Stylish Blogger Award

Missy over at ...And Baby Makes Three and Shan over at Sweet Stellas have just given me the Stylish blogger Award.  I'm so flattered!  I really write these posts as an escape for me and I love that other people read (and dare I say enjoy, at least a little) my posts.

Now on to the rules that come with receiving this award....
1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award!

Seven things about myself:

1. My favorite thing to do in the summer is ride my purple motorcycle.  I didn't get to ride last summer because I was busy growing a healthy baby but I look forward to taking a few rides when the weather gets warm.  My husband and I have traveled around the country with our bikes.
2. Most of you probably can tell I'm a little anxious, but I'm also claustrophobic.  I've practically pushed people out of the way to get out of an elevator.  I hate the feeling of being trapped.
3. I sucked my thumb until I was in third grade.  I also had a stuffed puppy that I slept with until I was in college. 
4. When I started going to college I was certain I didn't want to be a special education teacher - I only wanted to be a classroom teacher.  Now I can't picture doing anything but teaching special education!
5. I worked just about full time all the way through 4 years of college.
6. I met my husband in high school.  He was a varsity wrestler and I was a wrestling team manager.  I actually asked him out first - we went to the Winter Ball together.  Who would have thought almost 11 years later we're still together!
7. I might have a borderline shopping addiction.  One reason I was excited to go back to work was because whenever I'm bored and at home I always end up at a store and always buy something I don't need that I'll probably end up returning later (which is another reason to go back to the store!).  I think I've funneled that energy into budgeting, bargain shopping, trading, and coupon clipping but sometimes I just can't help myself!

Award ten great bloggers: (I had to change it to 10 because many of the blogs I read already received the award!)
