One Lovely Blog Award

One Lovely Blog Award

I'd like to take this moment to thank the academy Dawn at Dawn's Disaster for nominating me for this award! I am new to this environment and feel extremely blessed to have made so many amazing connections in a short span of time. I consider myself honored. Alright, now to the nitty-gritty of the award~

Rules to follow:
*Include the blog award in your post (check)
*Thank the person who nominated you (check)
*Nominate 5 people and let them know you have done so
*Tell 7 random things about yourself

Drum roll please ... and the NOMINEES ARE:
Earning My Cape (This site is SUPER  ...  pun intended)
The Good Long Road  (Like her, I believe our Kiddos would be great friends)
Crayon Freckles (She thinks outside the crayon box)
H is for Homeschooling (She has really neat activities)

Living Life Intentionally (Just love it!)

7 Totally random things about me.... hum....
1. I was kicked out of Grad School with only 1 semester lacking. I had been working toward my Ph.D. in entomology when I was bitten by a spider in the lab. Apparently, I was in the hospital too long for the school and I was sent a certified letter letting me know of my dismissal! Yeah, years later I am still reeling over that one.
2. I am a cancer survivor! In my mid-20's I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma.I had 6 months of chemo and 24 radiation treatments. The cure almost killed me but I have now been in remission for over 15 years!
3. I love the color purple. The hue love runs in my family. My Dad, brother, sister love it too. However, I would have to give the"Take it to the Extreme" award to my NaNa. She had a double purple door on her house. She was a little more (shall we say) eccentric than the rest of us.
4. I can't stand to hear anyone flick their fingernails! Don't know why, but there it is!
5. I love to travel. Until I started college, my mom and I moved every two years. I believe she fostered some gypsy blood in me. Always ready for a road trip...
6. NEVER NEVER NEVER thought I would start blogging!
7. I want a new camera. I am a shutter bug and have outgrown the point and shoot that I currently own!
