Versatile Blogger Award

I got an award!  Thanks to lostintranslation for awarding me with it!  You should definitely go check out her blog that outlines her struggles to have a 2nd child through IVF.

With blog awards come rules, so here they are:
A) Grab the award: Done!
B) Link back to the person who gave it to you: Done!
C) Share 10 things about yourself: (You're getting 14, consider yourself blessed!)

1. I owned a coffee shop and I hate coffee.
2. When I was in high school, I tried to see how many boyfriends I could have at the same time.
3. I want to learn to play the violin and go to Hawaii before I die. I have also thought I may open my own dancing studio.
4. I used to play the clarinet, flute, and piano. I can still play the piano a little.                    
5. I love to garden. I feel like it's the project God and I work on together every summer.
6. I did all my homework and got straight A's (I was obsessed) till I met Hubby in college. I returned to the straight A obsession in grad school.
7. I am like a small child when I visit the zoo or anywhere else with animals. I squeal and run from exhibit to exhibit and I don't even know I'm doing it.
8. I'm 5'2".  Most of the time, I feel like a really small person trapped in a big person's world. Pants that are labeled "short" or "petite" are still too long for me. My feet don't touch the floor if I sit all the way to the back of couches or chairs. I have to put my seat dangerously close to the steering wheel in my car in order to be able to put the clutch all the way down.
9. I have two tattoos--one on the bottom of each of my feet. They are of Icthus, the Christ fish symbol. They are a reminder that I walk with God--or at least I try to.
10. I have a dog, Laney, and two cats, Moose and Delilah. I didn't know that I was a cat person till I got the dog.
11. I love snow says--especially the kind where there's like a foot or more so you know you have to stay home and the whole town is shut down. I'll get up in the middle of the night to see if it's started snowing yet. I even do a little snow dance if it has.
12. I may go after a Doctorate--Or I may get my principal and superintendent licensure.
13. I love to sing. I worry too much about what others think of it, though.
14. I used to want to be an OB/GYN. I had a baby die in my arms of SIDS right before I was ready to go to college and I changed my mind. I couldn't handle that as part of my daily life.

    E) let them know you awarded them: Done!


    1. I love that it took owning a dog to know you were a cat person :)
