Ima let you finish, but I'm the best blogger of the year! ;)

Haha, STOP, I know...I just couldn't resist one last jab at Kanye for the week! ;) Friday has finally arrived!! Yippee!! Cameron and I are driving to Austin later this afternoon and will pick Mason up at the Austin airport. After that, another football weekend adventure will commence. This weekend, we are playing the pesky Texas Tech Raiders. Last year, they pretty much cost us our shot at a National Championship. Now it's payback time! Let's go Longhorns!! Beat the Hell Outta Texas Tech!!! :)

On another note, I would like to thank Cee @ Curiosity for awarding me the Kreative Blogger Award! Yay! :) Here are the rules for my acceptance of this award...
1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people may not know.
5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they've been nominated.

Here are some tidbits that you may not know about moi:

1. I've recently come to the conclusion, that my favorite food is mashed potatoes. Not baked potatoes, not scalloped ones, not even potato salad will do it for me, just mash those babies up and add a little butter and garlic salt and pass them my way.. Mmmmm :)

2. I know how to sign the alphabet in sign language. We were tought this handy skill back in 3rd grade, I think, and I still remember it. I am pretty good at it and I can do it really fast. Sometimes when I am listening to a song on the radio I will sign the first letter of each word while I am listening to it. Nerd alert, I know! ;)

3. I am OCD about two things in my apartment (1) I must insist that you use a coaster when setting a drink down on any surface. A lot of our furniture is real wood and I am deathly afraid of ring marks, I even make people use coasters on the glass coffee table because I HATE cleaning up said ring marks that condensating glasses leave behind. (2) My placemats on my kitchen table have to be straight at all times and the chairs at the table should be pushed in after we leave the table. I am CONSTANTLY straightening the placemats and pushing in the chairs. These two things drive me CRAZY! :)

4. Before Mason came along, I did not know any rap songs, aside from the ones that were on the pop, top 40-type radio stations. Now I am a g-h-e-t-t-o thug for life! I know all the latest rap jams, most of the slang and find myself recording shows on tv like Behind the Music: Lil' Wayne. Thanks Mase! ;)

5. Every time Mason buys a lottery ticket for the Mega Millions drawing, I seriously think know we are going to win. One of my favorite things to do in the car (after passing a Mega Millions billboard) is to daydream about how I will spend all of that money... sigh....

6. I LOVE Wheel of Fortune! I even tried out to be on the game show during college. I thought I was a shoe-in, for sure. I was the first one in my group to solve a puzzle and I know I scored well on the little puzzle quiz they gave us. But I didn't even make it past the first round of cuts! Maybe it had something to do with the fact that it was for the BIG 12 College-Edition of the show and I wore a cute little outfit while everyone else wore their school sweatshirts. I didn't get the school-spirit memo... PSH! Whatever, I was robbed!! Oh well, these days I get my kicks playing at home and you better believe that Mason and I are both members of the Wheel Watchers Club! ;)

7. I am a NAUI certified rescue-diver! I took two semesters of scubadiving in college to get that fancy little title. I really don't scubadive all that much though. Last time I went scubadiving was during Junior year of college, in Belize (we were there for one day during a cruise). It was so shady! Me and two girl friends went out in the middle of the ocean with these two random scuba instructor guys and they dumped all of these bloody fish in the water to "feed" the sharks before we got in, so that they wouldn't be hungry for us I suppose. So we literally went scubadiving among sharks! Probably the most extreme thing I've ever done (esp. since I have a slight fear of fish)! ;)
Amy, Lauren and Caroline - HOT Scuba certified babes!We swam with these nurse sharks!

  1. Congratulations on your award!!

    Thank is SO cool that you can do the alphabet in sign language!! I would love to learn it!

    Thank you SO much for passing on the award to me!! I will wear it with pride! :0) Have a great weekend!

  2. You're so interesting. :) Scuba diver rescuer?

    Oh, I think we all do the same thing about the lottery. Haha! I always figured I'd just go straight to the plastic surgeon and go from there!

    Ok, now I have to think of some interesting things about myself...hmm might take a minute.

  3. Thanks girl! You definitely deserve this award :) I love the scuba bit...but you are way more brave than I to dive with sharks in bloody water. Also, our official state lotto here in the Natural State starts next month...I wonder if they will kick us out of the Bible Belt :)

  4. Just stopped by via Cee's blog, your blog is so cute! I must say, every time I go by one of those Mega Millions billboards I always think about it too...especially a few weeks ago when the jackpot was way up there :) The scuba rescue diving sounds very cool, also!

  5. So I gave you another award...I got another one and so I had to share the love :)
