I’m it!

I am so happy because today I have been tagged with my very first blogger award. Nicole over at Cookies and Carrots has graciously tagged me with the “Stylish Blogger Award.”

I love Nicole’s blog and I am so glad that she tagged me!

There are 4 duties to perform to accept this award:

1.  Make a post + Link back to the person who awarded you this award.
2.  Share 7 things about yourself.
3.  Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers
4.  Contact these bloggers and tell them they’ve won!

So here are 7 things that you didn’t know about me!

  1. I am painfully shy . . . until I get to know you. Once we are friends, I am loyal (almost to a fault) and would do just about anything for you.
  2. My husband is the first (and only) real relationship that I have ever had. I dated others before him, but none that were important. Consequently, my husband is the only man I have ever said “I love you” to (other than my dad of course).
  3. I am obsessed with odd numbers. I don’t like to sit in an even numbered seat at an event and when I (or my husband) am turning up the volume on the television or radio, it MUST be on an odd number. It borders on OCD.
  4. I am scared of escalators. I think I can trace it back to my childhood and an episode of Pink Panther in which he slid right through the teeth at the end of the thing, I know that is incredibly silly, but there it is. Every time I HAVE to go up or down one, I literally have to have my husband hold my hand and talk me through it.
  5. I watch soap operas. Yes, I know they are trashy. But I love them anyway.
  6. I am a crier. I will cry at any sappy commercial, any somewhat emotional moment on a television (or reality) show. I have even been known to cry over books.
  7. I have a form of muscular dystrophy called Charcot Marie Tooth. I don’t like to talk about it and there are a lot of people I know who don’t even know about it. I don’t like to be thought of as handicapped. I have a few physical limitations because of it, but I don’t complain about it, nor do I talk about it. You will hear more complaints about my migraines than this. I have no idea how far it will progress or if there will come a time when I will need a wheelchair. I think about that as little as possible because I don’t want to live my life in fear. I think having this disease as made me the independent person that I am today.

Here are 15 bloggers that I am tagging with this award. This was so hard to do since I have so many great readers. 🙂

  1. Thanks for tagging me 🙂 I love finding out tidbits about bloggers.

    I’m a crier too–tv, movies, sappy moments,etc. just call me miss emotional!

    Funny about the odd numbers, I hate odd numbers, even though my favorite number is 13!

  2. Thank you for the vote! Love your seven things! We have a fear of escalators in common – my boyfriend gives me crap about it relentlessly…

  3. Oh my goodness!! I feel so special!! I am a #6 too! My roommate my freshman year of college told me I have emotional diarrhea. (Not in a hurtful way. I thought it was hilarious.) Doesn’t everybody cry over books?

  4. I still watch Soaps sometimes…I used to be really, really into them, even went to the ABC Soap Convention in Florida in 2004!

  5. It’s always fun to read these. Thanks for tagging me. I’ll fill it out soon! PS – my husband was my first really serious relationship too.

  6. I’m the same way as you but with even numbers! I can’t stand odd numbers, they drive me crazy 🙂

  7. Thank you so much. I love reading your blog. Really appreciate the tagging for the award!!! X

  8. Congrats=love your 7 things!!!!! I have to put the volume on an even number-I picked up the habit from my college roommate who was obsessed with all things even (she’d even re-clean a dish so that she cleaned an even number!)

  9. I am a “cryer” too! Yesterday in English class we watched a movie (Gattaca) and I cried at the end. I think I was the only person. 😕

  10. I love your attitude about #7. Living with limitations in a healthy and positive way can change ones entire outlook on life.

  11. Thanks for the tag!! I’ll work on getting my “7 things” done, but I have to say, many of them align with yours: I’m a total cryer, and instead of being obsessed with odds, I’m obsessed with evens!

  12. I am the same way when it comes to shyness.. I am shy at first but once you get to know me you can’t shut me up haha!

  13. Thank you so much for tagging me! You are so sweet, and it truly made my day 🙂

    Have a great afternoon!

  14. Yay, love learning more about you! My husband and I have a similar relationship! We have been together for 10+ years and married for 2+!

  15. Loved learning more things about you! I’m scared of elevators, too! It jsut started a few years ago, but I’m always afraid I’m going to get stuck in one of them.
