Chapter 2 page 238 - Stylish Blogger Award

ThanksHolly @ RustBeltRunner for awarding me this awesome award. It's my first blog award and I'm a little uncertain as to the protocol so here goes . . .

(clears throat) "I'd like to the thank the academy for their nomination and vote. I'd like to thank this blog's producers and writers. I'd like to thank God for His grace. And oh, yeah, I'd like to thank my wonderful husband. (cue the music). Wait, I just have to thank the awesome mentor bloggers I look up to out there in the blogosphere"

Here are the Rules for the Stylish Award:
• Make this post and link back to the person who gave the award to me
• Share 7 things about myself
• Award 5 great bloggers
• Contact the bloggers to tell them they've won

  1. You are too cool lady! The only way you'd be cooler is if you taught sex ed in sign language.

  2. @ Kimberly - funny you mention that. I used to have an interpreter when I had deaf students in my sex ed class - that DID.NOT.WORK. Sign language is a VERY visual language. NOPE NOPE NOPE! Couldn't have the rest of the class learning some of those signs!!!! No way - the deaf students came for a little one on one lesson after class . . . AWAY from the other students!!!

  3. Great stuff! Thanks for sharing :)
