Nomination for Beautiful Blogger Award :)

One of the blogs that I follow, nominated my blog for one of her favorite "Beautiful Blogger Awards". Thank you Blue Ribbon Designs for the nomination :) http://blueribbondesigns.blogspot.com/
I follow your blog and love your work too :)

The rules to accept the award: Thank and link to the person who gave you the award. Paste the award on your blog. Write 10 things about yourself others might not know....and then pass the award on to 10 others.

Okay so here are 10 facts about me.

1.  My favorite fiction writer is Janet Evanovich.  I love the Stephanie Plum mysteries.
2.  I'd rather rescue an ugly, sweet dog from the animal shelter than own a beautiful pedigree.
3.  I'd like to write a fictional book someday and have my friends worry or wonder if they were going to be in it.  :)
4.  I can handle any emergency as long as I have my knitting with me.
5.  I can't hoola hoop or throw a frisbee but I'm a kick butt badmitton player.
6.  Daisies and geraniums are my favorite flowers.
7.  My favorite monument in Washington D.C. is the Lincoln Memorial and if nobody was looking, I'd run up there and have my picture taken sitting on Abe's lap :)
8.  I brake for turtles and then pick them up and carry them across the street.  Yes I've done this more than once.
9.  I'm a news junkie.  People who don't know what's going on in the world annoy me :)
10. Petula Clark's song "Downtown" puts me in a happy mood :)

Now in no particular order, here are my nominations for the Beautiful Blogger Award .
