An Award & Giveaways

First I want to say a big THANK YOU to Go East Memphis Mama for passing this award on to me! Girl I LOVE your blog!

Now, for the rules. I have to list 10 interesting facts about myself (yeah, good luck with that), and then pass the award on to 10 bloggers. Now I can't promise that these things will be interesting but I will try!
1. I have two birth marks on my abdomen that are the result of my mother frying chicken and getting popped with the grease when she was pregnant with me. No kidding, true story. Freaky, huh?
2. I do not wear make-up unless I think I have to, meaning I do not wear make-up to work and only wear it on the weekends if I am going somewhere and even then only some of the time. Should I wear make-up so I don't look dead? Probably! I'm just too lazy to fuss with it because my hair takes so darn long to dry and flat iron.
3. When I go shopping, if there is a section for pet stuff, I ALWAYS have to check it out even if I don't buy anything. It's a compulsion (or obsession) really.
4. I hate driving. It stresses me out WAY too much and I have serious road rage so I just prefer to let hubby do the driving when we are together.
5. I have natural french tips. Don't believe me? Here's photographic proof:
I left then unfiled just for you to show you they are indeed my real nails.

6. I have progressively gotten clumsier as I have gotten older. I went from a very coordinated child and teenager to someone who walks into walls. :Sigh:
7. I have freakishly long toes. They look like fingers! All of my toes are as long as my big toe or longer except for my pinky toe. I would take a picture but I am badly in need of a pedicure.
8. I met my husband when I was 13 years old and we have been together since.
9. I am a HUGE advocate of canine car safety.
10. I love photography. I love taking pictures (with a camera that isn't a POS), and looking at brilliant pictures to get ideas. I took a black & white photography class in college in which we developed our own film and prints. It was AWESOME!

I am passing this award on to all of my followers who do not already have this award. If you want this award, feel free to take it and post away!

In the last awards post I mentioned as one of my facts that I have naturally curly hair. Several of you wanted to see photographic evidence of this phenomenon, so here ya go! This was after a long day of work and running my hands through my hair in frustration so it is a little limp but you get the idea.

Now onto the giveaways! Wow there are so many in preparation for the holidays! First I want to tell you about the giveaway going on over at It Ain't Always Pretty But It's Real.

Congrats on the award, it's very pretty! And so is your wedding ring. If I ever get married, I want a big rock like that!

Lucky you, you're pretty enough that you don't need makeup. I wear it because I used to be a cosmetologist. When I went to beauty school, we were strongly encouraged to wear it and I just got used to it. I only wear it if I'm going out somewhere special or to work, not around the house or hanging out with friends or family.

I always look at the pet section too. You just never know when you might find something you need!

I've gotten clumsier as I've gotten older too.

I'm sooooooo jealous of your hair! I have to pay to have mine look like that! One side of my hair is very straight, the other is wavy. It looks weird if I just let it air dry.

Thanks for the info on all the giveaways. I love free stuff! Will have to check them out.

Sorry this comment is so long, didnt' intend for it to be but I guess I just had so much to say!

Southern Savvy said...

I was too busy looking at your beautiful ring to notice your nails! LOL

Lucky! If I left the house w/o make up I think I would scare animals and small children:)

I can't go to the store and look at the pet Isle without buying something my dogs totally don't need. Usually they get little one dollar toys that are lost within 15 mintues.

I'm totally jealous of your nails!!
