You Like Me! You Really Like Me!

Get outta town!  Christine from Phoenix Revolution bestowed upon me the Beautiful Blogger Award!  How crazy is that?!  Thank you so much, Christine!  You totally made my day!

So apparently I'm supposed to tell my reader seven things about myself that you don't already know before I pass this award onto seven other bloggers.  So, here goes...

Random Fact #1: I read magazines back-to-front.  I learned it from my mom and its the only way I can read a magazine.  Besides, usually the best stuff is at the back anyways. 

Random Fact #2:  I know every.single.word to the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song.  I'm a good time at karaoke, yo. 

Random Fact #3:  I'm a terrible housekeeper.  It's not something I'm proud of, but after nine years of marriage, its something that I'm coming to terms with.  My house isn't DIRTY, it just isn't really picked up or organized.  I do try, I really do.

Random Fact #4: I am obsessed with musical theater.  Showtunes are always on my playlist.  In fact, as I type, I'm listening to Defying Gravity from Wicked.  Two songs after this is Do-Re-Mi from Sound of Music. 

Random Fact #5:  I am a third-generation Colorado native.  And if I never live anywhere else my whole life, I'll die happy.  I am a die-hard Coloradoan.

Random Fact. #6: I'm a wannabe photographer.  My dream is to have a professional-quality DSLR camera and take amazing photos of my friends and family.

Random Fact #7:  I have a TON of freckles.  Seriously, I'm covered.  In fact, my oldest son once heard me complaining that I'm so pale and he said, "mommy, maybe one day all your freckles will come together and form one giant freckle and you can finally be tan!"  hahah, I love that kid.

Ok, so thats seven things about me.  Now I have to pick seven bloggers to pass the Beautiful Blogger Award on to.  Hmmm.... this is a tough one.  I'm going to pick...

1.  Jordan from Three Little Birds
2.  Janice from Banded and Blogging
3.  Jen from Life's Little Journey
4.  Linda from Linda's Bandwidth
5.  Ashly from Looking Ahead
6.  Ronke from Young, Black, and Banded
7.  T from Diary of a (Former) Fat Chick

Thanks again, Christine!  Happy Blogging, everyone!!


  1. Thank you so much for the Beautiful Blogger award! It is my first award! You are so sweet!
    I read thru your entire were just banded about a couple of weeks after me. I can relate to so much you are going thru. I have a loud hiccup (single/two at most) at the most random times. Kind of bizarre. :) I can not figure out how to follow you on your blog. Can you add a widget for followers? Congrats on your great weight loss so far! You are doing great!!!

  2. Thank you, Jenny! :c) I had no idea you were going through all of this...but it looks/sounds like you're doing so well. Congratulations on taking control of your life. :c) I can't wait to see your progress!!

  3. Congrats! (BTW I think musical theater and Colorado all rock hardcore.)

    Now this is a story all about how my life got flipped, turned upside down. And I'd like to take a minute for you to sit right there and I'll tell you how I became the fresh prince of Bel Aire!

  4. Thank You Jenny! I love awards!! I'm a freckle girl too!

  5. Thanks Jenny!! Very cool!!! Made my day too! :) Well, a cheeseburger would have REALLY made my day...but I digress... THANKS!!!

  6. Just found your blog. I'm hoping to get banded on July 9th so I'm very interested in following your journey since I'll soon be following behind - I hope. Unfortunately I still haven't gotten insurance approval yet. P.S. - I had the pleasure of meeting one of your beautiful bloggers - Linda - and she is definitely worthy of the nomination.
