Oh, my Grace, my sister-from-another-mister, my G-Unit. Thank you so, so much for nominating me for these awards! I love them and have so much fun doing them. You, my friend, are such a wonderful person and I’m glad we’re friends! Please go over and check out Planting Beans – you’re sure to love the blog and the blogger!
THE VERSATILE BLOGGER
For more information about the The Versatile Blogger Award be sure to check out their blog.
These are the rules when you are nominated:
1. Post the award on your blog
2. Thank the person who nominated you
3. Share seven facts about yourself
4. Nominate 15 blogs
5. List the nominees and let them know
Seven facts, huh….
A) I have my own crafting business and I make polymer clay ornaments. I am thinking of branching out and adding a whole other side to the business that may include baby related items like blankets, bibs, and headbands.
B) I love nail polish! I own far too many bottles, most of them being pink. However, since becoming pregnant, my nails seem to be a little more soft and so I have to keep them short, which does not make my fingers look long and skinny like I’d like.
C) I hate flying. When my husband booked a trip to Iceland to cheer me up/celebrate my impending 30th birthday last year, I was so happy, but devastated that we’d have to fly for 5 hours.
D) I love playing board games and card games with friends or even with just Cody. My favorites include Yahtzee, Skip Bo, and Cards Against Humanity (though I’m not proud to admit the last one).
E) I have a recurring dream where there is a hair on my eyeball and when I go to pull it out, it slices my eye.
F) I once pulled a 6’2″, 200+lbs man out of a picnic table, by myself, because he was having a seizure. That man was my brother and I was only able to do it because I was completely terrified that he was going to get hurt if I didn’t get him on the ground and onto his side ASAP. My husband was with me and didn’t even know what was happening until my brother and I were both on the ground and I was screaming to Cody to call an ambulance.
G) I have a goal to swim in all of the Great Lakes. The only two remaining are Lake Superior and Lake Michigan. After, I will move on to the Oceans…. maybe.
That list was hard to generate…

The Almost Mom

THE REAL NEAT BLOG

The Questions and My Answers:
1.If you won the lottery who would you tell if anyone?
I would probably tell my parents, since I’d like to buy them their Winnebago. Other than that, I’d probably keep it a secret so I could actually donate money to charities, rather than my greedy brothers, haha.
2.Which fictional character can you most relate too?
From a book, maybe Siddalee from Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. From TV, maybe Naomi from the new 90210 – only because I have that type of sass, sometimes.
3.What’s your guilty pleasure?
Food: Dill Pickle chips with Dill Pickle dip. Media: Pinterest
4.Who was your favorite band in high school?
Oh boy…. I loved Rancid for a while. Before that, I had my BSB/Spice Girl stages.
5.You’re moving to a different country and never coming back. You can take three living people/animals and three of your belongings with you. Who and what do you take?
Well, I am going to pretend that this happens tomorrow and I have yet to birth my two princesses. I would take my husband and two cats. My babies would join us later 😉 As for the possessions: I think I would bring my all of my photos, my diary, and my passport in case I wanted to come back.
6.How did you celebrate your last birthday?
My birthday was last month, actually! We had some friends come over and then we all went out to dinner. My husband bought me 1 gift every day for a week, which was thoughtful and fun!
7.What is something that people might not know about you?
People probably do not know how shy I am. I can put up a good front, but meeting new people gives me some serious anxiety and I always feel really awkward. I much prefer to be at home with my husband rather than at a group gathering. Also, when it comes to Fight or Flight – I always choose fight. Also, my ass is numb from sitting here and typing this for so long.
