I have been nominated for the Liebster Award!!  I'm so excited!  Thanks to the fabulous Mrs. K. Scott from No Rest For The Weary Mommy for the nominating me for this prestigious award.  This is a dream I have had since a very young age.  I would also like to thank the academy {okay, so maybe I've always wanted to say that}.  Seriously though, this blog thing is something I started as a way of communicating with R while he was away and I was unable to talk to him. I never dreamed it would connect me to so many awesome women and one Hubby Jack.  Thank you all for sticking around to read my thoughts.

11 Random Facts About Me...

1.  The first time I saw the ocean I was 15 years old and in Australia
2.  My job requires me to wear athletic shoes, however outside of school {unless I'm at the gym} you will rarely see me in athletic shoes or flats.
3.  Besides R, very few people know everything about me.  It takes a long time for me to trust someone enough to have a "no filter" status.
4.  I love to shop, but would rather spend my money on someone else than on myself.
5.  My favorite colors are grey and teal.
6.  My #1 hobby is photography.  It is perhaps my favorite form of self expression.
7.  I cannot hula hoop.
8.  I can make balloon animals - call that my hidden talent if you will.
9.  My hair color is not natural - You're shocked, I know.
10.  I want to go sky diving.
11.  Sometimes my favorite place to be is at home.
