While I was away

My bud, Jenn over at Crazy Shenanigans tagged me for the Kreativ Blogger Award.
I love her blog; she's the best!! I am very glad to be able to call her a friend, and that I was given the opportunity to get to know her better! Thanks for the love.

I love awards!

Here's what I gotta do:
1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award. {DONE}
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog. {DONE}
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award. {DONE}
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might not know.
5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they have been nominated.
Onto the things you may or may not know bout lil' ol' me!
(1) I make lists, ALL. THE. TIME. Just to ensure that I'm organized and don't forget to do anything.
(2) LOVE General Hospital. It's the one day-time soap that I have to watch. I was sucked into the nonsense thankss to my mother!! At least, I didn't get hooked on the other 2 ABC soaps.
(3) I believe that when times get tough that people have to dig down deep, suck it up and drive on. When you think that you are breaking and have nothing left to give; there is ALWAYS more. You cannot allow yourself to break or give up you MUST not give yourself another option -- just do it (like Nike says).
You and I, alike have more strength than we/you know.
(4) Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I much prefer to be cold over hot! I feel you can always cuddle up in a blanket but it isn't as easy to just strip down and remove layers.
(5) I always thought of myself as an independent kind of gal. That I didn't need a man or anyone else to take care of me. Well, when I left my job almost a year ago (Oct 08) my feelings on the subject have changed. When I couldn't find a job I began to question myself. Then I realized that was SILLY! I am still independent and secure in myself. None of that has to change, simply because I don't have a job. A source of income. While making money is necessary for life's basic needs, I refuse to define myself based on how much money I make; or don't make.
I have discovered that I enjoy being at home. Taking care of all the mundane goings-ons. I found peace in taking care of my hubs, the house, the bills, ect.
(6) Although now isn't the time for babies I've sort of all ready named them. :) lol
Girl: Isabella Brooke
[I'm on the fense about this. While the names work well together, our last name starts with an "S". That would make her initials: IBS = Irrital Bowel Syndrome. NO THANKS!]
Boy: Kellan
something else...
My familia has told me they don't like this name. That it's too feminat. That it sounds like "Kelly" or "Helen" which also happens to be my grandmother's name.
I like it... But all of the family's bad-mouthing of this name has put a bad taste in my mouth about it. So now I'm torn, and semi coming up with something else. :)
(7) Coming up with these 7 things has been kinda difficult for me. Maybe it's because I'm focused on posting more pictures from my vacation!

Now, I have to tag 7 other bloggers! :)
