Blog Award

Welp...I was wrong about the snow!  Here I am blogging away, watching Saved by the Bell, and watching the snow fall away in my backyard.  Although there is something peaceful about snow falling and the beautiful white color spread across the yard....I still can't wait for warm weather.  On a fabulous note I have to thank Ashley Lauren at Texas Prep for awarding me with my first blog award of my new and improved blog. 

Here are the rules:
1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Award 15 recently discovered bloggers
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award
So seven things about me...
1.)  I was born and raised in Houston, Texas and my life would be incomplete without country music.  I am the biggest country music fan alive (at least I tell myself that) and I sure miss the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo that would come every Feb./March.
2.)  I am a dance-aholic!  I used to take dance classes when I was younger and even traveled to New York City to dance when I was in eighth grade.  Ever since dancing at New York Broadway Dance Center, I haven't been able to stop dancing!  I love going to dance classes at the gym, dancing at clubs, at weddings, and playing dance Wii games!
3.)I wish I could open up my own dog rescue. I am love watching Pit bulls and Parolees and Shorty's Dog Rescue on t.v.   There's just something about saving dogs lives that gets me every time. I guess that would explain why the hubs and I have three rescue dogs that have completely taken over our house.
4.)  I am obsessed with reality t.v!  I seriously watch everything that is reality: Bachelor, American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, Wipe Out, Minute to Win It, Jersey Shore, Biggest Loser, and the list continues.
5.)  My life goal is to visit all the Caribbean Islands that have people living on them.  I also have a goal to visit 500 out of the 1000 places in my Places to See Before You Die book.  As for the islands...I have been to Turks & Caicos, Bahamas, Antigua, Cayman Islands and this year I will add the Dominican and Grenada to the list!
6.) I met my husband when I was 16, in Junior English Class.  We planned a date to go four-wheeling and to this day, we have never gone!   We dated up until our freshman year in college and then broke up for a little bit!  We got back together our senior year and the rest is history...:)
7.) I become obsessed with things easily.  If I put my mind to one thing, I seriously become obsessed with it until it gets done.  Things I am obsessed with right now?  Going to the gym, putting hardwood floors down in my living room, and planning our trip to the Dominican.

So now the rules are to pass along the award to some of my favorite blogs!  This is the exciting part because it just might make another bloggers day!
1.)  Jackie @ LYMIB (Jackie is my sweet friend from college, sorority sister, and has grown to be one of my best friends)
2.) Shannon @ An Army Wife's Alaskan Adventure (Shannon is also a college friend, although we became better friends from blogging!  She is such a sweetheart!)
3.) Erin @ And Then There Were Three (Erin is a stay at home mom who used to teach first grade at my school!  We started teaching the same year together!)
4.) Angie @ Life Of a Single Gal I have grown to love reading her blog and all her adventures!
5.) Marie @ Pouty Pink Princess Her blog is the BEST! I love reading about her life and hearing her comments on my posts too!
6.)  Beth @ SweetBef's Blog Super sweet and fun to read! :)

Now..on to enjoy the snow day off from work!
