My Dirty Little Secret Challenge

November is usually the month people GIVE THANKS.  It's the month we count our blessing and share what we are thankful for.  Although we Lollipop Girls at C.S.D. are thankful for so many different things, we would like to throw a curveball your way and we're hoping you won't dodge.

Instead of sharing what we are thankful for this season, we want to share our secrets with you all.  In return, we hope you share yours as well.  There's no shame to this game!

Check out what the Lollipop Girls did for this challenge....

As a child she rode her bike everyday and loved it.  But, when you don't do it for years (say 20) it's NOT TRUE when they say you always know how.  Here she is on vacation this past summer when her daughter begged her to go bike riding.  Although she couldn't and was AFRAID and embarrassed they took pictures of her on the bike anyway to laugh about later.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Ever since her dad spent some time in the ICU a couple of years ago she's had a hard time being away from him.  She never had issues being a apart from her parents as a kid and even though her father is healthy now, she's contantly worried about him.

True Confessions...
Hoping this is just a phase...afraid to admit that her marriage is not in good health...and not even sure she wants to work on it...
ALL ALONE

As far as she can remember, her Mother has used name calling, insults and critisism constantly with her since she was just 4 years old.  Not totally understanding the Lord's decision on making this woman her Mother, she still finds it in her heart to love her and hopes one day of having a healthy mother-daughter relationship that is free of pain.

This Lollipop Girl thinks of "Girly Nights" where you share all those dirty little secrets and she'll be having one this weekend and the weekend after to spill the beans.

Yes, she sleeps with a baby blankie.  Sadly, no, this isn't the blanket from her childhood.  She actually dropped the whole blankie stage at a normal age (whatever you would consider a "normal age" to be).  Once she had kids she thought that blankies were the best thing....for mamas too!  So, she bought her daughter a cheetah print blanket knowing that she wouldn't want any other blanket than the one she was attached to.  So now, she gets to keep the blanket and it goes with her EVERYWHERE!

Just like the rest of the Lollipop Girls, it was hard for me to admit this secret I keep...
"I am a Mother to 4 children (2 boys and 2 girls)." 
You often see bio's and random facts about me stating this.  It's because I think the more I say it, the more I'll believe it.  It's hard for me to label myself "a Mother" when I share custody of my 2 sons with my ex-husband (who has them most of the time).  When their not with me, I feel...

Ok so my entry is #17 titled Obsessed but I posted it as... I'm a WoW Gamer. Whew! There I said it... In this photo I was at one of the GEEK conventions called Blizcon... wich I made a COSTUME for the COSTUME CONTEST of my character in the game! Does that make me a Cosplayer also? YIKES! I had to do something crafty to cover for my eagerness to go to a geek fest, right?

I am a mother of two usually a traditional crafty kinda gal. Member of the PTA and a Military spouse. I love this challenge but honestly it was one of the most difficult BOM (Book of Me) pages I have ever done. Thanks for inspiring pages from your DT.

Happy Scrapping!
