Beautiful Blogger Birthday

My new friend over at Unforeseen Gifts nominated me for the "Beautiful Blogger" award. Erin and I met through this magical world of blogging. She also has a beautiful son with Down syndrome. Her daughter is quite adorable too of course! Thank you SO much, Erin. That is very sweet of you to consider Happy Jack as a beautiful blog.

Here are the "Beautiful Blogger" award rules.
1. Thank the person who nominated me for this award.
2. Copy the award & place it on my blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated me for this award.
4. Share 7 interesting things about myself.
5. Nominate 7 bloggers.

Seven interesting things about me...

1. I grew up in Kansas from fifth grade on. Every time we traveled on vacation, people always asked if we owned a television and lived on a farm. The answers are of course YES to the television and NO to the farm.

2. I love my big expanded immediate family (Mom, step-dad, Dad, step-Mom, sister, step-sister, step-brothers, half-brother and half-sister) and of course all the in-laws too! This is why I want four kids. I love big families. The more the merrier!

3. I learned to sew in 7th grade Home Ec class. Back then I made scrunchies and pillows, sassy I know. These days I like to make cute applique shirts for my son. My Mom also helped me out by giving me my natural sewing abilities.

4. I rarely get sick (knock on wood). The first ever antibiotic I took was after I gave birth to Jack.

5. I love meeting new people and making new friends. It probably helped having to make new friends in each city we moved (Illinois, Texas, Connecticut and Kansas). I especially love all the Moms I have met through my perfect son Jack with that extra special chromosome. I truly believe these Moms I have grown so close to (and you know who you are) will be in my life forever.

6. I met my husband at the only interview and only company I got offered a job after I graduated from college. He sat at the desk right next to me and we shared a center island work area. At first he thought I was snooty. And I thought he was obnoxious. Obviously we both changed our initial first impression and I am very thankful they hired me!

7. And last but not least......today is my birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
