My Very First Award!



Woot! When I found out I got an award from the lovely and very funny CarissaJaded, I was super pumped. I always see these random awards on other people's blogs and I will admit I was a wee bit jealous. But now I have my very own award and all is right with the world. If you haven't visited Carissa at CarissaJaded, get your butt over there because she will crack you up. Seriously, I laugh out loud at least once during every one of her posts.

First, I am going to pay it forward with this award and give it too...dum, dum, dum:

Erinific
Where's My Piece of Cake
Tidbits From My Mind

I just recently started reading all these blogs, and I love them all! They are all part of my daily blog reading. Check them out!!

Now for 7 random facts about myself:
1) I am a huge history nerd. Right now I am very into WW2 history and read every possible book/see every possible movie I can on this topic. I believe this fascination started when I was going through my grandfather's old photos and found a random snapshot of Hitler.
2) My favourite city in the world is New York City. I would so love to live there one day. My favourite country is Germany and I would love to live there one day too.
3)I spend a large portion of my days thinking about where I want to travel to next. My travelling list is overwhelmingly long, but that never stops me from adding more places to go.
4) I want to write a book someday.
5)I am an only child. While I was never lonely growing up, I wonder all the time what it is actually like to have a sibling.
6) I love Canada, and I am extremely proud to be Canadian. I think it is an amazing country and I'm irritated at myself for not yet taking the time to fully explore it.
7) I daydream constantly, hence my blog title. There are so many times every day I find myself just staring off into space, then suddenly snapping back to reality hoping nobody noticed. It's a problem.

Okay, that's it!
Tonight I am going to a "Laughter Club" with one of my friends. I have no idea what to expect, but I imagine it is going to be pretty great. My friend thinks it is going to be, and I quote, "a lesson on how to laugh in different ways." To that I said, "what???" Because that would be ridiculous. "Laugh like a British person", "Belly laugh". Ummm no. I"m thinking it will be more along the lines of making other people laugh. Lame knock knock jokes and such. I will see soon enough! I have a great joke up my sleeve just in case!

Happy Wednesday!

An award?!? For ME?? I HEART YOU! I have never won an award and I was also more than a teensy bit jealous when I saw them on other people's blogs.

Re: your list... I'm also an only child and Canadian! We moved to the US when I was 6, but I was born there and am still a proud citizen. I would love to get back there someday and show Mr. Husband how wonderful Canada is!

I thought I commented on this earlier but I guess I never published it!! Thanks for all the good words!! Also, I have to know the outcome of this Laughing thing! I am so curious!

@ Erin...no problem! Where abouts in Canada were you born? You should definitely come visit! I would give you the grand tour of Niagara!

@ Carissa...Laughter Club, it never happened. Did you ever have one of those friends that always makes grandiose plans but never follows through? I do. Blah. I so wanted to go to Laughter Club too, especially after I found out it is run by "Suzy the happy nurse". Apparently we are going to go in nov. though, I will report back if it happens!
