You win some, you win some?

I was recently surprised with this Kretiv Blogger award from Two Toddlers and Me . This site is one of my newly discovered blogs, but one I enjoy very much. Check it out for some great reads!
Now the rules for this award are:
1. Thank the person who awarded you.
2. Copy and paste the logo into your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4. List 7 things about yourself that readers might not know.
che... Ooh. Well let's see.

My 7 unknowns are:

1. I was painfully shy all through school-but I changed in college. (There's no going back now!)

2. I was what my husband refers to as a band geek in high school.

3. I once loathed any exercise that caused a sweat.

(Changed that too!)

4. I hate spiders and anything that can crawl or slither faster than I can move, but after the initial scream, I feel badly about them and I either bravely scoop them up with a tissue and toss them outside, or I get one of my kids to do it.

(Yes, I know-they probably turn and head right back in, but I feel like such a good guy when I spare their lives!)

5. I do not feel the same for ants or flies. I can kill them on the spot!

6. I am a sucker when it coms to sappy movies. I actually feel cleansed somehow after crying my eyes out during one. (Plus, no matter how many times I may have seen the movie, I cry in all the same places!)

7. I always wanted to learn how to tap dance, but since I have two left feet, that may never be possible...

I am also supposed to get a list together of 7 other Kreativ blogs, but that will have to wait for another post-I need to rescue my son's stuffed snake. The dog decided he wanted to see what made the thing fluffy so I am off to do an emergency "snakedectomy" so my son doesn't find out. (It's been a long week and it's only Tuesday!) Thanks again 2 Toddlers and Me!


  1. Congrats on your awards. Ick on the spiders. I can't even look at pictures of them. Blech.

  2. Congrats on the award. And hey, dance like no one is watching! lol

  3. I had to laugh about the spiders! I'm the same way...I feel like such a good person after throwing them outside into the snow. Spared their life, I did... :)

  4. Congrats on your awards! I love sappy movies too. My husband groans when he catches me watching one. He knows that I'll be super emotional for awhile after watching it :) Great to get to know you better too!

  5. yay! So glad you got an award. I loved all your answers. I hope you were able to save the stuffed snake. LOL

  6. Congrats on your award! I don't like small bugs, spiders especially. I usually get my husband to grab them and take them outside.

    Thanks for reading my family stories post and for your wonderful comment! :)

  7. I hate spiders too. I have to kill them though, I can't even imagine trying to get them outside to free them and then having them crawl on me. Ugh.

    I like exercise too. I've gone through bits and spurts with it through my life where I'm addicted for a couple months and then I'm off it and could care less. Right now I'm in an off couple of weeks unfortunately. Cold weather always does me in.


Please make my day and leave a comment.
