Sass Gave Me an Award!

The ever fantastic Sass from Secret Life of Sass and Lex has wonderfully bestowed the following award on me. Thanks Sass!

The rules are that I must write 10 things about me that my readers don't already know. This ought to be juicy! Here we go:
  1. All right friends, the cat is out of the bag. I've been wanting to admit this for some time, since I am crap at keeping secrets. This is actually my secondary blog. I created the Return to Innonce blog because everyone IRL has my other blog address and there are some things going on in my life that I don't want them to know about, like my PPD. I hide it well on the surface, but needed an outlet that didn't involve me confessing going to a shrink or taking antidepressants to people I know. I never post the same post on both blogs, and I don't follow any of the same blogs on either site, but my posting content does criss cross. If you figure out which other blog is mine, I will definitely let you know it is me. :) (It also participates in ICLW.)
  2. I played trumpet for 10 years and was really good at it. I played because my grandpa played for 40 years during the Big Band Era, and had his own dance band. My dad played for 7 years, and my little brother played for 4. I was pretty decent at it, and it was actually how I paid for most of my college education. I LOVED it. I AM a band geek.
  3. I love the TV show Skins. My husband got me hooked on it half way through the current season, and now I crave it. The bummer is the season finale is this week. I've contemplated buying it on DVD.
  4. I think my husband is the most incredible, intelligent man in the world. He is so caring and compassionate. His memory retention astounds me. I love watching him interact with our daughter. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about how grateful I am I was able to make him a daddy.
  5. I have trained 8 dogs in my 30 years of life; 4 Shelties, 1 Australian Shepherd, and 3 Border Collies.
  6. I love cats and grew up always having cats. One day in my early 20s I was all of a sudden allergic to them. I had two cats before I got married, and they still live with my parents. I live thousands of miles away from them now, but my boys still love me when I do get to go home.
  7. My husband taught me how to cook after we got married. I don't claim to be a gourmet yet, but I do make some mean enchiladas, stuffed shells, and chicken. I get great pleasure out of DH telling me how delicious my meals are. If he says its good, it was good.
  8. I love to vacuum. It brings me a sick sense of pleasure. I recently mowed the lawn and discovered it feels just like vacuuming. Only it's harder, takes longer, and makes me sweat more. But I get the same sense of pleasure out of it.
  9. I put my foot in my mouth more often than I would like.
  10. I love Tex Mex and guacamole. I make some seriously awesome guac, and I just can't get enough.

Now it is my turn to tag a few people. If you're up to it and you read this post, I tag:

  1. Jill at Hubby, Baby, and Me... Would Make 3
  2. Life Happens
  3. Anyone else who feels like being awarded!

Thanks for the award! I feel special. I'll have to think of my 10 things list and will post it later. I love these lists because you learn so much about people (especially in the blogging world) that you wouldn't normally know from just reading there blog.

I would love to read your other blog, if you're willing to share it. You can always email it to me.

Thanks for making my Monday! Have a blessed day.

I love your honesty! Who doesn't wish they had a second blog that family and friends didn't know about so you could go off about whatever is on your mind.

Another blog? Tisk tisk! Well, at least you have found an outlett for these feelings where people you know most likely won't read them or know about the struggles you wish to keep somewhat private. Blogging really is great therapy.
