Stylish? - Me?

This week I was honored to be tagged with the Stylish Blogger award by Nance Lempinen-Leedy Canopy Crafts. The only issue with Nance tagging me with the award is that I cannot tag her back. I just love her blog it is so happy and her projects brilliant.

One of the responsibilities of the Stylish Blogger is to share 8 things about myself. I am pretty boring but here goes.

1) I have been with my husband for 26 years ( married 16) We met right after high school and we have 2 gorgeous children Megan (13) and Jake (9) whom I cart around to sporting activities, school, piano etc.
2) While driving, I change the lyrics of songs to make my kids laugh
3) I am almost always listening to music - I love classic rock, classical, country, hip hop, the Rat Pack, singers and songwriters, almost everything. It changes with my mood
4) I wake up with a different song in my head each morning - sometimes it's something I dislike which is annoying.
5) I grew up in a very small town Wilbur, Washington pop. approx 1000. It was like Mayberry -a wonderful place to grow up
7) I think I am the only one in the country who doesn't know the Electric Slide ( but I am a master of the Sprinkler) 
8) I am an avid reader
6) I can name all the states in alphabetic order in under  1 minute

Another responsibility of a stylish blogger is to tag 8 others with the Stylish Blog award. I am sure many of these ladies have received this before, but I must tag them. In no particular order.

1) Deb Henderson
2) Leanne Pugliese
3) Linda Callahan
4) Kathy Martin
5) Sandra Farrell
6) Renee Van Stralen
7) Carrie Gaskin
8) Teresa Kline
