Blogger BFF Award

First of all, let me start by saying that I am sorry for my Debbie Downer post last night. The Farmer called about the time that I was expecting him home from work to say that he was only halfway home, and things just went downhill from there.

But today I am much better! And, to top it all off, I won a giveaway from Clemsongirl and the Coach, AND I got a blogger award from my friend, Jen...

This award states that I have to mention who gave me this award and give you her link (which I did). Now I have to tell you seven things about myself that no one knows. Hmmm...let's see...

1. I went to the International Science and Engineering Fair and to the National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine when I was in high school. Sounds like I was a really big nerd, but I wasn't (or at least, not in my opinion...).

2. My high school English teacher used to write me these really weird letters when I first went to Clemson. He has since died, but I found the letters at my parents' house recently, and they were just weird for a teacher to be sending a student. For instance, in one of the letters, he told me that they should build a statue of me somewhere.

3. I wanted to be a doctor until I met The Farmer. Then I decided that I didn't want to go to school that long -- I wanted to get married instead.

4. I got to tour the CIA headquarters at Langley when I was in the 9th grade.

5. My babies were all whoppers -- 9 lbs, 8 lbs 2 oz (my shrimp!), and 9 lbs 3 oz -- and that gives me a feeling of accomplishment. I don't know why, but it does.

6. I laugh when my kids get shots. In fact, I used to laugh when other people got hurt, but I don't do that as much anymore -- now it's pretty much just when my kids get shots, and the nurses think I'm crazy.

7. I took the CPA exam twice, but I didn't study either time. I'm not much of a studier, so I thought I would just see what happened. It didn't matter if I passed or not -- I was never planning on becoming a CPA -- I just did it on the suggestion of the farm's accountant. I did pass the Financial portion, though (woo-hoo, big deal...).

Okay, now that y'all all think I'm a total weirdo, I am supposed to pass this on to 6 bloggers who inspire me daily. However, my brain hurts from thinking up those 7 things, so if you would like to play along, please do!

Thanks again, Jen, for the sweet award...and many, many thanks for the sweet words in your all-about-Christie-post!
