Thank you to Deborah, for awarding my blog here the Very Inspiring Blogger Award!  I love awards, primarily passing them on and seeing them whiz around the internet.  So here we go...

To accept the award, one must:
1. Display the award and link back to the person who nominated you.
2. State 7 facts about yourself.
3. Nominate 15 bloggers for the award.

Seven facts about myself:
1. I don't know what my natural hair color is anymore. Hrm...
2. I love cars.  I'm a secret petrol-head.
3. I'm kindof superstitious. I kindof believe in Feng Shui.
4. I'm engaged. Surprise!!
5. I'm not Irish.
6. Every time I leave the house, like *every* time, I *have* to go to Starbucks. I will always find an excuse.

Okay, time for 15 blogs that I absolutely adore!
1. Learning to Costume - and doing a great job of it!
