7 Things About the Mama of The "J" Family:
  1. I have uneven pupils due to the Chicken Pox turning into a severe case of the shingles when I was 5.  It put me in a coma for 5 days and the shingles covered my entire right side of my face.  The only yuck it left me with is a pupil that doesn't dilate, SLIGHT nerve damage on the right side of my forehead, and a minor scar on my eyebrow.  Holy moly am I blessed. Oh, and if you're wondering... I LOVE my uneven pupils.  It's me.
  2. I lived on an island for 8 months in 2004 for 8 months... in a TENT.  I lived my days teaching little kiddos how to snorkel, and teaching them about the wonders of the sea.  Those were some of the best days of my life.
  3. Speaking of the wonders of the sea.. I am Miss random facts when it comes to the ocean.  I guess you could say I'm slightly obsessed when it comes to "Big Blue".
  4. Hand me a bikini, my babes, and a body of water and I'm a happy camper.  I'm quite the Summer Time girl.
  5. My hair is currently the longest it's ever been (thanks to pregnancy), and I plan on keeping it that way.  I heart it.
  6. I am one of the biggest procrastinators you've ever met.  Procrastination should be my middle name.  I blame it on my huge dose of ADD that God blessed me with.
  7. I have 3 weird fears.  First and BIGGEST: Earthquakes.  Second: Lightning. Third: Being stopped under freeway bridges (I blame the earthquake fear).  I know... quirky fears.  But they get me.  Yuck.

I would like to grant this award to:
1. Ambrosia Clark
2. My Life, My World, My Blessings
3. L to the third
4. The Curious Pug
5. Ashley... plus three
6. My Paper Heart
