Versatile Blogger Award

I was given blog awards by both Courtney and Rikki! Thank you ladies, you are two of my favorite people in this whole wide world.
The rules are that you have to list 7 things about yourself and nominate 15 other bloggers.

Here are my 7 Facts:

1. I tried to dread my hair about a month and a half after John was born. I was so excited but it turned out soooo bad, all loose and the wax went on wrong. Plus it took FOREVER and with a 6 week old at home and major sleep deprivation it was a disaster. I literally took kitchen sheers to my head in frustration. However, as soon as I have the funds to get them done professionally, I am getting those bad boys put back in.

2. I am deathly afraid of cockroaches. Like, run out of a room screaming afraid.

3. I hate talking on the phone more than just about anything. I will text all day long, but I don't like to chat over the phone. Joshua, on the other hand is a gabber, so I am always trying to find nice ways to end phone conversations with him quickly.

4. I only have half a uterus. It is a birth defect and a rare one at that. Every time I went to the hospital while I was pregnant the nurses would ask me if I meant I had a bicornate uterus, which I don't, and how I ended up with only half. It got super irritating and I always felt like they were looking at me as if I had no idea what I was talking about.

5. I am almost exactly the opposite of who I was in high school. I like who I am now so much better.

6. I could eat avocados every day for the rest of my life and never get tired of them.

7. I hate to wear socks.

Ok, I had sort of a difficult time thinking of 7 interesting things. I hope other people's are more interesting :)

I nominate anyone who wants to share 7 things about themselves! If you haven't come up with your list of 7 do it now! :)

Happy Tuesday :)


  1. I hate talking on the phone too. My mom is the same way. We text each other and never talk on the phone. People think that's weird. Thank gawd for texting!!

  2. oh man i used to have dreads about three years ago, they were orange. next time you are at my house i will show you photos.

  3. Guh! See this is why we like each other so much!
    I LOATHE talking on the phone; I text everyone about everything but if they call I usually dont answer. They think its kinda mean but I think its practical.
    If I could give you my organs you could have them. It's pretty clear that I won't be using them and I know you want another kiddo sometime soonish.
    I haven't worn socks in years and years and years. I hate them and yes- I even brave Chicago winters without them. Socks are for pussies. There- I said it.

  4. haha I hate talking on the phone too, it usually goes straight to voicemail if someone calls. Texting is my most favorite. Oh and I LOVE avocados, I make salads that I call avocado salad bc I use so much avocado it takes place of the lettuce. MMMM so good!

  5. I'm way too modest to nominate my awesome self, lol - besides, I don't know 15 other people... I know about 3 (who blog).

    When I was 17 I had a room mate who hated talking on the phone - I thought she was INSANE (and I could never get a hold of her)! Now, we haven't had a home phone in years. Kids make conversations that you can't pause in the middle of very frustrating and after living with Brett for the past 9 years we have far less phone conversations than we did in High School.
