WOW! An Award!!

Thanks Jess and Ashley for the award!  I love awards!!!

Here are the rules for the acceptance of the award:
1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you the award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 other bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.

Here are the 7 things you may not know about me...

1. I sent in a video to be on the Real World when I was 21.  I obviously never was selected, but I sent it!  Talk about reality junkie!

2. I met Oprah last April after I won a huge Gardner White contest!  I will have to post the picture!

3. When I am stressed out, angry or irritated, my first instinct is to clean.  It's very therapeutic!  Jesse knows when I have a mop in my hands to take cover.  He's also really good at teacher's stressful times: conferences, report cards, Open House, etc.  He will make sure the kitchen is spotless so it doesn't bug me!

4. Jesse is only the 2nd person I dated seriously.  I had a high school boyfriend that I dated for 1 year and a half and Jesse.  I went out with other guys, but no one that I said the "l" word to!

5. I cannot go to bed without a clean face or clean teeth.  I don't care how tired I am, the face MUST be clean and I can't even imagine how people can go to bed without brushing their teeth...GROSS!

6. My dream is to one day write a children's book and get it published.  This is also something that scares the living daylights out of me.  I really need to stop talking about it and actually DO IT!

7. My weakness is a bag of potato chips!  I have to keep them out of the house because if they are anywhere near me, I will eat them!  Yum!  Just talking about them makes me want some!!

Thanks for the award! It was wonderful to know a bit more about you! You should definitely follow your dream of writing a children's book, no time like the present:)

Hillary said...

Thanks for the award! I wish I had the cleaning reaction when stressed out ;)

I did get the book on Amazon, but I found two different places on Amazon - one from other sellers and one from Amazon. I didn't realize the link I had was for the other sellers, and it's weird how tricky it is to find. I hope this one works:


If not, I am sure you can find it somewhere else online?!
