Imma let you finish

I was nominated for an "Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award" from the always awesome Ashley.  Check out her blog and then thank me for turning you on to her laugh-out-loud humor.  Hmm, probably shouldn't talk about turning people on when nominated for an award with sweet in the title.

Anyways, my end of the deal is that I have to list 7 things about myself that you don't already know and nominate my own deserving and sweet friend's blogs.  I wish everything was that easy in my life.  Without further ado, here are the facts:
  1. I hate raisins with a passion.  They are gross and make me cringe just thinking about them. My disdain is that intense.
  2. I love to look at what people have in their grocery carts.  It's fascinating to me what people buy.  You can tell a lot about a person from what is in their cart.  It's like a little window into their lives.
  3. Don't get me wrong, before Aaron, I had branched out a lot.  In fact, I think I've mentioned here before that I am way different from my southern style food upbringing and from my family in general.  However, my lovely husband introduced me to good beer, eel sushi rolls, brussel sprouts, red wine, oranges (how to peel them) and many more things.  Who knows?  If I hadn't met Aaron, maybe I'd still be the girl who drinks Bud Ice (yes, I'm serious) with a limited pallet.
  4. If I could do anything in the world without the money being a factor, but still with having a job.  I would open a cafe/coffee house/gift shop.  It would be awesome, just so you know. 
  5. I'm much more flattered when girls hit on me than guys. Let's be honest, we are way pickier.  Aaron and I went out for dinner for my 24th birthday and I was hit on by our quite pretty waitress.  Half way through the dinner, Aaron said something along the lines of, "I think our waitress is into you."  Yeah, you think?  I had known from the moment she started talking to me.  Aaron might as well not have been there.  It was hilarious.  He was getting so mad and, I think, jealous.  :)
  6. I'm a nerd in the fact, that if I find something or hear something that I don't already know, then I will always look it up.  It bugs me when I don't know something.  There is always room for learning in my world.  Pocket protector wearers unite!
  7. I can draw blood and start IVs without a problem, but come at me with a needle, and I can't watch it break the skin.  I just rather not see it.  Other people, stick away.
It was hard coming up with 7 things that I haven't told on this blog.  You guys, pretty much know everything about me.  Now to keep up with my end of the bargain, here are my nominees.  You should go and check them out because they are all great reads.
  1. Esther at Everyday Eddy's.  Esther's blog is full of updates on her family.  Her blog is definitely sweet and deserving of an award.
  2. Misty at Misty's Rants and Raves.  It's kind of cruel to even put this here.  Why, you ask?  Well, because her blog is set to private.  Is her blog sweet?  Well, if sweet means, awesome, then yes it is!  I laugh out loud at just about all her posts.  She says exactly what is on her mind and that is one of the reasons I love it and you would too.
  3. Julie at Mommy and Miles.  Now, Julie, I know you just got nominated from Ashley too, so you don't have to do all the other things, but she's insanely funny and I love blogs written by new moms because I'm a new mom too.  We can figure it out together.
I would nominate more, but most of the others that I read are people who I don't even know, but enjoy reading.  Thanks again, Ashley, for the nomination!

    1. I never EVER thought my passive aggressive little blog would ever win a sweetest blog contest. I'm pretty sure hell is about to freeze over.
