I'm no longer a virgin!!

OMG, I received my first Blogger Award!! Whoot, whoot!!!

Hmmm, let me clear my throat so the speech can begin!

I want to thank Katie @ Will Race forCarbs for taking my virginity (blogger award virginity people, you dirty minded bloggers) and giving me this great award!! It's a pleasure reading her blog, and I feel honored that she thought of me out of all the people she could have gave this reward to!!

Okay, all seriousness, head over and check out Katie's blog if your not already following her, click the link and start following. She won't let you down.

There are a few basic RULES with this award:
You have to thank the giver and provide a link to that persons post – DONE
Share 7 random facts about yourself – Keep on reading, Interesting stuff below, haha
Award 15 other newly discovered blogs the same award

Random Facts:
  • I like to thank of myself as being “physically” tough. I can take pain pretty well. However, I'm not really “emotionally” tough. I tend to wear my feelings on my sleeve, which at times is not a good thing.
  • I have one tattoo, its a band on my left arm. Although I don't mind tattoos at all, sometimes I even think about getting another, but after I got this tattoo I was already regretting it within a few weeks!
  • I have only had 1 “real” job since being out of school. I worked for a Insurance Company for 14 years before resigning and starting my own business from home. Although there are advantages of working from home, there are also disadvantages. Especially with relocating just over a year ago, I feel like I don't get out much in the community except the gym and ball games, and the only REAL friend I have here is a neighbor! I have thought about getting a part time position somewhere to be able to get out and meet people.
  • I have a fear of flying. I have only flown about 5 times, my first time being just about 4 years ago. I literally cried the first time. I just hate the thought of the plane crashing and the whole time its descending knowing what the outcome will be. If my time is coming, I'd rather not know about it!!! I would much rather drive places, but Tom hates the drives so we have to compromise.
  • When I'm driving alone in my car, I think I'm a great singer!!! I rock it out, it comes from the soul :)
  • I was and probably still am a tom boy. I always loved playing outside with the boys, tag, basketball, football. I even played Powder Puff in high school and was the QB.
  • I have 2 brothers and 1 sister who mean everything to me!!! I'm sure we had our share of fights and battles when we were kids but as adults we are all really close. Our ages are kinda spread out. My sister Wendy is the oldest, then me, then my brother Billy, then we have our youngest brother Tyler who is just 12.

Now I get to award 15 other bloggers! WOW, fifteen?? Seriously?!?! That's a lot, I'm not sure I even have 15 people I follow....well I'm sure I do, but 15 is a lot!

So here goes, I just put these in Alphabetical order:

Bluegrass Tri Chick – She's a fellow KY girl who run and cycles, hoping she gets better soon
Chasin Bunnies – She is a cyclist, and a runner

I didn't go into lots of detail about these girls but, I have enjoyed ready their blogs and the motivation that they provide me. We all have days when we just feel sluggish and it does help to have some encouragement from fellow bloggers!!!
