I'm a Winner!

Tuesday I had surgery, coming out of anesthesia isn't all that pleasant.  Once I got to my suite, regained my senses, and felt less like death I fired up the iPad and checked my emails.  In my email I found that Graceful Disaster...Life, Parenting & Humor   commented on my post regarding the pre surgery liquid diet.  In said comment she notified me that she had given me the Liebster Award!  Thank you so much Graceful Disaster, I appreciate it and it is quite humbling.  It brought my first legitimate post op, out of anesthesia smile...priceless.  Many thanks!

Here are the rules:  

1. Choose 5 up & coming blogs to pass the Liebster Award on to.  Each blog must have less than 200 followers. 

2. Show your thanks & appreciation to the blogger than gave you the award by  linking back to them.

3. Share 5 random facts about yourself.

4. Post the award to your blog.

Five Random Facts:

1.  I'm not sure how random this fact is but it's the first that comes to mind.  My name is April.  Yes, as in the fourth month. Believe it or not I was born in this month.  Big props to my parents for using the first thing they could think of.  (Just kidding)  This has brought relentless teasing though life such as "Oh I bet your middle name is MAY bahahaha."  ...No it's not.  

2.  I despise "chick flicks."  So and so feel in love?  Well that's great, I don't care.  Give me a good ol fashioned horror show and I'll be satisfied.  

3.  Mashed potatoes without gravy is my favorite food.  Yes, I'm the girl who you may or may not have seen in a restaurant ordering mashed potatoes as a meal.  Sorry Emeril, none of that fancy stuff for me BAM just salt and butter please! 

4.  To me, the term dressing up means "nice" jeans and a "fancy" top with the possibility of some sort of matching flip flop.   I'm 33 years old maybe sometime soon I'll embrace a little bit more fashion sense, then again maybe not.  I prefer comfort to feeling like there's a stick up my ass.  

5.  I'm the kind of Mom who yells at her boys for playing video games wrong.  Whether it's using the spacebar to jump or R1 to aim, I'm always there to teach them the important things in life.  Someday, they'll thank me.  lol.

Drumroll Please...
