Beautiful Blogger Award

Oh my!  I've received the Beautiful Blogger Award.  Thanks to Leslie from The Journey Through Life for this award.  I feel so honored that I got picked!

The instructions that go along with this award are as follows:
  • Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
  • Copy the award and place it in your blog
  • Link the person who nominated you for this award.
  • Tell us 7 interesting things about you
  • Nominate 7 bloggers
  • Post the links to the 7 bloggers you nominate.
Hmm.... 7 interesting things about myself....
  1. I love, love, love to travel.  I used work as a flight attendant and flew to many different countries in my younger days.  I wish I had the money and time to do that still.  There is still so much to see and do out there!
  2. I LOVE food.  I am a big fan of sushi and authentic ethnic food.  Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Indian, Vietnamese, Italian, etc.  I love to try everything!  I love a good steak too.  I think about food.  All.  The.  Time.  I always have cravings.  Ask my Babe, cravings keeps me up at night!  Wouldn't this be fun when I am pregnant and have cravings?  I'll drive my Babe crazy!
  3. I am an adventurous person. I love to try different, adventurous (crazy) things.  I have skydived, scuba dived and bungee jumped, and I love rollercoasters and theme park rides, the scarier the better. I am hoping that I will be able to try hang gliding, parasailing, cave rafting and Zorbing some day.
  4. I had really bad teeth growing up.  Even though I wore braces for a couple of years in high school, my dental work started way before then.  When I was little, I had 4 extra teeth that had to be pulled to allow my two front teeth to come out.  Then I had to wear retainers even before I started wearing braces because my teeth were so screwed up.
  5. I'm short.  I'm only 5'3 and my Babe is 6'4".  We have a 13 inch difference in height.  People say that we make a cute couple.  I think they mean odd, but are too nice to say.  Dancing with my Babe is a real challenge!  I always joke that my Babe loves to be looked up to, and that I am occasionally his leaning post.
  6. I met my mother-in-law before I met my Babe.  Though my Babe and I went to the same college, we never met until later.  He majored in engineering and I was in business.  My MIL was a non-traditional student, she went to college after getting married and raising 4 of her 5 kids.  My MIL and I were in the same evening class though we never really knew each other.  When my Babe and I started dating, we arranged to meet my Babe's mom for the first time.   He said, "Oh yeah, my mom says she knows who you are.  You were her classmate".  I thought "Oh crap!  I hope I didn't say anything stupid in class".  My professor then was also my advisor, he and I used to give each other a lot of crap in class.  Luckily my MIL and I get along really well.
  7. I am currently not employed and I do not miss working.  My hope is to get pregnant soon and stay home with my baby.  I am finding that I am a much happier and healthier person after leaving my highly stressed job.
In returning the favor, I nominate the following bloggers for this award:

Enjoy the Beautiful Blogger Award, ladies as you have made the blog world a beautiful place.

Thanks again to Leslie!


  1. Thanks for the award! I had a retainer before braces too, and I've had braces twice! I sympathize with your teeth.

    happy Weekend!

  2. Wow, we have A LOT in common.

    I love to travel, I had bad teeth and had to have teeth pulled and wear a retainer before I got braces, I am an adrenaline junkie, I'm 5'3, I met my SIL at a wedding when I was dating her co-worker, before my DH and I started dating, I am not working and hoping that I will get preggo via IVF so I can just stay home with my baby.

    Weird huh????

  3. thank you so much for the award! and thank you immensely for your kind comments on my blog. i appreciate the support so much. xo.

  4. Awww! You are just too sweet to me :) I appreciate the award and enjoyed reading about your cute self :) Love that you had a class with your MIL and that you are no longer working and your stress level is less. I went part time when we started trying to get prego, as I too had a highly stressful job. Currently, I work when projects arise that I have to consult on.

    HUGS & Thanks again for the award!

  5. I too am number 1,2,3 and 7, all the way. But my teeth are good, I did not meet my MIL before marriage but thank God I met her after and before she passed away in 2000, and I am not as short as you are. LOL xoxoxoxo

  6. Congrats on the award!!! Too funny about meeting your MIL! And I had one extra front tooth, which has caused me issues to this day, so I can't even imagine what kind of havoc four extra would cause!!!

  7. Wow, 13 inch difference. I get a crook in my neck just with my DH being 7 inches taller.

  8. Thanks for Sarah from I just got nominated again for the second time. Thanks Sarah!
