Thank you so much Jessica, I was so surprised and excited! You are so sweet, and you have a great blog! Take a minute and check out her lovely blog.
Jessica mentioned how great it is to be recognized and know that people are reading and enjoying your blog. Even though I never created this blog to "gain" readers and make it big, it was for family. But it has turned into so much more, and I want to thank all of you, who read, leave words of advice or encouragement, and follow our story. It means a lot to me. Much love to all my readers!
As a recipient of this award I have to share 7 things about myself:
1. I always have to leave a bite of food when I am eating. I don't know why but I just don't eat the last bite. For example if it's pizza, I don't eat the crust, or the end of a sandwich.
2. I went to school for 1 year for elementary education. At the beginning of my second year I decided to switch to nursing. Then after the first semester of my second year of college I left to have Timothy and haven't been able to go back yet. I am not sure if and when I will be able to go back to school.
3. I have some kind of obsession with pens. ALL kinds of pens, I LOVE finding fun pens. This was worse when I was in school and working because I used them more. But deep down I am "old fashioned" and prefer to write things down and use a pen and paper!
4. Tim and I met online through AIM messenger when I was a Freshman and he was a Sophomore in high school. It was a coincidence that we went to the same high school. In October we will have been together for 10 years.
5. All three of our kids were not planned pregnancies and I was on birth control with all three. The boys I was on the pill((probably not taken 100% effectively), and Taylor I had the Mirena IUD in. I have the Mirena again this time.
6. I LOVE taking pictures, even though I am in NO WAY that great at it. I would LOVE to get a new DSLR camera!
7. I am a stay at home mom, and more times than not I really enjoy being home with my kids. BUT there are days that I long for a job and to get out.
