a little Blog Love

So sweet! Shauna gave me this award. I was totally surprised!! I had only been over to her blog a couple of times, so when she emailed me that she had awarded it to me, I wasn't sure who it was from--boy did I feel dumb when she helped me figure it out. She has three terrific boys, and it looks like they have a whole lot of family fun together. Makes me really look forward to the years ahead with my little guys. Thanks Shauna!!!! I'll be adding it to my sidebar with those other awards I have been blessed to receive.

I really like the manner in which Shauna bestowed this upon me--by emailing me. It really added to the surprise factor. So, I think I'll do the same thing. I'll be emailing a few of my favorite blog keepers today. :D

Yeah! Thanks for playing!

yo girl! i love when you get TAGGY TAGGED!!!!!

oh and i seee.....that you tagged Meeee!!! ♥

i'll get to work on that :)

by the way: the pie crust is a regular ol' crust.... not the graham cracker or oreo crust. i have never made it in either of those... so it might be GREAT, too!!!

but i use the Frozen ones...i thaw them & then bake them--don't forget to poke holes ALL in that crust first!!! Then i sprinkle it with a little SUGAR. :) Then i pour in the mixture & bake.
