Honest Blog Award!

The Rules:

1) Must thank the person who gave the award and list their blog and link it.
2) Share "10 Honest Things" about yourself.
3) Present this award to 7 others whose blogs you find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged you.

Thank you, Courtney, for this award! Like Courtney said in her post, I randomly found her blog one day but we've known each other for quite a while since we went to high school together! She has adorably handsome twin boys named Paxton and Kellen that are only a few weeks younger than Lexi and Lyla!

10 Honest Things About Me:
1. I worry A LOT. I worry about money, work, health, you name it. I worry about things I should worry about and I worry about things that I shouldn't worry about. I worry about the fact that I worry too much. Yikes.
2. I have an insane amount of guilt every time I leave my girls to go to work. I feel guilty and yet I know that they are being cared for by their Daddy, who loves them oh so much. This one might correlate a little bit with Number 1.
3. If I could be anything other than a pharmacist or stay-at-home-mommy, I'd like to be a sideline reporter. Think Erin Andrews, without the unfortunate hotel peeping tom issue.
4. A lot of people ask me if Josh and I will have any more kids. There are days when I think I would like more, and there are days when I wouldn't. If you asked Josh, the answer is a resounding...NO.
5. Speaking of kids, when I was pregnant I really wanted boys. Then we found out they were girls and I was SO excited. Now, if we were to have another baby at some point, I think I'd want ANOTHER girl. Crazy.
6. I made it through a twin pregnancy without a single stretch mark on my stomach. I marveled at this fact about a week after the girls were born. I then turned around and noticed stretch marks on my It doesn't get more honest than that, but I mean seriously?! I knew I was carrying one of the babies in there!
7. I love my husband. I don't say it enough, but I do.
8. I used to be obsessed with tv. I had probably 15 shows that I watched religiously. I now rely on DVDs but I'll never be able to catch up with all of my shows and that makes me sad.
9. I haven't had a hair cut in almost a year. I grew it out so I could wear it curly more often instead of straightening it. I'm now thinking about chopping it off...somebody help me decide!
10. I am AWFUL at making decisions. This drives Josh crazy, but really, can't he just decide for me?!
