Blogger Award

Yeah! My first blogger award! So exciting! Thank you to my friend Tawny. In honor of receiving this award I must reveal 7 random things about me. Those of you reading this will probably know some, but maybe not all of these things.
I am horrible at this, and have put it off, but finally here goes!

1.) I really have never liked dogs that much, and wasn't the biggest fan of getting one, yet completely fell in love with our boxer Ellie. I now love the breed and don't even know how I could choose a different breed in the future. EVERYONE knows that tonight I had to give her up. She is the most wonderful dog, yet is in such a sad predicament. Living most of her life in a crate, is not the right way to go. We had to make the best decision for our family, which will be one person bigger very soon. I will get to get updates on her because she is going to be now with a new family that is a friend of mine who I work with. I know it is all for the better, but ARGH! Just so hard to go through. ( especially pregnant!)

2.) Ugh these have to be random right? I feel like I am such an open book all I want to say are things that everyone already knows and makes fun of me for...like OCD, anxiety woman, anal, worry wart, clean freak, hypochondriac things....its so hard! Hmm maybe I will just leave this one as #2. Hehe

3.) I secretly have the BIGGEST desire to run. I am so envious of a lot of my friends who have been doing 5ks, half marathons, full marathons. I don't think I have it in me AT ALL, but I would LOVE to be able to run at least a 5k some point in life. Maybe one day.....

4.) I try to cook at least 1-2 new meals a week, to add to my dinner making ability list and make it easier to meal plan. The ones I did this week were totally rockin! My new favorite website is on the right side of my blog under my favorites...entitled Weight Watcher Recipes. I don't follow it exactly because we aren't on weight watchers, but she has some great and easy ideas!

5.) It is another goal of mine to pray more. I get into the habit of praying and doing it ALL THE TIME, or forgetting and NEVER doing it. It needs to be constant, and needs not to stop. I have started again by doing it with Lucy, and making that a habit, and now she asks for it every night so it is a wonderful reminder and a great habit to start with her.

6.) I am never content. I know that most of us aren't, but for me I feel like it impairs my everyday life. ( my hubby would agree) I cannot just sit and watch tv or read or grade papers and not feel guilty. I ALWAYS feel like I should be doing laundry, dusting, vacuuming, some sort of cleaning or household chore because I always feel like my house is a pig sty. That may sound cliche, but its like a sick feeling I always have and its not good. It makes me NEVER want to have people over, and that needs to stop because I will regret it later in life!

7.) On a positive note, hehe, I am very grateful. I have such wonderful friends. Like every single one that I am super close with lives more than 30 miles away, but that really doesn't matter. I feel very lucky to have such wonderful friendships through blogging, ( who would have thought!), through working ( teaching ), from college, and even from middle school still! ( Crystalina!) I am so blessed ( I know that sounds cliche too but get over it) to have such wonderful examples in my life and woman I can look up to and call WHENEVER. I think about this a lot! Aww this is making me weepy....I am ever so grateful for my best friend who I have to mention....my husband. He is such a trooper, and constantly gives me just what I need. Whether its a firm kick in the butt, or to say " GO SHOPPING HONEY!!", even sleeping downstairs to listen to the monitor and get Lucy if she cries in the middle of the night just so I can sleep....
he does it all, and never complains. I love him!

Now I have to give this award to some fellow bloggers whom I think their blogs deserve this award. So ......drumroll please.....and I am not sure if they have received this award from someone else, I apologize in advance...

Thank you so much for the blog award nomination. That is really cool. I like the new picture of the three of you. It is very cute. The new look you gave to your blog is refreshing. Hope Lucy is feeling better soon.

Sherman thank you for the award. I will get on writing my list of random things. I don't think it will be too hard as most of my blog is random stuff :-)
