My First Award!

I would like to sincerely thank the lovely AppGal over at Musings on the Mountain and KatyO from The Violet Diary for giving me this award!  I am very grateful to have received it!

This award came with some instructions:
1. List seven things that make you awe-summm!!!
2. Pass the award on to seven bloggers you read religiously.
3. Tag those 7 bloggers.
4. Don't forget to link the Queen that tagged you.
5. Copy the pic and put it into your sidebar.

So, here goes:
1.  I am a certified advanced (130 ft) SCUBA diver.
2.  I have hiked Mt. Washington twice.
3.  I have donated 12+" of hair to Locks of Love twice.
4.  I am a happy "mom" to a crazy little dachshund, three chirpy parakeets, and one angry turtle.
5.  I love baking, and would love to open a bakery some day.
6.  I am proud to have "inherited" a love of birds, camping, and the color purple from my grandfather, who also taught me a little Swedish!
7.  I appeared on Jeopardy! (regular version) in 2005.

As for passing on this award, I think almost everyone I would have rounded out the list below with  has already received it so, so my list is just these two three super great ladies:

Thanks, FFM! Jeopardy! was a fun experience (and Alex Trebek is as snobby as SNL makes him out to be ;))

Hi Julia - you're welcome! I love your blog :) And I love your 7 things - I am so afraid of the sewing machine, it is so sad :(
