I couldn't have better Friends!

I was given this award by my good friend Bing...Her blog ~ Of Living, Loving ... and Coping is a daily read for me. She is not only a great friend, but an inspiration, not only to me, but to her many readers!

This has got to be one of the nicest awards out there! At least I think so! I just love hearts this is special to me!!!
I love the award, and what it represents too!!
This is what the "Let's Be Friends" Award represents:

These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement (? big word, lol). Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

There are so many friends I would love to give this award to, and I will start with these:

Judy of More Than Sew So
Swapna of Crafts and Cooking
Duni of Lovely Purses
Kristin of My Art and the Mom in Me
Sandee of Comedy Plus
Laura of Sassy N' Sappy
Jenn of My Beautiful Creations
Abby of Simply Charming in SC

There are eight friends who have been there for me and behind me, and I treasure them dearly!!! I appreciate all the support and inspiration you give me with your comments!! I am so proud to have met you all~

If you head over to my other blog, Soy Wax Candles Blog, I have another 8 friends that I have awarded this to!! :)

Thanks so much, Till Next Time,
Take Care,

Middle Aged Woman ~ Hilarious!!

This video is courtesy of my Best Friend Dottie, she sure knows how to make me laugh!!

Now, a warning.... DO NOT VIEW OR LISTEN with youngsters around!!!!

I mean it!!

It's funny as anything, but there are some Naughty words in it.....but they are all in fun, and made me laugh!! If you are easily offended, then this video is not for you.

And I have to admit, I almost spewed my tea out of my nose at one part!!!! LOL
So, not drink while listening and watching......

Okay, so the warnings are done, sit back relax, and get ready to laugh!!!

I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!! If not, you are either too young, or you don't have a sick mind like me!!! LOL

Till Next Time,
Take Care,

**Irreplaceable - Beyonce

Oh Joy! I was tagged by Pink Lady Bing over at Sheepish Thoughts to do this music meme! Not only here, but on my other blog Soy Wax Candles Blog too!

Now, the reason I say...Oh Joy, is because, I have a very varied selection of music that I listen to, and Lord only knows what's going to pop up on shuffle....LOL!

But, I am laughing over here, just imagining what my answers will be?!?!?
Here goes.......

Kats Red IpodThe Rules for the MEME are:

1. Put your Music Player on shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
4. Tag your friends

**She's in Love with the Boy - Trisha Yearwood (okay, it's starting already, lol)

**Practice What You Preach - Barry White (Hmmm, good answer, if you know the song!)

**I'll Stand By You - The Pretenders (my usual motto....this is getting scary!)

**Hollaback Girl - Gwen Stefani (OH COME ON!!! lmao!)

**Bringin' on the Heartbreak - Def Leppard (I think this is rigged!)

**I Can Love You Like That - John Michael Montgomery (Kinda a mushy song for friends?)

**Who Says You Can't Go Home? - Bon Jovi (Right on the money, now I know it is rigged!!! lol)

**Money Maker - Ludacris with Pharrell (LOL! AS IF??)

WHAT IS 2 + 2?
**Live Like You Were Dying - Tim McGraw (???)

**It's Raining Men - The Weather Girls (how appropriate!!)

**You Seen Me Cryin' - Aerosmith (yup, story of my life.....sad, but true...)

**Who Will Save Your Soul - Jewel (At least Hollaback Girl didn't show up here!)

**Cry Me A River - Justin Timberlake (that sounds kinda sarcastic huh?)

**Born To Be My Baby - Bon Jovi (Yeah! A nice upbeat song!)

**That's All - Ace Young (OMG!! What is going on here???????)

**Walk This Way - Aerosmith (Maybe when I was younger.... )

**Never Felt This Way - Alicia Keys (You know what they say about 3 strikes?)

**Glad - Jennifer Lopez (not sure about this one?)

**Smack That- Akon with Eminem (another omg!)

**No One - Alicia Keyes (I love my friends!)

**Irreplaceable - Beyonce (Very fitting!)

OK, there you have it..... You can stop laughing now!! No, Really, stop already!! LOL!

I want you to take a break from your regular blogs and have as much fun with this as I did, so I'm tagging:

Kristin ~ My Art And The Mom In Me
Jackie ~ Simply Shinade
Jenn ~ My Beautiful Creations
Janet ~ Dolly's Daily Diary
Abby ~ Simply Charming in SC
Babs ~ beetle's Memories 'N' Ramblings

Naturally, you don't have to play along if you don't want to....but after my little fiasco here, I would LOVE to see your answers!!! LOL

Till Next Time,
Take Care,

I won a Contest! WOW

Do you remember that great contest I blogged about , that was being held over on Mira's blog, Random Thoughts?
Well, I was one of the lucky winners!!

