You guys, I think people of the blogiverse are the sweetest, kindest, most thoughtful people in all the land.  The sweet and funny Erin of Popcorn, Pugs, and Peonies gave me the I Dig Your Blog Award.  I'm so touched that Erin thought of me.  If you don't know Erin yet, stop by and say hello.  You'll absolutely fall in love with her precious little puppies.  She has 3 - Petunia, Meatball, and Harriet.  Aren't those the just best puppy names?

So, the rules of the game:
Rule #1 - Thank the person who gave you the award.  Thank you Erin!!! :)
Rule #2 - Reveal three random facts about yourself.

Fact 1: I've read the Harry Potter series roughly seven times.  Each time a new book came out, I had to re-read the previous books in preparation.  Then, when the movies came out, I had to re-read the books before each movie.  Some books have been read more than others so I'm guessing seven would be the average.

Fact 2: When I was little (I would guess 1st or 2nd grade), I was obsessed with the movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit.  I still remember what I wore when my mom took me to see it in the movie theatre.  When it came out on video (VHS for all you young'uns), I begged my mom to rent it for me then proceeded to watch it 27 times in one week.  I watched it before going to school, when I came home from school, while I was doing homework, yadda yadda yadda.  It was basically on repeat until I went to bed.  That's what I call dedication.

Fact 3: I permed my hair in elementary school.  Well, I didn't do it personally - my aunt did.  It was a disaster.  I looked like a brunette French poodle.  I wanted it all cut off immediately so ... that's exactly what my mom did!  Chopped it into a nice flattering mushroom shape complete with feathered bangs.  Of course, this was right before school portraits so I have an everlasting reminder of that gorgeous 'do.  And to make matters worse, I made it to our regional spelling bee competition that year and the San Antonio Express news published a little story about me.  Guess which photo they used...

Rule #3 - Pass the award on.  I recently passed on an award to seven lovely ladies so I'm going to pick a few new ones this time.  But don't worry - I love you all and will hopefully be passing on some love to each of you at some point very soon. :)

  1. Oh my goodness, soooo funny! What DID you wear to the theater to see the movie?

  2. Whoops! That was me. I didn't sign in. =)

  3. I am so on the same boat with you with Harry Potter books. Which one is your favorite? I think mine is #3 and I cannot read #5 anymore, because the death in that book is too depressing! There is nothing out there where I get that level of obsession. Maybe I'll get into the girl with the dragon tattoo series, i've heard great things about it, but really haven't had a chance to read it yet.

  4. Woohoo! Congratulations and thank you! This is the third one I've gotten recently and haven't done a thing them, so best I get a move on.

    I really need to re-read the HP books (and buy the last one again, I had to leave my copy in Ireland, it was too heavy to take home). Such fantastic books. JK Rowling is amazing.

    That's hilarious about Roger Rabbit. I've never seen it!

    And your 'do? I had one almost exactly the same except mine was more closely cropped and missing a chunk out of my fringe from when I decided to give myself a haircut the morning of class photos. Nice!

    Thanks for the award! :)

  5. Your picture looks pretty much just like mine when my mom decided to perm my hair two days before class pictures. It makes me feel a tad better that I wasn't alone in my experience!

    PS - I'm following you via blogger now. Have a great weekend!

  6. I'm still obsessed with some movies...hahaha! And you know that hair isn't so bad.. I think it's cute.. You probably dont though..haha

  7. I'm currently reading the Harry Potter series for the first time. : ) I'm on book 4. Eep!

  8. Hey! Your hair looks like mine when I was 12! :-))
    I think in the eighties we all had to go through a perm.
