More awards!

The blogiverse was definitely a lot more exciting yesterday than my job.  Two awards in one day, you spoil me!  Much obliged, people, this has been a lot of fun!

Lacey decided that my blog is pretty fabulous!


Rules
1. Thank and link back to who gave you the award.
2. Answer the awesome questions Listed Below
3. Pass it along to newbie blogs or Blogs that are new to you that you Absolutely love...dont forget to share why you picked them!
4. Leave the recipients a note telling them about the award.



Questions
1.  What is the one thing you love to treat yourself to...that you rarely do?  These days, makeup! Even DH said the answer before I wrote it!  With money being as tight as it is, I haven't bought any new makeup in a while.  I'm pretty proud of my no-buy that's going on right now.  It's out of necessity, but it's working.  Fondue comes in a close second!
2.  What book have you read that has just opened your eyes or touched you deeply?  I totally answered this question already during my 30 Days.  It was my first Women's Studies textbook.
3.  If you were reincarnated as an animal/drink/ice cream flavor, what would it be?  I'm going to answer all three.  The animal would be a manatee.  I just love those damn sea cows!  They always look like they're smiling and ready for a hug, AND they're lazy!  Sounds like the life for me!  As for a drink, I'd be a Chocolate Egg Cream - complex, yummy, unique!  If I were an ice cream flavor, I'd be blue bubble gum!  Unexpected, hard to find, playful!
4.  What celebrity do you get mistaken for?  When I had bangs, someone told me I looked like Debbie Gibson.
5.  Where is Waldo?  Hanging out with his girlfriend.  You know, that broad in the striped shirt.  Yeah, and their dog too.  Probably off God knows where, doing something naughty where you can't find them.  The dog is just watching.


One of my BFFs, Taryn, thinks I'm pretty versatile!


Rules
1.  Thank and link back to who gave you the award.
2.  Share 7 things about yourself.
3.  Pass it along to blogs you've recently discovered and enjoyed.
4.  Leave them a note telling them about the award.

Seven Things
1.  I love reality TV - the trashier the better!  I'm not talking about things like The Bachelor or Survivor, I'm talking about the sort of crap Vh1 puts on.  LOVE it!
2.  Even though I am a math teacher, I didn't like math in high school and I flunked my college Calculus class.  Math comes pretty easy to me (except when you get into Calculus) and I'm really happy I pursued it in my teaching career.
3.  I was part-owner of a motorcycle (DH's H-D Softail) before I'd even ridden on one.  I've never looked back!
4.  I wish I could go back and redo my undergraduate education now that I've grown old enough to really appreciate it and take advantage of the opportunity.
5.  I'm a better baker than cook, I'm a better makeup artist than hairstylist.
6.  Christmas feels weird when you're not on the beach in Mexico.  Seriously.  Best way to spend the holiday!
7.  I love flying and I love the airport!  I love the excitement of going places!  I need to pick up that book about the author in residence in Heathrow airport!

I don't want to seem rude by not paying it forward, but since I just awarded the Versatile Blogger award to my favorite new blogs, I'll wait until I'm feeling inspired again!  I've been reading some great blogs lately and it's been great getting to know other milspouses!

Thanks lady! I have fun doing it! If I wasn't worried about if I'd upset DH by being so public, I'd probably be even MORE honest! I have to be careful about how much I reveal about what students say/do as well, which is a bummer because I have some great stories!
