Epically Awesome Award of Epic Awesomeness


The Epic Award of Epic Awesomeness was bestowed upon me by the epically awesome, super hilarious Just a Little Nutty!!

THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!! It’s about time someone recognized my epic awesomeness… LOL 😉

The rules are simple:
Nominate 10 bloggers that you think deserve this.
Provide 10 random facts about yourself.
So, here’s goes the fun!


Ten things… Hmm…. Let me think…… I want to put something different from what is on my About Me page. 😉

1- I am short… VERY short! Barely 5 ft tall!!!

2- I don’t really have a favorite color, I like them all!! Well, except brown. BLECK!!!  But if I absolutely HAD to pick it would be close between yellow and red.

3- I have fibromyalgia and it SUCKS! Big time!! It’s definitely kicking my butt this week. :/

4- I realllly realllly REALLLLY want to go to England and Ireland someday.

5- I can wiggle my ears! LOL

6- I have been a member at Paperback Swap for almost 6 1/2 years and I have definitely built a sizable personal library. LOL  The Hubby never stops complaining about all of my books. 😛 to him!

7- I can speak pig Latin. (Yes, I am reaching now. LOL) My cousin and I were taught my aunt.

8- I have thing for cows and owls. I’ve collected cows for about 25 years! The owl obsession has only been for the past 5 or 6 years.

9- I am taking 5 college courses right now, only one is for a certificate, though. The rest are just for the sake of the knowledge itself. I will be picking up 2 more classes in the next few months but at least one of them will be done by then.

10- I am an only child. My dad is one of 9 and my mom was one of 15. The Hubby is one of 5 boys. And of course, I have 5 of my own. 😉

In a few days I will be sharing 2 pattern tests for SquigglyTwigs Designs!!!!

I am working on my signature look for final challenge at Project Run & Play. You should stop by and check out all the men’s shirt refashions in the link up!!

I am also working on study themes for Marco Polo and electricity. After that I am thinking about an owl unit…

Busy, busy, busy!! If only this flare up would go away and leave me alone I could get more accomplished!





Halloween is one of my favorite holidays!!! I LOOOOOVE IT!! I love the weather! The leaves falling from the trees! The hot chocolate! The costumes! And the candy… LOL 😉

BUT my two little ones are sick!!!! WAH!!! Cailey and Colin both have nasty colds. 😦 First no Halloween party at church because of the Frankenstorm and now no trick or treating!! They are so disappointed! But we are going to try to make it up to them a little. They are wearing their costumes all day and vegging out in front of the TV with Halloween cartoons. After The Hubby gets home from work we are going to go out and buy them some candy. At least this way they will be sure to get their favorites!

I can’t believe, with having 5 kids, that this will be the first time this has happened. The older 3 always got sick right after Halloween.

Here are some pics of Cailey and Colin in their mommy made costumes!
















Here are the Halloween Rice Krispies Treats and Cailey and Colin made last night.

I think there are only 3 left! LOL


AND I am the very proud nominee of the The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award!!!! WOOOO HOOOO!!! Given to me by Shelly Bean at Follow Me Home. You should check out her blog, it is AWWWWWWESOME!!!!!!



AND since I have so much going on around here I have been given a reprieve from jumping through the usual award hoops! LOL

Here is my to-do list for today –

Sorting through Jacob’s room. (He moved out the other day and left me HUGE mess!!!)

Running donations to the thrift store.

Taking care of 2 sick little ones.

Packers arrive between 8 and 9 in the morning.

Laundry, laundry and more laundry.

And all the other crap that I do everyday….


Heaven help me!!! LOL I’m already tired and I haven’t even started on any of this yet! I need a nap just thinking about it all!!!!
