And the award goes to...


A few weeks ago Holly at Naptime gave us the Stylish Blogger award and Katie from The Romantic Type awarded us the Great Blog Neighbor award.  Everyone should go check these blogs out now.  Seriously, I'll wait.  Thank you so much, ladies!  You rock!  :)

Rules for accepting the Stylish Blogger Award:
1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Pass this on to 13 other great bloggers
4. Contact the selected bloggers and tell them about their award

7 things about Jake and Alison of Welcome Sunshine Home
1. Jake bakes cakes for me to give other people.
2. I decorate the cakes.  The fun part!
3. Then, no one does the dishes...until every fork and dinner plate in our house is dirty.  
4. Jake does household cleaning and maintenance stuff without being asked.  He makes an effort to help with laundry, sweeping, dog hair removal, window washing, yard care, etc.  No, you can't borrow him!    
5. I do my best and fastest cleaning when I'm upset.  Hmm, maybe I should get upset more often.
6. Jake can cook too.  He makes an awesome Chicken Parm dinner and is quite skilled in making breakfast.  
7. We've had dinner out almost every night for a couple weeks.  Our Maytag dishwasher was recalled for a faulty heating element and then in a bizarre twist of fate our Maytag electric range (oven and all four burners) stopped working while cooking breakfast one Saturday morning.  Both appliances were purchased brand new only three years ago and have been used infrequently gently used.
