My 7 Facts:
(if you don’t remember my “fun facts” from this older post be sure to check it out)
1.  I am obsessed with picking my 2 year old’s boogers.  I know… gross.
2.  Speaking of boogers, when I would drive home from work I would wait to pick my nose until I got to a particular exit on the highway… every time.  It was my safe place where no one would drive past and see me pick 😀
3.  I’m afraid to walk barefoot in grass.  There are so many spiders out there!
4.  Another thing I’m afraid of… swimming in lakes.  You can’t see what’s below you.  Have you guys seen that show River Monsters?
5.  I usually try on 2-3 outfits when getting ready, only to throw in the towel and put on sweats.
6.  I stole $0.75 from Izzy’s piggy bank so I could have enough change to buy myself a Reeses Peanut Butter Blast from Sonic.  Definitely a bad mommy moment.
7.  I once had a cop run away from giving me a speeding ticket.  Let me paint the scene – I was 9 mths pregnant, past due, and had just left the salon where a woman WHACKED my hair off.  I was BAWLING on the drive home, and apparently speeding.  When I got pulled over it just made me cry more.  The officer asked me what was wrong.  My response (in between hysterical sobs) – “I’m fat… I’m past due… my hair is now ruined, and I look ugly.”  Poor guy stood their like a deer in headlights before he was able to run back to the squad car and high tail it out of there.

    These 7 things are the BEST! You made me smile. I loved them. I can so relate to numbers 4 and 5. Especially 4. I hate swimming in lakes – I only swim in things that are clear enough to see the bottom. I want to know what all is in there with me! And, wow, to my surprise my blog was at the bottom. Thanks!

    Okay. I am cracking up so bad I can hardly type! Boogers and theft and evading arrest – oh my! You are absolutely hilarious. And BTW, you are not the only mommy to borrow a few cents from a piggy bank 😉

    This is hilarious–you are a funny momma! Shelley I FINALLY blogged about your great award to me. I am so sorry it took so long–not a commentary on anything but my lack of memory and our busy schedules lately. THANK YOU for recognizing Calico and Cupcakes. I am truly appreciative! My favorite of your 7 facts is the story with the policeman. Ha, ha!

Meet Shelley
