The Lemonade Award

My friend Julie over at Momma4Real gave me the
Lemonade award last month and I'm just getting
around to posting about it! Sorry Julie!!
Thank you so much!!

The way this award works is:

1. Thank the giver of the award and link to their blog.
2. List 5 things about yourself.
3. Link 5 new recipients and notify them.

So...5 things about me...

1. I've always liked scary stuff. The first books I
bought on my own were Christopher Pike.
{tell me I'm not the only one who knows who he is}
I love supernatural stories...
vampires, ghosts, werewolves, vampires.

2. If life had gone according to my plan, I'd be living in
New York right now, singing in a Broadway show. When
I graduated I wanted nothing more than to be Eponine
in Les Miserables. I had the drama/vocal scholarship to
Northwestern State University (where I recently found out I
only missed meeting Kimber there by a year!! How cool would
that have been?? I only attended about 3 months.)
My plan, obviously, was not God's plan.
Thank you, Lord. :)
I am, however, halfway through my senior year of a music
ed degree with an emphasis in voice, but I haven't attended
school since around 2001. As of right now I have no real
desire to go back and finish it. My desire is to finish having
babies and raise my family. Then maybe I'll go back.
I do, however, miss the singing.

3. I don't like to take baths.
Wait-let me rephrase.
I don't like to bathe.
Good grief...that's not any better...
Let me try again.
I don't like bathing in the bathtub.
I love a hot soak in the tub, but then I wash my hair,
put the conditioner in to sit while I soap up. Then I
get in the shower to rinse off. I just can't stand knowing
I'm rinsing off in the same yuck I was trying to wash
off to begin with!

4. I'm a painfully picky eater. And I hate it. I don't like most
veggies or any seafood. Paul says my
tastebuds don't work right, but I say they work too well.
I think they're hyper-sensitive and I taste everything
TOO well. My overworking sense of smell doesn't help.
Things like broccoli or seafood smell so strongly that I
can't even put them to my mouth. I try to taste new things.
Alot of it just tastes bad to me.

5. I belly dance.
Are you laughing?? Stop laughing!
I didn't say I was any good at it, but I do take lessons.
My friend Konnie and I have taken 4 or 5 semesters
worth. It's fun time by ourselves, plus it's a workout,
and you can't help but feel sexy when you're moving
your various body parts like that! I highly recommend it.
And my picks are:

3. Erica at Scottsville
5. Mimi at He & Me + 3


P.S. I tried to post this way earlier but Blogger was wiggin'
out and wouldn't publish or save!

Konnie said...

Speaking of belly dance, I so have a video of us in one of our last belly dance classes that i could post to my blog! lol! :)
I still remember several years ago sitting at McDonald's and they put onions on your burger and you didn't know, to thinkabout the look on your face CRACKS ME UP! you gagged repeatedly. :)

I HATE baths too! Just the thought of soaking in my own flith just grosses me out! I didn't know you were so close to getting your degree...I feel the same way about working though! I would much rather be at home with the kiddos! Thanks for passing this one on to me!

He & Me + 3 said...

I hate taking baths too. I used to like scary stuff...now it is just, well, scary. LOL I don't like seafood either. YUCK.
Thanks for the award and congrats to you too.

I hate baths too! In fact, I have mostly only bathed my kiddos in the shower except when they were itty bitty.

Bellydancing = awesome!
