An Award from ONE of My FAVORITE BLOGGING BUDDIES PLUS I NEED SOME HELP FROM MY FRIENDS!

I Rarely Do Awards.....Not sure why, except that I am a bit embarrassed to get an award for sharing a little of my life... I always feel blessed to receive them...BUT THIS ONE came from one of my BEST BLOG BUDDIES. It was a very nice surprise to be honored with an award from ....Kat at Just a Beachkat. After reading her blog for so long, I finally jumped in, so her blog probably is the real reason I blog today.....The Honest Scrap award is to share "10 HONEST Things " about myself! Like Kat, I feel like I've shared everything about me with you already. I am really a VERY normal person, with a very normal family...BUT, I will give it a try.
  1. Honestly I feel tired just thinking about all the trees I have to decorate.
  2. Honestly I HATE exercise. (I keep hoping Kat will rub off on me)
  3. Honestly I love the RESULTS of any deep cleaning project and right now my closet is in BAD NEED.
  4. Honestly I am ALWAYS planning the next Disney trip.
  5. Honestly I always love a day that I never have to leave the house.
  6. Honestly I can count on one hand the times I have not made the bed in all our married life.
  7. Honestly I wish there were more hours in the day.
  8. Honestly I cannot go to bed at night until I take a HOT bath.
  9. Honestly I start feeling depressed near the end of football season
  10. Honestly I would rather rock a baby, especially one of my grandsons, more than anything in the world. They have ROCKED my WORLD.
Thanks Kat for the award....I pass this award on to all my blogging buddies. You are SPECIAL!

Now I need some help from you. I am planning a family trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming right after Christmas. This is an area where I have never been, so I need tips on lodging, restaurants, "fun don't miss activities", anything you can tell me that will help me plan the trip.. And if you EVER need Disney advice, just email me...My kids call me a Disney encyclopedia. So, I will look forward to some emails helping me plan this trip. Email me at annah99@aol.com ....(that email address confuses people, but Annah was our cocker spaniel for 17 years) I know some of you are fans of Jackson Hole....Help me out!

OK, lets have a GIVEWAY! I have had several giveaways on the Christmas blog...You were my first blog friends so I don't want to leave you out.... I will draw for this collection...a set of holiday file folders (so cute), matching notepad and the Christmas Cookie Book! I will get Parker to draw on Sunday night. All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog, on THIS post, telling me you sent a new friend to the Christmas blog.

I've never been to Jackson Hole in the winter - at least not since i was a child if then. But it is beautiful!!! Lots of warm clothes, of course as it can be very cold there. You have to visit the park with the antler arbors into the park. And i love the "Mangy Moose" tourist trap in the village area. Also, they have these funky green flags at the corners around the park (a "square") that you grab & wave as you are crossing. I guess, hopefully it makes you more visible to folks sightseeing & not watching where they are going. I thought i'd posted pics of this on my blog, but i can't find them.

Of course it has been just over 5 years since we were in Jackson Hole. We went to Yellowstone on our honeymoon & took a day trip down to Jackson.

Oh, how exciting for you! :)

Teresa,

I love the list that you have added so that we can learn even more about you. I too hate exercising. It makes me tired just thinking about it! I too love hot baths, but now that we installed a jacuzzi the bath tub just grew!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

So many of your "honestlies" are mine, too, especially: hate exercise and always planning the next Disney trip. I've just returned from my most recent trip to the Happiest Place on Earth, and now I'm in depression mode because I won't get to see it all dressed up for Christmas this year! Hop over and check it out for yourself, if you have time:
