Menus of a Mom

Just trying to get the family fed!


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.
