1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.

7 Things You Might Not Know About Me:

1.) I am 5 feet 11 inches tall. Love being tall, but not taller than EVERYONE when I enter a room. I get asked "How tall are you, anyway?" about 50 times every time I go out.

2.) I have 3 sisters, and LOVE it. Two are twins, Adie and Haley and they are now 27. I am the oldest, 30. And the youngest, Maggie, is 21. Maggie and I call ourselves the "other twins."

3.) My dad played professional baseball. He got drafted in the second round right out of high school. SO STELLAR. Now he gives hitting lessons, even to my girls, on a weekly basis. My mom was a TRAMPOLINIST in high school. Don't be jealous... this is where me and my sisters inherited our trampoline skills :)

4.) My maiden name is VIEFHAUS. That is where the HAUS in Haus of Girls comes from. Very German family background.

5.) I played Softball, Basketball and Track throughout high school. HORRIFIC at Basketball even though I am almost 6 feet tall! Got a softball scholarship to Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and loved every minute of it. Guess who joined me there my senior year? My twin sisters Adie & Haley! So excited I got to play with them again, just like we did in high school. Our lineup was one, two , three HAUS!

6.) After college, I worked as a Private Investigator for five years. I saw the craziest, most unbelievable stuff. I loved it. We followed cheating husbands & wives, served divorce papers, followed the people who filed worker's compensation claims, took pictures of vehicle accident sites, background checks and so much more. It was such a great job, but it had crazy hours at times. Going from two children to three got a little too hectic so now I am home with my crazy girls!

7.) I can somewhat speak German. I took FIVE years of it through Middle & High School. Me and my sisters would always talk to each other in German and annoy my mom. We used to do it the grocery stores also, when we were younger, and trick other shoppers into thinking we were foreigners. Oh the memories.....
Now, I'm nominating:
HaleyV6 (my sis!)





Thanks again for this award Heather!!

My maiden name is Verhoff, also VERY german! Verhoff is what I was called in sports my entire life. I wasn't planning to change my name when I got married but Case was a really nice upgrade. Anyway when I was trying to decide whether or not to change my name, I walked around saying it like "Dr Laura Case" and "Laura Case, PI." I told my husband I would only change my name if he would refer to me as Laura Case,PI.

Anyway when we exchanged wedding gifts, Jon got me a magnifying lens with Laura Case PI engraved on it. So I was SUPER DUPER excited to read that you used to be a PI for real!!
