Here is how this award works:
- Say thanks to the one who sent it to you (I did that above).
- Tell us 7 things about you (see below).
- Pass it to 15 followers/friends (see below).
Seven things about me (I'm trying to think of things I have never mentioned on my blog before, things you probably don't already know about me)
1. I was Mrs. Utah 1995
2. I got married at 18 (gasp!) and everyone told me that it would never last. Here we are 2 short months shy of 25 years, and still going strong.
3. After everyone told me it would never last, they ALL said it over and over again when we got pregnant 3 months after we got married.
4. Our first wedding anniversary was spent at a nice restaurant with me sitting so far from the table (thanks to my VERY large, pregnant tummy) that I spilled everything on my stomach trying to get it from the table to my mouth!
5. My most embarrassing moment: Once a date took me swimming. As I was climbing the ladder out of the pool, with him behind me, he said, "Karen, you have a hole in the back of your swimsuit." Okay, embarrassing enough. I went to the restroom to check and noticed that it was more than a hole. The back end of my swimsuit had come unstitched and my whole rear end was exposed! OH MY! I'm glad I can laugh about it now.
6. I have lived in 9 different states (West Virginia, Utah, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Colorado, New Mexico, Kentucky, Idaho, California).
7. I like to fold laundry. I know, weird!
