First Award...woop woop!

I was so excited to check my inbox and see that I was awarded this by Amanda at The Beginning of Everything. Go check her out...she's pretty cool.

So the rule is, I tell you 7 facts about myself...Eww this could get boring! Here we go!

1. I HATE tomatoes. I mean, like with a firery passion. However, I do eat pizza/spaghetti sauce, chili, and salsa. It is different, I promise. I do NOT eat Hunts ketchup. It is liquid tomato. Yuck.

2. I was super obsessed with my sorority in college (Chi Omega). I even went to National Convention and thought it was "like, the funnest thing ever!". If this makes me cheesy and not cool, so be it.

3. My parents dated one month before they got engaged--he proposed because she broke up with him. They are still together 28 years later and more in love than ever. My sister and her husband were engaged after about 4 months of dating. My husband and I made it to 11 months (but they were long and we were ready!)

4. Both my hubs and I have eczema & BAD BAD allergies and I have terrible vision and asthma...our kids are doomed.

5. I'm obsessed with all babies--all colors, shapes, sizes. Like if you have one, don't come near me. I'll steal it.

6. My favorite blog is Enjoying the Small Things by Kelle Hampton. Even at work when I see she has posted, I minimize it until I know I will be able to read the whole post and then I refill my coffee mug and settle in. She is inspiring. I laugh, I cry, I love.

7. My mother & I have a strange obsession with Halloween.

Thanks, Amanda! That was fun!! Go check her blog out, y'all!

I am pretty sure I have never heard that about your parents. Seems like something they would share with the flower girl! :) And I could not agree more with not liking tomatoes. I too eat all of those things but if there are pieces of tomato seen, I push them to the side!

What about Heinz tomato catsup?

Kaitlin Godfrey said...

I have no idea why, but its different. Hunts tastes like straight tomatoes and sugar, but heinz doesn't to me....weird, I know.

Megan said...

Congrats on your award! I also HATE tomatoes, but eat ketchup and salsa. Haha. I think it's SO cool how fast your parents were engaged and that they are still so in love. My hubby and I were engaged within 5 months. When you know, you know!!

Thanks for passing this on to me!!

Jill said...

Kaitlin I'm so HONORED!! And fact #1 makes me laugh because you are NOT going to like a certain recipe post I have in the works! haha But my 7 facts will be coming first! Thank you so much!

My hubs and I both had braces, his teeth were moderately crooked, mine were just a big old train wreck ... our poor son is doomed there. And speaking of my son, he's just a baby, so I guess I better stay away from you!

Congrats on your award, what fun!

wow, your parents are legends. my hubs and i dated for 3 months and were married 3 months later. we were "older" though - 29 & 32 when we started (30 & 33 when married) so i guess we just knew what we were looking for!! :) you and your hubs are such a cute couple. congrats to you, newlyweds! marriage (to the right person of course) is the best thing ever. and you love babies?? have you seen the film "babies"?? i bet you'd love it!!

Amanda said...

Oh my gosh... I'm obsessed with babies too! And puppies. I totally know what you mean with Heinz vs. Hunts. Heinz is SO much better.


Claire said...

1) I am the exact same way, I swear I wrote that :P
I'm always intrigued by people who get engaged in such a short time-I couldn't imagine 1 month!
