An Award and 7 Hairy Men... I mean 7 Random Facts


I had an extremely long day at work!  But I was excited to see that when I got home I got a wonderful award from Christine Murray!  Thank  you so much!  It definitely made my day!

Ok, here are the rules for this award: 

1. Thank and link to the person who nominated you.
2. Share seven random facts about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 5 new-found blogging buddies.
4. Contact the winners to congratulate them.

Random Facts -

1.  I am the second oldest of five children, with ages ranging from 24, 22 (that's me!), 18, 7 and 4.  The little two are adopted; my parents are foster parents.  Alyson, who is 7 came to live with us when she was 15 months old and Hunter was six days old.

2.  I am deathly afraid of spiders and all other sorts of bugs.  In order to get courage to kill them, I like to throw shoes until I hit them while listening to "Goodbye Earl" from the Dixie Chicks.

3.  My absolute favorite movie series is "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy and because of that, I have an unquenchable desire to visit New Zealand someday and see where they filmed such an amazing movie!  I also love playing Lord of the Rings Trivial Pursuit with my best friend Molly.

4.  My favorite holiday is Halloween, I love getting dressed up and eating candy-corn while watching "Hocus Pocus".

5.  Once, while coming home from a jazz choir contest, I depantsed myself.  I was sitting on the floor the bus and didn't realize that my shirt was under my foot and stood up.  Luckily it was dark and I don't think anyone saw my silk white slip.  Embarrassing!

6.  When I'm sad, I like sitting in the dark in my living room and watching the end of "A Little Princess" so I have a reason to cry.

7.  I once had a dream that I married Viggo Mortensen... yummy. :)

So, the people I'm passing the award onto are....

1.  Alison
2.  Danielle
3.  Jessica
4.  Kathryn
5.  Catherine

Hope you are all having a great day!  I have one more final tomorrow and it's summer! :)

  2. Wow! You have adopted siblings too? With a big age gap? I'm the only person I know like that. I'm feeling kinship here, Krista :)

  3. Thank you so much, Krista! That means so much, coming from such a stylish blogger!

  4. I am deathly afraid of spiders too. Never tried squashing them to "Goodbye Earl", though...good idea!
