How Well Do You Know Me?....Or Should it Be: How Well Do I Know Myself?

Melinda from Melinda's Fabric Fancies gave me this award. She is one of the most talented women I know and I LOVE her work!! I admire Melinda for her strength and determination and she is always a great friend!

1. Thank the person who gave this to you.
2. copy the logo and place it on your blog. to the person who nominated you.
4. name seven things about yourself no one would really know.

Okay, first of all, I have a really hard time thinking of things about myself. I consider myself a pretty boring person and I usually blog about whatever is going on in my life already. So I have been thinking about this pretty hard.

  1. Okay, this may surprise some of you. Last Saturday my daughter, Lexie and her friend Amber, took me out for a late birthday "Girls Day Out" and guess what we did???? They took me to get my lip pierced!

  2. I also have my nose pierced. My nose is on the right side and my upper lip is on the left. Earl wasn't thrilled at all with my piercing and neither was my mom. I love it though and it is something that I have wanted to do for a long time now. Thanks Lexie and Amber!!

  3. I would love to write a book someday. A children's book or a funny adult book.

  4. I am not a very social person. I never know what to say and end up talking to much about nothing.

  5. I wish I could dance.

  6. I LOVE westerns!

  7. I got a new pair of glasses a couple of months ago and only had them a month before I LOST them. I can't find them anywhere! Even though they changed my RX I still was taking them off for up close stuff and I don't know where I left them. I have looked everywhere I can think of and still can't find them. Actually, I loose a lot of stuff! So here are 7 things about me that may or may not interest you.

I hate passing on award because I never know who to pass them on to.

  1. I think I will start with Val from Life's Little Garden
  2. and then go to Kelly from Kelly's Recipes for Life
  3. Amber from Infertility is a Bitch
  4. I'll be back and finish....Jace is crying and needs me to hold him. He has a little cold.

I enjoyed reading this Sherry. You are not a boring person at all. I love reading your blog and seeing all your crafts and what's going on in your part of the world. You are so brave getting the piercings. I don't even have my ears pierced!
Hope you are having a lovely Thursday.