WinnerThe contest was called "A JOINT BLOG ANNIVERSARY GIVE-AWAY CONTEST", and was hosted by some of the best bloggers out there!! The prizes were amazing, and there were 12 winners!! You can view the winners Here.

Winners were selected by, and I was #9 on the list!! Woooo Hoooo! I am so excited.....
Here is what I won........

1000 EC + 1 month 125x125 ad space from Lovely Pink
1000 - EC credits c/o Small Side Bits
1000 - EC credits c/o In His Steps
1000 - EC credits c/o Moments of My Life
1000 - EC credits c/o My Crossroads
1 month text link ad Filipino Online Community

This is like the best news ever.....seeing as though my computer is dying, and I need to replace the whole operating system!! I am going to lose everything, so I am spending the weekend trying to back-up and salvage what I can!!

I have my poor computer back for the weekend, and will try to capture everything, although I know I won't be able to. I have so many things on here, and programs that I no longer have the discs for, or don't remember where they are....
And then once they re-install the operating system Windows XP (I don't want Vista) next week, I have to install everything all over again, and hope to get it back to somewhere near where it was!!

Anyone have any great ideas for backing up, and saving that is easy and not so time consuming as dragging and dropping every damn single file??? Any info would be helpful at this point....
But I only have the weekend to do it. Ideas.....? Suggestions....?

Thanks so much,
Till next time,

Okay, so it has been acting up for a few weeks now...but now it is really broken!!!
broken_computer_explodingMy poor computer is at the shop, and hopefully, it will be done today or tomorrow...but there are "no guarantees"!!

Arghhhh, I hate that I won't have my computer.....what the heck am I going to do??

I have tons of things that I have to get done, and now with the computer being sick, I don't know when I am going to get all my stuff done??

I'm writing this from work, so it has to be short and sweet!

Hopefully I will be back soon.... :)

Life is Grand...and So Are Friends!!

I also received this beautiful and very meaningful award from Abby at Simply Charming in SC~!!!

She is soooo very good to me!! I am smiling from ear to ear!!!
You hear that Abby??

I think Abby is so thoughtful and kind to present this award to me! Her blog is filled with the most wonderful jewelry and items, and stories, that I never tire of going over there. It's a daily read for me!!

This award comes with some fun rules: List 5 reasons why you think life is "grand" and pass along the happiness to five fellow bloggers!!!!!
I think my life is grand because:

  1. I am blessed to have found the BEST friends while blogging!! Who knew that you could actually connect and make friends here? Not me....I thought I was just going to write on my blog for therapudic and personal reasons, and hope that maybe, someone might read it....
2. My daughter and grandson live right across the street and not only is that's awesome!!!! I can see them regularly, or when I want. And I know that may not sound like a good deal to some, but I know lot's of Grandma's who don't get to see their grandchildren often, maybe once or twice a year because of for me, this is grand!

3. I also think my life is grand because I create, and I LOVE to create!! I hope I never lose that urge or talent!

4. I also think that one of the best things ever is "breakfast foods"....and I know you probably think this is weird....but I love breakfast!! I can eat breakfast any time of the day, and sometimes do. Steve and I go out for dinner and if he asks where I want to go, I usually say "I-Hop" (International House of Pancakes) because they serve breakfast all the time!! He can have dinner and I can have my pancakes, eggs and Bacon...yum! I just love Bacon!! Grand = YES~!

5. And lastly, my life is grand because of who I've become....and that might not make sense to you, but it certainly does to me!! I have been through so much in my life, mostly bad, to get to this point....and I have to say that I am pretty impressed with myself!! I am a lot stronger than I EVER would have given myself credit for, and to get to this point and still have a great outlook?? Amazing!! That's all I'm gonna say.

Now, to bestow this GRAND AWARD onto 5 other bloggers:
I have to admit....when I think of grand, immediately these blogs come into my mind!

1. Janet of Dolly's Daily Diary ~ She has become more of a friend than she could ever know, has helped me tremendously, and still continues to inspire me daily, not only with her blog, but with her friendship!! Thank you!

2. Bing of Of Living and Loving....and Coping ~ She is also a great friend, and has helped me, I think we help each other in return....and has such a positive outlook, she makes me smile. Her blog is worth the read.

