I received an award!

I am ecstatic to get my award from Elizabeth @

Thank you so much! I hope everyone checks out her blog.

So, here are the rules!

1. Thank and link back to the person that gave you the award.
Thanks so much!!!

2. Share 7 things about yourself.

a. I have lived overseas for a quarter of my life.
b. When I move back to the US to live permanently, I want to go back to the Midwest. I miss simple things like spring thunderstorms and sweet tea on the back porch.
c. I am an animal lover! Seriously, I wish I could run a no-kill shelter for a living, but I would take all of the animals home.
d. My favorite animal is a puffin. I have traveled to two different countries (which are not the US) just to see them in the wild. I failed on the first attempt and nearly failed on the second.
e. While most people love being associated with the military (i.e. military wife), I don't. I love the friends I have made and the experiences I have, but if Joel wanted to get today I would be thrilled. I want to stay in one place and buy a house and make a career for myself. So why I am super proud and will support him to my, yeah...
f. I HATE my apartment! All of my friends live in awesome houses, but my husband got his apartment before he met me and I lived with a roommate when we got married, so I had to move in with him. I keep thinking, only 11 more months, but I miss having a yard and my own driveway!
g. I am really undecided about what to do when I graduate soon. I work for the army now as an Admin Officer, but want to go a completely new direction when I graduate. One day I will decide what I want to be when I grow up...

3. Pass the award to 9 fellow bloggers that inspire you.

Ok, I promise I totally will! But I wanna think about it. I appreciate all of my followers (I find it neat that people care about what I do...and I do the same for you guys!) so I will get back to this.

Doesn't it suck not knowing what you want to be when you grow up? I have a master's degree and Im still not sure. The problem is that I want to be too many things. If you ever open that shelter, call me up, because I would love to do the same!
