I Won, I Won

I was awarded my very first blog award for most versatile blog which is quite the accomplishment since my blog is only a month old.  This means the world to me because when I started blogging, I wasn't sure anybody would want to read all the words spewing from my mouth, err fingers.  In just the month I have been blogging, I have been astounded by how supportive and caring the mommy blogging community really is.  I am loving chatting with people and making new bloggy friends.

Brooke over at Crazy Mama Drama nominated me for this award and I cannot thank her enough.  You my boy Blue.... (Please tell me someone recognizes that reference.)  Be sure to check out her blog.  I know I sure relate to a title like that. 

Now onto the seven random facts about myself. 
1)  I am terrified of the grey aliens with the big eyes.  Like even typing that makes me shudder terrified.  When I was 13, I swore I was abducted by aliens because I have a very vivid dream. 
2)  I am an avid bird watcher.  I love me some birds.
3)  I did an internship on a Thoroughbred breeding farm in 2005.  It was one of the hardest things I have ever done, but I am so glad I completed it.
4)  I am the most indecisive person and major life decisons are awful for me.  I second guess myself constantly.
5)  I am an animal science major and love horses.
6)  I am an awful loser when it comes to playing Scrabble.  I hate to lose.
7)  I have a mutt named Ladybug that I named that because I didn't think I was going to be able to keep her.  I kind of think it is a silly name now.
