  5. Yea for you, Erin!

    I would love to give blood. I have never been able to, but the Hubby does it every chance he can. Collecting antique chickens ... that is right up my alley! You do a blog post about your collection.

    I am lost without my computer and agree with your drama comment. Go Big Red! The Hubby likes to say that no one loves Nebraska like people from Nebraska. That and the best think he ever did for me was get me out of Nebraska ... than I scowl at him. lol

    1. I might Just have to do a post about my chicen collection! I am an antiquer at heart!! LOL I do have to say that I like the Huskers over any Kansas team but that's about as far as my liking of the Huskers goes. (Please don't hate me all my Nebraska Followers)

  7. Erin---I wanted to thank you again for thinking of my blog and following me!! As funny as it is, I started my blog as a way to keep friends and family informed on my day to day life in mexico and to be able to share pictures with them. Little by little more and more people are following it and enjoying it, which brings such joy to my heart. I love sharing my crazy life with others who appreciate it. Anyway, I don't think I have the time to complete the whole aspect of the award, and truth be told I don't know 11 other beginner bloggers to nominate. But I still wanted to answer the questions you posted for you nominees. Enjoy and keep up the fabulous work on your blog!!
