Somehow I Won the Kreativ Blogger Award

Liz from Funny Postpartum Lady and Jenn at My Daily Jenn-ism thought I deserved the Kreativ Blogger Award. I can't say I blame them for bestowing upon me this honor. I mean let's face it, I'm pretty darn awesome. When will you all learn you're only inflating my already over sized ego by giving me these awards?

Okay, I'm being a little facetious. I am truly honored these two ladies thought of me when giving this award. I really enjoy both of their blogs because they are honest and funny. I'm still getting used to this whole blog thing, and these ladies help keep me going. So thank you Jenn and Liz.

There are rules attached as with most peer blogger awards. The rules are easy, fun rules so I will try to follow them all.

1. Thank and link back to the awarding blog. (Done and Done.)

2. Answer seven questions.

3. Provide 10 random factoids about yourself. (This one is tough.)

4. Hand the award on to 7 deserving others. (Gah! I got it.)

Question #1: What is your favorite song? Man, this is really hard. I am a lover of music so I find it hard to pick one song, so I'll go over a few. I love Manic Depression by Jimi Hendrix. Every time I hear this song, I feel content. I feel Jimi's confusion, pain and his love for music. Next, Everlong by The Foo Fighters. I love this song's rhythm. It's soft and hard, loud and quiet all at the same time. Finally, I love Death Cab for Cutie's I Will Follow You Into the Dark. I want this song to be about me. Love it.

Question #2: What's your favorite desert? I'm not a big sweets person. I rarely crave sweets. That said, my favorite desert is just plain, old-fashioned white cake. Traditional wedding cake is my favorite thing in the whole world. Moist white cake with buttercream frosting is delicious.

Questions #3: What do you when you're upset? Honestly? I hold it all in. Otherwise, I'll just cry or say something I'll regret. Probably not the most effective way to deal with things, but it's just how I roll.

Question #4: What is your favorite pet? I have two dogs and a beta fish. Of those three, the fish is my favorite. She's quiet and low maintenance. I love the dogs too, but they are so damn needy. However, I love cats so much. If I had a place for a litter box, I'd have one.

Question #5: Which do you prefer, white or whole-wheat bread? Well, it really depends. White bread is so good for grilled cheese or toast. In our house, we mostly eat wheat/multi-grain. They say it's better for you, so we eat it. I now enjoy it over white bread.

Question #6: What is your biggest fear? Being in a fiery automobile accident. There is just so much that could wrong. You could die, become paralyzed, brain dead, lose limbs, etc. It is so unpredictable and I don't want to experience it.

Question #7: What is your attitude mostly? I've been thinking about this a lot lately. I've come to the conclusion I'm pretty apathetic. I know this may not be considered a good attitude to have, but I can't help it. I just let things kind of happen and accept the good or the bad in life. Of course I have my moments when I'm over the moon about something. They are just few and far between.

Identical me.

Ten random facts:

1.  I played the flute for seven years. I was in marching and concert band and loved it. I was pretty good.
2.  I love Cheetos. It's a borderline addiction. I love licking my fingers when I'm done. Yum!
3.  When I hear Katy Perry's Fireworks song, I get so happy. Like tear up happy. Yikes.
4.  I have flat feet and my feet always hurt. I just ignore it and still wear flip flops or ballet flats. No support whatsoever. As a result, I've formed a bunion. Sexy.
5.  Real Husband and I started out as a booty call. I didn't want to love him and he didn't want to love me. It just happened and we couldn't fight the feeling.
6.  I don't like ice cream. I feel like the only living person that doesn't like it.
7.  I unintentionally gave my children matching names. I'm embarrassed about it and always think people are judging me on their names.I didn't even realize it until Real Girl was two years old and someone pointed it out to me. Ugh. (Don't ask what they are 'cause I won't tell.)
8.  I am obsessed with Stephen King novels. For a long time it was like air for me. I couldn't live without it.
9.  I am a name nerd (read: snob). I'm not having any more children, but I fantasize what I would name another child. You can often find me on baby naming websites and forums. Is that creepy?
10.  I hate country music. When I was young I enjoyed it a lot. I mean, I am from Texas. Now, I'd rather sit in a locked room with no means of escape and listen to Insane Clown Posse than listen to country music.

Now that you know more about little ol' me, go on over and check out some of these blogs I love:

FireandRabbits: Cassandra is wonderful woman with lots of quirks that make for some entertaining reading. Sometimes serious, other times insane, all the time awesome. Check her out.
Tripping Tuesdays: Cricket rocks! She's a newer blogger who has some interesting topics she discusses. She's a mom with a cool view on things. Besides, she reads my blog and even leaves comments. Who wouldn't love that?
Attracted to Shiny Things:  If you ever need to read the most random of thoughts, visit Yvonne's blog. She's got kids who say the darnedest things. It's a fun journey.
Because Motherhood Sucks: Right? Selena is an honest lady. Motherhood isn't all fairy dust and unicorn farts. It's tough.

Diamonds, Dog Tags and Diapers: Chelsea is married to a Marine. She has amazing give-aways and writes from the heart.

One Tired Mama: She's tired. Go over and give her a hug would ya?

Organized People are Just Too Lazy to Look for Stuff: It's true. At least I think so. She's funny and makes me giggle.
