7 Facts Blog Award

I received this blog award from my friend Kimmie at Little Carrigan. Thanks Kimmie!
(I'm adding in some pics of Ryan from today to keep the grandparents happy, haha!)

So I've got to come up with 7 random facts about myself. So here goes!

1. I HATE cooking but I LOVE to bake! The worst part of my week is figuring out what to fix for dinner. (I plan out dinner for the week on Sunday) I'm not a very good cook at all so I think that's why I don't like it. I do love to bake and love making cakes, cookies, and other desserts.

2. My favorite show on TV is The Amazing Race. I love it! It's different every season and I love watching the teams work together. It's so neat seeing all the different countries as well. My other favorite show is The Bachelor! I watch it every season and always get into the drama, ha! I have watched every season except for the first one.

3. I have never had chicken pox! I didn't get them as a kid and even though I've been exposed many times I have never gotten it. Before I got pregnant with Ryan my OB recommended I get the vaccine so I did and hopefully now will never get it.

4. I love miniature dachshunds. My neighbors growing up had a mini doxie name Molly and I just loved her. When I became and adult I knew I wanted a dachshund. I got Annabelle almost 6 years ago this spring when I moved to PA. Then we got Gracie 4 years ago soon after we got married. They can drive me nuts but I love them so much! They are our first babies!
5. I have a love/hate relationship with running. I started running to lose the baby weight after I had Ryan. I've heard Jillian Michael's say that the key to losing weight is running so I jumped on the treadmill and slowing started building up my endurance to run farther and farther. I love the feeling I get after running but I definitely have to push myself to keep going.

6. I am loving my new Kindle! I enjoy being able to take it anywhere and it really looks like real pages on a book. Right now I'm ready Candace Cameron Bure's Reshaping It All and it's really great. I am excited to start another fun fiction book when I finish.

7. I absolutely love being a stay at home mom! I always knew I wanted to stay home and raise my kids and I am SO blessed to have the opportunity to do that! I have the best husband in the world who works hard so that I can live out my dream of stay home with our kiddos.

Whew! These took me a little longer than I thought! I am passing along this award to:

Tiffany at Mom's the Word (We grew up in the same youth group in Memphis and now are friends here in Cincy)
Amanda at Better Than Life (We were sorority sisters in college)
Meg at Nathan & Meg (We were also sorority sisters in college)
Angela at The Grace Family (We went to high school together)
Amber at The Flenniken Family (We met through a mutual friend and we keep up through our blogs now)

And lastly I must wish my sweet daddy a very happy birthday today!!!! Happy birthday Dad! We love you so much!!!!
