"I would like to thank the Academy"

Thank you for the nominations ladies....Mandy's Journey, Canadian Girl with a Band and Jewel in the Rough.  Immmm nnnooootttt wworrrrthy!

I am still very new to the blogging world so I hesitated when I was first nominated. (Do I even follow 15 yet????)  anyways, thank you girls.  Here is a list of 7 things about me and my nominations.

1.   My name is spelled Tanja on my birth certificate.  My mom is from Germany and that is how she spelled it.  I didnt know until I was 14.  My grandma told her to spell it with a y.  My dear mom was learning english so she didnt fight it.
2.   I only have one child.  I had a hysterectomy last year and sometimes still grieve for the girl I will never have.
3.   I am a baby christian.  I was saved last year.  I was headed for no good when God slapped me silly and told me to wake up.
4.   I am unemployed and really wish I could afford to stay home for good.
5.   I am a bit bossy but trying to change that about myself.
6.   I ate a whole box of Girl Scout cookies in one day but you have to admit, the boxes are small.  I know I know ~(head lowered in shame)~
7.   I am totally and utterly addicted to blogging and reading blogs and I love you all.
