm Smiling


A very sweet blog friend passed this award on to me!

My smile is so big I'm surprised I have a face left LOL!

Thanks Sondra!

 If you haven't had the opportunity to stop by her blog, here's your chance.

Stop by and introduce yourself!
You'll quickly become friends!

To pass the award along, I've pick eight friends that inspire me on a daily basis.

I'm in love with Lisa's home.   It beautiful!  Go check it out!

Heather has a corner hutch I can't stop obsessing about.  It's always arranged so beautifully.
Plus her love of ironstone has me liking her even more!

I'll never tire of looking at Kimberly's home.  Her style is amazing.

Jodi has some serious sewing skills.  Her creations are always lovely.

I'm new to Pam's blog and so happy I found her.
Pam and I could be twins we enjoy so much of the same things.

Very Merry Vintage Style Blog Button

If you like all things vintage this is the place to be!

If pale and beautiful interiors make your heart flutter, stop on by.
This is one seriously talented lady with a camera.  Her photos are amazing.

Jen is a very fun lady who is right in the middle of a serious kitchen remodel.  Completing most of the work herself, it's defiantly worth stopping by to say hi. 
(I'm secretly hoping she finishes her kitchen soon.  Then she can come do mine!  LOL)

Now to share eight things about myself you may not know . . .

#1:  I have a serious sweet tooth.
Chocolate, jellybeans, Carmel, cake, cookies you name it I'll most likely be craving it.  This time of the year puts my in some SERIOUS trouble.

#2:  I enjoy going to the gym.
Most days of the week you'll find me at the gym. 
For the last six months I've been participating in a program at Life Time Fitness called My Coach.  Basically, I meet with a personal trainer once a month. He gives me a new weight lifting and cardio plan which I can work on at my own pace. 
I love it!  It really keeps me motivated.  And I'm loving the results.  The weight loss is slow going but I'm feeling great and muscle definition is emerging.

#3:  I'm extremely shy.
Meeting new people face to face is a terrifying event.
I get all panicky . . .
My  mind freezes up. . .
 I don't know what to say . . .
I feel like an idiot . . .
and start acting all giddy. . .


#4:  Camping is one of my favorite things to do with the family.
I love sitting by the campfire, chatting and relaxing.
Plus the kids love it so much.  I know I did as a kid.

#5:  Gardening is a passion.
Every year my garden grows a little bigger.  Hubby in convinced in a few years the yard will be completely filled in with flowers!  He might be right.  A girl can hope right!

#6:  I'm mathematically challenged.
I've never been quite sure why, I guess my brain just doesn't work that way.

#7:  I'm a homebody.
Hence the name of my blog.  I enjoy happily fluttering around the house.  Enjoying time with my kids and hubby no matter what we happen to be doing. 
A couple day away from home and I'm ready to go home.

#8:  I have a serious App addiction.
My itouch and I are tight!
Farm Frenzy, Dinner Dash, StandsO'Fun,
they are all good.  Not a day goes by that I don't "play" a little.

There you have it, eight things you might not have know about me.

thanks again to Sondra for thinking of me!  Your really are too sweet!

until tomorrow,
