You Like Me....You Really Like Me!

Cue the Jim Carey clip here! Boy am I feeling the love from bloggy land being nominated twice for :Yesterday I was nominated by B.O.B here. I love reading her blog and often times find myself laughing out loud. She's hilarious and a kick butt runner! Today I sat down to find another nomination by busy wife mom runner here. She's on injured reserve right now but is biting at the bit to get back to running! Thank you both so much!!!

Here's how it works:
There are 4 duties to perform to accept this award
1. Make a post + link it back to person who awarded you this award
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Award 7 recently discovered great bloggers (I'm going to include some old favs)
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them they've won!

Seven things about me:

1. I sang with Kenny Rogers in a concert when I was young. My hubby doesn't believe me but I'm sure my parents have the video somewhere!
2. I played softball for most of my life (13 years). I was a catcher and that is where I learned my scrappiness! I played all the way through college and when it was done didn't know how I would live without I run!
3. I cry whenever I see people crying....commercials, documentaries, happy tears, and's embarrassing sometimes, like when I'm on a treadmill!!!
4. I eat chocolate in the morning with the rationale that I have the whole day to burn it off!
5. I teach English to children who are new immigrants to the country. Most of them now are Haitians who came to the US after the earthquake. Before my current job I taught Somali and Burmese refugees along with many Hispanic immigrants. The first step was to teach them how to hold a pencil and not try to hunt the class fish...many of them are now in mainstream classrooms and on the honor roll....I expect to see some of them speaking on TV some day!
6. I love reality TV...seriously the more drama the better!
7. I love Jesus!! His faithfulness has remained through valleys and mountain tops!

Nominating was hard since there are so many awesome blogs around. Here are a few!

TAG!!! You're it!


  1. LOL about chocolate for breakfast. You make a very valid point... #5 is too cool!

  2. What song did you sing with Kenny Rogers? The Gambler?? So fun :)

  3. I eat chocolate at any time of day, but I have certainly been known to have a brownie for breakfast without guilt!

  4. Very interesting! I live the fact you are teaching English to immigrants. Must be tough, but rewarding at the same time!

  5. Awww! Thanks for the award! :) I'm a cryer too! :)
