I got this beautiful award from Tami at Hearts Make Families. She is a publisher at Macaroni Kid, have you seen it? Get signed up for their emails! Thank you so much for my award Tami and I appreciate you thinking of me. This is the first time I have received this award. Head on over and read the questions that Tami had to answer. I liked here answer to #9:

"Why do you blog? I blog for several reasons. I started blogging for my kids though. This is my kid’s memoirs. I want them to know their mother and never to question my love for them. But now I blog for an outlet. I blog for my readers and my bloggy friends that I have developed. I blog to help others."

Here are the rules for this award! Answer the questions, make up ten of your own, and pass it on to seven others. (I am going to break the rules since I just did this one recently) You are more than welcome to play along if you want.

If you could interview anyone in the world for your blog, who would you choose and why?
I am going to go with John Travolta/Kelly Preston. John Travolta has been my all time favorite forever. Since the death of their son I have really wanted to just sit with them, hold them and cry with them. Now if I were able to choose someone from heaven, besides Jesus, I would say Princess Diana. I loved her and admired her.

Can you remember your last dream? What was it?
It had something to do with pizza.

Name 3 places you’d like to go on vacation too.
Paris, Hawaii and England (would love to visit Diana's grave)

What scares you the most?
Losing my loved ones.

What is your favorite book of all time?
Nothing is coming to mind but most likely a Danielle Steel book.

What’s the funniest movie that you’ve seen?
I am sure I have seen many but I really laughed at "The Hangover"

Where are your kids right now?
I am sure my son is at work at Cedars Sinai and my daughter is asleep over in the end of the house she is currently living in!

What was the last thing you ate?
Leftover Blackberry Cobbler

Are you usually late, early or right on time?
On time!

What is your favorite band or singer?
It's always been Barry Manilow however I love Steely Dan, CSN and Chicago.

P.S. These were answered prior to my weekend away so blackberry cobbler was not really the last thing I ate!

I love reading these random types of Q&A's...I get to learn interesting little tidbits about you that normally I wouldn't.

I love CSN. For my 35th birthday my husband got me the best seats at Madison Square Garden to see was one of my all time favorite concerts.

Loved this beautiful award it so fits you and the reason you blog.

I too, love the people you mentioned to interview. These are movers in the world, never waiting for "others" to get things started.

Great list!
