So I know you y'all hear me talk a lot about my bff Laura from The Life and Times of Laura, well she has given me my first award!!!! How awesome is that!?!?! This is one of the main reasons that I have been doing some major reconstruction to my blog. If I am going to post this award, then I am going to give it justice! 

Award Rules:
1) Link back to the person that awarded this to you. 
2) Share 7 random things about yourself:

    * My favorite snack is crushed saltine crackers in milk..... I know what you are thinking because I hear it from my husband all the time.

     * I secretly love that my son is obsessed with Scooby Doo because this allows me to curl up on the couch and relive some of my favorite episodes from my own childhood favorite..... or maybe I programmed my son this way...hehe

     * I come from a very large family where I am the oldest out of 15 grandchildren. But because of the age difference between myself, my cousins, and my aunts and uncles, my younger cousins call me Aunt, my aunts and uncles consider me their youngest sister, and I  occasionally have a problem of acting more like a mother to my siblings then their sister.... I am working on this one.

     * I grew up on a family farm where we grew our own vegetables and fruits, raised chickens, cattle, pigs, turkeys, and geese. I canned in the hottest parts of summer and plucked feathers from chickens whenever the freezer ran low. I grew up racing 4-wheelers and dirt bikes down gravel roads, fishing, hunting, trapping, and all the fun farm projects like building fence and bailing hay.
     * I started driving when my feet were long enough to reach the pedals. So I have been driving sense I was 10 years old!

     * I will graduate in December with a duel bachelor's degree in Special Education and Elementary Education. I went into Special education because 1: I love working with students who have difficulties in with school. They are shining starts in my eyes! and 2: I had a lot of difficulty when I was in school so I feel that many students are misunderstood and cast off.

     *My life starts and stops with my son Jaydon. He is my life, my star, my sun and my moon. He is the reason for who I am today, what I have accomplished and how far I will go. He has saved my life in more ways then anyone would ever understand. I love him with all my heart, my mind, my soul.

 3) Award other blogs!
I don't know if you can do touch backs, but of course I will sneak one back to bff Laura.... Although I will not make her fill this out again hehe...
