Ladies and Gentlemen

I GOT AN AWARD!! I don't remember the last time I got an was a long time ago, that's for sure. So thank you to STEF for the Versatile Blogger Award! I feel so honored that you actually stop in a read my blog! I really enjoy reading all about your crazy life!

So I'm supposed to tell you 7 facts about myself and then pass the award on to 15 other blogs that I have recently discovered.

Well, I'm new at this, so I will give you seven very random facts, but I can only pass the award to a handful of people.....cause that's all I know right now!

OK, here are the rules of this bloggy award:
1. Thank the person who gave you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Pass the award on to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic.
4. Contact the bloggers you've picked at let them know about the award.

1. I love to sing along with the radio. I have the uncanny ability to hear a song once and remember most of the words - it drives my husband crazy because he can't even remember the words to the National Anthem. I especially love Billy Joel and when one of his songs comes on the radio, I turn it up as loud as I can stand and then try to out-sing him.

2. I love to read. I sometimes have 2 or 3 books going at the same time. There is usually one at my mom's house, one in my bedroom and one in the bathroom. I rarely get them confused, but sometimes I have to go back a chapter to remember where I left off.

3. I have always wanted to have a monkey for a pet. I had a child instead. Pretty much the same thing.

4. I don't like to go places by myself. Except the grocery store. I really like the grocery store.

5. There is a part of me that truly believes I could be a famous singer/songwriter. If only I knew someone in the biz....

6. I wear grandma underwear, and I'm not ashamed of it. It started when I was pregnant and I'm not gonna stop.

7. I have moved 15 times in 14 years. Some of them have been for 3-4 months at a time, but the longest was only 2 years. I would REALLY like to say that we are putting down some roots this time, but who am I kidding? I married a gypsy.

Now, to bestow this award on some fellow bloggers:

Nana Diana Takes A Break (which happens to be my mom's blog) :)

And last but not least

Mommy of a Monster (but I think you have already gotten this award, so you don't have to do it again!!) :)

These are all some wonderful blogs and I truly enjoy reading each and every one of them! Thanks to all for stopping by my blog!

Click here for the award!!


  1. Congrats!! Very exciting! Hope you like the chicken tostada- let me know what you think!

  2. THANK YOU for the award! You are too kind ;)

    I can't read more than one book at a time. I just can't keep track!

    I don't like going anywhere by myself, either. I've never even been to a movie by myself.

    Granny panties rock! I loved them when I was pregnant, but went back to thongs afterwards. I would wear the granny panties if my hubby didn't make fun of me :)

    I'll give you a shout out on my next post for the award, I love your blog and know there are others out there that would, too!

  3. Okay, so, I hate grocery shopping. So you must have stolen all the grocery lovin' genes in another life. I think that you should do a video blog and sing us one of your songs, and lastly, wedgy underwear is totally overrated. Sometimes, grandma DOES know best!!

  4. Thanks for the award! I love your blog too by the way! :) Oh mindy..i miss your singing voice! :) I loved when you used to sing to the radio. Hey, speaking of singing..remember our "singing" we did in China? LOL! Can't think of the song right now but it was by tracy chapman. You, Amber and I sang for those guys we met at the hotel...oh the memories! Love ya Mindy! :)

  5. Okay- I hate to brag but Mimi (If She Can Figure It Out) has the most amazing voice! What she DIDN'T tell you is that she got a voice scholarship when she graduated- She won local contests and is not only a talented singer but an even more amazing song writer. There-said that-HA!

    Okay-I see I got one of these award do I do with it? lol Copy and paste it to my blog & then write? I can't read your rules because the words blend into the blog background color-sorry to say.

    Old lady underwear? Even I don't wear them:>0
