7 Things About Myself
1- I'm a big Harry Potter fan. *LOVE*

3- I'm the youngest of three.
4- I would have a panic attack if my DVR was broken.

My Acceptance Speech:
I want to thank my Mom and my Dad for loving each other enough to make me, even if I was an "oops" baby. I want to thank my husband for putting up with my insane (but awesome) ways. I want to thank my kids for being in sync with their diaper-related activities so I do all the changing at once. And I want to thank myself for not changing who I am. What? Does that not count? Okay, I want to thank YOU then for making it this far if you are still reading... if you are not, I take it back.

I know I'll mention some who already received one of these but you have several to choose from, no excuses :D
11- C.M. Albert (Choose one of the bottom two or both)
12- Deanie Humprys-Dunne (The Very Inspirational Blogger Award)
