The One with the Blog Award

I've been nominated for my very first blog award!

Thank you, Mel, for the nod! You can find her at her super-cute blog Life as a New Wife.

As part of the nomination, I'm supposed to list 10 interesting facts about myself. You all know I'm already crazy, so let's see what else we can add to the mix.

1. I'm a voracious reader. I know spome people might think it's nerdy, but books are just about the best thing in the world. Thanks mom (a librarian!), for introducing me to the written word. I still remember her reading "Pat the Bunny" to me when I was itty bitty. That's when the obsession started. Seriously. Mom would have to ground me from reading just so I would get my chores done. Matt loves that I love to read - more time for him to watch Sports Center.

2. I love to travel and experience other cultures, and I'm so happy I married a guy who loves to travel as well. I think I could go someplace different every month. The world is such a big, exciting place, and we only get this one life here on earth - why not experience it to the fullest? I would hate to die and not ever know what Austria or Brazil or Poland looks like.

3. Speaking of Poland...I'm Polish. Yep. That's where my addiction to anything carbohydrate and doughy and sugary comes from.

4. I hate eggs. I have a tendancy to refer to them as aborted chickens, and that little white glob that's usually in eggs is the part of the baby chick that tried to form but didn't have a chance. I have to force myself to eat them because I know the whites are a low-calorie major source of protein, but they make me gag.

5. Most everyone knows this, but it's still fun to bring into conversations: I grew up in a funeral home. Our halloween parties rocked.

6. I secretly like hokey tv shows on TLC like "The Little Couple" and "19 Kids and Counting."

7. I'm terrified of fish and everything else that swims in open bodies of water. I get panic attacks when I swim at the Lake or go near the ocean. When Matt and I were in Florida and we saw some jellyfish washed up on the beach, I swore I could feel them crawling all over me.

8. I love to sing and I love to play the piano. I just can't do both at the same time very well.

9. I'm working on my third degree. BA in English, Master's in Business, and now I'm going for my BS in Nursing. I would really like to be a full-time student - there's so many things out there to learn, and I'm a big advocate of knowledge and furthering your education. Fulfill your potential!

10. I'm musical and a bookworm. My husband is all sports. Yet we have an amazing marriage and somehow make everything work. It's not without it's tough days, but for the most part we have a lot of fun. He puts up with my reading and singing around the house, while I try to overlook the fact that he can recall random sports stats from years ago and not what he went to the grocery store for five minutes ago.
