To accept the award the following questions need to be answered and passed along (because we are a group of ladies, we broke the questions up amongst us) :
11 Facts about ourselves:
- Lauralee- I am the mother of 2 boys (ages 8 and 1).
- Lauralee- I was born with 2 extra teeth that grew up my nasal cavity. I had them surgically removed when I was in pre-school (unfortunately, they couldn't be removed by picking my nose. Trust me, I tried). So don't ever let anyone tell you there is no such things as human unicorns (haha).

- What is your creative outlet? Sewing (Jenn)
- You have a night free from the family-where are you & what are you doing? At Target or DI looking for buried treasure. (Jenn)
