I LOVE Awards!!!

Yay! Thanks to Courtney for this wonderful award. I'm so honored!!!

Here are the rules for the award:

~Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog.

~Copy the award and paste it to your blog.

~Tell us 7 interesting facts about yourself.

~Nominate 7 bloggers that you love and link to their blog.

Let's see...

1. I am an MTV junkie and have been since I was about 7! I'm getting a little better, but one of my dream jobs growing up would have been to be an MTV V-jay! Wouldn't that be cool.

2. When I was in 6th grade, I auditioned for the Mickey Mouse Club. I loved that show and sooo wanted to be one of the kids on that show.

3. I often sing dumb songs to my students when they don't listen. My favorite is, "Put Your Pencils Down." One of my kids told me that I sounded like an angel from above. Puh-lease, that kid's a butt-kiss!! :)

4. I'm 100% afraid of the dark. Not just the darkness, but nighttime too. I have this weird belief that bad things only happen at night. I'm getting better where I don't need to have every single light on in the house, but EVERY window is shut and doors are locked and then double checked. And pumping gas after the sun goes down...JESSSSSSSS!

5. I married my husband because of his resemblance to Dave Matthews. Not really, but when we were dating (and Jess had a lot more hair, sorry hun!) they really did look a lot alike. I still have a huge flutter in my heart when I see good ol' DMB!

6. I have over 30 cousins on my dad's side. He is the second oldest of 12 children. I wanted to have a huge family like my dad's family. I love the loudness, closeness and craziness of the huge family.

7. We started going to a new church almost a year ago and I finally feel like I have a genuine relationship with God. I am in love with our new church and want to scream it from the rooftops!

Meant to be a Mom at Hanging with Mr. Cooper

Thanks so much for the award.
I will post it on my blog for sure.

I love that you sing all the time. I sing too. I make up songs constantly to Cooper.
He smiles at me but I know its because I'm terrible and he thinks its funny :)
I bet your students love you.

Good for you guys finding a great church and going every week. Doesn't it make you feel great!

I LOVE big families too. There is nothing like a big crazy loud family, especially on holidays.

I love all your answers. So fun.

I hope you have a great weekend.

Thank you so much for nominating me for this award! You are too kind.

I love your 7 things! The Dave Matthews thing cracks me up! I could see the resemblence.

I also pull ALL blinds and doors ARE all locked!! Nightime is a lot less scary in my house with lights on!

Thanks so much for the award! Love ya! And hoping you'll still get that dream of having a big family of your own.

Hillary said...

Aw, thank you!

I am such a scaredy-cat at night, too. I hate being that way and freaking out :( My DH says I have watched too many crime shows, haha.
