Oh My....Goodness, My First Award!

Everyone, let me just say that I am beyond floored...I just received my first blog award and first blog feature! So, here's my bloggy-world week recap: first guest blog post.....first blog award....first blog feature.... and first blog giveaway win....Yes, that's a lot for this girl to take in, but I am really trying. Let's just say that Mr. X can skip showering for uhhmmm, two days...that's how stoked I am about all this.


So, I was told that as a the award recipient, I must do the following things:
1. Thanks the awarding blogger
2. Share seven (7) things about myself; and
3. Pass the award on to fifteen (15) bloggers who I believe deserves this award!

Thanks to Colleen from Adventures of a Small Town Girl, I really appreciate the award! You are absolutely amazing to have awarded me this, and I will try to live up to expectations. Everyone please check out her blog when you get a chance.

Seven things about myself that you may not know:
1. I am the 7th child of ten - yes, I come from a very large family!
2. I have 24 nieces and nephews, so holidays and birthdays are a little hard for me.
3. I was born on the island of Jamaica....
4. I am very stubborn and sometimes a little obsessive - OCD..
5. I love to travel - the last place I visited that was very exciting was the Bahamas...
6. I have known Mr. X for thirteen (13) years - the first 12 of which we were friends and by the way, he was one of my "older guy" first college crush - wewww...
7. I have two little doggies, the eldest is Koby (he is a YorkiPoo) and the youngest is Kylie (she is a LhasaPoo) - a little narcissistic - Kiki, Koby and Kylie!!
