Gorgeous Blogger Award

Hadley gave me this Gorgeous Award and as a recipient I am to say six things about myself that your don't already know, and then pass it along. So here are my 6 things:
  1. I don’t know what nationality I am. I was adopted and my birth certificate says I am from Betty and Ed J not my birth parent(s) All I know is that I am classified as White Non- Hispanic in demographic terms.

  2. I was a big time trouble maker in my youth. I have mended my fiendish ways but I was quite the rebel.

  3. I like birds of all kinds but I don’t like crows. I think they are evil and noisy. If I could legally shoot them I would.

  4. Sometimes I wonder if I see a lady that looks like me that she might be my birth mother. Since I live within a 15 mile radius of where I was born it is feasible that she could still live in the area. It has happened on numerous occasions.

  5. I don’t like Hot Dogs or Bologna. It freaks me out to think of what goes in them.

  6. When I was a baby, I lived in Foster Care for 6 months for my birth mother to decide if she wanted to keep me. The foster parents named me “May” but when I came home to Betty and Ed they named me after their mothers. Katherine was my mom's mom and Sophia Ann was my Dad's mom. I am now Katherine Ann but go by Katie J or Kate.

Now to name 6 bloggers to pass it on to:

  1. Diane at Fit to the Finish
  2. Bonnie at No More Stinking Thinking
  3. Dawn at Fixing Myself Thinner
  4. Sunny at Welcome to the Sunny Side of Life
  5. Ang at Getting Fit after 40
  6. Amy H. at No to the Deuce

Thanks for reading my 6 things and thanks again Hadley! Love ya girl!


  1. Wow, I didn't know you were adopted. I can imagine always looking. My nephew was adopted. He hasn't yet expressed a desire to find his birth mother, I doubt he ever will.

    I can eat a hot dog or bologna once in a blue moon. I crave neither. My husband could eat both daily. :-p~~~~

    Congrats on your award! =)

  2. I hear ya on the crows - evil little buggers. And I think we need more details on this rebellious youth. Thanks so much for the award and sorry I haven't been commenting as much. Life sorta has me down at the moment.

  3. Thank you so much for the award. You are very sweet.

    Katie J - I'm adopted too but have had a reunion with my birth family. It was amazing, and if you'd ever want to "talk" about adoption I'd love to. email:

  4. I'm an adoptive mom. I just read this book The Girls Who Went Away, it was about birthmoms who had to give their children up for adoption in the 50s & 60s. It was a good book, and it made me realize what kind of situations my daughter's parents may have been in. There are a lot of resources listed in the book for adoptees, if you're interested in that. I just wanted to share.

  5. Congrats on the award! I'm fairly new to blogging so only have one... *sob* ;o)

  6. I love all these blogging awards going I have was because of you...*thanks again*

    I also think adoptive children are Special!!!

  7. I don't know how you can hate crows! They're adorable! Of course, I love like almost every animal. In fact the only creatures I don't like are scorpions and spiders. Ugh they creep me out!

  8. Katie, thanks so much for the award that was sweet of you to think of me. I loved reading about you, it's always fun reading new things about people.

  9. Awesome list. Congrats on yet another award!

  10. Congrats on the award! What a great list. I chuckled when you said you were "quite the rebel", lol. Not doubting that you were, it was just the way you said it, so proper!


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
