A First


Gracious sakes, people!

The Beautiful Blogger Award has been bestowed on this tiny, humble blog by Karen!

I want to thank all of you out there, my wonderful blog readers, for this award! I want to thank my dogs for their love and affection.  I'd like to thank my socks for keeping my feet warm..........

Oh! Sorry......I was writing my acceptance speech and went off on a rabbit trail there.....

All I have to do for this award is to post about 7 quirks I have.

Only 7???
 It's going to be hard to pick only seven of my idiosyncrasies...
But I'll try.

1.  I hate the sound of silverware scraping against teeth during a meal.  It's akin to how some people feel when fingernails are scraped down a chalkboard.

2.  I will never, NEVER like black licorice.  Sorry, Honey!

3.  I didn't get my driver's license till I was 20.  What's more pathetic is that it was THREE DAYS before my wedding! What can I say, I lead a sheltered life back then.....

4.  When Samantha (Baby #3) was born, I kissed her right on the forehead as soon as they put her on my tummy.  Yep.  I kissed her, cottage cheesy, gooey and bloody though she was.  I was just so relieved and happy that she was finally here. I've never done that with any of my other babies.

5.  When I was pregnant with Lucie, I craved egg rolls.  But they couldn't be just any ol' egg rolls.  They had to be from a local Chinese joint that my husband delivers mail to.  And I craved BBQ SAUCE with them.  Ugh.  And no, I never ate the two together!

6.  I love the taste of apple cider vinegar.  I sometimes crave it.  

7.  I've never been on a roller coaster in my life.  Ever.  And I'm PROUD to say that!

So there you have it.  I could go on and on about all my bizarre ways.

But you don't have the time and I'd hate to bore you to tears!!!

Okay what is it with our weird cravings when we are pregnant?

And I do not like roller coasters either. My husband and I went to Disneyworld for our honeymoon (I know, what a place to go on your honeymoon? But it was romantic) and the poor fellow had noone to ride rides with. Now my kids love all the scary rides and ride them all with him while I am down on the ground safe and sound.

Great and funny list! I loved getting to know you better!

And one more thing we have in common--I HATE black licorice! Yuck!

Loved your list! I also crave a/c vinegar at times (even when I'm not preg) - must be something in it.
Hope you are enjoying your day

I didn't get my license until I was 22. It was after I got married, and my poor newleywed husband had to teach me. I don't recommend it for young couples. I wasn't sheltered before that, I just lived in the city and rode the bus to work and had family and friends to drive me anywhere I needed to go.
