Blogger Award? Who Me...?

This girl got her very first blogger award yesterday from the lovely JessPolka Dots, Pearls, and Pink...OH MY!

Jess is absolutely hilariousss and I often find myself cracking up at the majority of her posts! So if you haven't done so yet...go and visit her blog! No excuses! You'll love it too! 

The rules for this award is to list 7 things about myself that you may not know about me & then pass this award onto some other blogs that I'm lovin'! Well, I can do this!

1. I was adopted and have met my birth mother. Not only does she live in the same city as me, she also worked right across the street from where I was living at the time that we met. SMALL WORLD. right? I have another story to share about this meeting that maybe I will do later this week ;)

2. I own more tennis shoes than I do stilettos. Are your jaws dropped?! LOL Don't get me wrong...I love to get dressed up and wear heels...but I have this HUGE obsession with tennis shoes and buy them way too frequently. Gotta have the stylish one's for the gym (but those aren't the good running ones) so then I've got the good running pair, and the casual pair that look good with jeans, and so on... 

3. I bite my nails and sometimes pick the skin around them. AWFUL habit!! I have been doing it ever since I can remember and it is so hard to quit. I've even bought the nail polish that tastes bad that is supposed to get you to stop, but I just bite my nails anyways. Fail....

4. My husband I are extremely competitive with each other...but in a fun sort of way. We see who can make it home the quickest (while still being safe obviously), who can beat who in a game, who can RAP the best in the car to a song..oh yes, I'm serious..we rock out! I hate losing ;)

5. I get car sick and I CAN'T ride rollercoasters. I do just fine riding in SUV's but I can't ride in the backseat of cars for a long period of time without feeling nauseous. I may or may not be known to stick my head out the window to get fresh air with my friends when this happens :)

As for rollercoasters...nuh uhh no WAY will this girl go on one again! I am THAT girl that has to sit on the park bench at the theme park and watch while everyone else is on their joy ride. I get so sick!! my stomach can't handle it. 

OK..fine..I'll share the most EMBARASSING story ever with you quickly..Picture it: at Cedar Point, a theme park in Ohio, with Billy, my best friend Lindsay, and this guy she was dating at the time. FYI..When I was a kid, I never got sick going on rollercoasters and loved them. I realized my body changed on me this day...

 ...so we waited in line for 2 hours for the first ride (and my only) and about halfway thru the ride I knew I wasn't going to make it. Someone was going to get puked on. Who was it going to be? Billy was to my left, and Lindsay was to my right..and then all those innocent people in the cart behind us. OH DEAR. I held it in for as long as I possibly could and that was when the ride was coming to a stop but we had to wait in line for all the people ahead of us to get off. It felt like the longest minute of my life!! So there it went... I couldn't hold it in any longer and I puked all over myself. Not only was I wearing a WHITE shirt but was wearing shorts and since I was still sitting in the chair it seeped down my legs and all to my butt. Let's just say that the end of this story was that they had to SPRAY ME DOWN with a hose in front of everyone when I got off the ride and they announced on the loudspeaker that there will be a delay because there was a "PUKER" and they needed to clean my seat. I didn't really give a crap about how I looked (which was so terribly awful) because I needed to get to the restroom and QUICK...I threw up for about an hour after that and I didn't want to make everyone else have to leave so I curled up on the benches while they went on the rides. ALL MY FRIENDS still bring this story up all the time!! I won't live it down. HAHAHA :)

6. I have a huge passion for photography and hope to get into it more someday!

7. I am so outgoing but I suck at public speaking! Get nervous everytime! 

~That's all for now! Hope you learned a little bit more about me :)

Now I am going to pass this award along to some awesome ladies who I have really enjoyed  reading their blogs lately...actually, I enjoy reading all of yours but can't give it to every single one and I know a lot of you have already gotten this award this week!!

So here they are...



  1. You crack me up your so funny.
    I think a good ride gone bad has happen to all of us one time or another hun.
    Along w/photography you should try writing a book. You could sooo write funny books like Janet Evanovich.
