What? Me a Sugar Doll?

I woke up this morning to find out that Sue has nominated me for the Sugar Doll award! I am to tell you ten things about myself, and then nominate some other deserving bloggers. I have to admit, I'm going to cheat a little -- here are the ten things I told Kerry over at Lemon-Aide.

1. I once licked a snail because my big sister told me they taste like bubble gum.
2. I hiked to the top of Squaw Peak in Utah my freshman year of college. I didn’t know they had a trail.
3. I think chocolate makes the world go around.
4. My husband gets a pedicure with me every month.
5. I went skinny dipping with my best friend at a public beach in the middle of winter.
6. I once caught a baby octopus.
7. I served a Mormon mission in France for 18 months when I was 21.
8. I have a bachelor’s degree in zoology.
9. I have six kids, which is the closest I’ve ever come to using my degree in zoology.
10. I’m working on writing a novel.

I'm nominating:

Forgetful Girl
Lyme Is Crazy
Alyson at Alysons CFIDS Blog

I cracked up at the first one! LOL! That was funny. And I eat the little buggers for dinner (Only when my Parisian mother makes them though).

I also loved the fact that your husband gets a pedicure with you! Hello! Is that not a great husband! Lucky you!

Those were great! Thanks for sharing.

Oh yeah! Congratulations!

Welcome, Dominique! I have since had escargot, and yes, I like it just fine. Apparently the key is in cooking them and slathering them in butter.

I'm so glad to see you discovered your award on your own because I realized today that I only did half the job yesterday in posting - I was also supposed to notify the winners! Sorry - it's been that kind of week...

I love your list - I had no idea you had a degree in zoology - how cool! You must be a wealth of information for your kids. Mine have always loved everything about nature and animals.

I'm glad to see you nominated PJ and Alyson - they were high on my list, too. I'll have to check out Forgetful Girl - this is the second time her blog has come up this week for me.

Six . . . I say again . . six!!! I would have loved a large family . . .sigh. I'm really enjoying these ten things about people. I think we should collect them all in a book.

Shelli said...

Jo -- it has been fun, hasn't it? I love the idea of collecting them in a book. And yes, six kids, everyone of them a joy and a blessing. You know, most of the time!