3. Sandee of Comedy Plus ~ She is one of the reasons I smile alot, her blog is THAT funny! And she always lifts my spirits with her comments and encouragement!

4. Jenn of My Kids Are My World ~ Another great friend, who always makes me laugh and gives me good advice. I don't know what I would have done without her when reading Twilight!! LOL

5. Babs of beetle's Memories 'N' Ramblings ~ A must read blog for anyone who needs a pick-me-up...or just wants to smile!! She never fails to deliver and I am so happy I get to read her blog!

So there you have it!! Now, I think so many other blogs are "Grand" and want to award this to lots more, but the rules say 5, so I'm stopping here....and I also want to say that I know that Kristin and Duni already received this award, so that is why they are not on my list...but know that I thought of you too!!

I hope you all feel Grand today!!!
Till next time,
Take Care,

Blogger vs. Wordpress

Sorry, but for me, Blogger wins, Hands Down!

I am having such trouble over at my other site "The Angels Weekly"

Angels is on Wordpress, and it seems like it is nothing but problems all the time!!

When I posted on Monday night, my right sidebar totally moved to the middle column, and won't go back?? Now, I didn't touch anything in the css, or the layout, all I did was publish the articles?

I have a nice man from Wordpress support trying to help me, and after reading the help boards and the help forums at, it seems like I am not the only one with this problem!! There are soooo many posts there about the same exact thing!!!

Many people just posted an article on their blog, and now everything is screwed up!! The boards are loaded with complaints!! We had major problems when wordpress updated to 2.7, the site blew up and we lost Everything!! Had to start from is just sooo frustrating!!

Now, I started blogging for FUN.... not to become some tech guru, or learn how to program for NASA.....and wordpress is really getting on my last nerve!! I love coming here to Blogger and not having those worries!! Blogger makes it easy to do what I want to do, and what I love to do!!

Now I know some will say that Blogger doesn't have all the bells and whistles that wordpress does.....but you know what??? I will be happy to keep blogging here without all the worries and the headaches, than to go to wordpress any day!!

Any opinions out there??

Till next time,

Abby Tagged me!!

My good friend Abby over at Simply Charming in SC decided to tag me for the 7 random facts...
And she was all kinds of excited, because this was her first tag!!
Awwww Abby, had I known, I would've tagged you a while ago!!
Well, beware now, cuz I know you secretly (well not so much now, I just let the cat out of the bag) love doing questionaires and surveys and such!

(Don't you just love her new button?)

Lol, now I've played this one before...
but I am such a good sport, that I will play again!!

Okay, here goes:
  1. I still actually have all my own teeth (except for the darn wisdom ones, which could explain a few things!)
  2. I love the color "Red" but not in all things, and not at all times. But usually that is my favorite color. I'm not sure if I look good in it, but what the heck, I like it, so I wear it!!
  3. I actually have small feet, size 6, and I guess that is an oddity according to how many comments I get when people see my feet, and ask me my size?? But I don't think they're "that" small ?? What the heck???
  4. Which leads me into #4 and that is that I have a phobia about feet....not just mine but anyone's!! I don't like feet!! Ummm something about them...and you're gonna laugh, but I hate, hate, hate my feet being touched....ewwww ! So I have never had a pedicure by anyone other than myself (and that doesn't really's just throw some polish on the nails quick and be done with it)!!! I know....laugh's ok.
  5. I am petrified....literally shaking if it snows, and I have to drive in it!! But I have never been in an accident, so there really isn't any cause for my fears, just crazy, I guess.....but I mean as soon as the flakes start coming down, I feel like I have to leave work, to get home safe!
  6. I'll bring up an old one, just in case you don't know this about me.....I am allergic to garlic, and the slightest bit on my food, and I'm throwing up and in the bathroom for a good 12 hours at least!! Not so good, seeing as though I'm 1/2 Italian....and that practically "everybody" puts garlic, or garlic powder or garlic salt in almost everything now-a-days!! Kinda makes it tough to go out to eat....and I love to eat!!!
  7. And finally, my house is so full of stuff, that I really don't think I could fit much else in here!! I have collected and inherited and saved loads of things, and I am a packrat, so I don't get rid of anything!!!! Truly there isn't much open space in my house....I am a clutter bug!!! But I love to work in the chaos, sometimes my best ideas and work come out of my mess!! So, I need it!!
So, there you have another 7 random things about me!!!
I hope you were enlightened and amused...... :)

I'm not going to tag anyone special....if you want to play are more than welcome to. Have fun!!!
Till Next Time,
Take Care,
