Awww, thanks!!

Thank you SO much to Preppy Buckeye and Marisa at According to Moi who sent me the Kreativ Blogger Award and The Dishy Decorator who sent me the Cutest Blog Award! They all have wonderful blogs, so if you don't know them already, you should hop on over and check them out!

Both of these awards ask that you list 7 things about yourself that most people probably don't know and then ask others to do the same. There are so many wonderful blogs that I read that right now I don't know where to begin.... But I wanted to go ahead and thank According to Moi, Dishy Decorator, and Preppy Buckeye and share my list of 7 things about me (I thought I would combine them instead of subjecting y'all to 14 things!)


1. My husband and I never lived in the same state until we were married.

2. The day after our wedding, we loaded up a U-Haul and drove to Boston for grad school. It's been a great big adventure ever since.

3. I once saw Lindsay Wagner at the Oriental Hotel in Bangkok and before I could help myself blurted out "The Bionic Woman!!!!!" My husband says she heard me but I maintain that she couldn't have possibly. Because I'm cool like that.

4. I skipped 6th grade.

5. I was a vegetarian for 3 years.

6. I taught preschool in Thailand in exchange for Thai language lessons for Hubby and myself.

7. My hands sweat during airplane take-offs, at the slightest turbulence, and if I even think about being up somewhere very high. Still, I do fly, and have been to the top of the Eiffel Tower, up the St. Louis arch, in that super high skyscraper in Hong Kong, some crazy swan ride I had to pedal high up over an amusement park (Bakken) in Denmark, and on the glass elevator at The Peachtree Plaza in Atlanta. Sweaty hands, anxiety, and all. Uggghhh...

A couple more posts on Las Vegas coming soon!



  1. congrats, and impressive experiences you have, esp. teaching in Thailand:) i always like reading posts like this.....btw,how is "The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo"???

  2. thank you Suburban Princess!
    mrs.a - thanks! So far the book is very intriguing - I've just started. It's funny because my husband has been reading a Danish book - Man Som Hatar Kvinnor (which means Men Who Hate Women) that a cousin in Denmark sent him because it's such a good book... turns out that it is the SAME book - they just call it The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for the English printing! Had no idea we were reading the same thing LOL :)

  3. Congrats on both awards. Well deserved :)

  4. It's been fun reading more about you. Very interesting facts.
