The Adorable Blog Award!

 Yay! My first blog award 8) ... Thanks so much to Hilary over at The Big Weight for giving me this totally awesome award 8) - She is such a sweatheart so if you haven't checked out her blog - do so now! She is on a mission just like me and I can't wait to see her succeed in all of her goals!

So here we go ...

The Rules:
  • Thank the person who gave you the award with a link to their blog. 
  • Tell us 10 things about yourself.
  • Nominate other bloggers and let them know about the award.
10 Things About Me:
1. I love being a mom more than anything else in my life - it's what I was born to do.
2. I have a phobia of bandaids - they are disgusting and if one touches me I will gag, if my kids get hurt I send them to daddy to get a bandaid - don't know where this came from but I just don't like those things. I'm weird!
3. I also do not like gum - I can barely say the word without gagging - this has been for as long as I can remember, never chewed, never wanted to chew it, would NEVER kiss a guy chewing it ... told you I was weird!
4. I met my husband on the internet - we did go to the same high school but never talked then.
5. I'm a middle child, I have an older brother and an younger brother - I am close to both and love being the only girl 8)
6. I hate my job with a passion - I am a secretary and its beyond boring - I would love to do something else but don't really have the time for school and work while trying to raise kids.
7. I secretly love Eminem and love to shake my groove thang to ganster rap when no one is looking - but take me out and give me a few drinks and I will shake it while people ARE looking ... ha!
8. I am addicted to diet coke - seriously it's bad. I've tried several times to stop drinking it - if there were a diet coke addicts group - I would consider joining. If there were a patch - I would consider wearing it. Seriously you have no idea!
9. I hate that I have had to deal with my weight all my life and I am so ready to get it off once and for all and never have to deal with it again.
10. I once had my belly button pierced but it got infected so I took it out - it was cool while it lasted though 8).
