Happy Friday, everyone! This Friday is particularly happy for me, because my mom is coming in to town! I am so excited to show her the new house, take her to some fun places around Atlanta, and bring her to church on Sunday!
So what am I supposed to do with this “award?”
- Link back to the blogger who nominated you.
- Paste the award image on your blog, anywhere.
- Share 7 facts about yourself.
- Nominate some other blogs you like for this award.
- Post a comment on each of your nominees’ blogs telling them about the nomination.
I’ve done something like this before, but it’s been a while, so let’s see if I can come up with 7 more facts about myself. I’m really not that interesting, so this might be tricky …
1. I have a love for any TV show involving cooking or food.
Some favorites include Top Chef, Man vs. Food, Cupcake Wars, and any show involving Paula Deen or Giada De Laurentiis.
And in my mind, meeting Sam from Top Chef a few years ago was better than meeting Brad Pitt. Or the president (don’t judge me).
2. I have eaten a marshmallow that has been toasted in a volcano.
I wrote a post a long time ago about my mission trip to Guatemala. It was an incredible experience, and I encourage you to go back and read that post if you never have.
On one of the last days, we had a “recreational day,” in which we hiked up an active volcano.
And as a reward for accomplishing our 7-hour hike, we all enjoyed a sweet treat!
And just FYI, they were delicious.
3. I have zero sense of direction.
True story: The summer before starting 2nd grade, we moved to a new town. On the first day of school, I took the bus home. I was so busy talking (shocker), that I missed my bus stop. When I finally realized what happened, an older kid offered to walk me around the neighborhood until we found my house. But unfortunately, I had no idea where my house was. A couple of hours later, one of my mom’s work colleagues found us and brought us home. All I remember is pulling up to my house and seeing fire trucks, police officers, and my elementary school principal all waiting for me. Talk about embarrassing!
4. I also have zero fashion sense.
OK maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration.
But I don’t know how to put together several articles of clothing from several different stores, plus accessories, plus shoes and make it all look good. If anyone would like to be my personal stylist, I would be forever grateful.
However, I do enjoy buying workout clothes.
Pretty sure I spend more money on running gear than nice clothes.
(And yes, that’s a very old picture. The snow in the background helps me remember why we moved to Atlanta. )
5. When planning a vacation, the first thing I do is find the restaurants where I want to eat.
In about a month, we’re going on a Mediterranean cruise. You’d think I’d be researching the best museums in Italy or the sculptures that we have to check out in Spain.
But no. Instead, I’m focused on things like this:
Priorities, my friends.
6. I want to learn how to play the drums.
I know, random, right? But I think it would be fun. Plus, it’s a great way to get out any pent-up aggression!
7. If given the choice, I would stay in my pajamas all day, every day.
I’m a big fan of comfort. And pajamas = comfort in my book. I’d love a job that would allow me to wear them all day. I’m a bit jealous of nurses, because they get to wear scrubs. Sure, they have one of the hardest jobs in the world. And sure, they have to deal with bodily fluids that I’d never go near. But hey, at least they’re comfy, right?
OK time to pass the award on to some blogger buddies!
