I meant to get to this yesterday....but some days just have a way of running away on me (today almost did the same - I will post about that later)....but here goes:

Kerry from Kerry'd Away Designs nominated me for this cool little award yesterday - after being nominated first herself.  I was quite honoured especially since my blog is only in it's infancy (not even a month old yet!) and has already gone through a couple of 'remodels'.....

The expectations upon receiving this award are as follows (cut and pasted from Kerry's blog):

  • Thank the sender for nominating you.
  • make sure you link to the person who nominated you.
  • Copy the logo onto your blog
  • List seven interesting things about yourself.
  • Nominate Seven Kreative Bloggers
  • Post links to their Blog
  • Leave a comment for each letting them know of their nomination.

NOW FOR MY SEVEN 'INTERESTING' THINGS (that's pretty subjective isn't it? lol!) that you may not know about me:

1.  I was adopted at age 10.  I was in 14 different foster homes between the ages of 8-9, and was adopted by the family that fostered me from age 9+.  Sadly - it turned out to be not a match made in heaven....I left that home when I was still in grade 12. I have no relationship with them 20 years later, and they have not even met my children.

2.  My oldest son (now 16) had open-heart surgery when he was 5 months old.  He is doing well now, but will require more surgeries as a young adult I am told.  He is doing better than we were told though - he can play a 90 minute soccer game!

3.  My second son (now 12) has Aspergers, ADHD, and Tourettes.  Days can be pretty challenging - but his random "I love you mom"s make it all worthwhile.

4.  Between November 2006 and November 2007 I lost 80 pounds! 

5.  I did two sprint distance (750m swim/20k bike/5k run) triathlons in May and June of 2008.   I only began learning to swim in February of 2008 - and  I came 3rd in my age group in my first one!!  I actually had the 7th fastest time for the bike split out of the whole race:)  Unfortunately I have been battling with knee issues since then and have not been able to consistently run - although it is improving.

6.  I met my husband at a bus stop!

7.  My husband travels a lot for work (on average at least 50% of the year)....

AND NOW I PASS THE HONORS TO:  (this is really hard!)
