The lovely and talented Judy over at DIY by DESIGN just awarded me the Stylish Blogger award.
I am so appreciative that she thought of my blog ~
You are supposed to share 7 things about you when you receive this award...
(One of the things you already do know about me is that I love the beach!!)
Here are 7 things you may not know about me~
As a youth,
I was on a competitive swim team every summer
I hold county swim records in my best stroke
even now in the county where I grew up.
I went to school to be an Emergency Medical Technician just after H.S.
and was offered a job before graduating the class.
But then I did the 8 hours of E.R. time...
and about passed out trying to help a doctor with stitches...
so uh, yeah- maybe not the job for me.
I don't speak French or Spanish other than a wee little bit-
but I taught myself
Sign Language while in H.S.
& worked for several years with special needs students
and then in a transitional group home for
deaf/special needs persons after graduating.
I love projects and construction!
Though I am a girly girl all the way. I do love to get dressed up & look pretty! :)
The opera is one of my favorite dates to go on!
But I do enjoy knowing how to use power tools and build with the boys too.
I bought myself a set of 'baby' power tools-
(the 'man' sized ones were too heavy and big for my hands)
so I could re-side the carriage house while my husband was at work.
I have actually thought about getting my contractors license.
I raised my kids vegetarian & so far only my oldest has become a delinquent.
I used to tell him it was his choice to eat meat but I wasn't going to buy it for him
and contribute to the delinquency of a minor)
I started writing my first book when I was about 10 years old.
My grandmother saved it for, well, *just a few* years ;)
I finished it for her about 10 years ago and gave her the manuscript for Christmas.
I dream of writing a french cottage design book one day.
A couple people who already know this suggested I share with you all:
The pictures on my blog are taken with my well loved
One of these days, I should probably get a regular camera I suppose-
but my phone has been doing a pretty decent job.
(I actually just got a new camera! Yay!)
So there you are~
A few random things you might not have known about me.
