It's only Tuesday.

Can you believe it???
Isn't this week  DRRAAAGGGGIINNNNGGGGG?? Maybe because here in Colorado, I am so beyond ready for nice weather and it keeps tricking us. Oh hello beautiful gorgeous day, oh here is the rain again, WELL HOWDY sun, just kidding, it's snowing. UGH!


A while back, I was awarded the Stylish Blogger Award by Miss Nicole over at Frogs, Snails and Fairytales. She has three caaa-UTIE pie kiddos and I love keeping up to date on their antics! Plus, her name is Nicole...so of course she is fabulous already! :)

Thanks for the award, Nicole!

As a stipulation of said award, I shall share 7 things about myself. Ready...set...GO!

1. I save things as if I was a child of the Depression. It's a little bit of I grew up poor, a little bit of having a *very* frugal grandma living with me for some years, and a little bit of I am just a weirdo. If there is even a drop of juice, or one tiny little scrape of jelly left, I will save it and use it later. Matt gets super annoyed with this little quirk of mine.

2.  I always have a hair tie around my wrist or in my hair. If I leave the house without it, I will turn all the way around and go get it. MUST be able to restrain hair at will!

3.  I doubted the existence of God many, many times until the day of the death of my mother. That day proved to me, without a shadow of a doubt, that the Lord exists.

4.  I knew as a little girl that it was my calling to be a mother. When people would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would often say, "a mom."

5.  I am a vegetarian.  And yes, that means no fish people!! {I get asked that all.the.time.} Matt and I are in process of slowly converting to being full vegans (which means not eating anything that comes from an animal}. This includes eggs, butter, cheese, etc. It is not easy but something we both feel is right for our family.

6.  I have a wide variety of friends. They range greatly in levels of income, spiritual beliefs, marital status,  parenting beliefs, etc.

7.  I would absolutely have 2-3 more children if our finances, home and Matt :) would allow. I think big families are wonderful, and I am very blessed to conceive quite easily.

So, there you go! Now you know more about me {than maybe you wanted to?}

I will now tag 5 other bloggers:

Stacia at Five of Spaids

Kaycee at Who am I 

Adriana at Litera Scripta Manet

Justin at 42

Molly at Stilettos and Diapers

I am excited to learn more about some of you!!Also? If you enjoy reading my blog and don't currently follow me, would you? It would make my Tuesday!!

Fun tidbits about you! Congrats on your award.

I'm totally with you about this bipolar weather. So tired of it!

If you have a minute, you might enjoy my latest post about Grandpa and the Littles.
