Award and Random Things

This award came from My House-My Life. She is lucky enough to live in Lancaster, PA. I would love to go there! Thank you so much! I will pass this on to Leslie from Feathers In My Nest. She has such a great sense of style! I love her house and blog.

Tanya at Ladybug and Honeybear gave me this award. She has such a cute blog and just celebrated a birthday recently! Thanks Tanya! I think Leah at Just Like Camping deserves this award. Sometimes she makes me think too hard but it is always fun to stop at her blog.

Darlene, Brandi, and Cindy wanted to know six random things about me.

1. Everyone thinks it is weird that I hate potatoes of any kind.
2. I also, hate strawberries.
3. I am the middle child and only girl.
4. I love organizing and cleaning out.

*I asked Cody to tell me something for the last two:

5. I was the president of the student chapter of American Society of Interior Design (ASID) in college. (or in his words, "you were the president of Interior Design Nation.") Ha!
6. " You like your hamburger with cheese and ketchup only and you like birds."

Very deserving for sure! Wow, rarely do you find someone who doesn't like potatoes and strawberries. Have a great day! Jackie

Darlene said...

You definitely deserve your awards...we all love your blog. I can't believe you don't like potatoes, though I'm sure my clothing size would be smaller if I didn't like them....lol

Katie said...

WHAT?!?!?!?! YOu hate potatoes???? You have to be joking! Seriously...I make mashed potatoes with almost every single meal at my house...except for, you know, pizza and stuff. That's hilarious! So does this mean you don't like French Fries either? I was just asking a group of people the other day if they knew anyone who didn't like French Fries. None of us could think of a single person. Is it you, Shannon? Are you the one who doesn't like French Fries? Tell me, is it lonely in your potato-free world? ;o) I promise, if you ever visit me, I will concoct non-potato side dishes, 'cause I like ya so much! hehe

INTERIOR DESIGN NATION? hahahahahhaha! That sounds like a show or Janet Jackson album! I love that!

Beautiful awards that are much deserved! And yes it is weird that you don't like potatoes...I wish I didn't...I'd probably weigh about 300 pounds less than I do!

Jennifer said...

Melissa Wertz said...

Congratulations! Now I cannot believe that you do not like potatoes! And they are good for you. As long as they are cooked healthy...

You are the award queen. Guess what post I am finally getting around to...yep, it's coming...next. Better late than never.
And I guess every single one of us can't get over the fact that you don't like potatoes. In our family, it's got its own food group. My fav. food is french fries, and mashed potatoes.

Blanca said...

Wendy said...

Rae said...

Such great awards...congratulations!! It took me years to finally like strawberries and I'm totally with ya on only putting cheese and ketchup on burgers!!

Angela said...

You and my husband with your cheese and ketchup only! Do you know how many times that we've held up drive thru lines checking to make sure that his burgers are done correctly? And I'm with Katie, I could have some form of potatoes with every meal! Mashed, scallopped, fried, any of them are good! Fun list!

Leigh said...

It is weird that you dont like potatoes. That's my comfort food. But people think its weird that I dont like meat....to each his own....

Congrats on the awards! I can't believe you don't like strawberries, but I don't like icecream and people freak out about that one-so that is ok. That is definitely a rare one! How do you survive? haha

Suzanne said...

Hey Shannon!
Thanks for the info! Why don't you work in interior design now? You will have to post...I am curious...or maybe nosy!!
Oh, since I know how much you like fall decor Kirklands is having a fall sale starting this weekend. I plan on hitting that along with Hobby Lobby's fall sale. Just thought you might want to know. Although I don't think Cody will be too happy I passed that message along to you!

Happy Fall!
Suzanne

And you don't like eggs and berries! :)
I can't believe you don't like potatoes-I live on them (because I can't have gluten)
I love learning things about the people I blog with!
Thanks for sharing.

Does that mean you hate french fries? I wish I didn't like potatoes - they seem to go straight to the booty!

Our Complete Family said...

A big ole' congrats on your recent awards! Well done girly! Yes...I'm not the only plain jane when it comes to burgers! Yahoo! You, my hubby and son don't like strawberries. I was bound and determined to make sure Miss Priss liked them so we tried them often and guess what?!? So far she is on my team! We're a mess having teams over strawberries in our house, right?!? Oh my! Happy day hun~ Les

AJ said...

Congrats on your awards:) Please tell me you at least like french fries?!?!

Nicole said...

Congratulations on your awards. You are definitely deserving. Your so on top of this blogging stuff, I don't know how you do it. I'm loving all of your fall decor, and if I makes you feel any better I don't like mashed potatoes or fat french fries or potatoes in soup.

Leslie said...

Well bless your heart Shannon! Thank you so much for passing this on to me. The feeling is mutual believe me, I am always inspired by your creativity.
Oh and by the way, I cannot put Return down (Karen Kingsbury), I stayed up way past my bedtime last night! I will be through this one in a jiffy. See what you started? Another addiction for me!

Jennifer said...

My sister orders her burgers with cheese and ketchup only too. I thought she was about the only person who did that!!

And I did think it was weird when I found out you didn't like potatoes!:)
