An Award from Sweet Sondra!
I won an award from dear sweet Sondra! She is probably one of the nicest blog friends ever! Last year she grew an amazing beautiful container garden and I was so impressed. She shares recipes, motivational thoughts and sounds like a marvelous Primary teacher. She cleans homes for a living Maybe I should see if the hubs would pay me to clean this one.
Sondra is someone I would like to meet!
The rules of the award are:
List seven things about yourself. Link back to the person that gave you the award.
Pass the award on to seven bloggers.
I'm sorta boring.....
#1 I was a hairdresser BC before children. I've managed to stay up on my awesome haircutting skills by cutting the family's hair...and neighbors....and strangers....ya, one time I was called by the hospital to come and cut a woman's hair that had just had a baby and she had LICE! I kid not! It may or may not have been the hospital I currently work at. Bless this poor woman's heart. She had a beautiful mane. I really didn't mind doing it.
Another story that I can share that I DID mind cutting hair.....so it was Thanksgiving typically very cold in these parts I was asked to bring a salad, rolls and my scissorsshould have forgotten the scissorsSo my hubs comes from a family of 10 kids....I come from a family of one brother....I'll leave it to you to decide who's side of the family I was gonna be the hairdresser for.........oh, and my parents don't have a garage.
Anyway, before I knew what happened I was in the garage cutting hair. Lot's of hair...more than one head of hair. How 'bout 21 heads of hair! Ya, I think that by the time I was done the stuffing was gone, the whipping cream was gone and my clothes were HAIRY That was the last time I brought a pair of scissors with me.
#2 I had always wanted to be a nurse. I had visions of helping people and being like Florence Nightingale....I didn't know what she died of at that time or I might have not wanted to be like her....not telling by the way, look it up. Well, it never seemed to be a good time to go to school cause the babies kept coming. Finally decided that I would just check it out at the local college. Before I knew it I had signed up for two classes with my 6 week old baby in tow and 3 years later I was a nurse. I was 33 when I started. Way too old. Then Ricks College changed to BYUI and I vowed I would get my Bachelors Degree too. I completed that 3 years ago.
#3 I work in the Emergency Room now.
#4 I love to be around things and people that make me laugh. That's why I work in the Emergency Room. Ya, there is sad stuff and stuff that makes me cry....but oh. my. heck.there is a whole lot of funny stuff that goes on there!
#5 I have recently gotten into photography and learning to use my camera better. You can spend some serious $$$ on camera stuff. I've also recently become obsessed with card-making and scrapbooking. Did you know you can spend some SERIOUS money on that stuff? WOW! Good thing my hubby doesn't read my blog. I wouldn't want him to know that.
#6 I have five great kids and SEVEN grandchildren. I don't know how I got so old that all that happened, but it's a blast. I love when they all come home and it's a madhouse. It's fun to watch my children interact with each other as older adults. They are pretty stinkin' funny.
#7 I married my best friend. He's the kindest person I know. He always says the best and thinks the best of people. He's always the first to say "I love you" and "I'm sorry". I think I struck it rich with him.
Whew, that pretty much took forever to come up with.
Now for the easy part.
I'm passing this award on to these fabulous bloggers. I go there everyday to see what they've hatched up.
Farmergals Market. She lives far away, but if we were neighbors I'd borrow stuff from her. She's like a master ninja photographer. I wanna be like her. AND I love her humor.
Next would be LKP of Romma-longa-dingdong. Some day I'm gonna meet her. She is seriously hilarious and I'm sure I will enjoy her. hopefully she'll reveal how she came up with Romma-longa-dingdong
Then I choose Julie of Circle Cliff Views. She's very inspirational and motivating and I really want to sit on her porch! Beautiful home!
Then Jeannie would be my next choice. She makes beautiful cards and her hubby is military. They are going to be stationed in Italy soon. Wow, I can't imagine!
Linda is next. She's a fellow nurse and I love reading her stuff. Also, she has this dog Skye and I have to follow her to see what the dog is up to next. He sounds like a totally spoiled creature. So cute!
An Old Fashion Girl is a great blog to read. She posts several things she's thankful for. I love her bloggy style and how sweet she is. I would love to meet her.
Wendy of No Botox Allowed/Cowpoop and Tiaras (or something like that) is always a good place to land. She's a city girl turned country girl and i love reading her. Someday I want to meet her!
Victoria of The Welcome Mat is very fun for me to read. She's a musician, composer, producer of CD's of her work and a mom of young kids. She really reminds me of me when I had a houseful of little kids. Except I'm not a musician, composer and producer of CD's of my work. But I had little kids
So, there you have it. Info about me you probably never wanted/needed to know. AND a few blogs to check out for your reading pleasure.
Again, Sondra, thanks! You are a sweetie.
so I realized I have featured 8 bloggers....don't care...I'm keeping them!
