Support her great mission by checking out her wonderful blog at

This award is just a way of spreading the love of blogs and supporting this community with its vast assortment of experiences and topics.
I am going to share some facts I would otherwise not mention, as they do not really go with my mission of my blog:
7 facts you would not know…
1.) I may or may not have ADD, but don’t we all a little. My parents wanted me tested for it in high school, so I obliged. If anyone has ever seen or taken the test, you know it can be maneuvered to create a desired outcome. So, MY test results came back that I did not have ADD, while my parent’s test came back that I did. I guess we will never know.
2.) I fit the saying- Jack of all trades; master of naught. I put my hands in a lot of projects as part of my wayward mind. I just like learning, trying new things, and gaining experience. My husband also shares the passion for trying new things. We have done things from beekeeping to world travel.
3.) I like math. I say I am master of naught, but I am pretty good with math. I do have my degree in mathematics and teaching. With that said, I am no good with mental math. You could tell me do 14 times 15, and I would get flustered. I used to try to sell math like it was the best thing to know. Really, its the problem solving aspect of it and the confidence in failing a lot to arrive at a solution.
4.) I get easily flustered in social situations and encounters. I am one of the most unwitty people you may meet. I think it is because I am a slow thinker. I think of good comebacks a day too late.
5.) My husband and I have a small LLC for owning and renovating real estate. We have purchased three homes now and successfully renovated/restored them to resell. We were able to roll the income we got into investing in some rental properties. Flipping is a great outlet for my husband and I, but it is also A LOT of work. With two young kids and also fixing up a fixer upper we just moved into, we have put the flipping homes on hold.
6.) I am adopted. I was born in Korea to an amazing family who could not afford to raise me. My biological mother sacrificed a lot to have me. My father and mother secretly gave me up for adoption which brought me to the loving arms of my parents and sister here in the U.S. Later on, I did find my biological family. My mother had passed away a year before I did my search. That is maybe the one regret I have- that I did not do my search a little earlier, so I could tell her everything happened how it was meant to happen. We are all connected now. My life is so amazingly blessed with family. I have 5 amazing sisters.. unfortunately, 4 live in Korea and 1 in Australia- the other side of the world from me
7.) I am a Christian. Call me a bad Christian, but I walk with family and friends who are Buddhists, Christians, Non-believers, etc. and I love them all the same. I am not the one to judge. NO ONE should be ashamed for beliefs where loving, helping, and supporting is their way.
So that was a lot. I will not likely do something so off track from my usual mathy and educational things, unless someone is SOO kind to push me outside of my comfort zone again. Thanks again, @god_sweetnector.
Now, I nominate some of the blogs I follow:
