Happy Victoria Day

It's a long weekend here in Canada. This is the the official opening to summer round here so there's some good old Canuck celebrating to be done.

Is there a better way for a blogger to celebrate a holiday than to be given an award?  Certainly not.  

I send a big Canadian holiday hug to Carrie at Hazardous Design for awarding me with a Versatile Blogger award.

The rules of the award mandates that I tell you 7 things about myself that you may not know and that I pass the award along to 7 blogs that I have recently discovered so here we go friends...

1.  I'm a total book nerd
2.  I love to work out and dream of being a lady of leisure and health clubs
3.  I'm a city girl but have taken my kids camping for 2 weeks with no husband...booyah!
4.  Did I say I love pink:!
5.  If salt & vinegar chips had to fight hickory sticks to the death I wouldn't know who to vote for:!
6.  My fluffy baby dog is almost 15 years old and I am determined to see her make it to 20:)
7. My desert island food is thai curry, mmmm!

And now on to the fun stuff.  Here are the fabulous blogs that I have nominated for the award...

1.  Sugar & Spice in the Land of Balls
2.  All Things Bright & Beautiful
3.  A View Along the Way
4.  Design Manifest
5.  A Prairie Perch
6.  You Me and The Weiner
7.  Gorgeous Shiny Things
8.  Just Bella
9.  All Kinds of Lovely
10.  Cozamia

On another happy note, I was the winner of a giveaway last week.  So Stinkin' Cute blog drew my name in a giveaway for Cosmic White.  It's a lip plumping lip gloss and teeth whitener in one.  How cool is that?

Happy Monday!
