Deb and Ellie both voted for this award for me. I am humbled and honored and frankly surprised that I have them so bamboozled! Brilliant? Me?? So as part of the deal, I need to answer questions from A to Z, nominate 7 other bloggers and pass on the award. 

A: Attached or single? Attached for the 2nd time to a 2nd man named Chris. No confusing names for me!
B: Best Friend? My sister Dana. 
C: Cake or pie? Pie all the way. 
D: Day of choice? Today. Every day is my favorite, especially if I wake up!
E: Essential item? My minivan. Never thought I would say that when I was tooling around in my RX7, but it is a definite kid essential. 
F:Favorite color? Yellow. Sun, daffodils, sunflowers.
G: Gummy bears or worms: Sour worms. Pucker up!
H: Hometown? Des Moines, Iowa
I: Indulgences? Baked Brie, toasted almonds and fresh french bread paired with a good wine. 
J: January or July? July, although it is not quite as nice here in southern texas....
K: Kids? Katie, Ashley, Levi, Ahren, Peri Brynn, 2 fur-babies and one large child named Chris (Only at practical joke time)
L: Life isn't complete without? Family. Purpose. Giving.
M: Marriage Date? 1st 10-8-88, second (and last) 2-22-02.
N: Number of brothers and sisters? One each.
O: Oranges or apples? Apples. 
P: Phobias? No real phobias. I have a mild fear of heights but since I was able to skydive i don't count it as a phobia. 
Q: Quotes? "I felt sad because I had no shoes, until I saw a man who had no feet" 
R: Reasons to smile? Ahren will be in my arms soon.
S: Season of choice? Spring and fall. 
T: Tag seven peeps? Sorry, I hate to tag others and seriously i don't think I have the brain function left to even THINK of 7 people who have not already been tagged. If you read this, you are tagged!
U: Unknown fact about me? I almost never shave my legs but have very little leg hair so it's all good. (OK, maybe that isn't such a secret to those closest to me.) 
V: Vegetable? Love them all except Lima beans. 
W: Worst habit? Biting my nails.
X: X-ray or ultrasound? Ultrasound. That how I saw each of my bio babies for the first time!
Y: Your favorite food? Cheese. Yum!
Z: Zodiac sign? Libra, the scales. I like balance, hate conflict. 

It has been confirmed that Ahren's DNA was taken monday. Woot! One step closer!!!!!
