Beautiful Blogger Award

So, I was nominated for a sweet award by a fellow military spouse over at Educating Crumpet! Thank you so much for the nomination! This is my first award! Whoohoo...yay for another blog first!

The rules for this award are as follows:

Thank the person who kindly passed this to you, and link your award back to them.
List 7 things about yourself.
Pass it on to 15 blogs that deserve a Beautiful Blogger Award. (I think this might be too many, so I'll just do one...sorry!)
Let them know they earned this award.

1.  I never ever pictured myself as a happy stay at home homeschooling mom, and until I had my second...I wasn't.
2. I'm 23 and have my bachelors in Criminal Justice...I would love to work for the FBI one day, but right now I feel like it's most important to be here for my girls(and unknown baby) until we all adjust to this new deployment schedule.
3. I LOVE TO READ...anything except for most biographies. I'm a sucker for fantasy books, like Twilight, Harry Potter, JD Robb, Percy Jackson, and the classics!

4. I'm learning that contentment and happiness aren't the same, but being content leads to being happy.
5. I really want to go exploring with the girls this summer...maybe a road trip to Amish Country, or to the Capital!

6. I'm fluent in American Sign Language, and have started to encourage Kaelyn and Anna to use it more frequently.
7. I'm not very fashionable...I much prefer to have solid classic cut t-shirts with a few "edgey" ones and great accessories than anything else. It actually annoys Ryan. He says if I find a shirt that fits and I like it, I will buy every color...he's right!

I will nominate Leslie over at Peachy Keen.

I know sign language too, i wanted to work with deaf preschoolers.

Awww, thanks! I'll do a post on it when I get back from my Scrapbooking weekend. (Yipee!)

Don't know that I realized you did Criminal Justice - cool!

I'm a reader, too. I'm constantly losing even more sleep than usual because I'm too near the end of a book to put it down. :)

I was fluent in ASL when I was in middle school, but so much of it is gone now. We have done some signing with T and it has been SUCH a help! I'd love to take a few classes and really up my vocab again sometime.

Oh, and Amish country sounds VERY cool! Maybe THAT could make the hubs put down that iPhone for afew hours....Nah, who am I kidding?!? haha!

Have a good weekend, honey!
