My first of 2011 !!!

It is freezing here in New England, and as I sit at my desk dressed in sweats AND a sweater, with a Yankee Candle burning (today it’s Sparkling Vanilla–hubby’s favorite), surrounded by my books, the heat cranked and I still feel like an ice cube

until a few minutes ago when I received a comment on my blog.  Have you guessed why?  Yup…that’s right…it’s that warm and fuzzy feeling when one of our peers inform us that they have an award for us.  And not only has Zakiya from Butterfly Feet Walking On Life has presented me with this honor, it is my first award for 2011 !!  If you haven’t visited her blog before, please take a minute, stop by, say hi and tell her CMash sent you.  The award is:
Thank you so much Zakiya!!!  I still get excited as much as I did when I accepted my first award!!
And now for the criteria: (which I will be taking some liberties with, as we all know that accepting and passing on awards take quite a bit of time and with Challenges just starting, we should all be reading  lol).
1) Thank the person who gave you the award, and link back to them in your post.

2) Tell us seven (7) 5 things about yourself.
3) Award 15  5 super-stylish bloggers this award 😀
4) Contact those bloggers and let them know they have won.
OK…Warning…Boring part coming up…you have my permission to skip this part!!!
  1.)  I am a homebody at heart
  2.)  I hibernate in the winter..I despise the cold.
  3.)  As stated above, I do my part by keeping Yankee Candle in business.  I have a candle burning every day.
  4.)  It amazes me that hubby and I will be married for 30 years come April, where did the time go?
  5.)  We thought we would have a hard time accepting the fact that we were going to be empty nesters, that lasted about 3 days and now we are loving it  lol.
And now I pass the torch to the following, in no particular order:
