An award...for me?

Some one likes me y'all.  No really, someone does.  I didn't make this up.  Karen at Goodbye City, Hello Suburbs nominated me for a stylish blogger award.  Just when I thought I about lost everyone with my lack of posting, and when I do post they are crazy long and scattered.  But nope, she wasn't scared away. :)

So here's how it works...

There are RULES to this stylish blogger award:
1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award. 
2. Share 7 things about yourself. 
3. Award 10-15 recently discovered great bloggers. (Um, I'm just tellin' you now, I am cutting this down to 5 or can too.)
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.
Okay, 7 random things about me...
1. I used to have a crush on Kevin Bacon, I saw Footloose when I was 6 or 7 and I was hooked.  I used to like the older men ;)  Two of my other childhood crushes, Scott Baio and Ralph Macchio (wouldn't touch either of them now.)
2.  I have curly hair but straighten it as much as possible.  I would hate to be without my flat iron.

3.  I often never leave the house without chapstick.  Doesn't matter what brand.  Chapped lips are a no-no.
4.  I hate doing dishes and laundry.  I hate dusting and cleaning toilets.  I hate picking up the endless piles of toys, taking out the trash, and hanging up clothes.  But I really really hate having a dirty house even more.  It feels like I can't breath when stuff piles up or gets dirty so I clean and pick a lot.  My husband is not like me, he can care less if things are messy or dirty and doesn't get bent out of shape when the house looks like a tornado hit on the inside.  He only helps clean because he loves me and knows I get a little nutso when things look bad.

5.  I have a Craigslist addiction.  It's bad.  If they had a Craigslist addicts support group I would join.  Heck I could be president of the club!

6.  My son has been watching Bolt and Up almost everyday for the past 2 weeks.  He just started being interested in movies and he watches those ALL the time.  The other day instead of being irritated that Up was on for the 20th time that day, I was happy because I was able to shower without him getting in to stuff.  He watched the movie and kept me updated on what was happening while I was in the shower. 

7.  I kind of like the smell of pipe smoke.  It's strangely more comforting than nauseating like cigarettes are.  My great grandfather smoked a pipe, he was such a nice man, and that's one of the things I remember about him from my childhood.  He always sat on his porch outside and smoked his pipe when we would visit.  Anyone else associate good memories with certain smells?
