Me, Myself and I

Dear friends,

Suzan, from Simply Vintageous, nominated me for "Tell me about yourself Award". Suzan is adorable. She has an upbeat personality and it is always supportive in her comments. She has a wonderful blog, visit her if you have a minute!

In order to accept this award I need to say 7 things about myself and nominate 7 bloggers out there to do the same!
I hope I will find 7 interesting things to say about myself, LOL!

Here we go:
1. I LOVE a good LAUGH. I laugh at myself, I laugh about silly things, and I laugh when I am not supposed to. Like if you fall or trip in front of me, I will laugh. It is good most of the time, but sometimes is bad... LOL!

2. My husband David is my third husband, and is actually my fiancee. We were supposed to get married in May 2012 but decided not to because we had too many things going on this year - my son's Graduation in June and his daughter's Wedding in September. He is my THIRD husband and I am his THIRD wife. I don't really understand exactly WHY we want to get married... Third time lucky???

3. I HATE raw onions and bananas!

4. I am picky with food. Everything needs to be really CLEAN in the preparation or I won't eat it... it grosses me out if people try out of the pan, or leave food out on the counter too long, etc. 

5. I HATE trying clothes!! I love buying stuff for the house, but cannot stand shopping for myself...

6. I am a scaredy cat. I am afraid of bugs such as spiders... and I am afraid of strangers, for example I won't open the door to someone I don't know.

7. I have never been this happy. I found this new business and wonderful blogging friends which brought a new light into my life. I am so grateful.

I have many bloggers I love, let me pick 7 that I have not nominated yet:

Janine, from A Bit of Whimsy
Donna, from Funky Junk Interiors
4 Sisters, from Bringing Beauty
Lady Pamela, from Lady Pamela's Cottage
Kristel, from The Velvet Door
Crafty Canadian from Crafty in Canada
Tammy, from A Walk in the Country Side

If you have a chance, go check them out!
Enjoy your weekend!

    1. Dear Suzan!!!
      I wrote this post and left the house in a hurry!!!
      Did not even have time to come and tell you about it!!!
      I am so glad you were the first to comment!!!
      Yes, we do have lots of things in common!
      Thanks again for the Award!!!
      I broke my head trying to post the picture on my sidebar, will try again from my PC.
      I am trying to adapt to David's Mac and it is a struggle...

  2. Claudine I came over to see what you have been doing - expecting painting and getting ready for antique shows, but YOU have been globe-hopping! I loved reading your answers. We are direct opposites who love all things thrifty!
    Donna (Thanks for leaving such a nice compliment!)

    1. Hi, Donna!!! I missed you! I replied to you by email, forgot to reply here!
      Yes, I have been busy! So glad to be home!
      I am surprised to hear we are opposites! I know we both have a great sense of humor!!!

  3. Hi Claudine! Thank you so much for thinking of my blog! I don't really participate in the blog awards, not because I don't appreciate the thought because I DO, but because I really don't have the extra time. Once again, I'm honored that you thought of me! And congratulations to you as well!!!

    1. Dear Tammy!
      You are very welcome, I love your blog!!!! And don't worry about writing a post. It is supposed to compliment you, not to bring you worries, lol! I understand completely!
      Thank you so much for coming over!

  4. Hi Claudine, I loved reading a little about you, and thank you for nominating me as well, I will let you know if I get the courage to post a little about myself...scary. One thing we have in common, I love food too, even raw onions, although they always make me cry. I also love your attitude, we need more people like you out there. Hope you have a wonderful week

    1. Dear Kristel, you are welcome!
      I know, I also keep thinking, what to write, lol! I am afraid to share too much, you know?
      And we never know if people will be interested, so I space the Award posts out. So people don't get tired of reading about me, LOL!
      Thank you so much for the compliment, I try hard to be positive!
      And thank you for taking the time to come over and comment!

  5. Hi Claudine! What a fantastic post for me to read on my first visit to your blog. I love your positive attitude and my favs were #1, 2 & 7. Your honesty & down-to-earthness is refreshing.

    p.s. Thanks again for visiting my blog. I'm looking forward to getting to know you through the Interwebz. (:

    1. Awww,THANK YOU, Dajana!!! I always get surprised when people like what I write!!!
      Yes, I am very honest, and it is one of those things... some people love it, some people HATE IT! I am glad you like it!
      I have to make a section on my blog with only local bloggers, so I can read local blogs more often! So many great people out there!
      Thank you for coming over, too!
      I will keep in touch!

  6. Well, Claudine, I finally got around to writing my post. It was harder than I thought, but it was fun. I hope my posts will be a little more regular now. All I needed was a little push.

    1. Hi, Pamela!!!!
      I am SO HAPPY!!!! I am coming over to read it!!!
