I won a blog award! My friend Missty has bestowed upon me the "Let's Be Frank" award. Now I am supposed to tell 10 honest things about myself. I tend to be brutally honest so this shouldn't be hard.

1) I hate winter and I can't wait for warmer weather to arrive. Actually, I would really like to pack my bags and head back to Florida and never see another 50 degree day for as long as I live.

2) While I seem to be in a gripe-y mood, I also hate car lines at the elementary school. If the prize wasn't retrieving my cute 6 year old I would never agree to wait in my car again. (Yes, I know, I have literally YEARS of car lines in my future!)

3) Unlike Missty who likes her dog.... I dislike mine more and more as time goes on, which is kinda hard to do seeing as how I never really cared for her in the first place.

4) (Boy, I am on a roll, aren't I?) Let's get something positive down..... I do love cats and we are going to be adopting two this spring! :)

5) I think boys are much easier to raise than girls. In fact, it seems natural, to me, to raise boys and completely other-worldly to be picking away at trying to raise this daughter of mine! Her terrible twos (which definitely extended into her threes) are getting better but I still don't know what to do with her half the time.

6) I do not like to leave the upstairs of the house in the morning until each bed is made, the humidifiers have been refilled, all clothes have been collected into one hamper (and is ready to be carried downstairs and put in the washer) and trashcans have been emptied. Then if I don't get back up there again it is at least clean.

7) I don't like English peas nor the sound of piano music. At all.

8) Traveling to new places is one of my favorite things to do. The farther from home the better.

9) One of my favorite ways to de-stress is exercise, especially yoga, pilates and Zumba. I also like to run, but that is hard!

10) I would take a nap every single day if I could. I can't. LOL

Thanks for playing. I am with you - I LOVE traveling!! I love the research and planning, and then the going! And I will borrow Natalie to do girlie things with.

As far as the dogs. I have never been an animal person - ever! I said I am starting to like them! lol I am warming up to them, NEVER did I think I would say such a thing.

Wow! That is some list! I loved reading your answers. I love that you do everything upstairs before you come down. That is great idea!

I liked your list! Yeah, you really can't start the day until the bed is made!

Wow, you are an amazing person.. maybe a little anal (only because i am not I think that makes me lazy!!!) I find it funny that you can't stand the sound of piano music I have never thought about it but, now that I have I am not that fond of it either.
Hey I love to try to read the letters of my word verification it was beersor, Would that be what you would have if you drink to much beer? A Beer sore.

Have you found two kittens yet?

I like our dogs. A lot. And my husband came home from the store and bought them smoked bones. This must indicate a.) they've been doused in dog-be-gone and we'll be dogless in the morning, or b.) he likes them, he really likes them.
