The beautiful and talented, Mrs. Erika Kind, nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award some time ago, and with the crazy hours I’ve been putting in at work, prepping for our unforgettable Thanksgiving, and getting a head start on Christmas, my brain has been in overload, and I have had a difficult time coming up with 7 interesting facts about myself. I’ve been a “mom” for so long, that a lot of “ME” has fallen by the way side. I hope that the facts that I have managed to conjure up don’t bore you to tears.

7 Facts About Me:
Fact 1: Let’s being by saying that I am NOT a minivan kind of mom! But, with a family of my size, which is continuing to get larger, family trips are becoming troublesome in our car! For the past 12 years or so, my “dream car” has been a Honda Pilot. The 3 row seating would REALLY come in handy, and it’s small enough and sporty enough to be cute AND save on gas. Perhaps one day soon…
Fact 2: I have been collecting stickers for as long as I can remember, and even started my own “sticker club” in grade school. Our objective was to trade stickers and to come up with the most impressive collection. I still have my first sticker albums tucked safely away. Remember the ones that you could buy at your local Hallmark stores? I always begged my parents for more of the sticker sheets, and I recall getting quite a few “no’s” as answers.
Fact 3: As much as the desire has been there, life has never blessed me the opportunity to own my own home. For 13 ½ years, I very patiently waited, and finally found myself in the position a few years ago to rent a house. I’m hoping that my next move will involve buying property. Here’s hoping!
Fact 4: I detest shopping; I mean with a passion! BUT, throw me in a craft or book store, and you may as well go on home. Time loses ALL meaning, and I take my sweet time roaming each aisle, looking for the absolute best deals/finds.
Fact 5: Have you ever paid attention to all of those cheesy television commercials for jewelry stores? How giddy those little girls get when hubby man surprises them with a new piece of jewelry? Not me. I think it’s an absolute waste of money! I have a few nice pieces, but prefer my Boho fashion jewelry any day. If hubby dropped that kind of money on a dinky piece of jewelry, I’d be compelled to smack him upside the head and ask him what the hell he was thinking. But, that’s just me.
Fact 6: Ok so, whether you want to admit it or not, we all have a same sex crush. Mine are Drew Barrymore and Kate Hudson. I have always loved Drew’s cute little hippie chic persona, and Kate is more of a sophisticated hippie chic. She inherited her mama’s (Goldie Hawn) spunky nature, and she works it. I love these girls!!!
Fact 7: One of my favorite stories from childhood can be found in, The Sneetches and Other Stories by good ole’ Dr. Seuss. The story is called, “What was I scared of?” I absolutely loved it! If you’ve never read it to the kiddos, you should definitely head to your local library; I’m sure they have a copy. Everyone should read it at least once in their life.
Erika, I thank you SO very much for this amazing award, and I hope that you can forgive me for taking so long to accept it. I am truly honored that you passed this torch on to me. Again, thank you!
