R is for...

Ready... for Thanksgiving Holidays! I know that everybody out there (especially teachers) feel the same way. We are always ready for a break. :) Although we get a break from work, that is not the only reason I am ready for Thanksgving. It is such a special time of the year when you get to see family and eat lots of yummy food. I am excited about getting to see my family this Thanksgiving. We are traveling to my grandparents' house outside of Nashville. It is going to be one big slumber party. My parents, my brother and his wife, and Jason and me are all staying in my grandparents' cozy house. My parents get the guest bedroom while all of us "kids" get to sleep on air mattresses in the living room. :) I am sure I will have lots of stories to share when I get home. I hope everyone that reads this has a Happy Thanksgiving. May God bless you and give you lots to be thankful for!

Kreativ Blogger Award

Although I really don't deserve this award, my sweet friend Sally gave me the Kreativ Blogger Award. When you receive this award, you have to think of 6 interesting facts about yourself and then tag 6 other people with the award. I am not sure if I can think of 6 interesting facts about myself, but I will give it a shot. :)

1. I plan out my menu every week so it makes my life easier. I don't like to have to think about what I am going to cook for dinner when I get home. Having it already planned out allows me to just come home and cook up what I have on the menu. :) If you don't do this, you should try it. It really is a time saver.

2. One of my favorite things to do is read recipe books. I know it sounds weird, but since I am planning out my menus, I love to read through a recipe book or magazine to find any new dishes that might be a hit with Jason and me.

3. I talk to my mother every day. My moma is my best friend and I look forward to talking to her every morning on my way to work. Someone has asked me before, "Who are you always talking to in the mornings when you get to work?"...Well, my mother of course. :) Some mornings I talk to her for the whole 30 minutes it takes me to get to work and some mornings, we just simply say hello, have a good day, and I love you. It doesn't matter the length of our conversation, it just matters that I get to talk to her. Can you tell that I am a moma's girl? :)

4. I cry when I watch The Biggest Loser...I know what a loser I am. Haha! Jason and I will be watching the show (especially when they are weighing in and they only lose a few pounds) and he will look over and say "Are you crying?!" I just can't help it. They work so hard to only lose 1 or 2 pounds and the look on their faces just make me sad. :( I know, I know...that is pathetic, but its a fact. :)

5. I am a former Tomato Queen. :) Yes you read that right...a Tomato Queen. My hometown used to be the tomato capital of the world and every year a Tomato Festival is held which involves a queen. My junior year in high school, I was the Tomato Queen. I basically was the Miss Hospitality of the town and went to all the ribbon cuttings. And crown was not made of tomatoes. :)

6. I love to get up early in mornings, sit on my couch with a blanket, and drink a cup of coffee. Sometimes I will read my Bible or watch TV, but there is something about the stillness and quietness of the early morning that I just love. I know that I will enjoy this time even more once we have children. Who knows, once we have children, I might enjoy the sleep even more than the quietness. :)

Now I tag Tori, Audie, Nicole, Kelly, Ashley P., and Sara Whitten. Good luck girls! I can't wait to read your interesting facts!! :)
