My 1st Ever Blog Award! Yay Me!

I would like to start by saying thank you to my Mom & Dad, my fans, my producer....Oh wait, I don't have a producer!  Okay, daydream wonderful friend Amanda gave me this award and I really appreciate her thinking of me!  You can see all her cute crafty things by clicking here Crafts By Amanda

There are a couple rules you must follow upon receiving this award.
1. Send a thank you to the person who nominated you and include their link.
2. To accept this award, tell 7 random facts about yourself.
3. Pass the award on to at least 8 other awesome blog buddies.


1.  I did the hair and makeup on the set of The Hair Club for Men commercial that starts out "I've always looked up to my Dad, I just never wanted to look like him."  Yep, that was me...I also used to do pageant hair and makeup til some crazy lady wanted me to apply a full face (including mascara) on her 8 month old little girl.  I left and never did another pageant.  

2.  I LOVE black.  I always have and always will.  It always looks classy, makes you appear slimmer, and you never appear over or under-dressed.  The only drawback is that some of my four dogs go with me it or not.  I should own stock in lint rollers.  

3.  Up until the Christmas before last, I actually thought Cricut was pronounced "Cry-cut".  That's how little I knew about scrapbooking or papercrafting.  I had no interest whatsoever.  Odd huh?

4.  I absolutely love music and almost always have something playing at all times.  My tastes wildly varied from Conway Twitty and Hank III to Eddie Vedder and Sublime...there is no rhyme or reason <---like what I did there?  ;)...if I like it, I like it.  

5.  I made the move from working in Aveda salons to opening a pet spa three years ago.  I still have clients that ask me to do their hair even though I am standing amongst piles of dog hair as they pick up their pets.  I suppose that is a compliment.  LoL

6.  I always have at least one Blow Pop in my purse at all times.  It helps when I get a sweet tooth, and then the gum will distract me from whatever I want to eat that is even more least for a bit!  =D 

7.  I am allergic to dairy.  No big deal for a lot of people, but I would rather have died than give up my queso blanco when the Dr told me.  Now it's okay as long as I have a substitute when I get a craving for pizza or something that just isn't the same without cheese.             

Okay, enough rambling about me.  AHEM...wakey wakey folks! 
 This award is going to the 8 following people.

Congrats on your first award! I really enjoyed reading about you. Your responses were really fun and interesting. That is a shame about the mother wanting her tiny baby wearing mascara. At least you knew where your line was and had the guts to leave when it was crossed. So many people just don't know how to do that and end up doing things they really don't want to. I always pronounced Cricut right, but it's because I found out about it from the infomercial. Then I went searching online for a "Cricket" *LOL* Oh well, live and learn, right ;)
