Very Inspiring Blogger Award!


Thanks Viniti of vinicooksveg for the award!

It’s my first blog award.  Woot woot!

The rules of the award are as follows:

1. Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Acknowledge that blogger on your blog and link back.
3. Share 7 random things about yourself.
4. Select 15 blogs for the award.

Some things about me:

1. I’m a CPA now, but I was originally a pre-med student.

2. I loved organic chemistry, so no, that’s not why I quit.

3. I was the pickiest eater growing up.  Like picky picky.  I once went to Taco Bell with a friend’s family and ordered a little cup of shredded cheese because I was too scared to try anything else.

4. Until my daughter was born, I didn’t really cook.  I could ruin a pot of boiling noodles.  Well…I can still do that, but sometimes I hit it out of the ballpark too.  So it balances out.

5. Despite being a completely unhealthy couch potato several years ago, I got in shape and completed two triathlons and a half-marathon before my daughter was born.

6. I was the testimonial and before/after picture on a Lifestyle Family Fitness mailer once.

7. My dad passed away when I was 14, which is still a defining moment in making me, me.

And the nominees are, in no particular order:


Texana’s Kitchen

Peri’s Spice Ladle

The Crafty Cook Nook

Savy Naturalista

No Fries for 365
