And The Award Goes To....

I cannot wait for Awards season...especially the Oscars...
Anyway, today I see that I have been given the Stylish Blogger Award by my dear running friend Melissa over at Melissa Dishes...I cannot wait to get to run with her on New Years Day when she's here!  We are still going to run aren't we?!?!?!??!  :O)  Thank you Melissa for the award!!!

*To accept this award, there are 4 rules:*
1. Thank the person who gave you the award.
2. Share seven things about yourself
3. Pass the award on to bloggers you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic.
4. Contact the bloggers you picked and let them know about the award.
Seven things about myself huh???  Gosh...Some of you may already know some or all of these, but I have a lot of new readers so I might be repeating some things I have listed before..
  1. I lived in Las Vegas for 7 years, and no I was not a showgirl or a black jack dealer, nor did I live in a hotel
  2. I have only been running for 5 years; I hated running, thought it was the dumbest thing ever and was the 'gym rat'...some still think so much cardio is a waste of time and that weights ARE where its at, but I like my time divided recently:  running, hot yoga and some strength training.  But to run marathons, you kinda got run a lot :O) and I love marathoning...
  3. I have always 'been' an extrovert, but that was completely superficial and what some could call 'staged'.  I am actually extremely shy and quite the introvert.  I should have been an actress.
  4. I regret never enlisting in the Army.  Recently I investigated enlisting (swear) but I am over the age to enlist.  I always wanted to be a soldier just like my daddy.
  5. I totally want to be a contestant on Survivor, or the Amazing Race.
  6. I ran away when I was 16 years old for an entire Summer.  After being gone 1 week, I called my sister, told her where I was (they had an APB out on my car saying it was stolen), and I didnt come back home until it was time to start my senior year. 
  7. What else do you want to know?  Shoot me a question in the comments!  :O)
Bloggers I have recently discovered and think are fantastic and think deserve a Stylish Award?
  1. Charlotte - She makes me feel like I'm ok...still with issues...but ok just the same
  2. Bobbi McCormick - I just love her blog, no particular reason
  3. SkinnyRunner - Celeb stalking, cupcakes, seemingly ;o) has the perfect husband and shes a marathon maniac AND she's fast?  Yeah she rocks.
  4. Healthy Tipping Point - Operation Beautiful!  Need I say more!  Love the concept and the blog is just awesome!
You know there are SOOOOOOOOOOO many blogs that I read, and they all give me something to think about, to try, to dream the 4 above are just a sampling, along with my sidebar to every woman out there trying to make it through each day without losing your mind, but also finding the time to put YOU on your list, you all get Stylish Awards!!!

Hey, I'll be on Amazing Race with you! My friend and I were going to audition when the show was in Houston (about 6 years ago), but I found out I was pregnant and she was too busy planning a wedding...I love that show!

heck yes we will run.
I just have to make sure I get back in enough time to wake up the hibernating bear, since he tends to rise around the time of hotel checkouts, even when we are at home and he's not hungover.
