Awesome Blogger

Stacy over at SLMPeterson has gifted me with an award. An Awesome blogger award.
 The rules are I get to share seven things about myself that you might not know and then give it to those blogs I think are awesome.
So here goes:
  1. I have dexterous toes.  I can pick things up with them and if I tried really hard I bet I could write with them.  Oddly, Nick thinks this is a bit weird, but Turbo can do the same thing with his toes.
  2. I love reading true crime books, most especially the short story anthologies.  I love reading about how the bad guys were caught.
  3. I love cats.  Most particularly my cat Piper.  She is one of those cats that will demand attention, but is relatively patient with little boy love too.
  4. I like to do research--digging into libraries or archives.  If I had it to do over I think I would have pursued a library science degree so I could work in a library.
  5. I have a good memory for numbers.  Phone numbers, codes for various jobs, things like that.
  6. I like to scrap book--it is the one creative thing I am good at--but have not done it for about 4 or 5 years now.
  7. I like old movies--the Thin Man series, old musicals like Hello Dolly, the Topper movies, these are great fun to watch.  I have a harder time with new movies, I've been disappointed too many times.
And now for who to pass this on to:
Krista at Mommy Doesn't Wrestle
Amanda at The Most Fabulous News
Vanessa at for the Soul


  1. Cool facts about yourself. I think that toe thing is pretty neat, actually. My cat is also an attention whore but very patient when it comes to being manhandled by my 15 year old, so it's ok.

    Congrats on the award!

  2. Awww, thanks, your so sweet!! You do deserve the awesome blog award! Have you tried digital scrapbooking? I'm quite addicted to it right now, so much easier for me to whip out my laptop and scrapbook digitally than get out all my papers, glue, stickers, scissors and try and scrap it up with the kids running around.

  3. Thanks so much for the award! We mommies of boys need to stick together! :-)

    I also have quite dexterous toes! Or rather "monkey feet" as Daddio refers to them. They weird him out too. I also love scrapbooking, but haven't really found the time or place to dig mine out again since having the boys. One day...

  4. Congrats! :D

    I love older movies, too, especially the black and white ones (like His Gal Friday and It Happened One Night). To me, the dialogue is wittier and faster, the female characters are stronger and sassy, and the male characters can be utterly charming even if physically not handsome. :)

  5. Thanks, so much! My first blog award, you're awesome! I totally agree with your take on old movies, they never let you down, I guess their greatness is tried and true :)

    Thanks Vandy!

  6. Congrats! My toes are the same, I can even pinch with them :)

  7. It's always fun learning new things about bloggy peeps. :)
    I pick up stuff with my toes too... maybe this is a mom thing because our hands aer always full LOL.


I love to get comments! They make my heart go pitter-pat! Go on comment--I'll do my best to go give your blog some love too!
