Wowzers! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

I just hit over 1000 followers!  I cannot thank you guys enough for supporting my blog and coming to visit and comment!  I have thoroughly enjoyed sharing my ideas with you, and getting inspiration from you all!  Even better are the friendships that I have made along the way through blogland!  Love it!
I am also quite honored to be in Babble’s Top 50 Crafty Blogs!  How cool is that? 
Since I’m on a roll talking about personal stuff (kind of) I thought I’d continue on this topic.  I am so excited that I will be attending Creative Estates in a few weeks.  I can’t wait to actually meet many of you wonderful ladies from the bloggy world!  It will be my first blogging conference and kind of scares me to go as much as I’m looking forward to it.  If you are going I’d love for you to introduce yourself and say “Hi” to me! 

I’ve gotten a few questions about who I am and thought now would be the perfect time to spill a little of the beans! Winking smile  How about a top 10 list of things you might not know about me?

1.  The most important thing to me is raising my 3 amazing children! (You all might know that one already but it has to be stated when saying things about myself as it’s the biggest part of me and what I am most proud of and thankful for.  I thoroughly LOVE being their Mother).
2.  I run a daycare out of my home to continue to stay at home with my super fun children while still paying the bills!  I really enjoy the daycare.  I love the kids.  I also met my Best Friend through my daycare, as I watched her 3 children.  She is AMAZING and I’m so lucky to have her in my life!
3.  I have been going to school full time for over 4 years now.  In the Fall I will be student teaching!  I can’t wait!  When classes are finally over I will be that flash you see, running through the streets, partying for days on end!  Or maybe shouting from the roof tops!  Seriously.
4.  In High School I was on the Boys Soccer team.  They did not have a girls team.  I also ran Cross Country and Track (but on the girls’ teams).
5.  I am only 5 ft 1. 
6.  My oldest daughter is not a teenager yet and she is already bigger than me in many ways!
7.  I have recently been working my butt off (literally) doing p90x, and I love it.  I actually have always LOVED working out and being fit!  But this program is so much fun!  For anyone who does it, I just keep repeating the first 3 week’s schedule.  I don’t know why.  I just like it this way.
8.  I really love kayaking, though I rarely do it!  Like, REALLY love it!  (If I made any money while student teaching I would totally buy myself a kayak as a graduation present.  But since they don’t pay student teachers, I will just give myself a picture of a kayak! Winking smile .  Though if we are talking dreams, I’d also give myself a trip to Denmark!  That would be my dream vacation! ).
9.  I am super super super talkative.  But for some reason I have a really hard time opening up on my blog (as I’m sure you noticed).
10.  Opening myself up like this on the internet scares the dickens out of me!!

OK, now do you still want to meet me at Creative Estates?  Smile

K, now we’ll see if I have the guts to post this!

PS  Thanks again for all the support!  It really is appreciated!
