More Bloggylove and Weird Facts

I was given this award from Secret Mom Thoughts, who, like me, had to start another blog so that she didn't have to censor what she was writing due to her audience. Go check her out.

As the rules go, I now have to tell you 7 things you probably don't know about me.

Like I keep secrets from y'all. So, I'll just go with odd.

1. Ketchup completely freaks me out. I don't even like to touch it.

2. I have super long toes. Hubs calls them "fingers" or "monkey toes." I can use them to pick up stuff off the floor. It's the only thing that you can easily see that my boys inherited from me.

3. The last time I tried to color my hair myself, I ended up having to go to a salon and get "corrective color" done. My hair was ORANGE. Never again. Corrective color is expensive and I don't like looking like a clown.

4. Speaking of...I'm afraid of clowns.

5. My feet didn't grow during my first or second pregancy, but they did with my last. Hubs thinks I 'm totally making this up. At least my toes didn't get longer.

6. I used to be super-flexible-yoga-pretzel girl. Now, I doubt I could touch my toes.

7. Everyone who knows me from back in the day says that sometime around age 24, I changed so much that I "mutated" and look nothing at all like I did before then. I find this hilarious. Maybe when Hubs gets the scanner hooked up, I will put up some old pics and let you be the judge.

I pass this on to these bloggers and ask you to share the love(don't I just sound all warm and fuzzy today? Really, no one took over my blog, it's really me, Shell):

WYSIWYG (you know you want to go find out what that means!)

To accept your award, post it on your blog, link back to me, list your 7 facts, and then pass it on to 7 other blogs.

I also got the Lemonade Award from Vivianne's Vista and Triplets Plus Two Mama.

This one sort of makes me laugh, since it goes along with attitude and gratitude and I'm hardly a ray of sunshine, which you probably know if you were here last week for my pity party.

But, maybe they were just laughing at my pain. No really, I guess some of my craziness makes people laugh.

I pass this one on to other people who make me smile- some with great attitudes and some with attitudes more like mine. ;)

To accept your award, post it on your blog, link back to me, then pass it on to at least 10 other bloggers that show great gratitude/attitude.

It's Sunday- lots of people taking the day off from blogging, so go check out some of these fabulous blogs!

WOOHOO! Thanks Shell!
I'm feeling a little teary. This is the first award I have received that I didn't just snag off someone's site for being a follower.

On another note...I too have 'finger toes' and think that clowns are of the devil.

I too have monkey toes. I'm beginning to wonder if that is evolution for women though - made being 7+ months pregnant so much easier. How else do you pick dirty clothes up off the floor when you can't bend at the waist?

I hate ketchup, the smell of it makes me sick. Same with milk. I can not even touch the outside of a milk carton. Ever. Seriously, I make my kids grad it in the store, or I use a tissue. Yes, i get weird looks.

Hi Shell!

Thanks for the shout out/award. :) I think my guests are finally leaving tomorrow (?!) and I might finally have a prayer of playing blog sometime this week!!

"I used to be super-flexible-yoga-pretzel girl. Now, I doubt I could touch my toes."

What is up with that? Before I had my first kid, I used to feel pretty proud of how flexible I was was in yoga class. Now, like you, I'm not sure I can touch my toes and my body gives me hell when I crouch indian-style over tha laptop for too long (I can't seem to give that up). I want to start up yoga again (because I hear it only gets worse with age, use it or lose it, yay). But I'm afraid I'll embarrass myself (I know that self-consiousness is so besides the point of yoga practice, but there it is).
