First bloggy award!!

Thanks to Miranda over at A Carolina Nutshell for giving me this award!! It's my first blog award ever! So a very big THANK YOU!! :)


Rules:
{1} Post 5 random facts about yourself (pics are always good!)
{2} Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award.
{3} Pass award on to 5 other bloggers!
 
5 Random facts:
[one] The only fruits I eat are watermelon, with salt (a staple in the south!) and grapes, preferably straight off the vine.


[two] I gained 60 (!) pounds when I was pregnant with my daughter. She was born in July of 2008, it was a horrible pregnancy and being pregnant in the slap middle of summer in the South was awful! Thankfully, I lost all 60 pounds!
 around 25 weeks

30 weeks
 
yes, this is a picture of a picture...sorry!   
Exactly 1 month before I delivered Olivia. Those are 2 of my husband's cousins in the picture with me (I'm on the far right). We all 3 delivered our baby's within a month of each other! 
The finished product :)
 
 [three] I am the "black sheep" of my family. I was raised Southern Baptist, I'm talking my parents has me in church every time the doors were open. Well, once I turned 15 or so I started rebelling a lotta a little bit. I moved in with my now husband before we were married, I got pregnant before we were married, I smoke cigarettes, I drink. Neither one of my parents did or do any of these things. Thankfully though, they accept me and most importantly love me.
Me, my dad, my mom & my sister

[four] Me and my sister are VERY close. I know it sounds SO cliche but I really don't know where I'd be without her. She has given and still gives me so much advise about everything, kids, life in general, marriage, everything! She has been married for almost 9 years and she and her husband have 3 kids. Reed, who's almost 7 and Kate & Ryder, who will be 5 in June.
 My sister & her husband, Chris

Their kids and fur kids!

[five] Even though my green thumb is non-existent I love to plant flowers and shrubs. Seriously, I could do it all day long! Here are a couple of pictures of the ones in my yard:
 My favorite!
