My first Award! Passing it on!

I received the Stylish Blogger Award from sweet Annette at One Perfect Room (thank you so much!). 

As part of receiving the award, you must share 7 random facts about yourself and nominate other bloggers, so here goes.

Seven random tidbits about me:
1) My husband and I love to introduce ourselves to strangers with a big umm, falsehood about our names, who we are, where we are from and what we do for work…  So, I may go with something like – I am Shaniqua from from Alaska, am an Eskimo and for work, I’m a wrestler. Makes people remember you.
2) I have an extra set of ribs.
3) I’ve dressed up as a goth, to live a day in the life. Would like to do more of these experiments. I love human behavior experiments. I enjoy psychology.
4) I worked in  full-time youth ministry for a number of years.
5) I’ve lead an entire restaurant in song before.  No, nothing cool… just Row Row Row Your Boat.
6) I am very allergic to corn and soy, in all forms. So, we don’t eat out.  I am thankful we figured out this was the culprit of some major illness for a while… feeling much better now.
7) I grew up with my own pony named Lightning.  (And, yes, I grew up in Texas.)

In one month of blogging, I’ve already met some fabulous bloggers on here!  I am amazed by that.  Thank you for embracing me.

With that being said, I would like to pass the Stylish blogger award to some of these ladies.   They are not new bogs, but new-ish to me and these ladies have been particularly warm to me.   Thank you!  Check out their sites if you have the time!
