You Only Live Once, This Is How I'm Doing It!

An Award?!

OMG guys! I’ve been given my first ever blog award! How awesome is that?

Pretty right?

First of all many thanks to Geninabug who blogs at My Beautiful 604 for giving me the award. Make sure to head over to her blog and twitter page and give her a read and a follow. She’s one of my favs, you won’t regret it.

Here are the rules that go with the award:

  • Thank the person who gave you this award.
  • Share 7 things about yourself.
  • Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic!

1. At restaurants I almost always get the same thing every time. I love food and trying new things so it’s not because I’m picky because I’m probably one of the least picky persons you will ever meet. However, I usually go somewhere because I’m craving something specific from that place. Why get something I don’t really want?

2. My teeth chatter and I shiver when I’m really angry. It could be 95 degrees outside but if you get me really worked up about something my body acts like it’s freezing cold.

3. My drink of choice is Grey Goose and Sprite. I still have been unable to make myself like beer no matter how hard I try.

4. Nothing drives me crazier in hotels than when they don’t have an open outlet by the bed. Seriously, why is it so hard? I use my phone as an alarm clock so I need to have it plugged in near me at night.

5. My dream is to go on a mission trip to India. I want nothing more than to be able to help children over there. Joel and I are trying to make that dream a reality in October. You can find out more or even support us at HelpSend.Us

6. I enjoy going out and partying every once in awhile but given the choice I’d stay home and play cards or boardgames with friends. I kick serious butt at Friends trivia. Just sayin’.

7. Seventeen is my favorite number. I was born on January 17th, Joel was born on November 17th and we got married on April 17th. I’m working on syncing my cycle so that when we do have kids they can all be born on the 17th of some month… Just kidding… Kind of.

And now to pass on the award. There are so many lovely blogs that I read. If you were given the award in the same blog as me I tried not to relist you. Those I did list if you choose to join in the fun and list seven things about yourself I would love to read them. Either way, just know that by listing you here I think your blog is interesting and I’m a regular reader. ::smile::

  1. let me know the next time you’re having a game night!! 😉 i mutually love board games!!

  2. I definitely will!

  3. Aw! I’m so honored to be on your list! Rooting for you to have a baby on the 17th of some month! 😉

  4. Whoo hoo! Congrats on the award and thanks for passing it on. I feel so honored. 1.) Tim and I have been dieing to visit India for as long as we have been together 2.) I eat the same things at restaurants too and 3.) that’s awesome about your birthday/anniversary dates. As someone who was born on her father’s birthday- try. . . it’s awesome!



  5. Awww, thanks!!! You’re sweet. 🙂

  6. 1. thanks you

    for the award and for telling me where the hell the comments were. Yes, I need an actual arrow to show me. God bless you and that dog of yours

  7. I had to correct myself. Thank you, NOT thanks you. I guess I also need a spellcheck

  8. Niki and Julia- I will see what I can do about the 17 thing. It would be pretty awesome and hilarious wouldn’t it?

    Jessica- Haha, yes I love the arrows. It’s one of the best parts of this layout. 🙂

  9. I can totally relate with number 1. I have the hardest time ordering anything but the regular. What I end up doing is rather than choosing various items from a menu, I think of what it is that I’m in the mood for and I go to the restaurant that I usually eat that dish at. So, in a way, I’m still enjoying some variety, just not all in one place. That would be CRAZY!

    Thanks for listing me!! Going to pass this on for my next Friend Friday post. 🙂

  10. I never thought of it as a variety but not in the same place. That’s exactly right though! That’s how I’ll explain it from now on 🙂

    Look forward to seeing your list 🙂

  11. I am THE SAME WAY at restaurants! In your defense, you’re not picky, but I am. And I get sad when I don’t get something I like. Like more sad than I probably should because I don’t get out much.
