Things you probably don't want to know?

First, let me thank 2 great ladies and bloggers for nominating me for the Stylish Blogger Award.  Please be sure to visit them :

Melanie (who has 2 blogs)  Lucky 7  and Momma J and the Fashionistas .

I think this is a great way to get to know new bloggers. However, I am still working on the "Stylish" part of blogging still, so if my posts seem somewhat not right, please let me know and feel free to give me "help" :)

7 Things about me:

  1. I am a Type A Personality. Which is good and bad, but lately more "bad". You see for some reason   lately, it keeps me from finishing something (if I don't think it is perfect), for fear of failure???? However, if I have a deadline, then it gets finished.
  2. I worked for a big corporation for 10 years, and also received a certification as a CPM. Everything changed after babies and I left to stay home with my children.
  3. There have been days that I wish I still had a corporate job. Although most day I am grateful that I don't :)
  4. I love to shop, especially for "bargains". Shopping is "therapy" to me :) Not for my husband though?
  5. I love Interior Design and have been trying to finish an on-line course. However, this proves difficult for me (Type A), not having a teacher to physically ask and look at your project. I am definitely a classroom learner in this type of class.
  6. I have bins of craft stuff and interior design stuff. I am constantly looking around to see what I can change. It drives my husband absolutely crazy at times. Especially when he knows I may want to, Ummm........PAINT??? 
  7. When I am determined and have a plan....Get out of my way :)
Well, I hope that wasn't toooo long winded :) Now maybe you have TMI, as my daughter would say.

I am supposed to pass this on to other blogger, but at this point everyone I know has received it or do not do awards?

So here's what I think? If you are a blogger and have not received this award, but would love to share 7 things about yourself, let me know and I will post it here for everyone to visit. I know your thinking "Oh, I could never do that."  I am telling you "Yes you can.", because how else do we get to know each other, right??? Also, if I see someone doesn't have it I may nominate them in the future:)

Thanks for stopping by and please do come back again,


  1. Sweet! I have type A personality too:) I so relate to you LOL...

  2. I really relate to #'s 1 & 6. Hmmm . . . I wonder what that means?? LOL

  3. Congratulations on your award!
    Pamela :)

  4. I have awarded you the Versatile blogger award

  5. Congrats on the award Chrissy!

    I think I have a twin-YOU! All of the things you listed describe me perfectly, with the exception of the deisgn 'class' since I already run an Interior Design business.

    I understand how you feel about projects and not finishing, I can relate, I'm a 'recovering perfectionist' and as you said, it can be an all or nothing mindset. The last four years of being married to my disorganized hubby have helped me mellow out a bit. ;)I'm actually writing an upcoming post about it.

    I received the award a week ago but still need to post and list my '7 things'.

    Thanks for stopping by to comment on my new blog design. :)
