Who Knew?

I have been honored in the past two days to be the recipient of the 'Stylish Blogger Award'!  Who knew I could be stylish!  A big thank you to Debbie over at Writin 4 Him and to Kelli and Heidi at Mothers on Mission for the honor.  Make sure you hop over and check them out.  I promise you'll come away encouraged!

So, in following the rules, I must list seven things you may not know about me.  Here goes...

1).  I grew up in Belton,SC and swore I'd never live here....well, guess what?  I do! In my husband's grandparent's old house.  It's old, but the hubby remodeled it...and the payments are CHEAP!

2).  My husband and I lived beside each other for about a year when we were kids.  We dated once when I was in college, but it didn't work out.  We met back up after I moved back into the area-that's a whole other story for another day.  We started dating in Feb. and were married in October.  We flew to Cancun right after 9/11...we were almost the only crazy people on the plane...which leads to #3

3).  I HATE to fly...hate. Hate.  Hate.  If I can't drive to it I won't see it this side of heaven (OK so obviously I need to work on that!)!

4).  I have always been afraid of the dark...not so much now (unless the hubby is out of town), but we do leave a night light on in the hall (for the kids, you know). 

5).  I LOVE to read.  I can read an entire book (like a really long one) in one day!  But I sometimes read the ending first to make sure it turns out OK-don't want to waste my time :-)

6).  I am messy.  I confess it.  I am NOT neat.  I will never be neat.  Please don't drop by my house Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday because we cannot find the door to let you in (those are the days I work my paid job and get up before Jesus so housework is just not on the agenda).

7).  I am not a people person.  Does that sound bad?  I'm sorry.  I'm just not.  If I know you, OK.  But if I don't, that's OK too.  And yes, I am working on this one also!  I am sssoo much better than I used to be (much to my hubby's delight), but that just is not my gift.  And I must confess that I'm glad it's not!

Me and my 4 favorite guys!

Whew!  Glad that is over.  The last part of the award is that I get to honor some other fellow bloggers with The Stylish Blogger award.  Please take the time to check these guys out (gals)--you'll be blessed!

Guys, you can refer back to Debbie's post for detailed instructions on what you should do with your award!

I am also afraid of the dark... especially when my husband is gone! I wrote a whole post on it once, I'll have to dig that out for you! I sleep terribly when he is gone... with the TV on and it's so silly! And, #6... me too... though I'm better than I once was, but that's just because with 3 kids if I didn't do something we'd be buried in here! Loved reading about you Allison!
