I was thrilled and honored to be awarded the Stylish Blogger Award from the talented bloggers over at one of my fave sites, Significantly Simple.
Thank you, Laila and Heather.
Now the rules are to share seven things about me and to award 15 other bloggers (this involved lots of copying, pasting, linking, cursing…but it was all worth it!)
7 Things About Me:
1)My two main addictions are chocolate and coffee. Sometimes separate, sometimes together. My doctor keeps insisting I cut out both, but what does she know? Apparently she doesn’t realize that I have to consume a little of both every day to survive.
2)I have been writing since I was around 10. I used to write and illustrate little mysteries starring me and my best friend.
3)My dream is to write a children’s book. Something no one has ever attempted to write about. Still trying to figure out what that book is…playing with titles like, “How Many Minutes Until Mommy Loses it?”(It’s probably already been done.)
4)I got into blogging thanks to my friend Lisa. The idea of putting my deep (or shallow) thoughts out there in public for everyone to read was scary… and liberating. It’s a release to blog. Besides, I love the word “blogging”. Sounds like an illness or affliction that someone has to purge and release. “Oh, I have to blog about this right now!” or “Someone please help me, I can’t stop blogging!” My motto: Just get it out and type it out, it’ll be okay.
5)My middle name is Jo. Between that, my first AND last names, I’ve had lots of people make lots of lame jokes over the years.
6)I will always root for the underdog. I am a champion for those who are different, odd, strange, unpopular, underestimated and underappreciated. Not necessarily saying this is what I was like in high school… (yes I am).
7)I have three main blessings in my life. My husband and my two kids. They truly are my entire life and I wouldn’t change a thing.
8 ) I am petrified of spiders. I realize this is one too many on my list, but those eight-legged freaks and the extreme heebie-jeebies they give me justify it.
