We have been Blessed to be Awarded the Cherry on Top And the Versatile Blogger award; Awarded to us from At home with Rebecka. Rebecka is an AMAZING food, recipe, tutorial blog with some Stunning images, easy to follow tutorials and DELICIOUS recipes! Definitely one of my favorites to follow! You Should DEFINITELY visit her blog and follow her to stay up to date on her amazing Creations! You can also visit her Facebook GROUP
As part of the Awards Presentation I’m to share 7 things about myself and then pass the award onto 15 of my favorite blogs. So; Lets get started! I’ll try not to repeat too many from our previous ABCS about me post

1. I don’t like Left Overs. Silly I know; especially since I’m particular about living Frugally; but I just do not like them. There are a few meals I will eat leftovers from; but not many.

2. I hate the cold. We are definitely Living in the WRONG state–(Idaho) lol.

3. I Have an Associates Degree; and would live to return to college when my kids get older and complete a Bachelors in University Studies and take as many Homemaking, Language, communications, music, and Culinary Arts classes as I can until they FORCE me to Graduate.
4. I have a new found addiction to Blogs and Giveaways..thus why I am always introducing new blogs to you all and also finding as many giveaways as I can for you too. I LOVE them. May as well pass them onto you!
5. I’m a Cowgirl at heart. Born and raised in Wyoming; I ADORE horses and Riding and Secretly still love Country Music (especially Tim McGraw)

6. I’m addicted to Young Adult fiction. I don’t know why but I enjoy it more than Regular Adult books. Matched, Hunger games, Twilight, Harry Potter, Fablehaven, Percy Jackson, Mortal Instruments,..ALL of them! I love them!  I always have to have a stack of books next to my bed and I can’t go to sleep unless I’ve read a little from them each night.
7. I use Cloth Diapers! And PROUD of it. Cloth diapers have really come a LONG way since our Parents and Grandparents used them. Now they are stylish, easy to use, easy to clean (thank you WASHING MACHINE!) and Amazing for the Pocket book and keeping leaks at bay! Plus, we are Green Conscious; not thrilled about having Chemicals in our home that could harm children and Cloth Diapers eliminate the issue of the chemically filled disposable diapers..have you ever had a wet diaper rip open and spill all those little toxic beads across your floor that are impossible to vacuum up? Yeah, I have. I’m grateful for my cloth diapers!

1. Made By Marzipan

    OH I am So boosting with excitement from all of you!
    Thank you for all the great comments! Kathy; I love reading your blog AND your comments on my blog. lol. IT makes me feel great about myself too! And yeah, if it wasn't for pure desperation I never would have Discovered Cloth diapers; but when my husband quit his job to go back to school..we had to make some Cost cuts and that was one of the MAJOR monthly expenses we could cut. Who would have thought I'd love it so much? lol

    @Karen-our Schokoschneke is being created as we speak! Waiting for the dough to rise..I can't wait to show it to you all, but more than that; I can't wait to EAT it. lolol.

    @Brae (Volcano) I've seen you around quite a bit from MBS and VB and also on Etsy (we have etsy too.) I love your Upscaled items! Yeah, Utah is in the same boat as us..Cold weather. /bleh. lol. And to think when we move in 2 years it will probably be to Utah. lolol.

  13. I love your list!! I did not use cloth diapers and since my youngest is now 6 I won't have the chance, I do have to say they are very cute, and I think it's great that you use them!! It always freaked me out a bit when the diapers would explode and you would see all those beads! I am also addcited to reading and finding new blogs, my google reader is so full!!! Thank you so much for the shout out, I so appreciate it!! I also love to read your comments on my posts, they always make me feel so good!!
    So now you have me feeling really great about myself!! xoxo

  14. Ooooh! This is my first time here, but I think I love your blog! I also saw you over on MBS, but I'm here from VB Members to remember. Can't wait to see more!
