Although i have lurked on several blogs for several years - I am pretty new to actually writing a blog everyday and commenting on other peoples blogs;(blogging can be a full time job)SO you could imagine how STOKED I was when I did my daily read of Wan Life To Live and saw that she had included me in her list of new bloggers to receive a stylish award!!!!

Me stylish??? :)))(I'd be lying if i told you i didnt do a little happy dance) It made me feel so accepted into the blogger community. (Corny - i know - Yet true!!)
