A Pleasant Surprise From Hannah

Well, Hannah gave me a lovely award.  I shall endeavor to be stylish, hip, and cool going forth from today.

I am supposed to tell you 7 things about me, so here goes:

1.  I have 28 nieces and nephews.  I think.  I may be off by one or two. :)  
2.  I will read 2-4 books at once.  I get bored easily and have to switch it up! And I never start a book over.  I pick up where I stopped, even if it was months ago.  
3.  One thing I really want to do is go on a ghost hunt.  Goggles, cameras, recorders, you name it!  I have to disprove before I accept what's in front of me.  Or behind me.  
4.  I am deathly afraid of very deep water, but am fascinated by the ocean.  This terror stems from a close call in a pool when I was younger.  I remember sitting on the bottom of the pool, knowing I couldn't get to the top.  
5. I don't own a brush or a comb.  I am blessed with thick wavy hair that I style with my hand and a blow dryer.  I use Suave shampoo and conditioner and that's it.  My mom used Prell on us when we were kids and we all still have our hair.
6.  I love Tiffany style stained glass and would love to live in a house that is full of it--windows and lamps.
7.  The first time I got drunk I was 15 and had a few too many sloe gin fizzes at my brother's wedding.  I got tipsy with my friend who lived next door.  That was the end of sloe gin anything for me.

I would love to pass this on, but I decided  a while ago that to maintain my sanity, and keep others from losing theirs, I would graciously accept my award, tell a bit about myself, and stop.  

So thank you, Hannah (and fellow Mid-Westerner)  for thinking of me!


  1. I'm the same with the books!!,also the ghost hunt ,I'm going to do the night ghost tour of The Rocks in Sydney next time I'm up there,and tiffany glass/stained glass windows,I think they're gorgeous.

  2. I got a new book yesterday and Ryan says I need to finish the other three I've started first. lol :)

  3. You and I must be related! seriously! I read 2 to 4 books at a time. And I love love the ocean but am scared of the deep part because of a childhood incident where I ended up on the bottom of the floor of the pool and could not figure how to get up to the top (luckily for me my dad saved me). Crazy huh!

  4. That is crazy, Tracy! It's the only time I wished I listened to my mother and kept the blow up floaty thing around my waist. I sank like a rock as soon as I took it off.

    It is damn near impossible for me to read just one book at a time. Those who don't read just don't understand :)

  5. I can relate to the fear of deep water but still having a fascination with the ocean. My terrifying experience happened in a lake, though.

    I also got drunk on sloe gin the first time, but it was a year earlier than you. (Yeah, I'll fess up. I wasn't always this innocent. LOL!)

    I've been known to read 2 books at a time but I haven't read at all in a long time. I miss it.

    Wow. That all sounded rather depressing, didn't it? Anyway.... Loved learning more about you. It's one of the things I really enjoy about some of the awards out there.
