you may not know...

Thanks, B.jane brewing, for the Kreativ Blogger nomination!
If you don't already, you should go read her blog! She's fun!

Here are the rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people may not know.
5. Nominate Kreativ Bloggers.
6. Post links to the blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they’ve been nominated

So 7 we go.
1. I used to teach preschool, but what I really want to do is teach elementary school. I'm over halfway to my BA. Why haven't I finished school after almost 10 years? Oh yeah, three kids.
2. Besides teaching, my past jobs have included hauling trees around at a Christmas tree farm (age 15-16), directing at a paint-your-own pottery studio (age 15-19), a very brief retail experience at Pier One (age 18), and custom painting for interior design companies off and on for the past 10 years.
3. I'm deathly afraid of throwing up, and it has been over 14 years since I have done so (knock on wood). I'd rather deliver my kids over again than throw up. And speaking of fears, don't ever expect me to get in an elevator. Ever.
4. I still drive the same Jetta I bought eight years ago (and three kids later), because I refuse to have a car payment.
5. Once I started sewing, my cooking took a huge blow. Sorry, family.
6. I almost never go to bed before 1am.
7. I enjoy all music, but I listen to 60's on Sirius all day long, unless it's December, when I have the Christmas station on 24/7.

Okay, enough about me...
I can't wait to hear juicy info from:

Heather at Angel Face Designs
Tegan at Baby Valone
Erin at Bringing Up Burns
Jessica at Brixton Lane
Mel at The Larson Lingo

{Who you should all be following already!}

Happy Wednesday!

Tegan and Tage said...

Aw, you're so sweet-- this will be fun! Man, I can't believe you still have the Jetta.

Heather :: Angel Face Designs :: said...

Thanks, lady! I'm with you on #3 although with this pregnancy my up-chuck reflex has been out of control. Before that, though it had been at least ten years!

B.jane said...

OMGosh..thats so funny! I thought I was the only one that counted the years from the last throw up. I HATE it tooo. If someone has a virus..I go to bed praying I don't get it. NOthing Worse!!!!!! lol

mel said...

Thanks Heather! Lots in common! I stay up until midnight every night. And, I can totally help you with your elementary teaching stuff, I still have most of my work from when I got my credential! And, I hate barfing also. I got over that pretty quickly with my pregnancies since I barfed 2-3 times a DAY for the first 24 weeks. ugh. I had a Jetta for 6 years until I got preggo with Kate, then I got a Tahoe. (only 1 more year of a car payment...)
Off to check out some of the other blogs you mentioned!

The world is getting smaller! Angel Face Designs donated a necklace for the ILPS auctions this summer =) It was one of the few items I actually bid on for myself!
And I am working really hard at getting to bed before 1:00am!

kkmom said...

That was too funny!I remember visiting you at all those jobs when we were in high school!And you are still afraid of the throwing up thing?! No cheescake for you!
Cute post.
Yes, go finish school!!!

JackieD said...

i think staying up late runs in the family, i am lucky if i get to bed before 2 and zoey is also a night owl. i have to fight to get her to sleep by midnight and she wakes up between 10 and noon!
i blame genetics.

Jill said...

I'm right there with you on #3! and I'm the same on my car- it's paid for- gets me from point A to B- can't ask for much more! :)
Have a Blessed day!

O.k., I'm with you on the throwing up. I had you beat by 6 years until we got the Norovirus and believe me I made up for lost time...yuck! Oh, and I too listen to the Christmas station 24/7 during the holidays. Drives David nuts!
