Versatile Blogger Award

One of my bloggy friends, Wonder Woman over at Watering Faith's Seed gave me this award, and I feel so special! I've never gotten a blog award before, and I've always wondered what it would take to get one, LOL. So big thanks to her!

Here's how it works:

Ten Things About Me

1. My husband and I met online. We moved in together after about 3 months of dating because we "knew" we'd found the right person (and we worked opposite shifts and it made it hard to see each other otherwise). We were engaged in 11 months, and married 8 months later.

2. I can't stand cauliflower, and brussel sprouts.

3. Even though I love strawberries, they make my stomach hurt, so I try not to eat them too often.

4. I can't stand the taste of beer, but I like some wines.

5. I dread the day when my son is old enough that he doesn't want to smother me in kisses and cuddle with me anymore.

6. My mom says I used to be really sweet as a kid and now I'm more "hard". I tolerate alot less than I used to, but the sweet person is still inside me, the hard shell is more there to protect me. The people who know me well know this best.

7. One of my worst qualities that I continue to work on is that I judge people before I get to know them sometimes. I've made observations about people I work with especially and judged them, only to find out later that I actually really like these people.

8. I used to just ignore mean or rude people, but lately I find myself feeling the need to say something to put them back in their place which can be really dangerous, so I'm working on toning that down.

9. I knew our son was going to be a boy from about 8 weeks into my pregnancy. Just had "a feeling".

10. I was worried about what I would do with a boy when we found out we were definitely pregnant with a boy. I mean, I'm a girl, I can do all the girly things, but what do you do with a boy (we didn't have many on my side of the family)? I found out you just go along with whatever they want to do, and yes, the "boy" things really are ingrained and a nature thing-we kept toys relatively gender neutral but he gravitated towards trains, cars, and trucks, and I found this to be amazing.
