Blog on Fire

Jo over at Bum Bum Germs gave me an award this week. The rules are I'm to write seven things about myself, and then give the award to five other bloggers. Thanks, Jo!

So, here goes:

1) I always underestimate the time a task will take me. In fact, just now I spent NINETY MINUTES cleaning out my upper cabinets. I'd sectioned an hour for BOTH the upper and the lower cabinets. Fail.

2) I bite my nails. My mother says I've been biting them since before the babies' age. So far, they don't bite their nails. YAY FOREVER. Last week I'd been able to let my nails grow for two or maybe even three weeks. The nails hadn't even reached the end of my fingers at that point. Gross. I'd really like to pain my nails, too. Anyone have any suggestions?

3) I have no idea what my future looks like. The only thing I know about it is that my family will be there. That's all I need to know, to be honest.

4) Autumn is my favorite season. I particularly miss Connecticut at this time of year. Quite sharply actually. The hoodies, the flannels, the boots, the jackets, the pumpkin spice lattes, the leaves -- they all fill me with hope and joy for some reason. Florida may not have changing vibrant leaves, but it does have amazing autumn sunsets.

5) I ate sushi and went to a three-hour movie six hours before I gave birth. (In my defense, they were early. In defense of the sushi...whatever, I do what I want. Oops.)

6) On the rare occasions I sing karaoke, I'll usually sing You Give Love a Bad Name by Bon Jovi.

7) Halloween is my favorite holiday, but I still don't know what to dress the girls as. The possibilities...

Now, to give this award to 5 blogs that are awesome:

- Aias dot ca; This blog is topnotch. Hilarious, cute, wonderful, clever and smart.
- Crazy About My Baybah; An intimate peek into family life, full of love, happiness and a dash of sarcasm here and there.
- Heart Shaped Leaves; A crafty, cooky blog, but with the event of a new baby in the mix, lots of squishy newborn pictures!
- The Woman Formerly Known as Beautiful; a blog right up my alley, plus she just outstripped me on Babble's list, so you know she's got to be good!
- Diaries of a Grumpy Grateful Mom; honest, genuine, down and dirty and yet full of light, this blog will make you laugh.

If you like this blog, please vote on Tales of an Unlikely Mother is number 17, just scroll down and click on the thumbs up! Thank you so, so much.


  1. I always find the two of us have the strangest things in common, for example, number 6 lol.

  2. I quit drinking coffee and an unexpected side effect was that I stopped biting my nails without even trying!

  3. I've bitten my nails all my life, with brief periods where I let them grow. Then gnaw them off again a month, two months, three months later.

    I quit biting them when I got pregnant, because of all the germs. (Can you believe this OCDer BITES HER NAILS??) So far it's lasted, and recently I went and got my first set of acrylics. They actually look really awesome--I keep them short, and they look natural. I had a great lady do them.

    So if you can get your nails long enough to do acrylics, I highly recommend it. Because then not only does the urge to bite go away, you CAN'T bite them.

  4. So you're THAT Unlikely Mother who blew by me on Babble. Damn you! However, you did give me an award which kind of mitigates the whole Babble debacle. Thanks for liking my blog and I'm gonna like you back. xo TWFKAB

  5. CND brisa nails. I'm not kidding you can't bite that shit off. Takes some maintanence and isn't cheap but if you have the cash laying around (or are really motivated to find it!) go see a CND nail tech. From one nail biter to another!

  6. Congratulations on your award! And thank you! I don't usually bite my nails, but I pick at them. It drives my husband crazy! Sometimes I do it just to bug him. Hehe.

    Our future is a little up in the air right now too, but I feel exactly the same way. As long as I have my family, that's all I need to know.

  7. Hahhahaha! we match up totally on all the ODD numbered points of fact about YOU! LOL

    Regarding #5...with my second baby it was The Sweetest Thing w/ Cameron Diaz... I remember it so well :)

  8. Wait are you sure that WE aren't Twins? I bite my nails, Halloween is my favorite holiday, autumn is my. Favorite season, we both live in Florida and have identical twin girls! Following you back it's nice to see that people actually survive twins!
