an award and some random facts about me

I woke up a couple of weeks ago to a lovely comment from Shannon
at Shannon Sews. She tagged me with the "One Lovely Blog"
award. very flattering and thanks Shannon!

I guess I'm supposed to write 7 things about myself....this should
be interesting. Bear with me while I make a goober of myself!

1. I sort my Skittles-
whenever I eat Skittles, I have to sort them by color and then eat
them in this order: yellow, purple, green, orange, and red.
Honestly, this is the most OCD thing I do....I'm not really all
that particular with anything else. Just Skittles.

2. I made a dress from old curtains-
My senior year of high school I got REALLY into sewing for myself.
I made all of my formals that year one of them being made from
some old blue shimmery drapes that I picked up from the thrift store.
Looking back it was a hideous idea but nobody had the same dress!
I love originality!

3. I like to sing-
I've been a singer all my life (not the best, but not bad either). I had
great dreams of going pro. I even made a demo cd (super embarrassing).
Instead of singing on a big stage, I sing lullabies and I'm sold out every
4. I love old junk-
Antiques make me happy. Give me a chippy white dresser and
flowers in an old mason jar and I am one happy girl! In fact my idea of
a good time is dinner and an antique shop or some sort of historical
museum. Party animal.....woohoo!

5. I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
(aka: Mormon)-
I've been a member of this church all my life and I love it! I love the
doctrine, I love the people, and I love the opportunities to serve.

6. Running sucks but I do it-
I run mainly for health purposes. I'm not a fast runner and I'm
exhausted after only a mile and a half but I love my chocolate chip
cookies and I figured one day it'd catch up to me if I didn't start
exercising. I probably should lay off the sweets too but I'm not to that
point in my health journey.

7. I'm a chocolate snob-
Let's face it. Europe has the States hog tied when it comes to chocolate.
Symphony and Dove are okay but European chocolate is divine....ya, I'm
that passionate er nerdy about it.

  1. I sort my skittles, too! But not for OCD reasons . . . it's because green and yellow and orange are gross when not paired with a red or purple, so I have to make little groupings of icky flavors with delicious flavors :-) And I WISH I was a chocolate snob . . . maybe that would keep me from eating half a bag of Western Family brand semi-sweet chocolate chips in one sitting!


I don't think I've ever told you this, but I like your comments best of all......shhh don't tell.
