what… me?

I have been M.I.A the past week or so (in virtual life, work life, and social life) due to my injury. But after a weekend filled with muscle relaxers, sleep, and Dan catering to my every need, I popped in quickly to notice I got nominated for the Bouquet of Three Award. Thanks y’all (as a true southerner would say, which I am feeling today).There are rules tied to the award, and mostly it is (I think) to help keep us connected to one another, and promote those who we enjoy, as much as they enjoy our blogs.

1. Display your award picture, on a blog post. – Check!


2. Thank the person who nominated you, link them back in your post.

Thank you followyourheartandlifewillfollow and wannabehappycamper (btw I always love everyone’s names… I think I picked mine in a drunken moment by comparison)

3. Pass the nomination on to 15 Bloggers you have recently discovered.

This is kind of the hard part- because I think the “newer” I follow may have already been nominated (also I slack on the following part of blogging… and other stuff I’m sure), but here are a few that I enjoy. (Maybe you will too)

4. Contact the Bloggers, to tell them that you have nominated them – as soon as this is published! 

I will likely forget this part… Whoops! Blame it on my ab spasm/ medication-induced trance 😉

5. Finally, share 7 things about yourself

1. I live in the same town I grew up in.

Yes, yuck! I always pictured living somewhere else, and even did for six years, but I came back in ’09 for the job opportunities, and now love Raleigh, North Carolina.

2. I have my MA in psychology

And I am a huge stats/research/numbers nerd. I live in databases every day, giving numbers meaning through statistical analyses. Somehow, I still love working with people/clients as well.

3. I have officially paid off my student loans (Woo!)

(But am still in debt about $10K because I have a new, well 1-year old, car)

4. My old car (’99 For Escort ZX2, aka Essy) had a bumper sticker ‘Friends don’t let friends drink starbucks. Support your local coffee shop’

So I would park away from the Starbucks when I did frequent it, because I didn’t want to look like a hypocrite. Though, I’ve also been known to drive 5 or 10 minutes out of the way to drink not Starbucks coffee. Sorry (not sorry, at all).

5. I have a fat cat.

My old roomie/ gay best friend calls him “Titties”… He thinks it’s hilarious… And if my cat didn’t lie around in such suggestive poses, I would feel bad for him.

Rub me. Love me. Feed me.

#awkwardpetphotosHe loves the holidays…

6. I have had four accidents in my life, and five speeding tickets.

Yet, I swear I am a good driver.

7. I do not have a twitter account.

Not sure I will ever get one. Call me old-school. I used facebook in college (still do), and am on instagram and pinterest, even linkedin, but see no need for twitter…

(I apologize for the typos and spelling errors. I tried to run today, rediscovered my pain, and came home to immediately take a muscle relaxer… Apparently after exercising, it hits really quick and really strong! :-D)

  1. Ahhh finally got around to doing some blog following myself and am so glad I did! Thanks for the nomination! I, too, live in the same city I grew up in. I’m kinda jealous you live in Raleigh, though. Love me some year-round warmth!!

    • Well, it’s not exactly like San Diego in weather patterns, but it’s more bipolar. Was in the 40/50s this weekend (out of nowhere), but is expected to be 87 today… Winters are much milder than Ohio for sure!
