YAY for Awards!

YIPPY!! I got an award. I haven't gotten one in a while. I received this award from Rachel at Romancing Rachel. Thanks hun for the award! So now I have to tell you 10 things about me and then pass it along to 10 other wonderful bloggers.

10 Things About Me:

1. I have been in school for 20 years of my life. (And for 2 of the years that I wasn't a student in school, I was teaching!)

2. I have lived in 2 different countries, 3 different states, and 3 different cities in the state which I am currently living in.

3. I cheered for 8 years and for three of those years, I was on 2 teams at once (school and all-star competition teams). And when I was on 2 teams I was not driving yet...therefore my mommy had to drive me everywhere. (Thanks Mom for all you've done for me!)

4. A and I have been dating for almost 2 years. I miss him terribly and can't wait for him to get home! (Unfortunately that won't be happening anytime soon)

5. My favorite food is spaghetti. I could honestly live off of any short of carbs and water. (And yes, I know too much carbs in not good for me.)

6. Since A left for deployment in December, I lost about 5 lbs. While he was home on R&R, I gained 3-4 of it back. OOOOOPPPPSSS!!! So now I need to work extra hard to lose it again and lose an additional 10-15 before he gets back. :-)

7. My puppy is 2 1/2 years old. If not for her, I'm not sure if I'd be able to get through this deployment. Yes, I have a great roommate and great friends and family.

8. I sang in chorus throughout middle and high school. I miss singing.

9. I found out about my first teaching job only a month after graduating with my bachelors degree. I kind of miss teaching, however, I am enjoying being a student again and glad that I will be able to complete the program in 2 years since I'm in school full time.

10. I just cut out soda completely. Up until about a week ago, I would have 3-4 sodas per day. This past week I started cutting back and would allow myself 1 soda a day and today I went without one and didn't get a headache. :-)

And the 10 fab bloggers which I would like to share this award with are:
