What it's all about...

I'm a 39 year old wife, mom, daughter, sister, aunt & friend. That should tell you who I'll be writing about most of the time.

I'm Versatile!

This is so cool. Two of my very favorite bloggers have nominated me as a Versatile Blogger. The fact that I was nominated the second time is purely due to my laziness at posting about the first, but I am honored nonetheless. Thank you so much Stacy and CJ!! The only downside is that now I can't nominate them back, but I would in a second if I could!

So what does this mean?

Here are the rules:
1.) Add the Versatile Award graphic on your blog post. (See above)

2.) Thank the Blogger who nominated you. (Done x2!)

3.) Share seven random things about yourself. (See below)

4.) Nominate fifteen fellow bloggers. (I love each and every one that I nominated. I also LOVE the ones that nominated me. Thank you again!)

5.) Inform bloggers of their nomination. (I intend to!)

Seven random facts:
1.) I love folding shirts. I worked at a clothing store for awhile and was obsessed with using the shirt folding board. I don't have one at home, but I get them pretty straight. I've been known to pull my kids shirts out of their dressers and refold them to my satisfaction.

2.) My 20 year high school reunion and my niece's high school graduation are both this year. I think that's kind of cool.

3.) When I eat chips, I prefer to put them on something as opposed to eating them out of the bag. This is for two reasons: 1. I don't like the salt/oil from the bag on the back of my hand and 2. I like to eat chips by size- broken ones first, smallest intact chips next and the largest ones last.

4.) I really love Facebook. Haven't really minded the changes they've made and this Timeline thing isn't really that big of a deal. As long as I can still see what my friends are doing and keep in touch with them, it doesn't matter to me. I love it. :)

5.) I really liked my time in high school. I know that puts me in the minority, but it was a great time for me.

6.) If I hadn't always seen myself with kids, I think I would have enjoyed being a flight attendent. I love flying and I'd love to be able to travel to different cities. Plus, you get perks for personal travel too.

7.) Shell and I both miss each other when we're apart. We tell each other "I love you" a million times a day. We spoon in bed and save tv shows and movies to watch until we can watch together. We've been together almost 20 years. From what I see all too often, I think that this is not typical. I'm okay with that. :)

Nominate fifteen fellow bloggers:

2.) Keri at Back Forty

3.) Jessie at Love+Love=Marriage

5.) Laurie at Creating A Miracle

5.) Ashleigh at 2moms2dogs2babies

6.) Heidi at Thinking Miracles

7.) Judy at It's Just Life

8.) Laura at 2 Lasses and a Baby

10.) Jennifer at Arcane Matters

11.) Beth at Endless Love

14.) Natalie at Midlife Natalie

15.) Roxy at Uncommon Curiosity

Hey, you know you can MAKE one of those t-shirt folding boards for about six bucks, right??

Thanks! I am honoured :)

Stacy said...

Yay!! :)
I am EXACTLY the same way about chips!! I can't stand the greasy feeling on the back of my hand!! I'm so glad I'm not alone in this.

I haven't been by lately-- a lot to catch up on! :) Glad to see you're blogging again-- this was always one of my favorite blogs!

Thanks for the nomination-- I finally got around to updating the blog. Looking forward to catching up on everything you've had going on, too. I feel like an online slacker. :)

I just came by to catch up on your blog today. I see a lot has happened to you this year. I'm sorry for your loss and hope that having a fuller house works out well for everyone. Thanks for the tag, too.

What a great post. I love folding laundry - not shirts particularly, all clothes. It appeals to a sense of order that I lack in every other aspect of my life. I also love your OCD chip-eating method. As for liking high school - so you're the one? :)
