  1. I have three handsome sons and two beautiful step daughters, all available! {correction: 2 of the 3 sons are available} :)
  2. Once I wanted to stop saying sh#t and asked God to help me only to step out of my car into, yes, a pile of dog doodoo.
  3. For 5 years I drove on the wrong side of the road more than the right side (I promise, I wasn't drinking).
  4. I sold all my stuff except what I could fit in my Corolla and moved from Seattle to Minneapolis. For the weather. :)
  5. Once in a very large business meeting with some very important people, I was, much to my surprise, asked a question for which I was not prepared...and just said nothing. Nothing. For 45 seconds. Turned very red.
  6. I am afraid of anything that flies and stings, heights and being like everyone else. And, being asked questions I'm not prepared to answer in front of important people. :)
  7. My husband and I live in 620 square feet and still love each other. :)
Thanks again to Gillian over at Finding My Weigh for these awards! Check out her blog, too, she's so great!



    1. Wow, really? Thanks! I really appreciate it. That was a true bright spot in my day!

    2. Thanks Cheryl! Aw...made my day too! And I totally LOL'd about #2...totally like God to have a sense of humor like that. And #5...oh, I could just feel the internal turmoil you must've had going on at that moment!

      Thanks so much! I'll get to planning my response post!

    3. Thanks so much! You're too sweet! I'm happy to have discovered you. Looking forward to reading more and getting to know you better.

    4. Thank you for the awards, these made me smile this morning!

    5. Cheryl! A sh#t occasionally comes out of my mouth as well. Were not all perfect! Awesome blog! Keep up the great work!

    6. Thank you, Cheryl for your very informative comment. I'd actually started doing the 5-6 small meals that I prepack, and they are about 250 each, so I am constantly fueling myself, and not eating out of emotion. Thank you for validating me.

    7. Thank you so much!!!! You are awesome! You deserve to win it too! Nice...Ok, so it has been many days since I have been online! I am looking forward to catching up. Thanks again!
