~Catching Up~

Hi everyone!
This is Alex, my son Nick's daughter, as I've mentioned before they live about 30 minutes from us and I don't get to see her as often as Syd & Sam, so today I watched her while her mom and dad went to the Pitt game:) Stush was making both of us laugh while taking the picture, hate that because I don't like my picture taken anyway:) oh, and Linda...the Red Sox shirt I have on bought at the sports store across the street from Fenway Park for $5.00 on the clearance rack.lol Anyway, she's a little sweetheart and I'm so glad I got to spend some time with her:) Yesterday in the mail came "Frosty" that I won on Angie's giveaway from Simple Thyme Primitives. He is so neat and so well made, stuffed to perfection too! Plus two cross stitched ornies that will go so well on my prim tree! Angie also sent along a very prim card too and I must say she has beautiful handwriting:) Thanks Angie, I really needed to smile yesterday, I just love him!
As you can see I'm trying to catch up on things that I promised to post...my good friend Sandy from For the Love of Prims is having a 100th post giveaway, isn't everything she is giving away so neat? So stop by for a visit and find out how to enter!

Sandy also gave me this Friendship award which I think is so cute...I like the words on each cup... Trust, Kindness, Honesty and Caring that to me is a friend!!! Sandy, I'll proudly post this on my blog, thank you friend I love it:) Now to answer the questions:)

1. Do you have the same friends since childhood?
In one of my posts I showed a picture of a friend that I've had since 7th grade and we always talk and have a good time when we see each other. The friends from a really younger age I'd say no, just don't see them anymore.
2. What do you value most about your friends?
Their honesty and trust! I think you need those two qualities to have a friendship right off the bat!!!
3. Are your friends sounding boards?
Yes and no...somethings I prefer to talk only to Stush about but other things I will throw out there and I trust them to tell me their honest opinion.
4.What is your favorite activity to share with friends?
We like to go out to dinner alot, usually my friend's husbands are Stush's friends too so that makes it fun too!
Now I have to pick some bloggers that I want to give this award to but I really count you all as my friends, so if you want this award from me please take it I really want you to:)
Tomorrow I'll be at the Steeler game, Stush has warm clothes for me and I know I'll be at least a little warm, I'm also taking a fuzzy Steeler blanket to keep me even warmer:0 We go on a bus with all of our friends so it will be alot of fun.
Have a great Sunday:)
