A special thanks to Kari and Elise for giving me another award!
Go check out their blogs, they are awesome!

Here are the rules:
*to thank the person that gave you the award....check
*to tell you 7 facts about me :)...
*give the award to 7 wonderful bloggers that I just love
*leave a comment and tell the 7 bloggers that I am giving them an award

Here are 7 facts about me... they may be repeated from my last award because it took me forever to think of those! I am boring, what can I say?

I am the world's greatest procrastinator!!! 
(example: I should be writing a paper right now...Boring...No Thanks!)

I no longer have an appendix...three weeks and counting! 

I have a special place in my heart for babies and can't wait to have my own.

I am addicted to magazines. I can't help it, I obsessed! I cannot go to Walmart, Sam's Club or the grocery store without buying them.

I have extremely scary curly hair! The kids have been known to call me Madusa! 

Thanks to my scary curly hair, I have a very strict hair routine.
- I only wash my hair every 3 to 4 days...sorry, this grosses some people out but that is just the way it is!
-When I do wash my hair, I try to do it an night. If not it can be very large and very 80's (if ya know what I mean). I call it my "fro!"
- Sometimes I go to bed with it wet (hence the Madusa name!), sometimes I dry it. I usually leave it in a towel for 30 minutes (apply like 50 different kinds of products!) then I use a very special hair dryer.
- Next, I section it off and use either my Instyler or a large curling iron
- Finally, I pray that it will look descent enough for me to step out of my door and face the day...oh, and that it doesn't rain since I just spent an hour making my hair straight!
It's not easy being a girl, but someone has to do it!
(I am laughing so hard at my self right now for sharing this...who cares about what I do to my hair??? I know, I'm sorry!)

I love my blog! I love all the blogs I read daily! I love all of my followers and sweet blogging friends! Thanks girls!
