The truth about this Okie Redneck!!!

I was sitting here, minding my own business and out of the blue, on my google reader popped up a blog that I read CONSTANTLY Forever Rhonda and reading through it I found out that I won an award. I have never won an award in blogger world!!!! This is my first that I have ever won! Thanks Rhonda!!!!

So here are the rules.
1. Get nominated. I think I did this one.... Oh yeah Rhonda did it!!!

2. Tag 7 other totally awesome bloggers.

3. Tell TEN completely honest facts about yourself in your blog.

My nominations are... (drum roll please.....) in no particular order

1. Sarah at Life{Sweet}Life who is expecting a baby BOY in May. I am so excited for them!

2. Mandy over at Campbell Family Party of 3. I actually went to school with her and although we weren't close in school we have became better friends since school. Amazing what adulthood does! She has an amazing story about her family and what they have been through to get their daughter.

3. Kerri over at I'm Just Sayin is a hoot to read. She is a new wife and mother and I love seeing those pictures!!!

4. Ya'll have got to go and check this gal out at Deer Passion. I really think that we are long lost sisters. She is on a small hiatus but go and look through her back stuff, it is amazing!

5. The Momma Hen of this bunch at Henhouse Pottery is amazing. I keep learning all the different aspects of her talents and she blows me out of the water. She doesn't know it yet but she has inspired me to try and start keeping bees. So I will most likely be picking her brain!

6. A gal who is an awful lot like me but lives across the United States! Go and check her out at Sweet Sue!!!!

7. Marian over at Marian's Hunting Stories is a blast. She loves the outdoors and makes me more aware of what is going on around me!

So here we go. Ten fascinating truths that you may or may not have known about me....

1. I am scared of heights. Like deathly scared of heights. But I still crawl up into a tree stand that is anywhere from 10 to 20 feet in the air. As I am crawling up I am thinking to myself, "What in the heck am I doing this for?" and then I am up there and remember the beauty of it all.

2. I have been married twice.... to the same man.... We were married young and are making a more educated pass at it this time.

3. Although I love my Real Tree camo but my favorite color is pink. But I like green too...

4. And speaking of green I have owned 3 vehicles in my life and all three have been green...

5. I am three semesters away from being a teacher. This makes me ecstatic and utterly speechless all at the same time. I am so ready to get into this profession and make a change!

6. I have a sis-in-law who is 5 years old and a bro-in-law who is two. When we go out everyone thinks that they are OUR kids. We have the most fun with this.

7. Even with school, a full time job, a part time job and all the normal stuff that I have to do my goal is to cook through the Pioneer Woman's cookbook. I am not setting a schedule due to the previous mentioned time consuming activities but it is my goal!

8. I got 3rd place in a chili cook off at the local college when I was 24. I was competing again a lot of women who had been cooking for many years. I didn't tell them until after what my secret recipe included - DEER!!!!

9. I have two mother-in-laws, one is five years older than me.... We get mistaken for sisters if people don't know us. The five year old and two year old are hers.

10. I have a best friend who is an awful lot like me. She hunts, fishes and had a brand new beautiful baby girl, AJ. We are so much alike and I don't know what I would do without her!

That is all the fun and interesting facts that you will find out about me today. I know that you are wanting to know more since I am SOOOOO interesting but it will have to wait until another day! Have a wonderful one!
