KimmyBows Makes Me Happy!

So if you remember from my earlier post I mentioned how I was a bit down about the lack of weight loss on the scale this morning.  Then at the end I said how a friend and I were going to get pedi’s tonight, so that made me feel a little happier.  And then, when I was reading my blogs today, I saw that Miss Kim over at ‘That’s the Thing About Destiny’ nominated me for the Liebster Award!  That made me feel SUPER happy!  Thanks, girl, for the love! Another reason I love blogging, you girls lift me up!

My 11 ‘things’

  1. Let’s just go balls to the wall and start this off right – Hello, my name is Erin, and I don’t believe dinosaurs ever existed. Ok, lets not get too crazy here, no you’re-stupid-I’m-never-reading-your-blog-again hate mail please.  It just seems so crazy to me that poof, there was the world.  Poof, there were dinosaurs.  Poof, there weren’t dinosaurs.  Poof, there are humans.  My brain doesn’t compute.  The bones, those were manufactured by the people who want you to believe.  Yep, I’m a freak.
  2. I am a licensed cosmetologist and I miss being in a salon like crazy!
  3. My favorite color is green but I do not own any clothing with green on it.
  4. I really like to garden.  I love flowers and wish I could buy them all at the nursery.  And I love going to my veggie garden and picking fresh veggies.  I just wish I had a ‘magazine perfect’ flower bed.  Someday…
  5. I was a girl’s basketball cheerleader in high school.  They won the state championship my senior year.  I cried my eyes out when my cheerleading career was over.  My husband (boyfriend at the time) really REALLY liked it when I wore my uniform. Ha ha!
  6. I get excited when I see a hummingbird in my yard.  (Yes, I am really 72 years old in spirit!)
  7. I am not a daredevil AT ALL, and the thought of bungee jumping scares the heck out of me.  I wish I was more adventurous.
  8. One trait I would love to have is the ability to decorate my house really well, which I think would translate to me dressing great, too.
  9. If I could live in any decade I would live in the 60’s as a teenager.  I’d rock bell bottoms, flower power, would dance on American Bandstand and would know all the words to all the songs on the radio. OH, and I’d see The Beatles in concert!
  10. When I was 15 I had a tumor in the bone of my hip.  It was benign, they removed it and I haven’t had any problems with it since.  But it was super scary.  And about every male doctor-in-training saw my 15 and 16 year old butt.  Better than my 32 yr. old butt, I guess. LOL!
  11. I say what I mean, and mean what I say.  If I say something, good or bad to you, I mean it.  Love you!  <--- I meant that!

And the questions for them to answer.

  1. Do you believe dinosaurs existed? Ha ha!

  3. What is one trend you wish would come back in style?
  4. What is the one super power you wish you possessed?

  7. Sausage or pepperoni?
  8. If you could go somewhere that is tropical, where would you go?
  9. Socks or no socks in bed?
  10. How many boys/men have you kissed?
  11. Who is your celebrity crush, both guy and gal?

And now I will answer the q’s from Miss K.

  1. Favorite Movie Quote?  This one stumped me, I’m not one to quote movies very much so nothing is coming to mind.  I fail.
  2. Most embarrassing Moment? Being pushed into Steve Brechler’s crotch in the garden when I was in Jr. High.  It still makes me blush!
  3. Biggest struggle as a human being? self confidence
  4. Favorite Sport team? The Iowa Hawkeyes, duh!
  5. favorite exercise? Swimming
  6. chocolate or vanilla? Chocolate
  7. favorite drink? Mt Dew
  8. best childhood memory?  So many to choose from, hard to pick.  I guess I’ll choose when my sister and I would take our Barbie’s to the timber where the sheep ran right by our house. We’d use their trails as roads, have the houses be under roots of trees that were buckled up.  It was so fun, even if we were playing in sheep poop!
  9. what thumbprint do you hope to leave on this world when you go? Children and grandchildren that are successful in making the world a better place.
  10. favorite type of music? Oldies
  11. Paper or Plastic? Neither, I have reusable grocery bags
