Photo Challenge - Day 1

Hi Peeps! Long time no . . . blog?

I've been pretty busy getting the It's Mamalicious shop up and running. If any of you out there are thinking of starting a work -at-home type business, I'm here to tell you, PROMOTE YOURSELF ON FACEBOOK!

It's Mamalicious

Promote your Page too

My friends inside the computer have been very helpful ;)

I've got a longer post brewing about the ins and outs of starting a business, but I want to marinate on that for a little bit longer. (Try to contain your suspense!)

Instead, I'm here today with pictures.

I'm sure you guys have seen people on Facebook or on other blogs doing the 30 day photo challenge, or some version thereof. Right?

I decided I want to play too! So here's Day 1's assignment - a photo of myself with 10 facts.

Note to self - get picture taken with actual camera, not phone.

 Ok, there's me. Annnnnnnnd . . . here's some facts.

1. I have two "dream jobs". One is a professor of Feminist Literature and Ancient Mythology at a pretty college near a beach. The other is to be the person who chooses songs that go on movie soundtracks. Not the score, the soundtrack. I'm sure these two choices say something about me, but I'm not sure what.

2. I am a mom of preemies. They're 9 now, but it still counts. This may seem more like a fact about them than a fact about me, but if you're a preemie mom, or know any preemie moms, you understand that "Preemie Mom" is now as much a fundamental part of my make up as my eye color or sense of smell.

3. I'm an avid doodler. (Wow, was THAT a random sentence or what?) Do not pen and paper unattended around me. I will scribble, draw boxes, write my name repeatedly, draw flowers and kindergarten houses. I'm still paying attention to what's going on around me. (Maybe) But there will be doodling.

4. It's really hard to think of facts that might be vaguely interesting to other people. Go ahead,  you try it.

5. I have trouble being "fake nice". That sounds like a good thing, sort of. But it's not. See, you need fake nice. You need it EVERY.DAY. At the grocery store, at the bus stop, around the neighborhood. I'm pretty sure my "fake smile" looks like I'm constipated.

6. I like to create. In any way. I write, I sing, I dance (not necessarily well). I draw, I paint, I build. (Again, not necessarily well). I sew, I knit, I crochet. (Ok, those I do well.) (Well-ish). I am particularly fascinated by the idea of a finished product made my my hands - something that can be useful or just fun to look at.

7. I am a spiritual person, but my spirituality is definitely a journey. I don't have it all figured out, and I tend to be wary of people who think they do. But I am constantly striving, working, thinking, praying, hoping for a better understanding. And yes, I do believe in God.

8. On a lighter note, I think peanut butter and chocolate should grow together on the same tree. Really, why should they ever be separated? Oh, wait. Jelly.

9. I'm nauseatingly in love with my husband. Like high-school crush infatuated, cheesy Hollywood love story swoony, kinda sorta obsessive but not in a creepy way LOVE. It's ok, I think he likes it.

10. I only watch about an hour of television a week. I never used to watch at all, but then I discovered How I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory. If you have not seen these shows GO NOW and watch them all. Hurry hurry!

Ok, so that's it for me. I wonder if anyone will come back tomorrow for Day 2 of the photo challenge. What will it be? Have my facts scared everyone off? Will I even remember to blog tomorrow?

You'll have to tune in to find out.
