I'd like to thank Dr. Fit (no longer fatty!) for the SWEET award!

The Rules state I'm supposed to name 10 things I like, so here it goes . . .

  1. Volunteering -  doing for others helps me be less egocentric
  2. Reading - my favorite escape from nonfiction to Jodi Picoult, or currently the Guardians of Ga'Hoole series.
  3. Talking to my girlfriends on the phone - especially BFF!
  4. Nature - Some days I feel as if we live in the middle of a nature preserve. I love it!
  5. Swimming - especially in the pond and with my kid
  6. Crafts - scrapbooking, ceramics, knitting - you name it, I've tried it
  7. Travel - Seldom have the opportunity, but I love it
  8. Sustainable living - hubby works in green energy, we love Mother Earth News and all that stuff, even though we don't practice it as much as we should. We love our solar oven!
  9. Anything Australia - I've been hooked since I was a wee girl watching Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom.
  10. Last, but not least - hanging out with my kid
The second part of the award says I'm supposed to name 10 blogs and pass it on. Finding 10 that haven't already received it wiill be the big challenge!  Links are in my sidebar.  Here goes:

1. Auntie Mandy's Good Choices Blog
2. Donut Therapy
3. Less of a Man
4. The X-Banded Files
5. My walk from flab to fab
6. Crazy Fat Girl
7. Julie Lost and Found
8. Polar's Page
9. Happy Weight After

(I will return to complete my list)


  1. Oh. My. Word. Thank you. NOW I get it :-) What a sweetheart you are. I completely appreciate and receive from you the acknowledgement. What an amazing gift. Keep being your amazing self, sista! Becky of http://mywalkfromflabtofab.blogspot.com/

  2. Congrats on your award! You deserve it!

  3. You love me, you REALLY love me!

  4. I've done a lot of volunteering in my life too, starting at age 16...it does a heart good. So nice to get to know you better. PS - love that Mother Earth.

  5. Awwww, thank you, Lanie! This should be lots of fun to reply to! I love it that you are so crafty, and how cool that your husband works for a green energy company! I sometimes wish I didn't rent, so I could do my part a bit more. I am also a big reader.... lately on a mystery roll working my way through Sue Grafton's alphabet series!

  6. What a sweetie-thanks for the award and your input on my posts! And I love me some Australia, too.
