Thanks to Rebecca for my first blog award!  Go visit her blog!  She just got GREAT news!

  • List 7 things that people may not know about you.
  • Pass the award to 15 other bloggers and don't forget to notify them as well.  The hard part is trying to pick 15 bloggers not chosen by others. Feel free to ignore my nomination if you received it from someone else :)

Since I am also doing the 30 day Blog Challenge, and today's question is:  Day 5 - 15 facts about yourself, I am going to combine the two.
Here we go:
1.  I met my husband online. Yep, we're "that" couple.
2.  Feet gross me out.  I've gotten better over the years.  I used to not be able to paint my toenails or wear open toed shoes.
3.  Speaking of shoes, I HATE shoe & purse shopping.  I'd rather spend the money on something like a new pair of jeans or a sweater.
4.  I'm a pretty frugal person, but love buying for and spoiling important people in my life. Especially our nieces and nephews.
5.  I'm very picky about grammar and sentence structure. I proofread just about everything -- including books and the newspaper!
6.  I crave milk after I exercise.
7.  I once walked 60 miles over the course of 3 days to raise money for Susan G. Komen.  Life changing experience!
8.  I believe massages should be covered by health insurance.
9.  One of my proudest accomplishments is getting and paying for a masters degree while working full-time (and traveling a bunch for work).  No loans.
10.   I am doing a job I never imagined I would do in a field I never imagined I would be in -- and I LOVE it!
11.  That being said, I would love to be a house wife (and mom)...like June Cleaver.  Seriously. 
12.  I love to read, but it is generally fiction that I don't have to think too much about.
13.  I suffer from frequent bouts of insomnia -- my mind just doesn't shut off (which leads back to the importance of #8)
14.  My dad is my hero. 
15.  I came very close to failing Spanish in college -- languages just aren't my thing.

So there you have it.  Looking forward to reading the lists of you other ladies...


  1. Thanks for the award, JJ! And guess what? Hubby and I met online, too! Way back when it was weird. lol. :-)

  2. Thanks for the award! I met my husband online as well (E-Harmony) and we've been married almost 4 years=)

  3. Too funny ladies. It seems it is more and more common, but it was just starting to appear when we dated and got married.

  4. Thanks for the award hun!!! Ummm and yea massages all around please!!
    Have you read On Folly Beach? I am reading it now and it's pretty good (and easy)

  5. I will have to check that one out. Thanks for the title.

  6. Hourray for number 5! Currently, my biggest pet peeve is around the disintegration of correct punctuation in written signs. For example, at my gym, they have asked that we avoid wearing "perfume's". Drives me up the wall.
    Thanks for your comments on my blog JJ. I appreciate them very much.

  7. Hey, thanks for the award! I met my husband online too, nearly 6 years ago. Chemistry.com was what worked for us. We always joke about being scientifically matched to a similar level of emotional instability!

  8. Nomniated you for the Liebster Blog award=)

  9. Thanks for the award JJ! I cant wait to get it on my blog and share it with other fellow bloggers! :)
