Holy Crap, I Got an Award!!!!

Yeehaw!!!  I got my very first blog award thanks to the wonderful Roe over at My Upside Down Life.  I am truly stunned by this and so happy to know I am loved.

It is also nice to be known as "Kreativ" rather than a sarcastic bitch.  So there are some rules I must follow in order to accept this award and as those who know me I always follow the rules (ok just pretend I do, thanks).

Kreativ Blogger Award Rules:

1. Link back to the one who gave you this award.
2. Share 10 random facts about yourself.
3. Pass the award on to 6 other people.
4. Follow the persons blog who sent you it.

Ten Random Facts About Me

1.  I have had the same best friend for almost 25 years.  She is my rock and I don't know what I would do without her.  She keeps me sane (most of the time) and is honestly one of the best people I know as well as a fantastic mom and wife.

2. I have a cousin and a sister in law that I consider true sisters.  They are the only people who can keep me from killing some of my family members.  (Jenn I think you can name a few of those and Helen, shall we just say "no balls")

3. I don't drink alcohol.  I know, I have two kids and two crappy jobs and I don;t touch a drop.  I am not against it or anything.  Trust me when I say I have had quite a few drunken nights in my past.  When my husband quite drinking I decided to abstain as well to support him.  See, I am a good wife.

4. I like George W. Bush.  Ok people, don't judge.  I like him, always did probably always will.

5. I am seriously into genealogy.  I have researched my family tree for years.  I love doing it and have met several long lost cousins doing it, one of whom I met the last time I went to Ireland.   I also have two family members that came over on the Mayflower, Miles Standish and Stephen Hopkins (when you live in Massachusetts that is a big deal).  Oh and I am distant cousins with Sarah Palin.  Again, don't judge, you can't choose your family.

6. I think that Spartacus is the best show on television.  I mean come on, have you watched it?  It is like Roman porn.  

7. I love reading.  I could give up tv altogether (ok maybe not Spartacus) if I could always find a book I like.  I just finished the Hunger Games Trilogy so I am desperately searching for a new series to read.  Suggestions please people.  I have already read the Twilight series about 10 times and don't want to read it again if I can't find anything else.

8. My husband is off the boat Irish.  And to answer the questions that everybody asks when they hear that, yes, he does have a brogue, and yes, it is kinda sexy.

9. I have a bachelor's degree.  I know I constantly bitch about waitressing and being a lunch lady but believe it or not I am actually I college graduate.  Umass Amherst Class of 1997 to be exact.  I used to have a real job, then I had kids.  I refused to send my kids to daycare so I waitressed at night.  That way the kids were either with me or my husband.  I only went to lunch lady land when my youngest started kindergarten so that I wouldn't sit around the house all day.  I do dream of the day when they are old enough to be self sufficient so I can have nights and weekends off again, but for now it is what it is.

10. Both my boys are named for special people.  I am so sick of people asking if I named my oldest son after Liam Neeson.  Seriously people, what kind of person do you think I am (although I do love Liam Neeson).  My oldest is named after somebody very dear to my husband back in Ireland who passed away a few years before we had kids.  My youngest is named for my awesome grandfather who I miss more than I ever imagined it could.

  1. Since you like W., too, youre about to get a second award. I just got my first "Blogging Oscar", and I get to nominate others, so be on the look out for that!

  2. Oh yeah!!!! Glad to know there are actually 2 of us (opps 3, my dad too) that still like him. Congrats on your award.

  3. First, congratulations!

    Second, I forgive you or George W. and Sarah Palin..

    Third, I too dig genealogy, to a degree. My mom is the real pro and growing up I kinda' got burnt out on the whole roots thing but I too - on my mom's side - have family that came over on the Mayflower. William Brewster, the 4th signer of the Mayflower Pact. Impressive I know.. It's been the big joke in our family that my mom's family came over on the Mayflower and my dad's family - Sicilian/Italin - was swimming behind it. Ha! Sooo, our families were ship mates.. Small world, huh???

    Forth, congratulations again and congratulations to your nominees. I will def. be checking out their blogs!

    1. Thanks Mimi!! I was actually going to pass it along to you as well but I saw that Roe got it from you so I didn't know how that worked.

      And we both are Mayflower people! Yes, we are awesome. It's a good thing your Mayflower person isn't Stephen Hopkins because then you would be related to Sarah Palin too.

  4. wait does that make me related to sarah palin also???????? if you really love me you will say no!!! lol

    1. Seeing that you posted as anonymous I can't tell you if you are or not. I am guessing this is either Jenn or Katie. If it is Jenn then no. If it is Katie, HAHA you win!

    2. are you kidding me...we share blood w/ palin.... can i request tina fey to play her as our family <3 KATIE :)

    3. HAHA no. It could be worse, we could be related to Obama.

  5. Thank you so much, Heather!!! I just re-posted. Do you have a Facebook page for your blogsite too?? I want to show you love there too :) Thank you again :)

    1. I do Jenn. It is I am still trying to figure out how to put the like button here. ANd I was happy to do it. You deserve it!
