Stylish Blogger Award

When I first started this blog, I had no idea what I was doing, I still dont, but Im enjoying the ride and I appreaciate all of you faithful followers for putting up with me!

One of my first followers was this amazingly cute and talented
Christina from Christina's Adventures
She very soon became my inspiration.

So when she messages me the other day and awards me with this Stylish Blogger Award I was speachless!
Stylish me? Naw!

Flattered? VERY MUCH SO!
So thank you Christina you guys go check her out now! Give her some support she's getting ready for her first craft fair!

So here are the rules with this award:

1. Thank & link back to the person who awarded you this.

Which is the wonderful Christina from Christina's Adventures

2. Share 7 things about yourself.

Ok 7 things huh...
1. I am from Kauai, which is an island in Hawaii with a population of roughly 65,000 people, on the entire island! It makes it a great place to grow up and at the same time not a great place to grow up. You cant get in trouble on the playground whithout your parents, aunties, uncles and grandparent finding out by lunchtime and waiting for you to give you lickens when you get home.

2. I have a 20 month old son that I love with all my heart. He's my lucky boy. We tried and tried to get pregnant for a long time and when we finally did, I miscarried at about 11 weeks. We waited a few years and then when we bought out first home decided to try again. 8 months later we were tired of trying. I finally got pregnant and went into labor early at 28 weeks. They stopped the labor and I went home. At 37 weeks he was anxious to meet us and so after 19 hrs of labor he was born just in time to find out his umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck twice!! Thank God he is fine active healthy boy!

3. I work full time for a demolition company.
(so building and creating is not something I'm used to LOL)

4. I have been married to my husband for 10 years! Yes 10 years! I met him in highschool and we were friends. Got married at 21 and it took all these years before we had a child!

5. My ethnic background consists of:
Japanese, Portuguese, Hawaiian, Irish, Mexican & Moorish

6. I was the first woman kickboxing match on the island.
(kinda random but a fun story to tell my kids one day)

7. I have a huge sweet tooth and a keen nose for it too. I can smell chocolate on someones breath! Im blind as a bat! no seriouslly Im blind! I have a restriction on my license and can't walk down my hallway without my glasses or contacts, so I really do see the world differently :-)

Rhiannon, congratulations on your award, you & your blog are super duper stylish!! So you're a chocolate-loving kick-boxing wife and mom who knows a thing or two about bringing down the house. So to speak. Would never have guessed some of those things. I love your description of your island and island life!!

Anyway, thank you for sharing the stylish blogger love. I appreciate it. Hope you have a fabulous Thanksgiving week :) Diane @ home sweet homemade
