7 things about me...hmmm... ok, here it goes:
1. i'm clumsy, very clumsy, like fall on my butt-phantom bruises-bump my head just trying to get out of the car clumsy. i don't know how i've survived this long.
2. between B and myself, we have 54 nieces and nephews. with all those grandkids, you'd think there wouldn't be any pressure on us, but i'm not naming any names! ahhhhh-father-in-law-chooo!
3. i am a graphic designer & photographer. i also do artwork on the side and go to night school. i think it may have stemmed from my maternal need to create. (deep stuff, right? ha ha!)
4. i've had baby names picked out since i was 16. one of my sisters used the boy name that was at the top of the list. i guess my parents will just have to deal with the fact that two of their grandsons have the exact same name.
5. i'm training for a half marathon. i've never run one before, but it's on my life list and i thought now was as good a time as any to do it. now, if i can just run it without falling down...
6. i love chocolate, but hate chocolate ice cream! whoever came up with that flavor must have been missing a few taste buds, because they don't taste at all alike.
7. i am completely unorganized and messy. my excuse to B is that i'm an artist and that's just how artists live. his response to that is, then you can live in the closet under the stairs. who does he think i am? harry potter?
i was going to nominate several blogs to also receive this award, but it seems as though someone else beat me to it, so i will just have to second their nominations and award it to everyone else on my blog list that hasn't already received it. can't you just feel the love?!?
