My First Award

I am so very excited right now.  Gayle from "One Cramazing Life" has awarded me the "Versatile Blogger" award and I am so honored.   This is my first award for Sweet Tea and Giggles and it means so much to me.  I have love to read other people's blog and it humbles me to know that others are reading mine and that I was given an award for just writing about our daily adventures.  Thank you so much Gayle.  If you are not following One Cramazing Life you really need because her blog is "cramazing".  :)
There are few rules things I must do in order to receive the award:

1) Thank the person who gave me the award.  Thank you so much Gayle!  :)
2) Share seven new things about ourselves.
3) Nominate 15 newly discovered blogs, and let the nominees know about the award. 

1. I was engaged to my husband after only 4 weeks of dating.  
2.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE college football.  More specifically The Ohio State Buckeyes!!!
3.  I have my own business called Pink Hippo Boutique.  I make party supplies for birthday, baby showers, other fun occasions.
4.  My brother passed away at the age of 39 unexpectedly.  The hardest day of my life thus far.
5.  When I was younger I played the flute and loved it.  I was actually very good and wanted to one day play in the Columbus Symphony Orchestra.  hehe
6.  I am addicted to the Twilight Saga and I have jumped from Team Edward to Team Jacob because Jacob is way cuter then Edward...yes I know I sound like a teenager.  
7.  This is probably no surprise because of my blog title but I LOVE sweet tea.  I go to Sonic almost everyday to get the RT44 size sweet tea.
