Meet my friend Leslie!

First My Ramblings
Hi there! Well, it's late and the hubby is sound asleep and I can't seem to fall asleep so I am doing a post and setting it up to post at 2pm on Thursday afternoon.  I find that posting late at night when I usually have time to blog is not the greatest time to reach everyone so trying out a different approach ;)

Blogging as some of you have heard me say is one incredible way to meet some incredible friends all around this HUGE world of ours!  I have tried my best to be a good blogger while not allowing it to consume my world as I want my hubby, my full time job and my other hobbies to not be affected by it.

It is so easy to allow this blogging life to not only take over your life but to also allow it to become an obsession to become one of the "popular" bloggers.  I want to be real and not about numbers! I used to blog every day at the beginning but that quickly became a chore and took away from my "real" life I suppose you could say.

And so that is why you don't see frequent posts from me, I need to be sure to be TRUE (my 2011 One Little Word) to myself and my family.  I love the friendships I have formed and appreciate those of you who have chosen to follow me.  I try my best to visit you when I can and drop you a line but I truly hope you understand when I can't ;)

Now onto the good stuff, MEET LESLIE
OK, so anywhooooo.  One of my recent "NEW" blogging friends is Leslie and she awarded me this fabulous award a few weeks ago.  Life happened and so I am just getting to it :(  I came across Leslie through someone else's blog and quickly went off to meet her via her blog.  She is one very TALENTED woman and you should see her Craft Studio HERE!! It's to die for as are her cards that she creates and sells she has a link on her blog to her Facebook page for Posh Paper Sweets.

I really hope you take a few minutes to go and meet her, I promise she won't dissapoint! Oh, and she has the cutest kiddos and lives not too far from me so I am excited to say that I plan on driving to meet her in the next month or so!

Leslie's Blog can be found HERE and on my blog roll to the right.

Now on to the award..........
I am so honored that she chose to pass this award on to me. Thank you so much Leslie
So I have to share 8 things about myself that you probably do not know, so here it goes...

1. I am the oldest of 4 kids
2. I am the "bossy" Aunt to my 8 nieces and nephews
3. I was originally born in Monterrey, Mexico
4. I don't have any hint of an accent, well besides a bit of a Texan one now and then ;)
5. I don't know how to tread water
6. I am afraid of rollercoasters (although my hubby has gotten me on a couple to my dismay)
7. It drives me crazy when folks spell to when they really mean too (I have been known to do it too though)
8. I have been employed by my company for going on 25yrs!

If you wish to award this to someone you know feel free to right click and save on the award to save it and then pass it on :)

Awe, ;0) *blushing* I totally agree with your philosophy about being a blogger. It can almost be like a job. Lol this blog is strictly for my cards and my family blog I keep separate. But yes! I hear you about being true and about itnotbeing about the numbers. Amen sister! I'm looking forward to meeting you and maybe hitting up a few scrap expos. Whooohooo!
Blessing to you girlfriend,
Leslie
