Divulging Family Secrets

I am going to be so late with my Friday post. I have been busily typing all week! I was working on my Foodie Friday post and now and so tired, all I can think of is bed. So, until later, I invite you to check out my Foodie Friday post on my recipe blog, Plates and Places. I am giving up some family secrets over there. Don't tell momma.....shhh!
Let me know what cha think!

I do want to thank these two wonderful ladies for bestowing me with these awards:

I am honored to be thought of as fabulous by someone as fabuous! Got that? Check out her website, and you will agree! I am lucky enough to have met Sandi and become "real life" friends with her. Sandi is a sweetheart, and one heck of a cook. I leave her blog daily craving something. Sandi describes herself: "Our family owned the Irondale cafe for many years...or more like it, it owned us! This is the very same cafe that was the basis of the novel that Fannie Flagg wrote." Remember Fried Green Tomatoes? Yes! That Fanny! Sandi and her husband Bill also manage WhistleStop Products, which is a website that features cookbooks and seasoning, among other great products. I have touted a couple of them here on my blog. Sandi helps with the Whistlestop Products Business when she is not working at her 'real job', as a Nurse Practitioner. She is always working on new products, cookbooks, and recipes! "Thanks Sandi, dahhhh-lin, You are fabulous!"
and
Chandy of What Now Tablescapes (among other fine blogs)was kind enough to give me this "award":

I am humbled. And I am lucky enough to be considered a friend by Chandy. Chandy is a blogger that I have "met" through tablescapes. She described herself as "a simple "Pinay" (Filipino), a student, a SAHM to three, a wife to great husband, who also practices Feng Shui and loves, loves, loves genealogy, blogging, entertaining and tablescapes. That means, a full household, busting shelves and 5 blogs!" And she does it all with such grace. I am proud to have traveled the path to her blog. She gives me much inspiration! Thanks Chandy! I am so appreciative!
Finally, I want to thank blogger, Karen of Still Magnolia! She was kind enough to think of me and send me three post cards for my collection from her trip abroad. She sent one from Ireland, London and Whales. Thanks Karen! Karen is another Alabama blogger, not far from my home. She has a wonderful blog, I encourage you to pay a visit. Karen also needs our prayers. Her father is battling a serious illness. Please lift him with your prayers.

Thanks for stopping by, y'all!
Leave me a "roadmap".....

Hey, Leigh, as usual I'm way behind trying to visit my friends. Love your tablescape below, so prety. I have the placemat that match that zebra runner & I love your little drapes that you found. We should go thrifting one of these days, since we both love it so much!

Thanks for the lovely comments. I had a ball picking out just the right postcard for you whereever I went. It was so much fun that even the rest of the group got involved....we would find one...and they would all vote on if it would be the one I sent to you. :-)

I know what you mean about being tuckered out - I'm not used to being busy outside the house during the day LOL and so with my extra activities tossed in for the past few weeks I can't seem to be able to read my favorite blogs! That has rarely happened before - I've missed you!

I'm so happy that others are giving you such great bloggy awards. You are just so Fab! No wonder everyone loves ya :)
