WHAT?!?! I won an Award?!?

I was honored to see that my friend Carrie who blogs over at Simply Fitting Into Life…and my old jeans, gave me this award 🙂

Isn’t it pretty and shiny and new?   I feel honored to have been included with such remarkable bloggers 🙂

With this award comes some responsibilities, and here they are:

  1. Post and link back to the person who gave you this award.
  2. Share 7 things about yourself.  
  3. Pass the award on to 15 recently discovered great bloggers (or as many as you can).
  4. Contact these bloggers and tell them they’ve won!

So, 7 things about me…

  1. I’ve changed my major 4 times and attended 3 different schools. I’ve finally settled on a business degree with a focus on Marketing. This one will stick. I have only a handful of classes left and can FINALLY see the light at the end of the tunnel – I will FINALLY have my Bachelor’s degree in DEcember 2011
  2. I only own 13 pairs of shoes/boots. There are only a few I actually wear with any regularity. I prefer to be barefoot at every possible moment.
  3. I am crafty – I paint, crochet, scrapbook, cross stitch, make hair bows, sew (a little bit), and am a master with a glue gun.
  4. When my oldest was 2 he dropped the F-bomb at the hospital when a nurse was drawing blood from him. I blamed Nana but know I was mostly partly to blame. I curse like a sailor.
  5. I too am addicted to the internet – twitter, Facebook, which also means I’m addicted to my iPhone. Luckily Hubs understands.
  6. My husband does most of the laundry here. I make up for it by working on the cars and other “manly” stuff around the house.
  7. I appear to most as confident and secure, but really the opposite is true.  I am often loud and boisterous to mask my own insecurities.  I CRAVE the approval of others but am working on this.  It’s a process. (but while you are here, go ahead and subscribe to my RSS Feed,  ‘Like’ me on Facebook and follow me on twitter so I’ll know you like me  m’kay?)
