An Award? For Moi?

WOW! Kerry at the signing life has nominated me for the  Versatile Blogger's Award!
And actually, this is the second time I've been nominated...
the first time, I was so new to this blogging thing, that I didn't really know what to do.
I certainly didn't know 15 other blogs to nominate!
Guess what? I still don't, but I'm going to do my best!

To accept this award, the nominee must do the following things:
1) Thank the person who gave the nomination (Thanks again, Kerry!)
2) List 7 interesting facts about him or herself (Yikes!)
3) Pass on the nomination to 15 newly discovered blogs

Here are my seven {cough} interesting facts about myself:       
1. I met my husband in college when we were freshmen; he was dating my roommate at the time.  Later, I dated his roommate before we ended up together :-)

2. Before becoming a Mom and leaving the work force to be with the kids, I worked in banking.  I was robbed twice at gun-point; yep- gun in my face.  Good times!

3. When I was younger, I took ballet for 5 years. I moved to the "en pointe" class a year earlier than everyone else.  I really enjoyed it but never thought I was all that good, so I gave it up.  Definitely wish i hadn't!

4. Somehow with all my interest in dancing, singing, acting, etc.  I ended up in an engineering program in college. I know, right? Obviously, I didn't end up in that field...

5. I was in Air Force ROTC one year in high school.

6. I overheard someone describe her daughter this way today:"if she doesn't really know you, you'll think she's the most quiet and shy girl you've ever met.  Once she gets to know you and starts talking--watch out!"  It's a pretty accurate description for me as well.

7. At 35, I am finally beginning (and learning) to accept who I am right now and not feel the need to apologize.  I am learning that acceptance doesn't have to mean settling.

DUDE! That was hard! 
Now it's time to share the love!

Check out these new blogs I've been reading or have recently discovered! Leave them some comment love!
