Catching Up & An Award!

Whew, it's been WAY too long!! I have really missed blogging! I seriously have missed your blogs and in getting to put my thoughts on paper (or... well you know what I mean!). Today and yesterday I read every single one of the blogs on my blog roll and left everyone a comment! And can I just say, you all ROCK!! Afterward I felt so inspired and charged! Thank you again! I also was able to finally add a few new comers to my blog roll as well! One I was SERIOUSLY excited about is Heidi from Hi-D Fit by 40. She is the friend I made during my first 5k!! She started her blog and is kicking butt! Do me a favor, let's all help her get going by giving her some followers! Will you stop by and check out her blog and offer her the same killer support you give me?!? Thanks!!!

So a LONG time ago (well okay, on July 11, which is practically a month ago - where is this year going???!!!) I was given the Versatile Blog award, and I never posted about it! I think two people actually nominated me, but I can only find one. So if you are the 2nd person, tell me so I can give you proper thanks!

So here are the rules that go along with this particular award:

1.Thank the person who gave you the award.
2. Share seven things about yourself.
3. Nominate 15 newly discovered blogs.
4. Let your nominees know about the award.


1. THANK YOU Brittany!!! I feel so honored!!! I just love her blog, she shares great ideas, lots of adventures, and has the best blog candy going on right now. BUT wait, I WANT it, so DON'T go to her blog right now... go later... after I WIN it!! :) Thanks again!

2. Seven things about me? Okay... here goes!
    1. I'm a terrible house keeper, especially in our office - it's the dumping ground!!
    2. I was once on probation with my drivers license - too many tickets!!
    3. Part of the reason for number 2, I received two speeding tickets 30 minutes apart from each other!
    4. I have my first tan EVER this summer from being so active outside!!! I cannot even tell how exciting this is!! And that is even in spite of the fact that I ALWAYS wear at least 50spf sunscreen.
    5. I was an awful maid of honor to my best friend Liana. But as she now fits in her wedding dress again, she is having her bridals done - so I get a 2nd chance! Woot woot!
    6. I play the piano - not well - but I do play it. I also played the guitar, flute, and oboe in high school. Okay, those last three I barely played, and really only for a guy. Ugh, the things we do!
    7. I bought a size large shirt and wore it this week!!! :)

3. I nominate the following blogs (not all of these are newly discovered for me, but I want YOU to discover them if you don't already follow them, because they are FANTASTIC and MOTIVATING!!!):
    8. Brandi from
    12. Sarah from who by the way just hit her 100lb mark recently!!!
    14. Dawne from

4. Done!! :)

Thanks again Brittany!!!

I once got pulled over like, 30 SECONDS after getting pulled over by another cop!! It was seriously embarrassing, because the first cop hadn't even pulled away yet, lol! I didn't get a ticket though... thank goodness cause my dad would have killed me! :D

Congrats on #7!

You're welcome! I heart your blog!
