Award-Winning Ramblings

This past week I was given my first ever blog award by Leesha at the Heins Farm. Go check her out... she rocks! Thanks, Leesha!

These are the rules of this particular award:
1. Thank & link back to the person who gave me me the award. (see above)
2. Share 7 things about myself.
3. Award (up to) 15 recently discovered great bloggers.
4. Make sure I contact these bloggers to let them know about the award.

So here are 7 things about me, the award-winning rambler!

1. When I was younger, I HATED my name with a living, breathing passion. In middle school, people called me "Amazing Grace" and it bothered me to no end. But in high school, I woke up and realized that they were calling me AMAZING, and that there are a lot worse things they could be calling me. So I decided my name was pretty rock-awesome.

2. I was born on July 5th, 1976 - one day off from being a bicentennial baby. My parents would have won all kinds of prizes if I had come one day earlier, but my mom always said it was more special to her that I was born on her mother's (my Grandma's) birthday.

3. My senior year of high school, I played the role of "Dorcas" in our high school musical presentation of
7 Brides for 7 Brothers. The drama teacher wanted to change the name to "Dorris" but I wouldn't let her. I thought being called "Dorcas" was hilarious and I milked it for all it was worth!

4. Yes, it's true, I fell and broke both my legs during my first pregnancy. I'm hoping for a much more boring pregnancy this time around.

5. I passed the swimming test that lifeguards have to pass when I was 6. But I didn't actually work as a lifeguard until I was 27!

6. My favorite job that I've ever had was teaching preschool in San Francisco and Seattle.

7. I love, love, LOVE to write and I'm thankful you stop by and read my (award-winning) ramblings here! :)

Now, my "I Love This Blog" award goes to:

Dorian at One Hundred Pounds

There are other blogs that I love, of course, but they've already been given the award, and I don't want them to get a big head!
