7 things about me....

Ok, so I received this award from Robin at With this award I am supposed to list 7 things about me that (depending on who you are) you might not know.

I'm also supposed to select 15 other blogs to pass it along to. Believe it or not, I found both of these very difficult to do. For starters, I spend so much time devoted to making sure my children are healthy, happy, well adjusted kids that I don't really spend anytime thinking about me. As for narrowing down my list of blogs to a mere 15 to pass this award to???

WOW- I'm so inspired by the blogs I follow. Each one of them affect me daily. Whether it's striving to be a better mother, sharing in their life struggles, diving in to those D.I.Y projects or listening to what they have to say about God. They stir something inside of me and that's the reason I follow them. I'm not one of those who follows you just to follow you in the hopes that more traffic will come my way. I follow because I care about what you have to share. So I think I might just pass on that portion of the award. Sorry Robin, I hope your ok with that. Who knows- maybe I'll start my own award and give it to each and every one of you.

Alright, here goes the 7....

1) I HATE change!

No not coins, I'm talking about the kind of change that sometimes happens and you have no control over it. The kind that makes things different. Yes, sometimes it's a good different but I still take entirely to long to warm up to it.

2) My dream job would be a Set Decorator
I can't even imagine how much fun I would have finding treasures to go along with what I felt the character would own.

3) I'm that lady.

You know the one that will talk to you while waiting in line. Yep- that's me!

4) I LOVE to travel but I have so much anxiety when it comes to packing.
My husband actually has to talk me through it.

5) I never remember names but I NEVER ever forget a face.

Especially when it comes to actors. It baffles my husband that I can recall who someone is, even if we haven't seen them act since they were a child.

6) Trying to list 7 things about myself has sparked an interest in more self exploration.

7) 15 years ago while at work, a co-worker and I entered into a bet. I don't remember what the bet was but I do remember that the loser had to ask the "new guy" out on a date. I lost the bet.

The "new guy" was my husband. Who knew losing a bet in my 20's would be the best thing that ever happened to me.

Well there you have it. 7 things you probably didn't know about me. Hope you enjoyed!

You and your guy make a handsome couple. I am betting you did not try too hard to win that bet... I'm that woman too, the one in line that will talk to strangers. Not long ago, I was buying some lamps at TJ maxx for a client that only needed the shades. I sold the lamps in Gave that woman a deal let me tell you... said...

Wow, love the photos! I am so happy that you lost that bet. as long as you!

I kind of lost a bet the day I met my husband too. He asked me out and being the young silly girl I was at the time...asked to see his drivers license to see if he was lying about his age (he was so much older, 13 years to be exact, but did not look it to me).

He said fine as long as I would go out with him the next day if he wasn't lying about his!

I haven't been able to get rid of him!!!

Thanks for sharing Angie, Robin said...

By the way my husband is of course one of the best things that has ever happen to me, my angel. I am so glad he never got rid! So far so good...

Yours in Health, Robin
