First of all, I'd like to thank all of you for commenting on my last post!  I got 31 comments on Friday which means 31 dollars will be going to Soles4Souls.  I also got a comment from the charity itself- which is totally awesome!

I've gotten some awards recently that I really need to acknowledge 1)because the givers-of-said-awards are totally awesome and b) I may have started to forget who gave me what...(eep, blame it on the hair- go ahead, I don't mind)

Apparently I'm pretty stylin' because Colene from The Journey, Madeleine from Scribble and Edit, D.P King from The Cosmic Laire, and Madeline from Capricious Existence, and TC McKee all gave me the Stylish Blogger Award!  Thanks guys- you rock!

I also got the NEW Versatile Blogger award from Carol Riggs at Artzicarol Ramblings!

Okay so the rules say to state 7 things about myself.  I haven't done this in a while, so I will go ahead and try to think up some random things about me.

1.  I hate certain textures of food like oatmeal, fried ochra, blueberries, and mushy fruit.  Sorry, can't do em.

2.  I was 2 lbs 11 oz when I was born 3 months early.  My head fit into my dad's palm with room to spare.

3.  My daughter on the other hand, was 9 lbs 1 oz and was "2 days" early.  I say that with quotes because I swear she was at least a week late.  She's now the smallest one in her class.

4.  I can triple roll my tongue

5.  I hate feet in which the second toe is longer than the big toe.  Sadly my husband is cursed with this (as is most the population I have found out) and quite possibly my daughter, although it's hard to tell.

6.  My daughter thought I was Sarah Michelle Gellar on the cover of a magazine one time.  She'll never know just how ecstatic I was- I was obsessed with her and all things Buffy when it was on.

7.  I feel awkward and weird around kids.  Probably why I only have one.

Weelp, that's about it.  Now on to the giving-out-of-awards:

I always want to give the awards out to people I haven't given them out to yet.  So while I think all of you deserve these awards, I'll just name a few people who are totally stylin' and cool:
Angela Felsted
Rachel Morgan
Michelle Merrill
Rachael Harrie

Thanks again for reading my blog, peeps!  Lurrrves and kisses!

Also to all the others who are also stylish... Congrats.


Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Congratulations on the awards. And I used to hate oatmeal for the very same reason - lumpy texture.

L.A. Colvin said...

COngrats on the awards. I'm the same way about oatmeal. It seems slimy and mushy-lumpy at the same time. ughh

Candyland said...

I hate certain textures too. Especially the mush. Blegh.

Kimberly said...

Congratulations on the awards. I cracked up on #5 because I once took notice of this, checking people out and thought it was interesting. Mine is not longer by the way. :)

Colene Murphy said...

Awkward and weird around kids too! You were so tiny! And my hubs and his mom both have those feet!! I'm terrified if we ever do have a baby it will have those toes!! Freaky. As. Crap.
Congrats on all your awards! Definitely stylish! (I totally see the Sarah Michelle thing!)

Kindros said...

Thanks so much for the award. :)

And I know exactly how number 7 feels. I just have no idea how to act. To make it worse, my little cousin (7) loves me and won't leave me alone. :( I was hoping that it would go away when I had kids, this doesn't sound to promising anymore though.

Congratulations on your awards! :)

Carol Riggs said...

Yep, congrats, and congrats to those you're passing the awards on to! Nice to learn more about you--what an interesting list. Hey, btw, it's called Morton's Toe, where the second toe is longer. Whoa--with an image search on Google, you can see some people's second toe is a LOT longer than their big toe. Um, not me. My big toe is hugeous while all my other toes are shrimpy. My older daughter is cursed with this toe too. LOL

Lisa Potts said...

Congrats on the awards!

My daughter and I just watched a few old episodes of Buffy this weekend. It's the first time she's ever seen it and she's hooked. What a great show.

Funny you should mention feeling awkward around kids. Happens to me too. No, not my own, but most everyone else's. A lot of my friends are teachers and that was the one profession I knew I never wanted to pursue. But I LOVE writing YA. Go figure!

Melissa said...

My second toe is longer than my big toe. You aren't going to not like me now, are you? (I figure my chances are okay with this considering you are still married to your husband.)

That's so awesome about yoru daughter thinking you were Sarah Michelle Gellar ( I can totally see it too!)

Also, I HATE blueberries. Like.... I loathe them.

You were 2lbs! That is INSANE. ANd triple rolling your tongue? I have never heard of someone being able to do that so thats cool!

Congrats on the awards and that is awesome that the charity actually commented on your post!

Jennie Bailey said...

Congrats on the awards!! You can triple roll your tongue? That alone deserves an Award! I love blueberries, but I can't do mushy apples. They have to be crunchy or I can't eat them!

Donea Lee said...

Congrats on your awards! And yay - I do not have those toes! :P I have premies in my family, too. Always interesting to find out random facts! And that's awesome that you racked up some good comments for your charity ~

Rachael Harrie said...

Woohoo, thanks for my awards (and congrats to you for receiving them!!!) :) I'm going to accept with pleasure...

...and then...

...tell you not to look at my toes. Ever. Or a beautiful friendship may be ruined ;)



mom said...

We have always been proud of your "talent"...and although you were also the smallest in your class, you were usually the smartest and most talented!
love the blogs!

Talli Roland said...

Congrats on the awards! :) Wow, triple rolling your tongue? Now that's a talent.

Rachel Morgan said...

I was hurrying on down to leave a comment about how impressive your triple-tongue-rolling ability is, and I almost missed my own name in the list! Thank you so much :-)

Amie Kaufman said...

Well done on the awards! You can triple roll your tongue? I can't even single roll mine... and it's supposed to be genetic... and both my parents can. Not sure if there's something somebody needs to tell me.
