Awards and an Interview

I received this award from Tam, Yakiddy Yak Yak which I thought was really cool. Nothing better than a girl-friend, I think you know what I mean. They are the best. Near or Far, they are the best. I have a few questions to answer before I pass on this award. Brace yourself girlies...

1. Do you have the same friends since childhood?
Not really. My first best friend Erica moved to my hometown when we were in the 2nd grade. We remained besties until college and things really changed. I miss Erica, but in the meantime I became really good friends with new people and not so new people.

2. What do you value most about your friends?
This is the easiest to answer. My real friends and I let it all hang out. It's like unconditional love. They know probably everything there is to know and they still consider themselves my friends. You can't ask for more than that!! One in particular knows everything and I love her like a sister my parents failed to provide :)

3. Are your friends sounding boards?
But of course...

4. What is your favorite activity to share with friends?
Laugh. My friends are the only people in my life, that make me belly laugh. When I laugh they laugh too. It's really that bad or good. However you want to look at it. I cannot recall laughing like that with any boyfriend or even the hubby.
There's just nothing like a true friend. Everyone needs one!! I absolutely LOVE ALL of mine!!
Time to pass this on to some new and old friends.
Monique, Eye Candy, you know I just have to hear what you have to say.
Tania, Farm Chicks Kitchen, every friend HAS to share a good recipe.
Carol, Charli and Me, I know she's awful busy with very important things lately, but she's a great gal I love to visit everyday. I hope you are doing well my friend.
Kathy,Sweet Home Gardens, one crafty lady who has a beautiful home, a wonderful family and so talented I turn green with envy.
I would love to hear what any of you have to say so I present this award to everyone else that would love to take part. As always, everyone really deserves this award 'cause you gals are the best!!

Congratulations on your award - you totally deserve it. As a newbie, you embraced me and made me feel good about posting every day. At least I had one reader! I forgot how I even stumbled over here, but I am so glad I did.

I just saw your profile that you are in corrections, and I too have worked in the county jail - so maybe our personalities have something in common!

Thank you so much for the award! You are a peach, a doll, the best thing cooking, and I really thank you!

I will scour the net to see how the heck I can send you an award one of these days - I'm still learning!
