Stephanie at Just the 2 of Us tagged me for this one...so here goes:
You must share 10 honest things about yourself and then choose 7 other people to nominate this award to!
10. I am terrified I will never get married. People always tell me 'you are still SO young', however, at almost 27 that just isn't true anymore. And if I never get married....
9. I am concerned I will never have kids. I see all these celebrities pop out kiddos at ages well over 40, but I don't want my kids' friends to think I am grandma! I also know you get thrown into the 'high risk' category at 35...and that's just around the corner for me. YIKES
!
8. I may have a touch of OCD. I check both locks on my back door and garage door, and the single deadbolt on my front door at least 8 times before I go to sleep. I have added opening the garage door to ensure the garage is closed all the way. It's bad...I will wake up in the middle of the night at least one time a night to check everything again.
7. I am extremely Liberal (not a very popular view for living in Texas). Extremely...here are some examples: I think drugs should be legal, I think prostitution should be legal, I am happy we don't have a Republican president. I think you get it so before I offend my few followers and readers I will stop.
6. I love my nieces as if they were my own children. Well, you know what I mean. Since I don't have human kids I can't really compare, but I do hope my sister and BIL have left the girls to me in their will. Of course I don't want anything to happen to them, but I would love raising the girls.
5. I have a crazy obsession/fondness/love for even numbers. And I often let it control my life. (Maybe I do have a full blown case of OCD.)
4. I love the students I teach. But, if given the opportunity, I would tell the majority of their parents how terrible they have done at raising them. (Again, since I don't have human kids I won't go in to detail, but manners, respect and common sense are often learned behaviors...I'm just saying!)
3. I let my heart influence too many important decisions. If you want examples, please ask, to me it's kind of sad and disappointing.
2. I insist that all closet doors and bedroom doors be closed. The only exception is when I sleep and I will not have the door closed when I sleep. (OCD is really looking serious now.)
1. I am blunt. If I don't like something I am going to say it...this especially applies at work!

I am going to tag as many people as I can for this, but since I don't have many followers I may duplicate what Stephanie did:
1. Krystyn @ Really, Are you Serious?
2. Papa Bear @ The Hall Family
3.
Rachel @ Clumsy Me, Oddity
4.
Stephanie @ A Little Bit of Sugar & a whole lot of Spice!
5. Tim (Yes, Tim. If Matt is doing it so can Tim!) @ Daugherty Family

Right..you don't have OCD. You forgot about the mirror thing, too. And, the curtains..and the number of paper towels.

And, yes, you are quite good to our girls.

You want 10 more honest things? I'm pretty sure calling myself Matt's sugarmomma and asking about passing gas take the cake for a while!

Well,I can see why we are friends! I have the SAME fear about not getting married and having kids... whats up with our sisters marrying HS Sweethearts?? haha
I too love my niece as if she were my own - and I can't wait for #2 to come along!!!
I always let me heart influence my decisions, but I have come to think that is something I like about myself rather then feeling sad about it... and blunt is the way to be - no sugarcoating - wish more people were like that!!

(and yes, you may have quite a large case of OCD... haha)

Ummm...Em? You have kind of a large case of OCD :) But we love you anyways!

I'm going to try to come up with my 10 things today. I've been super busy all week and not blogging. Oops!

And tagging Tim? Hahaha! He's never even on the blogs because he never blogs. I'm the one who keeps up with both. But I did email him about it for you :)
