Thursday's Treasure

Well, what a treat to be nominated for this award by the ultra kind Clara from Clara's Crochet Room! Now I get to share 7 random facts about myself! Let's see... in no particular order...
1. I've ridden in a hot air balloon.
2. I've had 2 body parts pierced besides my ears... these have both been abandoned for years!
3. My biggest pet peeve is tailgating/aggressive driving.
4. I'm an extreme night owl O_O
5. I was engaged to someone else besides my husband (not at the same time!)
6. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican- and authentic mom and pop diner fare.
7. Some of my first jobs, in high school and college, were Long John Silver's cashier, shoe saleswoman, Dominos Pizza delivery girl, and Marriot restaurant waitress. Nothing topped the polyester pirate hat from LJS, though.
Now I know it can be difficult to keep up with blog awards, so I am a no-pressure nominator. I'd love to see 7 facts about anyone who is reading this! If you would like to share some things about yourself on your blog, please let me know so that I can be sure to read them!

Ooh, Jennie, sounds like you had a bit of a wild past! I enjoyed this post, but don't think I could come up with 7 interesting things about myself!

Congrats on your blogger award.

Okay, spill it, what two other body parts were pierced? :o)

I'm with ribbon, I can't come up with 7 interesting items about myself but if you want, you could do the other blog I'm involved with, between six people, I bet we could come up with a total of seven and it might be fun to learn more about the others!

(I see my word verification is clograt!)

Okay, inspired by Sahara's Heart, here goes my pathetic list:

1. I considered shaving my head.
2. Frustrated, I almost gave up on crocheting (gasp) before I finally figured it out.
3. We just put in an inground pool in November.
4. I have very ugly hands.
5. I won't go out without my eyes on!
6. I weigh under 100 lbs (don't pick on me).

Absolutely loved your post!! It's ever so fun to read all those little "tidbits" about one's child...especially the ones you didn't know about!! :)

Congratulations on your award!
