Our Five Ring Circus: Awards

Saturday, December 5, 2009


I received three blog awards in November from three very awesome bloggers.

Candice from Wolf's on Safari and Katrina from Sevin Family gave me the Heartfelt Blogger Award. Thank you both for passing this award on to me!

Here are the rules:
Display the award logo. Nominate up to 9 blogs that make you feel comfy or warm inside. Link to your nominees. Let them know they have been nominated by commenting. Link to the person from whom you received the award.

I am passing the award on to:
Kimmy at The Courageous O'Connor's
Elizabeth at Small Town Blessings
Mama4Real at I'm a Real Life Mom
Erica at Scottsville
Ali at The Blessed Country Mom
Kmama at The Daily Dribbles
Ginger at The Neff Family
Sara at Domestically Challenged

Ginger from The Neff Family gave me this award. Thank you, Ginger!

Rules are to post ten interesting facts about yourself and then tag seven blogging friends!

I hope I haven't shared these yet!

1. I became a vegetarian at the age of 8, and remained a vegetarian until after I turned 20. Grant convinced me to try meat again. I still don't like it, and only eat a few bites every so often.

2. I am extremely fertile. Dylan was an oops baby. My birth control pill failed, due to me throwing up for two days. Lexie was conceived with one try.

3. I am now completely addicted to crossword puzzles. I have several tucked into my purse at all times.

4. I was a high honor student all through high school, and received several scholarships. I had a change of heart right before I was going to leave for college, and never continued my education. Nobody can believe I threw that away, but I can't regret it. If I had gone, I would have never met Grant, and I wouldn't have my two, amazing children!

5. I swear. I am getting better at controlling my language in front of the kids, but every so often I slip. It's especially bad when I'm driving, because my biggest pet peeve is bad drivers!

6. I very rarely drink. I can't even think of the last time I had alcohol!

7. I have a great, long term memory. I can look at anything we own (toys, clothes, decorations) and remember exactly where I bought it, or who bought it. Short term memory? Not so much!

8. I faint at the sight of blood or a bad injury. Both times Dylan got hurt badly enough to require staples/stitches, I passed out. I am able to hold it together enough to help my child then head to the hospital, but it always happens.

9. I love babies. My ideal number of kids would be 4, but I think the most I will have is 3. I was blessed with good babies who slept through the night almost immediately!

10. I hide a stash of treats in my closet. I don't want my kids and husband to steal them all! ;) Every so often, I will share my goodies.

I'm going to pass on the award to:
Kelly at Two Kids, A minivan, and a lot of love
Kimber at A Day in the Life of a Girl Named Kimber
Candice at Wolf's on Safari
Erin at It's All About Alex
Katrina at Sevin Family
Brittany at Social Butterfly
Jenny at Beyond Our Wildest Dreams
