Liebster and the GINORMOUS Bee

Liebster- favorite/dearest
I had every intention of doing this yesterday, but I was an old woman and went to bed at 7 last night.
So as I said on Monday, I was given this award and I am super excited about it!
Now, I have to follow the rules.
Here are the rules:)

1. Choose five up and coming blogs to give the Liebster award to. Blogs must have less than 200 followers.
2. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
3. Post the award on your blog.

4. List the bloggers you gave the award to with links to their sites. Leave a comment on their blogs to let them know they've recevied the award.
5. Share five random facts about yourself!
Maybe another reason I didn't do this yesterday is because ALL of your blogs are awesome, I love them all.  I have trouble picking out shampoo....so this is tough! I know that a lot of you will receive the award from the 5 ladies I picked, so that makes it a little easier.
Here are my final 5:
Lauren @ TIPPEE CANOE 
Mrs. Robinson @ My New Wife Life 
Crystal @ Skittle Bug 
Cassie @ Ben & Cassie
Michelle @ On The Adventure
Ok. 5 Random facts about myself?
1. I am terrified of hot air balloons. Why? I have no clue.  All I know is that if I see one, I want to vomit. Seriously, just thinking about it now, makes me want to barf. gross. Balloons shouldn't be allowed to be that big.
2.  I am 5'9.  I didn't wear heels until after I met Tyler.  I was always afraid that if I wore heels, I would randomly meet my future husband and would be towering over him.  Now that I have my hubby, I wear them ALL the time. Everyday (almost). 
3.  I'm not a violent person.  I'm not mean.  However, I do get annoyed by a few certain people...and sometimes I daydream about casually tripping them. I know, I KNOW...how terrible.
4.  I am addicted to caramel frapes from McDonalds (I don't have a Starbucks close by, and these are amazing!)
5.  It bothers me when people use "your" and "you're" incorrectly. It's not that difficult!


Quick story.

I came home from work today and was pleasantly surprised when I saw that my husband had started building our deck.  I stood on the porch and admired him while he put his tools away for the day.  When he had finished, he walked up on the porch to talk to me.  I told him about my day and asked about his.  He told me (in a very in depth manor) about his day, but I didn't hear a word he said.  All I could think about was the HUGE bee that was quickly approaching the side of his face. I stood there in amazement as I watched my crazy husband act like the monster bee was no big deal. The bee bumped against his beard.  And still, no reaction.  Then the bee flew around his cheek and went straight for his nose.  He immediately jumped back and swatted the bee repeatedly.  HOLY CRAP! That's the biggest bee I've ever seen!!!  I was confused.  Why was he acting so surprised?  Why hadn't he swatted at it when it was beside his face? So I asked him.  Babe, why didn't you swat at that bee 5 minutes ago?  What do you mean? That sucker came out of nowhere!  Um. No. That bee was right beside your face for like 5 minutes before it decided to dive at your nose.  Autumn! And you didn't you tell me?? You know that, when I wear my glasses, I can only see things right in front of my face. 
You know when I said, "I stood there in amazement as I watched my crazy husband act like the monster bee was no big deal."? 
DUH! OF COURSE he was acting like the biggest bee on earth was "NO BIG DEAL"!... He had no idea the GINORMOUS bee was even there! He couldn't SEE IT!
(He can't see at all without his contacts/glasses.  And, of course he can't see peripherally when he wears his glasses...glasses only go in front of your face.)
So in reality, I just stood there, watched, and did absolutely nothing as the biggest bee in the universe, planned to attack my poor, blind husband's face.

 I'm such a good wife.

hahahahahaha oh my gosh! That is so funny! I am TERRIFIED of bees. Really, insects of any kind. So I'm impressed you were even able to stand there with a bee of that stature was that close.

hahaha! Well, we were about 4 feet apart....I think I was too busy wondering why he wasn't doing something about it, to be scared for myself!

Oh my goodness, I love, love that you are 5' 9", this girl is 5' 10".. so you get it. you get it.

Way to go husband saver.. way to go!

Crystal ~Skittle Bug~ said...

Aww! Thanks for the award, darling! Also, that bee story is awesome and TOTALLY something that would happen with me and John. He is totally blind without his contacts/glasses. As in, can't even see an inch away from his face. It's bad. I take advantage of this sometimes. mwahahaha! OH! And I TOTALLY feel you about the heels thing! How tall are you? I am 6' tall and so I always wore flats because I towered over guys enough as it was! lol. Luckily I found someone taller!

Crystal ~Skittle Bug~ said...

oh DUH. You're 5'9"!!! Lol. I felt like I missed something there. Got it. Got it. ;)

Lauren Cooper said...

Have I told you HOW MUCH your posts make me laugh? Because they do. Every single time. And I don't understand your irrational fear of hot air balloons! Its like a dream of mine to fly in one. Eeeek. I hope that that sentence doesn't make you want to vomit. I would feel bad. Yes, quite a bit.
