Pink Saturday & I've been Tagged! Okay, Here it Goes Again...

     This sweet little print is actually pressed tin.  I bought this many years ago and it hangs in my powder room.  I haven't the heart to change it out.  I still love it.   Please click here to visit all of the other fun Pink Saturday projects!   Beverly of How Sweet the Sound is hosting this fun weekend activity!

      Third time is a charm. Right?   I am trying to remember  the most wonderful post that I created two days ago.    It was so frustrating.  I  typed the post almost to the end -   then click.  It  snapped off.     I attempted it again.   Almost to the same point  -  snap - Aaaarrrrrrggggghhhh!
      Sweetie suggested I search the drafts.  I hurried back -but no such luck.   Just the title remained.   Drat!    
Liz, from The Quilted Cowgirl bestowed upon me the I LOVE YOUR BLOG award which of course, comes with the usual rules.   It also had 30+ questions attached to it that had to be answered in one word.   So here it goes again......
  1. Where is your cell phone.   Charging
  2. Where is your significant other?   Who's that?
  3. Your hair color?   Medium Ash Blonde (actually dark brown)
  4. Your Mother?    home

  9. The room you're in?   kitchen, always
  10. Your hobby?   gardening, cooking, baking, shopping, blogging
  11. Your fear?   snakes & freeways
  12. Where do you want to be in 6 years?   Here

  14. What you are not?   Rich
  15. One of your wish list items?   Money
  16. Where you grew up?   Minnesota

  18. What are you wearing?   jeans
  19. Your TV?   HGTV (House Hunters International)
  20. Your Pet?   Miles
  21. Your computer?   Macbook
  22. Your Mood?   happy
  23. Missing someone?   my Gramma

  29. Your favorite color?   green/home, red/clothes, pink/accessories
  30. When was the last time you laughed?   today
  31. When was the last time you cried?   today
I know that I was supposed to answer with one word, but sometimes that just doesn't cut it.
Well, on to the next tag.

Here is my photo from the 6th picture from the 6th roll.

Oh yes, I remember this!   Jacob and my niece Amanda are driving
the go-karts at Mount Olympus theme park.   It is attached to  
 the Treasure Island  Waterpark, in Wisconsin Dells, WI.
The park is a lot of fun.  It consists of several different go-kart tracks, one
even has the cars driving under a pond and through a tunnel, and another
through a trojan horse.  It also has a few very scary wooden roller coasters.

     Kathi from Lavender, Lace & Thyme passed on the Kreative Blogger award and the cups of coffee awards.    I need to list 6 things I value and 6 things I don't.....

6 Things I Value:
My family (especially my Mom)
My Friday off (that I usually spend with my Dad:) )
My job (I'm glad that I have one - LOL)
My friends, blogging friends
Snow days - the kind that cause a shut-in, for cooking, baking, game playing, movie  watching

6 Things That I Don't:
Rude people
Campaign commercials on TV
The hours that I put in at work.....
Homework and the time it requires
People talking on cell phones  - talking loudly in restaurants and while in line.....

    I hope that I have covered all the bases.  So far, so good.  I have made it to the end.  I am not going to list  recipients,  because it would be hard to narrow it down,  and besides I think that you guys already have all the awards.  In the past two days I think that they have all been passed around.  If you see one that you don't have on my sidebar, then go ahead and take it.  Be my guest.   
  Hopefully, this posts.....Robyn

Good Morning Robyn!

What a fun post, I loved all the things you wrote about yourself :)...yes, it seems the awards have been going around. I enjoy reading the ones that list things about you but never know who to tag and who's received them or not, then there's feelings...sigh.

I just think Jacob is the cat's meow! :>

Wishing the both of you have a great weekend!

Kathi :)

Thanks for sharing your favorite vignettes..hugs ~lynne~
