The beautiful Lisa of the blog THE LISA PORTER COLLECTION awarded the Super Comments Award to me.  I can't think of a more talented, respected and lovely blogger than Lisa, so this award truly means a lot to me.

If you visit Lisa's blog, you also know that I am not exaggerating when I say that all of her posts are "feel good posts" that are full of life and beauty.  This talented lady is always helping other bloggers, referring us to the work of other talented, interesting people.

Lisa's post on the holidays, designers, recipes, new business ventures are wonderful as are her posts about her life with her precious family and canine.  Her love of family is so obvious in everything that she does, reflecting on her home, garden, and life at home.

Thank you Lisa for this award. You are a dear person, and I truly feel honored.



Now on to the rest... answering some questions.

1. Why do you blog?

2. Name your three best memories.

3. Name four of the best fiction books you have read.

4. What are the five best movies ever made?

5) Name five things I cannot live without.

6) If you could change your name what would it be?

7. Tell us a unique and interesting fact about yourself.

8) What do you love best about yourself?

9) If you had a freaky Friday experience, who would you change places with?

10) What is the best thing about being a woman?

1) I blog because I love to share and to see what others have to share.  I have also met so many wonderful bloggers since beginning my blog 15 months ago.

2) My three best memories are the birth of my two children, Joseph and Angela, and the day I passed the Series 7.

3) Pride and Prejudice, several times, Gone With the Wind, Great Expectations, The Adventure of Huckleberry Finn, Mrs. Dalloway.

4)  Sound of Music, Gone With the Wind, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Message In A Bottle, Out of Africa.

5) Flowers, fruit, coffee, iPad, Blackberry.  This could be a very long list :). 

6) Elizabeth or Katherine

7) Oh goodness.  This is a tough one.  I am a multi-tasker and sometimes hyper.  I don't usually give up easily.

8) My role as a mother, and the results of that role.

9) Oprah Windfrey.  I think I could learn a thing or two from Oprah!

10) Everything.

And now... I get to pass this award on to other beautiful bloggers.

Michelle at Notting Hill
Luciane at Home Bunch
Linda Merrill at Surrounding
Sarah at Haute Design
Annemarie at Brunch at Saks
Angela at belles & bows
Julie at Being Ruby

There are so many others that deserve this award too.  Many were awarded in my choices for the Stylish Blogger Award.

Again, thank you, Lisa, for such a nice and thoughtful award.  Visit Lisa's beautiful blog here.

Good morning Teresa,
Imagine my surprise as i'm flipping through google reader and suddenly i'm at my breakfast table!
Oh how I wish we were having a morning together. I would serve you my orange glazed cinnamon rolls with fresh juice and coffee by a roaring fire.
We could talk for hours about blogging, design, daughters, life...
You are a sweetheart and I thank you for your kind words always!

Always fun learning a little about other bloggers. I was trying to think of who I'd want to switch places with. Oprah, that's a good one!
