Versatile Blogger Award, YAY!

A couple of days ago Creative Noshing nominated me (along with 6 other bloggers) for the Versatile Blogger Award. I’m excited to be chosen – it’s pretty awesome to get recognition from your fellow bloggers, and especially from those that totally rock. Creative Noshing is always posting some pretty creative dishes, not to mention she has a pretty cool background (lived sustainably and bartered with neighbors growing up, was allowed to roller-skate in the house in her younger days, etc.) and I always look forward to reading her blog posts. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

Anyway, so of course there are rules to this award and rules for spreading the love, so here goes…

7 Completely Random Facts About Myself

  1. I ran and finished my first 100 mile trail race last year (Western States 100)
  2. My spirit guides are butterflies
  3. I absolutely love white chocolate (even though I know it’s technically not even considered a real “chocolate”)
  4. I really value time alone, with myself, preferably in nature. Last year I left for a month to stay in a cabin in the woods by myself (ok, not entirely, my dog went with me) and it was one of the best experiences of my life. And no, I never got bored.
  5. My favorite exercise is the burpee. Speaking of versatile. You can do burpees in so many different ways: burpees with pushups, renegade row burpees, bosu burpees, kettlebell pushup renegade row burpees…and the list goes on…
  6. I’ve been practicing yoga for about 4 years and I love it. It’s the one activity I can do without feeling the need to compete with others (amazing for me) or to push myself into the ground. It’s a true practice to heal the mind, body, and soul.
  7. I read the Twilight series and I love every second of it. Shhhhhh.

7 Nominations for the Versatile Blogger Award

  1. Gluten Free Zen
  2. Kofegeek
  3. Lara: On The Weigh Down
  4. Dot Dot Dash

Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandments!

I have been TAGGED by the beautiful DOLLY from ALLABOUTLEMON! She is awesome. Her about me quote says “Greed is an ugly default…but sharing is caring.” I think you can tell a lot by that statement alone. THANK YOU DOLLY!

So I have been tagged to participate in Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandments. This might sound like a foreign language to you (as it did me) but it’s really quite simple and fun – I’m going to answer 10 questions about myself candidly and honestly, so here we go, and here are the rules:

Ten Questions must be answered with complete honesty or Mrs. Sparkly will find you. Mrs. Sparkly-we love you. We Do! Manners and behavior, words beyond reproach… Then tag five other people.

Before I start, I want to share with you MY Mrs. Sparkly. Since I couldn’t find any pictures of her online (she is very discreet), here I am writing my answers under the watchful eye of my very own Mrs. Sparkly…

The Ten Questions:

1.Describe yourself in seven words.

Motivated. Happy. Loved. Athletic. Goofy. Serious. Determined.

2.  What keeps you up at night?

My boyfriend. Dinner dates. Yoga. Movies. The internet and all the fun to be had on it.

3.  Whom would you like to be?

Hm, this is an interesting question. I’d like to be the BEST VERSION of me possible. That is what I have been trying to do for years now, and that is what I will continue to do for the years to come. Yay!

4.  What are you wearing now?

Hahaha, I am wearing some old school GAP pink plaid pajama pants and a blue tank top. Getting ready for bed!

5.  What scares you?

Speed scares me – specifically downhill speed. Fast downhill running, snowboarding, etc. It doesn’t mean I don’t do it, but it always gets me every time. I take being scared as a challenge!

6.  What are the best and worst things about blogging?

Best thing – I love having a forum to post about things I am inspired by, things that motivate me, things that make me happy, and just things in general. Worst thing – sad to have experienced this, but the worst thing is when you post on something that turns out to be untrue. Be sure to check your facts bloggers! And also be sure to let everyone know your mistake.

7.  What was the last website you looked at?

Do you mean besides this one? I was on Sur la Table because I’m obsessed with that store.

8.  If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?

 There are always things to change, or rather, I like to use the term “improve” on. It doesn’t mean I don’t like myself. An example of this is my 2012 Main Resolution, which is to “do less”. I tend to be too motivated, filling my day with work/studies/more work/training for races/etc. that I never took a second to breathe and just “be with myself”. Well, no more. I am spending time blogging (which I’m loving), running for fun, yoga, meditation, spending time with my friends & family, cooking, among many other things. This is an example of just one thing I’m in the middle of “improving” about myself.
9.  Slankets, yes or no?
No, I am all about my leopard print snuggie.

10. Tell us something about the person who tagged you.

 I LOVE DOLLY!! She posts the most interesting things, and best of all, she emits positivity. Her ideas are positive, and thus, her followers are positive. I enjoy visiting her blog so much. Thanks Dolly – you rock!
Alright kids, it’s YOUR turn, consider yourself TAGGED!!
