Blog Award!!!

After a very long night and half a day of being awake so I could tackle the housecleaning monster, I took a two hour nap, and when I came back I read all the wonderful comments on my last post, and I saw one from Jupiter Greenmoone and she told me that she nominated me for a blog award!!!

My First Ever Blog Award!!!!

Thank you SO much Jupiter, this really made my day.  It has just been the day for good things to happen so far :)

Ok, here are the award rules:

1.) Thank the person who gave this to you.
2.) Copy the logo and place it in your blog.
3.) Link the person who nominated you.
4.) Name 7 things about yourself that no one would really know.
5.) Nominate seven 'Kreativ Bloggers.'
6.) Post links to the seven blogs you nominate.
7.) Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them.

Seven (More) things about me:

1.) I have three kids. My oldest daughter is almost 13, my son just turned 11, and my baby girl will be 5 in less than a month.  I had a really tough time as a teen, got married at 16, pregnant 3 months later, and split up when my oldest was 2 months old. Being a kid still who had no job and no clue how to take care of myself, my parents took my daughter in so she would have everything she needed. I had my son 18 months later, and had him until he was 5, when another really bad relationship found me with nothing again, and they took him in as well. There is a lot more history there, with some not so nice things done to me in the middle, but that is the sweet readers digest version of it. My youngest daughter lives with me and her father. He is the only one that stuck around to be with me and help raise his child. I see the kids often, they live less than 10 minutes away from me.

2.) People tend to judge me for the above information, until they hear all the horror stories, and I am ok with that. The only thing that matters is that my kids have everything they need, and are well taken care of, and they have a relationship with me and we love each other. If no on else ever understands our situation, that is ok.

3.) I have a zillion things I want to write about at any given time, but my mind works so fast I have a hard time slowing it down enough to get all the posts out lol.

4.) I  am a music and music trivia junkie. I know more useless info on music over the last 50 years ( 50 years of music that is, I am only 30 ) than I know what to do with. It also means I am the person people go to when they have 3 words to the lyrics of a song and they need title and artist lol.

5.) I am also a movie junkie, and have been known to have entire conversations using quotes from movies lol.

6.) I am double jointed in my elbows..which is essentially useless lol. But it does gross my kids out heh heh.

7.) I am more content and happy than I have been in my whole life. Considering my life...that is one of the most epic things I could possibly say.

Now I get the very hard part of trying to narrow the field down to only 7 bloggers, because I love and adore every blog I follow, and all the people I have met in the blogosphere. If I did not get you this time, please do not think I do not love your blogs, and I will get you next time! I also did not name anyone in Jupiter's Post  or  Boo's Post in the spirit of no repeats right away. So here are 7 of the blogs I love to read and I think deserve the award!

1.) A Racing Mind
2.) Eco Yogini
3.) Girlichef
4.) Raydens Rants
5.) From Clutter to Shine
6.) Octoberfarm
7.) The Secret Diary of a Mountain Witch

There you have it. It has taken me two hours of deliberation with myself to pick these 7 wonderful people, so if you have not yet checked them out, please do so. They are ALL wonderful in their own unique ways and I think you will enjoy what you find!

Thank you again to Jupiter, this has made me feel SO awesome!

I haven't watched Dragonball Z in a long time and I actually never got to see Dragonball. My husband downloaded all the episodes for me to watch but it was kind of hard to get into. Back in January, when my husband and room mate went out of town, I watched every single episode of Full Metal Alchemist back to back and it freaking rocked.
