Well, Kelli and I are absolutely honored and blessed to receive the “Stylish Blogger Award” from our precious bloggy friend Debbie Dillon! She is such an inspiration and encouragement to us all of the time, so if you haven’t checked her out yet, please head over the Writin'4HimCafe to meet her next.
As a recipient of this sweet award we are asked to share 7 things about ourselves with you that you may not already know. So, since we are a team of two you get a double dose of interesting (or not so interesting) tidbits from us…
1.) I was born in Iowa, but raised in the Dallas, Texas area.
2.) My husband is a Reno native who lived in Dallas for 2 years… I met him 2 days before he was planning to move back to Reno. He stayed for 2 weeks and I quit my job and moved out here 5 months later. We were married 2 years later.
3.) My husband is not my type, but he was the first “nice guy” that I ever really liked… and that is the greatest gift God has ever given me because my “type” was scary and destructive.
4.) We have 3 amazingly, fabulous kids: Hannah – 8, Robbie – 6 and Isabelle – 4. I am blessed to stay home and homeschool… though it’s not easy, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
5.) I am a PADI certified scuba diver… it was a prerequisite to my marriage. We got married in November, so I had to take my final certification dive in Lake Tahoe… in October… with snow on the ground in order to be ready to dive on our honeymoon! This is a picture of us right after our shark dive in Roatan..
6.) I absolutely love to cook. If I had gone to college I know now that I would have been a chef or a writer! What a blessing now to be a stay-at-home wife and mom and still be able to do both!
7.) And, lastly as a family we spend our time having as many Super Family Fun nights as we can fit into a weekend… watching movies, attending UNR basketball games, traveling, skiing (well not me… I sit in the lodge and read) and camping!
1.) I was raised in Marietta Georgia.
2.) My husband and I were married after 3 months of dating.
3.) And, we were married in a drive-thru Wedding Window in Las Vegas!
4.) I have one brother.
5.) I played basketball.
6.) I've worn braces twice.
7.) We have three girls (3,6,7).
