Blog On Fire Award!

So a few days ago, one of my favorite bloggers on here sent my way the ★Blog On Fire Award!★ award. How sweet of her. And normally, I never get around to following the rules for these things by posting them up for other bloggers to enjoy but today is your lucky day because I decided to follow the rules and do it right this time!

So a big thank you to Destiny over at ★Rockin Mama★ (she is completely amazing and her blog really rocks!) I love getting awards and so now getting onto my part of this. So you should check her out if you haven't because her blog is filled with some awesome reading.

The rules are that if you receive this, you say a few things about yourself that you want to share with the rest of the world and then pass it on to others.

1. I was on a bowling league for 10 years. It was the only sport my parents would let me and my brother play when we were little. It paid off though. One lots of competitions and awards that are still stacked up in my parents house. We got to travel all over for tournaments. I won a lot for my age group. It was awesome. I own many of my own balls and shoes :) Later, I played lacrosse in high school.

2. When I was in school, I was obsessed with homework. I was that kid in school that begged to have 50 page papers to write over the weekends. Yea, I wasn't very popular if you couldn't tell.

3. My favorite animal is the penguin. It has been since I first watched the Chipmunk Adventure when I was about 4 years old and became quite obsessed with them.

4. I had a vendetta against Santa Claus growing up because he promised me a penguin in my bathtub sitting on ice Christmas morning when I was 5 years old. When I woke up, there was not a penguin but a stuffed duck. I stayed up every year since then planning on ways to kill Santa and get my revenge for not getting me the penguin he promised.

5. I am the biggest horror movie goer you will ever meet. No scary movie can scare me at all. I used to be scared and then one day, it stopped and I have been trying ever since to find a movie that would scare me. I watch them non stop to see if something can get my heart pumping. I even went to the theater and saw Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 days before I gave birth to my daughter and fell asleep from boredom in that movie.

6. I have an obsession for Russian names. I refuse to name my kids anything other then a Russian name. Which explains my daughters name and the fact she was named after the Russian chick in the James Bond Goldeneye game.

7. I am very superstitious. I have a big thing with numbers and plans. For every even day there must be two odd numbers to correlate.
Example: My wedding date - 01-24-09
My birthday - 03-21-82
My daughters due date was - 11-01-06
I just have a thing with odd numbers being lucky. Yea, I know, I'm weird in that way.

8. I have an addiction to Bridezilla and Ghost Adventures. I can't miss either one ever!

9. I have never owned a dog my entire life. I have a huge fear of dogs and cannot get over the fact of ever trying to get myself to be around one. Hubby wants to get one, but I think it would bring on a heart attack if I ever agreed to it. Even a poodle would make me go into shock.

10. I love moving. I can't live in a place longer then a year. I love moving so much because of my childhood (Army Brat-moved around wayyyy too much). Now its hard to sit in one place. This brings on a big fear of actually owning a house because as much as I want to so bad, I don't think I would do good at having to stay in one place.

So now I am passing this award on to some great bloggers on here (in no particular order). Check these blogs out!
