Stylish Blogger Award

I want to thank Tina at the Tightwad Mom's Frugal Forum blog for awarding me a Stylish Blogger Award!  Tina was one of the first visitors to my blog when I started it and her blog is one of my favorites, so to be given this award by her is a true honor!  Kind kudos, like this one, make the blogging so very worthwhile to me!  And now, it is time for me to pass along the honor to other deserving bloggers.

Here are the rules to the award:
     1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award.
     2. Share 7 things about yourself
     3. Award 15 other bloggers
     4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award

Okay here are seven (+) things about me:
  1. I love animals - I have two adopted Greyhounds and two cats.
  2. I am allergic to onions.
  3. I am not married.
  4. I love the beach, especially the North Carolina Crystal Coast region, and not surprisingly seafood is my favorite genre of food.
  5. My name is Denise (not "Budget Confidential - haha)... and I live in Ohio. 
  6. I enjoy gardening.
  7. I am currently working on a "brand" that has been inspired by reading the many frugal blogs, like the 15 below... and I hope to launch it sometime this year so STAY TUNED! 
Now, for fifteen FABULOUS blog (in no particular order):

How do you choose a favorite child?  Or even 15 favorite children?  I love these fifteen blogs for different reasons - some entertain me, some inspire me, some educate me, but most do all three.  And of course, I am sure I am omitting some excellent blogs in the process (sorry!). 


  1. Thank you, I really appreciate it.

  2. I,m blown away thanks so much !!!

  3. Wow thank you so much. I really appreciate the award. I enjoy visiting your blog.
