Wednesday, June 8, 2011

A special thank you to MandaPanda and Lisa-The Rest of My Life.  I was doubly nominated and am doubly honored...especially because I like both of these bloggers/weight loss sisters so much.

*Contact these bloggers, and let them know they received this award.

Here I go with things about myself:
  1. I feel that I got kids that were better than I dreamed of. I really feel like god put me and my kids together in this life. This doesn't mean that our relationship is perfect though. We have our moments. 
  2. For the first time in a long time. I love my job and I'm thankful for being able to make money doing things I love.
  3. I have a hard time with confrontation and don't do it well.
  4. I am in love with my husband. Yesterday he cleaned the house!  He is the best life partner, funny, kind, silly and very considerate.
  5. My love for my husband is not earth's calm, peaceful and beautiful.
  6. I always feel guilty after getting mad at my kids. Evidence of this are the many toys in our basement (guilt gifts).  If you ever visit looks like Toys R Us for boys downstairs.
  7. I'm satisfied and love the way the kids have turned out so far and look forward to the rest of our relationship.
  8.  I love sushi.
  9.  I'm not shy.
  10. I actually enjoy talking to small and large groups.
  11. I find the beach and bodies of water healing.


  1. I find bodies of water to be VERY calming to me also. I live in the desert though. Maybe that's why I'm discontent?

    You're more than welcome for the award. It's much deserved!

  2. Congrats on the award, Rachel! And I enjoyed getting to know you a bit better through your "about me" list...The first one is something I feel too...and I often say (out loud or to myself) about my kids "How'd I get SO lucky?"

  3. Love it! I always feel guilty for getting mad at my kids, too. Eek!

    You definitely deserve this award! I was gonna nominate you, but you already had it. :)

  4. I love this post! I feel like I know a little more about you!
