I am BACK!

Hello to all my WONDERFUL followers! I apologize for slacking in my blogging lately but having conjunctivitis in BOTH freaking eyes is no fun and I am finally able to sit in front of the computer without feeling like my eyeballs are balls of fire.

Since I have been gone, I have been nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award by 3 LOVELY ladies! Thank you, Thank you to AmeyMaria and Kagead!

Here are the rules for this award:
1.Thank the person giving the award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Nominate 15 newly discovered blogs.
4. Let your nominees know about the award.

Ask and ye shall receive:

1. I am a CRADLE ROBBER!  My husband and I have been been married for nearly 4 years. I was 25 when Matt was born and my hubster was a day shy of 19. Yep, I am a cradle robber and damn proud of it. We are very happily married! I mean, come on, we all have our UPs and DOWNs in our relationships and sometimes we can't stand one another but we love one another very much and plan on growing old together. I truly believe the my hubby is an "old soul" because you would never guess he is younger than me!

2. I have 3 kids (as you all have seen from my pics). Michael is 14, Matthew is 8 and Macy is 7 months. Yep, all M names! I was a single mother of 1 for nearly 5 years.

3. My son Michael has some several severe mental illnesses. He is currently stable but used to be physical and verbally abusive. He was hospitalized 7 times between the age of 4 and 10. He lived in a residential treatment center 3 times.

4. I like to read but have had a hard time finding books that capture me after reading the Twilight series. Oh, and the books are 100x's better than the movies.

5. I love photography and wish I would have gone to college for photography and was able to be a photographer for a living. Nothing greater than getting paid for something you love doing!

6. I have never cheated on my husband and never would but I have a girl crush on Amy W. She is sooooo dang cute! I know, I am a little stalker-ish but it's all good!

7. I fear that I will be the fattest person at BOOBS Chicago! I know I blogged about this before but it still bothers me. I will get over it.....on Sunday at BOOBS when I am on my way home! LOL!

So, there you have it. A fer tasty morsels into the life of ME!!!
I nominate the following BEAUTIFUL bloggers:
Liss - My band buddy! Poor Liss was banded the same time as me but just finally got a fill and some restriction!
Sparkler - She got kicked out of Care Bear Land for bad language....had to laugh!
Sugar Snap and Me - She's in "bandster hell" and could use all of our support because that is HELL!
Sarah - She just reached her first 25 lbs lost and has 25 followers. YAY!
Lily's Mommy - She needs our support because her stupid scale is stuck!
Katherine - She is a fellow bandster but she also recently assisted with a HOME cool is that?
CeeJay - She has lost 71 lbs and is such an inspiration!
Seeing in Colour - Her "wishes" are great and she is so beautiful!
Nikki - She is so beautiful and started her band journey a few months before me. Check out the Homecoming video on her Blog!
Shrinking Mommy - Ok, she is totally rocking this band! She has lost 100 lbs in 8 months (and 3 weeks)..that is awesome!
MLM - She and I were banded within weeks of one another and so that makes MLM awesome! Cuz I say so!
Amanda M. - She wants to become a Social Worker and I always wanted to become a social worker but never finished my education so I have to give recognition to a woman who is following her dreams and getting healthy along the way!
Jenny - She is seriously rocking this band too! She just got her band at the end of June and is doing a GREAT job! You go girl!
McKayla - She is another band buddy from LBT.
