The Butterfly Award

In lieu of my normal Saturday Shout-Out, I wanted to post this.

I’m grinning from ear to ear right now because the fabulous and awesome Miss Skinny Bean nominated me for

You should check her out- really.  Now for the rules for this wonderful award:

The Rules:
Link to the person who awarded it to you.
Share 7 things about yourself.
Answer the questions below.
Award it to 15 other bloggers.

Since I already linked to her, let’s talk about me!

1.  My first car was a Buick Park Avenue that needed brake fluid EVERY time I got in it.  The one time I forgot was the one time I had to pull the E brake when the traffic suddenly stopped.

2.  My favorite ice cream is Stater Bros. Rocky Road.  Not Ben & Jerry’s.  Not Breyers- Stater Bros.  And, no, I can’t tell you why.
3.  Before I got pregnant with Camo, I had bought a pair of Doc Marten’s.  After I gave birth, they no longer fit.
4.  I frequently quote lines from the movie ‘Labrinth’.  If you’ve never seen it, I give you permission to get up now to rent it.  You can resume this entry later after you’re more cool.
5.  I went fishing once and caught a weird fish called a sculpin.  I named it Sculpy and put it in my fish tank.
6.  I have a crush on Dan Haren, pitcher for the Angels.  Yes, I know that he’s married- I am too.  I never said I wanted to have a long lasting relationship with him- I just think he’s pretty to look at.
7.  I’m averaging roughly 4-5 hours of sleep a night lately (thank you, Mini-Master).  At this rate, I’ll go crazy from sleep deprivation LONG before I go senile.
Questions, questions, questions…
Favorite Color:  Pink
Favorite Song:  It depends on my mood- sometimes I’m in a Shakira kind of mood, sometimes its a Phil Collins kind of mood.  Sometimes I just want a little bit of Hawk Nelson, and sometimes I just put my phone’s play list on shuffle.
Favorite Dessert: Cheesecake… hands down.  I have an amazing recipe for it, too.  Maybe I’ll share one day.
What Wizzes You Off: Have you ever driven on the 91 freeway?  Yeah- enough said.
When you’re upset you:  bake, clean, cook, write about it…
Favorite Pet (Black/White):  Is orange closer to black or white?
Biggest Fear:  That my kids will never move out- I’m kidding!  My biggest fear is actually losing my kids.  I’m sure you’ve done this, but I’ll sneak in their room at night and just listen to them breathe.
Best Feature: My eyes
Everyday attitude:  I’m thankful- everyday.  Always. 
What is perfection?:  God.  Other than that, an entire day with my guys.
Guilty pleasure:  Home made baked goods.  I’ll tell you now, I’ve been REALLY indulging in guilt lately.

15 “cool” blogs I’m awarding this “cool” award to:
4.  Callie @ Notes from Naptime
9.  Nikki @ Chef in Training
11.  Tracy @ I’m just a Girl
12.  Angela @ Mommy Time Out

Ok, now enough about me.  Go check out these great bloggers and I’ll talk to you in a bit.

  4. Thank you so much for passing this award on to me. It's much appreciated. Loving your blog! Many blessings,Rosannhttp://www.christiansupermom.com/

  5. I had to laugh about the doc martens. I bought a pair of tennis shoes not long before I got pregnant. After she was born, I could not figure out why I hated to wear them. It wasn't until recently I finally admitted to myself that my shoe sized changed slightly during the pregnancy and that is why I wasn't comfortable in my tennis shoes anymore. I had to break down and buy a new pair of shoes even though the old ones were barely worn. Shanan (new follower)http://yogi-mommy.blogspot.com/
