My sweet friend Megan Card nominated me for a Sunshine award – this is the first time I have ever been nominated for a blog award.  The first thing I need to do is give you 11 random facts about me, answer questions from Megan and then nominate a few of my favorite bloggers to receive the Sunshine award and spread the love.

Random Facts…

  1. I HATE sweet tea!  Every body thinks that if you are from Texas that you are suppose to like sweet tea but I think it is so disgusting.
  2. When I was in 3rd grade a little boy stuck a sharp pencil in my leg and I still have the mark to prove it happened.
  3. I love Big Red and Paydays (they are my weaknesses).
  4. At one point of my college career at Texas A&M I was there with my brother and 3 of my cousins.  We had a lot of fun together.
  5. I can play the piano.
  6. I love to eat grilled cheese sandwiches with miracle whip.
  7. I like to cross stitch.
  8. I won the State Competition of Bible Drill when I was in elementary school.
  9. I listen to all types of music – Christian, Country, Techno, Rock, etc…
  10. My husband and I meet at a tattoo parlor.
  11. My husband planned a trip to NYC and proposed to me on a special bridge in Central Park.

Questions from Megan…
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I would move to London.  This almost became a reality for my family about a month ago.  I would love to raise our girls overseas for 3 to 4 years and bring them back to the US around 4th or 5th grade.  If we were in London there would not be a language barrier and we would be able to experience so many new things and travel to some amazing places.

Which do you prefer, coffee or tea?
Coffee – with lots of cream and splenda!

What is your most embarrassing memory?
I am very clumsy so I have a lot of stories.  One that sticks out is when I wasn’t paying attention and I walked into a poll and then tried to pretend like it didn’t happen.  However, everyone in the parking lot saw me and they were laughing.

Cats or dogs?
DOGS!  I have two dogs (Maggie and Jack – pugs).  Cats give me the creeps.

If failure were not an option, what would your dream job be and why?
I know this is crazy but if someone would pay me to be a stay-at-home-mom I would quit my job today!  I would love to be home when my girls get home from school, be involved in their schools, and always have a clean house and dinner on the table every day.  I can dream right???
