Kreative Blogger Award

Kreativ Blogger AwardGuess who has two thumbs, a camera, her own little space on the web and has been awarded the Kreative Blogger Award? That’s right, this girl right here. Can I tell you how excited I am about this? Well, I’m very…

I was given the award by Natasha at Houseful of Nicholes. If you haven’t visited her blog, you should definitely do so. She is the craftiest library~saving momma this side of the Pecos. OK, I don’t know about the Pecos part but I do know that lady can sew up a storm and she’s a big~time library crusader. So please, go check her out.

So the rules of the award are:

  1. Thank the award giver and link back to them in your post
  2. Copy the award and post it above
  3. Tell your readers seven things about yourself
  4. Award seven others and tell them about the award

Seven randomosities about me:

  • I can touch the tip of my nose with my tongue. This is not one of those life skills that has served me well in adulthood but as a kid, it used to freak my sisters out, so it was well worth it’s short~lived value.
  • In a previous life, I was a model, history instructor and librarian. I was also in the Army for 4 years. During that time, I was stationed in Korea and I would stay with random Korean families just for fun. I would kill my kids if they ever did that. I didn’t speak Korean and many of the families that I visited didn’t speak English.
  • We found out about my twins 9 days before they were born. As in the doctor said, “Mrs. Tucker, you’re having twins and we don’t deliver twins here, so you’ll have to go to Texas.” Nine days before I was due to give birth. You can read about my labor on the highway by going here.
  • I’m not a bad mother but I once left my kid at the top of the escalator. Although the statute of limitations ran out about 14 years ago, she still tells the story to anyone who will listen and offer a sympathetic ear.
  • I would like to be a professional car dancer. Dude, if there can be professional paint ballers, surely there can be professional car dancers.
  • I absolutely positively love monkeys. If you’d like to know the story behind my monkey love, just go here. When I was a kid, I swore I’d have a monkey and a child and raise them together as siblings. My plan was vetoed by the hubs.
  • My Nikon D3100 is the best gift the hubs has ever given me. That includes the children.

    How sweet are you?    Thanks 🙂

    What fun random things to learn…though finding out about twins right before they came…maybe that wouldn’t be quite so fun, certainly not having to switch hospitals at short notice!

    • Thank you, Nora! I really do enjoy your photography and I’ve learned so much from stalking your blog.

      Finding out about the twins was both scary and funny. And they’ve been full of surprises ever since.
