Another Blog Award

I can't believe I received another blog award. Courtney gave me the Beautiful Blogger Award. Thanks, Courtney!

Here are the rules for the award:

~Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog.

~Copy the award and paste it to your blog.

~Tell us 7 interesting facts about yourself.

~Nominate 7 bloggers that you love and link to their blog.

I'm not sure I can come up with seven more things about myself, but I will try to give you a few.

1. I'll start with something somewhat personal. I had a breast reduction 7 years ago. I was a DDD and believe me it wasn't pretty. I was much thinner than I am now too so it was CRAZY!! I had terrible back pain, poor posture and my bra straps just dug into my shoulders all the time. I was miserable! I had enough and went to a plastic surgeon and scheduled the surgery and had those babies taken care of. 1.5 pounds was removed from each breast. I told you they were big! ha! It is one of the best things I have ever done for myself. It was worth the pain after the surgery!!

2. I am a gum chewing fool. I love gum. I chew it all the time. Even during the day when I am teaching, I chew gum. It's not allowed for the students, but I just can't help myself. I buy the big packs and go through them way too fast.

3. When I go to sleep, I must have a fan going. I started sleeping with a fan during college and have never seemed to get away from it. When we were first married, it would drive my husband crazy. Now he is used to it and will turn the fan on if I get into bed first and forget. I love him for that!

4. Friday, I got an i.Phone. I love it!! I don't know what I did without it. Ok...I know that is a bit extreme, but I truly do LOVE it. I'm excited about all the free apps I can download. So much fun! I downloaded one that is a sound machine...I am thinking I might like the sound of rain better than my fan. I'll keep you posted.

5. My 3.5 year old black lab is a mamma's boy. I had him before I got married and it was just the two of us so he was always with me. I took him running, on errands and all over. He would follow me around my house when he was a puppy and now that he's a big dog, he does the same thing. The thing that I love about him is I can be gone for 10 minutes or 10 doesn't matter...he's always sooooo happy to see me no matter how long it's been.

6. I have baby fine/thin hair. I hate it!! And I do mean HATE! I'm a natural blonde, but my hair is not full and beautiful. I have tried all sorts of products and nothing really does the trick. It is stick straight and blah. I don't think it helps that I have had a very hard time finding a stylist that I love since I've moved to Texas. I loved my stylist in Michigan. She was the best! If anyone has any tips or product suggestions, bring it on!

7. I'm a talker! It's true. I like to talk. Don't get me wrong, I am a good listener too, but I just am very outgoing and have no problem talking to complete strangers. I'm not shy around people I don't know so it makes it easy to talk to them.

Well, that was easier than I thought. Guess it comes from being a talker. :)

Now I would like to nominate the following amazing ladies:

Anne at The Makings of Baby Otsie

Sam at Little Dragon Fruit

Shellie from Salza Family

Jennifer at Blonde Ambition

Andrea at Life, Love & Pursuit of Our Fairytale

Melissa at Spending Time With You...

Mel at Pug Mama


Sam said...

Why, thank you, darlin! :)

And LOL!!!! I can't believe we share the fan fixation! I have started planning what I will do for white noise on trips because I just can't sleep without it! :)

Andrea said...


Thanks for the sweet of you!

Also, thank you for the encouragement and sweet words you left on the last post :)


Melissa said...

Thanks doll! How sweet! I am shocked! I have never gotten a award before! :)

I too have an addiction to fans so I am glad to know their are others out there like me!

Jennifer said...

Thank you sweetie!!!!

Katie said...

Hey, I just now caught up on my blog reading... I was so sad to read about the procedure not taking! Waiting on God's timing is soooo hard sometimes... I know when we were trying I didn't care what other people said to try and make me feel better but I do want to say this... if you have that desire in your heart to be a mom it will happen. Maybe not always the way we plan but it will happen!! Just look at this time as a bonding experience for you and Berry and cherish the time alone. I love sweet Emma but I look back at the 2+ years we spent trying and it really was a wonderful time in our mariage whe I have never felt closer. I love you and will be praying boldly on your behalf! :)

Stacey said...

Okay, okay, I KNOW you've just done two award posts, but I couldn't help myself. I just gave you one on my blog! :)

Hope you are having a good week, friend!

I found your blog through Stacey's blog. I hope it's okay that I continue to follow you! I love to find other Christian women going through infertility and love the support.

I found your blog through Andrea, and love it, I have super fine hair too and it always look just F.L.A.T. but I did find this good stuff at Drug Emporium, called Artec Texture Line Magnifier, I use it to do my hair kinda scruncy or just for good volume. I also really like Catwalk by TIGI root boost. Anyway, I'm in Texas too, and a transplant, though not from up north, just Louisiana!! Look forward to reading more of your blog!
