OMG, Awards!

I love getting awards! It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, like somebody really cares. *happy sigh*

So I have two new awards as follows:

The lovely Jodi Henry gave me the L'Aussie's Fair Dinkum Award which made me think, "awww, so sweet!" In Aussie-speak fair dinkum apparently means real or genuine. Thanks Jodi! I'm supposed to pass it on to 6 other bloggers.

The second award is the Stylish Blogger Award, given to me by Sarah at Glissades and Gabbles. Wow, nobody  has ever called me stylish before. *blush*

I'm supposed to thank the person who gave it to me, (Thanks Sarah!) and tell you 7 things about myself, then pass it on to bloggers I think are great!)

Because I'm a rebel and a cheater-pants of the highest order, I will tell you 7 things about myself, but I will combine the pass-it-on lists for both awards into one list. Hey, in my book, rules are made to be broken!

Seven Things about Mara:

1. Donuts and pancakes are my favorite foods. Oh, and homemade bread. There is no better scent on the planet than fresh-from-the-oven homemade bread. But since I'm trying to follow a low carb diet, I don't get to eat those things as much as I wish I could. *sniff*

2. If I could choose several historical people to hang with for a day, I might choose (but then again, I might choose other people):
         a. King Arthur
         b. Queen Elizabeth I
         e. Da Vinci
         f.  Ben Franklin
         g. Hatshepsut 

3. My biggest phobias are balloons and spiders.

4. My biggest vice is that I like to drive fast.

5. My favorite color combinations include greens, blacks, browns, and shades of purple.

6. I like winter better than summer, and consequently prefer mountains and prairies to beaches.

7. My favorite styles of art are: Art Nouveau and Impressionism.

My Pass-it-On list includes a total of 7.
