7 Things About Myself
*I have a good amount in common with my award giver, which is why I enjoy reading her blog!  She’s around my same age and she got married a month before DH and I did.  She just started her family this year, and I’m hoping to do the same!
*All of the hanging clothes in my closet are organized in color order.  I even have DH doing it because he’s used to my system.  Bwah haha!
*I have a ridiculous amount of kitchenware, thanks to an old obsession with vintage 50’s stuff and an old part-time job at Williams-Sonoma.  It took one mover 6 hours to pack up my entire kitchen.
*I could spend 30+ minutes doing my makeup but have no patience for my hair.  I don’t want to bother drying it all.  I suck at styling and don’t bother.
*I waitressed for 9 years at a 50’s/60’s surf diner and worked at Jamba Juice for 4 years.  I can make you a milkshake or a smoothie, no problem.  I could even make you an egg cream, if’n you liked!
*As a child, I was mediocre at a lot of things, rather than being really good at one thing.  I dabbled in it all – Girl Scouts, little league baseball, tap, jazz, water polo, softball, choir, soccer, etc.
*I’ve always been pretty good at handicrafts.  My mom taught me to sew and my machine was the last gift she ever gave me.  I have a you-know-what ton of vintage 30’s/40’s/50’s patterns that I can’t part with, as well as fabric, despite the fact that I haven’t sat down to sew in a long time.
My Award Winners
Steph @ Watching Airplanes – Steph is going through the same stuff I am right now, namely a DH who just went from active duty to reserves.  Looking forward to reading about her experience with the transition!
Holly @ Life as a Navy Wife & Everything Else – Holly’s another milspouse struggling with fertility issues.  She’s also very outspoken, which is a characteristic I can relate to and appreciate!
Meagan @ Adapting to Change – Meagan’s another milspouse teacher and I like meeting others like me.  🙂

    Thanks for the award. I'll make sure to pass it on sometime soon. I want a sewing machine but my mom has one that is old as dirt and it works better than any new one so I always just go use hers.

    Steph, get yourself an old one then! My mom bought me a used Bernina that dates to '64. It's completely steel, heavier than all get-out, but it works fabulously!
