A Sweet Blog Award

Well, I have just arrived home from my parents home and visiting with my sweet daddy.  How lucky am I to have such a wonderful father.  This year for part of his Father's Day gift included two things about the two things he loves.  I gave him a keepsake box.  It is a wooden box that is lined in felt and has the US Marine Corp emblem on the top.  He loved it as I knew he would.  I also gave him some crimson and white pasta in shapes of things about the University of Alabama football.  He loved it too and thought it was so funny.  He told my mom she needed to cook some of it this week. 

I just took a look at my blog and saw that sweet Tina, from sent me a new award.  And oh how yummy it looks!  Thanks Tina!!

Now just like other awards, this one too has some rules.  First, thank the person who honored you with the award.  Second, tell 7 random things about yourself.  And third, pass it on to 8 friends.
Here are the 7 things about me.
