I Received My First Blogging Award!!!

This is a very exciting evening for me as I have been awarded my very first blogging award. The prestigious “Kreativ Blogger” award was bestowed upon me by a well respected blogger whose blog you can view at http://www.plainolebob2.blogspot.com/ I would just like to take this moment to thank Bob Byford for honoring my blog in this way. Part of receiving this award is that I have to tell my fellow bloggers 7 things that they may not already know about me. This is actually a very interesting task so I think I am going to have a little fun with it…

1. I was born in the United States, however, I was taken by my parents to Spain at the age of 10 months. My father is a native Spaniard and I ended up being raised there until the age of 8 years old.

2. Despite the fact that I had been vaccinated against it, I contracted Polio when I was a young girl. Luckily, since I had been vaccinated, my body fought it and I did not suffer any long term paralysis.

3. I am deathly afraid of Waterbugs. My phobia is so great that I have been known to run out of a house upon spotting said offensive insect. The fact that it was the dead of winter did not deter me from running out into the freezing cold in my pajamas to escape.

4. Liars offend me. I cannot be around dishonest people and I am not good at lying so I tend not to do it. If you are a liar, keep it moving.

5. I speak three languages, English, Spanish, and Galician. Unfortunately, my Galician is not as fluent as it should be due to a lack of people to practice my conversation with who speak this language here in the States.

6. My favorite European country to visit is Portugal. I made a pilgrimage to Our Lady of Fatima and I absolutely fell in love with the country.

7. Last, but not least, I love drinking Dr. Pepper. It is my favorite drink of all time. I know some people don’t like the taste of it but they don’t know what they are missing…
