Liebster Award

My friend Carly told me about the Liebster Award which is something within the blogging community.  I had never heard of it before, but it is a good way to bring attention to small blogs.  So, here I go to play along in the fun!

11 Randoms:

  1. I had my tongue pierced when I was 18.   
  2. I take baths instead of showers.
  3. My husband and I got engaged after only dating for 9 months.  We will celebrate our 4 year anniversary in January.
  4. I teach children how to read, but become discouraged because of their lack of interest or excitement for it.
  5. My sister and I grew up wearing old man pants, 80s t-shirts, and other thrift store finds.  We grew up to be Born-wearing, crossover-driving, farm/ranch wives. 
  6. Wally Lamb is one of my favorite authors.
  7. It breaks my heart when I see people who are deliberately mean to others.
  8. Diet Coke in a can is one of my weaknesses.

  10. Pickleball is the only “sport” I have ever been much good at.
