I have no excuses

except to say that i'm so sorry it took me so long to post about receiving the Liebster Award! Yes, I could come up with some lamo excuse about how I have 5 kids and i'm busy and blah, blah, blah, but judging by the amount of time I spend on Twitter and Facebook, my friends will call BS on that one! So, i'm apologizing now for my lack of courtesy because I honestly am thrilled that some of you think i'm even worthy enough to receive this! I know i'm probably committing another cardinal sin by mentioning everyone that has given me one all on one post, but do you really want 3 almost identical blog posts hogging up your blog feed? I didn't think so :)    So here goes! (and I really hope i'm doing this right).

First off i'd like to give a big thank you to Happy Little Feet because she's the first blogger who gave me this awesome award!

11 Facts about me: 

1. I love the Roseanne show and have watched every single episode probably hundreds of times. 

2. I love Dutch Bros Coffee. I always get the white chocolate caramel mocha. No Starbucks for this gal! 

3. I suck at math.  I mean really suck! I still count basic math on my hands. Thank goodness for the calculator on my iphone!

5. I love 80's music and techno. My favorite bands are Depeche Mode and M83. 

6. I'm afraid of dogs. Completely, totally terrified. We were a cat family growing up, and always had at least 5 cats at a time. I know it explains a lot about my weirdness right? 

7. I have a chronic health condition called Interstitial Cystitis. 

8. I'm a Diet Coke fanatic. I like Diet Pepsi too, but Diet Coke is my fave.

This blog actually used to be about my son Peanut, but I re-birthed it into a humor blog and moved his posts to a private blog.
