An Award!

The very sweet Jan Markley has honored me with the Kreativ Blogger Award and just made my day for the rest of the week :) Thank you so much Jan!!

I'm not sure I can think of 7 more interesting things about me, but I'll give it a shot. :D

The rules are:

Here are the rules for the award:

1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they have been nominated.

Okay, 7 interesting things.....

1. I'm a total insomniac and generally toss and turn for an hour or more no matter what time I go to bed.

2. My husband is 10 years older than me and since I'm the oldest in my family and he is the youngest, my mother in law is the same age as my grandmother, my oldest brother in law is a year older than my father, many of my husband's nieces and nephews are my age or older, and our children are all the same age.

3. I spent my first year of college in Hawaii and would cut off a limb to live there again...well, maybe not a limb, but certainly a nail or a few inches of hair :D

4. I was so painfully shy until my mid-20s, that I wouldn't even go to pump gas by myself, but would take one of my siblings with me or bribe someone to do it for me (I've gotten over that...mostly) :D

5. I've lived in 6 different states but have never left the country

6. My daughter was due exactly 2 years from the date my son was born, but ended up being born 2 months early

7. I just bought a violin because I've always wanted to I'm going to see if I can teach myself :D

And now for my 7 no particular order :)

1. Lee Verday
2. K.M. Weiland
3. Dell Girl
4. Annie Louden
5. Sandra
6. Suzanne
7. Stephanie Thornton

Thanks again Jan!!

Congrats on your award.

Yeah, Hawaii gets in your system and won't let go. I grew up in Laie and it makes me crazy I haven't been able to take my kids there yet. One of these days

Don, I lived in Laie when I was there! I was going to school there, and worked at the Polynesian Cultural Center. I really miss it there :)

Congrats on the award. My hubby spent one summer in Hawaii eons again. As a result, he looked the laid back lifestyle and remained on Hawaii time. Which means he never arrived anywhere on time again. We plan on going one of these years when we have a couple weeks to spare.

So, have you learned to play the violin yet? :)
