My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)


Award Time!

Thanks to Tracy at Just Being Who I Am for giving me this award, I truly appreciate it!
It looks like I list 7 things about myself that you may not know, and then pass on the award to 5 deserving bloggers!
Seven Things You May Not Know About Me
  1. I get anxiety over the stupidest things.. And the things that would cause anxiety in NORMAL people, don't bother me at all.
  2. I have a bit of a lead foot.   While I was super-morbidly obese, I was always able to get out of getting a ticket.  Since losing all of the weight, I get a ticket every time.  LOL
  3. I have 3 half brothers from my dad's first marriage.  I haven't talked to any of them in ages.
  4. My mom is one of 10 children, so needless to say, I have a HUGE extended family.   
  5. Ever since I got my gallbladder removed, I can't eat popcorn, nuts, or extremely spicy foods without paying the price.    I miss popcorn!
  6. I rarely wear shorts or dresses because my legs are so pale.  I'm afraid they will cause aircraft interference and I'll be featured on the news! :( 
  7. I have some Skechers 4 Wheeler skates, and I want to go practice so I don't fall on my ass in front of my boyfriend! hehe
Now the hard part - awarding this to only 5 of my fellow bloggers?   ACK!   I wish I could list you all... normally I'd cheat and say, EVERYONE wins, but I'd like to feature some blogs that you may enjoy following as well!
In no particular order:
Kim at Knitten Kittens
Heather at Heather's Roller Coaster Journey
Kristin at Bringing Pretty Back
Falon at She's Done Lost It - And it's her birthday today too! Happy Birthday, Falon!
Rachel at Randomness with Rachel

There are so many more I'd love to feature! 

Anyway, I hope you all have a Happy Monday! :)
